    Microcosmos (Chill-out & Ambient) records is becoming slowly one of my most favorite label... So good albums one after another...
    I've been listening to 'Noraus - Type 1 Civilization' lately few times and damn what a fine album it is!
    The atmosphere is floating between earth and space which I really do love.

    Lorn got a reaction from timeisart in news - 2016 - W10 (February 29 - March 6) - release of the week poll   
    Enjoyed quite a few of the releases this week.
     
    Stand outs for me:
     
    Sideliner & Aviron was quite good.
     
    Tiki Masala was great.
     
    Harold Sleeper came in as the surprise of the week.
     
    Aythar solid ambient electronica
     
    r.roo did a great job on a lot of the remixes.
     
    But if I had to pick a top it would be Noraus. Beautiful!
     
    Unlike most it seems, I didn't like the EE releases. I guess its obvious from most of my posts and comments I'm not a fan of the glitch and bass stuff. But hey seems like most everyone else does!

    this track is taken from their second album, Perfect Symmetry, an album that I find to be a modern take on the dark/experimental FSOL aesthetics

    I really enjoyed the Zaatari soundtrack. Lovely orchestral flow and it reminded me a bit of the Ink soundtrack. It gets my vote.
     
    Apart from Calicofrost which I agree with timeisart on the soft psybient remark, I'm sorry to say this batch of releases is just lacking something.

    The Mystery Of The Yeti album The Mystery Of The Yeti, Is another great example of oldskool Psybient. This time a bit later at 1996. 

    A favourite of mine:

    A Welcome To All Extraterrestrials

    Eat Static - Implants (Album) [1994]

    This album is for sure a early Psybient record, some tracks more than others. Fuck, it's amazing actually.

    I usually build up some sort of textural sound just to have something to work around. Then add rhythmic synth sounds, percussion, then drums, then bass. All in an 8 or 16 bar loop.
     
    Then leave for a while.
     
    Come back to it. Remove the crap bits. Work on the loop some more until it's grooving.
     
    Leave for a while.
     
    Come back to it. Be very critical about what works and what doesn't. When I am satisfied that the core of the track is worth expanding on I will set up very rough sections and jam different synths etc onto different sections.
     
    Leave for a while.
     
    Come back to it. Be very critical about the crap parts again.
     
    Start to blend the different sections into one full arrangement.
     
    Start mixing the track (production, eq,compression etc).
     
    Add more parts.
     
    Leave for a while.
     
    Come back. Be very critical again.
     
    On the first listen through for a while you immediately know what works and what doesn't. Have confidence in your judgement.
     
    Add all the topping off parts. Fx sweeps, backwards crashes etc...
     
     
    Bus tracks to group buses. Compress widen eq at bus level.
     
    When you can listen to the track all the way through without reaching for an eq or feeling the need to fiddle with anything then you know you're done..

    I've always seen psybient as a subset of goa-trance, myself - not especially related to psytrance, it incorporates organic/cultural/(outer)world sounds which gives it its unique characteristics. 
     
    Early goa sounds combined with ambient sound and other chill genres such as dub.
     

     
    Here's an Alan Parsons project track featuring Shpongle.
     
    Artists like Eat Static, Suns of Arqa, and later Shulman were also instrumental in bringing in modern psybient sounds. 
     
    I think the beauty of psybient is that it is so inclusive of other genres while still predominantly using the 4/4 time signature - and it's a constantly evolving sound.

    I always thought The Infinity Project's Mystical Experiences album was considered to be one of the first real psybient albums released in 1995. but you could probably say it started before then by a number of ambient artists. definitely somewhere around the early to mid nineties though.

    I often start with inspiration from a track i've really enjoyed recently, and I set about trying to recreate a thing I like from that, be it the groove, a particular type of sound design, style of drumming or whatever..  the process of getting that down usually leads to more experimentation and ideas and it flows from there, usually sounding nothing like the track I set about imitating.  
    Generally I'll try get a 16 bar loop of drums, bass, and synth befoer I move on.  Then I'll try changing the synths or bass. get a few different versions down and pick the best one.  Usually scrap a lot of things that weren't good enough.  
     
    So generally its heavily based around experimentation! Ocassionally I have an idea and plan a track from start to finish before i start, but thats pretty rare
     
    I tend to work on lots of tracks for several years rather than starting and finishing one and then moving on to another.  This gives time for new inspiration for directions to take these tracks, and allows improvements in my skills to be reflected in all tracks rather than just the most recent.

    as platonicliquid suggested :
    "I would love to see more music production resources and discussions, perhaps we could commission some 'master classes' with psybient producers? "
     
    i propose to post here questions related to production (techniques, howto, vst to use, etc) - and we contact artist to propose them to answer.
