Tom Heasley- On The Sensations of Tone
I gave this one a good head phoning last night, gotta say I love it, and probably haven't given it the attention it could have received. A few years back there was a "dream collaborations" topic on this forum, and I think I put Heasley with Oophoi- to me these two were kindered spirits, and it would have been terrific- Heasley's stuff is DEEP. And the processed tuba sounds give it a nice, unconventional sound by ambient standards. It's not terrifyingly dark, nor is it ethereal or pretty. It's a mesmerizing sound and as good as the deepest Oophoi material.
Feeling like a broken record mentioning this here in the past
but I also like going back to Steve Roach's World's Edge, actually just Disc 2. It's an exactly 60 minute one track wonder of Steve's career. Someone actually gave me World's Edge for my high school graduation back in '92! Still holding its own after so long, I forget about this one having so much music now on my itunes and computer, but I still give it a good listen when in the mood.
Also just occasionally going back to the good stuff from the early and mid 90's... hearts of space fathom, Suspended Memories, anything by Tuu, Kenneth Newby, etc. all are ones that I marvel at from a different but equally amazed perspective when listening again, after a long break.
