['ramp] & markus reuter -- ceasing to exist
« on: June 02, 2009, 03:17:49 AM »
Hi all,

I just wanted to make you aware of the collaborative album we -- i. e. the old line-up of ['ramp] -- created in collaboration with touch guitar player Markus Reuter (CentroZoon, Tuner, Robert Rich).

Originally recorded in 2000/2001 but not released before 2007, this is probably the darkest drone-laden album of the entire ['ramp] back catalogue. On electroambientspace.com Phil Derby compared it to "Stalker" by Robert Rich and Brian Lustmord, just to give you an impression what to expect. Paul Rijkens reviewed it as one of the pinnacles of the dark ambient music genre for the Dutch magazine I/O Pages.

The album has now been made available as a legal download from musiczeit.com. I hope to have some additional material from these sessions out soon, too. To get an impression, please click here:

There are some further albums by ['ramp] and by myself available from Extended Moment, too, which might be of interest to you. Please feel free to browse the other entries :).

For those who arenīt too fond of downloads, "ceasing to exist" can still be ordered as a fully-fledged official CD album, for instance directly from me :). Just drop me a line.

Thanks for reading,

Stephen.

Oh yeah, that's why your name sounds so familiar, I must have read it on the CD cover. I bought Ceasing To Exist a few years ago, and was quite impressed with it. Just about as black as black can be, but without sounding over-the-top, like some silly Lustmord album... I must pull that one out again and give it a few spins.

By the way, I LOVE the "Stalker" disc, but the rest of the Lustmord catalog turns me off.

Hi Stephen,

Ceasing is a great album.  That's nice they compared it to Stalker, although I'd say Ceasing is more outer-space kind of stuff to me whereas Stalker is kind of a "haunted (terrestrial) landscape" disc.  Both are spooky, though!  ;D
