Missing in action--where are they now?
« on: October 18, 2014, 09:28:52 AM »
Thom Brennan.  Seems to have disappeared from the earth (along with Tetsu Inoue). No new album for five or so years.

Andrey Faryus (Faria Records).  I assume the label folded, but never heard anything for years.

Patrick O Hearn.  Seems ages ago there was new music.

Steve Roach.  No new album in about three months.  I'm starting to worry.   ;)

Andrey Sadovnikov aka Faryus sold his label some years ago. His latest album is Quiet Songs From Misty Places. http://www.discogs.com/Faryus-Vadim-Bondarenko-Quiet-Songs-From-Misty-Places/release/2753652

Likely a typo. I've never heard of a CD released on a Saturday.  ;)

Exactly.  I got that information from the Projekt website.  Also, the CD is not listed for sale yet on Steve's website.

Didn't Bloodmoon come out just two weeks ago?  Hehe, how soon we forget.  ;)
Take care.

Inoue's been missing for a couple of years or more now.  Phonaut's post on it from 2012:  http://phonaut.wordpress.com/2012/06/21/where-is-tetsu-inoue/

The last paragraph explains why Phonaut would be one of the people to likely know and be concerned.

I thought I saw a mention of Thom Brennan somewhere - but I can't recall it now. 

Steve Roach is alive and well.  And planning more releases.  He decided to take a few days off after Bloodmoon before forging ahead.

I miss Thom Brennan, I hope he start to release music again.
I also miss steve roach more steady flow of releases, considering he is lives in an old age he should probably
release as much as he can while he can. His last releases is going towards right direction.

Steve is 59. Personally I don't think that is such an ancient age. In my view, a composer (in any genre) can just carry on composing, perhaps more so in ambient.

I do not mind Klaus shulze releases but it his last album was very bad.. He have become lazy sounds like he is using only omnisphere presets now days.. But I follow the Berlin school genre.. But I think it is Mario schönwalder and Co that have most to offer to the Berlin school genre now.
The free system projekt i wish did release more was many years ago now.  Same with pollard.
