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/
