Well, here's a deep vein for this thread - an entire album of pieces for free download.
rik maclean, proprietor of ping things, invited us to create a release for the ping things label
in honour of THE AMBiENT PiNG’s 10th Anniversary (August 18th, 2009) and we assembled a
12-track album of soundscapes selected from 10 years of dream
STATE performances at the PiNG.a decade dreaming
is now available as a free and legal download (240 kps mp3s) at
the ping things label blog and we hope you enjoy this journey through the past with us.
These aren't throwaway tracks but works that contain the deepest aspects of our sonic essence.
We're honoured to include contributions from many of the great artists we've played with
throughout these years: Alan Bloor
(Pholde), Jim Field
(spacenoiz), Eric Hopper
(Sylken), Wally Jericho
, James Johnson
, cheryl o
and Steven Sauvé
The prime details are included on the DIY "CD" cover and tray card but I've also been building
a bloglike page of Extended Liner Notes
for people who like to know what's behind the music. Here's the download page at the ping things blog:http://pingthings.blogspot.com/2009/08/download-decade-dreaming-by-dreamstate.html
For people, like me, who prefer CDs, we’ll also make a Redbook CD version available
(in a standard jewel case) at a very low price in the very near future. (Review copies will be sent out at that time.)
We hope you enjoy the scapes...
