Confluence is expertly crafted, pure ambient, unadulterated by beats or melody. Even though it only came out 4 years ago, it's something of a personal classic for me. Kinda surprised it doesn't show up on his charts, but it does stand apart from his other work.
@cpdomina & @ xXTransystemXx Thank you so much, both of you. That album is absolutely incredible! One of my favorite collaborations for sure. Do you know if it will EVER be released to the public? I mean, I could snag it through Audacity, as i'm sure alot of people have already done, but i'd feel much better if I could have it legitimately :)
@WavesofMagenta Officially, nowhere. The album wasn't released to the general public. You can preview the album on this webpage, though: http://blog.pedigreecuts.com/ Just click on the album cover (Ulrich Schnauss & Jonas Munk - PED A010) at the header of that page
@exotic248 - go for Manual's collaboration with Syntaks ("Golden Sun"), it`s my favourite after "drowned in light". you'll be delighted. than try his work with Ulrich Schnauss (Ulrich Schnauss & Jonas Munk - "Epic"). his first two albums are still very good too (especially "Until Tomorrow").
Jonas is releasing a new album this April. http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendId=84814935&blogId=529487029
Sounds like David Sylvian meets Boards of Canada, with the Manual edge. Great stuff!
"He just puts out generic ambient stuff now that sounds like background music to some cheap relaxation cd. Where's the emotion gone Jonas?". I complately agree with CraigEvanson. Ascend is my favourite one.
