Numina:
This is the rebirth, of sorts, for the Numina discussion thread.  It is bittersweet for me since to be honest not only did I enjoy reading over the original thread by many of my friends & fans but more importantly the posts by my dear friend Andy K are all but lost.  Be that as it may, we must move on, I suppose... and I know Andy K wouldn't want me to get all mushy over him.  And with that, the first post for the Numina Discussion Thread consists of a brand new review of Symbiotic Spaces by Phil Derby:

Numina "Symbiotic Spaces"

(www.gestaltrecords.com, 2007)

2 CDs, 72.22 mins + 71.57 mins

A collection of rare and unreleased tracks, Symbiotic Spaces is a first-rate collection of floating ambience by Jesse Sola aka Numina. Though compilations can sometimes be uneven, this 2-CD set has remarkable flow, moving deftly from pure drifting like "Waves of Reflection" to the tribal timbres of "Broken Silence" to the swirling synths of "Death of a Sun." There is enough variety to keep things interesting, but Numina plays to his strengths by sticking to the smooth ambient style that fans have come to expect. Titles aptly describe the music; for example, you might correctly guess that "Space Lilt" is light and bright,  while "December Sky" imparts a somewhat darker, colder tone, although it is still quite silken. Three of my favorites are back-to-back-to-back at the end of disc one. "Dronecoil" is a sparse piece with a shimmering metallic character that builds just so.  This is followed by "Cells", a deep space journey filled with cool electronics, which surprises by segueing into primitive tribal ambience. Disc one closes with "Anemone [Version Three]," whose dark silky sounds remind me of early Cocteau Twins, softened around the edges a bit. Disc two opens equally strong with "Moonrise," a dark haunter with a touch of Goth. "In the Shadow of Machines" is moody ambient electronics much like Pete Namlook sounded in the early FAX days. And so it goes from strength to strength, some lighter some darker, some abstract some more melodic, all good.

Jim - the music I produced for this indie film was created almost 5 years ago (if not more).  The music is available on all of my releases... to be honest I don't remember what tracks I sent the filmmaker.  I think I also created some sound effects for the film, but don't recall for sure.
