BRÜCKNER & BRÜSSEL - Public Rehearsal May 16th 2015
Posted Sat Apr 18, 2015 12:02 am by BruecknerAmbient
Concert News I'd like to announce this very small - but still basically "public" event - also here, not in the hope to attract a big audience, but rather for the odd fan or listener who's adventurous enough and doesn't mind a longer drive to join this "family gathering"... Wink

On Saturday, the 16th of May, at around 7 pm, Mathias Brüssel and I will hold a "public rehearsal". To this end we have rented a small hall near Mainz (the city where we live, near Frankfurt) and play for a small audience - a "slightly bigger living room concert". The event is also meant as a chance for some of our German listeners who can't make it to our regular concert about two weeks later.

So we will (indeed!) rehearse our current set, then there will be a break where we can all eat, drink and chat a while, and after that Mathias and me will go on playing as long as people will enjoy to listen...

Admission will be FREE, but it is necessary to register in advance, because the room is limited (50 seats in all).

In the * admittedly unlikely * case you want to join us, please contact me directly and we will sort out the procedure. Of course, we would be delighted!!!

Since I had experienced troubles with the internal mail system of the EMPortal in the past, please send me a message either

- via https://www.facebook.com/bruecknerAmbient (prefered)

or in case that's not possible via


(...which is a mailbox I check usually only once or twice per month, though).

There is, btw. a second recording of an earlier rehearsal session online by now (already slightly different from the first one), so if You want to get an idea, You can check here - then again, the set will still evolve during the next few weeks...

syndae - episode 298
Posted Fri Apr 17, 2015 10:00 pm by treibklang
EM News "Don't drink and drive", who has not heard this phrase before? Well, for a podcast like tonight, it is rather "Don't listen and drive" as this edition rather is on the quiet side of the force. Nevertheless, it contains brilliant beauty all over the show, so not to miss out, if you also cherish more peaceful music, ambient that is. And it's also a tiny consolation for all of you not being at E-Day this weekend, as the first track is the first live act on stage, Ron Boots as Derelict Thoughts (Autumn Moon). But there are more contributors who make a great collection of ambient: Riz Masten (Girls Alive), Frore & Shane Morris (Blood Moon), Ambient Circle (Session 19), Carey Moore (Trout Ribs), as well as NFushigi and Cousin Silas (Midnight Radio Compilation Beautiful Julia).

Slow down your mind on:

Yours, Stefan

Against all odds.....
Posted Wed Apr 15, 2015 10:41 pm by Epiphany
EM News It has been an long time since I posted something on this forum. Mainly because I was to busy producing and recording other artists. But something happened that I want to share with you all. I realize that the kind of music I make is somewhat different and sometimes I alienate people with it. Nevertheless, I received today an e-mail that my last cd "Sonica" had won in the category "best ambient album of April 2015" on the website of Akademia.

Check this out http://www.theakademia.com/april2015_bestalbum_ambient.html

Thanks for reading

Dave Thompson- Enigmas/Beyond The Unknown Territory
Posted Sun Apr 12, 2015 9:43 pm by Phobos
EM News Before I started to record and release music under the name of Phobos I used to record and release music under, well sort of, my real name. I released 3 cassette albums, Unknown Territory, Approaching The Light and Rainbows End, and 2 CDr albums, Enigmas and Beyond The Unknown Territory.
This music though, was completely different to the output of Phobos,
as it contains melody, rhythm and sequences, however you might find the odd hint of ambient and a splurge of spacemusic in there too!
Maybe they were subconscious signals for what was to follow many years later!

Now available for the first time as a digital download in a format of your choice, FLAC, MP3 etc, I present Enigmas together with Beyond The Unknown Territory. Also included is a bonus track which has never been released before.

All tracks are also individually downloadable, so of you don’t fancy the whole release you can just pick 1or 2 tracks if you prefer.

You can listen/stream here:-

GR-216 - Zanov - In the Course of Time
Posted Sat Apr 11, 2015 7:12 pm by Ron
EM News New Groove Release GR-216 Zanov - In Course of time

I am happy to announce that Groove will release another Gem of EM from
the past. This time it is the album "In the Course of Time" by Zanov!!
Enigmatic, surreal, futuristic and deeply mysterious are the keywords
to best describe Zanov’s 3rd album “In Course Of Time”. Legendary French synthesist Zanov, aka Pierre Salkazanov, already started work on this landmark album before his last concert in Villebon (near Paris) in June 1978, followed by some significant changes in 1979.

The tracks of the classic recording ended up on different tapes,
the first composition being “Sky Energy”, followed by “Lost message”
“Phantasm”, “Infinitude”, and the title track “In course of time”. In the creative process, Zanov made extensive use of the VCS3, ARP2600 & RMI Harmonic Synthesizer (at that time he didn’t yet have the Korg PS3300) and recorded the
outcome on the TEAC3340S.

The music on each of the five tracks turns out as Zanov’s most
advanced and accomplished effort until then.
Just after the end of his 5-year contract in December 1981, all music
finally fitted the bill according the composer.
The recording was eventually released on vinyl in 1982 on the French
Ondes-label and the Canadian Les Disques Solaris.
All in all, “In Course Of Time” is a journey through the ever
expanding universe of electronic sounds,
ending up as brilliant, innovative and ahead of its time.
And it will be ready for E-Day 2015!! And if all goes well Pierre will
be there to witness the birth of this release.
So we have as special guest Pierre Salkazanov ala Zanov also on E-Day 2015.
Not perform but to speak to and meet for the release of the GR-216 "In
the Course of Time"!!!
