Hello, my name is Cole. I'm 21 and from Birmingham, England.

I'm currently studying Science at college with a view to going on to study Environmental Science at university.
I have a qualification in music, and spent most of my time there composing my own ambient music. I'm saving up for a small, home-recording studio and hope to be releasing music pretty soon.

I enjoy: Hiking, Photography, Music, Reading, Writing, Cycling and playing the odd video-game.

Cheers!

Okay. . . .to begin with I've been on this forum since around March of 2008. Not many post. Just a few.
I started listening to Pink Floyd, ELP, Yes, etc., etc., before getting into the Dream (Tangerine Dream) back in 1978. My first album was Thief. A co-worker introduced me to Sorceror and I was blown away. Well, I thought so until I went out and bought TD's Ricochet, Rubycon and Phaedra. The next ten years I bought whatever TD albums I could find (new or used) along with Vangelis, Kitaro, Jean Michel Jarre, Michael Garrison, etc. But my main group would be and still is Tangerine Dream. Sometime before 1989 I discovered Kit Watkins Azure. And I was taken into another direction. Thats when I fell out of TD as they were going in a different direction. It wasnt until the 90's when Edgar added vocals to TD when I completely stopped listening to the Dream. One night out in the middle of Mojave desert in SoCal I was camping out after a nice soak in Deep creek Hot Springs I heard on the radio Hearts of Space. They were playing Robert Rich, Steve Roach, etc. That was my first time hearing Roach and Rich's music. I have all of Steve's albums and most of Roberts along with Vidna Obmana and other ambient artist I have collected in the last ten years plus. My first Roach concert was at a coffee shop in Santa Monica back in 1997. Since then I've been to see Steve every year that he's played here in SoCal or I would drive or fly to see him perform live. A MUST. I am hoping to make it to this years Soundquest Fest in Tucson. More recently I've been discovering Between Interval, Redshift and others. There are just so many styles of ambient/electospace music out there. But my one passion for group is still Tangerine Dream. The last 5 years I've gotten back into the Dream. Flying across the Pond 3 times in the last three years to see Edgar and company perform live in London, Berlin and back to London this year to see TD perform at the historic Royal Albert Hall. TD is not the Dream it once was. But they are still putting out some good and not so good music after 40 years. For those who still listen to Tangerine Dream I would recomd their latest live album Zeitgest live at the Royal Albert Hall 2010 3cd set. A must. If anyone out there has any recommendations of new or old ambient artist please let me know. Thank you.

Hello!

My name is David, I'm currently involved with the project Eddie Entropy, which is (after a number of digressions) an industrially-tinged dark ambient. 

I am 36 years old, live in Westminster, CA and manage a yoga studio for my day gig (pretty much a dream job). I am currently going through a divorce with my wife of 17 years.  It's strange being single after 20 years in a relationship (we started dating 3 years before marriage), haven't really had the nerve to actually enter the dating scene.

I've been involved in music since 17 and used to release cassettes under a wide variety of project names.  I've also been in a few bands over the years.  Currently I'm pretty obsessed with krautrock and Witch House music. I cycle through phases pretty regularly. 

I'm happy to be on here and really enjoy the pleasant community this forum fosters!
as it is, so be it

Thanks mgriffin. I dont post much here. Sorry. I do read alot and if I find something interesting I will post. This is an excellent site. One of the best I might add. I am a huge Tangerine Dream fan and I do post alot on their forum. I know its not the Dream it once was but. . . . Anyways, did you make it out to Tucson for the Soundquest Fest? I wanted to go soooo bad. I just could not call in sick to work for this. My first time in 16 years not seeing Steve perform live. Bummer.

hello, I'm new here.

my name is Adam and I was put on to this place by a friend who had been coming to this forum for album recommendations a while back.

I'm from Connecticut, US, and floundering post college right now, making ambient/electroacoustic music in my apartment as well as several other projects involving musical weirdness. At some point I might go back to school for a composition degree. We shall see though.

I agree! Good to see you here, Bob.
