Valley Of The Sun Publishing is a publishing company that has been around for some 30 years now. They are known for releasing some of the most beautiful ambient synth/new age music that you never heard. There are tons of these tapes, most lost to the ages. Our Goal is to find 'em.
It seems to be true, I saw it on Sutphen's website. I wonder if that means we can hear a digitally remastered version of that great album?
"Metaphysical Music by Upper Astral with Subliminal Suggestions by Dick Sutphen
Track 1:Skybirds is structured for you to transcend levels of consciousness, soaring high above the earth as a bird. Seagulls, the sound of the surf, and an acoustic grand piano are used with a synthesizer which creates soaring arpeggios and subtle French horn-like sounds. You’ll feel like you are circling, circling and soaring through a vast emptiness of beautiful music that supports you and soothes your soul. Subliminal voices are saying, “up, up, higher, higher, fly with me,” and similar phrases.
Track 2: Seagulls and surf are combined with an “Ohm”-sounding synthesizer bed and a gentle, melodic French-horn sound to create a soothing, sustained environment."
This album is probably Daniel Berthiaume's best work in my honest opinion. Great music and it really does make me think of the moon, the stars, and night time. perfect for listening to while lying outside when the crickets are out.
This is a straight-up new age album featuring David Storrs and an artist named Tony Selvage. This one is beautiful and it's definitely worth a listen. The two work very well together in these songs.
(Sorry about the brief description, it's late and I have had a couple albums to put up tonight.)
This time we have a film soundtrack done by David Storrs. Far from a new age album, but it showcases some great dark ambient and spacey electronic music to hear. I have it uploaded in two seperate parts for you to download. It's a change from what I usually have here, and I've been sitting on this album for months and forgot to upload it, so here it is.
Altered-State hypnosis/meditation tape by Dick Sutphen, features music from David Naegele's Journey out of the body on track 1, Upper Astral's Crystal Cave: Return To Atlantis on track 2, and unknown music on track 3. Truth be told I haven't tried using these for meditation or anything yet but I plan to.
This tape features excerpts taken from David Naegele's "Dreams of Atlantis", but also includes more music I have never heard before. It's worth a listen, it has subliminal messaging in it I assume- I haven't listened close enough yet.
Happy Cinco De Mayo! Today we have a great spacey electronic album from Karl Schaffner (With a hint of guitar and traditional instruments!) It is entitled "Flying Carpet" and it was released on Isis in '84/ It has some great tracks on it, such as the ethereal "Passage", the jovial "Sailing" and the guitar backed chilled out "Longitude", among many others. I certainly recommend a listen. Lothar Grimm helps out on this album, much like some of Karl's past works I have posted.
