30 Classic and Modern Art Skateboards

Like skateboards ? Like classic and modern art ? I know I do, so here is a little bit of a fun game I made.

You can move your mouse over each image to reveal the artist and painting. Why not try see how many you recognize before you move the mouse though. Enjoy dudes !

3d Fractal Art Animation

Bookmark and Share

3d fractal art
If you like 3d fractal animations then get ready for a real treat. This is a wonderfully animated 3D fractal movie created by Jérémie Brunet ( aka bib993 ) titled "Like in a dream II". The video was originally created to accompany one of the popular TEDx talks presented by Bryan Alvarez about the Human Atlas project. The project is aiming to create the first ever 3D interactive atlas of the human body that scales from organs to atoms, and depicts the dynamic living processes of the human body.

"The mission of this project is to celebrate the beauty of living systems. Imagine exploring a version of Google Earth where you could see all of Earth's animals roaming the planet, oceans and weather moving in real time, and travel deep into the Earth's center. If you can imagine this for the human body, you can begin to imagine the Human Atlas Project." - Human Atlas Project

Jérémie also has a rather excellent deviant art page with lots of 3d fractal images he has been creating over the last few years.

DJmix : Peter Fanai ( Basicnoise )

Bookmark and Share

basicnoise peter fanaiI don't often post other dj mixes on this blog but this one is so freakin good I just had to share it. This is an amazing mix from Germany's Basicnoise ( Peter Fanai ). At the age of five Peter started with classical piano lessons at the conservatorium. Aged just 13, he got his first synthesizer (Korg M1), resulting in an affection to electronic music. Around 1995 he got a groundbreaking mixtape with tracks from Sähkö, Basic Channel and Peacefrog.

Already in love with electronic music, these minimalistic and dubby tunes changed everything and he started to create his own tracks. After some releases with different styles as Peter Fanai, he came up with Basicnoise for pure minimalistic dub techno.

Psychill Radio - Psionic Geometries Vol 17

Bookmark and Share

Here is the DIFM PsyChill radio mix for November 2011.

There are a number of great new psychill CDs out at the moment including the excellent new "Ultimae Records" release "Ambrosia" which features a number of new artists and reflects a bit of a departure from the usual Ultimae sound of Aes Dana, Solar Field, CBL etc. Another release I'm really enjoying is "Ethnoscapes", the debut release from "Atmospheric Records". I don't know much about this new psychill label and their homepage is pretty sparse but this release is a pretty solid ( mastered by Aes Dana ) debut so let's hope they can continue their strong start.

Another great compilation to check out is "Nutek Reocrds" new release "Mira" which has some real gems on it from Abakus, Bohemian ( in this mix ), J.P Illusion and more. Nutek is best known for their psytrance catlaogue with a number of big psytrance producers on their roster including CPU, Painkiller and Azax Syndrome. This is a welcome departure and hopefully not their last. It reminds me of those psychill compilations 3D vision put out all those years ago "Module01" and "Module02" .

One more top compilation released recently is "Origins" by Lisbon's "Woorpz Records". This also marks a debut as Woorpz first psychill compilation and like the two compilations mentioned previously is a solid slice of psychedelic chillout music. If you like Origins I also recommend giving the "Around The Universe" EP by "Timescape" a listen.


Track / Artist
  • 01 Adou - Balance
  • 02 Generation Of Hippies - J.P. Illusion
  • 03 Igmatik (Tripswitch remix) - Abakus

Fractalic Design - Fractal Psychedelic T-shirts

I was recently contacted by Itay , a founding member of Fractalic Design with news about their new online fractal tshirt venture. If you are looking for some high quality fractal designs do check out their site sometime. They run a quality setup and the fractals themselves cover the entire tshirt rather than a simple design in the middle as you might find on Zazzle or CafePress.

The tshirts are not black light reactive, which is a nice change to be honest. Personally I've see too many of the black light tshirts over the years and they have become a bit too cliche. These shirts are something more unique and modern. It's great to see people putting their artistic hearts and minds into an operation like this. I hope they can continue to grow the business over the years to come.

Ambient Music Mix Download - PsyAmb 43

Bookmark and Share

Today's mix is the third in the minimal ambient mix downloads. This one kicks of with ISHQ's track "El Morya" which you can find on Celestial Dragon Recordings "Portals Of Perceptions" release from 2005. An excellent compilation overall. This was the closing track and plays out over are rather delightful 12 minutes ! I haven't included the entire 12 minutes in this mix so check out the track at CDRs if you want to enjoy some more listening time. ISHQ is brilliant so definitely check out their work if you have yet to do so - I don't think I've ever heard a bad tune from them.

pallersNext we have "Sound of Silence" by "Pallers" from their recent debut album "The Sea Of Memories". The release took three years to compile as members Johan Angergård and Henrik Mårtensson traveled the globe finding inspiration where they went. The result is a real gem of a release that deserves all the high praise is will garner over the years to come.

Both members come from the same small town in the south of Sweden, Åhus, and have known each other half their lives. One member has a love for ambient, trip hop and electronica while the other is deeply involved in the world of pop. Pallers combine these seemingly tricky components with such ease it almost seems effortless – turning it into something new - something of their very own. A must buy for any fans of of textural soundscapes and evolving melodies.

The third tune in this mix comes from "Lemongrass" ( Roland Voss ) via his 2011 release "Sirius", a mix of ambient, downtempo, chillout and future jazz styles. Roland has been making music for about three decades now. He made his start in the 1970s as a drummer in various bands and has continued making music ever since, becoming one of Germany's most prolific electronic music recording artists. With his brother, Roland manages record label "Lemongrass Music" which they established in 2005 as a way of releasing their own music and that of other artists they both enjoy. They label certainly has been busy with close to 20 releases this year and growing ! Here is a good interview with Roland from back in 2004.

time martin maps and diagrams"Maps and Diagrams" is the brainchild of Tim Martin, a highly esteemed ambient music producer who has released on a number of leading labels such as Handstitched ( his own label ), Expanding, Static Caravan and more.This track, "Fragments Of a Former Moon" comes from the Fluid Audio release "Cubiculo" of 2010. This was an exclusive mini release for Fluid Audio comprising of four tracks if I remember rightly. It is a tasty little release as it succinctly highlights what the Maps and Diagrams sounds is all about - wonderfully beautiful looping dreamscapes with infinite possibilities.

After Tim is a track from an artists I just recently discovered - Hummingbird. The album "Our Fearful Symmetry" from which this track comes is best described in the words of one reviewer as "an album of incredible poise, precision and elegance". Personally I found the album to be tinged with melancholia which makes for great listening on those bleak wintry days. You might struggle to find a copy these days as the album was limited to just 100 copies but you could try a used copy from Discogs but be prepared - it won't be cheap as I well discovered !

Next up is Sattyananda, a.k.a Nikhel Kumar Mahajan, with a lovely bit of ambient Indian music from his 2006 release "Internal Activities" of 2006 on DadA music. In 2005 Nikhel conceptualized an album Vande Mataram - which showcased Indian Electronica at its best. The CD was launched by Music Today. Following which he put all his energy into forming India's first electronic label, DadA Music. He went into the studio in the winter of 2005-06 and composed, produced and arranged 'Internal Activities'. He has skillfully incorporated traditional Indian Classical Instruments in the compositions whereby creating a timeless journey into the inner-self. I feel this album was overlooked somewhat by the psychill/psybient crowd who I think would get a real kick out of it. The DadA music website seems to be down these days so you might have to check out places like Psyshop or SaikoSounds if you want to pick up a copy.

Not to be confused with the Jaia of goatrance fame, Jaja ( not the second j ) is the work of German artist Jana Rockstroth. this track comes from the free to download album "OUM". This was released through Cyan Music, the German label, not the Australian Cyan Music that is an offshoot of Psy-Harmonics ! Pretty cool release if you ask me. Grab it now over at Cyan netlabel.

Next we have a couple of big names in the ambient and electronic music scenes - Carbon Based Lifeforms, Thomas Fehlmann, Brian Eno, Aes Dana and Vibrasphere,.These are all artists that get a fair amount of track time here at PsyAmb so for the sake of keeping this post short and not boring you all I suggest checking them all out if you have yet to do so. Quite frankly they are all essential listening and defined the past present and future of ambient and psychill music in their own ways.

cipher - Theo Travis and Dave SturtSo let's fast forward through the mix to "Cipher" . This tunes comes from the CD "No Ordinary Man" released in 2003 on "Hidden Art". Cipher - originally formed in 1996 to compose a soundtrack to Alfred Hitchcock's silent classic 'The Lodger' - is the combination of the two well established artists, Theo Travis and Dave Sturt. Theo is well known for his work with the likes of Porcupine Tree and Gong ( awesome group !) , Dave is a long time producer and member of Jade Warrior. These two guys have done so much work over the years across so many projects that it's impossible to list it all here. For a quick run down try the Cipher website. This album I can't recommend enough. I listened to it for hours on end back in the day when it was released. Absolutely sublime music.

If you like your ambient music with a bit of a moody feel that wraps you up in a warm aural blanket then look no further. "Stars Of The Lid" with their track "A Meaningful Moment Through a Meaning(less) Process" and the "Hammock" tune "Maybe They Will Sing For Us Tomorrow" must be two of the most amazing pieces of ambient music ever produced You can listen to both tracks on YouTube so check them out and see what I mean. The albums that both the tracks come from are absolute classics in the genre and should not be missed.

We wrap up to do with the short and sweet "Neil's Theme" from Robin Guthrie and Harold Budd. This comes from the soundtrack to the movie "Mysterious Skin" in which a teenage hustler and a young man obsessed with alien abductions cross paths, together discovering a horrible, liberating truth. A worthwhile film with some excellent performances by Brady Corbet and Joseph Gorden.

Well that's it for this mix. I hope you enjoy listening to it. I've been listening to it while writing this post actually and I'm enjoying it more each time. This is just the third mix in the ambient music downloads series so if you haven't caught the other ones check the links below or go to the mp3 mix downloads archive from the link on the right page. See you all next time and have a relaxing, ghostly halloween weekend.

Top 10 most relaxing songs

What are the the best relaxing songs ? Neuroscience research group "MindLab International" are in the business of finding out why we react the way we do to certain stimuli. A recent research project of theirs was the compilation of the world's top 10 most relaxing songs.

The study was commissioned by a British manufacturer of spa and relaxation products so there was a big commercial intent aiming at the viral video market behind all this.

Anyway, what is most pleasing about the findings is that topping the list is one of my favorite bands - Manchester's Marconi Union with the most relaxing song ever.

Carefully arranged harmonies, rhythms and bass lines help to slow the heart rate, reduce blood pressure and lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Marconi Union worked with sound therapists to create the best of the relaxing song, which also slows breathing and reduces brain activity.

Mind relaxing music researchers played the song to 40 women and found it to be more effective at helping them relax than songs by Enya, Mozart and Coldplay . I never found those three that relaxing anyway. If anything, listening to Coldplay usually induced stress !

Studies found Marconi Union's tune "Weightless" was approximately 11% more relaxing than any other song and even made many of the women "drowsy" in the lab.

Dr David Lewis-Hodgson, from Mindlab International, said: "The results clearly show that the track induced the greatest relaxation - higher than any of the other music tested.

"Brain imaging studies have shown that music works at a very deep level within the brain, stimulating not only those regions responsible for processing sound but also ones associated with emotions.

"In fact, Weightless was so effective, many women became drowsy and I would advise against driving while listening to the song because it could be dangerous."

Richard Talbot, from Marconi Union, said: "It was fascinating working with a therapist to learn how and why certain sounds affect people's mood.

"I always knew the power of music but we have previously written using gut feeling."

Here are the top ten most relaxing songs that came about as a result of the research conducted by Mindlab. Click on the track to follow a YouTube link to each song. There are some decidedly pop flavored tunes here. 
It would be interesting to know what the team's exact listening pool was in the first place but I guess we'll never know. Now keep in mind this a list made by scientists, not necessarily lovers of modern electronic chill music ( they include the most relaxing classical music in the list ) so keep an open mind with the best relaxing songs here.

1. Marconi Union - Weightless

2. Airstream - Electra

3. DJ Shah - Mellomaniac (Chill Out Mix)

4. Enya - Watermark

5. Coldplay - Strawberry Swing

6. Barcelona - Please Don't Go

7. All Saints - Pure Shores 8

8. Adele - Someone Like You

9. Mozart - Canzonetta Sull'aria

10. Cafe Del Mar - We Can Fly

So there you go - Marconi Union - the most relaxing music in the world, at least according to one study ;>

3D Psychedelic Art

Bookmark and Share

Continuing with our psychedelic art series, today I have another interesting psychedelically inspired artist that recently caught my eye. Based in Miami, mixed media artist Jen Stark has created a series of wonderful, swirling, psychedelic art sculptures using colored paper. This is some cool visionary art. These creations must take forever to create. They would make for great 3D psychedelic wall art I think. Apart from creating these incredible sculptures Jen is also a talented drawer and video producer. To see more of her work and other psychedelic pictures visit her website.

What is ambient music ?

Bookmark and Share

what is ambient musicWhat is ambient music ? A friend of mind asked me this question the other day and it struck me as odd that I couldn't find a definition that I found satisfactory for my own mind. In other words, I wasn't happy because I found myself saying "it's this ...but it's also this...it's not this nor this but then again it could be if ... ". So I've decided to open this question up to all psyamb listeners ... what is your own definition of ambient music ?

Is it , as one of the most recognized of ambient artists Brian Eno said, music that can be either "actively listened to with attention or as easily ignored, depending on the choice of the listener", and that exists on the "cusp between melody and texture" ? I kind of like this definition myself. That line "cusp between melody and texture" evokes an ambient music feel.

With so many sub-genres of ambient music these days including dark ambient, illbient, ambient techno, ambient house, isolational, nature ambient and organic soundscapes is it even possible to come up with an overall answer for what is ambient music ? Drop a comment below and let me know what you think.

Myotas Online Art Generator

Bookmark and Share

Another recent psychedelic art discovery of mine has been the fractal art generating software of Myoats. Now I know there are number of high quality fractal generators available these days but what makes this one different is that it can all be done online. Strictly speaking these are not true fractals, perhaps mandalas would be a better word to use. However the software is open ended enough for you to create any kind of artwork imaginable.




What is cool about it is that it allows anyone out there to create mandala like art without any need for artistic skills whatsoever. Just click and drag your mouse around the screen and the application will instantly create reflections for you resulting in a nice symmetrical slice of trippy art work. Pretty cool huh !

Psychedelic Scientists

Australian resident and graphic designer Simon Bent has produced a series of psychedelic pictures that celebrate famous scientists of years gone by. The work displays a decidedly 1960's psychedelic art feel reminiscent of old 60's psychedelic bill posters or the colorful world of Peter Max.

Here is a nice little video featuring an interview with Alex Patterson from UK electronic ambient music legends "The Orb". This clip comes from the BBC2’s excellent history of rock & roll series ‘Dancing in the Street’. Alex seems to be pretty busy of late with a number of projects on the go including a album with Lee Scratch Perry that sounds very tasty indeed.

The Art Of Isaac Abrams

Bookmark and Share

Another recent art find has been the work of Isaac Abrams. I was very pleased to run across Isaac's website as I find his flowing, bubbly psychedelic artwork to be somewhat similar to my own work at times. Mind you, Isaac is a far better painter than I could hope to be at the moment 8)

Isaac was born and raised in the New York area. He is a self-taught artist with an academic background in literature, history, science and psychology. He founded the first gallery of Psychedelic Art in the world in 1965.

He began working as a self-taught painter in the beginning of 1966 and then worked as a sculptor in the 1970's. During the 1980s he also began extensive work as an animation artist.

Abrams was the former owner of Coda Gallery. The Coda Gallery was noted for its introduction of Psychedelic Art into the mainstream of American media consciousness. He studied in Austria under the tutelage of Ernst Fuchs whose school and method of painting runs in an unbroken line of students and teachers from Albrecht Durer to the present.

He begins his work with a series of loosely conceived juxtapositions and then discovers in those juxtapositions the metaphysical and cosmic concepts which are so often expressed in his art. Right on !

Check out more of Issac work at the Isaac Abrams website.
