    Or anything in your music collection with Paulstretch applied.

    I love it. Reminds me a little bit of Johann Johannsson’s Fordlandia with a little bit of Deaf Center. It’s a very addictive sound, slowly building and crashing, then decaying. Thanks for the link, Pesco!

    Whatever turns you on – or puts you to sleep – go for it.

    I was prepared to mock the author for having crap taste in music, because all the music  I’ve ever heard that was compared to Brian Eno, including Brian Eno, is just lame.  (And I say that as a fan of dark ambient and noisy glitchy droney weirdness.)

    But this is genuinely neat stuff, so thanks!I’m afraid I may be turning into a hipster or something.  Sigh.

      Who would you recommend in dark ambient & noisy glitchy droney?

      • feedbackscratch says:

        Well, you might already have heard some of these, but Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto work together is very minimal dark a glitchy, with Alva Noto’s solo stuff being heavily dark and glitchy.  Andrew Chalk’s compostions are very nice.  Richard Skeleton seems to be my favorite at the moment, he has lots of albums but I am very fond of ‘Landings’.  If you are looking for a good place to start Tim Hecker (mentioned above) and Fennesz are solid choices.  These tend to be more dark ambient drone, Alva Noto is more glitchy.  ]

          I wrote a whole big list of suggestions and it got eaten by the login process. >_<  But Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto was on my list (in collaboration, not so much separately), as was Tim Hecker.

          Christopher Willits is another whose music alone is pretty decent (glitchy and guitar-based), but is better when paired with Ryuichi Sakamoto.

    You might as well be walk’in on the Sun!

    I need to find the Musica che Pesco Suggerisce site. Does this exist?

    Thanks for the recommendation! 

    However, I tried for ten minutes to find a way to purchase the album, but Experimedia’s website is such a mess that I eventually gave up.

    Has anyone been able to successfully navigate to a page where you can actually purchase this album, preferably in a digital format? If so, could you share it here? Thanks.

    Whoa. Yeah. That’s the shit. My only complaint is you leave me waiting until the end of the month. I need that album available for immediate download, STAT!

    • experimedia says:

      Direct pre-orders for vinyl, cd, digital, and a complete bundle with poster open next Friday at … digital is delivered immediately upon order with all formats.

      Thanks to David for sharing this and to those who checked it out.

    As soon as I read a comparison to Hecker’s Ravedeath, I had to listen. Powerful stuff. Also reminds me a bit of moments on Sunn 0)))’s Monoliths and Dimensions.

    Thanks for sharing. I’ve marked the 31st on my calendar.

    There’s a very wide variety of ambient music these days and drone itself is a different genre. Still, glad to see this type of stuff represented here.

  11. Ministry says:

    Stunning – thanks!  I presume this’ll be in the region of $7?

    Off to explore the rest of the Experimedia catalogue! ;)

    The music is capital, and I must congratulate the cover art too– a beautiful composition of texture, color, and typography. Sun and “Woven tide” could not be expressed better.

    So well done! Can’t wait to put my preorder in this week! I’ve been itching for some good ambient, and I think this might scratch it.
