Everything and Nothing / Re: A world full oblivion

Heres a few images I took of a State park thats very close to where I live.  Its very serene but what makes it more so that cannot be known from looking at the images is that a few miles away is an immense super Walmart and all the suburban noise, traffic and chaos that accompanies it.  In the other direction about a 1/2 miles is the intercostal waterway and then the Atlantic ocean.

This place is a strange anomaly because deep within other then a few distant cell phone towers there are no signs or noise of the pandemonium that reigns quite close.

One gets a real sense of a pre historic past as this place has not be touched since mother nature original created it......oh and it does have a few formidable residents such as large Alligators, Wild Boar and Diamond Back Rattlesnakes but you have to go looking or be just unlucky to find them.  People do kayak these waters.

I've not listened to The Winter Ghost as yet - there are a lot of his releases I've not heard.

I have Lumen (3" cdr), Pulse and Atmo, Stand Still Like the Hummingbird, Thermal Transfer.

I have not explored drones on my voyager.....yet.

Personally I would look elsewhere then Behringer Model D....not being snobby because I have a minimoog but because there are better options out there within the similar price points that are not trying to be like something else but instead are a unique voice.

Artruria Brutes...any of them.

Roland SE-02....this little thing has a sound, with lots of tweaking possibilities.

Novation Bass Station 2....seems very solid

Moog Sub 37.....big jump in price but used has less sting and would be my first choice for huge programing potential and its duophonic.


I know you did not ask for recommendations but when I saw the word Behringer I had to suggest others for you  to look at in case you had not considered them.

Things get more interesting with the addition of Fx, soft or hard and guitar pedals can really expand the sonic potential.

I love mixing pedals and synths. It's something that I've been doing more of with my new setup and it's opened me up to a lot more soundscaping possibilities.

I was actually thinking about getting a Behringer Model D to do some deep drones. That's what inspired this topic TBH. Plus, I've been thinking about albums like Time Machines by Coil and I'm wondering if a lot of that was done with bass synths.

Steve's longform pieces are well worth getting into - I was recently listening to Slow Heat and The Dream Circle.
   They are a different sort of listen - more akin I think to Robert Rich's sleep concert ideas.

The Passing is an extended version of a track released many years ago and previously only available on a compilation disc.

Many of his releases can 'count' as longform - The Magnificent Void being one of them.

Vir Unis's first releases are worth checking out for a similar vein - The Drift Inside and Aenonian Glow (which I used to put on low level repeat while sleeping.

Then you can explore Roach and Unis collaberations - very different, Body Electric and Blood Machine.
   Blood machine has a real sense of strong rhythms that somehow don't move - much like the blood running round the body....hard to explain....

Thank you very much for the recommendations, I'll be sure to look into those. Listening to some of The Dream Circle now and I quite like what I'm hearing. I can see a bit of that Robert Rich connection you're talking about. Somnium has been a favorite for many years. 

The Unis collaborations were actually a couple of the first Roach records I got, after Origins and At the Edge of Everything. I enjoy them a lot and find them to be great records to play when working on something very focus-driven and detail-oriented in which case a more amorphous piece wouldn't quite provide that same sense of "drive", you know? That and the rhythms are just fascinating to get lost in. I really love that explanation though, for Blood Machine. I've had that exact feeling when listening to it but couldn't quite sum it up so succinctly. Those two work together very well, would love to see another collaboration at some point though I imagine that's pretty unlikely by now. I've heard nothing of Unis's solo work though, I'll be sure to give those a look too. Have you heard The Winter Ghost?

Interesting thread. I am also increasingly concerned regarding the state of our world and society. Perhaps things will improve. I doubt it.

Enjoy coppicing my Cornus shrubs when required. Pruning is quite therapeutic and satisfying I find. I have tried to plant native, indigenous shrubs and trees in my new build garden. It has been quite a challenge starting from scratch but just about there now. Favourite trees have to be Rowans. Managed to plant about six different sorbus species .

I live in a very rural location however I like to escape to this wilderness ;



Glent Tilt, near Blair Athol. Just a bit up the road from me, try to get up to Highland Perthshire at least twice a year. There are remnants and hints of the ancient Caledonian Forest here. Covered the entire country in ancient times. A lot of work being done to preserve and increase these areas. Itís worth it .........

It was one of the best times of my life, beautiful but hard physical work - never needed a gym or to 'exercise'.
   I was hardy enough to work hard, eat lunch and then have a nap in the snow....wouldn't try it now.

I now work in a hospital - so very different environment. I try to get to my local favourite woodlands as often as I can... 8)
