Since last Friday, Ambientaria now has a new section, called “Services“.
Basically, we are now offering a range of services such as flyer design or album cover design at very low prices (for instance, designing a flyer would cost 5€ only).
We believe that it will be useful to many artists, labels or event managers, while providing us substantial funds in order to eventually make physical releases. Moreover, we’re looking forward to extending this range of services to satisfy everyone’s demand : don’t hesitate to share your ideas and requests.
NB : we’re opened to working on non-Dark Ambient projects
Well, now it’s official : Ambientaria Records is working on Dark Ambient T-Shirts ! Attention : we’re not talking about “Ambientaria T-Shirts” or anything with the Ambientaria label on it. No. These will be 100% Dark Ambient stuffs.
We’re going to make two different designs : a “I <3 Dark Ambient” one and another darker one. Since the first one is already finished, I thought it was a good idea to share it with you (both the black version and the white one)…
EDIT (02/08/2011) : Ambientaria will propose the “I <3 Dark Ambient” t-shirts only. In the future we may be revealing a third design.
As you may already know, Marc Broude has joined Ambientaria Records earlier today. We’re currently working with him in order to perfectly plan his upcoming release on our label. You may join him on Facebook for instance…
Since few of you may know him, we thought it would be a good idea to share his previous album, called Medicine. So here it is, free to download, with an exclusive bonus track, Frownland (the Medicine B-Side) !
Marc Broude (born August 23, 1984) is an American cross-genre composer who started in the Chicago-based noise outfit Panicsville in 2005.
Marc started recording while living in a squatter artist collective in 2005. Surrounded by musicians and a wide array of instruments, Marc spent the next couple years making a name for himself as a solo musician while playing in various bands with genres like black metal, grindcore, punk, and noise.
In 2006 he released the 7″ Psychological Warfare. That same year Marc, Danny Cortez and Chris Anderson formed Zog, a black metal outfit that disbanded after the death of Danny Cortez.
Marc took a break through 2007 following intense personal issues and continued his solo endeavor in 2008 while residing at various artist collectives and performing at DIY venues throughout the Chicago area.
In 2009 Marc’s sound drastically changed as he released the seventy-two minute dark ambient dirge Rites of Zen and Medicine, a fusion of free improvisation and avant-garde jazz. In 2011 Marc remixed, remastered and reissued Psychological Warfare.
Many of you have closely followed the “Remember Chernobyl (1986-2011)” charity project organized by Ambientaria Records, which consisted in the release of a 19-tracks dark ambient compilation in order to raise money for the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster.
I am pleased to announce you that two Ambientaria Artists, Xun and Backyard Ghost, have been featured on a Dark Ambient Charity compilation whose benefits go towards the Japan Earthquake victims, a bit like what we had organized with the “Remember Chernobyl” Compilation.
This compilation, organized by Tom Zm (of Tribes of Medusa), is named “Koumyou – Dark Artists for Japan Earthquake Relief“. We would like to invite you to buy this compilation in order to help the victims of the Earthquake. The album costs around $10 only for 47 songs !
