Ultima Thule is celebrating their 25th anniversary with a three-program series of original and unreleased compositions by ambient artists. My contributory track, entitled 'Departure', will be broadcast in the last (3rd) episode, Ultima Thule 1012, on March 9, 2014. The podcast will be also available soon.
What a mild week over here in Witten, and these temperatures not only lets one's heart beat a little faster of excitment, but also the show's tracks are speeding up a bit. So get up and into it with tonight's sounds, starting with Ephemeral Mists and their Illusions Blooming Softly. We also listen into The Decennium Edition by Vortex Elements. From Argentina, 1981 joins in with his Neodimia. And then we visit The Expanse by 4T Thieves. A nice compilation of various styles named Pass the Mic follows, featuring some electronica as well, where we picked tracks by Michael Hoffmann and Foehrb TS. Well, and the episodes closer is the brand new album by Weldroid, Cure Light Wounds. Hope you enjoy the music as much as I did.
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".
