Another mastering snafu=the annoying "clicks" running throughout track 2 of Oophoi/Vnuk "Distance to Zero" which ruin it. Am I alone on this? I'm pretty sure they weren't intentional "glitch" sounds, and if they were then, well, I guess I just don't understand that one at all.

As far as I know, Steve Roach does his own mastering now and doesn't use R.King...

Speaking of mastering: why is the "Solyaris" CD so LOUD??? My speakers practically blew out at "normal" volume...otherwise it's a faultless release.

This is a compelling and fascinating work of microsound/ambient drone, and the second release on this new sublabel of Mystery Sea, limited to 250 (these are CD's, BTW, not CDR's).  "Tactile.Surface" has more in the way of subtle electronics compared with Mathieu Ruhlmann's Unfathomless release, which was a pretty "dry" recording of mainly field recordings.  Excellent work here, highly recommended to all lovers of organic drone music.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Namlook selling rare FAX on Discogs
« on: February 02, 2010, 07:24:00 PM »
For those unaware, Pete Namlook has been selling a bunch of FAX rarities on Discogs.  They are all new, sealed, "from my personal archives." The rarer ones ain't cheap (although compared to what I've seen them go for on ebay and Discogs, fairly reasonable).   Although it's probably hypocritical of me to say this (because I bought some), if some of these releases were really "sold out" (and many of them subsequently reissued on the Ambient World sublabel of Fax), how have these copies miraculously emerged after 15 years?  Is it "ethical" (maybe too strong a word) to sell albums as a "limited edition," but then keep 10 or 20 to save and make a killing later on?  I can't recall an artist/label owner doing this before (especially with their own music), so if you can think of one post it here...Just playing devil's advocate here, I'm not necessarily saying it's right or wrong, but just posing a question...

Two words: BABE MAGNET.  ;D

Circa 1974: Captain N'Tenille "Love will keep us together"

Circa 1975: Aerosmith "Rocks"; Gary Wright's "Dream Weaver"

Like a Homo Sapiens, I soon evolved from an invertebrate (Kiss) to an Early Man (Brian Eno, Steve Roach)  ;D

Both Children of Men and Synecdoche, New York were horrid movies.  Don't know what's up with this list.

Moon and District 9 = 2 best Sci-Fi movies in many years!

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Live Alio Die and Grassow on Nextera
« on: January 25, 2010, 01:00:47 AM »
Does anyone have these? Haven't found too much info. online about these.  I notice many track titles on the Alio Die sound like familiar pieces.  Is the live stuff much different than the studio versions? Any help is appreciated!

Better order it now or you'll be saying "farewell" to the special edition!

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Parks "Hidden" on Infraction
« on: January 23, 2010, 01:34:25 AM »
Another excellent addition to the Infraction catalog.  Don't think it's as good as "Umber," which had a more classic mid-90's feel to it (Hidden has more modern electronica style and more "song oriented" due to vocal samples), but still very good.  What's the consensus of people who have it?

Whatever happened to Glenn Deardorff??? (not saying this is the guy BB just described, but it made me wonder about this artist who just seemed to disappear!)  8)

I received Siberian Winter and I agree, brilliant disc.  Also about the fact it is more dynamic (not necessarily better, but style wise the first N.Depths was more subtle).  Highly recommended.  Nice job Thomas and Mathias!

The aptly titled "Reverberant Skies" by Aglaia is the ultimate in drifty bottomless float.  This album has enough reverb for 10 ambient albums!!! Highly recommended (and can't wait to get the other two new ones in the recent trilogy).
