Zed - Visions Of Dune 2014
Posted Sun Sep 28, 2014 4:08 am by phaedra2008
EM News The work of Bernard Szajner inspired by the Dune sci-fi novel was released on LP in 1979 & reissued on CD in 1999 by Spalax.

This new remastered reissue is presented in a nice digipack including 2 bonus tracks.

Musically, for me Visions of Dune was the clear line dividing listenable music from industrial noise with musical hints.

After all these years not much has changed for me, I find the album just as weird as when it was released.

But some consider it a classic they rarely listen to though Very Happy

The remastering is not bad but not good either, comparing to the Spalax CD it is quite louder & the EQ lifted the hiss which was not that evident on the Spalax CD.

On speakers this can qualify as a decent up to date remaster but on headphones which a lot of people listen with the sound is very forward, loud & the hiss very noticeable during certain passages.

The 2 bonus tracks #7 The Duke & #14 Spice sound like coming from the same recording sessions and fit well within the album concept, the result is an overall better than average reissue if you like the music.

Bungay Bash returns under another name and a new venue.
Posted Sun Sep 28, 2014 1:19 am by admusic
EM News AD Music is pleased to announce that it will be holding an all day electronic music festival again on 30th May 2015. The venue is "The Cut" Theatre in the Suffolk town of Halesworth. This is a better all round venue than before, and Halesworth is a bigger town with more amenities for visitors and a rail connection.

Aside from the new venue, the big difference is that for this event we will be providing virtual tickets!

More details to follow soon.

syndae - episode 272
Posted Fri Sep 26, 2014 10:00 pm by treibklang
EM News As we learn from physics nowadays, time is relative. And while 30 minutes seem a relatively short amount of time, it may offer a whole universe to you. Like tonight's show, serving about half an hour of gourmet music. It all starts with the upcoming release by Erik Wøllo and Bernhard Wöstheinrich named Weltenuhr. Then we have something you Oughta See from the audio table of General Fuzz. Of course, we have the brand new EP Direction Green by Broekhuis, Keller & Schönwälder on our playlist. You will get Corel Cave's Panorama tonight. And fade out with a track from the new Midnight Radio Compilation number 26 by Corvus Makuro Project.

Taking all the time in the world with: http://www.syndae.de/episodes/626-episode-272

Yours, Stefan

The Sound of Silas - new CD + a review on Sonic Immersion
Posted Fri Sep 26, 2014 9:40 pm by BruecknerAmbient
EM News Well - two of my wonderful musical friends were active again:

Cousin Silas, aka David Hughes, one of my favorite ambient musicians, just released the double CD "The Sound of Silas" (his first physical release in his career, btw.) on Thomas Mathie's excellent label weareallghosts.

Go for it - here:



Well, both of them belong to the (closer) circle of my virtual friends, and I also had the privilege to collaborate with David, therefore I am obviously (or at least potentially) biased, and won't praise this album further (although I think it has deserved a lot of praise...).

Fellow EM Portal member Bert Strolenberg, on the other hand, is detached and unbiased enough to give You a more objective idea of this album, so please read his recent review on his excellent page "Sonic Immersion" - here:


Just one detail there I found a little bit surprising; Bert says:

"I have to confess I never heard of this very prolific musician before..."

Now, if I search for "Cousin Silas" here on the EM Portal, I get like more than 30 results, among them three dedicated threads.
It seems like I over-estimated the spread of information in this place...

Schiller - Symphonia
Posted Fri Sep 26, 2014 12:48 pm by phaedra2008
EM News Finally Schiller ended up like most successful musicians do (except for Kraftwerk): surrounded by a real orchestra Laughing

The live recording took place in July at Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin capturing his greatest hits as well as some new music, scheduled for release in October, as usual it will be available in various "deluxe combo" packs of CD's, DVD, Bluray & booklet.


While a great performance and production musically this seems to be one for the hardcore fans, most of the music is existing with some guest musicians and also substituted vocalists different from the original versions, then the 60 piece orchestra a territory explored by many including Vangelis, TD, Yanni, Kitaro, Jarre to name a few.
