I not well acquainted with the darker side of ambient, so I love seeing your recommendations, phobos, and exploring the samples.
Been traveling this past week and listening to music loaded on an old iPod:
Steve Roach - Possible Planet
When this first came out, it seemed like a natural extension of some of the themes explored in Early Man. In hindsight, however, this really stands out as a unique release in the Roach cannon. It a wonderful set of soundscapes, combining a wide range of frequencies and textures.
Sawako - Hum
Experimental and whimsical goodness from 12k.
Oophoi and Tau Ceti - Celestial Geometries
I haven't listened to this in a long time. I was blown away revisiting it. Some of the best space music evar.
Has anyone listened to the two new 12k releases? Illuha's Interstices and Seaworthy/Deupree's Wood, Winter, Hollow? I've listened to the samples and can't quite decide whether I want to take the plunge.
