Now Playing / Re: Currently listening, part 1
« on: April 08, 2008, 06:39:29 PM »
I'm listening now to the new NIN Ghosts I-IV
and enjoying it immensely. Not really ambient, of course,
but there's some beautiful quiet, sparse pieces
and a wonderful variety of textures and moods.

Steve may have taken up sleeping again.

If I was sick in a hospice and Jeff Pearce appeared to play for me,
I'd think I'd died and gone to heaven!   ;D

Yes - Jeff added a new track to the Terra Ambient MySpace page last December 2007
which is much more current than the last time I added a track to the dreamSTATE MySpace page.
OMG! Where am I now?

Wow John, you emerged from your hypnotic state with many choice descriptive phrases.
I think my personal favourites are "sighing distances", "nervy, penumbral landscape" and "well-drawn shadows".
Very nice work. Thanks.

Bloody Vikings!

I only have a slice or two of Brannan's musical piechart but before I read Bill's comments
I was also going to recommend Sleep Cycles as a very fine ambient album.
Now I don't have to.  ;)

Interesting co-incidence that we just watched Roman Holiday today too.
(I'd given Lynn an Audrey Hepburn DVD box set recently) Sweet movie.

Nice change seeing Peck's character redeem himself after watching
Tony Curtis' character let himself fall deeper and deeper in "Sweet Smell of Success" yesterday.

If you have another computer monitor around the house
try plugging it into the external monitor port and see
what you can get going. You might have to blindly try to
right-click on the desktop, scroll down to the bottom to open properties
then try to grab and drag the Display Properties to the other screen,
then set up for multiple monitors with identical content. It's worth a shot.

I just scanned the Wiki material. I would have thought that Space Rock would have been a subset of Space Music.
Of course, then we'd be talking Hawkwind!

I'll be posting dreamSTATE pieces to the forum here from time-to-time.
(Some of these will have been previously shared with our newsletter subscribers.)
We certainly hope you enjoy them. ~  Scott M2

Scroll to the end for the latest posting - dreamSTATE - Ephemeral City a video excerpt from the infinite app.


In the Dead of Winter - (Scott M2, Jamie Todd)

This piece was extracted from a set dreamSTATE played, right after a major snow storm
in Toronto, on Dec. 17, 2007 at an Altaira Ambient night - presented by Toronto Noise Promotions.


Whoa!  Looks like you're playing your keyboard using some sort of Reiki technique!

Also "Sound of a Universe Overheard" - Cool...  Thanks!

Hi Johns, Best wishes for AtmoWorks Mark II!

If it's not too late John, I'd recommend keeping the domain and just point it at your MySpace page or AtmoWorks. All the old links to you around the web will still be valid and later, if MySpace goes the way of you can just point it to your latest space on the web. Also, if you let it go now, some unscrupulous trader may buy it up hoping to resell it to you later for bigger bucks. These days you can maintain a domain name through a company like Namesecure (with redirect included) for only 7 or 8 bucks a year. Anyway - just had to pass on my sagely advice.  ;) 

Holy smokes Jim - What do you do when you need more space in the Ns for your new Numina CD?
Shift everything over?

That's great news Loren!  Now you can work on the other items on your list.  ;D

Hypnos Label Releases / Re: Announcement: James Johnson and Hypnos

That's great news!  I'm still big on CDs for listening to most of my music and will really appreciate some new releases from James on the silver discs.

Glambient = live performance where the ambient artist wears makeup, glitter, and colourful tights.

Isn't this where we came in?

Sorry, I'm not offering mine for free, but I thought I'd recommend the Novation Remote 25SL
as a very flexible controller. (I don't use the AutoMap feature so far, just program my own knobs, etc.)

Everything and Nothing / HD-DVD vs Blu-Ray war settled
« on: February 19, 2008, 05:55:34 AM »
It looks like Wal-Mart has settled the HD-DVD vs Blu-ray war. That's a lot of power.

"On February 14, 2008, rumors surfaced that Toshiba, the leading manufacturer of HD DVD players and one of its largest supporters, would soon abandon the HD DVD format due to changes in studio and retailer affiliations, including Wal-Mart's decision to phase out HD DVD by June 2008. The rumors strengthened on February 16 when NHK and Reuters also reported, from a source at Toshiba, that they had begun to prepare to cease production of HD DVD equipment, though they would still support existing products. On February 19, 2008, Toshiba made an official announcement to no longer develop, manufacture and market HD DVD players and recorders, ending the Blu-ray Disc versus HD DVD format war."
