Verisimilitude (The Philosophers Mix)

Here is a break from Space Race Ambient.

My title/idea for the piece come from the meaning of the word, as published on wikipedia. I think that their terms are as good as any, and are more focused with my intent for the soundscape.


The scape is a change for me. It's in keeping with 'The Long Sleep' piece, but has not words. There may be others in the particular vein of Ambient. Lets see what happens over the next while.

As always I value any thoughts on this piece or the ideas behind it.

Like what I hear
But too many needle pins on the chair to fully appreciate it tonight. Downloaded for future listens. Some space influences may be there, but definitely more earthbound ;-)

(Can't say I understood the term, but thought maybe there would be sort of two more different versions of one song put together into one. I've got one of those (Metropolitan) and it makes a nice experiment...)

Take care (and good night).

Hi Henke......
I hope you got over your pins and needles. There's nothing worse!!!

I've amalgamated a couple of similar versions of one of my other pieces, way back, so I know where you're coming from. It has to be just right or the effect is a mish mash of nothing.

Yes. This piece is more earthbound. Who knows where the next one will be from.

Take care.

You've got your space...
...(not surprising), but this is somewhat more OPEN in a way, allowing for your percussive bass to have a special life (or maybe life force!)that helps to drive this piece. I'm not sure if ambient covers this, but I do (as always) enjoy your inventiveness and skill at mixing various sound elements to create something unique and, I might add, strangely compelling. It is impossible to ignore this kind of expression. I always find many things to be interested in in your compositions.

Hi Paul.....
I wondered if this should be under Experimental but went with the Ambient label.

I enjoy producing something that is (hopefully) meaningful and different. Something that boarders on both music and a sort of enjoyable or experiential diversion. A space away a while, or some such mix of words to describe a pause for thought.

Take care.

Hi Karen......
I'm always happy if my piece is interesting to someone. It makes the doing all the more worth while. I don't know where they come from and if you could work out how Karl Popper and music and caveman seats not being chairs ten thousand years ago, because the word chair had not been coined, then you could think musically like me, but then again I wouldn't like you to be diverted from what you do so wonderfully well in your musical comfort zone (and you'd probably have to take hundreds of tablets and talk to walls or trees).

Thanks for the kind thoughts.

Take care.

I feel like I'm moving toward
the heart of something. The heart is represented by the very clear rhythmic bass that Paul mentions, and the patterns of sound represent things that are passing by as I travel toward the heart. The heart of the galaxy? The heart of consciousness? The heart of truth? You can approach but never get there. Even when the way seems lost with the disappearance of the beat, it gets found again and things carry on. Cool.

Always a pleasure to hear what you're up to.

Be well,

Hi Doug.....
There is never an end to be reached, as there will be no more questions, meaning no more development or expansion, only stasis. We can only reach the ALL by becoming the ALL. Our journey is but an expansion or a re-membering. There is always something, at our level of being at least, to come. Something new to experience.

Does a God strive to become a Meta-God and so on, ad-infinitum?? It's not an original idea but one I hope is true.

Your thoughts resonate with me. As Above, As Below. We are the microcosm in the image of the Microcosm, working our way towards that State of Grace.

Take care.
