.Im intrigued how most piece that I have listen to start with  long single note drones out of the left channel and the right comes in a fair bit later. Curious and at first annoying in a way or better put attention demanding.

Julio, I think some of her pieces may have been intended for multi-channel playback or for at least speaker playback.  I prefer headphones, too, for the detail, though I'm probably missing some of the effect of having the sound bounce around in my space.

Another album you might like from an early 70s EM pioneer is David Behrman's On The Other Ocean.  He uses algorithmic software to interact with live musicians (oboe, cello).  Some of it is very beautiful:

Well of Souls = two thumbs up

Forrest: What are your thoughts on the new Robert Rich album you mentioned? I've only been able to find short samples of it online and can't really gauge it well from those alone.

Recent plays:

Aes Dana, featuring Miktek - Far & Off
A compilation of EPs from Ultimae. Masterful hybrid of ambient and various electronic styles.

Lav - Awareness
Nice ambient pads with lots of breathing room and a few special quirks to keep things interesting.

Thanks, Julio.  Radigue is very unique.  Once I got past my initial reaction ("test tones??"), I could hear more subtle textural things happening on almost a subconscious level.  I'm also just getting into her "Jetsun Mila" release on Lovely Music.  Will have to check out transamorem transmortem soon.

Yes Forrest, her music does require some work or patience to get past the "test tones"......Im intrigued how most piece that I have listen to start with  long single note drones out of the left channel and the right comes in a fair bit later. Curious and at first annoying in a way or better put attention demanding. Also struck by how the outside world of sounds work with her music....Im listen on open back headphones.

Tomita - The Planets.
   Definitely an influence on me - especially in the sound/noise sections.
   I used to listen to it under the influence and the more ethereal sections still sound the same to me - very psychedelic and like an aural Bridget Riley Picture.
   I still find the complexity of the both the recording and individual sounds amazing given it was recorded (I think) in 1976.

Agreed on Radigue. I couldn't have said it any better myself. She's actually become a big influence on my music.
