"Fabio, There is nothing stopping you from posting the track for listening now. I would very much like to hear it, not so much so that I can say it should have been included or not included, but so that your work does not go unheard. Brian"

Seeking Mastering Help for Steve Roach Tribute

Posted on July 10, 2014 at 2:53pm 5 Comments

I'm working on the Free Floating "Structures From Silence" compilation and thought I'd really like to have it mastered properly.

Since FF is a free label I don't have the means to pay anybody (which makes me really sheepish about asking, but I figure you never get anything if you don't ask). Steve Roach will be involved in the project, providing liner notes and his reactions to the tracks. This is why I would like it to sound its best.

If anybody is interested (or knows…

Absynth...?

Any of my musician friends have (or know where I can get) a used or discount legal copy of Native Instruments' Absynth?

Thanks.

Brad Ross-MacLeod

It must have hit me back in the fall of 1983.

It was the start of my freshman year of college.  I was living away from home (by maybe 2 miles) and exploring independence and freedom.  There were late nights.  Mine didn’t include drinking or drugs or partying.  A lot of time was spent talking.  Meeting new friends, learning about life.  And there was a soundtrack.  Especially late Saturday nights.

The soundtrack was Stars End on WXPN in Philadelphia.  It opened up my mind to new worlds of sound, new ideas of music.  The sense of serenity and mystery has always stuck with me.

The first LP I remember purchasing (from Garland of Letters on South Street in Philly) was Structures From Silence by the master of ambient, Steve Roach.  To this day it is still my favorite piece of ambient music.

Thus began my love of ambient music.  I spent years collecting LPs, then CDs.  (Why did it take so long for Structures From Silence to make it to CD?)  And then the MP3 revolution.
