Wow.  Backwards.  Another first for me here on RP.  I owe you/it some money. 
This is a nice piece.  I checked in -- hopeful it was a new Jean Michel Jarre offering.  Alas not, but it is very listenable nonetheless.  I'm tangerine dreaming.   




So am I

I heard some J.M. Jarre, too
I love how this reminds me of those really spooky parts deep within that Doors song or Beethoven symphony that I drew comfort from as I settled into new lives in places scattered across the world. From time to time we may become aware of the Earthly manifestations of the infinite and immortal electro-magnetic fields and currents that create, animate, and permeate The Universe... Last night I did a post-sunset hike up onto Kohler Mesa. Where the trail goes up at the end of the street I grabbed and ate a handful of juniper berries that brushed against my arm as I passed. Near the bench at the junction marked Four Pines -- alas, only two remain standing -- I stood and took in an exotic alpine bouquet not found just a few feet below. When Bear Peak, Green Mountain and The Flatirons went dark purple against the snow-glow coming off The Divide I looked down and saw new baby shoots of white sage waving hello to me. I picked the tops off a few and chewed them, enjoying the demulcent effects and piquant, tonifying pungency. Suddenly everywhere off-trail I looked they all glowed and called to me. I reached for lonely, sheltered ones free of trail dust or animal pee. I gave thanks and munched them joyously as I made my way on up, looking back upon the lights of Lyons, Boulder, Longmont, Erie, Lafayette, Louisville and Superior. As I came up through the notch and over the rise I reveled in the flow of cold air rushing down from Enchanted Mesa and was called to pluck a delectable drip of frankincense-like sap from an eye of the very same red pine I'd tended back when it was only a couple of feet tall and had just begun the miracle of splitting the rock it has since completely supplanted. I bent down and and gently pinched off the soft fluffy caterpillar-like upper leaves of some stalks of yarrow nearby, whose new and luminous white blossom-heads now beckoned to me from their moonless shadows, and I also noticed some of the more spindly and enticingly sweet type of sage that I've only ever found in that particular spot so I grabbed some of that too and tucked it all into a wad in my craw as I set off along the Skunk Canyon Trail, taking the long way home, feeling surrounded and embraced by all the ghosts at play around and within me here Amen
This is wonderful too:

Deadmau5 with bees? This is reminding me of The Veldt, but fuzzier.
I'm liking this Hania Rani more and more! Whoah, and she's working with Patrick Watson on this, I just found out! No wonder I'm so mesmerized by this album... His "To Build a Home" is so heartbreaking and wonderful! His surreal Close to Paradise kept me rapt my whole month in Mauritius, when I played it daily...so trippy and Floydian and impeccably produced; what a talent! I'm excited and grateful for this, RP!

Wow! Thank you for that link!

That is some of the finest, most interesting, most mesmerizing music I've heard in a long time, in an amazing video...

sounds a little bit like Nils Frahm
Sounds like someone snuck into the control room at RP and set the dial to weird. But cool.

 You are not wrong though.
Love it! Up there with the best of electronica!
It sounds like Jean Michel Jarre. Great that his legacy continues. Got appetite for more music from Hania.

This is good, but... anyone else hear Jean-Michel Jarre here? He defined the genre and set benchmark which is difficult for any other artist to meet or excede, not to mention leave its own fingerprint. 
I love discovering new music.  Thank you RP!

Without?!
Wow, beautiful minimalist work. Reminiscent of Steve Reich, Phillip Glass, or Zoe Keating. Opens with an easy 8 from Napoli on the Gulf. Thanks Rebecca and Bill for tihs beautiful find.
Her live performances are pretty compelling. She recently did a tiny desk concert as well. 
This is the third time in the last few days that a piece of music has made me stop and listen  carefully and it's turned out to be Hania Rani. Arresting and absorbing. 
And then that deep bass note creeps in, driving your subwoofer to tremble and shake your desk. 


I am very pleased that you have included Hania Rani in your portfolio. We talked about it some time ago. Best regards from Germany.
Anyone that knows/appreciates piano, can definitely tell, this young lady is REALLY into her work! A very beautiful piece. Well done! Thanks Bill & crew!

Interesting and hypnotic, but sounds a bit soundtrack-y. Like there needs to be some kind of dizzying visual that it backs up, such as Tangerine Dream and Risky Business train segment...
