What inspires you?
a lot of things do, right now I'll answer that music does, a lot of times dark ambient / drone stuff, it really helps to build the mood and atmosphere in my head. Usually if I start getting ideas or visions for things related to what I'm listening to, I'll keep a note of the track and thoughts for later use!
ARTIST NAMES NOW.
Hey you might like a track by Towers of Asia called "After Hours"
PM me about how to magically get it for free.
well, Kammarheit is one of my favorites, he has a side project called Cities Last Broadcast which is also good. Most recently I was listening to Tho-So-Aa's album called 'Minus' which was providing some inspiration and mood for Memory Of A Broken Dimension.
Inade is another really good one, it isn't quite as lulling and serene as Kammarheit, has more rhythm and really strange sounds, I recommend the album 'The Crackling Of The Anonymous' or 'Samahdai State' but really they're all superb.
There's a lot of good stuff out there.. and a lot of mediocre, so some of it can get kinda cliche or get old fast for me, but anything off of Cyclic Law records or Loki Foundation is guaranteed to be excellent IMO.
Then there is the "other side" of drone which is more like Tim Hecker or Aidan Baker / Nadja, kind of the guitar based stuff noisy feedback stuff, I recommend 'An Imaginary Country', its a beautiful album.
Bad Sector (mostly space-related recordings), Olhon (the album 'sinkhole'), and Lull are other artists names I keep coming back to as well..
