You're right about life having ups and downs. I'm definitely in a better place career-wise and as a person than I was two years ago though.

With regards to labels, I haven't reached out recently. In the past, I released two albums on Black Dingo Records, a short-lived label ran by Duff Egan, but the label ended before Desolation was finished. Oceanscape was re-released on GV Sound years prior to that. There was a local label that had some interest, but they ended up shutting down late last year before I could record anything for them.

I thought about reaching out to Pantheon, ZHELEZOBETON, and Ostroga (Vitaly Maklakov aka Kromeshna). I have about 60-70 minutes of material that is close to being ready to release, one of which is a 31 minute longform drone piece.

Thanks for the compliment regarding Desolation. I love making dark dronescapes.

My friend launched the label. If you are interested, then I can give him a link to your music. Perhaps he will be interested.

Feel free to share my Bandcamp with him. Just keep in mind that I'm not done with my next album yet.

A couple of days ago I discovered two more excellent albums from last year.
Thanks to the fact that I followed Chris in Bandcamp, I discovered the new artist Kelly David, and thanks to Andrew Sherwell's Facebook post, I learned about the first Krzysztof Kotlinski album.

Kelly David - Meditation In Green

Krzysztof Kotlinski - Black Rain
Multifaceted structured dronescapes and modern electro-acoustic experiments. A bright discovery for me.

Hi guys,

I usually try to avoid such list, but let's make an exception. But I am afraid the line-up will be quite long, I am unable to squeeze it and most likely I didn't mention all titles I wanted..., in random order...

Richard :)

Phobos "Celestial Harmonics" CD
https://frozenlightlabel.bandcamp.com/album/celestial-harmonics



Thanks Richard ;) Much appreciated

Feel free to share my Bandcamp with him. Just keep in mind that I'm not done with my next album yet.

My friend, the founder of the label, said that your music is not suitable for his label.

I talked with Vitaly Maklakov.
At the moment, he can publish CDr in the amount of 10 pieces. I gave him a link to your bandcamp music.
As soon as I get an answer from him, I'll let you know.

That's okay.

Also, I didn't know you had Vitaly Maklakov's contact info.

Honestly, I've been very busy starting my new job this week so I haven't even been thinking about getting on a label.

Good health!

Vitaly agrees to release your new album.
He persistently asked to discuss the design with him in advance. He is a painter and he does everything himself from beginning to end.

By the way, he liked your logo in the spirit of the Middle Ages.

I will send you his email in PM.

Awesome. Thanks again! I appreciate the complement regarding the logo.

I remember reading somewhere that he's an art instructor, so I wouldn't have any issues with him doing any artwork. I like his album covers a lot.

I'm aiming to get my next album done in the next month or so. I'll definitely contact him sooner than that.

I always like reading these lists because I am typically so far behind on new releases.
