New releases from Relaxed Machinery artists

We are really proud to present some of the latest releases from one of our music partners, the artist collective Relaxed Machinery, in FLAC format, containing works from great ambient composers such as Steve Brand, Zero Ohms, Bob Ohrum and Lowell Levene-Sims. We hope you enjoy these releases now on sale in Altera Orbe website.


Steve Brand | Subtle Movements Inside

“Subtle Movements Inside,” was inspired after re-visiting a group of old poems and by recent events in my life. Increasingly, I’m convinced that our lives are changed not so much by outer events, or profound revelations, but if we’re sensitive and attuned to it, by the subtle migration of thought and feeling—subtle movements inside.

Zero Ohms | Worlds, Afterworlds

Worlds, Afterworlds is the debut of Richard Roberts (Zero Ohms) on the Relaxed Machinery label. The five pieces on Worlds, Afterworlds are created with bass flute, wind-synth and field recordings. In an amusing yin-yang progression, the pieces get shorter (and the titles longer) as the album moves forward.

Bob Ohrum | Subliminal Listening

Subliminal Listening was written and recorded in August 2005. This album was created by capturing various field recordings, and then creating music to accompany them… Aside from reverb, these live field recordings have not been altered in any way. This results in a collection of soundscapes that are very organic in nature…

Steve Brand |Cahokia

A three-song journey into one of the deeply mystical places of America’s heartland. From Steve’s blog:

“‘Cahokia’ was originally self-released in early 2007 on, then again in it’s re-worked, re-mastered form in 2009 on another label. This 2011 re-release is on Brand’s own label, Pioneer Light Music (cover photo, Jill brand).

Lowell Levene-Sims | A Thing of Beauty to An Object of Regret

A Thing of Beauty is the first album of Lowell Levene-Sims on Relaxed Machinery label, a personal exploration into the realm of sounds and field recordings.
