David Sylvian - September

"One thing you can never say about Sylvian is that hes narrow minded of musical choices. His voice is very limited maybe an octave and a half but he more than makes up for the vocal range in the instrument and compositional department. I often wonder…"

David Sylvian - September

"Sylvians use of Jon Hassell and Kenny Wheeler on his debut was a brilliant decision. Talk about intelligent "pop" music. His instrumentals are always something nutritious for evening listening escapades."

"Apart from creating one of the best instrumentral ambient albums ever - 'Gone to Earth', this feller is a consumate songwriter (when he's on form). Such talent."

My review of "Archive Three" CDr by Anomalous Disturbances

Posted by Richard Gürtler on September 1, 2014 at 9:23am 0 Comments

Anomalous Disturbances, a drone guitar project driven by Terrence O'Brien from Vancouver, Canada, belongs to the most active members of The Ambient Ping community, which, by the way, celebrated two weeks ago its 15th anniversary (I am wishing many happy years to come!!!). "Archive Three" is comprised of 5 tracks recorded during 2007 and 2008 as a part of "Archive Two" recording sessions. Originally released in digital formats in the middle of October 2013, now, since May 2014 additionally available on pro CDr format packaged in a nice 4-panel eco sleeve with disc flap holder. Definitely a great decision, Terry, for all those nuts-collectors like me!!!



The title of the opening track, "A Sad And Beautiful World", exactly displays the atmosphere of this gorgeously floating ambience. A very calm and deeply evocative soundsculpting with hauntingly interplaying passages of soaring, slightly high-pitched wistfulness and soothingly permeating stillness. Nearly 11 and half minutes of virtuoso guitar aesthetics!!! "Pipe Dream # 1", although revealing calmly, incorporates more intense and cascading texture, yet keeping throughout a very warm approach with graciously unfolding immense panoramic touch. My ears are continuously bathed in splendidly embracing drone blissfulness, more please!!! "Mysterium Tremendum # 17", as indicated by its title, straightly dives deeply into a giant, chasmal realms filled with remote, eerily monochromatic hums, which are persistently pierced by mysteriously undulating and illuminating tenseness. A journey into a truly mindscaping zones, where spectacular, shadowy subterranean images are revealed with massively towering sceneries. "When Darkness Falls", with 16 minutes the longest piece on "Archive Three", begins with tensely penetrating dissonances,…

My review of "Intention" CD by Byron Metcalf & Mark Seelig

Posted by Richard Gürtler on August 31, 2014 at 3:00am 0 Comments

Virtuoso drummer and shamanic powerhouse, Byron Metcalf, and bansuri player and throat singer, Mark Seelig, both certified transpersonal therapists, joined their spiritedly galvanizing forces on "Intention" album, which was released at the end of April 2014 on Projekt. Jaw-dropping cover art by Kancano of deviantART gang and additional graphic design by Sam Rosenthal make from this 4-panel digipak a pure visual bliss!!! Let's fire the journey...



The title track "Intention", the longest one on this album, goes just over 22 and half minute mark and unfolds this powerfully creative sound wizardry with rather slower, but utterly mindscaping medicine bridging Byron's mesmerizingly passionate hand drumming with Mark's mysterious overtone voice magic hovering above and bansuri flute delicacies. Kindred spirit, didgeridoo par excellence player Dashmesh Khalsa (known from celebrated works such as "Dream Tracker" or "Live At SoundQuest Fest") delivers on the stage his immense talent as well. Primordial languages of these shamans are precisely dissolved into a highly ecstatic amalgamate curing the listener's body and mind. You simply can't go wrong with such line up, so the gates to the tribal-trance paradise are unlocked, enter now!!! "Surrender" kicks with much more vibrant palette of drumming, while Mark's throat singing is still safely riding atop. But the artistry of Byron's volcanic drumming can't be stopped, so Mark levels the tension with his overtone turmoil. Emerging spasmodic didge barks are provided this time by another world-class ace of this instrument, Rob Thomas of Inlakesh. A truly thunderous performance and a serious workout for your speakers!!! Feel the heat, feel the beat!!! "Encounter", with 16 minutes the second longest track, slows down the tempo a bit, at least…

Of Rime and Reason by Tim Kays

Posted by Jack Hertz on August 30, 2014 at 10:00am 0 Comments

Aural Films welcomes the return of artist Tim Kays with a new album titled "Of Rime and Reason." A collection of works inspired by something that is near and dear to us at Aural Films, the weather. In this release, Tim draws on his meteorological expertise to conjure evocative sounds-capes based on the concept know as "Rime," A type of ice formation, similar to hoarfrost, that results from a mixture of wintertime temperatures and fog conditions. Produces microscopic ice crystals that shatter to make a snow like effect when warmed by sunlight. "Of Rime and Reason" by Tim Kays will be available on Saturday August 30, 2014. Download the album now at https://auralfilms.bandcamp.com/album/of-rime-and-reason

Cloudwalk Website

Posted by Cloudwalk on August 30, 2014 at 8:52am 2 Comments

I finally finished creating the official Cloudwalk website! I had a lot of fun putting it together.

I'd like to invite you to check it out:

http://cloudwalk.wix.com/test-3

I'm using a Wix.com free account, and I was really impressed by how much I could feature on the site.  The only drawback I can see is that the URL is a little weird.  Their pro account allows you to license a simpler domain name, but this works just fine for what I am doing.

I've never done any type of website development at all, but I found that if you are at least familiar with embedding things like Bandcamp and Soundcloud material, you can get some great interactive music elements.

I'll be expanding it quite a bit in the future, but I wanted a nice basic page to start with.

My review of "A Perfect Gradient Sky" CD by The Eclipse Project

Posted by Richard Gürtler on August 30, 2014 at 2:09am 3 Comments

The chief protagonist hidden behind The Eclipse Project is Beau Lukes, in Toronto based hand-percussionist, didgeridoo player, electronic music composer and a graduate of Madison Media Institute. I firstly came across this multi instrumentalist on a highly applauded album "Music For Spaceports" by Eric Hopper's Sylken ensemble (released in May 2014). Beau Lukes appeared on two unforgettable tracks "Dreamship" and "Starsong", so I immediately started to search more about this crafted musician. At that time The Eclipse Project was already in full bloom and "A Perfect Gradient Sky" album was in the pipeline already. The Eclipse Project features talented collective of artists and "A Perfect Gradient Sky" is a debut album, released in May 2014 as a self-release by Beau Lukes, who is also responsible for the graphic design of this elegant 4-panel digipak (with additional landscape photos by Larry J. Herscovitch). The album is inspired by the geological wonders of the Scarborough Bluffs, which stretch for about 15 km along the Lake Ontario shore.



Tranquil sounds of water flowing announce the opening piece "Who Taught The Birds To Sing", but soon spoken words by Gary James aka Black Bear step in together with catchy children voices, all surrounded by warmly inviting vistas of synths, exquisite strings and field recordings. Later on gorgeously embracing native chanting with hauntingly expansive flute and subtle tribal drumming sneak in for a truly expressive prayerscape. This composition is filled with stunningly efficient harmony between the affinity of primordial and modern, a timeless world of aural pleasure awaits here!!! Bullroarer awakes the next ceremony, "Red Rock Dawn", but it's the rich palette of didgeridoo magic that quickly steals the show, accompanied by vague…
