Hi Anthony,

Yes, I hope that after all this "chill & ambient" Spring at last we'll have a "rocking" Summer  ;)

Julian - If you're into ambient & sound-design you must come by the PiNG man.
You'll find a small community of like-minded artists and audience in downtown Toronto.
Say Hi when you come (I usually have a black bandana on) and we can chat and I'll introduce you to a few people.
If we've already talked - please forgive my unawesome memory.   :-[

Next Tuesday's show will be really something with artists I have extra-high respect for. (Hurdy-Gurdy with looping, etc...)

Details here: http://www.theambientping.com

Thanks Scott,

Thanks for inviting :)

It's good to know that such a community exists here in Toronto.
I'll be glad to come and meet you and others. I'll see if I can make it to next Tuesday.

Aairria - Destroyer of Worlds... love it!   He's actually a great guy - and has some really great music released under various names.  I first ran across him on StillStream - Darrell was playing a track and it made me ask him what it was and where to get it.   

Julian - welcome!  Great to have a new member on the site!  This is a very good place to post and support each others music.

I've posted a few times but haven't done a formal intro. I'm Eric Strang in eastern Washington state. I was introduced to electronic music by my uncle way back in 1981. He was listening to Jean Michel Jarre's "Les Chants Magnetiques" which had just come out. From there I went on to artists such as Tangerine Dream and Steve Roach. 30 years later there is still some awesome stuff being done. Thanks for having me and thanks to those of you that put the music out.

Hi Eric
Here's a formal welcome to the forum to go along with your formal intro. I happen to be visiting your neck of the woods at the moment. It's hot here!
Cheers,
Mike

Hi Eric! Good to see you here! It's hot here, too. Of course in south Texas it's always hot this time of year.  ::)

Hmmm.... I joined this forum three years ago (almost to the day) - obviously, I don't post much, and I must not read as much as I thought because I've only tonight come across this thread!

So: I'm a fair bit older than the majority here, for whatever that's worth. Born in a mid-Atlantic state (of mind) and spent the first couple of decades in various cities and towns in the Northeast U.S. Currently living in the southern half of Colorado's Front Range.

I've done more types of work than I care to remember - the longest episodes were nearly 20 years in retail record stores, and 15 as an IT guy. Now, all I do is create music and sell off my record collection (anyone looking for obscurities from the '70s and early '80s?).

Started my music "career" as the singer in rock bands (covers and original prog in the '70s, new wavey stuff in the '80s, prog in the '90s, and finished a two year stint in a progressive garage trio last summer). I've been serious about creating ambient/electronic/experimental atmospheres since the beginning of this century. Some of you are familiar with the music from Embracing the Glass (we now call ourselves Sampson-Carroll). I also work with Sara Ayers (we had an EP on Atmoworks for a bit - it's now downloadable from a few places, and we've some new music in the works. Honest!), collaborate with others whenever the opportunity arises, but mostly work on my own. I do play synthesizers, but my voice is my primary instrument - generally lyricless, often looped and layered. I like structured music a lot, and have no problems playing it, but I seem to be the most comfortable in an improvisational setting.

I love science fiction, loathe politics, am stunned by the callous disregard those with the "might" have for those without it. Plain food eater: no meat and easy on the spices. Split pea soup is wonderful. :)

Glad to be here. The conversations are genuine and thoughtful. The pointers to music I wouldn't otherwise be aware of are very much appreciated.

Hi Jeff.

Thanks for posting the full introduction. It's always interesting to learn a little more about people who post on the forum.
