Good points.
A year after this thread was posted, Spotify went public yesterday and the founder is a multi billionaire on paper.  Spotify lost $1.5 billion last year and the current valuation is absurd.  I do not like the company at all.  They don't provide an adequate payout to artists especially the artists that aren't huge.  They reduce physical and digital sales. 

The only thing I use Spotify for is to preview music that doesn't have an adequate preview elsewhere.  At least the artist gets paid a penny for the preview.  I will never stream instead of buying mostly because remastering a stream is an exercise in futility.  Plus I want obscure artists to get paid a lot more than Spotify pays.

Oh no, not a Kickstarter... I'm getting some bad vibes from that.... ;D

Stretch goals: for each $1000 donated by backers another 10 seconds will be added to the album

Starter edition: A signed copy of the CD $50
Advanced edition: Includes a signed copy of the CD and hand crafted Steve Roach & Robert Rich action figures $150
Deluxe edition: A lifetime's supply of ambient toilet paper with images from various Steve Roach & Robert Rich album covers (includes all content from the Advanced edition) $500

And for our most loyal fans:
Grand royale pack: A drone loop created by you will be incorporated in the the upcoming album $5.000
Grand royale pack plus: A live studio session with Steve or Robert for $25.000

I think it's about time to open a new thread but then again, here we go:

Thanks to the overwhelmingly positive response synchronize or die received, I could raise the funds for the next album in the pipeline, no sleep 'til wilmersdorf. Thank you very much to all of you who have supported me through their generosity and enabled me to pick up where I had left in 2012.

wilmersdorf will be the 11th album in ['ramp]'s history, and as you may have guessed already (telling from the title), this time it's going even further back (and faster) than with SOD:

In 1978/79, I spent some time in Berlin with my parents, living in the borough of Wilmersdorf, not too far away from all those historical sites as Thomas Kessler's Beat Studio, Michael Hoenig's place, Edgar Froese's home, Peter Baumann's Paragon Studio, or David Bowie's and Iggy Pop's flat in Schöneberg. To me as a six-year old boy, it was an amazing experience, witnessing the city divided by The Wall (not Roger's), passing through abandoned ghost stations in East-Berlin when taking a ride on the metro -- in fact, I still draw from these memories when spending time in Berlin, and I confess I quite miss the oppressive and bleak atmosphere this place used to have:

The album will be released officially on 2nd May 2018 in order to celebrate the 35th anniversary of my very first musical lesson. It will be limited to 222 hand-numbered copies (real CD, btw, no CDR), and it will come with a 12-page booklet. I am taking pre-orders now (if you don't need to have the FLAC download) through stephen at parsick dot com -- be quick if you want to make sure you're first in line.

 Thanks for your time,

Happy for you new sonic is an amazing adventure.  I had a lot of modules come through my system while I had it. I don't recall any module that was not good, some could be one trick ponies when they seemed like they could do more, some took up to much real estate for their function but all did what they were designed for and the sound and build quality was always excellent.

I'm bumping this to make it a little easier for me to find. I've finally started a small Eurorack system and I'll peruse everybody's suggestions and their modules. I plan to keep it small (and black) for as long as I can!

Sadly, epic Ambient collaborations aren't economically feasible by chance.  Send email to Steve and Robert and encourage them to create a Kickstarter with a $5000 minimum.   
Not sure what criteria BC uses, but I've seen many of their so called "Massive Survey of Ambient" pieces and listen to all of them.  Less than 10% of them are something that appeals to a seasoned listener of Ambient.  Perhaps someone here that isn't an Ambient artist should volunteer to promote exceptionally good Ambient?
