Free Monthly Download - Matt Borghi
- Hello all, and Happy Holidays!!!
The December 2003 download is up at http://www.mattborghi.com This track
is a little more ambitious, full of layers, and a variety of different
timbres, yet still wholly ambient in nature. This track clocks in at about
23 minutes, and is the longest of the set so far. The influences on this
track run the gamut of electronic music, everything from Zoviet France to
a bit of a Harold Budd/ Brian Eno feel with a little of dense sonic float
ambient fabric underneath. Get it now, as the direction is going to be
starting to change a bit in 2004.
Thanks, and Happy Holidays!!!!

(because this started in June, the collection is June03 - December03)
- 1 Previously Unreleased Full-Length CD - Three Meditation Cycles
Three Meditation Cycles is a collection of three longer form works that
I've been using for sonic, and mindfulness meditation, as well as for
yoga. Each of these works is right around the 20 minute range. While I use
these works for meditation, and yoga, these are also a set of deep
ambiences that have the wide open spaciousness of Steve Roach, or
Exuviae's work, and synth-style approach of vidnaObmana or in some cases
Mychael Danna (Danna and Clement).

This series of paintings was done especially for this collection. After
the first monthly download people started asking if I would sell them, at
first I was against the idea, until I realized just how many people are
using dial-ups, and couldn't get these tracks just because of sheer size.
I knew that this would be sold as a set, because there would be at least
three CDs... So I started working with the idea of a package, and a
I wanted the painting to emphasize the recordings, if not visually, then
conceptually. I wanted to use an element that was simple, and easily taken
for granted. I settled on a 5" x 7" sheet of watercolor paper that was
dipped in white paint on one side, then dipped in a rich bed of soil near
my garden. For me, this painting symbolizes the coming up from earth, and
the parting unto ashes when we expire. It also emphasizes the passage, and
developments of time much like the origins from which the monthly download
series emerged. At the same time, contemplating the soil, and the earth
during meditation is somewhat of a secondary use for the Three
