Just saying 'Hey'

I haven't posted anything in a while. I am working my way up to chat, which might seem weird. I'm kinda weird. Yeah, I'm sort of a recluse. I try not to put it out there often, but I get nervous around other artists or in general talking about art.…See More

I haven't posted anything in a while. I am working my way up to chat, which might seem weird. I'm kinda weird. Yeah, I'm sort of a recluse. I try not to put it out there often, but I get nervous around other artists or in general talking about art. I'm a savant..if you wanna put idiot before that word as it usually is..hopefully not derogatory interpretation. 

I am looking toward ambient; definitely juggling, between the live Techno, visuals, and I was supposed to be making videos way back. I write weird esoteric stuff. Some, I think, misunderstand it. Being raised in a strict fundamentalist home, I think they'll take it as attack on their religion or something. Inadvertently, it might just because I'm vehemently not into the hierarchical system my abuses stemmed from. Very patriarchal. So, I'm really an all things femme divine oriented soul. Like, I just did a track called Arianrhod. I think I drive listeners crazy a bit because many are either World Soul by default or they feel I'm not anchored and sling them around culture to culture or archetype to very extremely different archetype. I like listening to Terence McKenna but really DISagree [oops edit] "culture is not your friend". I guess it depends how interpreted..? There is Culture and then there is deeply ingrained dislikes, but I do differentiate ego limitations from infancy versus appreciation of diversity and getting to do new, weird stuff that otherwise isn't in the scope of our norms about what society or the Art even is or can be. 

haha..I just signed on to post something cool. A pic or art I liked, since it had been a while. Hope everyone is doing great and making mad, beautiful symphonies and concert performances. Or, if not, obstacles kicked out of your way. Do it up!

An art [not my work] from back on my hard drive. Persephone and Demeter..? That's what my file said. Happy weekend, all here. …

Relaxing ambient music created w/ Strymon BIG SKY reverb + Novation Supernova 2 synth

Posted by synth4ever on April 18, 2015 at 3:16pm 1 Comment

Hi all, wanted to share my first ambient music created with Strymon BIG SKY reverb pedal (combined with a Novation Supernova II synth).

Titled "And The Angels Cried", it's a slowly evolving ambient space music piece. The SN2 provides the melodies via arpeggiator and filter/envelope adjustments, while the Strymon BigSky provides the atmosphere. I must say I am quite impressed by the BigSky's reverb capabilities... it can produce some amazingly dense textures with near infinite decay, and it sounds amazing when hooked up to synths.

Anyway, enjoy the video montage... I hope the music and visuals take you on a journey.

Cheers

My review of "Quiraing" CD by Blake Gibson & Robert Davies

Posted by Richard Gürtler on April 12, 2015 at 11:30am 0 Comments

Edmonton based Canadian dronescaper Blake Gibson, rather known under his moniker Broken Harbour, has 3 solo albums to his credit, while Robert Davies from Ithaca, New York, a master od drone subtlety, is one of the familiar names constantly releasing through Canadian DataObscura label. His discography features 15 solo albums (one on Stefano Musso's Hic Sunt Leones label) plus 5 albums as The Winterhouse (with DataObscura's Anthony Paul Kerby/APK). Now, Blake & Robert have joined their drift routines for "Quiraing" album, which was released at January 25th, 2015 on Databloem. It looks like this Dutch label has resurrected their Practising Nature packaging concept featuring slim maxi single jewel case with a j-card, but this time with a glass mastered CD. Stunning picture of Quiraing by Ian Cameron, showcasing part of this distinctive landscape in Scotland, formed by a great series of landslips, immediately sets the atmosphere both these dronesculptors are ready to ignite.



So no surprisingly, it's the title piece, 11-minute "Quiraing", that unfolds this journey. Deep drone scenario immediately invades the listening environment. Spiraling monochromatism secures its dominant mindscaping position, while organic traceries ephemerally keep on emerging. Enigmatically growling sounds sneak in as well, but alternate with occasionally climaxing dissonances, which awake even some phantoms. The drone consonance is fully blossoming, a pure magic, just like the awe-inspiring green slopes of Quiraing. Well-done, guys!!! "Seaside Surreal" delves into quieter dreamy terrains, but as much intense as the title piece. Expanding into magnificently celestial infinity, where utterly graceful choir-like drones are soothingly nuanced, crescendoed and alleviated with intangibly crystalline…
