Rolling Ambient/Modern Composition/Drone Thread 2023 Edition

My copy of this has finally arrived from Bleep.

Rewarding myself with a couple of gummies, couple of cans, bit of soft lighting and a nice sit down.

Sounding real nice. Fuck yeah


Love it even more thanks to the reissue. Definitely taken it for granted over the years.

I usually keep up with this thread but failed this year. Does this thread do its own album of the year list?

Yep, we usually do one.

Just finishing listening to it now. Really sublime. The experience has been especially lovely in that it feels relatively fresh, what with the remaster and it having been a good few years since the last listen, but also wonderfully familiar and nostalgic. A true classic.

Yeah last year I ran it basically for the whole of December and put the results on New Year’s Day.

Last year’s list:

These two new Ossa & Ian Epps tracks are totally gorgeous

New Maria W Horn record next year

She really can’t do any wrong, I don’t think. Perfect music.


Damn, this is beautiful. There’s a whole album on the way at some point.

It’s a Hollie Kenniff & Kazuma Okabayashi collaboration.

Catherine Christer Hennix has passed away :pensive:

Not sure if this album has been mentioned?

Will be in my aoty top ten for sure


Think I put it in a new releases thread maybe? Can’t remember, but absolutely love it.

This that she released last year is perhaps my favourite thing of hers

That’s very sad. I hadn’t realised that she was ‘as old as’ 75, so that’s ‘better’ than my initial reaction to the news, if you know what I mean, but 75 is still young, IMO. What a clever lady. Still very grateful for this thread introducing me this year to Solo For Tamburium. I shall listen to it this week in her honour.

Very much enjoying my first listen of this. Predictably.

Very delayed response from me, but glad you made it and enjoyed it!

I got in a little after you, but also managed to get a beanbag on the floor, one of the last ones I think. Loved the set-up - all gigs should be that relaxing! And the sound was excellent. Imaginary Softwoods were also my highlight - loved the visuals as well as the music.

I’ll also be looking out for more Bleep43 events - especially daytimes ones!

Does Spring Still Hide its Joy? is one of my most played albums this year so this is excellent news
