I've been enjoying your tracks on the Awakenings series (Ambientlive Records).  Do you have a full-length release?

Hello Sweden! You got some cool tuneage listed there.  also don't forget to check out:

Ultimae label

Ultimae's one of the best electronic labels these days.  I never miss a release.  Getting this one soon. ;D

The super limited (50 copies) CDR to this set is already sold out.

I'd like to see less laptops and more "real" instruments creating ambient music.  12k seems the worst offender to me.  I go on their website and listen to the samples and most of it sounds like computer noodling.

Case in point--the Celer release on Mystery Sea.  I think it sold out in about a week.  Pisses me off I never even got to hear it.  Somebody's selling it on Discogs for 100 Euros.

I need to do some deep headphone listening of this set, but on the big stereo the limited edition disc sounded much better to me (ghostly ambient is a good description).  The main release is mostly environmental/water sounds, with hints here and there of electronic washes.

Oh yeah, Celestial Geometries is my #1 (outer) space album of all time...Atmo Conditions by Roach is way up there as one of his best.

What label is releasing Alio Die live, and when will it be available?

Another one you should track down by Saiz is "Un Hombre Oscuro," live CD circa '95.  Was on a Spanish label.  Virtually impossible to find, I've looked everywhere (Discogs, etc.)!  :o

Trippeeeeee cover!!!

Don't remember seeing mention of this German label on the Forum.  Loki recently released two outstanding CD's: Herbst9 "The Gods are Small Birds" and S.E.T.I. "Corona."  The Herbst9 is sort of dark ambient ritual music, think a cross between Lustmord and Rapoon.  The S.E.T.I. (Andrew Lagowski) is some very deep/cosmic outer space soundtrack, shifting between intense electronic pulses to pastorale drifting ambience.  Definitely putting these two on my Best of 2009 list.

Nobody mentioned Forrest????  :o

Al Gromer Khan's done some oriental sounding ambient.

Kitaro Silk Road 1 & 2, yeah, classics definitely.

I've been posting here regularly since about 2001 when I was "Orion32".  It will be sad and strange without Jim Brenholts on the Forum.  What amazed me most about Jim was his razor sharp wit, honesty, and positive support of this music and the musicians who make it.  He was always positive, I don't remember reading anything but positive words from him here, and that says a lot about someone's character.  My deepest sympathy goes out to Jim's family and friends.

Chris Knowlton   

Oh, and I should add that this release is a very professional looking self-release, from the cover art/booklet to on-disc printing. 

Great interview with Forrest.  The interviews on EAS are always insightful with very good questions.  I enjoy the interviews the most on the site.  However, would like to see some unfavorable reviews once in awhile of CD's...

Hello, just thought I'd share with all drone enthusiasts like myself (with a name like Drone On, what did you expect?) a new label out of Belgium run by Daniel Crokaert of the amazing Mystery Sea.  Unfathomless appears to be more based on environmental soundscapes, from my understanding, than the typical drone style.  First release is by Mathieu Ruhlmann.  These releases will be limited editions of 150-300 but pressed CD's instead of CDR's and a higher quality paper for the booklets (no inkjet printer).  There's also a limited edition companion CDR (50 copies) by Ruhlmann that can be purchased as a special edition set with the main release.  Nice website, too, with sound samples for the two Ruhlmann discs. 

Just got this in the mail yesterday (thanks for spee-dee shipping Steve).  Excellent album!!

It's extremely drifty and ethereal.  Just listen to the most placid parts he did on Steve Roach's "Origins" or the Suspended Memories "Forgotten Gods" and imagine that going for about an hour.  All one long track of drift w/no percussion, unlike "Mirrors of Pollution" which is not really an ambient album but more atmospheric modern jazz/world.  You can't compare Saiz to Fripp or Pearce because he has his own sound.

Hi Phobos,

I've been giving this some deep listenings on the headphones, and this is one fantastic recording!  Definitely one of the best discs in the Ambientlive catalog from the quite a few that I have.  How can I find out more info. about you? I'd be interested to know what kind of gear you use, how long you've been making music, etc....I already know your influences from your MySpace page (Oophoi, Roach, etc.) To anyone reading this, if you enjoy deep space ambient this is an essential purchase, highly recommended.  Very reasonably priced as well, I might add (About $12 postage included).  Look forward to hearing more from you, Phobos!
