FREE https://www.twitch.tv/ambientping .. pantslessparandroid vs Laughing Drone . What began as banter in the chat of a recent Ambient Ping event on Twitch, morphed in to an unexpected collaboration between Mikrosleep and Shimmer Crush. The former dubbed himself pantslessparandroid while the latter adopted Laughing Drone, both names unfolding rather organically from those casual comments in the chat and inspiring what came next. A seasoned musician with a large oeuvre and body of experience, Mikrosleep paved the way as the collaboration unfolded, providing Shimmer Crush a direction to start from in what is her first music writing collaboration. Those loose guidelines fed one off of the other and a truly experimental blending of sound emerged. We are pleased to introduce pantslessparandroid vs Laughing Drone. .. Mikrosleep is an audio project which explores aperiodic things periodically to hypnotically invoke the transition into phenomenological awarenesses of consciousness. The pseudonym is derived from the smallest quanta of sleep, occurring when one simply slips into unconsciousness for brief moments. Dasein. Soundtrack of his research in Experiential Psychology. Robertson Holt is a polymath artist who works in media and healthcare. He has been performing for the ambient ping (periodically and aperiodically) for the last 18 years. https://mikrosleep.bandcamp.com https://subatomi.com .. Shimmer Crush produces starkly beautiful electronic music in an organic and shifting process currently defined by “enormous, edgy, deep, hypnotic sounds’ (Melissa Devine). Pulsing rhythms thread through dreamy soundscapes that merge in layers of aural textures following a path often unknown but always informed by the world around us. Shaped by this experience, then further explored through live performances, a rich sonic palette has emerged from which new and dynamic compositions have evolved. These elements come together to form the basis for the unique Shimmer Crush sound. shimmercrush.wordpress.com latest release: https://componentrecordings.bandcamp.com/album/shimmer-crush-gemini Plus more AMBiENT ANNiVERSAY SURPRiSES including the premiere of Kindness (transcendent mix feat. Carrie Eliza) a video by Shimmer Crush. Back with the release of her first official video since the release of the Depths of Experience and Dwelling (in a shroud) videos in 2016, Shimmer Crush presents Kindness (transcendent mix feat. Carrie Eliza). This track, which was released on the Seeing Things compilation from Crime League, marked the first time Shimmer Crush has worked with a vocalist.
