Second album, ahem, ‘released’ : Sacred Geometries

edited September 11 in Creations

I realised recently that I had a fair few noises out in the world now, made over the three years since I got into this Dark Ambient lark, and not all of them are completely terrible.

So I took the leap and made this second attempt at immortality more than just a BandCamp effort, stumping up the cash via Distrokid to have it as a sonic tombstone so it can hang round and haunt people I don’t like on Spotify as well, long after I’m pushing up the daisies. That is, if Spotify can survive the coming Ecopalypse, of course…

So anyway: this is it. All tracks previously demoed here, of course, and on my SoundCloud, so no surprises .

I’ll probably fillet a few more out of my, ahem ‘back catalogue’, over the next few months, so I can bin them off SoundCloud to make room for more doomy noise. You lucky, lucky people… :)

‘Vanity publishing’, I think they used to call it, back in the day…

Comments

  • Congrats, Svetlovska. I call it “archiving”. Something for 25th century musicologists to uncover in the sonic heap.

  • Ha! I think they’d have to be pretty desperate if they were working on my stuff :) Although I suppose it’s possible that I am in fact an undiscovered future genius of atonality, and don’t even know it… ;)

  • I could be mistaken, but isn't Distrokid one of the ones that only keeps your stuff on the platforms as long as you continue paying them?

  • You can pay a one off ‘legacy’ fee for them to leave it up even if you close your account with them. It’s 49$, so not cheap, hence, as I said - vanity publishing:

    “Leave a Legacy costs a one-time fee of $49 USD for albums (or any release composed of two or more songs) and $29 USD for singles. If you're not sure you want to opt-in at the time of release, you can always go into your releases and add it later in your career.”

  • Ahh cool, thanks for clarifying.

  • Congrats!

    Thank you! I just checked, and as of this morning, 0930 GMT, it’s available on both Spotify and Tidal, you know, just like a proper rekkid ‘n all. :) Amazing what ‘pay to play’ can accomplish…

    Now I just have to work out how I get to write an ‘artist’ blurb for these sites, upload some moody photo implying I hang around ruined warehouses at midnight playing with alien technology and ancient runes. (The warehouse needs probably to be in a forest, and back lit by powerful spotlights.)

    Then I can call myself a ‘Producer/Artist/Shaman’ , lie about how the sonic inspiration for my work came from my personal involvement in the dismantling of the Berlin Wall with a pneumatic drill on the big night it all came down, sit back and…

    …Find that it notches up a grand total of two plays, from sympathetic friends, over the next six months… ;)

    You got it all written there already, the kids they're gonna love you !

  • Just had a listen to the album, and it’s a thing of beauty.

  • Thank you! One listener down; one to go! Seriously though - thanks for the listen, and the kind comment. It is much appreciated.

  • Consider me one of the lucky one.
    Very nice work, and congratulations on another lifetime and beyond achievement.
    Keep the ball rolling, and enjoy the ride.
    Thank you.

  • Glad you made an album; It's great for my walks. I'm following you now on Bandcamp.

    @ReneAsologuitar : thank you! @Stochastically : that’s great news! :) I will be adding more there in a month or so. I’m with you in spirit: One of the hidden advantages for me too is that it means I can finally listen to my own stuff uninterrupted when I’m on my constitutionals (weirdly, I do like listening to my own stuff).

    And @rottencat : what can I say? Made me laugh out loud. I didn’t think anyone had actually visited my studio before… ;)

  • Just listened all the way through on a decent speaker and it was darned good 👍
    Other than possibly Datura I didn’t find it ‘dark’ at all.
    Favourite was possibly ‘Blooming … confusion…’ followed by Quiessence.
    It all hangs together well so fully justifies the album status.
    You’re pretty good at this stuff 😊

  • Nice! Congrats on the album release!

  • Very nice to see you so productive! How’s Vampyr going?

    I’m not sure about anyone else, but that’s where I’m at with it 😎

    That looks right on time!

  • Indeed, just ten more days of this to bear 😍

  • congratulations @Svetlovska !
    nice bells in fourth track 👍
