I will be performing a live ambient set again this year at Poesic Fest. I'm on at 7:30PM. You can see details on my calendar or go to the website: Poesic Fest II
I will be bringing several of my CD's from the past few years. As you may know, most of my CD's are only available for purchase at my shows. All CD's are $10 and cash is preferred.
Poesic Fest is taking place once again at Java Jam in Lone Tree (basically south Denver). They have great food and coffee. And there will be plenty of other live performances and poetry readings at the festival.
Hope to see you at the show!
New album - Zen Ultra: Calm, the 6th edition in the "Zen Ultra" Ambient/Meditation/Sleep/Yoga/Massage music series. This 70 minute long album will be available for download and streaming in early June. The second track off the album can be streamed here:
My 2015 album, "The Blue Star" is still on the Zone Music Reporter top 100 radio charts after 8 months at #56 tied with my good friend and great artist Dave Preston with his album "In These Storms". The "Blue Star" peaked at #26 back in September.
I've spent the past couple of weeks working on House tracks. I put them together into a 30 minute mix and it is available on SoundCloud.
There is only 1 physical CD left of "Astrofield Grave" - a live recording of my 2006 Fiske Planetarium show. I will not repress this as a physical CD. This is the last copy other than my own personal copy.
Performing at the Fiske Planetarium was one of my personal favorite shows. The album cover is one of my original paintings (acrylic on cotton canvas). I gave the original painting to a friend and I have the second version of the painting on my wall at home.
The CD is available at CdBaby for $24.97. Download available for $6.99.
I find myself using the relatively new social media site Minds.com a lot more lately. You can find me on Minds at:

I'm playing a sort of scaled down version of my typical show tomorrow night (Saturday) at an event called Poesic Fest. Here's the link for the fest:
Poesic Fest 2015
By "scaled down" I mean, no projectors/lights and less gear in general. There's a lot going on. The festival starts at 5pm and I go on at 9pm. So, I just wanted to bring an easy to set up rig and start playing. I'm taking a break now from practicing and tweaking out the set.
I'll be playing new material and a bit of old and will have a few copies of my latest CD- "The Blue Star". No physical CD's are available online, so if you want one, this will be the only place to get it!
So - come down to the Poesic Fest, drink some coffee and enjoy the show.
I attended a Robert Rich house concert last Friday. See the review here:

The Blue Star by Mingo review
This album, consisting of eight instrumental tracks and almost an hour in length, has a space theme that suits the music perfectly, and brings to mind The Orb's ambient classic Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld. Opening track A Distant Moon sets an evocative mood, a single low end synth playing a repeated simple melody, eventually joined by a ghostly, haunting piano line and it's not difficult imagine yourself drifting through space as you listen.
Mingo makes masterly use of atmospherics and sound effects that can be very effective in giving a sense of other-worldliness, like on the slow-building Narvi. The title track is seven minutes of blissed-out beauty orbiting somewhere near Betelgeuse, but the two epic tracks Omega Point and Under Spiral Skies were my favourites, both around the ten minute mark. They employ pulsing tribal percussion and rhythmic patterns to great effect, whilst A Glimpse Of Dawn and final track Zeno end the album on a suitably transcendent and mysterious note.
Overall, this is a captivating and sonically fascinating album. Ambient music can take the listener on a journey and transport them in a way that perhaps no other genre of music can, and Mingo has become a seasoned practitioner of this art form. He has already built up a strong fanbase, and ambient/electronica lovers who are new to his work will find much to enjoy here.

I'm happy to announce that my latest Electro-Ambient/New Age album "The Blue Star" will be released in digital format in a few days. The physical CD will be out later this Spring.
"The Blue Star" is my first ambient album to come out since "Sky Over Sea" was released in 2013. Half of the tracks from Blue Star were written and performed live in 2014, but the only tracks I released last year were EDM and experimental.
I also plan to release alternate versions of Blue Star tracks over 2015 as singles. And soon I will announce the official launch party for Blue Star when I secured a date.
Just uploaded the new track "Narvi"
My latest ambient album "The Blue Star" will be available soon.
In the meantime, you can preview the track "Amida" on YouTube
