- been playing a bunch of Endless Melancholy that I picked up from bandcamp. Interesting material. Some are minimal subtle piano, some are Hecker-like drone crescendos.

- Fenton :: Pup  -- also bought from bandcamp. He is Shuttle358, but this time playing fairly minimal guitar. Good stuff.

New releases out now on Virtual and txt...

I haven't bought these but been streaming on Bandcamp. 

The two on Virtual are very mediocre and I wouldn't order the CD's.  On the other hand, the new Autumn of Communion on txt, called "Polydeuces,"  is pretty good.  It has some psytrance beats like the Ultimae label (Solar Fields, Carbon Based Lifeforms, etc.).  Very similar to CBL and Namlook in spots.  More active style than the previous long series they did.

You would be right.

As well as the well known albums and pieces Steve has a number of little hidden gems, not generally so well known.
Sitting at work at present so unable to list ones I like but will dig the info out when at home.
(aha - one is 'Hovering' on Dreaming...now, then....)

I also like Tuu - The Frozen Lands. Perhaps not as layered, but very spacey and atmospheric.

I have not been getting everything Steve does for a number of years - would I be right in thinking that the deep space sound of 'The Magnificent Void' is less prominent in his releses?

I know that at least Loren has a surround sound system, so this seems an appropriate place to post this. Mode Recordings has released a series of DVD-A and DVD discs containing all of Subotnick's pieces recorded in quad - which began with Touch. Scroll down to the bottom of the link for links to each release. They also have visual components and interviews.

I have all three volumes and they're treasures. Volume 2, with Sidewinder and Until Spring, is a personal favourite but each is exquisite - modular synthesis with detailed spacial control as part of the composition. Highly recommended - and if you search a bit, also found through Amazon.

Morton Subotnick interview

I posted this elsewhere in the forum but feel its better suited here

I have that Desert Colection CD. It is superb. will play that tonight and remind myself of the track in the OP. Hope there will be a volume 2 of this.

I have been checking out Max Carbacho and Amhir Baghira's work in recent months and enjoyed it all. Will have to become more immersed and familiar with the music of both.

Agree about Cyclone drone on. I like that album a lot. Something a bit different with challenging (but interesting  :) ) vocals. That "Bent Cold Sidewalk" is actually quite catchy  ;). Great track name also - Rising Runner Missed By Endless Sender. The album cover is one of the things that made me notice TD back in '78 .A lad walking about the school carrying his Cyclone LP , remember when everyone used to do that. I think I had heard snippets of Phaedra and Rubycon before that, so these albums hooked me in for life.

Moss Garden CDs are wonderful, some of my favourite ambient music. I see there is an ep listed on discogs which is apparently a free download from the "Kaiko" bandcamp. Haven't heard that so will check it out.

Current play - Steve Roach - Live in Tuscon , excellent.
