  1. Mind over MIDI - Offgrid (Album) (💿) Offgrid by Mind over MIDI Release date: 22th July 2022 Format: CD, Digital I'm fascinated by TV shows like Mountain Men, The Last Alaskans, Alaska the Last Frontier a.o. They are masters of independence and living offgrid and off the land. This album is dedicated to the men who make their living off the land - hunting, fishing and trapping to put food on the table. For Mountain Men, survival is predicated on using ancient skills perfected over hundreds of years. If you can picture the very furthest, coldest, darkest part of Norway, that’s where Mind over MIDI resides. If you want to get an idea of what it’s like there, and can do without the frostbite, then this is the perfect solution.

  2. Lorenzo Montanà - Aural (Album) (💿) Aural by Lorenzo Montanà Release date: 22th July 2022 Format: CD, Digital Aural is a latent sound vision, which manifests itself with the contrast of minimal geometric structures, apparently devoid of life, inserted in an arid nature without borders. A surreal mind journey into a dimension made up of elaborate acoustic elements and a deep electronics imbued with sound design. Lorenzo Montanà is an Italian soundtrack composer, sound engineer and producer. Started in the 90s producing & arranging more than 40 albums across the electronic, ambient, IDM, jazz, classical and rock genres. He released his first solo album (Black Ivy, 2009) and the 5-CD Labyrinth collaboration series with Pete Namlook on the label FAX +49-69/450464. His work as soundtrack composer landed in the trailer of The Hunger Games 1 & 2 (which won an Award as the best original music trailer for 2012), Blade Runner 2049, Coriolanus and more. Lorenzo develops the most visual aspect of ambient, trying to translate real emotions and sensations through sounds and melodies. Copyright © 2022 ROHS! RECORDS, All Rights Reserved

  4. https://lontanoseries.bandcamp.com/album/colla-double-album This is how my dream world should sound.. - Carlo Giustini Imagine waking up in the middle of the night, looking outside the window and noticing that something has actually changed. The world is still there, it sleeps but it is present, mocking you constantly and slowly showing itself . Anyway now something seems to cover reality with a thin layer of bright glue, an ambiguous material that hides the features of things and that unfolds the world under a different, bright light. You walk, this concrete is soft, the walls of the houses are covered with morbid, viscous, beautiful materia. This world speaks to you, it tells you a different story. You could stay here forever and forget an imposed, harsh past. In this new vision, however, the past coexists, it lives and it embraces you, forever wrapped in a flaming rodeo loop. A giant puppet show put up by family and friends. “Colla” is a metaphor, a hope for a different dimension, where thought generates tangible content without too much effort. The streets of Sant’Angelo are now populated by salt cats, pink powder, brass concerts, acousmatic voices without a source. The toxic dust of my city is now fog that melts eternally and will never return. This album was recorded with precarious instruments: a hissing behringer mixer a partially burnt Korg Poly 800 An old Taya tape deck The cheapest guitar pedals A philips microcassette recorder All of this to obtain a completely imperfect, fragile sound, muffled and worn.
  5. Each track was inspired by the experience of the landscapes connecting the body and displacing it into a sound. Track1: La Paz (Bolivia) Track2: Eduardo Avarua Andean National Reserve (Bolivia) Track3: Machu Picchu (Peru) Track4: Buenos Aires (Argentina) Track5: Atacama Desert (Chile) Track6: São Paulo (Brazil) Tatsuro Murakami is a guitarist and composer, based in Tokyo and São Paulo. Since 2014 he has been studying the roots of Brazilian popular music from Choro and 7-string classic guitar. Besides ambient music, he works with soundtracks for movies, art installations, and his own creations on sound art. (tatsuromurakami.com)
  6. "One day, my piano (a nice upright Feurich made in Langlau in 1984) was opened because the hammers had to be repaired. The strings were visible and the cylinder was removed. Like this, the piano looked like a boneless animal with his skin removed. Like the Beef Skinned from Soutine, or an anatomic picture from Vesale. I started tapping on the strings, on the wood case, scratching the keys and the strings, to bring life back to this carcass. It was the beginning of the first track, L’allégorie de la Carcasse. This album is like a reconquest of the keyboards and a tribute as well. Synthesizers, piano, pump organ and even the computer keyboard, are the principal source of the tracks. I tried to keep a pleasure of playing, of improvising, in the spirit of jazz music which I love. I used other instruments and objects, like shakuhachi and turntable. However, the composition process needs to go back and forth between instruments and computer, analogic and digital, improvisation and editing. Sometimes, the computer and the machines makes you do things that you didn’t expect. It’s the life of the music and the creation. And it’s the dimension that I want to keep with Véhicule: not a dogmatic way of composing, but just a journey, always surprising, in the sounds.."
  7. Based entirely of tape loops and microcassette recordings, "Vuoto a perdere" could be the follow-up to "Music From A Sinking World" album released in 2021. "Vuoto a perdere" consists of 9 tracks all composed taking as inspiration and sound source the 1938 ballet "Billy The Kid by Aaron Copland". It is a warm steam, marked by bright, distant and delicate harmonies, what radiates, rarefied and enveloping matter that gradually evolves following a slow and light path of ambient sounds.

  8. "Nebel lang" (german) is the mix of "fog" and "lifelong", which turns metaphorically into "lifelong uncertainty". As the name implies, it is an exploration of the concept of time and the unforeseen. The organic, the living, the changes. The Nebel lang sound is based on environmental piano improvisations. - - don't run, walk — don't walk, stop — stand motionless where you are — where are you? — no, dispense with the maps & compasses & lexicons — speak no name, see: the glowing slant of late sunlight against skin & skyline & shadow interposed between — hear the concrete roar & buzz — hear beneath that a slower pulse, slower — no, slower still, the diastole & systole of soil, of mountain & moss — all the forgotten rituals of dying & birth — feel the warm air, ruachhovering, surrounding & entering your animal body, gravity's tactile desire tugging at your blood — lower the eyelids, unweave the grammar that binds I to window, to aspen, to cloud, to riverflow, to memory drifting, drifting off, dispersed to dream & further past the horizon of deepest sleep, past all unknowing, to the break of day the slumbering earth stirred awake to breathe her first breath, beginning (Poem by Michael Iona)
  9. Highly recommended to fans of BVDUB & IDM genre. Cat.#: ROHS!035CD Release date: 20/01/2022 Format: CD, Digital The essence of ambient music is not the absence of movement, but movement that takes place on another, more interior, introspective level, a sort of fluctuation without movement, a travel while remaining still, a dance without movement. The dynamism of the musical components is a motion that does not necessarily require a moving body: it moves flows, displaces molecules, opens up spaces. Haze traces an emotional path that moves on two planes that intersect and emerge from each other: a drones base built with a simple synthesis starting from a basic waveform with a cascading filter. A sound that tends to grow and incorporate veins of noise created with techniques not far from certain shoegaze; and a part made up of compositional textures, vocal elements and sequences of notes that can sometimes include aleatory components. Much of the source material is experiments or unfinished tracks produced many years ago, when the Molven sound was much more IDM-oriented, as in SAF2013, a track made in 2013 and never released, remixed and included as a sort of callback to the origins. molven.org Pseudonym of Mario Marino, creator and curator of numerous projects and musical events that fuelled the electronic scene in Veneto in the early 90s, linked to the historic radio programme Red Planet. The same name was used at the time as a collective name for DJs to identify a certain ambient-techno sound, that of the so-called chill-out zones. In 2004 he founded the ambient label Laverna.net and, under the pseudonym matera electronics (later molven), he created some productions in which rarefied and introspective sounds coexist with sequences and rhythmic articulations typical of certain IDM electronics. In the latest productions the sound becomes deeper and more dilated, moving into ambient-drone territories, with vocal elements and noise veins.
  10. for fans of tape loops music and of course William Basinski
  11. Duenn (Fukuoka, Japan) is an electronic musician and composer producing minimal works, using a minimum of equipment. Through collaborations with other artists, both sonic and visual, Duenn seeks an expansion of self. In 2017, Duenn formed the experimental collaborative unit 3RENSA with Merzbow and Nyantora. Duenn co-hosted the ambient event “Hardcore Ambience” with Nyantora.
  12. Text from the artist: These pieces are inspired by my dream world of images and sounds, in which things, that are impossible in rational reality, appear to me as natural. The image of a blue-violet coloured plastic manta ray, suspended in the air in a fluid and futuristic perpetual motion on the terrace of my house, gives the piece ‘Manta di Plastica’ its name. A boy comes up to me, hugs me from the back and says, shall we jump? We have a parachute. We dive from some height, we fall, I watch the world from above, I feel calm. We land in the water and I let myself go completely, I come down, I'm underwater, and from there I look at the sky, from the bottom upwards, it's beautiful, far away, full of clouds. He says: “stay with me”. He pulls me out of the water and in that moment I wake up. This dream gives name to the piece ‘Sogno Paracadute’ which means parachute dream. ‘Flora Aliena’ means alien flora, and it refers to the idea of contamination. A place has a native flora and when we plant a seed of a non-native plant, it is as if we infect the land forever. I see a parallelism of this dynamic also in my way of creating. My rational world is a territory that is constantly being seeded by impossible, utopian, imaginary, dreamlike, magical realities, so much so that I sometimes ask myself what is really real.
  13. Andrea Porcu - The Healing Power Of The Moog Inspired by the "The Healing Forces of Music: History, Theory, and Practice" Book by Randall McClellan.
  14. Michele Andreotti "Stanotte" Stanotte is an evocation of fleeting images, lights and sounds lasting a moment that remains indelible in the memory. Their brevity and lack of content make them turn into perceptive impulses, which are linked to the senses as a complex whole of sensory interpenetrations. The sounds of nature, the voices and the colors of the instrumental timbres are like "field recordings" of the unconscious collected over time in an unexpected and spontaneous way, tangible and mixed with an emotional charge deriving from the nostalgia for a moment of joy and peace in the past. The absence of a horizontal structural evolution of the pieces pushes us to look from the inside of a memory, without however losing the sensation of a fleeting and volatile moment of unitary duration.

  15. Such a great album based on Mahler's "Ruhevoll (Poco adagio)" Symphonie n.4 For fans of William Basinski
  16. Music For Sleep / Andrea Porcu - The Heavenly Life Source of "The Heavenly Life" comes from "Ruhevoll (Poco adagio)" Symphonie n.4 by Gustav Mahler. Reinterpretation, tape loops processing and imperfections by Andrea Porcu (Music For Sleep). Recorded in Sardinia (Italy), February 2021.
  17. Andrea Porcu (Music For Sleep project) - New Values "In recent years, Andrea Porcu has been responsible for some of the most immersive, slowly unfurling ambient music around - much of it inspired by a combination of much-needed musical escapism and a desire to create music that would aid self-meditation. New Values, his latest longform piece, arrives with little or no explanation, other than a simple sentence about "listening to the essence of fading light". Beginning with the dull tones of tape hiss and a distant electric piano, the 46-minute piece quietly builds in waves, introducing long, lingering chords and drifting electronic motifs to accompany Porcu's fluid, slow-motion keys. It feels like lazy, languid music for similarly stunning, drawn-out sunsets, with all the warmth and comfort of a soft-touch blanket. In a word: stunning.."
