Next time, you might want to use something better than the Casio keyboard you bought at Radio Shack for $99...

(Now THAT was a joke)  ;D

Judd, I agree about the Yearning album.  Lisa Moscow was on a track on Propagation, then they did the full album.  I saw them live together in 1994 at a small church in San Francisco.  Fantastic concert!!! 

I did like Morphology because it had live versions of some early material, from Numena for example.

My comment about harshness refers to the style, not any errors in the production.  To clarify, the album can get quite dark in places and the sounds are more harsh than the floating more ethereal passages.  I was not giving this a negative review based on this observation.

‘Opaline’ and ‘IRIS’ new Igneous Flame dual album release

'IRIS' and 'Opaline' arose out of the same pool of material. On completion of the project, I realised that there was a distinction between the tracks that featured sections of percussion and 'formal' instrumentation, interspersed with more abstract tonal textures and those that were more continuous and beat-less. Hence the two separate albums.'

Hey thanks for listening to Quiraing, and thanks for the constructive criticism. I probably don't need to mention this on a forum of mainly musicians, but make sure that whatever your listening device is, make sure the EQ is flat.  It sounds fine in my studio, on my home theatre and even on my iPod, but I did notice some high end harshness in my car, where I usually have the lows and highs bumped up a bit, once I set it to flat, it sounded fine to me.  *shrugs*

Also.... proper mastering just wasn't in the budget this time  ;D

- Christopher Hipgrave:: No greater hero than the least plant that grows

Lovely thing on the Home Normal bandcamp site. Precious, minimal, glitchy, granular.

Dave,

You should ask your son to have a go as well - lots of sonic manglin' opportunities with the NI stuff !

Blake Gibson/Robert Davies--"Quiraing".  Very nice album of organic landscape ambient a la Grassow and Stearns.  If you liked the Amplexus label back in the 90s you will dig this.  Also David Parsons work is similar in spots.  Airy, stratospheric sounds morph into darker passages of drones that are occasionally a bit harsh. 
Yep, I received a copy from Dennis at Databloem recently and thought it had potential, but also found it overly harsh in the high end throughout much of it. Could have used some proper mastering on this one.
