A serene organ-drone soundscape, for the "Rain" series, by ambient artist Scott Lawlor, host of Stillstream's Blind Flight program. About the album: "I've been wanting to do something for the rain series for some months now and I've felt for a while that the organ has been underrepresented so-to-speak in the drone/ambient genres. The only other organ set that I know of that's specifically ambient is Problem-Reaction-Solution, which I am quite fond of. Having this in mind, and...

Darkly chilled electronica and an assortment of remixes make for a nice evening of listening enjoyment. About the album: mayfairgrin seeks to wrap the listener in a warm blanket of molten melodies and chilled rhythms. This is impressionistic music, existing outside of the verse-chorus-verse structures of a three-minute pop song. The music expands and blurs the boundaries between shoegaze, gothic, ambient, industrial, post-rock, and electronica. mayfairgrin has existed in various forms for the...

The Webbed Hand "Rain" series in now graced by a contribution from Djinnestan. Much like the shorter works of Djinnestan, this 74-minute piece is subtle and enchanted. As if in a dream you find yourself strolling in a fairytale forest, dark and misty, peopled by the figments of childhood imaginings. This album is ideal for meditation, trance-work, and quiet activities. It is recommended that you play it at low volume, as it is meant to be listened to peripherally, not directly....

Somewhere in the spectrum between Musique Concrete and Phonography, is a vast gray area that is disowned and disputed by either side. This compilation treats this no-man's land as its playground. Field recordings they are, with some processing, but not just walls of rhythmic noise. Sounds of nature, sounds of the city, using the non-instrumental rhythms and melodies of the source recording as the focal points, coaxing the music and beauty out of unplanned, un-orchestrated events.

New works by [mikra], at times ambient and at times dark and industrial, a painterly approach is employed to create abstract pictures in sound.

Aristofan, having crossed, has ascended also his hands carried him unostentatiously. The lapsed steppe has flooded everything what only to pacify were afraid with a printing camp....

About the album: "In creating this, the final chapter in my Rain Trilogy, I used the same equipment set up which I utilized on the previous two installations. This time, I was influenced by Palancar and his track entitled 'She and I, Watching the Rain'. Where the first rain piece was more ominous with its thunder and organ drone, and the second much colder with...

This work is dedicated to the memory of ambient artist Lucette Bourdin . "The track title 'Hardanger' comes from hardanger fiddle music I ran across. I was listening to a rip I had of Alien Air Music , and just at the end of the previous show they had an off-beat classical music spotlight where they played this hardanger fiddle track done with troll tuning. Quite haunting. I was so taken with the track I edited it out and made a stand alone track of it -- I have since bought the cd . I...

Haunted textures of sound are served forth in classic Djinnestan style in this unexpected EP release. Do ghosts relive their dying moments? Do they have unfinished business, or messages for the living? Without explaining the concept of this album, I shall leave you to infer what you can from the track titles and a close listening to these haunted soundscapes. Djinnestan's art consists of heavily processed acoustic, electronic, and sampled sounds, woven into rich sonic textures. Typically these...
