Heliosphere is a
set of spacey ambient drones, more cold than dark. These were produced using
processed improvisations recorded on 14th March 2007, originally
intended as background drones for another project. As they were not
used, further overdubs, recorded on 20th and 29th April 2007, were
added to complete the compositions.
Heliosphere is available to stream
and download free from the Internet
It is also now available to purchase from the merchandise
EMU XL7, Kawai K5000R, Korg Mono/Poly, Oberheim Matrix 12,
Sequential Prophet 5, Sequential Prophet VS, Waldorf Microwave II,

'Deep Space' is certainly the descriptive word here! I totally feel
it ! It doesn't strike me as cold per se but maybe cold in that Deep
Space is just that way. The feeling is definitely deep and all
inclusive. Massive soundscape! I was listening to the Flash player
then went for the 192 bitrate one so I could get the full impact. I
could imagine this in a planetarium with awesome visuals. Very cool
and well produced too.
downloded your album Heliosphere. Nice mixture of high and low
drones, more diverse than 'Zeta Reticuli' and for me certainly more
listenable. Seeing the development I can imagine you want to use
some sequencing in your next recordings. Looking forward to this.
Interstellar Space is by far the strongest piece. Cold winds blowing
between icy glaciers and yet there is e sense of warmth. You say
these are cold drones, I disagree, I think you are a lyrical
romanticist painting a warm picture.
female alien cry (thats what I think it is) in solar wind has stolen
my heart. Nice album - best tracks; solar wind and interstellar
space. And indeed a forward progression from zeta reticuli. (maybe
because of the more versatile equipment?).

This is the kind of desolate sound that would emanate from

incredable sounds. Thanks for the album.

there, Downloaded your album. Congratulations!!!! really great work
(would love to buy a copy in a case).
Space music. A heavy duty arsenal of synthesizers was used to
craft these highly suggestive, swirling sounds.
Too much change-up to be drone. Not quiet enough to be ambient. This
is a trip into space, where meteors and comets are flashing by.
That was lovely. Thanks for making it

Space Is Deep Indeed! - Another line in
the dark sand of ambient is crossed with this second sequencer free
Modulator ESP recording. Lets hope that these become at least an
annual event! Excellent stuff.
