Listening: Podcasts, Mixes, and Music Sample Clips / Bandcamp Streaming ?
« Last post by petekelly on October 29, 2014, 02:34:34 AM »
I don't know if this is the most appropriate place to post this, but here goes;

As I understand it, people can use Bandcamp to stream anything that's up there as long as they have an internet connection ? (I see there's a bandcamp App as well, which presumably does the same)
So, if this is the case, then people don't have to buy anything there, just use it as a 'radio' in effect and the artists get nothing from this - which is worse than Spotify's model (?)

Is this why artists are just making montages or selected tracks available on their pages ?

Always interested to hear new DS stuff. I think he's an artist who's work is very much affected by the people he's working with. I didn't like that 'Blemish' era stuff at all.
One thing about DS, he varies his approach to his work, which I think is a laudable thing - he's not trying to re-make new versions of his earlier classics.

  Haven't heard it though but with his extreme experiments in sound these days I'm not getting my hopes up. 


What are your (sorry to quote you for this word) "extreme" hopes and expectations for this artist - once more the usual and well known deep Ambient from Roach?

As Julio said, I find patches to be excellent learning tools.

They're also useful to use as a base rather than starting from scratch. I often load one up and modify it to suit my needs.

Steve Roach/Jorge Reyes--Ancestor Circle.  Did this get delayed??  Not on Steve's or Projekt sites.  Highly anticipated for sure.

I believe that is coming out any day now, maybe next week I think.

Yeah I didn't include my acoustic stuff because I need to organize it more. I'll add some photos of that stuff later. In the mean while here is a photo I took of my gongs that I got in Indonesia:

Rapoon--Fall of Drums.  Superb return to form of his 90s style gems like Fallen Gods, Vernal Crossing, Kirghiz Light,  Tin of Drum, etc.  The last track is an epic 33 minutes of blissed out ethno ambience.  Been waiting a long time for this, and it definitely didn't disappoint.

Stunning studio Loren, but you forgot to mention the sticks and the goat hoof rattle.....what other acoustic elements do you have?

Oophoi - Dreams (on repeat)
Caul - White Darkness
Steve Roach - Bloodmoon Rising
Lustmord - dark places of the earth
Synaesthesia - (parts of desideratum)

I'm just thinking of a scenario where someone new to ambient composition decides to start creating their own work and looks around for some 'ambient sounds' and starts off with someone else's ideas of such a thing.

I remember when Acid loops were the big thing a few years ago, including several for ambient music-making.  Made me cringe a bit to think of newbies loading a Robin Storey acid loop and thinking that this was all there was to making ambient music.
