    Plus it can be a 'try before you buy' option if you decide you want to buy the cd from say discogs. Find out if you like it enough to pay the asking price!


    Exactly what I'll be doing. They even put Gate/Sol up. Sounds lovely :)
  • thirdsystem about 1 year ago

    Think this one merits a mention on here;

    Bridge To Imla - The Radiant Sea . Michael Brueckner and Hans-Dieter Schmidt have created something very special here. Deep oceanic ambience with hints of melody and mystery. Highly atmospheric , stunning in fact. Released on the Winter Light label which looks very interesting. I also got the Seetyca release - Winterlicht , dark deep winter sounds.

    Krystian Shek - Al-Qāhirah just been checking this out on bandcamp. This is on the urgent list. Eastern influence , reminding me off the desert orientated Silence tracks on FAX blended with beautiful, drifting ambience and supremely crafted production. Another stunner from the Carpe Sonum label. Wonderful album art also.

    Was the namlook YouTube page being copyrighted? It seems to have up and vanished.

    Yup someone had it taken down, probably not for any of the Namlook stuff either. Guess it wasn't going to last forever..

    Yup someone had it taken down,


    It's a damn shame it's gone. David Moufang posted on Facebook that he was disgusted someone posted the whole catalogue on YT and used the Namlook name for the account. Maybe something came from that?

    It once more gives us the following question... how do you keep the Fax catalogue alive so new people can discover It??
  • Kracker 11 months ago

    That’s a good question. The music isn’t available anywhere, no Spotify or nothing. We do have Abstructure’s music videos but he can only make so many of those.
    Wish there was a legit YT channel where we knew all the revenue went to Pete’s family and everything
  • WildDragon. 11 months ago

    Who kept contact with Pete's wife and daughter? Is it Michael Zosel? We could help keep up his legacy and his family would still benefit from it financially.
  • ear-rational 11 months ago

    The music is still available on iTunes US. Peter was very anti-streaming, but it does generate revenue, so the music should be available there. I'm in touch with Peter's wife on and off and will find out the current status.
  • thirdsystem 11 months ago

    thirdsystem edited 11 months ago
    Personally I was gutted when they removed all the FAX from iTunes UK . Noticed a couple of years ago on an iTunes update there were loads of albums still available on the US version, unfortunately it quickly defaulted back to the UK version.

    It's been said many times on here, such a disappointment Pete's music and his labels output is not available to purchase , for his family benefit and all the other artists who put so much into their music. Absolute travesty . Hopefully eventually it will be resolved, if anyone is even looking at the issues.
  • WildDragon. 11 months ago

    I bought a lot of albums from the FAX labels but I also missed out on a lot of them. I was able to download most of them when I was on Emusic.com. But I needed to own physical releases so I started buying again from the Discogs marketplace. Ear-rational store is great for collecting too :)
  • mickchillage 11 months ago

    Indigo Egg_Aten-TXT51
    ----------------------------------------
    Ishq morphs into Indigo egg whilst evaoporating ringo star with a lazer gun in favour of miles david style drumatronics to create an album of eqyptronica and
    psytropic tripped beats , sounds and vortextural anomalies

    A spaceship ride across Noospheric dimensions.

    Channeled direct from the minds eye of Sun ra on for this momentus occasion Indigo egg creates an album of deep moods,heart warming novelty and the sound of tropical sunrises on distance planets + a hint of the extra terrestrial dna we all know and love .

    Its in us all, Its music from another dimension designed to take you back in time to a future we have yet to behold .

    Alio Die_Kalisz Concert-TXT52
    ----------------------------------------------
    Alio Die is considered one of the precursors of ambient music in Europe
    His music can be described as a very spacious, experimental ambient, combined with many electro-acoustic elements.
    This album was recorded at the Kalisz Ambient Festiwal in Poland.
    A beautiful journey from start to finish.

    Check out a sample of it here

    Hello and welcome to the first Zeit report.

    Zeit is a new label transmitted from the minds of Ishq and Nacht Plank.
    Deep transistor rituals.Dawn border crossings recorded on vintage mediums using analogue circuitry.Pathways into funnel web substrata's.
    Microfilms of memory,neumonic codex and langauge spaces.
    Andromeda strain telecom beams of distant synthetic worlds.
    Music to slow down and dream into.

    The first release on Zeit is a double cd by 'Dividenthal & Aumgn' called 3-Methylmorphine Melt.
    The album comes housed in a double digipak with 6 page booklet.

    3-Methylmorphine Melt
    "Pure vintage analogue circuitry under the spontaneous control
    of Dividenthal and Aumgn ,recorded live to tape,a moment
    in time,pure analogue circuitry and sound exploration.
    The essence of these sonic explorations is mood,a subjective and
    personal thing ,these works are not about content and clever music production but evocative mood,pure tone and conjuration
    of place,memory,moment ,past and future ceremonial sonic paintings and portals into the imaginary"

    Pre order the album here.
    zeit.org.uk
    Limited to 150 copies worldwide.

    Please note Zeit is a non digital label and will only release music on compact disc.

  • FemmaGenton 2 months ago

    Just noticed nobody's mentioned the most recent Off Land album in here - On Earth, released last year on Stasis Recordings. I know his Carpe Sonum and Psych*n*v*g*t**n releases were popular around here, and I reckon this is maybe his best to date:

  • ear-rational 2 months ago

    I'm probably qualified to answer this. (=

    This has been a difficult year on many fronts. In January, I moved my parents 2000 km to a memory care facility near me due to my dad's advanced Alzheimer's. He had a good 7 months, during which I was able to see him every day that I was not traveling for my day job, before passing away in August. We also had two other deaths in the family and the aforementioned work travel which can be consuming at times.

    Kracker also has a day job, so working on Carpe Sonum can be catch-as-catch-can for both of us, and while one of us is usually busy while the other one isn't, the last three months have been busy for both of us. We started out the year with a flurry of releases, in an attempt to beat back the backlog of releases, and we've got a number of releases in various stages so I hope to close out the year with another flurry.

    As to what's coming up...

    Iso Le is a stunning album, a bit of an homage to Namlook and exotica, and we should have the art nailed down soon so that it will go the pressing plant.

    Breathe is another stunner, a long-form ambient album from techno wizard Massimo Vivona (we have another ambient album in the can from him, as well as a techno album that will be released on the Novum sublabel).

    Si's double album Across the Ether harkens back to Escape a bit, in that the first disc is ambient, and the second is beat-oriented. I've been sitting on this one way too long, but I hope you all will find it's worth the wait!

    Yamaoka first made contact with me about three years ago, so A Frozen Stream is another release that's been in the queue way too long. A somewhat different sound for the label, but it's a great album so please check it out.

    The raison d'être for Carpe Sonum is to offer a home to "orphaned" FAX artists, so when they approach me with an album, it becomes a priority such as the recent pre-orders by Massimo Vivona and Lorenzo Montanà. A number of other releases by former FAX artists are in the works including Dr. Motte & Gabriel Le Mar, Ishqamatics, Dividenthal & Aumgn - ɒsɪˈleɪʃn, and Thomas Heckmann.

    So suffice it to say, we have plenty of great music on tap, including followup albums from Carpe Sonum alumni Aythar, Sven Kössler, Si Matthews and Eric "the" Taylor, Airwaves, a solo album from Eric "the" Taylor, and more.

    If you don't hear from us for a while, feel free to reach out by email.

    Dividenthal and Aumgn-Primordial Innocence

    Cat No. ZEIT 3
    Limited to 100 numbered CDs
    Released: Nov 2018
    Lee Norris and Matt Hillier return for another Zeit release.

    Primordial innocence in music, which sets sound apart from the untamed drones that roam the forests, resides somewhere deep within sound,and will continue to do so until sounds last breath. We can bring out this undying innocence within us,perhaps we'll chance upon it in a moment of unrealised happiness, which catches us unawares and brings out an uncontrollable smile to our ears...Or maybe not!!
    Cd contains 2 bonus mixes from Ishq and Dividenthal
