Cedarstone - Vanishing

New track entitled 'Vanishing' by Cedarstone, now playing on M.P.R Ambient.

 

 

'Vanishing' - the new calming track from Cedarstone, released on April 26th, 2024.

Transatlantic duo Cedarstone's new track Vanishing is a dreamy instrumental piece designed to take you to a calm place. A piano plays a simple but emotive melody while ambient layers wash over you in the background: perfect for relaxing, working, or walking in nature.

Fans of Olafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Federico Albanese, Niklas Paschburg, Goldmund, or Two Lanes will recognise the influence of contemporary classical and electronic musicians in Cedarstone's work: old-school composition techniques and theory meet modern production elements to create something new and beautiful.

Cedarstone is UK-based Chris Durston and US-based Reed Reimer. If they don't get distracted by other creative projects (they're currently hard at work on a horror role-playing game with a full soundtrack and tie-in novel), they hope to have their first full album out in 2024.

Celestial Lakes - Dances Of The Paper Elephants

Released today, the new track by Celestial Lakes entitled 'Dances Of The Paper Elephants' now playing on M.P.R Ambient.

 

 

Celestial Lakes is set to captivate the ambient music scene with the release of "Dances Of The Paper Elephants" on April 19, 2024. As the first single from the anticipated album "Shadows Cast From Hands of Clocks," due May 31, this track invites listeners into a serene, melodic journey through instrumental soundscapes. Promising a unique blend of soothing and inspiring tones, Celestial Lakes aims to offer an auditory experience that stands out for its creativity and emotional depth.

Celestial Lakes emerges as a captivating force in the realm of ambient and post-electronic music, weaving together the ethereal strands of ambient guitar, the expansive horizons of post-electronic, and the mesmerizing depths of drone music to craft soundscapes that transcend the ordinary. At the heart of Celestial Lakes is an invitation to listeners: to embark on a journey through sound that serves as a bridge to the infinite, to spaces within and beyond that await discovery and connection.

Each composition by Celestial Lakes is more than just a piece of music; it's an odyssey into new sonic territories, promising explorations filled with both tranquility and intensity. The debut EP, Shadows Cast From Hands Of Clocks, is a profound narrative woven from the fabric of sound itself, exploring existential paradoxes and the intricate dance of light and shadow in our lives. This collection of tracks stands as a testament to the power of music to delve into deep, reflective states, urging listeners to confront and contemplate the vastness of existence and their place within it.

Drawing inspiration from luminaries such as Perry Frank, with his lush, ambient soundscapes, and Lowercase Noises, known for his delicate, emotive guitar work, Celestial Lakes crafts a unique sonic experience. This influence is evident in the textured layers of sound and the emotional depth that characterizes each track. However, Celestial Lakes is not just a reflection of these influences but a distinct voice in the ambient and post-electronic scene, marked by a commitment to creating music that resonates on a profound level with those who listen.

Celestial Lakes is a journey that invites listeners to lose themselves in the vastness of sound, to find solace in the ethereal, and to connect with something greater than themselves. It is a promise of escape, of exploration, and ultimately, of connection to the infinite nuances of human experience.

Steve Paul - We Sing Your Infinite Visions

The track 'We Sing Your Infinite Visions' by artist Steve Paul, is now playing on M.P.R Ambient.

 

 

England based producer, singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, who has worked with number one artists and Brit Award nominees. 

Steve Paul's specialism is producing collaborations gathering 2 to 100 artists for ethereal projects with beautiful harmonies in many genres, primary most things chilled and dreamy with lots of reverb. AURORA covers and remixes are one of his latest projects, amongst frequency music. And now he aims to make a triple album inspired by Nils Frahm, Jon Hopkins, Olafur Arnalds and Royksopp fresh with beautiful ethereal vocals with positive mystical messages.

Steve has been making music his whole life, since exploring the piano with his concert pianist grandmother, who he dreams is loving the album from heaven. He went on to start song writing on computers with his school piano teacher at age 16, before you could record audio. He spent another 29 years perfecting his craft at 50 instruments and as much software and plugins he could afford, whilst developing his talents in making his own style of psychedelic dreamy videos.

The track 'We Sing Your Infinite Visions' is taken from the album 'We Flow Through Infinite Dreams Pt 1: Space Healing', Released March 8th 2024.

Track List:

1) Show Me Your Infinite Visions (Artist & Composer: Steve Paul), 2023
2) We Flow Through Infinite Dreams (Space Journey) (Feat Space Hippies, Artist & Composer: Steve Paul, Maris Rei, Ben Robins), 2024
3) I Now Remember Infinite Stars (feat Xavier Keys, Artist & Composer: Steve Paul, & Xavier Jameson), 2024
4) The Infinite Bubbles of Spacetime (Artist & Composer: Steve Paul), 2023
5) Is Going To Infinity (feat. 100 Voices, Daisy Chute, Beth Rowley) (Artist & Composer: Steve Paul, Sharon Daboul), 2023
6) Through Glistening Mountains, Infinite Utopia (Artist & Composer: Steve Paul), 2024
7) Sacred Flow Jam To Infinity (feat Space Hippies) (Artist & Composer: Steve Paul, Maris Rei, Ben Robins), 2024
8) We Sing Your Infinite Visions (feat Kaya Rose Green, Carolin Nobles) (Artist & Composer: Steve Paul, Kaya Rose Green, Carolin Nobles), 2023

Whilst producing and mixing the album, Steve felt cocooned in his lounge studio, affected by his mental health, struggling with multiple diagnoses, such as M.E. / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, likely ADHD and autism, claustrophobia, agoraphobia, bipolar and depression. He was trying to drown himself in beautiful sounds to escape from the noise of the city, the sirens and other noises outside triggering his mental health, with COVID times making things worse.

So he transcended into a world of dream-like creation, with the intention to create a healing, meditative masterpiece for himself and to send light and love to as many people as he could reach.

Sink to the Sea - All the Colors of the Dark

Latest release from "Sink to the Sea" entitled "All the Colors of the Dark" now playing on M.P.R Ambient.

 

 

"All the Colors of the Dark" is a guitar-focused slow, evolving, atmospheric track taken from the recently released self-titled album.

California instrumental post-rock, psychedelic, ambient, experimental, art-rock band Sink to the Sea has just released its self-titled debut 9 track album. 

Recorded live with very few overdubs, the band is composed of Marc Bobro (basses, euphonium, theremin, synths), James Van Arsdale (guitars, synths, drones), and Noah Whatoff (acoustic and electronic drums, samples). They are based in Southern California but do not like the sun. 

Sink to the Sea’s debut album is sonic exploration. Its music is adventurous. Compositions are combined with extensive improvisations that allow for interplay. It creates moody, sensuous soundscapes that are soundtracks to small moments in time. They are inward and outward-facing meditations, conveying meaning without words. The music is inspired by the natural world, borrowing from visual art forms such as collage and kinetic abstract sculpture in the way sounds are built and used. 

Horror movie soundtracks, Frippertronics, free jazz, electronica, and psychedelia all combine to form evocative and thoughtful pieces that delve into varied subjects such as dreams, war, enlightenment, darkness, discovery, communication, and our six senses. It is their hope that these works evoke feelings and ask deep questions—their layers revealing more and more over time.

Tewksbury - Vika

Newly released single "Vika" by artist Tewksbury, now playing on M.P.R Ambient.

 

 

Tewksbury – the project of Hamilton, Ontario musician and sound artist Douglas Tewksbury– releases the new, ambitious 4-part collection of long-form ambient synthesizer and tape loop works, Floes: Volumes I-IV, on 21 March 2024 on Tridek Records,  'Vika', the first single is out now.

This is slow music for the Anthropocene, a collection of long-form works recorded over 2023. Each of the 16 tracks unfolds over its 10+ minute runtime: different melodies and textures emerge, intersect with one another, build, and wither over minutes. It's over 3 hours of glacial ambient music.

“I’m deeply inspired by the natural world, and time spent in the slowness of the Canadian and Arctic winter, when much of this album was recorded. These are uncertain times, for our people and our planet, and I wanted to make art that’s a reminder to slow down, to reflect, to think about where we are and where we’re going.”

These unhurried, long-form works were recorded on very long analog tape loops on vintage ¼” multitrack reel-to-reel machines. Repeating patterns emerge and dissipate, notes drift and blend, melodies enter and pass, almost imperceptibly. And imperfections abound in this very-much alive record: Tape splices begin to fail, loops stray off the spools, reels’ speeds begin to drift.

All of this is a reminder of the hand-made quality of the compositions, and the passage of time becomes an instrument, itself, as these works bring the listener on a meditative, personal journey.

Tewksbury says, “I wanted to put out a collection of slow, meditative music, long-form works that take the listener on a journey that reflects on humans and our place in the environment, on nature, on the North, in a suite of four movements of long-form compositions. It’s a lot of music. I guess I’m still surprised at how much I had to say.”

“I like doing new things, and I’m not interested in repeating myself from project to project. Here, with the works of Floes: Volumes I-IV, I wanted to make a suite of tape-based works that uses the passage of time, of loops on the tape heads over and over again, to reflect on our natural world, of the bloom and withering of the seasons. I suppose I just wanted to give listeners a sense of slowness, evolving, collage-based music, of belonging to this moment. And in the end, I hope that it brings folks some joy and contemplation, and reminds us of our place on the earth in this moment.”

The work is available on streaming, digital, and limited edition 4x cassette box set.

Glen Neff - Eternal Awakened

"Eternal Awakened" the new single by Glen Neff, now playing on M.P.R Ambient.

 

 

Santa Fe musician and painter Glen Neff fuses his love of instrumental melodic improvisation with a steady hand in the digital studio. Blending spacial sound sculptures and globally influenced electronic music with melodic jazz improvisation. Ambient/chill is one definition given to this music, Neff's work will tickle that perhaps dormant spot in your ear canal in some pretty intriguing ways. While there is a heft of traditional African, Punjabi-Bhangra, Eastern European and Middle Eastern influence running through Neff's rhythmic and vocal-sample veins, Neff deftly adds more contemporary meat to the musical muscle, with layers upon layers of synth, live instruments, effects, drum programming and out-of-left-field genre inclusions. It takes a careful listen to sift the latter out, but it’s worth the ride if you want a mellow escape.

News Flash! - Glen Neff's music is being released with the Monroe Institute for use in study/meditation programs.
