Interesting, seems to be a trend. Well done. While I'm not an app user myself, I will take this moment to say that dreamSTATE was quite important for me in my early days of exploring ambient music. Thanks for that.

Downloaded the app onto my ipad mini yesterday. This is very good indeed. Beautiful music and enjoy the graphics also. Zapped it onto my iphone and touch also for mobile Ephemeralising.

Interesting concept this. I have the Robert Rich Somnium app but this one takes it to a whole new level. Great stuff , congratulations Scott.

After a gaming drought, I'm getting back into space sims with Elite:Dangerous. Finally bought a new joystick so hopefully, I won't bounce off the landing pads trying to control a ship with a mouse and keyboard.

I keep meaning to get back into Guild Wars 2, especially since the first official expansion, Heart of Thorns, was announced this weekend. The new lands of Maguuma look interesting. Not much else interesting to me, although I may pick up Wasteland 2 and get my Fallout 2-style post-nuclear RPG on.

Phaedra, Rubycon, Epsilon, and Aqua were such ground-breaking albums for me in the early '70's. I was fortunate enough to see TD live twice and was spellbound by the incredible sonic landscapes they created. And what a recorded legacy they left behind. Definitely listening to Phaedra and Rubicon tonight and raising a silent toast to Edgar and a prayer to his family. RIP.

Well since Projekt took over a month of pre order status, I got a refund and download ed from iTunes.

Doh. I think the shipment from Italy just arrived this weekend; I got a 'package sent' email from Projekt today for the two recent Alio Die releases.

Jacob Newman and Devin Underwood - The Vivid Unmapped
A 2011 release from DataObscura. I recall Joe R. and others singing the praises of this album a while back. I picked up the digital version on Bandcamp last week and have been enjoying it immensely. It has a little bit of everything: a classic ambient feel with warm, drifting synth notes and a bit of an experimental angle, with found founds, interesting sonic manipulations, etc. The atmosphere is great--not too dark, not too fluffy, and somewhat mysterious.

Thanks.  Yeah, being butt-hurt about it isn't getting me anywhere.  I'm going to bring it up and try to think of the right thing to say.  I don't like to let things linger without clearing the air if I can.

Lots of Bernd Kistenmacher, especially his My Little Universe box and his very good new album Paradise.

Alio Die/L. Montana--Holographic Codex.  I had the opposite reaction, thought the first track didn't really fit as their styles are so different.  Montana's beats sound too much like his collabs with Namlook.  The rest of the album is more Alio and is pretty good, typical Alio drones. 

Alio Die/Parallel Worlds--Elusive Metaphor, Aglaia--Intangible Opacity.  Gotta love these esoteric album titles!!  Well since Projekt took over a month of pre order status, I got a refund and download ed from iTunes.  Elusive is quite good, nice analog synths to add some interesting texture.  The Aglaia is typical highly atmospheric organic droneage.  I always look forward more to his albums than anything else on Hic Sunt Leones.

I really want to like this new Roach/Metcalf album but I just can't get past Metcalf's intrusive drumming.  Never really cared for their collabs or Metcalf solo albums.
