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)

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!

Kankyo Ongaku: Japanese Ambient, Environmental & New Age Music 1980-1990

my 2CD version should arrive today, I'm excited. The 3LP has two more tracks but I'm pretty much over any new vinyl pressing that doesn't have multiple positive comments re: pressing quality on Discogs or Hoffman.

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

Yes

calstars, Monday, 13 May 2019 18:49 (six months ago) link

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 (six months ago) link

Speaking of, either this is ironic or there is a marketplace specifically for Japan that they should be using to order it?

*** TERRITORY RESTRICTION - NO SALES TO JAPAN ***

Evan, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 21:43 (four months ago) link

Ha, I was going to ask the exact same thing! I have *no idea* why that is. I see it more often, especially w/ Japan(-related) stuff. I honestly don't know.

Le Bateau Ivre, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 21:47 (four months ago) link

Japan usually markets a domestic version with bonus material to make up for not allowing the import, basically protectionist policy applied to LP/CD releases

sleeve, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 21:51 (four months ago) link

this explains why so many Japanese releases have bonus stuff

pretty sure I learned this from sic somewhere on ILM

sleeve, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 21:52 (four months ago) link

Isn't that a bit old-fashioned in this day and age? I can see why majors did this back in the day. But it's not like this reissue will also be done by a Japanese label (to my knowledge). It's a reissue by an indie label, an indie label called We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want! :)

i would be totally into that thread but i would be 99% in learning mode, not contributing new stuff so much. i know very little of this stuff, but i'm super into the handful of things that i do have. :)

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 22:18 (four months ago) link

Bless you guys <3

It's official: I am going to start that thread. Not tonight, but in the next week. But I *will* do it. Japanese ambient is, by far, the 'genre' I feel most at home and at peace with myself with. I'm obsessed with it, even though I get frustrated by the more I know about it, the less I know about it. I'm just as much, if not more, in learning mode than you are Z! But we'll make it work. We'll make it a listening club thing. I'll try and woo and charm ilx user and connoisseur supreme MaresNest for expert guidance. It will be tranquil and beautiful. FP me if I haven't started the thread by next week!

(Calstars: extremely (though not that extremely off topic, but you need to know this): It was you who put me onto C4tSyst3mC0rp's "P4lm M4ll", over on some vaporwave thread, last year. Through a truly *bizarre* and wholly random chain of events (I cannot stress this enough) I recently learned that dude lives within 7 miles of me! He keeps his guard up - and rightly so - but I'm pitching a story about him, interviewing him for a big publication, next week. Googleproofed him because he doesn't it yet ;) But I had to tell you this <3 ).

Guard down meant more in a "wow this nu-vaporwave-legernd has quite the pedestrian job outside of his music" kind of way, but good for him and I'm on it iirc

Le Bateau Ivre, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 23:42 (four months ago) link

Will definitely bookmark a Japanese ambient/new age thread. I hadn't read this yet when last night I got a bug to seek some out on Spotify and subscribed to a couple of pretty good huge playlists and listened for hours.

Kankyo Ongaku: Japanese Ambient, Environmental & New Age Music 1980-1990

just finished listening to this (the full version) and it's really nice. love comps like this where there's a lot of variety but you don't exactly feel like you're listening to a different artist on each track.

probably doesn't mean anything to you lot but it's currently bolded on RYM and has over 1,000 ratings, that's pretty significant for something that I imagine would've gathered zero attention five years ago

daniel schmidt and the berkeley gamelan - In My Arms, Many Flowers

this is the ambient gamelan you have been craving

at home in the alternate future, (Karl Malone), Sunday, 3 November 2019 04:31 (two weeks ago) link

Daniel Schmidt In My Arms, Many Flowers Recital DL/LP While deeply learned and eminently serious, the American gamelan music documented on In My Arms, Many Flowers is somehow quintessentially Californian. A student of Javanese gamelan at California Institute of the Arts, Daniel Schmidt and some of his fellow travellers wanted to begin composing for the instrument in the early 1970s. As there was no authentic gamelan accessible, Schmidt determined to make his own, forging from aluminium instead of bronze, and putting together a group of players who had to be trained to play the new instruments as they were being developed. It was an experimental process, and the result was the Berkeley gamelan – the name referring to both the instrument and its attendant players – with which the four tracks presented here were recorded between 1978–92. Of building the first instruments, Schmidt simply said that they sought not perfection but “the general sound of gamelan”. “Our instrument designs and our compositions evolved hand in hand, and our products became increasingly idiosyncratic,” he writes in the sleevenotes. “I suppose American Gamelan was much like the rest of our country. Everyone did things their own way.” He did not compose in the traditional Javanese style, looking instead to the contemporary music that excited him, especially minimalism; and although he says that the music he created “is outside our Western experience for the most part”, it certainly seems of a piece not only with much 20th century avant garde composition, but perhaps even more so with the new age sounds that formed a background hum in the Golden State at the time. “And The Darkest Hour Is Just Before Dawn” opens with a cycling string samples, before the gamelan enters with a slow melody at first, then with phosphorescent bursts of ornamentation; on the percussive title track, the ringing of the gamelan is joined by the plaintive sound of a rebab, intended by Schmidt to signify a bird that “calls from far away”. “Ghosts” employs traditional gamelan techniques to produce rapid passages of interplay, too fast for a single player to execute; the final track “Faint Impressions” is a hypnotic study in layered overtones and decay. All four compositions are annotated extensively and rather esoterically by Schmidt, and unusual looking sheet music is also available: wayward scholarly trappings for a beautifully pure-spun product of the West Coast dreamtime. – Francis Gooding

yeah, i listened to it a bunch the last 2 weeks!

i've also been heavily listening to the reissue of Yutaka Hirose's 1986 LP Nova.

it was the second release in the Soundscape series commissioned by Misawa Home Corporation. the first was the better known (i think?) Surround by Hiroshi Yoshimura, also from 1986.

the reissue is great because the 4 bonus tracks (about 50 minutes long) go even further in blurring the lines between performed music and field recordings

i just discover Flux last week and then when i found out he'd worked with Boyd i had to do a quick background check to make sure he wasn't a nazi dildo but it's an amazing record

also i've been listening to all of Hiroshi Yoshimura's stuff, the internet is in alignment
