Nachtplank - Echo Ark will be in my top 5 for 2014. Stunning album.

Late evening walk along the deserted beach and coast last night listening to ......



Autumn of Communion 3 and also 2. Very enjoyable experience.

Now checking out Nachtplank - Birth, on bandcamp.

I agree with Drone on.
Echo Ark is really superb.Top 2014.Lee just released a new one called "Birth"
Expo 70- I have several of his.My favorite is Where does your mind go.But yes,he can be noisy as well.Not into that part.I do like the lo-fi recordings.
Anjou-New project from Labradford and Pan American on Kranky.1 track out so far but interesting.
Harold Budd-La Bella Vista-Solo piano,just so, so beautiful.

Julio- that's a stern looking fellow named J.S. Bach.   My parents had him on a pedestal at home when I was growing up - he fell into my hands.  He's kinda sentimental. 

My orangish Metropolis framed poster isn't showing in any of the shots.   

Got that handsonic off of James Jimmie Johnson from his secret lair.

Nachtplank--Echo Ark.  Incredible album on txt label.  Top 10 of 2014 spot guaranteed here.

Rudiger Gleisberg/Mathias Grassow--Ad Lucem.  On the gterma label from Sweden.  Fans of Gleisberg works on the Solitaire albums he appeared on , most notably Fearless on Recycle or Die, will find similar sonorities here, mixed with Grassow typical drones.

Jeff Pearce--With Evening Above.  Good album.  He does what he does best here.

Expo Seventy--Virtually from the Unknown.  On Essence Music.  Gentle, ethereal space rock.  Not as noisy and grungy as previous works, which is why I really like this one.  If you like Hawkwind, Berlin school and Krautrock you must hear this artist!

  Interesting to see all those Youtube vids of people playing with controllers / Live almost as an 'instrument', in it's own way.

I agree, to full appreciate Live a controller of some sort is need and Live does become an instrument.  Its very different to most daw's.

Cheers for the info men. Got the ipod/phone app last night. Very impressed with the concept. Listened to it through the headphones on my evening stroll and it worked superbly blending with the surrounding environmental sounds.

I will get the download first ( both) then probably the DVD also. I was aware of Robert's music previously and had listened to several of his works, also with Ian Boddy, however Somnium has raised his profile with me. Listened to "Nest" last night, utterly superb.

Thanks for your feedback Julio !

I will spend some more time with it, I think having different applications that do things in different ways is a good thing. I find myself going into 'repeat mode' regarding processes that yield useful results, but I'm always keen to try new things to add variety / stop me going into 'auto-pilot'.

I get the impression that having some kind of controller to launch clips is pretty integral to Live (?) . I've just bought a Korg PadKontrol and that works with FL Studio's performance mode in a similiar way (I think).  Interesting to see all those Youtube vids of people playing with controllers / Live almost as an 'instrument', in it's own way.
