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…Continue
Any of my musician friends have (or know where I can get) a used or discount legal copy of Native Instruments' Absynth?
30 years ago, in 1984, Steve Roach released Structures From Silence, a collection of music that completely altered my perceptions of what music could be. It was the blueprint of a musical world that I am still living in (and constructing) today.
This isn't actually a question, it's more my opinion on a certain matter.
I don't see why anybody should name a release "Album Name EP" or "Album Name (EP)".
I think it's kind of apologizing for the length of a release. If a release makes sense as a collection of tracks that add up to a certain length, then that's it. If it's 20 minutes it's 20 minutes.
I think it's especially true since digital distribution has more or less done away with standard album length (which…Continue
I put together a compilation of Lucette's CC music as part of our celebration of her 60th birthday. Brushstrokes Echo is now available for free download.

February 25th of this year would be the 60th birthday of the incredibly talented painter and musician Lucette Bourdin, who unfortunately passed away in 2011.
In honor of this occasion, Free Floating is spearheading a month-long tribute and celebration of Lucette, her music, and her painting.
Just got this email and thought folks here might be interested:

It's been one year since Free Floating released The Sidereal Cycle 1 and I felt it would be fitting to put all 4 pieces together in one special package.
The release contains all four pieces in the series as well as some new cover art and expanded liner notes. (For those who have already downloaded the…Continue
The latest release from Free Floating has been available for a little over a week now and I wanted to feature it here on Relaxed Machinery for those of you haven't heard it.
Daniel is one of my favorite Free Floating artists. He composes the most beautifully serene music.

Well, folks. I've had this music sitting on my hard drive for the longest time and decided, as a sort of New Year resolution of sorts, to just let out into the wild.
I feel somewhat sheepish releasing my own work via my own label, so this is simply self-released.
I've played various tracks on my show, so there won't be anything egg-cracking new. But I hope that you might enjoy some of…Continue

Posted this over on the Free Floating blog, but wanted to be sure it got the proper attention here as well.
I just feel compelled to help out one of our own in the free/CC/ambient music community.
Ambient artist Bobby Jones (AKA I’ve Lost) recently underwent surgery that has resulted in complications and has left him with mounting medical…Continue
The other morning I was hit by a bolt of inspiration, “It’s time for another Free Floating compilation.” There have been the two Christmas compilations, and the label’s inaugural release, Conception, is nearly a year ago. So it’s time for something new.
So I am here issuing an official call for submissions for the next Free Floating compilation: a.m.
The theme for this…Continue
