New Darshan Ambient CD
« on: July 09, 2012, 08:37:24 AM »
Hello Hypnos Forum family. I'm very happy to announce that my newest album Falling Light will be released on September 11th 2012 on the Lotuspike label! There are 11 tracks with a running time of approximately 1 hour. My wife Nicky did the photography with Jeff Kowal designing the package. Ben Cox did his usual amazing job of mastering. On August 1st I will add some audio samples and video clips here on this thread.

Thank you and I hope you enjoy the music,   ;D

Thank you Thomas. I was just listening to some of the Yodel Drones pieces and they are pretty amazing! Nice work.

Glad you liked the album, Michael.  Very nice vibe on that track you just posted.  Don't know why, but I think I hear a bit of Eno in it.  Thanks for sharing it.  Looking forward to hearing what made the final cut!

Just picked this up.  A really nice one, Michael.  A nice blend of melodic progressive influences and ambient textures.  In places, I thought I could hear influences like Happy The Man, Patrick O'Hearn, Eno (especially Music For Films), Mark Isham, and maybe even a little hint of Genesis.

Just saw your post Forrest. Thank you very much for enjoying the music from the new one. All of those artist's you mentioned have had a major influence no doubt! Music For Films is definitely one of  my favorites. As far as Genesis goes only The Beatles have made a bigger impact on me. For example, if you listen to the quiet parts of Supper's Ready and tracks like Entangled you can really hear some of that on Falling Light. I hope you had a great Christmas Forrest and let's hope the New Year is a great one!
