Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: pieces like: Steve Roach - The Eternal Expanse
« Last post by Seren on February 02, 2016, 01:57:07 AM »
As well as the well known albums and pieces Steve has a number of little hidden gems, not generally so well known.
Sitting at work at present so unable to list ones I like but will dig the info out when at home.
(aha - one is 'Hovering' on Dreaming...now, then....)

I also like Tuu - The Frozen Lands. Perhaps not as layered, but very spacey and atmospheric.

I have not been getting everything Steve does for a number of years - would I be right in thinking that the deep space sound of 'The Magnificent Void' is less prominent in his releses?

I know that at least Loren has a surround sound system, so this seems an appropriate place to post this. Mode Recordings has released a series of DVD-A and DVD discs containing all of Subotnick's pieces recorded in quad - which began with Touch. Scroll down to the bottom of the link for links to each release. They also have visual components and interviews.

I have all three volumes and they're treasures. Volume 2, with Sidewinder and Until Spring, is a personal favourite but each is exquisite - modular synthesis with detailed spacial control as part of the composition. Highly recommended - and if you search a bit, also found through Amazon.

Morton Subotnick interview

I posted this elsewhere in the forum but feel its better suited here

I have that Desert Colection CD. It is superb. will play that tonight and remind myself of the track in the OP. Hope there will be a volume 2 of this.

I have been checking out Max Carbacho and Amhir Baghira's work in recent months and enjoyed it all. Will have to become more immersed and familiar with the music of both.

Agree about Cyclone drone on. I like that album a lot. Something a bit different with challenging (but interesting  :) ) vocals. That "Bent Cold Sidewalk" is actually quite catchy  ;). Great track name also - Rising Runner Missed By Endless Sender. The album cover is one of the things that made me notice TD back in '78 .A lad walking about the school carrying his Cyclone LP , remember when everyone used to do that. I think I had heard snippets of Phaedra and Rubycon before that, so these albums hooked me in for life.

Moss Garden CDs are wonderful, some of my favourite ambient music. I see there is an ep listed on discogs which is apparently a free download from the "Kaiko" bandcamp. Haven't heard that so will check it out.

Current play - Steve Roach - Live in Tuscon , excellent.

Motorhead were one of my favourite bands from my younger years. even though he led that lifestyle, you kind of thought he would just go on forever. Lemmy wouldn't want to rest in peace, he would rather have it fast and loud! A very great loss to the rock world.

This album is fantastic indeed.
I was expecting as much, since Yen Pox involves Michael J.V. Hensley who has my utmost respect for his phenomenal albums as Blood Box.
It is a great album, hopefully there will be a new Blood Box album this year.

I'd recommend the Numina track Empire of Nothing from his Hypnos CD The Deception of Reality.

I agree about Max..he is really good..his stuff is not as multi layered compared to roach that is the main differnece so it is little bit more "simple" and not as

Early Vir Unis is very high level the albums "the drift inside" and "Aeonian Glow"


Amir Baghiri is always very high level when it comes to pure production
it is with par with steve roach for sure. his 3CD album "rooms" is probably the best one.
