Other Ambient (and related) Music / Thoughts on Mychael Danna?
« Last post by Castleview on Today at 06:36:01 PM »
I'm a huge fan of Sirens and Skys, his two solo albums on Hearts Of Space released back in the early 90's, and I wish he would have kept making music like that instead of going on to make soundtracks for obscure Canadian films. His releases with Tim Clement as Danna & Clement were great too. I have Summerland on CD and it's another personal favorite of mine. Sadly, much of their work is out of print at this point.

He was so good at blurring the line between cinematic music and ambient music, without getting too far into cheesy new age territory. I just wish he would have made more non-soundtrack music.

Hi Jana, I'm fine thanks. Rather behind my own schedule regarding the projects I'm working on, though.

It seems that people have moved on to a degree (Mike included). Unfortunately, a number of people have passed on as well.

I remember my first 'Hi it's me and here's my new surround sound ambient album' post many years ago and how it was pretty much well ignored, until I stuck around and started contributing.

Hi Pete, hope you are well and happy.

I watch Hypnos forum since 2014 and find it more or less active. Also it has a pool of active members and this pool of people makes the forum.
Since Hypnos label seems inactive, the themes are "limited" to other ambient related themes.

We have summer and it is quite hot (at least here in Germany). This might be also a reason.

Greetings
Jana

Over the years, this forum has had its periods of inactivity.  I know Mike has been busy because his first book was published this year and he has been promoting that and probably has less time to spend on the label.  I haven't been here much lately, partially because I've been busy working on another album and partially because I've been trying to be less tied to my computer this summer.  Facebook can also be a time sink, but I've found it very useful for finding out recent developments in the ambient music scene and other related things.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: The Modular Synthesizer Thread
« Last post by Julio Di Benedetto on Yesterday at 04:34:24 AM »
Heres a new module recently added to my system....The Modcan Touch Sequencer



This is the eurorack version of the Modcan Series B Touch Sequencer from their large format Modular system pictured below.
Both modules behave the same way.  The eurorack version has to be the smallest 4 track sequencer I have come across.  It is so straight forward and simple to use and yet deep and complex results come out from it.



These are the video manual for both units for those curious

I haven't landed anywhere else that has held me, but you can hear the wind blow through here sometimes. Very ambient...

Chris.....thats a great post you made with lots to think about.

I was trying to access Richard Gurtlers facebook page but was denied (have to sign up) to see what a serious ambient music aficionado presence looks like, ultimately that is Richards place but what we are talking about is what it means to be part of an interactive community and its possible future.

If for example my modular musings thread had not had a fair amount of traffic passing through...would I have continued, performing to and empty venue so to speak, perhaps not, but it was the opposite....2783 views and counting, in a six month period.

Perhaps there is a natural ebb and flow...just seems like the tides been going out for a long time.

I still enjoy the tech talk and the album discussions. I haven't landed anywhere else that has held me, but you can hear the wind blow through here sometimes. Very ambient...
