For The Ambient and mixtape archive 001

New FL. 9 minute 3 track piano minimalism EP. Some immediate feedback would be nice for once.

...that's the great thing about the ambient community, is the immediate feedback. It's a closely knit community, as cliquey as the individual, most people aren't..

I took the only physical version of this to my local record store on Monday. The peeps there are ofc allowed to copy it and share among friends, or sell it for profit.

Whatever, TripAdvisor recommended Lisbon in an email to me today. I've already been, by boat, but this tour in particular was prompted by listening to Bing Satellites and its exploratory tone.

Hakobune - Various

Includes: "One", "Wandering Towards What Was Unsaid EP", and much more.

This artist, Japanese as you could guess, is a musician I found reading my purchased copies of Wire Magazine in 2006-2008 era.

This is very haunting music, and some old new material, more obscure in the nature of the multi million songs deep Spotify catalogue, can be found through Alexa.

Putting that music on at lunchtime or late at night, in any case, on any platform is a real balm to the senses, helping one drift off to sleep, and find the unsaid...

To download some of Hak's music, search Bandcamp.

New Brian Eno record out. Comes with the remastered "Apollo" disc.
A few new releases on this excellent label

not sure whether I'd call this ambient, it's more like Can than anything, but it's really nice anyway... Bluesmiley


Hands In The Dark Records - Mick Buckingham

Having investigated the Hands In The Dark label before Fluid editorial, knowing it was a drone music outlet back then, later on
it has meta-mattered and metamorphosed its included albums to represent a clutch of somniferous styles. This latest offering is
curiously titled "How Deep Is Our Love" and while The Beegees might be a cryptic linguistic reference, the music, on the other
side of the world...yes, that is where it seems to be.

This music, from the very Harry Bertoia style of everything (see the Important Records Somnambient box) and Asher's "Landscape
Studies" from 2007, casts an impetuous drag-storm of thunder-tow. Mix and match words kind of thing...picking up a sense of
dread and try to connect the dots. This music has changed all that. In its earth's core, burning-furnace heathen style, the
sound of it never gets weighed down by endless collages of grey. Take a shade, cast aside a lead lure like a result of fly
fishing gone bad - you get the idea from this: it's a gathering storm of a record. Quiet and quietly intense, like a brow
absorbing wrinkles as it moves next to your fingers. It's full of menace, yet at the same time a paradox of sheer peace.

Maybe that was always the way with relief music, and relief efforts in general. The 1989 Virgin Records-organised classical 7'
"When Will There Be Peace" by various composers offered Unicef grouping and a chance for respite from the bad. While nearer the
last decade Fluid Radio has also put its hand in its pocket with the "Kanshin" double disc album (now sold out, but well worth
digging out). This music fits right in sonically, yet except the for-some triteness of yearning and its sensation, love is all
that doesn't exist in the universe. For me the social base of reality, in 2019, and as we edge into the 2020s, is that we have
narratively developed 20-20 vision; we no longer just have "love" without "relief". Or in other words, love and loss. The two
must go hand in hand, otherwise we seek to replicate World War II, and the effects of technological implosion. This record can
be seen as a successful balm to the Terminator-esque line of Sarah Connor: "there's a storm coming". Be here to witness it.

David Tagg- No One Came Out Last Night

Pretty good. In recent noteworthy stuff, Segues 3rd LP with Silent Season is here; Mick Chillage has a newold 25CD box on Fantasy Enhancing; and ASC and Bing Satellites have released records based on the moon landings and Thx1138, respectively

Ambient Schmambient, Glambient Pambient

Lately I've been drawn to the idea bubbling under, that life exists as an onion making us want to cry. How is that working in
the world at large today? It certainly throws reality for a loop. Lots of us have become so used to hurting each other, that a
balm for the pain - for me music - is one of the only ways I can protect myself from nasty and inconsiderate people.

Of course, most mean well all the time. And if it wasn't for cause and effect, none of this binaural ambience would matter. As
there is much to be said for psychic confusions and tensions, but that should not excuse nasty behaviour. I think what I'm
leaning towards with all this paragraph or two is, that: life exists as an onion, but we need more than ambience to help us heal
our pain, because ambience can also be dark, bleak, industrial. But it can obviously be very beautiful, too.

Ambience is ever evolving. Ambience is ever-living. And in the case of life itself, ambience is my lifeline.

The wife says ask her for my latest 2 downtempo and crossover mixes, made this afternoon. "Innocence Is Futile" and "Rethink Radio Mix"

not sure I'd really call this ambient, but anyway...
