feast for crow

happy bird orchestra

vainglorious

leap day

president evil

the instruments of death

nefertiti

unwinding prophecy

guitarilla

fun with cardboard

petroglyph

seagulls

the tides of march

helios

passing the torch

torching the pass

sheepish

mutant sheepish

monsoon season

long walk in the pouring rain

effective immediately

a passage of time

kiwi republic

the harold angels

carbon life forms

silicon life forms

area 52

the ballad of elvis finch

economy of scale

abstraction

question mark

the imperial

electric gambit

time wounds all heels

back from the dead

memories of times to come

maelstrom of my memory

not daft at all

daft prog

daft industrial

daft pop / reel

pandora’s small container

the dark passenger

trouble in paradise

in summer, my feet are black

almost waking - prototype

almost waking

embellishment

pulsating

pulsating wisdom

pulsating wisdom - drums mix

I always glid before

colossal velocity

the calming hour

silently streaming sunlight

morning stillness

downtime

sandpiper calls

sandpiper calls - extended mix

the ghosts of my life

the pagan gods return

the pagan gods return - dance mix

beyond the pale

beyond the pale - extended mix

global cooling

global heating

random event

adagio...largo...slow

adagio...largo...slower

bowed glass / saw fizz

cinematic lovers sway

heaven’s verandah I

heaven’s verandah II

aquatron (the return)

morphing mental metal

across the veldt (burning)

delay line

the summer of george

the overstated ecstatic beating of my heart

codachord chromosone

encoded deep within

remember to breathe - breathe !!!

I really want to see you, I really want to see you

I really want to see you, I really want to see you - strings

back to kampala - the seven hills

the oldest cinema in the universe

emptiness (sad without you)

hypnotic

last night I dreamed in stereo

another unscheduled walk in the rain

the loneliest man in the world

home of the ancients

at all costs

wandering aimlessly

no two ways about it

one year later

a sharp symmetry

a presence sensed but not seen

the speed of sound

everlasting

the inexorable presence

cataclysmic device

orderly device

passion fruit suite

row boat on a lake

waves

another wrong door

...like the end of the world

through the glass dimly

(stretching) the fabric of space and time

uncertain journey

timbre

synthesized joy

so...does dave stafford have any “earlier material”?

over time, as time permits, we’ve been adding very small amounts of this “earlier material” to the “pureambient blog audio companion page”, which was created for the purpose of trying to sort this out - so you might find something there...but there are no guarantees as to what it might be, or what the sound quality might be like - it was, after all, a long, long time ago...

well...   maybe.

the shores of lake nakuru

darkest african night

a million flamingoes in flight

high above the rift valley  

mombasa-bound again

across the lowlands

heaven on earth - coraldene

last in a line of kings...

that kind of day (endless sunshine) - version 1

that kind of day (endless sunshine) - version 2

that kind of day (endless sunshine) - version 3

another kind of day (endless rain) - version 1

another kind of day (endless rain) - version 2         

another kind of day (endless rain) - version 3

darkness reigns now (in my heart)

the very least I could do (is shoot you)

reaching for the stars

(a tribute to) easy street

doctor may

planet gong experience

interstellar walk

I sure got the blues (this morning)

saturation point

deemed impossible

at my insistence

straight into oncoming traffic

voice of an angle

the next best thing

the bright side of the moon

another (uselessly proffered) olive branch

planet obelisk

day seventeen

building the obelisk

all good children go to heaven

beautiful metallic noise

the occasional chord (to remind us)

it’s echo soup in here

the heavens unfold

since the dawn of time

reaching catharsis (bridge)

exogenesis

exoskeletal

exospheric

exothermal

exocyclic

exonumia

on the cusp of yesterday    

synthetic passion no. 1    

synthetic passion no. 2

the hanuman blues  

mourning devotional

a clockwork lime

ring of power

the vinyl jungle

land of 1000 harmonisers (parts 1 & 2)

and freedom, too...

until the end

on the brink of euphoria

waiting / distant thunder  

the sunlit path to enlightenment

looking back (a conversation)

reaching for the stars (reprise)

highly combustible

the shape of chaos

olfactory sensation

kingfisher (bright water)

redolent (of seasons gone by)

summit (himalayan)
