Finally chuffed to land a copy.   Brian Eno - Music For Installations (9LP)  

joining in.  Cocteau Twins ‎– Milk & Kisses. last studio album and a ripper - original 1996 UK pressing  

Arvo Pärt - Alina -- the obvious pre-cursor of the A Winged Victory For The Sullen album above (I reckon they are even paying homage to the album cover). Only two pieces, but with a variety of arrange

Not sure if this would be ambient or not, but I am enjoying the "Assassin's Creed " soundtrack CD which my daughter gave me when she bought the De Luxe edition of that game  ( she kept the game but doesn't spin music discs at all ) so we are both happy, albeit unexpectedly for me.

 

It is hugely atmospheric and gives one's woofers an Italian tune up.

 

Apologies for no photos,it just came in a cardboard sleeve with only the game logo and track listing on the cover

Not spinning as such but just back from the basement after seeing A Winged Victory For The Sullen. Great gig, wonder what it would sound like in the City Recital Hall. 2 other SNAers there in @@dwbasement and @@guru

I think it would be another level of experience if it's in the recital hall.

Great nite of music it was!

Bing & Ruth: Tomorrow Was The Golden Age

 

CD

 

'Tomorrow Was the Golden Age' is an unmistakably gorgeous and refreshing suite of microtonal minimalist composition by New York-based ensemble, Bing & Ruth. Helmed by writer, conductor and lead pianist, David Moore, and supported by two upright bassists, two clarinetists, a cellist and a tape delay tech, Bing & Ruth genuinely sweep us off somewhere sublime without recourse to overblown conceit or cliche - something all too prevalent and cloying in today's neo-classical quarters. Their skill lies in the ability to drift, almost imperceptibly, between microtonal harmonies and silent/grand dynamics with patent subtlety, segueing gradient fields of colour with a grand, yet never imposing, effect. In that sense 'Tomorrow Was the Golden Age' surely recalls your Glass's and Reich's, but also the time-smudging transcendence of Morten Feldman, Brian Eno or Stars Of The Lid, and, in parts, a louder Jakob Ullmann for their keen attention to contemplative quietude and involving, delicate depth of field. The timing of release could hardly be any better, too, with a sound that beautifully mirrors the transition of the seasons, ripe for long headphone mooches and gazing out of the window alike. Warmest recommendations.

Do have a listen to local guys Peter Knight and Dung Nguyen's Residual and remix album Re-Residual.

These guys were part of Way Out West  (more jazz influenced)

http://www.jazzhead....y-out-west.phps

 

here they enter much more electronica territory

 

Residual

http://www.parenthes...uyen_-_residual

 

Re-Residual (remix album available as a free FLAC download)

In 2010, Parenthèses Records released Peter Knight & Dung Nguyen’s duo collaboration RESIDUAL seeing the pair developing unique approaches to combining Vietnamese and Western music elements in a contemporary setting.

At the start of 2014, Alexis Courtin from PR and Peter Knight discussed their shared desire to give the album a second life and thus asked a carefully chosen list of musicians from France and Australia to present their personal perspectives on Residual. The result is this amazing album that comes as a FREE download, blurring the boundaries between abstract ambient, repetitive experimental music and groove-based textures. - See more at: http://www.parenthesesrecords.be/catalog/various_artists_-_re:_residual/#sthash.fGYF0JWl.dpuf

An elegy of nicely-produced out-takes.

 

Of interest to the sort of person who hunted down the unofficial Floyd remixes, otherwise it's a peripherally interesting taster or teaser for various parts of their back catalogue.

Edited to say: it's a grower.  4 stars, not the 3 stars of my first impression. Very pleasant.

Kicking back listening to Brian Eno's Music For Films - one of the great haul of CD's I acquired thanks to Hired Goon's generosity.  Thanks once again Geoff.  Still working my way through a rather large pile of CD's and I haven't forgotten what I said re duplicates (and those CD's I'm not interested in).  It's just going to take me a while to digest them all, but I'll get there eventually.  Nobody else is getting their hands on Music For Films however...perfect Sunday night album.

Music For Films

 

 

Wonderful! Various pivotal Eno re-releases are due for re-release tomorrow.  Meantime tonight in the third drawer down we have let someone else choose the music:

 

Internet radio: Soma FM Drone Zone

Now playing:   Juta Takahashi - Quiet Rain

subdued synth washes and treated piano at glacial pace, lovely!

Listening to the latest album by Asura 'Radio Universe' on Ultimae - one of my favourite labels for many years for downbeat, space and techno.

 

Also Dr Atmo - 'Quiet Life'.

Last night was Exploding Star Orchestra - Stars Have Shapes. Ostensibly a jazz release, but to my ears it is largely droning/ambient in tone.

Been a while since I posted on this thread, even though most Sunday nights are filled with ambient tracks. More often than not, I'm just too busy to post what I'm listening to.  Anyway, tonight I'm listening to Harold Budd and Brian Eno - The Pearl.

Have you tried bandcamp.com? Plenty of choices to pick from and you can stream the music before you buy.

      Selling used Vincent SV-237 (SV237) hybrid integrated amplifier.
       
      I am the second owner, I purchased it off a fellow SNA member 8 days ago. Just selling it as I decided not to buy speakers anymore.....
      please refer to the link below:
       
      it is engineered by Frank Blohbaum of Thorens fame (amongst others).
       
      The original owner of the amp upgraded the 6N1P's to Voshkod Rocket 6N1P-EV's and the 12AX7 to a telefunken.
       
      The only blemish on it is the tiniest of dents on the top edge of the face plate (see pictures).
       
      I tested it and it is fully functional
       
      Being a hybrid integrated amplifier, the original tubes can be rolled if desired  
       
      I have the original box and would prefer local pick up as it is VERY heavy, but happy to ship it at buyer's expense.
       
      Remote controller, original packaging, manuals, batteries (for the remote) and power cable is included. I can also provide the receipt 
       
      thank you!

      I bought these well regarded D-100 hybrids 2nd hand about 18 months ago, just to give hybrids a go. I had read that they were easy to hit and good for golfers like me who struggle with long irons. I liked them so much that after only a few rounds I decided to buy a full set of hybrids. I'm a Cleveland man, so I bought a set of those. Now these Wilsons are excess to my requirements.
       
      The heads have a few nicks and scratches - this is how they were when I bought them.
       
      The faces are pretty clean and tidy.
       
      The shafts on the 4 and 6 are the Matrix Ozik Altus "R flex" in graphite. The 2 has been upgraded to a Mitsubishi Diamana graphite in "S Flex".
       
      Grips are great.
       
      Happy to ship these as I have a box.

      Item: EOI: Lamm m1.2 monoblock amplifiers
      Location: Canberra
      Price: $11500 ono, non-inclusive of shipping
      Item Condition: Very good
      Reason for selling:  Moved on to other amplifiers.............
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: replaced valves with Russian equivalent 6n1p23 which are much better than 6922s
       
      In terms of complete disclosure, one lamm, had a problem with the delay switch, which is normally 45 seconds, and was taking a few minutes to turn on, I sent to Kimil electronics in Sydney, the Lamm nominated repairer, and this was fixed, without issue since
      i bought these from a SNA guy in Sydney 18 months ago, in exchange for Lamm m2.2s, and they are the correct Voltage for Australia. They were checked and rebiased by Chris at Kimil, prior to my purchase, bias is currently to Lamm specifications.
       
      I have the wooden boxes, and manual for these, I can supply 6922s, if purchaser prefers. The shipping to say Sydney is about 60 dollars each, these things are very heavy, dimensions and weight shipped can be supplied to prospective purchasers. The details are on the Lamm website I believe.
      please remember that despite large size these are 100 watts class A into 4 or 8 ohms, and roughly double AB.
