Thanks guys for lsitening in, I hope you enjoyed it.

I think I only heard the last song, but I think it was a quite long one, sounded good!
Nice to hear your voice at the end of the album!

It sounds great Loren!

I agree!  Lorens drones never disappoint

I am tuned in I am too ;)

It is on right now so you tell me.  ;D

I am listening now! :)

when is it swedish time ? :)

There used to be a really excellent label out there called Manifold Records.  They've been inactive for several years now, since 2007 I believe.  Anyway, they released an album called "The Nature of Sand" that included individual tracks by Illusion of Safety, Life Garden, and Voice of Eye.  Manifold also released albums called "Narratives:  Music for Fiction" by Paul Schutze/Voice of Eye/Robert Rich and another called "Guru Means Slayer of Darkness" by Illusion of Safety/Hands To/Bequeen.  These three-artist albums overlap by common artists and make kind of a nice trilogy of dark ambient music.  Many of the Manifold releases are still available via discogs and include the excellent compilations Endless 1 and Endless 2.  I'll have to check out the Life Garden/Voice of Eye collaboration you mention.  Thanks!

This one is a lot more "smooth" though.

I can really recommend this album. I remember the first time I heard it it was on new years eve, the fireworks was outside, yeah such a magic moment... and I drifted away in my dreams..

wow :)

Finally on "Calibration", an entire track was taken from the previously released album "Perfume" by Klaus Wiese.

Oh geez.  That's really disappointing to read.  :(

This is very disappointing to hear.  I like what I've heard of his more recent releases.  I remember that on an early album ("In Search of Sanity," I think) he used an extended sample from one of Steve Roach's early 90s albums without getting clearance first.


Yeah I agree one full track is just unbelievable.. I thought Klaus and him was close friends...

I think 2013 has been a really bad music year... no 4.5 or 5 star releases  only some 4 stars for me..

Meshuggah - Electric Red

well let me guess, another super flexible product with terrible sound quality...
usually that is the way... it is not often both worlds meet together.

I cant fathom how you have an opinion about this metal frame and keyboard when it hardly makes a sound and one that you have not heard, unless you mean that NI soft synths have a terrible sound quality and this man has something to do with the creation of that company so......???  Did you actually read the quote or go to website.  It is the "idea" of something that is one of the most powerful forces on this planet. Its usually simple in essence and can often be extraordinary in completion.

I look it into a more historic context.. how much synths does really sound good ? and is anything special ?
Most digital synths sounds the same average sound...  If it is analogue digital hybrid I would very happy...
Yes please to Analogue OSCs and Filters.  If not it will probably sound just like any other synth out there.
But we will see..the odds are still low...I have seen so many new synths hyped over the years..same hype.. usually always amazing in all ways, good to use and perform with but always lack the good sound. Luckily you can get even a crap sounding synth to sound good with an extensive effect chain that is basically my approach.  If I had a bigger budget to spend on synths I would probably had preferred to use more analogue or hardware synths.
