Ha , glad my claim has borne fruit  ;)

2350Broadway, Shades of Orion, From Within. All wonderful, definitive FAX ambient collections. Silence V also, masterpiece. Tetsu Inoue - Inland..............could go on but better stop there  ;)

Currently wearing out my Tensegrity CD from ...txt. I am not really one for compilations, this however is one of the most beautiful collections of music I have ever heard. Gorgeous, relaxing ambient works that for me sum up the wonderful music of  ...txt.

Just had an email from Lee .....on sale for 8 along with others on http://www.txtrecordings.co.uk/

nice to see Max joining Hypnos..   cool.

I recently picked up Corbacho's "The Ocean Inside" album.  Really nice all around, very deep ambient textures.

Speaking of following leads: I finally downloaded, via iTunes, a copy of Namlook & Inoue's 62 Eulengasse, given that thirdsystem claimed it was one of his desert island favorites. I can see why. This would have certainly been a favorite of mine if I had heard it 20 years ago. It stands the test of time well.

Also grabbed 2350 Broadway 2 while on that binge. The Invisible Landscape is frigging amazing.

62 Eulengasse is probably my favorite Namlook/Inoue release.  You should check out 2350 Broadway 3 and 2350 Broadway 4, too.  Their 3 Shades of Orion collabs should also keep you busy.

I followed drone on's lead and downloaded a copy of Alpha Wave Movement's Earthen. Great stuff! The Structures from Silence comparison is an apt one.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Relaxed Machinery Ning Community is moving to Ello

I need to go give Ello another look.

I just read an article, not about Ning in particular, but where one of Ning's founders admitted that it had basically failed and was going to disappear.

Good luck with the new Ello ambient community!

Thanks for your comments, Pete, Phobos and Forrest,

"Overexposed music".....perhaps its an FX plugin, different from a saturator and a distortion unit, maybe more like tape saturation, no that could be too subtle.  In the right hands overexposure in photography is a very creative method of expression....perhaps there are pixels in music!

It has been more than 2 years since my last releases....Original Light was finished rather quickly or so I thought, sometimes a music project needs to sit for a while to give it some space or space for me from it...... It was a sequence of sketches that suggest something but needed time to show the path ahead. A project can be realized in a short period, more often it takes time for me to come to terms with what has been done and consider if it is ready for release.

Everything and Nothing / Relaxed Machinery Ning Community is moving to Ello
« Last post by jkn on May 14, 2015, 01:56:28 PM »
I haven't mentioned this here yet - but I'm shutting down the Ning community.  I've run communities there for 8 years - 5 as Relaxed Machinery.  Ning is falling apart - especially the last year.

I've found a new "home" on Ello - as the Ello Ambient Music Community - https://ello.co/elloambient

rM is moving there. 

Now - I love it here on Hypnos - this is just another outlet for you and ambient related talk and posts. 

Ello is not everyone's favorite platform although it's getting tremendously better and better - I've been there 9 months and the improvements are staggering - and the level of interaction with the developers, owners, and users - is wonderful.  (Mike - you should check out the writer community - some really good people).

I just did a MASSIVE interview with Don Tyler (mastering engineer, records as Phase47 and in Ascendant and other ambient collabs).  https://ello.co/elloambient/post/hKA5BGpO-caivjmcwxQFJQ

I'm interviewing Rusty and Soma FM next.

Join in if you like.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: iOS - useful for an ambient musician ?

I've been here since the beginning of the forum - at least pretty darn close. 

Issues have always been handled carefully - long before I started helping out as a moderator - and ever since.  Almost every warning is behind the scenes unless the person has just shown themselves to completely disregard every attempt.

Thankfully ambient music fans aren't necessarily the most riled up unruly group...  I haven't had too many problems over on Relaxed Machinery over the last 5 years (and 2 years more before that as  AtmoWorks).  I've banned I think about 3 maybe 4 people total for being total idiots.

Hi, Julio.  Good to hear you're still musically active.  Haven't had the chance to check your new release yet, but will do so soon.
