Been listening to the new Jeff Pearce album, great stuff, though I'm not sure if I'd rate it quite as highly as his last full length. You can listen to or order the album here:

https://jeffpearcemusic.bandcamp.com/album/follow-the-river-home

The album is on sale right now, $5 for the download, $7+shipping for the CD. I ordered the CD but have been listening to the download while I'm waiting for it to arrive.

Stratosphere - Rise

https://projektrecords.bandcamp.com/album/rise

Took a chance on this due to the Projekt sale. Some nice guitar based ambient veering between drones and lighter ambient washes. I really enjoyed this one and will probably be checking out some of the back catalog.

Intrusion - the Seduction of Silence

https://echospacedetroit.bandcamp.com/album/the-seduction-of-silence-2

I'm very skeptical of newer dub techno releases, but I really liked this. Very hypnotic but not generic sounding IMHO.

Unfortunately, as you said, he's been silent in the ambient world for years. I think he still plays in a band for live gigs, but it's not ambient.
I'll chat him up on FB and see what's happening.

To bump this up: does anybody know if Tange is still active ? I've recently listened to his albums on Earth Mantra, especially the fantastic "A Tub Full of Tange". Unfortunately he hasn't released anything in the last 4 years. Does anyboday here know if Gordon is still active in Ambient music ?

Just a heads up for those of you who will be in Southern California this month. I will be performing a short set (around 20 minutes) as a part of this concert:



Afterward their will be some sort of jam with all the musicians involved. Hope you can make it.

Moby:  Long Ambients 1. - Sparse and mostly pretty, and surprisingly good.  Not sure why I was so surprised... maybe thought it would sound too cliche', but Moby nails it.  Totally free download, over 3 hours on his site.  http://moby.com/la1/

Scott Lawlor:  Bells for an Imaginary Audience.  - not literally just bells I don't think- sounded like some gongs and bowls etc in the mix as well.  Sometimes albums of exclusively vibrating instruments can be over or underplayed, either too klanky and loud, or just too boring and uninspired.  Scott Lawlor does a good job balancing the space with the sound, keeping it calm while engaging.  Good stuff- https://ethereallive.bandcamp.com/album/bells-for-an-imaginary-audience-2

While Adobe Audition is the perfect programm for audio cut, editing, analyzing, converting and batching, I would not use it for recording.
Try Logic X - imo the best DAW, audio-engine: https://itunes.apple.com/en/app/logic-pro-x/id634148309?mt=12

I'm still tempted to try Studio One from Presonus.

Adobe Audition was pissing me off too often, so I recently switched to Studio One. At the moment, I'm using it only for mixing/mastering, but it's working out beautifully. In the future I'll be exploring the possibility of using it exclusively (for composing).
