Hey, Brian, I hadn't heard about this collab. Have you got it/heard it/come across a link to samples somewhere?
I also noted another interesting collaboration in the pipeline while googling around, this one perhaps more obvious:
http://12kblog.wordpress.com/2008/09/17/taylor-deupree-dan-abrams-shuttle358-in-the-studio/


It's not quite out yet, but you can stream the whole thing on the Alien 8 website:

That Abrams/Deupree collaboration is on my Must-Have list for sure!   8)

Ryuichi Sakamoto - Undercooled from Playing The Piano
anyone else got this dvd? .... is the packaging always this
"cheap" .... i mean i can barely see the printing on the back
because of the bad resolution .... strange, because the dvd
is marvelous .... great sharp picture and good sound

I have this, too.  Yes, my package is pretty low budget, too.  Sakamoto's name is even misspelled 'Sakmoto,' and is appears that the label was printed over a Celine Dion DVD!  Thought it was a boot, but the DVD itself looks legit and sounds great.  Can't argue about the price (under $25 on eBay).

Thanks for that link. Hecker's work is a rare treat in that genre.

Lately:

Monolake - Momentum (I always love Monolake no matter what)

Zoviet France - Mohnomishe (wonderful stuff, gritty and bizarre, druggy and weird)

Shuttle358 - optimal.lp (very nice early 12k glitch work, more "naive" and lo-fi than I remembered)

Ken Ishii - Innerelements (so wonderful, rarely discussed)

V/A – Resonant Embers – Twenty Hertz
(Only a few standouts on the comp: Ubeboet; Paul Bradley, and Andrew Lillies.  The rest seem to drown in obscure experimental minimalism.  Although the Andrew Liles song really did surprise me….a mediocre comp to say the least)

Aidan Baker – Exoskelton Heart – Crucial Bliss
(Not his best effort although I really like the second track.  The first cut is more of the same and not too different from his dozen other releases.)

Monolake – Hong Kong Remastered – Imbalance
(Very happy when I found out they were going to reissue the Hong Kong CD without the tin can.  Although I own the original one on Chain Reaction…track 5 always skips due to a couple of surface scratches.  The packaging was great but I still hated those tin cans.  I was always nervous something would happen to the CD’s…on another note the label Basses Frequencies uses these same tin cans and once again I had to get a fork to wrench one of them open.)

Monolake – Hong Kong Remastered – Imbalance

I can't really imagine these needed remastering. Is there any appreciable difference?

Mark, I don't think so, personally. This from a recent review of mine:

"[...] Like Interstate, Hongkong has been remastered, though the gains claimed for this process by Henke are not that perceptible on initial listening (removal of the track "Index I" is more so, however, Henke feeling it to be incongruent, so heads up to those looking for an updated replica of the original release: this isn't it).[...]"

I've been enjoying a couple of electro-techno gems:

Oil 10 - "Beyond", "Arena", and "Links".

Not sure why this guy isn't more well known; this is great stuff.  Amazing production, lots of depth, and interesting sounds - recommended.  "Links" is more minimal, the others more beat-driven - all worth a listen.

Vir Unis - Pulse n Atmo.

Was listening to this for the first time in ages and realised that the rhythm i am often tapping out when at a traffic lights, or at home while thinking is the rhythm from the first track.......Somehow it has just stuck and as i tap it out unconsciously so often must count as my favourite rhythm in music!!

Klaus Schulze - Floating (from Moondawn: The Original Master)

A track that will remain a highlight in electronic music until the end of times.

I am ripping a bunch of older cd's & rediscovering music I haven't heard in awhile...

Casino Versus Japan - Go Hawaii
Robert Lippok - Falling Into Komëit
A Small Good Thing - Slim Westerns
Arovane - Tides
Cyber Zen Sound Engine - Auslander
Tom Heasley - Where The Earth Meets The Sky
Pan American - the river made no sound

In the rush to keep up with all the new music that is constantly coming out, it's easy to forget about gems like these.

some beauties today..

taylor deupree - sea last EP
(imo it may be his best piece yet, such a graceful piece of sound.. i also look forward to his Shuttle358 collab.)

richard skelton - marking time 
(fantastic release, if you like Rameses III's Matanuska or their Night Of Ankou cd, you simply cannot go wrong on this one)

alio die & martina galvagni - eleusian lullaby 
alio die & saffron wood - corteggiando le messi
(if there's one artist only i can take away from my ambient collection, it would be Alio Die)

and;

pole - pole 1 2 3  (i think i'm one of the few but i like this re-issue better that GAS' recent one)

seth nehil & matt marble - ecclipses (an interesting one.. but features some horrible frequency riffs)

mwvm - rotations (silber)

Still on the ambient guitar drone tip here. Keep coming back, and this album is one of the better digs in the archaeology. A video for the first track, "context. where?", has appeared on youtube here:

Sounds interesting.
I've heard some choral music from Rachmaninov and I love it. Extremely beautiful. Although I'm not religious and dont know what they sing.



Maybe, in a certain way, it is the ultimate 'ambient' music. :)
