Divinations Review and Album Feature

Posted by eyes cast down on March 2, 2015 at 10:07pm 0 Comments

Much gratitude to John Shanahan (Hypnagogue) for his enthusiastic review of my Divinations album, and to Brian at Our Place Radio for featuring the album on Feb. 25. Reaching such kindred spirits makes releasing the music all the more rewarding!

John says:

eyes cast down speaks in a quietly assured voice on Divinations, a suite of five pieces designed to be used for "inner work, healing and relaxation." It's something of a self-compilation, the first four tracks having previously appeared on multi-artist albums on the Free Floating netlabel and the last a recording of a live set composer Greg Moorcroft performed in 2012 and augmented in post-production in 2014. They come together here in a very pleasant, seamless and utterly relaxing flow. There's no need to turn down the volume; Moorcroft's pieces are naturally quiet, patiently carved in long, hushed pads and drones. His gossamer layers sit lightly atop one another, and even his most complex mixes of sound or percolations of texture land as more than a calm ripple. Which is wonderful. "Exquisite Divination of Patterns" sets the overall tone straight away with slowly circling ambient whispers, lightly Dopplered and paired against gentle keyboard notes. Moorcroft notes that this track marks his first use of soft synths. You'd never know, and you wouldn't care; it's enough to get carried off by the current of sound. And once you're in it, you'll stay there for the full voyage. Through the soft surroundings of "Crystalline" and on into "Radiant Perception." This is where Moorcroft gets his "loudest" and the sound reaches its most active point. The sound here pulses, sounding a bit like a bowed instrument in spots. It's got an interesting, almost hollow metallic…

DeepWarmth - Nature 2 (Ambient, Drone, Techno)

Posted by James Shain on March 2, 2015 at 3:30pm 0 Comments

Edit from John K-N - I can't get embeds to work at the moment - apologies to James! - click here:

http://runonrecordings.bandcamp.com/album/nature-2

The first of 3 Cd releases of 2015 is coming out this Monday. Being released by Run On Recordings as a limited 100 copy Cd run + Digital, Nature 2 continues the Nature series with more Drones melded with beatwork. This time around 3 of the tracks have a more upbeat techno-ish beat to them, while still focusing on the Ambient sounds and ending with 2 very Ambient leaning tracks. The official post for the album includes a preview mix of the 5 tracks. This is a series that I'm quite proud of. That I could take an experiment and actually create more in the style when I thought I never would again.

Tracklist:

01 - Sunrise

02 - Trees

03 - Warmth

04 - Clouds

05 - Caves

What's been playing lately?

Update: 3/2/15

It's all Mr. Roach this time, as I finally got to make the pilgrimage to Tucson to imbibe the Live Event, Feb. 13-14. Report to follow but, in brief, if you haven't experienced Steve live, in the moment, you're seriously missing out. He's already booked three shows next Feb. at the same venue, Solar Culture, as well as the Gathering, Sep. 12 in Philadelphia. Be there, or be a four-sided right-angled equilateral polygon...

Steve Roach. Destination Beyond. All is Now. Invisible. Bloodmoon Rising. Dynamic Stillness. A Deeper Silence. Future Flows. Sigh of Ages. Soul Tones. Light Fantastic. Artifacts. The Delicate Forever. Back to Life.

Update: 2/11/15

Let's start with the epic...

vidnaObmana. Opera for Four Fusion Works: I: Echoes of Steel (w/Dreams in Exile); II: Phrasing the Air (w/Bill Fox); III: Reflection on Scale (w/Kenneth Kirschner); IV: The Bowing Harmony (w/Steven Wilson). Wow. Dirk Serries wrapped the 22-year vidnaObmana project with two majestic works: the visceral, gut-wrenching Dante Trilogy, and this 4-CD recycling tour-de-force. Working with acoustic guitar, soprano sax, piano and voice, Serries creates magic throughout, with more highlights than there’s room to mention here. Sometimes, it’s pushing the experimental ethos about as far as I can listen (which would be nothing for a lot of folks), but never gets too weird (subjective, again).

Stephan Micus. Panagia. A major discovery, at long last! Panagia is Stephan’s 20th ECM album in his 60th year. All acoustic instruments (mostly plucked strings and bells) and Stephan’s voices; nothing electronic. And all sacred music. Not to be missed! Since he lives…

Hello. Here are a couple of new excerpts of long form tracks that will probably be released later this year, a lesson in opposites so-to-speak. http://soundcloud.com/sklawlor/ethereal-ambience
