there's a palpable difference between wolfgang voigt being lazy (gas) and burger/ink: las vegas

the main difference being laziness, which tends to plague a lot of ambient music. just because it doesn't have beats and lyrics doesn't mean you can get away with being boring on purpose, or that all concepts hold water (TOMBOT: granular synthesis ate my balls, coming out in 2007)

i agree that "as long as i can hold my breath - by night" is totally gorgeous. i really like the rest of that album too, it sustains quite a mood.. nocturnal pastoral stateliness, would befit some david sylvian vocals but it's quite wonderful just on its own.

it's unfortunate that darla's reissue subbed a really stock-y orchid photo (plus typically naff darla typeface) for the super pretty roccoco-ish rose ensemble of the original issue.

god this is so perfect. I hope it doesn't preclude a higher quality reissue program at some point; Teibel had so many unreleased Environments projects in the can I've been hoping could see the light as bonus material, but this app is just the perfectly functional way to present this material. Tintinnabulation & Intonation forever.

a lot of my sleep listening is increasingly handled by the phone via a digital dock with optical out, in the past either extended playlists or 10 hour youtubes, but looking forward to more people experimenting with generative apps like Eno's Reflection or this - https://longplayer.org/listen/longplayer-ios-app/

just a head's up that the new Light in the Attic comp is out:

https://lightintheattic.net/releases/4088-kankyo-ongaku-japanese-ambient-environmental-new-age-music-1980-1990
Kankyo Ongaku: Japanese Ambient, Environmental & New Age Music 1980-1990

it's kind of misleading because it's up on spotify and bandcamp, but only 10 songs. the physical release has 25 songs. i feel like the bandcamp page should mention this - it's a really good incentive to purchase the physical version!

i'm happy to see that it leads off with a track by Satoshi Ashikawa, whose Still Way I have been obsessively listening to for the last month or two (or longer? how long has it been?). Still Way was his only released album, but he has tracks on other comps of the era that i have never heard, including the song included on Kankyo Ongaku, "Still Space". similar to the first Light in the Attic ambient comp (I am the Center), it's a mix of well known names and obscure. in this case, you can find familiar names like Hiroshi Yoshimura, Takashi Toyoda, YMO, Haruomi Hosono and Sakamoto solo tracks, as well as a bunch of people i've never heard of.

light in the attic's shipping center is down until March 1, but i'm excited to get it in the mail soon! i also picked up the second ambient comp (The Microcosm: Visionary Music of Continental Europe, 1970-1986) while i was at it

calstars, Monday, 13 May 2019 18:49 (one week ago) Permalink

Karl have you spent much time with yours? So far this is the only ILX mention I see.

i've listened a few times, but i wasn't following along in the booklet/tracklist so i can't remember the standout tracks offhand. i mentioned it upthread, but the lead track is by Satoshi Ashikawa, whose Still Ways album I'm completely obsessed with.

in general, though, i'm less taken by this new comp than the last two (I am the Center and Microcosm). i think it's because environmental music tracks on the latest one really reach their full potential when heard in the context of the full album by the respective artist, rather than on a comp with other artists. environmental music like this thrives when it's allowed to settle in a particular mood for long stretches of time, for hours, maybe even on repeat. just when i start to settle into the Ashikawa track that leads the comp off, it switches to the next thing, and the process repeats itself.

these are not all of the possible side effects (Karl Malone), Monday, 13 May 2019 18:51 (one week ago) Permalink
