The ultimate carrierwave.....

Posted by lars christensen on October 29, 2014 at 2:26pm 4 Comments

Due to certain events back in time, some early childhood experiences, i developed a very fine tuned ability to detect sounds. The quality and texture of breathing. The sound of the doorknob being turned, revealed to me the mood and the amount of possible danger arriving accompanying the person turning the knob. And hours spent in solitude in a dark basement awakened my consciousness of things, non physical but non the less very much alive, at least in my mind and imagination. For years i had this very unpleasant experience of someone or something behind me, breathing heavily right behind my ears. And no matter how fast i turned my head, i never managed to catch a glimpse of who, what or how. One of my favorite strategies of staying sane and getting a grip of my self, was humming. And rocking or swaying my body. Creating a small universe of my own, protected and shielded by my steady attention on the humming and the movement, my mind would become more end more introvert pushing reality in to the background. Mesmerizing my lost child in to the soothing and familiar zone between awake and sleep. In this zone i was the king. Any entity or unpleasant image showing up would be sensored and changed to the better, directed by my imagination. No need to say that this kind of behaviour had to be a well kept secret, for no one to see. It was mine, my sacred palace of self. And when danger appeared or circumstances turned chaotic i would silently hum in my inner ear and feel a subtle swaying in the core of my body, staying safe and isolated from the turmoil. Even now, 50 years later i still do that. Hum and sway, gently and subtle. And it still carries me to this place in my mind where the colours are bright and the shapes and forms of things pliable and changeable.

The mid-week blues got you flat-lining. Then it's time to press your ears up against some comforting music. This weeks featured artist is from Tipperary, Ireland. His name is Cóemgín Cùil. It is his first release on Bandcamp and is an impressive one at that.

His descriptive tags say Ambient, Dark Ambient, Experimental Ambient.

After a listen I sense a fairly light darkness, spooky maybe, and with plenty of mystery, even wonder.

But you listen and decide...

Enjoy!

Bandcamp streaming ?

Posted by Igneous Flame on October 29, 2014 at 3:52am 15 Comments

As I understand it, people can use Bandcamp to stream anything thats up there as long as they have an internet connection ? I see there's a bandcamp App as well, which presumably does the same.

So, if this is correct, then people don't need to buy anything there, just use it as a 'radio' in effect and the artists get nothing from this - which is worse than Spotify's model (?)

Is this why artists are just making montages or selected tracks available on their pages ?

Was actually a pretty nice out this evening, considering it was on the edge of November here in the North-East. I caught a glimpse of the moon coming in and out of some high clouds and decided to take a shot of it.

Ended up getting this!

No, not the car in the driveway! No, not the streaking of a passing automobile!

This...

No, not the neighbor's car in their driveway! No, not the fake Halloween pumpkin in my neighbor's window!

This!...

Yes, this. The Christmas lights. The Christmas lights in October.

Did they pt them up early, you ask.

Nope, been up there for two years and counting.

So when I look out my front picture window at night I see that!

But seriously, I was out to get a shot of the moon! The lights just got in the way.…

"Nevermore" project brief/call for ambient tracks for release

Posted by Rebekkah Hilgraves on October 28, 2014 at 6:00pm 0 Comments

RadHaus US (the studio's label) has begun a new project that we're calling Nevermore, which has turned into a surprisingly large and well received undertaking!

It starts with a field recording. The raw recording is somewhat crude, as you might expect; I only had my phone to do it at that time. The crows around here -- ravens, really -- don't just "CAW", they have this interesting percussive purr, and I recorded some of it, along with some other sounds: A dog barking, a distant train, etc.

The brief is this: use those sounds, and the other stuff in the folder attached here, to build an ambient track. I read "The Raven" and also recorded some very short vocal stems, but you don't have to use everything.

The only real requirement is that it's not TOO dark, as this audience tends toward the lighter side. Some dark is okay, of course, given the subject matter. Just don’t make me want to open my veins during the review process or broadcast. ;-)

Also, because RadHaus is positioning itself as an audiophile label, we'll want pretty high-resolution files for your stereo mix down (minimum 44100 Hz sample rate--preferably 96000--24-bit AIFF or FLAC), and feel free to play with "spaces" in your mix.

There's been enough interest that two things might happen:

  1. It is likely to spill over into a second show (the first one is scheduled for 15 November) and
  2. I'd love to release this on the new RadHaus audiophile label if you're interested, as part of a series.

The field recordings are the two "Dog Days" files and "Sunday Afternoon" and you don't have to use everything. The rest are tiny sung stems and my reading of Poe's "The Raven". The stems VOX 01-05 can work together or not as you wish. Use what you want, leave what you don't. Please don't delete the files, as others are using them.

The final track can be anything up to an hour in length. Please let me know ASAP if you can commit to doing the 15…
