The Ambient & Experimental Thread

Recommended Posts

Not gonna create a thread because not enough people listen, but. Boomkat just put up a 2xLP issue of Leyland Kirby's The Stranger project for his 2008 album Bleaklow remastered. First 250 on transparent yellow.

 

Order this because the man can do no wrong.

Also did an interactive DVD (reviewed here http://acloserlisten.com/2013/09/30/0011011001111000-6x/)that was basically a trippy psychedelic cornucopia where you go around a dude's apartment as he's losing his mind.  It sold out a long time ago, but it was WELL worth the money!

If any of you ever put out a record, PM me. 

 

Here's a fun release from Trouble in Mind, This is a different kind of ambient, one full of distorted synth and stuff, for fans of DIY experimental for sure: http://slyvinyl.com/psychedelic/hiiragi-fukuda-seacide-limited-to-100-lemon-lime-vinyl-lp-2

The venue I work for is rad....REALLY rad. It's also a 24/7 experimental/ambient "instrument" with various triggers and sensors all over the place (from doors to the restrooms, light sensors inside the venue, sounds sensors that read the decibel levels in the coffee shop/bar, also one I the venue, there's even one that's hooked up to one of the beer tap lines).

The Octopus Project from Austin, Texas helped install and set it up. It's a brainchild of our head sound engineer, Daniel Ferris, (who happened to record the first St. Vincent record and was her touring sound engineer) and Brian Teasley (played drums on the first Saint Vincent record, founding member of Man, or Astro-Man?, was in The Polyphonic Spree during the height of their success, and also the owner of the venue).

They've dubbed this thing, The Living Venue project.

It's accessible 24/7 via Mixlr and they eventually plan to record snippets of it and release it as an album (we'll see about that part).

Here's the link with a little more info and a link to the Mixlr

PS as I posted this, they're doing a free yoga class inside the venue with the Living Venue Project playing over the PA, so currently, it's feeding into itself and everybody's movement inside is triggering different stuff
