David Sylvian - September

"Apart from creating one of the best instrumentral ambient albums ever - 'Gone to Earth', this feller is a consumate songwriter (when he's on form). Such talent."

My review of "Intention" CD by Byron Metcalf & Mark Seelig

Posted by Richard Gürtler on August 31, 2014 at 3:00am 0 Comments

Virtuoso drummer and shamanic powerhouse, Byron Metcalf, and bansuri player and throat singer, Mark Seelig, both certified transpersonal therapists, joined their spiritedly galvanizing forces on "Intention" album, which was released at the end of April 2014 on Projekt. Jaw-dropping cover art by Kancano of deviantART gang and additional graphic design by Sam Rosenthal make from this 4-panel digipak a pure visual bliss!!! Let's fire the journey...

The title track "Intention", the longest one on this album, goes just over 22 and half minute mark and unfolds this powerfully creative sound wizardry with rather slower, but utterly mindscaping medicine bridging Byron's mesmerizingly passionate hand drumming with Mark's mysterious overtone voice magic hovering above and bansuri flute delicacies. Kindred spirit, didgeridoo par excellence player Dashmesh Khalsa (known from celebrated works such as "Dream Tracker" or "Live At SoundQuest Fest") delivers on the stage his immense talent as well. Primordial languages of these shamans are precisely dissolved into a highly ecstatic amalgamate curing the listener's body and mind. You simply can't go wrong with such line up, so the gates to the tribal-trance paradise are unlocked, enter now!!! "Surrender" kicks with much more vibrant palette of drumming, while Mark's throat singing is still safely riding atop. But the artistry of Byron's volcanic drumming can't be stopped, so Mark levels the tension with his overtone turmoil. Emerging spasmodic didge barks are provided this time by another world-class ace of this instrument, Rob Thomas of Inlakesh. A truly thunderous performance and a serious workout for your speakers!!! Feel the heat, feel the beat!!! "Encounter", with 16 minutes the second longest track, slows down the tempo a bit, at least…

Of Rime and Reason by Tim Kays

Posted by Jack Hertz on August 30, 2014 at 10:00am 0 Comments

Aural Films welcomes the return of artist Tim Kays with a new album titled "Of Rime and Reason." A collection of works inspired by something that is near and dear to us at Aural Films, the weather. In this release, Tim draws on his meteorological expertise to conjure evocative sounds-capes based on the concept know as "Rime," A type of ice formation, similar to hoarfrost, that results from a mixture of wintertime temperatures and fog conditions. Produces microscopic ice crystals that shatter to make a snow like effect when warmed by sunlight. "Of Rime and Reason" by Tim Kays will be available on Saturday August 30, 2014. Download the album now at https://auralfilms.bandcamp.com/album/of-rime-and-reason

Cloudwalk Website

Posted by Cloudwalk on August 30, 2014 at 8:52am 2 Comments

I finally finished creating the official Cloudwalk website! I had a lot of fun putting it together.

I'd like to invite you to check it out:


I'm using a Wix.com free account, and I was really impressed by how much I could feature on the site.  The only drawback I can see is that the URL is a little weird.  Their pro account allows you to license a simpler domain name, but this works just fine for what I am doing.

I've never done any type of website development at all, but I found that if you are at least familiar with embedding things like Bandcamp and Soundcloud material, you can get some great interactive music elements.

I'll be expanding it quite a bit in the future, but I wanted a nice basic page to start with.

My review of "A Perfect Gradient Sky" CD by The Eclipse Project

Posted by Richard Gürtler on August 30, 2014 at 2:09am 3 Comments

The chief protagonist hidden behind The Eclipse Project is Beau Lukes, in Toronto based hand-percussionist, didgeridoo player, electronic music composer and a graduate of Madison Media Institute. I firstly came across this multi instrumentalist on a highly applauded album "Music For Spaceports" by Eric Hopper's Sylken ensemble (released in May 2014). Beau Lukes appeared on two unforgettable tracks "Dreamship" and "Starsong", so I immediately started to search more about this crafted musician. At that time The Eclipse Project was already in full bloom and "A Perfect Gradient Sky" album was in the pipeline already. The Eclipse Project features talented collective of artists and "A Perfect Gradient Sky" is a debut album, released in May 2014 as a self-release by Beau Lukes, who is also responsible for the graphic design of this elegant 4-panel digipak (with additional landscape photos by Larry J. Herscovitch). The album is inspired by the geological wonders of the Scarborough Bluffs, which stretch for about 15 km along the Lake Ontario shore.

Tranquil sounds of water flowing announce the opening piece "Who Taught The Birds To Sing", but soon spoken words by Gary James aka Black Bear step in together with catchy children voices, all surrounded by warmly inviting vistas of synths, exquisite strings and field recordings. Later on gorgeously embracing native chanting with hauntingly expansive flute and subtle tribal drumming sneak in for a truly expressive prayerscape. This composition is filled with stunningly efficient harmony between the affinity of primordial and modern, a timeless world of aural pleasure awaits here!!! Bullroarer awakes the next ceremony, "Red Rock Dawn", but it's the rich palette of didgeridoo magic that quickly steals the show, accompanied by vague…

My latest release available at https://roymattson.bandcamp.com/album/ceaseless.
A rhythmic and atmospheric journey through transitional and steady zones. Driving ecstatic hypno-beats, stratospheric ambiences, mellow punctuations, drawn out fluid pulses, cloud-like expanses and misty drifts all play out in this musical excursion that reflects the ceaseless and incessant force of life.
