Indesterren AV talks to Tom Eaton

Ambient Visions is proud to be speaking to Tom Eaton this month and we thought you might like to know a little bit about him before we get started. Tom has spent more than 30 years playing piano and synths which explains why when you listen to his latest release Indesterren you will get chills at how good the music sounds. Couple that with the fact that he has been running his own commercial studio for 23 years and you start to get the picture as to why his music sounds like it does. All of that is very impressive but let me add one more thing to dazzle you with. About six years ago Tom started collaborating with Will Ackerman (yes that Will Ackerman) at Will's Imaginary Road Studios and to date has had the opportunity to work on more than 50 albums including multiple ZMR award winners and Laura Sullivan's Grammy Award winning album from 2014. Now you get the picture. This year after a 25 year hiatus of recording his own solo work Tom has released not one but two albums over the course of 2016. Abendromen came out earlier this year and Indesterren came out in October. Both albums have been played on Echoes, Hearts of Space, Stars End and have charted on the ZMR Charts. Not too shabby at all. Well now that you have been primed with all of this information I'm sure you are chomping at the bit to get started on the interview. Shall we begin?

Salvaging the Present
by Dean De Benedictis

 

AV's Spotlight Review

Salvaging the Present by Dean De Benedictis AV Spotlight CD Review

What an interesting album this is. The first time I listened to it I wasn't quite sure what I was getting into but about halfway through I was hooked and each listen thereafter was a deeper journey into the heart of this fascinating album. What pulled me into this most excellently constructed soundscape was the first track on this album called To the Ends of Elation. I think that perhaps because it was so dense with things happening on the soundstage that a quick listen will not suffice for a listener to truly appreciate all the work that Dean has put in on this recording. With this first track clocking in at 8:29 it really gives you a chance to dig into the composition and feast upon the carefully constructed composition that is aurally satisfying as Dean shifts and weaves the sounds onto his musical canvas in very pleasing and very thought provoking ways.

Indesterren
by Tom Eaton

 

AV's Spotlight Review

Indesterren by Tom Eaton AV Spotlight CD Review

Tom Eaton's latest release is a thoughtful, peaceful album filled with gently flowing streams of music that offer the listener a perfect opportunity to kick back at the end of a busy day with the musical equivalent of a nice cup of hot herbal tea. I very much agree with the idea that music is a healing agent to the many stressful situations that we face every time we step out the door and that it should be applied liberally whenever we feel the need to let go of situations that cling to us after we come home for the day. The great thing about Indesterren is that it not only keeps the listener grounded and relaxed with the organic feel of Tom's keyboards that he does so well but it also manages to open the door slightly to the space beyond our terrestrial point of view via his skillful blending of synths into his music so that it reaches out to the stars that twinkle in the night sky.  It creates a mindset in the listener which is both a stationary relaxing moment in time and at the same time he takes us on a drifting journey to new and unexplored places. He did a great job of offering up both of these scenarios in a few of the songs on this collection without letting either dominate the other. Such as in Waltz and Venus. Feet on the ground head in the sky so to speak.

In the Midst of Stars
by Majestica

 

AV's Spotlight Review

In the Midest of Stars by Majestica AV Spotlight CD Review

In the Midst of Stars is a creative blending of styles from two very talented performers that yields some great music. I would classify this album as space meets new age and the resultant blending of music just goes to show that given talented performers working together each taking their own musical perspectives and merging them yields a top-notch hybrid album that has characteristics of both but still stands on its own as something else. Sherry Finzer demonstrates again and again that she is able to use her flute as a brush to paint the emotions contained in each composition onto the hearts of the listener during the course of the song. Cass Anawaty's expertly layered keyboards, drums, guitars and synths create the foundation upon which Sherry's expressive flute playing is allowed to run free. While Cass' playing is foundational to Sherry's music it also lives and breathes on its own as well as witnessed on How Does It Feel where Cass' guitar playing shines right beside Sherry's flute. The trick to making a group venture work best is not so much that everyone gets a turn or their own songs to work with but that all of the songs are representative of the best that each performer has to offer and that is exactly what happens here as Cass and Sherry both shine on each of the compositions. The music on In the Midst of Stars is a peaceful journey for those who will take it and as it ends with a trip among the stars and the listener will be glad that they chose to take the trip.

Americana
by Doug Hammer

 

AV's Spotlight Review

Americana by Doug Hammer AV Spotlight CD Review

Doug Hammer's latest release Americana comes on the heels of the most brutal and divisive election that this country has ever known. With a release date of November 11, it made its appearance in the aftermath of this election which has left this country divided and hurting like never before. So, Doug's timing is either very unfortunate or very fortuitous depending on your point of view. To be very honest I really didn't feel up to taking on reviewing an album filled with patriotic and national boosting songs such as are found on Americana but decided I would add my views of what this album might represent to those of us who have survived the tragedy of this election.

Doug has chosen 18 songs for this album which features some very patriotic songs like The Star Spangled Banner, the Battle Hymn of the Republic and God Bless America as well as some traditional folk interpretations by Doug along with 8 songs that were written specifically by Doug in an attempt to capture those same feelings of national unity and create his own musical vision of what it means to be proud of your country.

Eyes to the Height

Ambient Web Spotlight

Interview with James Murray by Ron Schepper for Textura e-zine

Ten Questions With James Murray  

Though a number of James Murray's releases have been reviewed at textura, he hasn't been the subject of a major article or interview—until now. It's an oversight that should have been rectified long ago, but hopefully the following in-depth interview will be an adequate atonement. If anything, the interview comes at the perfect time as the London-based Murray has just issued a splendid new full-length, Eyes to the Height, which evidences the high degree of craft the self-taught composer has brought to all of his work since 2004. You never know quite what you're going to get with a Murray release, but rest assured the quality will be high, regardless of whether the focus is ambient-electronic, modern classical, or electroacoustic. We thank Murray for sharing so openly his thoughts on the album and his creative process.

12/3/2016

Coming down the home stretch for 2016 as we begin our march towards December 31 and a brand new year of music in 2017 for all of us to enjoy. Of course there is a little holiday in between here and there called Christmas that we will have to pass through first but I'm sure we will all do just fine. Just go online and buy everyone on your Christmas list a variety of ambient/new age releases and spread the joy that you have all year long as you listen to your favorite ambient artists from January through December. With the days getting colder here on the East Coast of the U.S. I anticipate spending a lot more time inside with a pair of headphones on catching up with some great music that I may have missed in recent months. The first few albums that I listened to were fantastic so I am eagerly looking forward to devouring many of the new titles that have shown up in my e-mail box and my PO Box during that time.  

With albums by Dean De Benedictus, Tom Eaton, Matthew Stewart, Rudy Adrian and Philip Wesley to start the ball rolling I was pleased to see that there were five winners right off the top. Of course to use the term "winners" implies that there are losers which is not a term I like to use when referring to artists and their work so how about I say I started off with five great albums and I am looking forward to seeing what else has shown up since I last delved into the promo pile. Of course now even the term "promo" pile does not apply quite like it used to. For most of the albums that I mentioned above I used Spotify to listen to them and get a good idea of what the music was all about. I still get a mixture of actual physical CD's in the mail here at AV but often these days a promo will also mean that I received a download code from the artist or the label letting me download a copy from their own server or from Bandcamp.

Eyes to the Height by James Murray reviewed by Textura website


Each James Murray release seems to capture a different side of this resolutely explorative producer, with earlier collections having focused on guitar-based soundscaping, electroacoustic minimalism, and ambient-electronic meditations. Hints of what might stylistically surface on his seventh solo album, Eyes to the Height, were intimated by the recent Ghostwalk EP, which, like the new full-length, brought things full circle for Murray, given that his 2008 debut, Where Edges Meet, also was released on Ultimae Records. That the EP included remixes of the title track itself suggested changes the full-length might introduce when Murray and Kinosura each threaded beats into the title tune's framework. That dimension aside, Eyes to the Height's primary focal point is atmospheric ambient-electronic music of a deeply sultry kind.

Four Days In My Life by Louis Colaiannia reviewed by Kathy Parsons of Mainly Piano website

I’m very excited about pianist/composer/keyboardist Louis Colaiannia’s Four Days In My Life because most of the music on the album was composed during a four-day period when Louis was here in Florence, Oregon in June 2015. He did a house concert here during that time, but it sounds like most of the rest of his time was spent with his keyboard either on the beach or watching the ocean from his hotel room. The calming effect of being by the ocean is apparent in the music, which was recorded at Will Ackerman’s Imaginary Road Studio and features a stellar line-up of musicians. Colaiannia has an extensive background in classical music as well as jazz, so his music is varied and distinctive. None of the ten pieces are solo piano this time, but all are original piano-based compositions and most include at least four additional instruments.

Atlantis Trilogy: Brave New World by Robert Slap reviewed by John Shanahan of Hypnagogue

My confession: This review is quite late in coming because Robert Slap caught me on a day where my professed—and untoward—bias against the use of overt New Age tropes was turned to high. I saw the word “Atlantis” and the Papyrus font, and I thought, here we go again. So I nudged it over to the no-thanks pile. Fast forward to me putting together a recent podcast episode, shuffling the music in my library, and this quite good, if obviously New Age, track comes on, and it’s Robert Slap. So here’s the review. Yes, Atlantis Trilogy: Brave New World, the final installment in Slap’s story of the lost kingdom, has its very, very New Age moments and does wander a bit into too-sweet or too-melodramatic territories for me, but there’s also some very good work here.

Beneath a Darkening Sky by David Arkenstone reviewed by Candice Michelle of Journeyscapes Radio  

Recorded by candlelight during the winter season, “Beneath a Darkening Sky” is multi-instrumentalist and award-winning composer David Arkenstone’s boldest foray yet into dark neoclassical and haunting ambient terrain. Comprised of seven tracks spanning just under an hour, the compositions vary from seven to nine minutes in length. Composed, performed and produced by David Arkenstone on electronic instruments and synthesizers, as well as old-world instruments, he is joined throughout by Luanne Homzy on violin and viola, along with Susan Craig Winsberg on flute and Irish pennywhistle.

AV Articles

From my point of view we simply won’t have comparable data for about 20 years, or perhaps for about 10, which I think begins to be a fair comparison point for looking at income from CD/download sales against income from streaming. 

Added to that, I think there are a number of confounding variables, including accurate, competent registration of music rights, transparent reporting of sales and usage both now and before, and opacity & variability in the deals done with streaming services. 

If you talk to reasonably successful electronic music labels, they may still be investing thousands into promotion for a release that’s viewed as popular and end up with total sales of 140 or less.  So you are at a loss straight away.  Sales are heavily, heavily down, which completely changes the business model. 

Now, I personally like access instead of ownership as a model. It seems, at least theoretically, fairer to the people whose music gets listened to more.  Of course, that listenership will still be unduly influenced by marketing spend, which is always where indies are at a disadvantage compared to majors. But really, I’ve bought plenty of indie CDs and vinyl that turned out to be disappointing – and if I listen to Patti Labelle more than Ishq, it’s fair that she should get more of my money.  What I can also see from a recent soundtrack release is that, while it sold single figures, it was streamed by listeners in more than 20 countries.  So, streaming, for those of us who are looking to increase the size of our audience, is better, I think.

Blueprint

 

 

AV's CD Focus Interview

Blueprint AV talks with Bob Holroyd

Ambient, world fusion, experimental, chillout, electronica; these are just some of the genres Bob Holroyd’s music has been described as. But not wanting to be categorised, he has long pioneered music that crosses musical and cultural boundaries. Spiced with world influences, his music touches all corners of the globe and he has worked with such a diverse range of artists that his music knows no boundaries and becomes almost impossible to describe. Almost. 

Just think Brian Eno meets Groove Armada round at Mory Kante’s Buddha Bar, having cocoa down in Acapulco… and you’re nearly there. To date, he has released five critically-acclaimed studio albums and three remix albums, including remixes by Nitin Sawhney, Coldcut, Mogwai, Lemonde and The Album Leaf. His music appears on over 50 compilations and has also featured extensively on TV and films, including Lost, The Sopranos, Friends, The Secret Millionaire, Panorama, Coast, Horizon, The Nutty Professor, My Best Friend's Wedding and the Ace Ventura films. 

Other projects he has been involved with include recording the Islamic Call to Prayer inside the Regent's Park mosque in London. Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens), sang the Holy text and Bob composed a track around this haunting vocal.

AV's Quick 10 Interview

Imbue by Androcell aka Tyler Smith

Androcell is the enveloping, electronic dub infused music project of producer and artist, Tyler Smith. For almost two decades he has been at the controls of music production, experimenting with different styles and emotions in sonic art form. Over the last ten years under the Androcell name, Tyler has been steadily growing in awareness across the planet for his organic meets electronic musical expressions of bass drenched, effects heavy sound manipulations. Having a deep passion for blending a multitude of music styles, instruments, and cultures, he continues with his studio-as-instrument approach in creating emotional and immersive sound productions. After four full-length albums plus various compilations, EPs, and remixes to the name, the Androcell project stands as a firm embodiment of his sonic exploration.

Androcell reemerges yet again to bring his fourth studio album "Imbue" to the sensory surface. This latest work is a new journey of vivid sound imbued with peace, love, courage, strength, and healing for the human heart, conscious mind, and nervous system. Together, in alliance with Altar Records, this album is proudly presented as a limited-edition CD with all original cover artwork painted by artist Jack Shure and quality mastering by Colin Bennun at Stooodio Mastering, UK.

State of the Ambient Union 2014

A few years back I ran several opinion pieces of those involved in the ambient/new age music industry about the state of the ambient union as it existed in 2008. As the pace of technology increases and the fact that the way we consume our music seems to be in a constant state of change I felt that perhaps it might be nice to revisit this topic again and take a look at the ground that we covered in the last 10 years or so musically speaking and what kinds of changes we might expect over the next few years in regards to ambient music creation and distribution.

The music industry has been in a state of constant change since I first started to listen to music way back when I put the needle down on my first 45 RPM record. While the changes took a little while to manifest back in the day because there was a manufacturing process that drove the music industry that had to be adhered to and it took time and lots of money to make changes from albums to 8-tracks to cassettes to CD's. Once music became separated from the physical and broadband speeds increased enough that files could be uploaded and downloaded all bets were off in regards to what the future held for the record labels and for the artists themselves.  

These series of writings are not an attempt to predict the future of the music industry and the ambient/new age genres in particular as we have seen the futility of trying to do that every time a rock solid prediction (so it seemed at the time) falls flat on its face in the cold light of the future. Let's just say that these writings are musings of those who make, distribute or play it on the air. It is a time to look at where we have come from and what possibilities lie ahead for the ambient/new age artist if things continue on their present course.

Blake Gibson aka Broken Harbour offers up his views of where the ambient community is currently and shares his thoughts on streaming, physical product and why it's a great time to be an ambient musician or listener.

Artist Spotlight on Paul Avgerinos

When Paul Avgerinos graduated from the Peabody Conservatory of Music in 1980, as a full scholarship honors student, he had already performed as a bassist with Isaac Stern, Jean Pierre Rampal, The Beaux Arts Trio, Baryshnikov and many other great classical artists. He also has won scholarships to play and study at music festivals in Tanglewood, Aspen, Grand Teton, Taos, and Spoleto (Italy). After graduation, Paul served as principal bass of several major symphony orchestras around the world, and gave solo recitals as well. 

Expanding into more popular genres, Avgerinos toured as a bassist with Charles Aznavour, Liza Minelli, and the jazz legend Buddy Rich. Seeking to further his original composition and develop his childhood passion for electronic music, Paul built Studio Unicorn, a comprehensive digital/analog recording studio, in 1984. Nine solo CDs in the New Age genre followed, including Muse of the Round Sky on the Hearts of Space label. Muse was nominated for a Grammy and is played on more than 2,000 radio stations around the world in addition to syndicated shows such as Music from the Hearts of Space and John Diliberto's Echoes. Two thirty ­minute features with the latter are added to his credits along with his many other radio interviews. Paul's music is currently being played on Sirius XM Satellite radio & DMX as well as Music Choice SoundScapes. 

He has appeared on fourteen sampler CDs and as a guest artist on albums by Joanie Madden, Faruk Tekbilek, Joaquin Lievano, Brian Keane and others. Paul records and produces many popular albums as well and has worked with artists as diverse as Jewel, Willie Nelson, Deana Carter, Richie Havens, Run DMC, and the Celtic Tenors . Avgerinos always makes time for scoring and has worked on many Film, Commercial, TV, and Cable projects for all of the major and minor networks. Paul's work on Peter Kater's Red Moon earned A 2004 Grammy Nomination. Paul's album GNOSIS placed #1 on the New Age & World Radio Chart and his latest, Garden of Delight, won an award for the Best World Album of 2007. Keeping busy creating original music for a variety of interesting and rewarding projects is a way of life. 

Currently, Paul lives and works in his Studio Unicorn, Redding, Connecticut, where the deer pass by his studio windows and the hawks and eagles give inspiration from above .
