Love that last picture.....very warm and the painting I like a lot....the whole atmosphere mellows out the somewhat stern looking bronze dude.....pray tell who is he?  Beethoven perhaps.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Ableton Live ?

Hi Pete,

Ive been away from the studio the past few weeks on vacation and have not got back into the learning curve again...shortly though, however I do feel that I will work with Live and Logic together via rewire....this is cool.  I will say having worked with audio in Logic forever its strange in Live because it wants to take over and turn your music into neat packages of perfect timed audio which could be useful but I work very loosely when writing music and live's constraints Im not sure about.  If I was just recording audio from external synths as I do in logic, Live would not be a good option for me, logic is better at audio or I should say I like the way Logic handles audio better. 

The really mysterious part of Live is the Session window....I quiet like not see the audio or midi scrolling by.  It becomes sort of a palette of sounds to be triggered and this I feel will be the exciting part of working in live. 
 
While on vacation I had my iPad with me and from time to time created a Scape in Eno's App and it occurred to me that the way Scape triggers sounds could be a good way to work in Live Sesson via a Push or Launch Pad with you the musician as the random element.  Nothing new Im sure but from an ambient perspective it makes sense and the level of surprise....those sonic accidents that are so sweet.  I think what I described would be a great way to perform "live" with Live.

Also the soft synths and sampler synths in Live 9 suite are quite extraordinary which I realize you wont have in Live intro, well maybe some. 

Load it up Pete....try it on for size.  It could be another way to work or an addition to your work flow in place.

Heres a little video of Christopher Willets talking about Push....something that makes me excited about Live.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEkHpMla8EI

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: Steve Roach, 'The Delicate Forever'

I have heard the album now it is very good I think, roach is manage to come back to older standards around 2005-2007 era, however there is still too much bass frequencies rumble for my taste, maybe it is a cheap way to flirty with the more mainstream dark ambient listeners . I guess it depends on how deep your bass on your speakers go mine  go about 35hz so kind of deep. This bass drone rumble is just an irritating factor and especially for my neighbours since the bass is penetrating the walls much more then the other frequencies  For me the bass is mixed to loud, and there is really no interesting audio information in that spectrum imo the sonic depth is in the upper mid and high range.

Anyway good album..it just feels too short though.. but I guess that is a good thing..you got the feeling you wanted more after the last song..

I can also recommend the DVD for Somnium, as well. I've downloaded the app, which is nice for listening on the road or going to sleep by. There was some controversy about this app when it was released, as it was shortened, but I think it's a great introduction to the piece for a very low price and makes a full purchase a no-brainer.

In case anyone else is reading, I'm currently listening to the stream here at http://somafm.com/dronezone/ The album sounds really great and I'm glad I ordered it. Some nice, weightless, drifty stuff.

I have all versions,each is outstanding and for a different mood.
The 7 hour version is the one to get.You can find the full download in lossless FLAC here-

http://www.musiczeit.com/album.php?album=164&Robert+Rich+Somnium

This site also has many of Robert's other titles,including some wonderful live concerts.
I have the DVD which does play in any player and some high end CD players.It came out way before the download.
The Itunes version is OK but very edited,proper for quick naps.
The Itunes App is most likely the best version as it can continue forever,a very cool idea.It does not have anywhere near the sound variations of the DVD but has I think 5 loops that can morph from slow to slowest.
Of course,the audio quality is also quite low on anything Itunes.For me,it has to be lossless.
This music is designed to be played at very low levels so do not crank it.It should be barely audible as you drift to sleep.

Somnium is the reason I bought a DVD player. Really cool release.

Currently listening to Steve Roach's The Delicate Forever and The Delicate Beyond. This is great stuff. I had no idea there was more material inspired by the revisiting of the Structures for Silences seasons. What a pleasant surprise.

Well I'm not surprised...

Tomas has the most harsh comments here, I don't understand why..

My suggestion is to buy somewhere else, maybe other labels that ship to Russia?

Great!  I'm glad Cinchel clicked with you.  He's a good egg as well as good musician.
