I think this is a heady and hypnotic album, mature and subtle. The instrumentation is varied and balanced and the percussive elements blend very well overall. Production wise, it's very 'full' (in terms of spectral balance) and balanced.

Good stuff all round !

"Letters" was the first FLAC I injected into my new Pono. It sounds rich and full with the blend of trad instruments and electronics.  8)

Thanks, Pete and Scott!  Scott, I'm honored to be the first FLAC for your Pono.  I think both dreamSTATE and Igneous Flame would sound even better in 24-bit sound.

Got your message, Richard!

SOME STRAY MUSIC, AN UPCOMING MIX AND AN UPCOMING ECHOES INTERVIEW

An update:  I've just posted 2 additional pieces to my "odds and sods" Soundcloud page.  One is an unreleased piece from around the time I was recording Gongland, and the other is a minimalist electronic piece I recorded over the weekend to test out some new sounds.

I was recently invited by French radio program Solenopole to provide a 50-minute mix of my music and influences.  The show's mixes are streamable off the internet.  Past participants have included Rapoon and Laszlo Hortobagyi.  I'll let you know when my mix becomes available.  Some past mixes are located here:

http://solenopole.blogspot.fr/2011/12/solenomix.html

I was interviewed this month by John Diliberto for his Echoes radio show.  "Letters To The Farthest Star" made it to his Top 25 for February.  My interview segment is scheduled to air on April 6.

http://echoes.org/2015/03/03/echoes-top-25-for-february-2015/

Two nice reviews of Letters from John Shanahan of Hypnagogue and Peter Thelen of Expose Magazine came in this past week, too (besides Bert Strolenberg's thoughtful one for Sonic Immersion):

It should be available on podcast via iTunes within a few weeks.

My 50-minute mix of music and influences is also up on the Solenopole site now:

For those who may have missed it the first time, Echoes is rebroadcasting their interview with me this evening.

I'm currently in exploratory mode working on pieces for my next album.  I've been posting some of my experiments to my Soundcloud page and plan to continue doing this in the coming months.

I like what I'm hearing on soundcloud and the title suits the music well.

Thanks, Scott.  The final mix of the Lumin segment is part of a longer suite I've been working on over the past few months.  The project's been coming along nicely so far.  There's a bit in there of the Wavestation SR I picked from Loren many moons ago, among other things.

NEW ALBUM COMPLETED

I'm pleased (and relieved) to say that I've finally completed recording and mixing a new album for Projekt.  The album is called "Gone To Ground."  One surprise is that it will be a double CD--my first one, not counting the "Wolf/Migration" reissue.  It will be priced slightly more than a single CD, but not a huge jump.  This album is more hypnotic and dreamlike than my last one.  My friend Robert Rich will be mastering it (he also contributes flutes to one track).  The release date is not firmed up yet, but it may be as soon as this Winter.  I'll provide an update here when I have more information.

Wow, great news Forrest, you are crank them out now.  ;D  Wish I could say the same thing, maybe once I get my studio moved I can get back to stuff myself.
Take care.

Loren and Seren,

Thanks.  It's been a pretty crazy year, so maybe I had a lot of excess creative energy to burn...

Just got the first run at the master from Robert.  I'm sure I'll be in no mood to hear it anymore once I'm done with this process... ;)
