Scion (Asianova side project).  Asianova was an early incarnation of Voice of Eye.  They created these really out there soundscapes of heavily processed female vocals, synth and guitar.  Like an intense acid trip, sort of scary actually.  Scion was Ure Thrall, of Asianova, with a different female vocalist.  I can't even find this on Discogs.  Bought at Amoeba about 7 years ago.  CDR.  Excellent nighttime headphone trip music.

Don't know if it's a comeback.  He never left.  He just released this solo apart from BKS.  It's pretty good, no beats, just gentle percussion.   

In that video above, which live version of On this Planet is playing?  Sounds different from the CD version. 

Why does a book of photos cost $130???  This is excessive.  I can see paying $50 or $60 for something like this.  I bought William Lesch "Expansions" desert photography book from Roach back in mid 90s.  I think it was like $50.  Beautiful and well worth it.  I'll be content to see some photos from vortex concert in the CD booklet. 

Did you order these new Vortex titles?  I did the combo pack for $30.  No mp3 up so I'm buying on sheer faith.  I passed on the $130 book of images from vortex concert.  Both CDs and book for $160.  If you live outside the US it'll cost $60-$70 just to ship it.  So that's $220.  Holy shiiiiiit....

I hate to say it, but isn't this just a little too "too"??  (I mean the book part).  I don't know if pretentious is the word.  Seems a bit excessive.  Limited to 100 copies.  Well ok but who's going to pay that? 

Is the Tide Pool CD still happening? 

Chris23, too bad they didn't have this before you bought 100 Ishq CDs!   ;)

I can see this appealing to ambient newbies.  Purchase the entire DiN catalog for half off is a great deal actually.  If you like/don't mind downloads.  If you've got a bunch of DiN CDs already, chances are you've bought what you liked and passed on the unappealing releases, so you don't want stuff you'd never listen to.

I think he said that 3 years ago, but if it's true then I'm a happy camper!   ;D

I'd rather listen to Steve talk about his music than read descriptions, self penned or not.  Having had some in depth conversations with him back in the mid 90s, I was always impressed with his ability to describe the inspirations and  feelings about the music, in a very intelligent, visceral, insightful and almost poetic way.  His passion is really inspiring to hear.  Maybe the website CD descriptions can get a little samey, but as pointed out, it's a difficult to describe genre of music.  and I don't think there's any importance necessarily to sell or promote the music.  His fans are fans and they're gonna buy it regardless of a written blurb.

Ishq--In a Rainbow Air.  Not near as impressed as Chris is.  The Florascopia I liked more, but it's very uneven.

Aglaia--two new discs on hic sunt leones.  One of them has a brief glitch/dropout that's strange.  I thought my CD player was malfunctioning.  Mr. Alio Die never answer my email so  it's a mystery.  These albums are good but nothing new from the last few years.

I thought they said AOC 6 was the absolute last one!  Then again, Namlook said Dark Side of the Moog 6, or was it 8, was the end, and that series went to 11...

Could be.  Although I don't think he really went anywhere in terms of popularity or sales, to come back from.  He's done a lot of projects the last 10 that's for sure.  I think it's amazing to see him still so active.  Art is life, as they say.

Yes, you read that right.  15 years after the retirement announcement, His Royal Budd, definitely one of the gods of the ambient realm, is going online soon with his own site.  Can't wait to see this. 

Do you know how big Klaus' entire Catalog is?  Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuge.  Even if they release a CD per week it would be 10 years later.

Are the Oophoi and Corbacho discs still coming out on Hypnos?

You're right.  Well I must have seen it somewhere, guess that wasn't it.

Yes, Mathias Grassow, who was involved with the El Culto website, has a statement about this on his website.  He states there is no permission (for anyone) to release Klaus Wiese material, especially in re-mixed/remastered form, and the Indian label owner is a made up person (which if true is pretty uncool). I heard El Culto re-released Grassow's Himavat album without Grassow's permission, which would be pretty uncool if it happened to any artist. 

But again I wasn't there and can't make a judgment without any proof.  I haven't seen or read any of Thomas Weiss' statements or response to this topic.  Don't really care to, to be honest.   

Personally I think the subject should be laid to rest and everyone move on and just enjoy the music.  Life is too short.

If you like the dark, gloomy Berlin school sequencer music, check out Cosmic Ground from Germany.  Two excellent CD's (or downloads) on Bandcamp. 

This doesn't sound like a good situation, yet I don't have all the facts so it's hard for me to reach a conclusion.  I've often wondered if Klaus' family or friends have publishing rights and how it's decided or not to release the music.
