Blueprint

AV's Spotlight Review

Blueprint by Bob Holroyd AV Spotlight CD Review

Having been a fan of Bob Holroyd for over two decades starting with Fluidity and Structure way back in 1993 I am very happy to see that Bob is still releasing great music all these years later. The music business in the last decade or so has not been the most hospitable to the very artists that fuel the business with their creative endeavors so it is always a good sign when artists that you have come to respect over decades of releases are still putting themselves out there with new music instead of giving up, taking a day job and keeping their musical compositions for themselves on a hard drive somewhere.

Blueprint is Bob’s latest album which came out on November 1st last year and while you might have a certain opinion of what could be contained on this release based on what Bob has done in the past you would probably be wrong because as usual Bob Holroyd’s music is anything but typical and he is always pushing past the boundaries of what has come to be called ambient music into new and unexplored areas. Blueprint is a wonderful album that moves fluidly between styles as diverse as ambient and jazz but does so in such a way that you will believe that they have always been the same genre of music sort of like twin sons of different mothers to steal the title of an old album by Fogelberg and Weisberg who at the time seemed highly unlikely to release an album together. Folk and jazz. But as Jeff Oster and Mark Isham have shown in the past trumpets and ambient music flow together quite nicely and now Bob Holroyd joins that club as well.

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.

Music For a Busy Head Vol. 1 AV Talks to Matt Coldrick

Matt Coldrick has toured the world with Gabrielle, scored music for the BBC, Channel 4, Sky, Sony and Sega, and founded Green Nuns of the Revolution, a UK Psy-trance outfit in the 90’s, with Neil Cowley and Dick Trevor. He formed his own label, Absolute Ambient in 2000 and released several chill and ambient albums and collaborations under the name Pan Electric. As Pan Electric Matt released an album called Elemental Journey which was a collaboration with Matt Hillier – better known to festival-goers the world over as Ishq. A stately, dramatic, cosmic and psychedelic album, it runs the gamut from the tribal drums of ‘Fire Dance’ to the beatless stillness of ‘Air’. The project was dedicated to reminding everyone of their elemental relationship with the planet. Matt has recently been an active part of the Melbourne and International Kirtan scene, playing with Dave Stringer, Sri Prahlada , Chai and Chant Cartel and Sun Hyland/Saraswati Soul. He is a session guitarist par excellence and a well-seasoned producer and co-writer. Matt currently lives and works in the southern hemisphere in close proximity to cake shops and yurts.

Anil Prasad of Innerviews talks to Robert Rich  

For composer Robert Rich, writing and recording music are acts of communion. Since the dawn of his career, an era captured in a recent vinyl box set titled Premonitions 1980-1985, Rich has focused on infusing his expansive electronic works with deep personal meaning, drawing from realms such as philosophy, biology, astrophysics, and spirituality. 

Rich’s output is frequently classified as space music, ambient, electronica or soundscapes. Depending on the project, one or more of these descriptions may have a potential resonance. But the San Francisco Bay Area native prefers listeners put preconceptions aside and explore the larger narrative being communicated and the emotions they inspire. 

His latest album Filaments exemplifies that perspective. The recording reflects Rich’s foundational electronic influences from the late ‘70s, as well as perspectives gleaned from minimalist pioneer Terry Riley, all filtered through a modern compositional and processing approach. It coalesces as a unified aural examination of Rich’s fascination with the possibilities and challenges of humanity exploring habitable planets beyond Earth. Filaments also encompasses the impact on consciousness and existentialist perspectives that might result if the species successfully made the transition.

Moth in Flames

 

 

AV's CD Focus Interview

Moth in Flames AV talks with Paul Ellis

From an early age Paul Ellis began showing a strong creative streak that turned exclusively towards music after hearing several classic European Electronic albums within a week’s time, which proved to be a profound awakening for him; this was the first time music had affected him so deeply. Although the inspiration was great, Synthesizers were very expensive then, and using them to create seemed too far out of reach at the time. Paul began studying Classical, Ragtime, Jazz and Folk music, later playing bass and guitar in a few rock bands, but always dreaming of recreating that sound he heard in his head that was so uniquely tied to synthesizers. 

In the mid eighties he bought his first few synths, added multi tracking, and from that point on has found his perfect expression in the world of animating electronic kaleidoscopic music where the morphing tone colors are as important as the melody, harmony and rhythm. Paul continues to release albums in a style that blends French Impressionism, German Electronic and American Minimalism, forging his own unique touch in the genre. 

Paul was a founding member of the synth band Dweller at the Threshold and has also released several solo works and collaborations with artists such as Steve Roach, Craig Padilla, Rudy Adrian, Nemesis, Ron Boots and Otso Pakarinen.

Between Shadow
and Light
by Neil Patton

 

AV's Spotlight Review

Between Shadow and Light by Neil Patton AV Spotlight CD Review

Between Shadow and Light is Neil Patton’s 4th album since his 1998 debut album Horizon and it is obvious that Neil continues to grow as a composer and a musician with each subsequent album that he releases. The new album was recorded on the Yamaha C7 grand piano the same as his 2012 album called Hammer & Wire which probably accounts for the amazing richness of the sound captured on this new release. Between Shadow and Light features 13 original compositions that run for 51 minutes as they gently nudge the listener to contemplate the emotions that naturally rise to the surface of their consciousness and to reflect on life as it was and how it is in the here and now. Neil’s new album is very appropriately named Between Shadow and Light as this is the journey the listener will take with the music as their guide. The path is one that traverses the middle ground of shadow and light dipping into each but never lingering in one or the other because that is the way life is… a mixture of the two.

The opening song on Between Shadow and Light definitely falls into the light category and is a perfect way to open the door to the listener’s feelings of childlike innocence and of simply enjoying the day that is unfolding before them. I thoroughly enjoyed this song as an opening statement that happiness is something that stays with you even though you know deep down that not every day will be as carefree and light. It simply assumes that somewhere along the line there will be shadows that might temporarily obscure the brilliance of the sun and leave you in the twilight with only the memories of the light to comfort you as you move towards the next sunny day.

Deep Sleep
by Liquid Mind

 

AV's Spotlight Review

Deep Sleep by Liquid Mind AV Spotlight CD Review

As a long time listener of Liquid Mind aka Chuck Wild I have to admit that there is something about the music that he composes that simply harmonizes with the body and mind’s natural vibrations and just allows you to relax and destress to a remarkable degree. That’s not to say that other artists’ music doesn’t accomplish the same thing at times but with Liquid Mind compositions it doesn’t appear to be happenstance that each album reaches that goal almost naturally. In fact, I have come to expect that kind of reaction to listening to the music that Chuck Wild composes as Liquid Mind.

Chuck’s latest release called Deep Sleep is no exception to that rule. This album is a follow up to an earlier release on Real Music called Sleep and seeks to walk the same tonal path as the previous release so as to offer a second CD specifically composed and mixed to enhance a person’s ability to drift into a state that will allow them to achieve a most restful night’s sleep. Most artists would find the fact that their music puts people to sleep as being less than desirable but with Liquid Mind’s music that is high praise and I must admit that the songs on Deep Sleep will help you along that very path.

AV's Reviews Other Voices

Journey Home by Raphael Groten reviewed by Keith Hannaleck of New Age Music Reviews

The first track I had the pleasure hearing from this talented man was “Sweetness,” which is included here and it was also a featured track on our Rate The Tracks site. 

This album gets in touch with our natural surroundings and with the most important element, the giver of life and water. “Black River,” “Waves” and “Ebb and Flow” (the ebb and flow of life?) are three that will push you in the right direction or downstream if you will. Music, water, all-encompassing nature, this is life and everything in existence.

In these Storms II by Dave Preston reviewed by John Shanahan of Hypnagogue

“One guy, his guitar, a bunch of effects, and a whole lot of soul. That’s the equation behind In These Storms. Looping and layering his way into bright, uptempo post-rock melodies, Dave Preston follows the roadmap he first laid out on Be and Soundtrack for Motion. I feel I have to note up front that through the many times I have listened to and enjoyed this album, both in repeated review listens and in shuffled listens to my entire review queue, I’ve found that I enjoy it slightly more as an element that pops up to shine in a mix."

Letters From Far Away by Heidi Breyer reviewed by Michael Debbage of Mainly Piano

Only another two year lapse and once again we are invited to another recording from the delightful and adventurous pianist Heidi Breyer. Last time around Breyer pushed the envelope with the addition of a few vocal performances. This time out she wanted to strip it down to create her first solo piano album however decided to make it a double album concept with the second disc presenting the same songs fleshed out with various instrumentation. The results are magical.

Next by Jeff Oster reviewed by Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck of New Age Music Reviews

Ever think of what it would sound like if Pink Floyd joined forces with Miles Davis? Well that is the sound of Jeff Oster as people described him over the years. Personally I love both of those artists, they were building blocks to our musical legacy and idolized by generations of listeners. Jeff Oster is an acclaimed trumpet and flugelhorn player that has been bestowed many honors over his career. After giving his new release Next a good listen I can understand why. Somehow he has been able to take jazz, funk, ambient and new age and make it a unique and compelling sound all his own.

Androcell

 

 

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.

New Releases and Ambient Visions in 2014

I'm going to take the time to post this to AV page just to see if we can get this down to system so that new releases can be give their time in the sun on the AV page. I have set up a new e-mail address on AV to handle just new release announcements that might find their way to me. The address to send to now is newreleases at ambientvisions dot com. I realize that spammers will probably still pick up this address but no sense making it any easier by making it an active e-mail link. Now what do I want sent to this address. Good question and I'm glad that you asked.

I always feel bad when I see a new release or something that was a new release a couple of months ago and I heard nothing about it until months later when I ran across it on a radio playlist from one of the charts that I post on the website. Had I known about the release in advance it would have been on the site either on the front page or on the new release list for the current release year. I would like to encourage artists to submit new release info to the above e-mail address to make sure a release gets posted on Ambient Visions. The bare minimum of info that I would like to have sent to me would be the artist name (believe it or not sometimes that is difficult to tell if I have not heard the artist name before), the album name, the release date month/day/year. I try to order the list by release date on my new release lists to help people see what is coming out this week so they can plan their purchases. It would be nice to know if the album is self released or if there is a label involved. Links are nice to so that I can post them right along with the announcement to make sure potential listeners find their way back to your sites. Facebook, homepage, twitter, bandcamp, soundcloud, wherever you'd like listeners to check out your music. If you don't include them in the announcement then I may or may not have time to go find them. If you want to promote your music please send me complete info.

Love's River
by Laura Sullivan

 

AV's Spotlight Review

Love's River by Laura Sullivan AV Spotlight CD Review

Listening to Laura Sullivan reminds me of why I fell in love with piano music in the first place. Her new album is called Love’s River and it is marvelous entry into her growing catalog of musical works. While it is true that she had a little help on this album including the likes of Will Ackerman, Jeff Oster, Nancy Rumbel and Suzanne Doucet there is no doubt as to who is the focus and the heart of her latest release. With help of that caliber it might even explain why I felt transported to my early days of exploring the new age and ambient music that Windham Hill and Narada used to put out as I listened to the beautiful compositions that poured out of my speakers.

I want to apologize to Laura for taking so long to deliver a review of her work that obviously deserves all the praise that everyone has given it including mine being added in this review. There was a feeling and a spirit that characterized the music that came out in the early 90’s from those labels mentioned above and it made that music special in my mind and the songs have endured in my heart to this very day. Laura’s playing on Love’s River is as close as I have heard anyone come in a long time. There is an innocence that Laura has captured in her poignant compositions that immediately reach out and touch your heart. Not in a heavy handed way but with a soft caress that stirs your emotions and brings them right to the surface in no time at all. The music that she has created on Love’s River is delicate and skillfully woven into a blanket of sound that you just want to wrap yourself up in and sit quietly gazing out the window and being in the moment.

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 .
