Glad you like it Chris, it's been a while in the well itself - bubbling around towards release.

I've been a bit slower than usual to listen to this because I ordered the CD, despite not having a CD player in the office any more! The collector in me overrode the practical side of me.

But I gotta say: This is the perfect disc for a Hypnos "reboot" of sorts. It reminds me of what I really liked about Hypnos when I first discovered the label in the early 00's: Somewhat formless ambient music with an experimental edge. Not all Hypnos releases were like that, of course, but it was those kinds of releases that gave the label a unique identity, at least from my point of view.

Listening to this immediately puts me back in the mindset. Long-form drones, metallic spaces, moments of peace that give way to moment of darkness. I absolutely adore it. Grats, Andy.

Modular Grid:

I've been picking some things up to explore with the intent of treating this system as a "used book store" of sorts: Buy some things, play with them, keep the ones that are special, and resell those that are less so. So, some of the things in there may not be around much longer.

Enjoyed listen to the release and your youtube videos.  You have created generative soundscapes of quiet gentle complexity and I agree it is a difference quality of music that usually emanates form modulars. 

Not sure if you ever use modular grid to plan out your system but it is a good way to post the system for others to see if you are so inclined.

Hmm, my last post vanished, so I'll post again. If it's a double, please delete

Hi Mike and all at hypnos,

theAdelaidean (that's him) and deepspace (that's me!) have released our second album on Projekt. As you can imagine, we're super excited.
I'm reminded of the time I released an album through Hypnos all those years ago. It was a truly exciting time for me, and this is no different.
It always feels wonderful to have your music spread through the void with others who are passionate about ambient music.
Here's a link to the new album: It's free for the next week or so.

Cheers!

I just released an E.P. on Dewtone Recordings that contains a few of my modular experiments. It is "name your price" if anyone is interested in checking it out on Bandcamp.

I tend to be drawn to ethereal, drifting ambient that doesn't have a lot of structure. So my system is designed to be more of a generative one than is typical in the modular domain. I'm not necessarily trying to "create" or synthesize new sounds so much as I'm trying to find aural "spaces" and moods that I like and find ways to allow those to evolve in interesting ways.



I'm using a combination of Mutable Instruments Marbles and random triggers to Hermod for sequencing; Arbhar for granular looping and playback; Rings, Plaits, Chord v2, and samples (via Bitbox micro) for sources; FX Aid for reverb; Pam's and Ochd for modulation; QPAS, and scattered utilities for attenuation, mixing, etc. I also uploaded a few videos if you're into the "eurorack and succulents" style scene (haha): https://www.youtube.com/c/InnestiAmbient

I think who creates a drone that lives and breathes (however they conjure it up) is close to building the universe.

Jana your answer to the question is beautiful and so true and much more important than technical wizardry.....I just quote the last sentence.

You just asked how the universe came into being.

^^ This.

This, beacause i think that movement inside drone sound is the primal part of droning to me.

No movement = no drone, no illusion, just boring and static.

A slight shift in one parameter can affect the whole drone.

Yes, i noticed that ... any slight voice detuning, any pitch shift can create a whole new sounding drone. So, you can do like 100 drones from 1 preset, just slight changing synth knobs.
