Chris, I finally found the right time to tune into your new album and it is great.

LOVE the track "Submerged". Sublime and tranquil.

The CD looks wonderful. Your album description as ever sophisticated.

Piano Magic - A Trick Of The Sea, Bliss Out v.13

A great ambient album made by a collective of musicians more known for playing experimental rock music. It's part of Darla Records' Bliss Out series from the late 90's.

Some basics from the Klangwirkstoff website:

"The cosmic octave is based upon a principle in physics, which is the process of octavation. The formula to calculate any cyclic occurrences in octave-analogue tones and rhythms is quite simple:

(1:a) x 2 n = f

a = periodic duration in seconds
n = octave amount
f = frequency

Based on the natural law, the equivalence of octaves, which means tones within a distance of the octave have an identical, partial row of tones, have the same overtones with the help of the 'octavation process'.
It is possible to calculate an octave-analogue sound to every re-occurring vibration.

Explanation of the formula using an example:
the reciprocal value 1:a is formed (in 1: 31556925.54 seconds) of any cyclic occurrence 'a' (example : earth year = 365.25636042 days = 31556925.54 seconds).
This results in the frequency Hz, which is the vibration per second. In the example of the earth year (rotation of the earth around the sun) a tone with 0.00000003168 Hz.

A human being is able to hear 20 Hz (20 vibrations per second) up to 16000 Hz. 20 Hz represents the deepest bass tone, which is just about audible. 16000 Hz is a very high pitch.
And there is no contingent tone possible for the perception of the human ear which is below 20 Hz and this is the domain of rhythm, calculated in beat per minute (bpm).
In order to achieve an octave-analogue tone of the path of the earth around the sun, the ultra-deep frequency of the earth year (0.00000003168 Hz) has to be doubled, multiplied by two, until it becomes audible as sound.

This happens in the very first instance in the 30th octave. And the best audible tone of the earth year is in the 32nd octave. This calculated tone is a c sharp with 136.10 Hz, which is slightly lower than the c sharp based on the concert pitch with 440 Hz.
The appropriated concert pitch of the earth year is A and would have a frequency of 432.10 Hz. In order to play the octave analogue tone of the rotating earth around the sun one has to perform a basic tuning of the instruments from
A = 440 Hz to A = 432.10 Hz and then checking the sound of C sharp. This calculated frequency is identical to the basic tone of classical Indian music and the Tibetan Om.

This tone is related to the spiritual anatomy of the heart centre. Many people around the world in the process of meditation are tuned in unison with this tone which is the year tone of the earth, the earth circling around the sun.

As mentioned above the continuous perception of vibrations (tones) in their single occurrences (rhythms) can not be manifested below 20 Hz.
The basic frequency of the year doubled 25 times would produce a speed of rhythm of 63.8 bpm (beats per minute). In the 26th octave this would be 127.6 bpm.

The perceptive ability to see as well as to hear is based on vibrations, but these oscillations are faster than acoustic signals which are vibrating, and if one were to continue to multiply up to the 74th octave,
it is possible to perceive an octave-analogue color. The octave analogue color to the earth year is blue-green with 500.837 nanometer wavelength."

The frequency of the earth's orbit thus reflects the human heartbeat and the color of the earth from space. Life adapts.  :)

Andrew Lahiff - Emerging Signals
I'm not sure why this guy doesn't get more accolades. I adore his work. I've been coming back to this album again and again.

I'm also listening to "Emerging Signals" now. It's really beautiful. I already listened to Steve's "A Soul Ascends" earlier. It's a lazy Sunday, so I'm going to listen to everything listed on this page.   :)

Thanks for the comments, Castleview, as well as others who posted earlier.

Often in the past we've all discussed the fact that this forum (and others like it) are much less busy, as so many people have shifted their attention to newer forms of social media. Rather than seeing that as a negative as I once did, I have come to see it as a positive.

This forum is more focused, and consequently less overwhelming than Twitter and Facebook in particular, and I find myself drawn back to it for that reason!
I've enjoyed sampling these sounds, and ended up purchasing the whole discography on Bandcamp. Nice work!

Thanks, all. If anyone buys this on the Hypnos store, shoot me a PM and I'll send you a Bandcamp download code too.
