Hypnos Label Releases / Re: RELEASE: Subradial - Ice Diving
« on: December 24, 2020, 10:13:08 AM »
This album took awhile to discover its depths, no pun intended.  But an excellent Hypnos release it is.  I'd recommend hearing it on a home stereo system at low to medium volume, especially on a surround system.

Ice Diving is one of my favorite Hypnos releases and I revisit it often. It reminds me at times of Jeff Greinke's Cities in Fog but without some of the harsher sounding elements of that release. Cities in Fog could be the soundtrack to a horror movie while Ice Diving is more like a documentary soundtrack.

I too am happy to see the forum return. It's been a long while since I've posted but I used to quite enjoy this little corner of the universe and hope to do so again. When I think back on some of the forum communities I was a member of in the years before platforms like Twitter and Facebook/Instagram, I think there is an intimacy to be found in bulletin board communities that I have not found on Twitter and Instagram. Facebook I don't have experience with so I can't comment on that but for what it is worth, I appreciate you keeping this place active Mike. What made me think to check if the forum was back up and running is that I happened to be listening to Viridian Sun earlier tonight. Some of my favorite ambient and space music recordings are on Hypnos. Cheers all.

It's been so long since I listened to her music I'm really looking forward to hearing this. Her early work is quite good.

collaboration with Oophoi! Looking good Mike.

I have fond memories of Backroads. When we lived in Marin my office was just a short walk from Lloyd's place. Many an afternoon I'd walk down and sample new music and chat with Lloyd. Genuinely nice guy and I wish him well.

I have Stoa and will definitely be getting this.

John Surman's music is wonderful. Many fantastic records over the years.

over the past month or so the Immersion series and Dream Circle have been getting regular late night airplay. I enjoy his space music more than the sequencer material, but that may be because I am less familiar with it.
