plug in an omni mic to sample yr apartments room tone and mix that in with the sample rate reducer. type "mastered by frank at the hudplex" or something on your cover, make sure the font is sans serif! sit back relax and wait for that phone call from the discovery channel.

don't ever forget that a snaredrum preset run through 100% wet reverb, overcompressed to hell and back and then resampled at 3.6khz sounds so fucking amazing that you should play it over and over again for at least a minute at the beginning of every session

I seriously can't believe people like that Gas record

"I was struck immediately with the essence of the piano pieces,
as if Akira's treatments had focused rather than distorting,
had distilled rather than fermenting, the vitality between the notes."

wow, i'm an idiot
i should post on ILM

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)

TOMBOT (TOMBOT), Tuesday, 18 July 2006 14:27 (fourteen years ago) link

excellent mod edit

TOMBOT (TOMBOT), Tuesday, 18 July 2006 14:50 (fourteen years ago) link

it was either that or a lock, but since i agree w/ your overall point (just not your specific example) i went easy on ya.

kinda wish i still had my copy of 'las vegas'

what's that silva lp like

milton parker (Jon L), Tuesday, 18 July 2006 17:36 (fourteen years ago) link

it sounds like 50 piano concerto records and 100 coltrane records played at the same time.

I ordered a copy

confucious rapidshared the one good hykes record, which is easily found at amazon, but still. he also has the 90's Eno CDRs -- worth hearing if you're a fan, though not as good as the earliers

not really ambient but i really need to get charlemagne palestine's "strumming music"

there is not enough ironical retro-cred given to FSOL. Lifeforms might be the blueprint for most of the worlds' evil these days but it has moments!

also there need to be more ambient albums made with the dialogue from cable tv fishing shows

does BISK go on this thread or is he something else?
can we complain about namlook?

TOMBOT (TOMBOT), Tuesday, 18 July 2006 19:18 (fourteen years ago) link

tombot, if you think the Gas releases are lazy, meet Wolfgangs brother Reinhard

ferzaffe (flezaffe), Wednesday, 19 July 2006 08:48 (fourteen years ago) link

FSOL. Lifeforms

hmmm I was just gonna toss this -- been weeding my CD shelves this week --but maybe I should play it agin.

Rip of the 1995 CD release from Della.

The CD spine and obi have the artist listed as being "Aloe", presumably referring to the plant, which alludes to the method by which the music was produced.

The insert suggests, without explicitly stating, that the human artist was Momoe Soeda, an expert in medical research relating to aloe, as he is quoted as describing how the music was produced:
"This CD was produced by attaching a surface potential measurement device to the aloe leaves and converting the measured values ​​into music information to play a synthesizer. The music played by this aloe releases you from everyday stress and leads to deep relaxation. Please enjoy it as a new type of relaxation sound." - Momoe Soeda.

Note also that the English title of the album "Aloe Extract Sound" is not a direct translation of the Japanese Title 「アロエ その不思議なサウンド」, which more directly translates to "Aloe: Its Mysterious Sound" (feel free to correct this translation if it is wrong).

as usual with these kinds of things, i'm a little skeptical of the premise of the music played by a plant because "converting" the measurements of the plant to music involves a ton of human influence. you don't just tape a cord on a leaf and glue it to a computer, you have to explicitly give assign ranges and possible values to everything. but the results of this experiment are really lovely.

zero hits for "Momoe Soeda" on ILX. i don't know anything about them but i'm intrigued!

listened to that the other day, a bit jarring at first but the ebb and flow does give it the feel of a natural phenomenon and it is weirdly relaxing after a while

clouds, Wednesday, 19 February 2020 17:59 (five months ago) link

did you happen to run across it on the Should Be Asleep youtube channel?

there's some good shit on there

ha i was just jamming this today, great channel

adam, Wednesday, 19 February 2020 18:29 (five months ago) link

it's weird because it's ambient plant music from 1995 and there is a certain recurring noise that sounds very much like a windows 95 sound, but yet it doesn't sound anything like vaporwave

Available June 26, 2020

Barely known outside of his home country during his lifetime, the late Japanese ambient music pioneer Hiroshi Yoshimura has seen his global stature rise steadily in the past few years. The 2017 reissue of his lauded debut, Music For Nine Post Cards, along with a slow building cult internet following has helped ignite a renaissance in his acclaimed body of work, much of which has never been released outside of Japan. Known for his sound design and environmental music, Yoshimura worked on a number of commissions following the 1982 release of Music For Nine Post Cards, including works for museums, galleries, public spaces, TV shows, video art, fashion shows, and even a cosmetics company.

Originally released in 1986, GREEN is one of Hiroshi Yoshimura’s most well-loved recordings and a favorite of the artist himself. Recorded over the winter of 1985-86 at Yoshimura’s home studio, the compositions unfold at an unhurried pace, a stark contrast to the busy city life of Tokyo. As Yoshimura explained in the original liner notes, the album title in the context of this body of work is not meant to be seen as a color, but is rather used to convey “the comfortable scenery of the natural cycle known as GREEN”—which perfectly encapsulates the soothing and warm sounds contained on the album, although it was created utilizing Yamaha FM synthesizers, known for their crisp digital tones.

This edition marks the first reissue of the highly sought-after and impossible to find album. It features the original mix preferred by Yoshimura himself, previously available only on the initial Japanese vinyl release (a limited edition remixed version of the album, with added sound effects, was released on CD in the US). Additionally, this release is the first in our ongoing series, WATER COPY, focusing on the works of Hiroshi Yoshimura.

yesssssssss
