"A new album of emotive ambient/repetitive/synth/drone music bein made with the Buchla Music Easel and some effects pedals. No overdubs, no looping, just honest recordings of live performances.

 

Releases 18 September 2015"

 

The 2 previewed tracks are beautiful, "Moment after moment" especially. LP pre-ordered.

Agreed. Too bad its digital release is postponed by a week. I can't wait to hear the whole record.

So I keep on listening to Love From Dust instead (fantastic album as well).

It's out today, and it's excellent listening. I wish I hadn't played the first couple tracks to death over the past few weeks but the rest of the album is even better anyways. Sometimes the preview tracks are the best from an album, this is a rare occurrence when they actually are not. Loving his work this afternoon.

Some of the finest (ambient) music I've heard in years. I especially enjoy the fact it's melody/synth driven yet minimalistic and to the point, without any useless arpeggios or anything like that.

Enso is the perfect finale, echoing the breath-taking Moment after moment.

Fantastic album, really.

      Romance was that unknown entity I posted on here back at the tail end of last year with that tape of fantastical FM pads, syrupy OPN vibes and Basinski decayed ambience that sold out in 1 hour on Boomkat.
      This is a full length collaboration that taps into Caretaker, Stars Of The Lid and GAS.

      Sup watmm? I decided to throw a new ambient/drone mix together as a succesor to the one I made a while back. This one was a lot of fun to put together as I really had to focus on textures and such to make the layered transitions seamless without sounding awkward. I think it turned out really well, so have a listen and enjoy.

      Vinyl and CD reissue coming in June this year on Mille Plateaux. Has remained a staple part of my listening habits since I first picked up the re-release back in 2004.

      Haven't seen it on the their Bandcamp: https://forceincmilleplateaux.bandcamp.com/ but it's up for pre-order in the usual places.

      Album entirely recorded using archaic recording devices. 
      Any thoughts?

      I would like to share with you, beautiful people, my very first album release: "ReconoɔǝЯ".
       
      The following is an attempt at creating a “palindromic” record, meaning that it can be listened to from both sides: “(..) an attempt to materialize the backs and forths of life (…) It is music without a starting corner, but it takes the idea of a corner and turns it into a circle. The idea of the beginning being repeated at the end and the end at the beginning…”.
       
      Entirely recorded using archaic recording devices, such as Sony TC250, Fostex X18, Walkmans, among them.
       
      Hope you guys enjoy it. Love you all ♥
