The Journey Continues

A sombre nighttime reflection.

One continuous generative ambient drone split into two parts.

The music is generative:
Each note repeats in a long loop. The length of each note loop is slightly different so the music never quite repeats itself.

Reviews of The View From The Quinta

This lifts my spirit, and it brightens up my day... it's so amazing..! Makes me wonder and fantasize how a collaboration The Ambient Visitor or Bing Satellites with Steve Roach would be....oh yes! Both release one masterpiece after the other. Hope this album will be released as a digipack one day...

Fantastic drifting realease from "The Ambient Visitir." This, generative work, draws you into a gentle narrative that soothes the savage that latched onto you during the course of the day.

One of his best!

Reviews of Thirteen

From "One" to "Twelve," The Ambient Visitor has managed to use generative music to produce lush, mysterious, dark, foreboding, and even awe-struck beauty in his works. This LP "Thirteen" is no exception.

The growth and learning is astounding throughout the series and it is this "process of evolution" that is often the most valuable with a collection such as this..

Brian Bourassa on Bandcamp

As with many of these fine artists, these tracks enhance my meditational or higher conscious experience, and this makes it all so worth it. Favorite track: Asclepius.

Twelve is a single track album of peaceful longform ambient music.

The music is generative:

The single track is named after 4486 Mithra, an Apollo near Earth asteroid, continuing the tradition from previous albums.

Reviews of Twelve

A very deep and mysterious journey. I love the very deep base humming as they are uncharacteristic of most ambient music. The "loneliness" i spoke of with regard to the predecessor, "eleven," is still present, but with less intensity.
For generative music, these works continue to grow and bode well for the "generative" style of ambient music.

Reviews of Eleven

Perhaps the loneliest and most somber of all in the collection thus far. Still, it is well composed and offers a unique perspective of this emotion.

Reviews of Ten

A continue into more intricate forms. There is a wealth of peaceful drifts that are at times interrupted by mystery and impending adversity only to return to a new blissful state of being.

Brian Bourassa on Bandcamp

Nine

The original unreleased album, extended and remastered.

While there were albums called Eight and Ten, Nine was mysteriously absent.

However, a version of the album was remixed and had some strange stereo jiggery pokery going on and was released as part of the Complex Silence series.

Complex Silence 24

I am very happy that my ninth album is part of the Complex Silence series, released by Treetrunk and overseen by Phillip Wilkerson.

The music on this album started out as part of one long generative piece.
Each note plays in its own repeating loop. Each loop is of a slightly different length, so the music never quite repeats itself (or at least, not for a very, very long time).
I then slowed down the left channel of the stereo mix ever so slightly so that on the second track, 'Interamnia', the music starts of at the same point but slowly drifts apart. On the first track, 'Ceres', the music starts off drifted apart but meets in the very middle of the track, only to drift apart again by the same degree by the end of the track.

The two tracks follow my tradition of naming tracks after objects in the Solar System. Ceres and 704 Interamnia are large asteroids.

The original version of this album, entitled Nine was eventually released 3 years after this album. You can find more details and download that here.

Reviews of Complex Silence 24

A note on "Nine" which was chosen to be part of the Complex Silence Series #24, it is an absolutely great work! I'd recommend checking out all the Complex Silence Series. There are currently 40 releases.

Reviews of Six

This work sets me ever so lightly hovering over the surface of the landscape, nudged along by the base drones as if by the movement of gentle waves. To add to this I am swirled about like a small dust storm and gently laid back to the waves again. Very nice!

Reviews of Three

Maybe it's me, but I feel like here in stage three of our journey that we have entered the atmosphere of some distant planet in another galaxy. I am oh so gently drifting over the the landscape as if I was a cloud. A very blissful ride it is as I observe the wondrous landscape below me.

Amazing stuff here...

Reviews of Two

Journey Two takes us from a very calm and peaceful space to one with more energy and activity. There are a multitude of magnificent awe inspiring encounters. But there is some presence of mystery and danger along the way as well, so seat-belts may be necessary. Keep an open mind and allow the journey to unfold itself to you.

Reviews of One

If you like Bing Satellites, then perhaps one of the "alter-ego's" of Brin Coleman...this being The Ambient Visitor, may also be of interest.

With this first release you are transported to the edges of our solar system, where soothing deep drones and wispy hollow washes take you to a very calm and relaxing place.

There are 13 releases and I hope to get to them all. And if they are all as good as this one, then I have some spectacular journey's ahead of me!
