Jonn Serrie - The Sentinel

Had this disc for 3 weeks and it has been on constantly. Absolutely stunning space ambient. Beautiful, drifting, always interesting. This will be my release of 2017 I just cannot see it being bettered. One of my alll time favourite ambient releases, it is actually a masterpiece.

Managed to try it for a bit this evening and it's definitely got a cleaner sound to it than my Nanoverb. Doesn't create super long decays but I've got other ones I can use for that. I like it so far.

Nice write-up. How did you learn so much about the process/instrumentation for the album?

Email correspondence with the artist.

Hi all,

it's shameless self-promotion season again, apologies for that ;).

I've uploaded the CDR Version of my 2010 limited-edition album permafrost as a digital download album on Bandcamp:

https://stephenparsick.bandcamp.com/album/permafrost

It was recorded between February and March 2010 during an exceptionally cold winter; many field recordings used on this album have to do with ice in some way or other. For example, I close-miked a frozen pond to record the crackle of ice, tree trunks and rocks tossed onto the surface of a frozen lake (which the local police found a bit, well... interesting), and of ice floes grinding against each other on a frozen canal. As a contrast, I also recorded the sound of fire which was used very prominently in Part Four of the album. These recordings were processed in the studio and combined with textural sound from various analogue and digital synthesisers.

There is a 3 1/2-hour version of this album as well which I might upload eventually but for the time being, I am happy to treat you to the album-length rendition of permafrost.

Thanks for listening and, of course, for your support.

Stephen

I got it in the mail earlier this week but I haven't gotten a chance to play with it yet. I'll let you guys know what I think of it once I use it a little bit.

Thanks. Really nice to get your take. I've noticed more ambient musicians use Lexicon, Eventide, and other brands and I was a bit curious what the consensus was on TC. I know Loren Nerell and Oophoi have used TC reverbs before but outside of that, I haven't seen too many ambient musicians talk about them.

I believe Robert Rich has had a M3000 for awhile now. I have the Reverb 4000 which I've now had for over a decade, it was my big splurge back then and am glad I got it. It's very different then a Lexicon or Eventide. I also have a Lexicon 300m, which I am starting to get more into, I think they complement each other a lot, the TC is more clear and good for solo instruments, the Lexicon is thicker and can have extremely long verbs, I think it maxes out at 65 seconds!  I also have a Fireworx but I've never used it as a reverb.

Anyway I hope you enjoy your M300, let us know what you think of it.

Robert Rich + Alio Die - Fissures

Probably considered a classic by now, but I only just heard it for the first time today. Great album. Distinctly different from the solo albums I have from either artist.


Great Album indeed 8)

Yeah, certainly one of my all-time fave albums!!!

Richard

Thanks for the reminder you two... I lent this album to friends some years ago and it never returned... but I know where they live.  ;D   I agree that this is an outstanding work.

Not to be ugly but why don't you post anything that's not promotional? We'd love to know what ambient music you're listening to lately and your thoughts on gear.
