Since we both posted... we may have to ask Mike to ban us all.

So, if it's not 'artistic', what else is it - do you think he's made a technical error of judgement ?

Downloaded your video, but I didn't get it, playing around with an Eq doesn't really show what you're trying to get at.

On the subject of noiser and Eqs, I use a high Q parametric Eq to 'soften' noise textures (or just noise), I find the frequencies vary with the sound, but yes 4k - 8K is usually the range (using up to 3 narrow Q cuts). A 'steam' like sound is much more pleasing to these ears than unfiltered noise.

For me it is quite obvious it is an artifact. This is noise produced as an artifact from something within the chain. Or how do you explain the exact same noise is produced thru the whole album which is 15 hours ?

 I am not sure what he used to mix this record.
ButWhen I lower the 4khz  and 6Khz it sounds a lot better and cleaner when all that constant noise is gone.

My only purpose with this video was to show and isolate the frequencies I had problems with, even at 0 db level the noise is very high in the mix... when listening to this noise for hours It is tiring and there is not one minute that goes by listening to this album without me getting bothered by the noise.
I agree that this "steam like" noise can be desireable, but for me they must have some kind of warmth and softness to it, to sound good, this noise sounds just cold and like a artefact to me.

I made a video/audio recording to demonstrate perfectely what I am talking about, my vote it is not artistic.  Even at 0 db level the noise floor is catastrophic  .

Possibly my favorite work of his since The Thin Red Line.
!!!
Hearing this excites me. Thin Red Line is certainly my favourite from Zimmer as well.

+1 Here the same  :)

To be clear, the image I posted was from Nest. I don't own Perpetual yet.

I didn't even think to check the samples on Robert's site. Doing so, I found the hissing sound you're talking about, and it's identical to the sound of Nest. It must be intentional. I'm really curious to know what it is though. It's probably insects of some kind given his recordings are filled with them. :P

Some artists noise as a texture, years ago Eno used to talk about a recording of cicadas that he used liberally on his work.
Sometimes the intention is to fill the frequency range. At the more experimental end, it's used as a primary texture.

Am listening to the samples on his page now, yes it's there but I'm sure he made an artistic choice to include it. Of course he's not going to do a re-release, Robert is highly regarded for his mastering chops. I seem to remember there was a similiar post here sometime ago about Steve Roach being deaf as he was using far too much low frequency sound !

Is this from the nest or perpetual?
I have no complaints about the nest from what I remember.  Even though it has a more lofi character.  It sounds like it is a release from 1995 and not 2012.

However with perpetual this noise sounds deign definitely not artistic.  It is quite obvious it is an artifact.
I know Robert rich use toraverb,  if it is used  on perpetual it could be it I get the same noise with it which was hard to get rid of until I found the source. 
I can give examples this week of the noise in the audio.
I hope he will do a re-release
