Hi, Guys! Glad to announce that: COSMIC NIGHTS 2014 is ready!
COSMIC NIGHTS is an annual International Festival of Electronic Space Music.
Every two years the Festival-Edition will be organized in the BRUSSELS PLANETARIUM. The year in between the COSMIC NIGHTS Intimate-Edition will be organized on another special “space” location.
This year we have chosen the KARTUIZERKERK at Sint-Martens-Lierde (Belgium)
A real intimate place for the next COSMIC NIGHTS 2014! All artists are looking forward to it! We are preparing an unforgettable cosmic evening here on SATURDAY 17 MAY 2014!
Brian Eno and Karl Hyde (from Underworld) quite sound like a dream team to me, so I'm curious what their collaboration (released by Warp in May) will sound like...
Then again, I'm nor sure if it will turn out like I will like it, for "The Satellites" (the album's opener they have on SundCloud as an appetizer) is not entirely my cup of tea.
Not bad per se, but instead of featuring, say, Underworld-ish hypnotizing beats and sequencer patterns over Eno-esque soundscapes, it sounds rather like 80ies Brit pop-rock updated to me, more in the vein of "Another Day on Earth".
Tonight at 11 pm EST/GMT-5 on Galactic Travels, I'll conclude the month-long Special Focus on Max Corbacho. The Featured CD at Midnight will be disk two from "The Ocean Inside" on ad21music. The Special Focus page is at http://soundscapes.us/gt/playlists/2014/focus.html#feb
Galactic Travels is an electronic, ambient, and space music show that airs each Thursday at 11:04 pm on WDIY 88.1 FM, Allentown and Bethlehem, 93.9 FM in Easton and Phillipsburg, 93.7 FM in Fogelsville and Trexlertown, on the internet, and in High Definition Radio at 88.1 FM. Listen at http://wdiy.org on the internet.
Just stumbled upon this announcement by German radio DJ Olaf Zimmermann (translation by me...):
The band loom (johannes schmoelling, jerome froese & rob waters) is guest in "elektro beats" on February the 5th and will introduce their album "the tree hates the forest" !!!"
...yes, he wrote February in his post, however someone asked him in a comment if it shouldn't rather read "March", to which Zimmermann replied he was "sometimes a bit gaga with dates" - whatever that means.
I guess those who are interested better have a look at the official announcements...
