Bloodmoon Rising by Steve Roach

Steve Roach is a leading proponent of ambient drone music. This piece is inspired by an eclipse of the moon, the blood-colour of which comes from the absorption of blue sunlight by the earth's atmosphere as the moon passes into the shadow of the earth. Our earthly sunsets get their colour by this same process.

Kaguya Probe - live studio jam

Beuatiful OTB (Outside The Box) music from Gary Hayes. "Loosely based on a Cm harp piece I wrote in the 90s - in fact I was about to play the harp in real time with this at one stage - for another session methinks!"

Waldorf Nave iPad synth + Elektron Octatrack, Analog 4

Another of my demonstrations of Nave's sound design possibilities. Accompanying are some loops on the Octatrack made using Omnisphere and Access Virus C. Plus some arpeggios from the Analog 4.

Canopy "1988" - Ambient Post Rock

Gosh another new genre! One to sit alongside Folktronica. How is one brain alone meant to keep up with today's world? Actually this is really beautiful music and probably deserves a more poetic categorisation. Not sure I'm the man to invent one right this moment.

Canopy is the project of Ryan Vanden Heuvel.
