Because I'm a member of Zone Music Reporter, they send me a monthly Top 20 Chart for all their affiliate radio programs. I noticed that Zero Ohms hit the number One spot on KCPR's ambient program, Audioscapes, with his title, "Process Of Being".
Zero also made the Top 20 (6) on WWSP's Ambient Aether, (20) on WAWL's Light In The Night program, and (20) WMSE's Instrumental Saturdays.
Congratulations to one of our finest. :-) My humble apologies if I missed any other members who charted.
Aural Films presents "Fog Music." A series of recordings inspired by the weather condition known as fog. Light and dark, wet and dry, this invasive event is a great source of inspiration for sound artists from around the world. This project seeks to publish 24 hours of these recordings as an on-going series for all to hear and enjoy.
Brian Bourassa (aka The Pliability Effect) “Picture yourself wandering aimlessly in the woods - in the fog. You would think that you would be apprehensive not knowing exactly where you were, but you are not. Instead you are curious with wonder and new discovery and somehow a seemingly confined space becomes open and limitless. This is the place where EugeneKha has taken us to in his two-part contribution to the "Fog Music" series. It is the place where breathing becomes wonder, not longer weighted down by thought”.Continue
If we’re talking about vinyl in 2014, we have to talk about Jack White. In April, rock‘n’roll’s self-appointed analog evangelist celebrated Record Store Day by teaming up with United Record Pressing in Nashville to put out the“World’s Fastest Released Record.” At 10 a.m., White and his band recorded a live version of his new album Lazaretto’s title track at his own Third Manstudios, then drove the masters to United, where it went immediately onto a 7” press, before ending up in fans’ hands at the Third Man store. From start to finish, the process took 3 hours, 55 minutes, and 21 seconds.
It was only the beginning of White’s latest streak of vinyl whimsy. In June, he packed the LP version of Lazaretto with all sorts of ear- and eye-candyincluding hidden tracks beneath the label; engineering side A to play from the inside-out; a matte finish on side B; a hand-etched hologram, and more. Fans were excited about the extras, which led to record-breaking sales: Not only did the album reach #1 on the charts, it also set a new high for the most first-week vinyl sales since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking data in 1991. White sold more than 40,000 copies of the Lazaretto LP in its first week.…Continue

Bing Satellites - Twilight Sessions volume 13
Out now on double CD and download
Listen / details at www.bingsatellites.com
My latest album is a collection of live, improvised ambient music based around a long, slowly decaying loop.
Each piece starts as a blank canvas. I play a few notes into a long, slowly decaying loop (or loops) and see where the music takes me.
This is a very inspiring and liberating way to create music - I can express myself in ways I never could with words or traditionally written pieces of music.
I hope you enjoy it too.
The cover features a large emerald moth with landed in my bathroom one warm evening.
They are quite common, although they don't usually stand out so much from their surroundings.
And yes, volume 14 shouldn't be too far behind!
Spotify does pay artists
I keep seeing the accepted wisdom that Spotify doesn't pay artists - or if they do, it's so little to be pointless. I would say that was true a year ago, but now they do pay significantly more than they used to. My CD Baby royalties are approx. half spotify royalties these days.
Saying that, they are greedy in the amount they take from musicians and I don't like their business model, but I felt it was worth pointing out, that those out of date Lady gaga figures just aren't current now.
