Checking out on Spotify.............

Robert Rich - Calling Down The Sky, Echo Of Small Things and Electric Ladder Very nice indeed. Away to put in an order for Nest and one of these discs.

And..............


Steve Roach - The Desert Collection, Vol 1 CD. Really loving this desert ambient. Superb collection. Nice artwork also.

Just received my discs from Steve. Beautiful album indeed, several listens pending between this and the Desert Collection which is equally superb.

Will be in Steve Roach mode for a good while methinks  8)

Nice photos Pete.

I am thinking about getting back into photography. Used to have my own darkroom set up etc when I was a young lad........... then sold my Nikon and all my lenses  :( to buy another guitar. Just been using my iphone and ipod touch for pictures. Not quite the same.

Trees especially silhouettes and landscapes were my thing. Like your tree pictures very much and your doggie ! Just had to put my 15year old cross colly/lab  Brodie to sleep this after a very sudden deterioration this week. Gutted  :'(.

Will have to do some research on a reasonably priced digi SLR camera and get back into this.

And now back to our regular programming  ;)



Could be my favorite Sakamoto collaboration.....the Fennesz treatments work so well with the piano.  More experimental than Sakamoto & Willets excellent Ancient Future but in a very good way and more accessible than their 12k release Ocean Fire.  Also theres an element in Sakamoto's piano that is reminiscent for me of his film music adding a melodic smoothness to the Fennesz glitch.

Got my cd from Amoeba in San Francisco, had a hard time finding it..... flac is available from Boomkat  http://boomkat.com/cds/33897-fennesz-sakamoto-cendre


Sad News about Sakamoto:

- Saul Stokes: LFOUFO 
Been playing quite a bit. High quality (as always) and catchy. Great in the car. I don't really think of it as ambient.
- Philipp Weigl: Prisma 
No vocals in this one, unfortunately. But has been growing on me.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Any other photography people out there ?

Many thanks, Boris !

Particularly like the 'people' section on your site.
Yes, I agree, I think ambient music and photography can have a lot in common.

I just wanted to add that I have put up 3 free ambient tracks for download at my band camp page:
In Memory Echoes
The Future Approaching
De-Evolution

http://darrenrogers.bandcamp.com/

and also I am slowly uploading my previous albums to band camp.
So please check it out and enjoy:)

Hello Pete,
You have beautiful photographs on your blog indeed !
I particularly like the black&white texture-sky (Fade.jpg) and the fire ferns.
I have also been doing quite a lot of photos over the years, of people, landscapes, nature, music... Here's my sample page : http://www.borislelong.com/image/photo
Ambient music and photography can have a lot in common !
Best.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / USB albums
« Last post by chris23 on Yesterday at 07:06:56 PM »
What are your thoughts on releasing albums on USB sticks? I recall that machinefabriek did this earlier this year with an album + video collection and it seemed like a smart way to distribute a ton of data. ...txt also just released a USB of various Nacht Plank recordings: http://www.discogs.com/Nacht-Plank-Sacraments-Council/release/5852492

My collector instinct doesn't feel moved by USB sticks, maybe because I can't stick the darn things in my stereo. But I'm curious to know whether others collect these, buy them, etc.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: Top Oophoi discs
« Last post by Julio Di Benedetto on Yesterday at 03:20:07 PM »
From the discs that I have which I will list I can narrow it down to a favorite track....Lord of the Starfields from Athlit.

Athlit
Dreamfields w/PV
Distance to Zero w/PV
Il Silenzo di Dio
Signals from the great beyond

Both cds that team Oophoi with Paul Vnuk are very special....sometimes you need another to bring the best out of each other
