Mystified- Dead Souls [treetrunk 223]

“Dead Souls” is a mid-form ambient drone piece using as its source only the spoken word readings of the conclusion of Gogol’s “Dead Souls”, as read by a volunteer from LibriVox . To create the string-like effects, heavy use of the Tone to Noise feature of Paulstretch were used while processing the spoken word.

Jack Hertz- Complex Silence 25 [treetrunk 222]

Even if you’ve only been paying slight attention to the world of netlabel ambient music, podcasts, radio, and artists the past few months, the name Jack Hertz has probably crossed your reading and listening paths. Jack approached me and Thomas in the early part of 2012 with an idea for the Complex Silence Series that we listened to and liked, but didn’t feel fit the CS concept exactly right. I encouraged Jack to try again, thinking that I might hear back from him a few months later. Instead, I heard back from him in a matter of days with the submission you are about to enjoy. I can only describe these four tracks as sublime and meditative. You can simply soak into them and relax and let the music do the rest, the way pure ambient music is meant to do. These tracks are definitely a journey, with their own sense of movement and purpose that (to my ears at least) is a hallmark of Jack’s brand of ambient music. And if you’ve never listened to a Jack Hertz ambient release before, I hope this release serves you as an appropriate introduction to his work and gives you a desire to hear more.

Forrest Fang- Seeds Of Memory EP [Treetrunk 200]

“This EP is intended to complement the Summer 2012 release of my Projekt CD, ‘Animism.’ These pieces are examples of algorithmic and fractal sketches that I often use as ‘seed’ material for more detailed and extended pieces. ‘Prism,’ ‘In the Serene,’ and ‘Early Rain’ were recorded this past year while I was working on and finishing up ‘Animism.’ ‘Kepler’ and ‘Wildlife’ date back to the late 90s, during the time I was recording what would later become my first Projekt CD, ‘Gongland.’ This release is dedicated to my past and present friends in the algorithmic and fractal music scene, including Dave Strohbeen, Yan Terrien, Phil Jackson, John Dunn and the late Tim Conrardy. Special thanks to Thomas Park for graciously providing a home for this release and to photographer Mark Mushet for the cover art.”– Forrest Fang, 2012
