New DAW

I've been thinking for a while that I need a new paintbox and now the deed is done. The combination of a trusted recommendation from a pro, a look around the demo and the current time-limited price for the entry level version made it a no-brainer.…See More

    I've been thinking for a while that I need a new paintbox and now the deed is done. The combination of a trusted recommendation from a pro, a look around the demo and the current time-limited price for the entry level version made it a no-brainer. So, hello ProSonus Studio One Artist - fully featured DAW with 2.5Gb of content plus Native Instruments Guitar Rig/Kontakt/Reaktor with another 2.5Gb thrown in, for a few pence short of £17! I think this could be the start of a beautiful friendship, once we've clambered up the learning curve together :)

    This weekend I am backing up to 2011, to an album by a artist "Bubble" (aka John Sobocan) out of Toronto, Ontario. His music hits the spot when it come to finding the "still-point," the point where being the music and being is one. This release may not be the "epitome" of what I describe above, but it is a favorite of his earlier work.

    Total Time: Aprox. 67 min

    Bubble's collection can be found on Bandcamp here.

    ENJOY!

    TODAY: Relaxing with Machinery on At Water's Edge

    Posted by Rebekkah Hilgraves on January 24, 2015 at 12:49pm 0 Comments

    Music from Relaxed Machinery this week on At Water's Edge. We get a sneak preview of a new album from Broken Harbour (Blake Gibson and Robert Davies) called "Quiraing". It's scheduled for release on 25 January, so if you tune in to At Water's Edge, you'll get to hear it early!

    We also hear Frore's brand new release "Cyclic Movement", which had its official on the 23rd (only the day before this edition of At Water's Edge).

    We'll be hearing some excellent recent tracks from Steve Brand and Roy Mattson to round out the program.

    My review of "Broadcast" CD by Spuntic

    Posted by Richard Gürtler on January 24, 2015 at 12:38pm 0 Comments

    Databloem's Dennis Knopper is always very good in bringing into the map some new unknown names and Spuntic is certainly no exception in these adventurous explorations. Mehdi Saleh aka IX, the driving force behind Spuntic, is an Iranian soundscaper, based in Tehran, who belongs to the leading forces of the growing electronic scene in this country. Actually, although Spuntic has released so far several albums, mostly on Portuguese netlabel Enough Records, I believe Mehdi is rather known for his dark ambient infused project Alphaxone. But back to Spuntic, "Broadcast" was released during May 2014 in traditionally tasteful Databloem's digifile packaging with exceptional design wizardry by Theo Rabou. Let's ignite this 68-minute transmission now...



    "Alternate" transports straightly into nocturnal rainy street with circling texture bridging enigmatic layers with smoothly soaring swells. At times slightly piercing, yet hauntingly percolating. Gorgeously cinematic fragments quietly sneak in and continuously undulate throughout. Organic, surreptitious, exquisite... A very strong introduction by Spuntic. "Piramoun (Interlude)" dives slowly into desolate drone reverberations, reaching nearly unfathomable depths and then astonishingly transmuting through soothing acoustics of the environment into gracefully expansive skylines. Thrillingly transporting odyssey awaits here!!! But the journey continues with "Hybrid Snow", which should be cold, but the distant spirals of sky high choir drones are uniquely warm, masterfully counterpointed with extremely polished and utterly magnetising hissy/glitchy blankets and delicately piercing cybernetic subtleties. Deeply mesmerizing and spectacularly embracing composition, bravo Mehdi, to me, certainly an Ambient Hall of Fame piece!!! "Erosion" is…

    It's a sad day for the Electronic Music Community. Edgar Froese, founder of Tangerine Dream, has passed away, at age 70.  TD is and was among the most major influences in my own electronic music career. Rest in peace, Edgar.
