Hi all,

after five years of silence, I am delighted to present ['ramp]'s tenth release to you: synchronize or die. In order to commemorate the 20th anniversary of ramp's first-ever live concert in 1997 and celebrate twenty years of unsolicited noise, the album will be released officially on 29th august 2017:

Just listened to it again the other day on occasion of discussing Michael Hoenig's music in that other forum; excellent album!

Hello, everyone here!

I've just decided to join the Hypnos Forum after reading an older discussion here (about the not-so-well received lecture of Mark Prendergast on "The History of Ambient Music" back in 2013) which I found interesting and amusing...

While probably some of the members here know me already from other places, I'd like to briefly introduce myself to the rest of You (just in case anyone is curious  ;) ):


My full name is Michael Brückner, I'm originally from Heidelberg, Germany, was born in late 1969 and dabble in electronic music (ambient and otherwise) since around 1992 (back then triggered by the experience of mantra and kirtan singing in a Yoga group).

Like many later electronic musicians, I had been an avid listener and record collector long before I started to create my own stuff; my musical tastes however were (and still are) very broad and by far not limited to ambient music (or similar). On the other hand, quiet, introspective or also sound-centered music, electronic or otherwise, were part of my interest from an early age on.

The list of ambient artists and from neighbouring genres who I love would be a long, but probably obvious one and maybe much the same than anyone's here, so I'd just like to say that I'm especially a long-time admirer of Klaus Schulze, and more recently (due to some twists of fate I discovered his music only a few years ago) of Robert Rich. And because he often gets overlooked in this context, I'd like to give special mention to Peter-Michael Hamel...  ;)

As for my own humble contributions, during the past 20+ years I have released a number of albums, most of them self-released, more recently also on different small labels.

My own music is rather varied when it comes to electronic sub-genres (reflecting my personal ecclectic taste), however in the past 10 years, I concentrated more on (often drone based) ambient and "Neo Berlin School".

I also perform live whenever I get a chance to (which, unfortunately, has only rarely been the case so far...  :o )


Obviously, I don't earn a living with music - but as a graphical designer and also printing technician instead.


Happy to be here - have a nice day, everyone!

I'm giving seaman - transitions a listen now. Great find! Very hypnotic. Thanks for the head's up.

If you have time, you should also check out Rapid Eye Movement. It's another great album of his and it's pretty similar stylistically.

hakobune - Heath Grass

Still one of his best albums IMO.

sokpd avabodha - progulka

I wish the Russian ambient scene got more attention. So much great ambient music coming out of there nowadays.

seaman - Transitions

Another great up and coming ambient artist from Russia. Love the minimalism here.

Jaja's answer is short and to the point.
Applying reverb just to the sounds you want is much easier than trying to EQ out the sounds you don't want later.

But you can experiment with both and choose which you prefer - sometimes sounds develop a life of their own when something is 'left to chance'.....

Some of the sounds in my music started off in other projects. They did not fit what I was working on at the time, but were inspiration in themselves.

Congrats, Anthony, I definitely stay tuned!!! Will be ordering when Robert Davies' "Elemental Shimmer" will be out. All the best!!!
