Steve Brand Catalyst and Sunprints Back in Stock

Since we discontinued creating CDR versions of the releases on the Relaxed Machinery label, some of
the label’s artists have created their own CDR editions. Here are two from the always-popular Steve Brand.

Steve brand – Catalyst (CDR)
(Relaxed Machinery section)
(Price: $12.99 CDR)

“Catalyst” – four cavernous, ethereal, sentimental and lilting inscapes timing in at just over an hour. Instruments used on Catalyst include, keyboards textures, shakers, voice, conch, kora, bamboo chimes and field recordings.

Steve Brand says:

Catalyst was started in 2010 and completed in late 2011. 2010 reduces to three, which in a spiritual sense indicates catalyst, fecundity, magic and intuition. 2011 reduces to four, which indicates Earth, groundedness, solidity, calmness and home (which were a welcome respite from the previous years experiences). I was (and am) experiencing all of these, sometimes all at once, and I continue to feel their presence at work in my life. Because of the power of these experiences in my life, I felt compelled to make a group of songs that embodied the feeling and presence of these forces—which I think are powerful tools that can act as a catalyst for growth, meaning and an expanded way of living and being

Steve brand – Sunprints (CDR)
(Relaxed Machinery section)
(Price: $12.99 CDR)

Sunprints is comprised of five quiet, and sometimes intimate, atmospheres focused around nature. Sunprints is dedicated to my mentor, Nadja, and accomplished with kora, zither, kalimba, shakers, bells, cymbals, gongs, conch, bone, cane and cedar flutes, didgeridoo, whistles voice, accordion, gutterphone, field recordings and keyboards. The final track, Sunprints, was created just for this 2012 re-release…. (MORE/BUY)

Hypnos Store Add: City Skies 2011 by Gerber & Vnuk

We’ve just added a disc from Tony Gerber and Paul Vnuk Jr. to our store:

Tony Gerber & Paul Vnuk, Jr. – City Skies 2011
(Miscellaneous section)
(Price: $12.99 CDR)

The original music on this recording is the result of performing live for the City Skies 2011 festival in Decatur, Georgia. This is the debut release from these two ambient music veterans. The magic of music is in the moment and this duo performance is a prime example of that… (MORE/BUY)

Latest Two Robert Rich CDs Available

Two new ones at the Hypnos store, the two latest from Robert Rich:

Robert Rich – Nest
(Robert Rich category)
(Price: $13.99)

Latest from Robert Rich. “NEST begins with the kind of resolve many other CDs end on. With consonant chords and spare piano notes Robert Rich begins a wonderful journey through eight distinctive music tracks and contemplative moods. Although some of Rich’s work seems to dispense with the idea of beginning, middle and end, NEST does possess a vague compositional arc. Using steel guitar, bells, flutes, synthesizers, piano and environmental recordings, alone or in various combinations, Rich realizes beautifully detailed
soundscapes from just a small number of sources.”
– Chuck van Zyl/STAR’S END…

Robert Rich – Medicine Box
(Robert Rich category)
(Price: $13.99)

Ecstatic, shamanic, surreal, spiritual: Medicine Box may be Rich’s most dynamic album yet, an adept blending of technology with the ancient. Cheri Chuang’s wordless crystalline voice graces three songs, with traces of Persian inflection. Deep basslines hint at dub, while analog synth skitters and chuffs the outlines of a rhythmic grid, propelled forward by pulsing north African drums. Sustaining guitars bring a psychedelic edge. Cello and reeds echo plaintively in the distance. Rich’s sparse piano
adds droplets of modal jazz to this dark tea….

Many One-Copy CDs Added

Lena has been busy adding lots of used, single copy, and former promo items to the Hypnos Store. This used to be something I updated all the time, and over the last few years, the random odds and ends have accumulated like a giant snow drift up against the wall at Hypnos HQ.

Look HERE to check out what we’ve got. Newest additions are toward the bottom.

We’ve got CDs by Hafler Trio, Ian Boddy, Tetsu Inoue, Flying Saucer Attack, The Orb, and lots more. When they’re gone, they’re gone, so if you see something you want, you’ll need to snap it up.
