Posted by Scott Lawlor on April 18, 2014 at 2:28pm 0 Comments

Hello.

I am honored to have a new dark ambient release on the Aural Films label for your listening pleasure.

 

I'd like to thank Jack Hertz for releasing this one.

 

Here is the information about the album followed by the download link.

 

This album is not for the timid, you have been warned.



Aural Films is thrilled to bring you a new release titled "The Madness that Lurks Within" by Scott Lawlor & Rebekkah Hilgraves. This dark ambient concept album inspired by a documentary on the Russian Sleep Experiment story. Joins the sonic forces of Scott's dronescapes with the engaging voice of Rebekkah Hilgraves to take us on a darkly exotic journey into extreme horror.



Scott describes how the album came about:



This dark ambient concept album was inspired by something that my son showed me on youtube called the Russian sleep experiment. …

On this show, I continued the month-long focus on Steve Roach. The Featured CD at Midnight was disc three from the 30th anniversary reissue of "Structures from Silence" on Projekt Records. I also played music by AirSculpture, appearing at The Gatherings in May.

Hello FM, My Old Friend!

There is nothing cooler than coming home from work to find a shipping box on your doorstep containing a new synthesizer.  A few weeks ago I acquired a used Yamaha DX27 off of Ebay and after much anticipation, it finally arrived! Excitedly, I removed the keyboard from loads of balled-up plastic Walmart bags that were padding it in the box.  Gradually, as it came out of the box, I could make out the familiar dark brown casing and deep green buttons, so classic with these 1980’s synths.  After a quick headphone test and a few slick snapshots of it for Facebook, I happily toted it downstairs to the studio and plugged it into the speakers.  My face lit up! There it was! That classic digital sound I had been missing! The sound of FM synthesis! So where had this old friend been for so long? To see that, we need to take a history lesson, a lesson in the changing tastes of electronic sound.

 

If you are not familiar, FM, or Frequency Modulation Synthesis, is a digital technique used in synthesizers, most notably in Yamaha’s DX line from the 1980’s.  If that sounds tech-geeky unfamiliar to you, don’t worry! It’s the sounds of FM that will be familiar.  Perhaps you would recognize FM from countless cocktail piano sounds that made the Yamaha DX7 Famous, or chunky digi-bass sounds that drove…

  • Steve Roach in the Timeroom, circa 1982.

In last week’s issue, we spoke with ambient composer Steve Roach about the 30th anniversary of his landmark album Structures from Silence.Originally issued in DIY fashion on cassette by Roach himself, the three-song suite quickly gained notice. On April 15th, the album sees deluxe treatment courtesy Projekt Records. In addition to a clarity-enriching remastering job, the new edition features 2012 and ‘13 recordings by Roach that find him exploring theStructures sound and style from his Timeroom studio in the Sonoran desert south of Tucson.We ended up with more material than we could fit into the feature, so enjoy this extended Q&A with Roach and a sneak peek at his next project.

wow, am I getting lazy, posting favorite songs that begin with whatever the letter is?

 

Maybe, but some days are just like that.  So with no further introduction, here are some favorite songs by artists that begin with the 14th letter of the alphabet.

 

Nina Gordon - Tonight And The Rest Of My Life (from the cd of the same name)

When I first heard this song around the turn of the 21st century, I thought, for some strange reason, that it was a ballad by Madonna.  it took me a while to figure out who this was but it's a great track.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z29Wq7vWKDI

 

Nurse with Wound - Close to you (from their cd The Surveillance Lounge)

This is a pretty spooky track, listen in the dark at your own peril.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ihcKHYN7pE

 

Natalie Grant - Held.

This is one of those songs that makes me want to cry every time I hear it. …

This is one of those songs that makes me want to cry every time I hear it.  That's not an easy task and I'm not sure why this song always makes me sad.  It's still a great track.
