Loren Nerell, A Produce
2011 Hypnos HYP3160 (CD)

The first collaboration between two artists well-known to listeners of ambient and experimental music in general. While INTANGIBLE has a meditative and tranquil drifting quality, it also incorporates more melodic and rhythmic elements than most ambient music of the present day. Listeners who like their ambience musical will enjoy this as much as those who like their drones deep and mystical.

2002 Hypnos HYP2236 (CD)

Oöphoi is the Italian sound artist Gianluigi Gasparetti. Gasparetti was perhaps first and best known for his role as editor of the Italian magazine Deep Listenings (Ascolti Produndi), dedicated to ambient and deep atmospheric music. His inclination towards creating slow motion subterranean soundscapes soon earned him a following in his own right for his work as Oöphoi. His releases were first heard on small Italian labels, and his Hypnos debut ATHLIT was released early in 2002.

Wide View
Jeff Greinke
2002 Hypnos (CD)

Exquisite, subtle, timeless, intimate, organic, and melancholic. A listening experience that is relaxing, yet remains engaging on many levels. After focusing for several years on his group projects, Land and Hana, Greinke returns in 2002 with his first solo and truly ambient record in years. A listening experience that is relaxing, yet remains engaging on many levels. "The way he incorporates synth pads, resonant strings, chimes, and piano into such finely honed compositions is truly a marvel to hear." (Outburn)

Paul Ellis
2001 Hypnos (CD)

Paul Ellis is a talented electronic artist who displays a fine sense of sound design, melodic invention, composition and improvisation.

Sonic Continuum
Rod Modell, Michael Mantra
1998 Hypnos HYP1811 (CD)

This fine release has been out for a few years, and should be considered essential listening for those who crave that deep-in-the-AM kind of soundscape experience. This mood-altering CD is made of two 35-minute long-form pieces especially effective at low volume listening or while sleeping. At times it has an almost environmental feeling but is never imposing. Michael Mantra is credited with "source material, Tibetan singing bowls, and Mantras." He is best known for releasing Sonic Alter in 1994 on the Silent Records label, and is considered an expert on "brain tuning" and binaural beat technologies, having written articles for such journals as "New Science News". Rod Modell has a long history of music and sound projects that push the edges in many ways. Besides his soundscape creations Rod also performed project assembly, editing and mastering.
