Its a private legal matter.  Why is it anyone's business especially if there's some apparent wrongdoing?  Yeah I'm disappointed but I'm not crying about it.  And I support Mathias 100% in his future musical endeavors!

Btw, I'm just stating my opinion, not looking to argue.  :)

Tomas, just playing Devil's advocate here, but you did choose to share this information on the forum.  People are now not allowed to discuss it?  Personally I wish you would've kept the details off the forum as it seems a private matter, and to be honest it's not what Mathias' fans want to hear.  Or you could've just said "for legal reasons" instead of the sordid details.  I really didnt think it belonged on the forum at all.

Apparently this just came out about 10 days ago.  Available from Gterma (label) or Databloem.  Leans toward the "dark ambient" side. 

Finally on "Calibration", an entire track was taken from the previously released album "Perfume" by Klaus Wiese.

Oh geez.  That's really disappointing to read.  :(

Oh yeah, and I missed a very limited edition Move D album called "The Silent Orbiter" CD that was dedicated to Namlook.   LOVE David Moufang.  Damn!

Thanks everyody for these lists.  Interesting stuff!  Lots of googling today for some of this music I missed...

I just listened to the Namlook tribute online last night and the tracks by former Fax contributors (Laswell, Hawtin, Rother, Dr. Atmo, etc.) are stunning.  I'm told the CD box set will be out end of January.  Hence, didn't include it on my list for 2013, but I'm sure it'll be there next year.  Also found out Ear-Rational, FAx's US distributor, has been releasing some CD's that were intended for Fax before Peter's untimely death.  Label is called Carpe Sonum.  So far they put out Indiana Drones by Material Object & Phonaut, and upcoming is a new Mick Chillage album called Saudade. 

Yeah, I love it too, much better album than Shadowplay.

You should call up Mark Prendergast and ask him his "expert" ambient opinion.  ;D

Harold Budd--Budd Box.  This is a wonderful box compiling his Opal/All Saints releases, 7 discs with amazing 70 page booklet full of interviews and liner notes.  All Saints is reissuing a lot of stuff now like Roger Eno and Laraaji.  There is some previously unreleased Laraaji material.  Wonder if it's any good (?)

Robert Rich--Morphology.  Very nice live CD, ltd to 300.  I bought this mainly because it has my fave RR track, The Other Side of Twilight, from Numena.  Only half the length of the original but still great to hear an alternate version after all these years.  The only thing I don't like about this is the metal tin packaging, was never a fan of this going back to the 90s for Recycle or Die, etc.

The Whole Traffic 2 (Fax label).  Electro trance excellence from Dr. Atmo from the mid 90s!

Lustmord - The Place Where The Black Stars Hang

 Because, apparently, this is how I celebrate the holidays....

Lol!!! Have fun  ;D

Thanks for all the info Mike.

To me the cosmic consciousness means one is aware of the eternal past and infinite future simultaneously.   Galaxies, planets, our bodies, cells--all part of one big interconnected universe. 

Will Hypnos release any new CDs in 2014?

Agreed.  But I think his music sounded best between '88 and '96, especially origins and artifacts are two masterpieces.  BTW, I never even bought Groove Immersion...

I dunno, seems a bit lazy to keep releasing live albums from over 10 years ago.   I'd rather hear something fresh and new.  The other new disc sounds okay, but not inspiring enough to invest in.  I used to buy new SR albums immediately without question.  These days I find I'm placing my orders months later or even not at all.  Maybe I'm getting more picky as I get older...

You said Steve roach was totally overrated, then you later said he was brilliant. 

I'm surprised on this Vangelis opinion because there are lots of EM biggies who list him as a major influence.  He had some amazing synth sounds and nobody could really replicate that.
