I've been listening and enjoying some of the earlier and perhaps a little more obscure Altus albums in the past week or two. Easily one of the very finest composers / producers of ambient. Sweet, complex, satisfying, orchestral, as much depth as you could ever want in an audio recording. The quality of the productions and the imagery his music evokes is sheer bliss. Right up there with Thom Brennan and Steve Roach. Rock on dude!
I wish there was a better profile picture than just the guy behind it, something that reflects the music would suit it much better.. I uploaded a photo and everyone should like it so it becomes the profile picture.
I never git tired of saying this... ALTUS RULES! I absolutely love The Time Collection. This 2 CD set proves, yet again. That your music is every bit as good as any out there. Roach, Stearns, Eno, Brennan, Serrie, Rich. BAR NONE!
Finally circling round to artists I haven't heard in a while, specifically one's I connected to [group]ambiOfusion[/group] back in 2007...and HOLYmaster-of-ambient! I just listened to Amid Dreams and I can barely tell where the chorus picks up, and where it ends--Wow, what a mesmerizing mix of sound, man!! Superb doesn't even begin to sum it up=awesome work Mike, thank you for such a rich tapestry and for sharing!
