I use a repeater and 2 dd-20s for maximum ambient looping :)

the first four volumes were released by a different company and were definitely silver pressed CDs, with a black vinyl effect label on top, the new ones are on what appears to be a black CDR, as bottom is black too, unless someone has started pressing black CDs...

Three teams. Four artists to each team.
Each artist created a layer and then forwarded it to the next team member. What you are about to listen to are end products.
Three stunning and beautiful ambient pieces of work.

Sonic Strata 2.
Part 1 created by Tange, Annode, eigensphere, Modulator ESP.
Part 2 created by usr/sbin, Gregg Plummer, Sonoprint, Somnarium.
Part 3 created by Steve The Keys, Altus, Litmus0001, Jujigen.

Concept: Sonoprint.

Having put on and attended lots of ambient/EM gigs over the last few years I find that 'karaoke' style EM can be OK if it is done well and is entertaining, but personally I find it a lot less engaging than a real live performance, where all the elements are performed live and there is little or no pre-recorded backing

well, I couldn't organise a tour, but I could probably help with a local date

or there's always Awakenings in 2011

Everything and Nothing / Re: The price of CDs
« on: March 22, 2010, 02:19:07 PM »
I very rarely worry about the cost of a CD if it's something I want

I am more easily tempted to try stuff if it is less expensive and quite like bulk purchase offers

I would never not buy something because it was too cheap

Streaming midi would be quicker but would be much more of a limitation for me, as I don't use soft synths and do a lot of realtime looping and sonic manipulation

I've done quite a few live sessions over the internet using shoutcast radio software, it's only 128kbps mp3 and there are large delays but if you are doing non-rhythmic stuff it can work pretty well

and each end can record at higher quality for later re-combination if desired

It looks like top synth is a Korg MS-2000 and the bottom one is an Oberheim OB-12

I quite like it, even though it is even more of an SF soap opera than BSG

Everything and Nothing / Re: Pressed CDs and independent artists/labels
« on: February 22, 2010, 02:09:40 PM »
I like music, I prefer it on CD, but if I really want it I'll buy it on whatever format it is available in, vinyl, cassette, CDR, download, whatever

I like ambient because it is free of any direct emotional communication, it doesn't tell you what to think, or how to feel like most 'popular' forms of music.

This might be why a lot of people don't like it

Everything and Nothing / Re: Questions for artists and labels re: Piracy
« on: February 19, 2010, 02:20:09 PM »
my answers

1. As a result of piracy I have decided it's not worth trying to sell stuff. I enjoy making it and I enjoy sharing it with people, I just don't think there's much point in attempting to "release" it. Having said that I do make cDRs to sell at gigs, which is nice :)

2. So like I said at 1. piracy has influenced my decision to mostly give my stuff away, as giving it away is a lot less work than trying to sell it and I get to spend my time making music rather than worrying about it not selling.
