a community supporting ambient music, art, poetry, photography, games and more
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...

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

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:
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…Continue
