This week (3/4) is the final show for Nightscaping Radio, and for this special extra-long "With A Little Help From My Friends" edition I’ll be paying tribute specifically to the various artists I’ve gotten to know over the years

Im thinking I should consider getting a turntable.....gosh what do you call them today. WHen I had a HiFi system as a teenager they were called record players because thats what you put on them to spin. Are they still being made today! Ha Ha.
As I have never lost the "desire" for physical product, I continue to purchase more physical cd's than downloads....stranger in a strange land. What rubs me the wrong way so to speak is when labels offer vinyl and digital only, no cd's. A…Continue

I've posted a few mixes of ambient music at Mixcloud if anyone cares to check them out. (As if we don't all have enough sources of music competing for ear-time!) Here's a link to the latest with music by Ken Camden, Another Neglected Hobby, Heathered Pearls, Robert Fripp & Brian Eno, Forest Management, Loscil, Marcus Fischer, A Produce and Solar Fields. Check out the earlier posts there as well.…Continue
Finished. No, really this time. Something of an epic compared to my usual short sketches, over the past couple of months I've spent many hours working on an as yet untitled Alphabet Dust track that runs to over eighteen minutes long (self-indulgent? who, me?) Arranged and mixed it umpteen times, added parts, stripped parts out, got close to scrapping it a couple of times and sometimes wondered why I do this as a pastime when it was rattling uninvited round my head. Am I ready to release it…Continue

Whoops, false start - it looks like I won't be gracing the airwaves this evening on Garnethillsound, probably next week. Still, worth a listen if you'd like to weird-out your Tuesday :) http://garnethillsound.com/

During the last At Water's Edge show, in the chat I asked what an Ambient album made entirely from Rhodes and various effects would sound like. That got my brain going, so I ended up making the title track for an album in the works. Everything in the track you hear is Rhodes. It consists of 2 Rhodes VSTs, one of them with 3 instances, and a rhodes sample.…Continue

As you know from earlier - I really want to move to ello. It's lacking some seriously major functionality that I believe will be there by the time we have to leave here end of July. Here's an update from Paul Budnitz - the founder of Ello. I live in Ello nearly every day multiple times a day - and I love it. It's a blank slate at first - like twitter was when you first joined (if you ever joined..) - you have to follow people. Rarely have I run across so many "cool" people so densely…Continue

With now more than 800 bandcamp purchases behind me, I am faced with a very pressing question, one that is fermenting deep in the back of my mind.
"When does collecting become hoarding?"
Now 800 albums may not seem so bad, well within a collectors scope of manageability. But if you add to this collection the nearly 2,000 additional albums obtained via various other means (amazon…Continue
