Hello dear rM music lovers. I will update the member release section until Joel is back. For now i tagged all album releases that were posted on rM from September 2012 to May 2013 with the tag "release" to ensure that you can find them by this tag. So now if you are curious about all the wonderful releases that came out the last few months i suggest you to take a look here:
I will link some missed albums from time to time (maybe bi-weekly), i found some pearls. So here we go and it was pure joy to listen some member releases today. I found 5 older releases that i think wasnt posted in this section already. For entry just click on the pictures.
January 20, 2013
First one is from my good friend Ran Kirlian from Altera Orb label in Spain. This is the wonderful space tribal ambient that is so typical for him. You surely will love it when you love some deep emotional music made with lots of synthesizers. I deeply love this music.
Second missed album is released by our member James Mills from the UK. This is pure ambient, its a deep, spheric, somehow distorted music for deep meditation in flotation tanks. Deeply reminds me to Gas (Wolfgang Voigt) sounds and to some of the sounds of a new rM member (Autumn Elizabeth-Raine).
The next album that i havent seen and listened until today is a brilliant dark ambient album by No-Oxygen, a project by Manos from Greece, on his newly founded De Profundis netlabel. I recommend this one if you love the old dark wave sounds.
Roberts Scott Thompsons album is the fourth release here to be posted. You can hear ambient sounds from the more classical side and it is very sublime and delicate. The music takes you on a journey into calmness, its sounding very professional.
The fifth and last album i have choosen for this section and that didnt show up here already is from our good rM friend Chad Kettering. Its music of the sky and wide areas with a deep ancient touch. I always feel transported to a special place when listening to this powerful and high quality album thats made like for a movie.
Enjoy the music and many thanks to John.

Hello dear rM music lovers. I have some new member albums for you. All prevent releases you can find in my blog:
Noise Theorem - Dust, the new album from our member Tony Scharf is a powerful experience into beautiful dark realms of pulsative ambient. I deeply love all the distortions and noises on this album, all the special effects, vocals and wonderful melodies. This album is energetic, brooding, industrial and simply beautiful.
Alongside is the new album from our member D.Z. from Russia. Its a beautiful natural space ambient album inbetween dark and light with mysterious and sometimes very mystic soundscapes. I can feel this deep bond to nature and universe that i love so much. This is a precious and very free music from somewhere beyond the stars.
From our member Shane Morris comes the first album of a trilogy of pure outer space music. Its called Multiverse and immediatly transports me to an otherworldly place of crystal like spheres and streams that are placed just nowhere and everywhere.
Occurrences In Rain - Remembrance Music is a wonderful new album (the 7th) by Bruno Janiszewski and our member and my good friend Gregg Slater. Its a fantastic and proved collaboration crossing between Poland and the United States. On this dark ambient album you find totally insigthful journeys into the realms of ourselfes. Its melancholic, deep and haunting, full of a longing sadness that is so very beautiful.
The Birth Of The Real Self is the new album and a wonderful travel into the very self of Apollonius (our member Eelke van Hoof from the Netherlands). The music speaks of ancient times and places and has a very special and unique signature of mysterious dark haunting themes of the nature. In some passages it totally reminds me to the music of Lisa Gerrard.
I wish you much pleasure with these great music.

Hello dear rM music lovers. Here are 5 new member releases for you. We are still in the old year 2012. Maybe you have missed them.
Ensueno (our member Rudy from Russia) composed a vision of a Perfect Island. This music is definately taken from a beautiful dream. Theres an inseperable bond between natural and alienated space tones on this new album by Rudy, there are always these great atmospheres he creates, and in some parts theres a deep deep melancholy.
Another Neglected Hobby (our member Mark Cotton) released a new dark industrial ambient album. Known for his spectalular sound manipulations and visualizations, i always feel inside the sounds and mechanic when listening to his music. Sojourn is another deep exploration into the world of sound molecules.
The Sidereal Cycle 3 is the third part of a four-part suite created by Altus (our member Mike Carss from Canada) and its dedicated to nature. This long-form ambient piece album speaks of the sky and space while it is among us here on Earth. It somehow reminds me to the music of Steve Roach. A deeply relaxing music.
From our good rM friend Steve Brand comes a precious re-release. This is by far my very favorite music from Steve. Epicenter of a new Dawn is deep and spacious. Its massive and weightless the same with precious tones and breathtaking melodies. The flute is amazing. I simply love this deep toned music that i never heard from Steve before.
Aairria (our member Marcin from Poland) wrote a new deep meditation album. Whitefall is a lo-fi sounding album with an analogue harshness and tape-like artifacts, and this is especially why i love it. It is amazingly beautiful in the depth. Floating from a distant dream i am transported to a nonentity state of being. Full of passion inside, melancholy and hope in a neverending struggle, so beautifully. My favorite release from Aairria.
I wanna close with a citation by John Cage that i found on Aairrias back music catalog: "The first question I ask myself when something doesn't seem to be beautiful is why do I think it's not beautiful. And very shortly you discover that there is no reason."
Much pleasure with these albums!

Hello dear rM music lovers. Today im listening to some more new member releases and i wanna share this with you.
From our member Max Corbacho from Spain comes his deep dive journey "The Ocean Inside". Its an excellent floater through space and time. I love the depth and new deeper tones on this album. Its a true pearl that transports me to beloved inner fields.
The Elderbranch Campain is a newly founded collaboration between our members Stephen Robert Rook Thompson from the UK and Gregg Slater from the US. "Soundscapes Of The Weathered" is their 2nd experimental dark ambient industrial album with highly visual spheres and lovely scary noises.
"Harmony Through Conflict" is the new album from our member Igneous Flame (Pete Kelly from the UK). Its maybe his most composed album and thats the reason why its my favorite album from Pete. He touches space and human nature with shimmering and unheared sounds. A pure jewel.
"Omniverse" is part two of the Verses Live Trilogy series from our member Shane Morris. This time with deeper tones and rhythms and with a kindly obliquity, the album captures perfect soundmodulations unto experimental dnb feelings in the end.
Our member Brad Ross-McLeod from Canada this time released some of his own music on his Free Floating Music label. In tradition "Sketches From The Edge Of Silence" is an extremely quiet and calm music that flows very beautifully.
The new album from our member Stormloop (Kev Spence from the UK) titled "Back To Dust" tells from the beautiful areas of outer space that i imagine full of sparkling flowers and tales of nebulas while listening to the music. Wonderfully spacy.
Enjoy : )

Hello dear rM music lovers. On todays precious evening i wanna share some special albums from our members of the relaxed machinery.
I wanna start with Ari Porki - Hauras. Ari comes from Finland. If you know the hauntingly beautiful northern areas of our world you will be immediately transported there by listening to his music. The new album catched me from the very first moment. It is nature and spheres and it hides a deep melancholy and mystic mystery.
Next one is Fabio Keiner - Canto. Fabio is a sound sculpturer from Austria. On his new album he shows his unique signature to music. Earthly tones that are untethered from Earth. Containing spatial baroque spheres from inbetween dark and light, this music captures the promised shadow lands.
Next we have Grzegorz Bojanek - Live In May. Grzegorz comes from Poland. His music on the album is taken from a concert of the Warsaw Electronic Festival on Tour from May 2011. You hear guitar, drones and captivating spheres underlined with fields of nature sounds.
Next album Frore - Undercurrent is a perfect travel from the very beginning. A travel to the inner core of life and nature. It is a pure music of the origin and native merged with the dark and light realms of transcend borders beyond life. Prepere for live percussions, deep nature-to-space tones and a great symphony of humanity.Next album is Michael Brückner - The Eleventh Sun. Michael is from Germany and he creates classic electronical ambient music that he obviously is able to transform it very easily into the new time. The music on his new album flows with such an ease and a delightful depth.
Last album for today is Steve Brand - The Track Of The Full Moon On Water. It is a longform ambient piece speaking from and to the heart by its first tone. I recommend this one to listen on headphones to get the full depth of a precious music and soul. At least it worked out to me : ) This one is so special that i wanna say thank you for this moment.

Hello dear rM music lovers. We have March-Equinox and im back with some new member releases.
Todays beginning makes our good rM friend Chris Russell with his latest album release "Portal". As the album title tells, the music is about entrancing the mysteries of outer space. This is a beautifully dark, spacious and transmorphing space music and a space journey, very different to the music i know from Chris but also very exciting to see he is entering this darkened space genre with his very own gentle tones.A beautiful cover and a beautiful new release by our member Asteroid Anxiety from Russia. "Centaur" is filled with flying and glittering ambiences, deep intertwined rhythm structures and dark-melancholic feelings all around. It melts natural and mechanical tones in an unique way, sometimes very distorted what i always love.
The re-release "...entry to a defiled reverie..." by No-Oxygen (a project by our member Manos from Greece) is a wonderful travel into aural dark ambient spheres. The music is calm, beautiful, mystical and truly captivating, especially the voices / choirs. All tracks on the album are mixed together and so it flows seamless from one to the next.
Another re-release "from darkness to renaissance" by No-Oxygen in an outstanding collaboration with Mike Radice (both members on rM) keeps the promises of the album title. You hear dark ambient music that is influenced by the past dark wave and gothic times. It somehow deeply remembers me to the air of that bygone time, i can hear an old music wispering to me again, like In The Nursery meets Ordo Eqitum Solis.
The last release for today comes from our member Symatic Star (Simon Walsh from Australia) together with his partner Sheleah Nahshon. "Quintessence" is a special album, transcendental and ancient mystical the same. All of the sounds on album are made with Simon and Sheleah's voices.
Dive into the spheres and let yourself surprise by the inner mystic of all of these albums : )

Take the chance to enter these great sounds, its really worthwhile.
April 14, 2013
Hello dear rM music lovers. Imagine a music comes from our beating hearts and it went along in a pulsating universe. I have some new member releases for you.
"Berlin Alexanderplatz" by miXile (our member Michael Shanahan) is a dedication to the wonderful metropole capital of Germany. This is live ambient with field recordings that Michael recorded by himself when he travelled to Berlin and that he integrated into live sets that he played all over the world in the past 2 years. Read the full story in the blog, its a wonderful album.
"Blue" by Bing Satellites (our member Brin from the UK) is the second album in the colour series, following on "Red" and being likely not the last. Its a beautiful ambient drift work, based on improvisations with hints of rhythm, piano and colourful melodies. Last track on the album is a live recording from his "Mostly Ambient" radio show.
"Sonology Of The Ground" by The Elderbranch Campaign (our members Gregg Slater and Stephen Robert Rook Thompson) is an audio documentation about "the ground" being not the earth we walk on, but those who have been ground down by life, work, economic disparity. You hear a hauntingly dark experimental anthem like music that you best experience with headphones.
"Waterscapes" by Soft Note (our member Philipp Kalchuk from Russia) is an underwater travel carried by orchestral sounds. This longform piece is a perfect classic composition that transports you to underwater scenaries of the beauty of the calm wild sea. Somehow i feel like i am in the middle of a beautiful old movie soundtrack.
"Metastructure 4.198ks" by Aairria (our member Marcin Drabot from Poland) is a music like the album title tells. You hear touching heavy metastructured sounds made by otherwordly entities and order. This album is the third one of a row, check out part I and II, and enjoy this lovely creepy stories, all inspired by the surreal worlds of Tsutomu Nihei's 'Blame!' manga.
April 27, 2013
Hello dear rM music lovers. I hope you all have a wonderful spring time. Here is some new music for you.
"Seven" tracks inspired by nature and peaceful environments. This new album from our good rM friend Peter James (UK) is a homage to the beautiful countryside of Cumbria and captures tones and memories from there: birds, rain, gongs, wind, and a distant music with sublime melodies.
"Phase Shift" is the new album from our member Hollan Holmes. It is a wonderfully ambient drift work from wide nature-space areas. It is cosmic, full of flow and sometimes underlined by sequenced sounds. A distant light is glittering throughout all the tracks, and especially the final piece.
The new album "Music To Dissapear" from our member Perry Frank (from Italy) is a beautiful journey into the dreamful scenaries of life. Made with classical intruments: piano, guitar, this music is made like for films and places from a precious gone time, to hold its memories.
Some unreleased session tracks from our member Autumn Elizabeth-Raine. Im a big fan of her music that is sublime and very pure. This music is made from a distant dream, and it is for sure made for a dream. You hear distorted spheres, piano hints and melodies and a very poetry in music. "Shadowlands" takes you on a beautiful journey into mystic ancient twilight lands between heaven and earth. The new album by our member Frore (Paul Casper) has all of the tribal elements like previous albums, but also some new ideas. It is a deep music of spheres you will hear."DY9397" is the new EP from our member Alexander Forselius (from Sweden). The name comes from a flight number, DY9397, the music fusions eastern tablas with chill out. Sometimes reminds me a bit to old space night series with artists like Cell and Aural Float.
Enjoy spring and the music : )
May 9, 2013
Hello dear rM music lovers. Im now diving into some new member music and here it is.
"Jaguars & Shamans" is a journey into the dark realms of Amazonia. Inspired by the mystic visions from our members Jack Hertz (US) and Cousin Silas (UK), this is a very powerful music that combines traditional and cinematic elements.
"Wetlands" is a new solo album by our member Jack Hertz. The music contains electricity, water, nature, guitar/sitar, gas, synth/arp tones and is inspired by places of greenery and water where life abounds in ponds, marshes and swamps.
"Ballard Landscapes 3" is a new solo album by our member Cousin Silas and third collectively inspired selection of JG Ballard inspired tracks. You hear delicate synth and guitar sounds on this album that visualize an aural picture of special scenaries.
"Shambala" by our members Symatic Star (Simon Walsh from Australia) and Jack Hertz shows their vision of a mystical kingdom beyond the snow peaks of the Himalayas. Dive into tibetan and shamanic tones, voices, sublime spheres and beautiful rhythms.Three new re-releases by our member Darrell Burgan aka Palancar containing some internet radio concerts that he did between 2004 and 2007. This is totally live music on synths. My very favorite piece is "The Exalted" (this one is truly special).
Love and music : )
