a community supporting ambient music, art, poetry, photography, games and more
I finally have something to share after 4 years of hard work on my followup to the first album I ever started work on, A Chance of Weather. This is the first IDM and Ambient release by DeepWarmth. Taking about 4 years to complete, and is inspired by Rei Harakami who sadly passed away during the making of this album. This becomes an album in memory of such a great Japanese Electronic Music artist as much as an album that reflects the various stages of life during the making of the album. There is a very special remix not included on the preview from Coppice Halifax that will serve as the 11th and final track. Being released on Omchaki November 14th, 2014.

Digital sales for the major music industry is plummeting. Reference: Billboard article. There are about 50 more articles out there as this blew up this month. If digital sales go too much lower - it'll hit the same decline rate as CD sales.
Streaming and music not being a "collectible" thing - and frankly - not even as important of a thing to younger people these days with entertainment options being so vast. Granted there are still collectors out there - but fewer and further between.
It does affect the teeny tiny artists like myself... it means there are less people into music so much that they eventually start looking for non-major releases and finding artists in the lower range ... below the Indie Labels. Less people in the ocean of listeners for all of us artists trying to connect with.
Note - the article also mentions: "Within album sales, there was one bright spot: vinyl is up a whopping 47.5 percent to 6.074 million units from 4.12 million units last year."
This album consists of songs that did not make the final cut of my full-length album entitled "Endless River". I wanted to let these songs out to the world and decided to combine them into a continuous piece that flows forth from the same place as "Endless River". The end product is a 32 minute journey available as "name your own price". It can be downloaded for free, or pay what you like. Thank you for listening and thanks for your support.

Galactic Travels Playlist #915 for October 16, 2014.
On this show, I continued the month-long focus on Craig Padilla. The Featured CD at Midnight was "The Heart of the Soul" on Spotted Peccary Records.
Thought Radio Playlist for October 18, 2014.
In Phase 1, I continued the special on Sequences electronic music magazine. In Phase 3, the Artist of the Month is Pallas (PALLAS OFFICIAL). I played music from "Arrive Alive" on InsideOut.
After "Epoch" (April 2012) and "Emergence" (June 2013), here comes the culmination of "Inspired Evolution" trilogy, entitled "Evolution" and released on Spotted Peccary Music during August 2014 in catchy 4-panel disc eco wallet featuring original photography, layout and design by SPM/Lotuspike visual stalwarts Jourdan Laik and Daniel Pipitone. First there was the Epoch of reptiles, then followed the Emergence of mammals, while this final installment focuses of the Evolution of early humans. So another adventurously transporting journey reveals...
"Fire Gathering" instantly calls back the memories of mesmerizingly mindscaping percussions and mysteriously dissonant rumblings explored on "Emergence", the transition into a new era has just begun. Intriguingly wrapped by tensely nuanced atmospheres, which brilliantly display peculiar insignias of both soundcarvers. With your headphones on, a powerfully immersing listening experience awaits!!! "Growing Into New Territory" quickly shifts into warmly relieving zones, quite panoramic, reinforced with subtly pulsing synthetic sounds, while additional piercing fragments slowly emanate and alternate with array of organic flutters. Delicious tribal-like rhythm inconspicuously sneaks in and meticulously amalgamates with hypnotic pulsation. Stunningly spellbinding transmutation continues, bravo, gentlemen!!! "Waiting For The Storm To Pass", the longest piece on the album with 13 and half minutes, merges undulating expansive drifts, continuous flow of strongly mesmerizing repetitive helixes and occasional spasmodic outbursts. Tranquilly high-tech, trance-infused shamanic performance with ear-splitting climaxes thrown in!!! The next cut, "Hunting In The Hills", moves into shadowy drone terrains, rather unfathomably monochromatic on the back,…
