My review of "Invisible" CD by Steve Roach

Posted by Richard Gürtler on April 26, 2015 at 9:30am 0 Comments

Steve Roach, the genius ambient soundforger, is known for his numerous legendary long-form releases. "Invisible", released though his Timeroom Editions imprint at February 13th, is the latest one, if I count physical editions only, released just in time before Steve Roach's two live shows at the Galactic Center in Tucson, Arizona at February 13th & 14th. Originally, a slightly shorter, 58 minutes long version was released at 2015 New Year's Day as a New Year's gift for all Steve's dedicated journeyers. The CD was released in limited edition of 300 copies, while the first 100 copies were signed and hand numbered by the artist, but it quickly sold out.



Created during the last cold and rainy days of 2014 over the Timeroom, the journey quickly dives into fascinatingly unfolding euphonious soundfields exquisitely displaying Steve's window and patio views of shadowy, gently sloping Rio Rico terrains guarded by Mount Shibell and immersed by breathtakingly dramatic cloud formations. Deepest sonic meditation has just begun!!! Aural bliss unfathomably invades my listening room, The Dream Alive memories from February 15th awake, while heading for the Timeroom with Steve and the tribe, we are approaching this cloudscaping rainy spectacle, this must be the call of the Timeroom's magic!!! Precisely layered and traversed, melting meticulously the very best of ambient and dark ambient billows with perplexingly ear-tickling fragments and ghostly groans continuously permeating through this massively embracing stratum, while strikingly intangible tribal groove rides atop, giving extra workout to my speakers. There is no way to escape, so all you can do is to connect profoundly to the wizard's sanctum, close your yes and let his intense and monumental earmarks reveal all its magic,…

Let's talk about Ello and Chat

Posted by John K-N on April 24, 2015 at 10:33am 0 Comments

Ello is great, but it's not like here at rM.

Due to Ello not being fully built yet - there are issues.  

The biggest one is @elloambient is not someplace you can just post to automatically.  You have to post on your own page, and then I repost it.   If you end your post with " @elloambient " that's my trigger to repost it.  

The great news is - very shortly - all comments to your post where directly on your post, or on the repost I do in @elloambient or if @ellomusic or someone else reposts your post...  all the comments flow back to your original post... so a conversation can start.

The other big issue with Ello is the same one we have here - things disappear fast.  I will be doing there what I've done here...  post summaries.  

Ello has a number of tools coming to fix some of the issues of finding older posts... a better search, tagging, and liking type features. So far they've shown to have some really good ideas come to reality in ways I didn't expect - so... hang on.
