I really liked BlackDay also, as it is more akin to the Phobos way of thinking ;D, however I found the text at the top, ie the Home, Search, Profile and Logout etc, tabs very small, and the blue colour of the diamond on the left when there was a new post, could have done with being a bit more intense. I would definately use that one if those couple if things could be altered.

The Vertex seems popular enough, I'll have to get rid of the "Vertex" logo in the corner and create something Hypnos-ish to replace it.

Thanks to all for the input on which themes you're enjoying, and not enjoying.

Definitely will still happen. I need to schedule a couple of vacation days to do nothing but get the new store finally off the ground and launched.

In fact, it will not only offer some downloads (not download versions of all the CDs we sell, but some) but it will sell CDs also, and will replace our existing Hypnos Online Store.

I think I have finally settled on the Vertex theme. :)

The gray was not for me  ;) I am trying out the vertex. Quite nice this  :)
Any word on the download store Mike ?

Hope it will still be happening.

What an excellent review Richard, with which I fully agree.

Really is a cracking album and it's great that Robert is still producing music of this caliber.

This will definitely be a top album for me in 2015.

Autumn Of Communion 5.

Just received this as my first disc went missing in the post !!!! This is a grower, I liked it well enough first couple of listens but now it's burned into my world......I really like it. As expected from the cover, a darker offering but some beautiful moments also.

Blake Gibson/ Robert Davies - Quiraing , has been on constant play also. Really beautiful album that will be up there as a favourite in 2015.

Need to go and check out Pixells II

An update:  I've just posted 2 additional pieces to my "odds and sods" Soundcloud page.  One is an unreleased piece from around the time I was recording Gongland, and the other is a minimalist electronic piece I recorded over the weekend to test out some new sounds.

I was recently invited by French radio program Solenopole to provide a 50-minute mix of my music and influences.  The show's mixes are streamable off the internet.  Past participants have included Rapoon and Laszlo Hortobagyi.  I'll let you know when my mix becomes available.  Some past mixes are located here:

I was honored to be interviewed this month by John Diliberto for his Echoes radio show.  "Letters To The Farthest Star" made it to his Top 25 for February.  My interview segment is scheduled to air on April 6.

Two nice reviews of Letters from John Shanahan of Hypnagogue and Peter Thelen of Expose Magazine came in this past week, too (besides Bert Strolenberg's thoughtful one for Sonic Immersion):

Greetings Hypnotics,

It's been awhile since I've posted here.  I do pop in from time to time to catch up with threads and see what you folks are discussing. This time, I've got a bit of news to share including two new Numina CD releases that are now shipping.

The latest Numina solo album, "Through the Gate to Nowhere", is a Limited Edition, Hand-numbered, Factory-pressed CD (real CD) in coordination with the Relaxed Machinery label. Recorded over the past two years, "Through the Gate to Nowhere" may be the deepest Numina release to date.

Also on Bandcamp is the Symbiotic Spaces V2?.?0 [40?-?Track EXPANDED EDITION] release. A 40-track download -or- a 40-track download + the original 20-track CD option.

A note about "Through the Gate to Nowhere":

"Through the Gate to Nowhere" is the culmination of material recorded over a two year timeframe at my studio in Colorado. The sound design and recording of this album was a repeated process of coming into the soundworld of the music and then leaving it to sit for awhile, sometimes months apart. The result is a collection of music that was built upon a wide range of experiences and introspective moments recorded over the course of an unusually long span of time. Ultimately, "Through the Gate to Nowhere" is a sonic journey influenced by many events and emotion. Near the end of the project I felt the music lent itself to the mysteries of nature. I have long been inspired by the lush green landscape of Europe and England and as I was nearing the final days of recording the album I had the fortune to be presented with photographs from the Wasdale Lake District, an area located in Cumbria England, for use as the artwork. These images were the inspiration for the final touches on the recording, the track titles, and are the perfect visual for the artwork of the CD package.


Out now for a couple weeks is my collaboration with Zero Ohms and the album "Broken Stars Through Brilliant Clouds" on the Spotted Peccary Label.

For any of you who are users of the Access TI series of synthesizers, I produced a patch bank titled "Dreamzone Textures". As some of you know, I have released several loop libraries for the SONY ACID Loop Libraries in the past. I have also been working on professional sound design patches for synthesizers. The Access Virus TI project is my first set that I created. This sound bank can be purchased directly from my website at:

Some recent stuff:

Federico Durand - Musica para Manuel
New release from Hibernate. Basic lo-fi tape manipulations of music boxes, piano, and guitar with some really eerie resonance. Nice background music.

Mick Chillage - Pixels II
Upcoming release on Anodize, with the digital version available now. I fell in love with this the first time I streamed it and have listened to it over and over since then. Slowly evolving soundscapes with lush washes and loops and some fun headphone ear candy. Pure awesomesauce.
