My parents have always referred to ambient as "non music."  And they love classical, n hate ambient.  So I don't think THEY see any correlations between the two.  I don't either. Period. Over n' out!!  :-*

Hypnos News and Announcements / Upcoming Hypnos releases?

I was wondering whatever happened to the planned new release by Viridian Sun and the reissues of Jeff Pearce "Daylight Slowly" and Nebula's second album.  The only news updates I ever see are for new items in Hypnos store...

There is absolutely no relationship between classical music and ambient.  Classical music is temporal, acoustically produced, structured music.  (Good) ambient just isn't. Period.

Hats off to the Faria label for this wonderful album of Budd-like piano mixed with haunting, gently disorienting drones and electronic treatments.  ONe of my favorites of 2009 so far.  The Mac Mavis "Report from the Lake" disc is also excellent.  Some very interesting sounds here, an artist to watch who has his own style. File under: aquatic ambient.  PS: I believe he is no relation to crooner sensation Mac DAVIS.

I agree. I love RST.  How is the new stuff compared to Silent Shore and Frontier, and his Hypnos release? Where can I get these?

I have now gone over all my Backroads purchases over the last 15 years with an extensive laser carbon dating system and conclude they were all previously played before I bought them as "new."  But first I must send them to the DNA lab to confirm the results. ;-)

You're the idiot if you had to do DNA testing on discs to tell if they were used or not! In Lloyd's defense, a lot of the imports were never shrinkwrapped and when they made it to the US they weren't always perfect.  Also I have opened plenty of sealed CD's only to find the disc had a big nasty scratch on it.  It's all relative. 

Not here.

I don't even bother with pre-orders anymore.  Inevitably there's some kind of snafu.

What a shocker.  I did not even realize she was that young!  A sad loss for the ambient world and especially for her husband, my most heartfelt condolences to Will Long.

Although it's unreasonable to expect every mailorder/online music company to be as quick as Amazon, I've run into some recently that really do take their time in getting out items, and I really don't understand this.  The worst offender: RADIO MASSACRE INTERNATIONAL.  These guys proclaim all orders will ship within 7 days of payment, yet my last order shipped 16 days after payment.  Another RMI order I placed before that was similar, took almost 3 weeks to get my item...  I finally received a LOTUSPIKE order after almost 2 weeks, which was shipped from the same state I live in.  I placed an order on a Monday, and that weekend received a message stating my order had shipped.  When I finally received it at the end of the following week, the postmark indicated it shipped two days after it had supposedly already shipped.  Music mail order with speedy delivery: HYPNOS, DiN, Rapoon--they are consistently excellent!

I LOVE Redshift.  I think their website is still, they have a shop to purchase CD's, prices are kinda high but all their albums are totally worth it.  My personal faves would be Redshift Wild 2 and Toll.  The new one, Turning Towards Us, is excellent as well.

Whoa, I definitely did not know that.  That piece that opens the movie is just the most chilling thing I've ever heard.  It was doombient before there was even an "ambient"!  ;D

There was some great "dark electronic" music by Wendy Carlos in the 1980 film "The Shining."   :-*

Would you accept the tag "creepy ambient" for Distance to Zero?

Still like this one a lot after a few more spins.  It should be said, though, this isn't what I'd call a space drone release, it is more "electronica" sounding, with subtle melodies, samples, glitch elements, and definitely more "upbeat" than anything previous by Oophoi, so if you're looking for "Athlit" part two, this isn't it.  Nevertheless, I think it was an experiment with very good results.  Should surprise a lot of fans.   

Wow, that was a very "analytical" review.  Male/female, yin/yang, mental/sensual, you covered it all!  ;)
