Hi Jana,

I did not realize you and stargazer are the same....reading you recent posts here on the hypnos forum I sensed that stargazer was involved and very knowledgeable about ambient space music.  Now I understand.  I have not come across you since rM. Good that you are here!

I have been listening to part one - under the stars...so beautifully quiet.  Looking forward to part 2 & 3

Imagine the stars above the sky, imagine you could see them all day and night long. The world would be so much nicer and more peaceful.
The Milky Way is main inspiration for my music. Everytime I get a chance, I look at it and let myself fall. This feeling is immense, calm and universal. It makes me feel complete.
My latest album, released today at summer solstice, is dedicated to the Milky Way. Tuned to 429,2 Hz and containing three different parts.

Part I - Under the stars
Part II - Approaching Infinity
Part III - The creation of stars

PS: Part II is the piece that I mentioned in the Lovecraftian music thread by Mike Griffin. I love Lovecrafts cosmic visions/experiences,
and after listening all available audio books, I bought the book collection (6 bands) and read a lot of Lovecraft lately. Part II reflects this a bit.
Also, Part II contains my voice (some choir-like sounds) at some certain points. I ever wanted to do that. But it is very subtle.

OK, I have read the guidelines and will stop self-promoting now. The stars for you.

Forrest: Thanks for the tips.  I really enjoyed Fellirium - Mermaids. Two of the tracks in particular (Ghost in the Water and Dreaming Fish) are outstanding.

My pleasure, Chris.  Thanks to Richard, too, for uncovering these obscure ambient gems.  The packaging for many of the Pantheon releases is exceptional, too.  The "Halos" release sounds interesting.  Have bookmarked it for further investigating...:)

Seren, I'II check out your album, we may be thinking on similiar lines. I take it you must be pretty adept to use an umarked (fret markers) fretless ! 

Yep - I'm an expert me! ! ! :o - err, no, I play around with it until It's tuned with a sound I like to begin with and then go by ear.....

I've been in the process of moving and only wired up the studio in it's new home over the weekend so yet to get stuck into anything.

I've had to buy a new computer (PC was on last legs) and get new music software (Sonar Artist) as my Sonar 5 would not run on windows 10....

...a salutary lesson for everyone - never throw away your old software discs - sometimes they contain things no longer available (in this instance a Lexicon reverb plug in....) I'm thinking of getting it off ebay to get the reverb back.....

Back to the bass - enjoy and let us know how it goes.

This guy is doing some good things with an ebow and fretless:
