khaosfakt014fan Ascendantはアンビエントにのめり込むきっかけになったアーティスト、Synphaeraの中で一番好き(半分はiTunesで購入)
恐らくシーケンサーで作っているであろうサイン波のメロディはずっと聴いてても飽きない不思議な心地よさがある。 Favorite track: Sub-Orbital Forest.
Egg Wizard

Egg Wizard Glorious adult synthetic ambient, tapping that Carbon Based Lifeforms sensation but with vigour all of its own. I've nominated the front tune but basically the whole album is worthy. Get in for a deep space soak. Favorite track: Landfall.

dpetra4 An amazing collection of songs that never fail to lift my spirits into the cosmos. Favorite track: Unearth.

Surrealistic H. Sapiens One of the best releases by Ascendant imo, now extended with more songs. Put on some decent cans and close your eyes on this one. The journey won't disappoint you. Favorite track: Vespyr Rising.

Welcome to the [EX]panded edition of Ascendant's landmark album, Meridian. This double-album features four new ambient re-workings of your favorite tracks, and for the first time ever, a physical release in a deluxe 6-panel double-cd digipack.

If you are here because you heard our music in the game Stormland by Insomniac Games, you're in the right place - this is the album from whence the music came.

10,000 years from now. 10,000 light years from here. A New Land, come of age into a time of abundance, transcendence and enlightenment. The Age of Earth and Stone, where…

An enlightened man exists alongside post-singularity machine AI that manifest as floating coils of light. Frozen clouds are summoned and then flash-melted to provide the planet’s water, and liquid has memory.

A planet where habitats the size, shape & semblance of mountains hover over large bodies of water. A planet where enormous belts of sub-orbital forests scrub the ozone and provide oxygen.

A world where gravity bends, but time does not. A world of alchemical transmutation, elemental summoning, and abundance.

The Age of Earth and Stone.
