I especially love the part starting at 34 minutes where G-A-E-G-D-E melody kicks in

Hi Loren,

Richard Lainhart did some wonderful work with Kyma.  I think his Threshold piece had some Kyma transformations of New York street sounds and he's also processed lap steel guitar through it:

Yes, it is my turn.  :D  A long time friend of mine who does sound design in the film industry has owned one for years. He's been raving to me about how great it is and has been begging me to come over and check it out. Well I found out why he's been begging me to come over, he doesn't understand it and he's hoping I might be the person who might unlock it's secrets for him.  :D

So after showing me the basics he packed it up and gave it to me and told me to report back to him in 6 months. It's a Capybara 320 and not a Pacarana. Not sure how much DSP it has but I can't complain about it since it's not costing me a dime. Just what I need another time suck  ;), hopefully I'll make some headway and come up with some interesting results. I'll let you all know what happens.

Yeah, "AeroAreA" 4CD is a monster release, my order arrived few days ago from Mathias. Can't wait to enter the Drone heaven during the coming hours and days... It's really nice to see this Russian label releasing Mathias, even if their main focus is trash, hardcore, doom... Kudos to Mathias, Vitaly of GS Productions & 121 for mastering, keep on going, guys!!!

Everything and Nothing / Re: People proof CD jewel cases

I like digipaks the best. Jewel cases scuff and crack too easily. But I still want a plastic tray in my digipaks. I appreciate the desire for some labels to release eco-friendly sleeves and to not use trays, but the collector in me isn't planning to place my collection a landfill anytime soon.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Ambient/Electronica Scores for Movies
« Last post by 9dragons on August 07, 2015, 05:38:36 PM »
There have been some great electronic/ambient scores for films lately. I don't know if this is a new trend but it feels like it. Recently got the soundtrack for the original Tron (1982) by Wendy Carlos, and along with Edgar Rothermich's recent re-recording of the incomparable Blade Runner score by Vangelis, it's got me thinking about electronic beauty and weirdness in more recent films. For some of these films, the music is an inseparable part of the presentation; some may lack traditional narrative storylines in favor of pure visual expression, and sometimes it works...but I'm enjoying to the extreme most of these movies because of my deep love of electronics in music.

A quick short list of recent movies and their soundtrack authors (will use soundtrack and score interchangeably, because I can't help it):

Beyond the Black Rainbow: Sinoia Caves
Under the Skin: Mica Levi
Ex Machina: Ben Salisbury/Geoff Barrow
Kumiko the Treasure Hunter: The Octopus Project
Enemy: Danny Bensi/Saunder Jurriaans
Maniac (2012): Rob
It Follows: Disasterpeace

Not to forget more mainstream work like Daft Punk's for Tron Legacy...which reaches to the heights of soundtrack greatness...

I kept expecting that labels/artists etc. would stop using jewel cases...I much prefer the digipak format, a good balance of protective packaging, tactile presentation, and collectbility; or even better, a card stock sleeve alone or inside of a card stock container is preferable. Not sure why it continues to be used (cost?), seems like the people who still buy music prefer something a little more aesthetic; I know I do.

So I now have these three GS Productions releases of Grassow.  Opus Posthumum is fantastic.  Goes through several suites throughout even though it's like one long track.  Harmonia Mundi excellent too, like a cross between his Himalaya and Thom Brennan The Path Not Taken (minus the percussion).  The box set is a real monster.  Trying to absorb the four CDs.  Excellent interview w/Grassow inside on the tray inserts.  Nice to read.

Glad you like all 3 works. Last weekend I took the FLACs of the boxset with me on a +- 4 hour forest walk. Really a great feeling. As mentioned by chris23, disc 2 is the weaker part of the box set, but the rest is fantastic.
