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.

So you can be brilliant AND overrated?  If someone said I was overrated I would take it as a knock. 

About Vangelis:  I would recommend Soil Festivities and Opera Sauvage to those who think only Bladerunner is worthwhile.  The compilation Themes is also pretty comprehensive for his classic period.  Anything after The City is not recommended.

Are you serious that Vangelis is complete crap???

I don't agree that a lot of artists don't have jobs.  Roach is one of the very few who earn a living doing this.  Others like R. Rich supplement their incomes with production or mastering jobs or designing synths. 

Ordered one last Friday.  There were only six copies left.

This is exactly why the Klaus Wiese box set (no box but 12 discs in the Umbra amplexus-style packaging)is the most valuable item in my collection.  12 volumes of cosmic bowl drones, with some spectacular Gigi artwork.  I would like to share with some Hypnos friends but my burner needs replacing.  I'll post back here later about it.

No, Thom Brennan is in the same category as Roach and Vidna, and thus not drone.  I consider drone to be more of a steady, quiet, minimal sound.  For example, many of Grassows pieces are based on one chord held for the duration of the piece.  You don't find that in Brennans music generally.

Ha, that's interesting!  It could be a good soundtrack to the study of dark matter.  ;)

Huh?  You know, I hope you are joking here dude because that kind of sarcasm is neither wanted nor appreciated.  If you got some bone to pick then PM me...

Oops, I kept thinking this one was 2012:

Closing the Eternity & Mathias Grassow (Aquarellist). Probably my #1 release of the year.
