eyes cast down commented on eyes cast down's blog post New Album: Memory Palace - Coming Soon!
"Ya, maybe I should qualify that a bit... not every piece is "seething".. :) but definitely two or three of the five. There's a nice range of moods and grooves - at least we hope it will be heard that way."

"'seething' - now that's a word you don't hear very often in ambient ! Look forward to hearing it."

What's been playing lately?

Update: 10/22/14

Mike Radice. The Phoenix Sun. Mike’s ambitious four-part longform piece has some terrific passages (especially the atmospherics in the first 10 and last 22 minutes), and his strong rhythmic skills are front and center through most of the piece. The guitar-and-drums jam in the third section didn’t work as well for me, but others may well disagree. That caveat aside, there’s lots…

Divinations Revisited, No. 4: Richard Feynman

Posted on September 9, 2014 at 2:15pm 8 Comments

Another character who always drew my attention, and therefore had to be reckoned with in words, somehow or other. I hugely enjoyed his two two books, Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! and What Do You Care What Other People Think? when I read them years ago. After all, how many scientific…

I saw your name in passing when I was cruising through the site just now, and I laughed at myself a bit, as when I came to this site I didn`t know anything about ambient and I didn`t realize that eyes cast down was a play on the shoegaze genre...gosh, I was such a newbie! LOL I Hope you are well

Thank you! I look forward to posting and seeing what ppl think.

Yes, Richard is awesome! I've been honored to get to work with him and know him more - I really respect his work.

Thank you Sir!
