"I agree, g.a.b., I was hoping to give the bandcamp release a great little review, but I couldn't as it was a free download. No harm, I'll just make sure everyone knows that this "Free" album by FF and Michael Meara is outstanding…"

"This is quite nice, Brad (tell Michael!). A beautiful, long-form piece (not simply looped) & a fantastic listen."

New From Free Floating: Contemplation 2 by Michael Meara

Form in Void  The tree is stripped, All color, fragrance gone, Yet already on the bough, Uncaring spring! --Ikkyū  <a href="http://freefloatingmusic.bandcamp.com/album/contemplation-2">Contemplation 2 by Michael Meara</a> In the notes for the first release in this series, Contemplation 1, I didn't say anything about Michael Meara's music, including instead an extended Zen quotation. I felt this was in the spirit of the music itself and the concepts of 'form' and 'void' from which…See More

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…

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.
