I think this is a heady and hypnotic album, mature and subtle. The instrumentation is varied and balanced and the percussive elements blend very well overall. Production wise, it's very 'full' (in terms of spectral balance) and balanced.

Good stuff all round !
Just ordered this... sounds great, and quite strange (but in a good way!) Looking forward to getting this!

Downloading Iris it touches on many areas and comes together in a beautiful celebration, in most parts, of the guitar. Really love the way you have created space for the instrument to shine.

Really Fine work!

don't know what to say, thouroughly enjoyed his books, will miss his sideways humour and the hints that he knew more about things than he let on.....

Glad to hear you find the Bandcamp site appealing, Thirdsystem (oops had your name wrong before) Thanks.

I'll eventually put all of our releases up there (30 there already).
It is such a great outlet -- fast, very well organized, and with streaming.
I'm really impressed by the whole Bandcamp model.
Very nice looking, new bandcamp page for DataObscura, will prove very useful  :)

Off to check it out right now.

Opaline is excellent Pete. Congratulations, a really beautiful piece of work.

Another new addition that is on constant play this week Andy Tillison Diskdrive - Fog ....... The guy from prog rockers The Tangent (ace band btw !!). Electronic/ambient/berlin school with a wee hint of jazz and prog rock. Fair few genres then :). Absolutely superb album. They have found a couple of boxes of this hard to get CD and it can be ordered from The Tangent's website. Highly recommended, something a wee bit different.

I have to say I miss both W & W, & E-Dition very much not to mention IE as well. I wish their was some alternative but this style of music just doesn't seem to have the fan base to support such an endeavor. I sometimes wonder how history will judge this music, or if will even last long enough for it to be remembered.

Thanks, Loren. Yeah, magazines just didn't seem to be able to hold on in this genre. It wasn't for lack of trying or quality writing. I admit Wind and Wire was less "professional" looking than either E-Dition or IE (in any of its incarnations), but with time, it could've been. If I win the lottery, and retire form my day job, maybe I will give it another try. Gotta fill my golden years with something to do! I believe Expose (a fine fanzine of progressive music that always ran lots of ambient reviews as well) has also finally bitten the dust. Emails to the editor have gone unanswered.

The past was a great time for mags at one point, because we also had Asterism, too, which was a mag put out by Jeff Berkwitz (sp?). Even New Age Voice, at its inception, featured ambient reviews as well as columns by Alan Bogle and, I believe, Scott Raymond. It was a great time and people seemed genuinely excited about the ambient music scene. Well, at least our dear and true friend Richard Gurtler is still flying his flags high, bless him.  :)
