Released on ad21music on the date of the label's 10th anniversary, this release sees Argentinean Bruno Sanfilippo in collaboration with the prolific German drone and overtone musician Mathias Grassow. Beautiful, soft, elegant piano melodies and subtle, enveloping drones. "Ambessence Piano & Drones" sets a new level of blissful dreaminess. Hazy, gossamer breathing strains with the lightest of touches hang weightless, shapeless as if the very air itself has been transformed into to music. Sometimes the underlying sonic textures are so transparent they might simply be environmental recordings, a thickening of emptiness…

Electronic legends and like-minded drone masters Alio Die (born Stefano Musso) and Mathias Grassow conspired to create one of 2003's finest ambient releases. Expanding Horizons, a double-CD set, features deep drones, smooth samples, gentle rhythms, and subtle melodies. Die recorded his basic tracks in '99. Grassow added his touches and arranged and mixed the final master in '01 and '02. Klaus Wiese (singing bowls, zither, Indian strings) and Carsten Agthe (percussion) added their expertise as well. So, these discs feature three of the greatest drone artists ever - Grassow, Die and Wiese…

Robert Davies was born 1964 in Pennsylvania, USA. Grew up listening to progressive bands, art rock, electronic & ambient music. He attributes the occasional darker aspects of his sound to watching too many horror films as a youth, and the more meditative aspects to a deep appreciation of nature and beauty. He strives for an ethereal ambience, something dark but pleasant, deep and entrancing. "Sub Rosa" is a fine collection of meditative and flowing, drone-based ambient, with a rare beauty and delicacy - reminiscent of the best Mathias Grassow.

Genre: Ambient | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Celestial Dragon Records (CDREC-06)

This 3 x CD concept album contains exclusively produced soundscapes from 26 artists/projects from 10 countries, all inspired by the relationships and interactions between mankind, environment and sound over the seas and continents. "Nekton Falls" is the scientific term used to describe the process of dead sea organisms dropping to the bottom of the ocean, rotting and eventually turning into food for a new generation. Well-known ambient artists like Mick Harris aka Lull, Mathias Grassow, members of Kapotte Muziek, and young talents transformed into music their experiences of how eating habits influence an artist. Special interludes were conceived for each track, combining them all into an uninterrupted stream of music.

Deep Nature Mysticism by Tomas Weiss/Mathias Grassow and guests. North Passage (2008). "Norvegia" opens the disc, a low drone bed with occasional sounds overtop, a very beautiful atmospheric piece that brings to mind the Nostromo disc by Sleep Research Facility. Very dark and somewhat ominous, "Norvegia" is inspired in its approach at conjuring a dark atmosphere. The transition into "Arkona" is nearly imperceptible, but as time passes it becomes clear that new elemements have been added to the sound. A haunting call, a deeper drone, we've clearly entered new territory but it all feels to be part of the same journey, a logical step in our travels…

Echoing Delight (1993). Echoing Delight is a classic set of electro-tribal minimalism from Vidna Obmana (aka Dirk Serries). It features Djen Ajakan Shean and Tom Kloeck as guest performers. Serries created this deep soundscape just before his introduction to Steve Roach. Serries' work up to this point had been almost exclusively electronic minimalism. This CD shows hints of what is to come. Tribal rhythms and textures are interspersed among the atmospheres and ambient airs. The ethnic timbres are subtle but they are there. Serries' sound design creates a nice balance. It is distinctly minimalist and clearly tribal. This classic CD will appeal to fans of Steve Roach, Mathias Grassow, Klaus Wiese, Amir Baghiri, and Robert Rich…

Electronica, Ambient, Drone, Minimal | MP3 CBR 320k | 204 MB

Collaborative effort with experimentalist and ambient composer sokpb avabodha is now available for everybody. Quite an unusual experience: each has recorded his part independently, playing with the material proposed by partner. On the output has turned a rather grim static canvas in three parts, almost 30 minutes each. WMRI's synthesisers laid thick substrate in each track, while sokpb avabodha's guitar on the contrary has brought some airiness and space in the general picture. The project is also broadly representative of meditative, ambient direction of modern electronics. This album in collaboration with Sokpb Avabodha represents pleasant background ambience, designed longer for regular listening, and for meditative contemplation. Recommended to everyone who is a connoisseur of such renowned musicians as Steve Roach, Klaus Wiese and Mathias Grassow.

El-Hadra, The Mystik Dance is the rhythmic trance meditation of the sufis, performed by Klaus Wiese on zither, Ted de Jong on tabla and Mathias Grassow on keyboards. The pulse of the rhythm is very important because it corresponds with the breath and heartbeat at the same time. Starting slowly then accelerating and intensifying El-Hadra is breathtaking, a whirling ecstasy..

The connection between Wales and the harp is a long-standing one, and Mathias's part in it began 12 years before his Harp Concerto was written, with Improvisations for harp solo; even a Welshman has to learn how to cope with such an idiosyncratic instrument. He learned his lessons well—even using semitone pedal glissandos in the second movement, and he keeps the harp audible by alternating its solo passages with orchestral ones or, when the two are working together treating the orchestra with a light touch (the celesta is used as a particularly effective companion to the harp), at other times resorting to the more familiar across-the-strings sweep. Two movements have declared Welsh associations: the first juxtaposes but does not develop three themes the second is a 'bardic' elegy; the last is simply ''joyful and rhythmic''. The whole makes pleasing listening appealing to the emotions and imagination rather than the intellect.
