syndae - episode 372
Posted Fri Jan 13, 2017 8:00 pm by treibklang
EM News We are back in time. Yes! Well, not in the past, in the present still. But tonight's the night, Friday night. Spot on to find the latest edition of syndae. And we start into the new year with hot new stuff as well. Also, the calendar for ambient and electronic music events is already quite full, really promising and busy year 2017 will be. I hope you will enjoy syndae, too, as I am happy to continue serving diverse and exciting music for you. Like the tracks of this show, with music by David Wright & Carys (Prophecy), Narcose (Panda Eyes), Min-Y-Llan (Sectioned v6.0), Marque and Reprisal and Nomadic Jurassic (Fields), and Stefan Erbe (The Freedom of Movement).

The fun is on:

Yours, Stefan

centrozoon - 217 XII
Posted Sun Jan 08, 2017 12:28 pm by bewoest
New releases released January 7, 2017 | Recorded live on the 20th Anniversary Tour at Starlite Gallery, Southbridge, MA, USA on November 16 2016.


These pieces are unedited and the mix is just like what was going out to the P.A. that night. That might include clicks and digital dropouts.

Date: 16 NOV 2016
Venue: Starlite, Southbridge MA

This was the last show booked/confirmed for the 2016 centrozoon U.S. tour, finally filling a gaping hole in the tour calendar wedged between the Philly and Connecticut shows.

This club/art gallery/performance space in Southbridge was recommended to me during a phone conversation with Tom Palmieri (a friend who manages the prog band Circuline). After doing some research of the venue (their Facebook page), I saw this as a perfect fit, not only because of their proximity to the next night's show (which was a +), but mainly for their appreciation and support of diverse artists and projects (the performance space is great, too!). Already having an established relationship with the venue, Tom graciously made the booking for us (like I said, Tom - I owe ya' one!).

During soundcheck we quickly discovered the wonky (i.e., "unorthodox") method in which the sound system was wired: basically mono - the right channel powering both the performance space as well as the bar area next door and the left channel powering the subs (???). This wouldn't work for us; not only for the obvious loss of spatial placement within the stereo spectrum of various sounds, loops, etc., but for the spacial/phasing effects now being destructive (in short,"phasing" refers to the splitting of the audio signal and modulating one of the signals, resulting in a pleasing, lush sound when played stereo...however, played mono can cause the split signals to periodically cancel each other out, resulting in a sound that's not so nice... that's just the physics of waveform cancellation).

Happy new year and two new Jaja releases
Posted Mon Jan 02, 2017 12:01 am by jaja
New releases Happy new year to all. Wink

Hope you had a good and relaxed time. I spent my time with the creation of new music and so this new year started for me with two new years eve releases.

Beyond the horizons

Beyond the horizons is the third part of the contemporary EP-series which features piano and classical music. It is a contemplative musical interpretation of thoughts and worlds beyond what can be said and refers to the Japanese aesthetics YÅ«gen. The four songs were composed and played live on my Roland JD-800 synthesizer in winterly nights of January/February 2016. Main frequency of the EP is 429,0 Hz.



Through the belt of Orion

This album was written in late winter nights in December 2016 where our companions were the stars of Orion every night until the early morning. Orion is one of the mystic old star constellations and carries an amazing world of deep sky objects. This album is premiering my new Roland XV-88 synthesizer. Besides I used several outboard equipment by TC Electronic, Akai, DBX and Allen & Heath. The main album frequency is 429,2 Hz.



There are no CD-plans right now but both releases will be available in the future as limited CDr-editions.

Best, Jana

Winter-Light V/A ambient compilation
Posted Tue Dec 27, 2016 6:58 pm by BruecknerAmbient
EM News I think the time is now at hand to share some great news with You (great for me, at least Wink ):

Over the past couple of weeks (well: actually months by now) I had the pleasure to do a (yet unreleased) in-depth interview with drone ambient pioneer Mathias Grassow, and in the process of our ongoing question-and-answer exchange, Mathias had the kindness to invite me to do a collaborational track with him for this year's "Winter-Light" compilation - no need to say that I was *extremly* happy and excited about this, as Mathias is an artist who I adore since many years! Very Happy

The V/A compilation is going to be available soon as a 2 CD set, including the track which resulted from our collaboration (see the promo video link below; but please note that the actual music in that video is by one of the other artists...).

Here's one of the official (I think) promo texts:

"Winter-Light Records release a teaser video for their upcoming compilation, "...That First Season."

The double CD will release in January of 2017. "...That First Season" spans over 140 minutes of exclusive music.

Artists on the compilation include: seetyca, Gydja, Phantom Ship, Foetusdreams, Nexus Sun, ABBILDUNG, Charadriiform & Filivs Macrocosmi, VelgeNaturlig, Rapoon, Jeff Stonehouse, Havdis, Apocryphos, Strom Noir, Kloob, Michael Brückner & Mathias Grassow and Hakobune.

The album has been mastered by Simon Heath, of Atrium Carceri and owner of the Cryo Chamber label.

Seems to be a Dutch label, btw. Wink


The interview which I have mentioned above also will soon be online in one or more ambient / EM magazines (actually I'm just in the process of finishing the English translation, which I hope to accomplish within the next few days...).
