Dear friends and listeners, Volker Lankow, Suzannah Moon and myself are happy to announce the release of our collaboration MONSOON OFFERINGS today!!!! Mr. Green


All visuals we used for the cover, booklet, inlay and CD imprint are taken from various marvellous paintings by Paul Nicholson (see also pictures in the comments below).

Mastering was provided by Markus Reuter.

The album is available from both Volker's and my Bandcamp page.



The download contains two bonus tracks (one visible on the page, the other not).

PLEASE NOTE that shipping of physical copies starts in a few days, when our esteemed distributor, Kilian of Syngate, will have returned from his well deserved Easter Holiday vacation… Very Happy

BrĂĽckner - Improvisation with looper, synth and piano on YT
EM News Poster: BruecknerAmbient - Date: Sat Apr 20, 2019 11:54 pm
Here's another live@home video thingy… Wink


Already a while ago, I bought this little stomper pedal, a BOSS RC-1 Loop Station (my first looper, actually) but so far couldn't find to do a lot with it. But when I recently had a day off, I sat down to toy around with it a bit, and this is the result…

For those who are interested in technical details, here's the (rather humble) setup:
My old KORG 05R/W midi modul (the left corner on top of the piano, you hardly see it in the video) feeds into the BOSS RC-1, and the output first runs through an ALESIS MICROVERB II and from there to the mixer.
The (old, sample based but still decent) TECHNICS piano goes directly to the mixer, but has an effect chain (two delays, a chorus and a reverb) added in Cubase, where I recorded the output.
Some additional sounds come from a second laptop (a low drone in the first place, and I actually forgot which VSTi I used for it...).

So, this is just an improvisation created on the spur of the moment and including some bum notes and other shortcomings, but all in all I liked the atmosphere of it...

Pillion – Enigmas

Pillion – Enigmas
CD/Digital Download, Groove Unlimited, 1980/2019
Here’s one of those pinnacle releases of the past that never saw a cd-release after it came out in 1980. On this 54-minute live-recording, Walter Rothe and Guy Drieghe –D give their best in spacy, classic Berlin School style. Those familiar with the original vinyl recording will be amazed what stunning job was done to restore the full audio and make it sound seamless to this level, as the original had some serious drop-outs along various other technical issues of quite a severe nature. The sound and intrinsic atmosphere of the 28-minute title track comes close and seems much inspired by Schulze’s “Timewind”. “Pompei” though proves a beautiful evolving longform soundscape composition with mysterious currents and twists leaning toward classic TD, shifting to elevating impact on the second half of the 24-minute piece.
So bravo for this re-release of “Enigmas” (coming with new cover) and its most thoughtful audio archeology where every original detail is preserved for others to know what it was like when it was created....

syndae - episode 475
EM News Poster: treibklang - Date: Fri Apr 19, 2019 8:00 pm
It's easter time. And while I am not sure whether any of you celebrate it for religious reasons, to me, like christmas, it's a more quiet time to spend with the ones you love and care for. So, not too hard tunes tonight, not too seren, therefore I picked tracks to serve you a fine mix to chill and have fun. On tonight's playlist you will find Planet of the Arps (Planet of the Arps), Klangzaun, Audiokonstrukte (Heavy Dub Vol. 4), Haelium (Rising Tides 013), Santah (Tunguska Chillout Grooves Vol. 2), Diskret (Diskret).

Ashen Simian: Phantasm
New releases Poster: cyberiad2001 - Date: Fri Apr 19, 2019 11:38 am

the final part of my solo trilogy (Shambala and Urania are the previous ones) is now out. You can take a listen here

or watch

all material is recorded in the late 2018-early 2019 and are just what has come naturally... not a single thought for genres etc... Material floats between ambient, berlin school, idm, traditional electronic music, etc. Mostly with analog gear, but also digital vintage synths in the more ambient passages, especially...

just let it roll and let the sounds take you where they might...

cheers, ami
