Seren, are you working on anything new these days?

1422
Chidlren of Alcyone will be the followup to Children of Alcyone, followed by Chidren of Alcapone.  ha ha

Regardless of typos, this is another great Brand disc.  Highly recommended to all space chidren and chidlren of ambient. 

1423
There's a typo on the disc label: it reads "Chidren of Alcyone."   :-[

Barry Craig=Barry Andrews from Shriekback? Look closely...

But seriously, I got this Garcia disc today.  I think this is far from the best thing he's done.  The first two tracks were pretty ho-hum.  The third piece, "From the Bottom of the Sea," is great (maybe my fave Garcia piece) but it is NOT new, this was on the "Maybe Forgotten Forever" 2-disc retrospective several years back.  I was really looking forward to the 18-min. "My Minimalist Life", only to find it overly long with a repetitive and quite annoying theme. Nothing worse than a bad idea extended to almost 20 minutes...Trance Port could take some tips from Hypnos Secret Sounds on how to do a CDR release right: don't use sticker labels (the one on my copy was somewhat haphazardly placed on the disc, and I can feel a "bubble" between disc/label, it also overlaps slightly over the center spindle); don't use cheap paper for the booklet.  Overall, a decent release but musically the pieces are really different.  I would say this is more like a collection of tracks than a cohesive, flowing thing.  I would recommend "Maybe Forgotten" over this one.

Oh, NOW I see--Stokes is really A Produce!!!

I'm with 9Dragons on this issue, also.  If something's going to be released then do it the right way--a physical product!  :o

Well I've been wondering if "M. Griffin" and "D. Fulton" are the same interchangeable ambient entity.  You never see ANY pictures of those guys together.  The only pics you see of "M. Griffin" are usually on the back of the CD booklets and it's real hard to tell what he actually looks like, what with all the swirly psychedelic photography obscuring the faces.  Come to think of it, I'm starting to wonder if M. Griffin and Saul Stokes are the same person.  This is getting weird... ;D

Received this Monday and must say it is an excellent pure atmo work from Steve.  The Magnificent Void has come to Earth and vacationing in the Sonoran desert.  Especially effective at high volume on a good pair of closed-ear headphones.  Turn it up, feel it in your bones!!!  ;D

Should artists who are trying to make a living paint pictures and give them away for free?  This is why I hate how the Internet has f**ked up the music industry as much as it has helped it in some ways* (*by giving people more exposure to new music).  It seems some people just don't want to pay anything for music anymore and don't see it as buying a piece of art, they see it as "too expensive" so they decide to steal it (burn copies for/from friends, download illegally, etc.) instead of pay the artist.  If you were an ambient artist and spent a lot of time creating your music, how would you like it if you weren't getting paid for your time/efforts?  ???

Please shutup and post some MP3 samples of the new HSS disc by Steve Brand, or I may have to pirate it.  ;D

1431
This is an amazing disc, seek it out if you like deep floating ambient.  Thanks to the review on Electroambient Space.  This album delivers what I had hoped the Eluder CD on Infraction would do. ;D

1432
Thanks man! I just ordered the Uruk-Hai release, awesome sound sample.  Thanks for pointing these out.  I wish more people would post suggestions here like this instead of exclusively in "Currently Listening."  8)

The last I heard (which was quite a few years ago), Elmar was doing techno/club music.  I believe on that website there was an announcement hinting there may be a followup to "Nocturnes."  You might want to try contacting Rudiger Gleisberg via his website, who worked with Elmar quite a bit and might know something.  Very nice guy, too.   :)

Shades of Orion 2 and Shades of Orion 3 (both w/Namlook) are two of my all-time fave DID's.   

1435
Where can you buy those Japanese versions ?

You can get them at Amazon.  If you google it should also give you a list of alternative online retailers who have these.

Jon Hassell-Last Night the Moon... This is a fantastic album of quietly disorienting texture maps.  Very dreamy, surreal.  Perfect!!

Klaus Schulze-Rheingold DVD.  The concert stuff is a bit long and boring, but disc 2 with a nice long documentary and interview by Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree makes this set worth getting.  Weird to see Klaus without the cigarette in hand.  He finally kicked the habit.  Congrats Klaus!!!

U2-No Line on the Horizon.  Bloody awful (for U2), but a decent pop record nonetheless.  Utterly forgettable above it all.

1437
Am I just imagining it or is the sound quality on the Japan mini-LP replica CD's better than the digipak reissues of the Brian Eno catalog?  I compared Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks --digipak and Japan reissue--and was convinced Japan version sounds better.  I've replaced them all now, with the exception of "The Pearl."  Cannot find a Japan issue anywhere online.

Raison d'etre-The Luminous Experience.  Nice live album.

Killing Joke-XXV Gathering DVD, Hosannas from the Basements of Hell, Nightime, Pandemonium.  I've been on a Killing Joke binge lately.  They put most metal bands to shame with their nihilistic, apocalyptic masterpieces of doom.  Jaz Coleman is truly a warped individual, but I still love 'im.

"Slow Flow" sounds like a future Steve Roach album.  Guess they beat him to the name!

The sound samples are excellent. I will definitely be buying this album.  :)
