Our estimated artist Mindglide debuts Bandcamp site where fans can finally find all his releases available. This includes the remarkable albums Down the light and Radiance , released on Altera Orbe back in 2011 and 2012 with notable success and also two new albums that the artist recorded since then, Cosmogenia (2012), an intimate soundtrack for deep space journeys and Present Absence (2015), a delicate and highly detailed exploration of the electronic music divided on three chapters with a generous amount of vintage and futiristic sounds and soundworlds.
Mindglide has also released a remastered early work entitled Tangent, which is also an awesome sounding masterwork that Tangerine Dreams fans will easily enjoy as it contains a lot of sequences, long evolving melodies and drifting soundwolds with a bit of both experimental and psychodelic elements to enhance the experience.
As most of you already know, Mindglide music is mostly based on cosmic electronic ambient with berlin school influences, genres that he deeply explores with those new releases, available for the first time. All of them are also carefully mastered by himself in his home studio.

Born in Hannover (Germany) in 1972 and
later moved to Valencia (Spain), Ran Kirlian began exploring his own
musical pathways in the mid-nineties and recorded his first album Shore of Darkness in 2000. Since then nearly a dozen albums have followed, among which include Obscurity (2000), Melting Point (2001), Sleeper (2004) and his lastest work Dissolution (2009). Also, two albums entitled Selected Works I & Selected Works II
were released in 2007 collecting music recorded and released between
years 2000 and 2007 from tribal-ambient to dark and space ambient
His music, mostly focussed on tribal and dark ambient
genres, offers a personal and intense approach to textural landscaping
and atmospheres inspiring ritualistic environments, cold spaces and
desolate landscapes. Defined as a self-taught musician, he uses to
start most of his projects from raw improvisations that later evolve in
a continuous refinement process.
With synthesizers and
samplers as his main tools, his music tries to combine different sound
sources like field recordings, exotic flutes, percussions and ethnic
instruments like bowls and didgeridoos. This mixture carries evident
influences from artists like Steve Roach, Alio Die, Robert Rich, Mathias
Grassow, Oöphoi, Lustmord, Thom Brennan and Jorge Reyes.
The Ocean Inside is the long awaited new album of Max Corbacho presents an immersive flow of emotional soundworlds and harmonic structures that bring us to the depths of the inner ocean.
Max Corbacho returns with a new work, this time as a long awaited double album, which again immerse ourselves into touching atmospheric ambient realms of pure beauty. The Ocean Inside is a paradise of lush, cascading long chords, as oceanic waves, back and forth, in an eternal flow of shifting tones and spiraling harmonies. This is music aimed at energy, emotional and mental levels, for listeners who love deep, meditative ambient music.
With this awesome album Corbacho portrays a very personal and introspective journey divided in two parts: one in his now classical melodic and cosmic style full of beauty and dreams and the other one introducing a deeper and a bit darker scenario surrounded by massive amounts of pads and drones that takes us to the dephts of serenity, like laying in the ground of an infinite ocean. In the end, this album is just an acurated soundtrack of every human soul.
In Max words:
More than two years ago I started this project from a Eastern concept that has always been present in my work: the analogy that exists between the mind as an ocean, with constantly changing waves at the surface, and the inner stillness and silence at the depths. It is from this seed that brings me to the concept of “Oceanic”, the word from which I have been developed each of the parts that make up the album. During the creation of these pieces, I tried to go as deep as I could into this bottomless ocean depths. The Ocean Inside is the record of that dive into the depths, the witness that what matters is not how deep you can go, if not the experience of that moment.
