Experiments in Silence - Suspended Form
Treated piano sounds with a nice use of space. The original 30-min piece is by Experiments in Silence; the second remixed piece is by Ishq.

Ishq - Ecalyculata
More experimental soundscapes from Ishq. I'm tiring of these. I'm always curious to see what he's up to, but I miss some of the more structured and serene work prior to 2015 or so. This has some neat sounds, but the tracks don't seem thoughtfully curated or assembled.

The Experiments In Silence CD I have from ...txt is really beautiful stuff , will dig it out this weekend and give your link a listen also.

Have to agree with you Chris on the more experimental stuff from Ishq. Checked out the recent Archetypal of Light and fhorm on Spotify and really not sure about them at all. However I have been playing a lot of the more recent chilled ambient stuff , again on Spotify - Evergreen Ocean, Pureland, Dimensions of Air and I think the other two I liked were Onirojenik World and Nuiemiu Rift . Hard to keep up with this lads music but I do enjoy dipping in frequently on Spotify.

Here is a collection of demos, some of which seem outdated, but some of them still work:

And here is a super-neat blog with lots of interesting examples, including a web-based synth:

Here is something I've been working on personally. It is a series of digital tape loops, each of which can be played back at different speeds. There are also volume adjustments and reverb that can be mixed into each track. Each loop can be reversed in Safari, but not in other browsers; I'm working on a fix for that now.

Here is something else that is neat. It is a simple demo on creating generative music in an Eno-like style, combining visuals and audio. I don't think there is a live version on that site, but I've seen one somewhere else.

Has anyone here experimented with Web Audio API--a set of methods for playing and manipulating audio in modern web browsers?

I've been playing around with this for the last few weeks and have been having a lot of fun. I was shocked at the wide range of things that can be done these days in a browser alone:

- create oscillators using a variety of wave forms
- manipulate in real time, manually or algorithmically, the frequencies of those waveforms and their timing
- load audio clips/samples and process those in a variety of ways
- add/subtract gain nodes, panning nodes, and a variety of filters
- use impulse files for convolving signals (reverb)
- chain nodes together to customize signals and how they are processed

Most of this is done by using javaScript to control the work flow.

Anyhow, just checking to see if there are others around here who have poked around with this stuff.

Logic Moon - Oblivion
Nice mix of field recordings and electronics, all with loose, drifting structures. The Archives label is really hitting it out of the park this year: 6-panel digipaks with matte finish, beautiful art, and a cohesive set of releases that bring some beautiful ambience out of some lesser-known artists. Strongly recommended.
Carpe Sonus has put up a page for pre-orders of both cd and digital download of Airwaves (aka the late Oskar Menzel) "Biomechanical";
the actual release will be in September:

A real mixture of female voices:
 Annie Lennox, Lisa Hannigan, Laura Viers, Patti Smith, Elle King, Evanescence, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Agnetha Faltskog and others...

 ...with Mozarts requiem and White Noise - An Electric Storm...thrown in the midst for good measure

just played whatever the current track made me think of next - uncertain how the White Noise track The Visitations came into mind.....

Black Dingo Records - Above The Clouds

Over 2 hours of top-notch dark-ambient dronescapes. I contributed a track to it myself called New Frontier, but the whole thing is outstanding. My favorite track is the closer, which was created by espaces sonores.
