earman018 - Ananta - Nasti With "Nasti", Ananta's first release on Earth Mantra, the artist has created a collection of dark textural ambient pieces perfect for deep contemplation. The music moves slowly but with a very strong purpose, not unlike molten lava slowly rolling down the side of a mountain, consuming everything in its path, yet spawning fresh new life in its wake. This release by Polish ambient artist Ananta continues an idea the artist explored in his previous release...

earman032 - mystified - Children of Space Children of Space, by prolific electronic music maestro Thomas Park, aka mystified, reflects in some ways a return to more ambient material by the artist. Having crafted several ambient works in the years of 2003 through 2006, Thomas took some time away from the genre, working on noise and drone music. However, he grew to miss smoother, quieter sounds, and found himself back on the ambient track in early 2008. Which is not to say that Children of Space...

Gordon Macmillan, the artist behind the Tange project, never ceases to amaze us with his patient approach to the ambient arts. He cites Tangerine Dream as one of his primary influences (hence the name), but to be honest we feel he has a very distinctive voice of his own, with very little of the formulism the Berlin School sometimes engenders.

Someone goes to sleep, and dreams of a shape or form that guides them through their work the next day. Components are placed randomly on a table, in hopes that generative patterns will form. A card is drawn from a deck, and that card, randomly chosen, provides artistic direction. In this piece, chance takes...

This piece was composed purely to listen to while reading or in a bath (where the artist claims he spends an inordinate length of time). With this music playing it is like having a long soak beside a warm open fire, or like curling up with a good book in a semi-darkened room with just a puddle of light...

Given that Earth Mantra has always insisted on releasing full-length albums, "LP's" in...
