Vangelis in 18 months
Posted Wed Dec 07, 2016 12:03 pm by Rapsodies
EM News This comes from the Elsewhere site, well-known to all Vangelis fans. Read it, please, and say what you think :

"PP: Juno arrived at Jupiter recently, on 5th July.
V: It did. It is now in orbit around Jupiter collecting information. The mission will be completed in approximately 18 months.
PP: Does this mean that in 18 months, we will have yet another complete musical composition, just like that of Rosetta?
V: Most definitely."

New Andrew Forrest release, Stillness Moving
Posted Wed Dec 07, 2016 6:30 am by alchemy
EM News Image

Hello Ambient Space Music Friends

Welcome to Stillness Moving, the second volume of my “Source Quartet”. This CD is a musical interpretation of the ultimate non-dual reality, where all movement is seen as an expression of stillness, and all manifestation is seen as an expression of emptiness.
The track titles are direct pointers to this existential paradox. The intention from my point of view as composer and performer, is to maximize the positive emotional impact and healing resonance of each piece of music.
It features the usual trademark sounds…the interweaving of classical melodic passages, with monumental deep space textures, shimmering arpeggiated sequences, and otherworldly sonic palettes, that take the listener on a transformational, profound, inner healing sound journey.
Typical sounds you will hear are: lush and subtle strings, electric pianos, flute, oboe, harp, syncopated bells, Tibetan bowls, chimes, Oriental overtone vocals, classical solo voices, choirs, arpeggiated synth sequences and swirling synth abstract textures.

Track Titles:
1. Emerge ~ 25:12
2. Enrapture ~ 20:30
3. Evanesce ~ 14:12
Total Length: 60:00

You can buy this through www.andrewforrest.co.nz as a physical CD, and also hear 2 minute soundbites of the tracks. Downloads are available from http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/AndrewForrest

syndae - episode 370
Posted Sun Dec 04, 2016 8:00 pm by treibklang
EM News Our garden is still sprinkled with piles of leaves, although autumn is nearly gone over here. Frosty nights do their parts in ending this colorful time. What I love about it, is the peacefulness, going towards the final quarter of the lifecycle which in a last effort blooms up for ones eye. Well, duh, not that I am in the least romantic. Just like the view. And there is an equivalent in music, which is quiet as well, ambient in general. So here it comes, to please your mind and ears, in form of tracks by I.N.Kh.E. (Solstice), Owann (Eternal Return), Weingarten-Charlton (Where There is Light), Spiral Vremeni & Pleroma Orchestra (Point: Cape Fligely. Part 2. Night), DigitalSimplyWorld (Sounds of Autumn), Øystein Jørgensen (Midnight Radio Compilation 77), Lingua Lustra (Slow Time), and Markus Reuter (Live in Pomona 2016).

Lighten up at:

Yours, Stefan

New release at SynGate: "Atlantic Treasure" by *TC
Posted Fri Dec 02, 2016 4:56 pm by SynGate
New releases Image

After many years TC grabbed the DAT tapes and digitized tracks from the earlier Atlantic Treasure album, to take them to his lab and do something amazing with them. Some material has been in the archives for 22 years (!) After listening to all the tracks and adding a new track, something magical happened in the studio: the story came back to life again! Suddenly TC was experiencing all the pieces at a very intense level, went through an inspiring mastering process, got even more excited as he could hear a growing spectrum of frequencies, deep dynamics, well balanced melodies that started to convince the artist very strongly about what the Atlantic Treasure is all about …

The Story Retold and Remastered for your ears only, in a sound quality like never before.

RIP Pauline Oliveros
Posted Sat Nov 26, 2016 9:32 am by BruecknerAmbient
EM News American composer and accordion player Pauline Oliveros, a pioneer of experiemental and electronic music, who coined the term "deep listening", passed away yesterday (aged 84).



Maybe not many here are aware of her work, however it was of great influence, especially to ambient musicians such as Robert Rich...

"As a founding member of the San Francisco Tape Music Center in the 1960s, Oliveros collaborated with Terry Riley, playing in the first performance of Riley’s ‘In C’, and modular synthesist Morton Subotnick.
She later became director of the Center, where she developed a philosophy of listening as a ritual and healing process, an approach she described through her coinage “deep listening”.
Her Deep Listening Band specialized in performing recording in resonant or reverberant spaces, and her touchstone album Deep Listening was recorded in 1989 in a disused cistern 14 feet beneath the ground."

Here are a few links, to articles about her, some lectures she gave and some of her music:

EM News Hi,

I'm Dimitri, headhoncho and basically about anything else at Wool-E Shop, a small recordshop in the suburbs of Gent, Belgium.
I take up the small niche in alternative music that ranges from post-punk, new wave, synthpop to all things experimental electronic: (dark)ambient, noise, industrial, Berlin School, drone, modern classical and early experimental synthmasters.
Next to that I have two labels: Wool-E Tapes & Wool-E Discs
The two labels are basically dedicated to the same things as the shop, the first on tape and the latter on cd Wink
