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.

      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.

      Item: Vincent SP20 Anniversary Edition Hybrid power amp.
      Location:Gold Coast Qld
      Price: $1250     paid $1730  RRP $3499
      Item Condition: 9/10 like new approx 8months old
      Reason for selling: going all valve
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only
      Extra Info:   Bought this amp on speculation when Eastwood Hifi were clearing stock at very reduced prices due to a change in distributor. 
                What piqued my interest in this model, SP20, was the combination of valve input stage  and solid state output.
                  I have enjoyed this hybrid valve amp so much I have to decided to give all valve a go.
                 This amp has great bass weight and definition allied to a top end that is not harsh but has that beautiful valve airiness. But most importantly, this amp brings out the emotion in music.
                   The first 10 watts are class A with all that brings but still retains composure at loud volume levels.
                    Also included are various input valves including original russian, RCA (nos) and Amperex.
                       Eastwood Hifi assured me any warranty claims would be fully covered by the new distributor. 
                       I have original shipping cartons and receipt. Buyer pays for shipping.
                       Only to happy to answer any questions. 
                        Thanks for looking.
      Regards Paul
