Hello, weary space travelers. Today, we are embarking on a special journey that is manned by two cosmic pilots that are both certified dream weavers and licensed in sonic amalgamation studies. I'm blessed by the attendance of a qualified technician in the field of aural science in an effort to tweak this morsel to its optimal state of flavor with maximum mentally digestive capabilities. Together, with the rewarding and inspiring assistance of COSMIC CAVEMAN, we were able to build a strong team of like-minded and goal-oriented unity. Collectively, we designed a tapestry that is beyond our initial prototype of a journey that begins and ends in a surreal dream world. 

Dreams are an unpredictable affair, and as they form and unravel at whatever rate it is that they do, we are rewarded with a universe that is unique to the individual. We ask that you open the gates to your mind, and allow that space that exists between your ears (to include your ears) a safe haven for the unfurling of this voyage. We assure you that within this union of sound you will have the opportunity to add your own dreams as a glue to further solidify the significance of this offering. Even the negative meanderings perhaps need to surface to the light to bring about new creative solutions and recognition. Use that as an opportunity to right the wrongs and find your way.


Cosmic Caveman and I hope that you personally enjoy the experience that we've created for you. To hear more of his deeply sincere admiration of the ambient realm, visit his MIXCLOUD page and take in some delicate journeys. We very much hope that you continually seek a creative and mentally prosperous mental universe. Follow that path to your innovative higher self. Peace.

Just recently I got to take a trip home. I was able to get my head right and fill it up with a good bit of nostalgia. I've lived the majority of my life away from where I was born (which I will always consider my home), and even though I'm still fascinated by the many ventures that I've taken (I've lived in a few different countries and have traveled extensively throughout the US), there really is no place like home. As persistent as I've tried to be escaping home, it always still draws me back with some sort of invisible force created by my memories. Trying to separate that seed from the tree is a very futile and meaningless event. I've always looked at those who chose to live close to the place where their favorite childhood memories were birthed and didn't really understand how these people didn't move on. Now, I can say that I understand and sympathize with those individuals.

Let's keep in mind that our home is truly where the heart is, and being surrounded by those that you love and those that love you defines home. I'd like to pay homage to that feeling of belonging and yearning that is created by a special place within this universe that you choose to let a part of you mind and soul to surrender. This could be anywhere for anyone, and every single spot is unique to its occupant. Take this music to drift to the place that you call home, either physically or mentally. 

For this session, I've interlaced the selections with familiar sounds of my happy home, past and present. Use this tapestry to return to the good times that exist within your mind and embark on a journey that takes you to the the front door of sacred and treasured events that made you the unique person that you are today.

Today we will continue a journey that we began a while back, and in doing so, we will step off with the same tapestry that we ended with on that first leg of the venture. Our desire to remain in a state of fluidity is driven by the need to coexist with those factors which seem to deplete our mental and creative flow and disrupt progress and forward momentum. Let's not create the current which exists to carry us upward and onward, but rather surrender to the woven colors and enter a dreamlike state where we rise above our earthly floor. This is where we can put our obstacles in better perspective to achieve our dreams.


As you begin your drift, be sure to mute cell phones and other distracting devices so as to fortify and enhance the experience of taking in every possible creative morsel to fill you hungry mind. With a blank slate, you will be able to craft your own artistically driven journey with colors that only you imagine and execute into a carefully developed tapestry.  Hang this beautiful creating that is unique to you within that universe of your mind that holds the things which you cherish and save for later times when called for. Enjoy the journey and keep drifting. Peace.

Hello, fellow cosmic dwellers, and welcome to the latest edition of Spaceman's Transmissions. This journey will require us to transcend a bit higher than our earthly floor to get a bird's eye glimpse of the celestial body that we call Mother Earth. During our travels, we'll seek to exist just above the surface of whatever turmoil and disruptions lie below our comfortable ceiling, and put into perspective all of the situations that need our attention and consideration. With this calibration of mental facilities, our goal is to then seek the answers to the many puzzles that life throws us, with a renewed creative focus that will effortlessly untangle the mysterious responsibilities that cause friction and turbulence. All that we here at Spaceman's Transmissions ask is to allow yourself the single hour within your day to let go and find solace, peace, and comfort in the tapestry of color and sound. Allow this collage entry into your unsettled mind in effort that it will untangle the situations that bind you to what ails you. Your mission, should you accept, is to seek and implement the peacefully subliminal flow so that you may assist others with turbulent situations in an effort to pay it forward.


The utmost amount of attention and care were utilized in an effort to allow the highest allowance of aural benefit. Our sound labs were recently sterilized and our readings correlated with the highest standards in accordance with dream laboratories worldwide. We guarantee that this journey is safe for lactose intolerant individuals, is kosher, fat-free, and high in supplements of sugar-free ear candy. Feel free to share generous bite sizes of this offering with those that you care about. Peace.

we have become infinite

Hello, ambient space travelers. Today, we will embark on a journey through a cerebral dreamlike state of semi-conscious travel, with a duration lasting from the cosmic sunrise to the cosmic sunset. For a single hour out of your busy and turbulent life, we will assemble ourselves comfortably within our space pods for a colorful excursion that brings us many peaks and valleys. Each interpretation of this experience will be unique. Knowing this, you are equipped with the knowledge that your journey belongs to you alone. Right now, no one's experience is more important than your own. 

 

I am delighted to have been able to discover a lot of very good music. In the near future (which means not a whole lot, really!), I would like to present a few more reviews of releases. Some of my recent discoveries include DISPOSABLE PLANET, MUSICFORMESSIER (whose output with various other guises is absolutely staggering), ENDLESS MELANCHOLY, and some of the artists that I have found from HEARTHIS.AT. Many thanks for the inspiration!


A special thanks to my friends at HEARTHIS.AT for allowing me to take part in gluing their compositions to my collage (CJMASOU and AMBIENT MECHANICS). I would love to have the opportunity to use more tracks from these amazing soundscape technicians.

Greetings, fellow travelers. Today, we here at Spaceman's Transmissions wish to be blessed with your attendance on our latest journey to the celestial horizon in effort to witness the event of an aural rain-shower. Our journey will reward us with the beautiful visions of a world within our minds. There is still a realm of your mind that is untapped and undiscovered, full of creativity, beauty, and child-like wonder. Let go of the chaotic physical realm and delve into the sonic realm to reap mental benefits. Within our tired minds, we will map out our path to solace and mental clarity. We will attempt to reemerge with a renewed sense of purpose, enlightenment, and comfort. Take in the beauty of this session, and realize that its sole purpose is to put you, the aural attendee, in a new headspace. With your accommodations upgraded to first class, we are quite confident that this undertaking will be a successful one.

This session was developed with meticulous detail. We guarantee a certified organic offering, and our intensive and time consuming attention to detail is to provide our clients with a journey that is free of turbulent shifts in mood. Every melodic and harmonic transition is a step higher to our destination. Your ears and mind are hungry, feed them with the bacon of sound.

mental drift vol. 1

Greetings, voyagers. Today we'll undertake an eventful journey that is geared towards getting our minds properly adjusted for creativity and peace. All I ask you for, dear listener, is just roughly an hour of your time. If possible, the use of headphones or ear buds is recommended to separate the existing physical world (which can at times deliver too much chaos and disruption) from the cerebral world. It is within this cerebral world that you will realize your potential and emerge from your cocoon with reestablished purpose and clarity. You might not realize it, but this small space between your ears holds a galaxy that is unique and vibrant. Feed it with food of color and sound.


The caring 24-7 staff at Spaceman's Transmissions have worked diligently on this session, ensuring that it is calibrated to the highest degree. We understand that this can be a continuous process, and therefore have designated this first journey as 'Vol. 1'. More required sessions will follow points in time with each session beginning where the last one left off. The sessions will be sporadic and unannounced.  Always be ready.


Find your peace within this turbulent world, and take in the new vibes that are presented in this colorful aural package. When you need to escape the physical world and its taxing requirements, please rest assured that this session will always be here to guide you into a new world of solace and comfort. This underlying sentiment is the basis of our mission statement.

ode to the cosmic voyager

Cosmonaut_Surreal_2.jpg

Now that we've managed to take in some new sights and sounds on our last detour, we must once again aboard the space pod for another dimensional thrust into galaxies of wonder and solace. Mental calibration is essential for a successful journey. Below are instructions for getting the most out of this particular session.


You may perhaps notice that there are gradual shifts from one color to another, with each color representing a point of interest in our journey. Embrace these transformations with your mind's eye as this will create a backdrop of creative flow and a better understanding of those situations which impede your creativity. Your pilot for this journey will relay vital information that should not so much be heard as it is felt. Adjust accordingly.


Every mission at Spaceman's Transmissions is executed  first and foremost with the consideration to its listeners. Each individual's aural perception is dependent upon the magnitude of their surrender to the sonic tapestries. It is suggested that you do not operate heavy machinery when taking in this session in particular. Those susceptible to more gravitational pull within their minds and a wider mental galaxy in which to spread the music will benefit at a much higher rate. This is guaranteed. 


Please enjoy responsibly, and spread the word of Spaceman's Transmissions. Thanks for your choosing to travel with us, and please keep us in mind for your next intra- and inter-stellar voyage. Peace.

Quite a while ago, as a few might remember, was an amazing ambient mix blog entitled 'HYDROGEN CAFE'. Actually, it's (kind of) still there (inactivated in 2010). There was a bit of a faithful following, and it was this blog as well as LOW LIGHT MIXES that set me on my way. When I was living in Alaska, I yearned for the moments in the dead of winter in which I would play these mixes and watch the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) dance in the sky. My favorite mixes were the 'Music For Stargazing' sessions, and they accompanied in my night time slumber when I was left to exercise my stargazing sessions within my mind. 


Stargaze3.jpgThis is my tribute to the elusive 'nrvnet' who curated the site and brought me many hours of solace and wonder. Wherever you are out there in cyberspace, thank you for your vision and inspiration. I hope that this mix will inspire you, the listener, to do something that you love and enjoy, and realize that your actions make a bigger impact upon people that seek guidance and find solace and joy within sounds and color.


Now that the days are sadly getting shorter and our daylight is decreasing, we should still find reasons to celebrate our journey on Mother Earth. Use this music for just that purpose. Delve into the universe that exists within a very small plane: the space between your ears.

when night meets light

Today we're honoring those precious moments that exists between sleeping and waking. This tiny sensation might seem unimportant, but it is a very delicately balanced phenomena  that requires your investment. The mission here is to usher in the day and to wind the gears of your waking mind, while allowing a passage that melds the sleeping and waking, as well as night to day. Spaceman's Transmissions is dedicated to providing the optimal amount of aural care that is required so as to not disrupt a good mental flow that is required to set the listeners up for success.


Cosmic_Sunrise_III.jpgDuring this session, we will move within tapestries of solace and bliss. This will simulate those moments between sleeping and waking and your reentry into the waking world will be a smooth journey. Or your money back. 


As you feel each color melding into another, realize that you are secure in the blanket of tranquility. Know that our journey is a temporary transition from one state to another, and be comforted that Spaceman's Transmissions is a trusted source of travel among the cosmos. Our proven track record will attest to that.


Make sure that your mind's eye is calibrated to take beautiful photos of the mental galaxy that will be the backdrop during your journey. These images will comfort you when the waking day is a stressful and turbulent reality. Reflect on the beauty and creativity that makes you a unique and interesting soul. 


Peace.

Let's prepare for a journey into the realm of summer by celebrating the solstice (which was, by the way, the 21st of June). It was officially the longest day of the year and the midway point in summer. This means that, unfortunately, the days will begin to get shorter. Knowing this,, I've toiled in developing a colorful scene to ease you into the remaining warm months, aware of the importance of aligning and balancing your conscious thoughts within your subconscious mind. Every step was taken to assure that your entry into a mental overhaul is optimal.


Summer is by far my favorite time of the year. It brings and energy and renewal that I've been yearning for a very long time. Even with things not completely going my way, Mother Earth has a way of shining a light upon the turmoil that may exist and depletes my anguish. If there is one small tribute that I can muster, it's this. 


Thank you for your outpouring support, and keep supporting the artists that provide us with amazingly colorful journeys into their world. Tell them that tonepoet sent you.


Peace.

**reboot transmission**

Hello, fellow space travelers. The mental space pod is still in need of extreme re-calibration and its navigation system was recalled. We had wandered off course to various destinations that were setbacks in our initial mission, but were necessary to insuring that future explorations would be warranted and successful. We have now set on a course to break through the atmosphere and gravity that binds us to earthly turmoil and terrible things called responsibilities. With our new course underway, Spaceman's Transmissions seeks to circumvent any unnecessary diversions brought on by various hindrances. This is a temporary journey, but one that was required due to the extremely inspiring colors that had drifted into focus.

Greetings. If this posting title seems a bit apocalyptic (or cryptic), well, it kind of is. I've done a lot of deep thinking over the last few months and I've decided that it's time to send the spaceman home and end the mission. It's been a fun journey, and the experience of creating mixes and meeting people has been unreal. I have to say, that I really only set out to make a few mixes, maybe have a blog for about a year at the most, and move on. It turned out to be a bit more than that, and the time and effort that I put into making it (somewhat) successful has been very overwhelming at times. I really enjoy making the mixes, finding the tunes within my library, listening, working on the site, and so on and so forth. It was kind of a test to see if I even had an aptitude to do such a thing (many, many thanks to Dave Michuda for getting me up and running due to the endless inquiries). Still not sure if I have the aptitude for it all, but I really enjoyed it.

soul ascending

There are so many ideas and theories about what truly happens to your soul when we depart Mother Earth. Is our mortal body a vessel that carries the soul, steered by our intuition and desires? Or are we just empty shells, only to be recycled back to the Earth? I have my thoughts and beliefs, as does anyone. Life is about pondering, discovering, and experiencing. Like anyone else, I strive to radiate good intentions by trying to live a selfless life that is inspirational. In doing so, my wish is that as my soul ascends, it will be accompanied by a beautiful soundtrack; one that represents the elation that I experienced in my life balanced with the melancholy of departure. I would like reflect on my life in a satisfyingly content manner during the ordeal, both good and bad.


Soul%2BAscending.pngThe intention of this mix is for it to be used figuratively. If a dark cloud casts a shadow over your world, the music presented here will guide you above and beyond. Do not allow the gravity of turmoil and negativity weigh you down. The set here is intentionally a bit cinematic and deep, and I hope that your soul ascends higher and higher as you take in warm colors and the sonic aura that envelopes your soul. 


This session was inspired by the artist WINGS OF AN ANGEL, who has the perfect moniker for this particular session. I wanted to use only his music, but thought it would suffice to use quite a few pieces that I extracted from the amazing release OUR FORGOTTEN INFINITY AND THE ABSOLUTE ZERO. Upon my initial reaction of hearing this release, it brought the idea to me. Very inspiring.
