syndae - episode 452
EM News Poster: treibklang - Date: Fri Oct 19, 2018 8:00 pm
What an exciting time. Tomorrow is the third event to visit and present the Sound of Syndae CD. I've been to Oirschot before, several times, but it was never like this. And more than that there will be really cool acts on stage the whole day. I really hope to meet quite a lot of you guys to talk music. Ron Boots is doing a great job there over the past 20 or so years, with E-Live and E-Day being a beacon of the EM world. But let's check on tonight's edition of syndae, which will present some amazing music as well. And brand new stuff as well that just reached my hands. It's kind of action packed but far from technoid. Just get the volume right and have a joyful listen to Time Away & Myth (Dreaming of Other Worlds), Weldroid (End of Mission), Parallel Worlds & Dave Bessell (Dystopia), Aevin (The Aftermath), Red Plane (Mask), and Audio Cephlon (Oumuamua).

WintherStormer - d.e.s.h.
New releases Poster: terjewi - Date: Thu Oct 18, 2018 7:23 pm
WintherStormer released their fifth electronic album called «d.e.s.h.» with a concert in Oslo on October 13th 2018.

http://wintherstormer.no/


WintherStormer is sonically adventurous. The sounds themselves saturated, and the canvas of music ever so permiated with expression. Often symphonic in the way that the musical elements are given an organic polyphonic treatment rather than the ordinary song based pop/rock thing with solos in between. Harmonically venturing far beyond the ordinary two-chord minor concept.

d.e.s.h. is an acronym for ‘diatonic elaboration of static harmony’ and gives a hint of the diversity with which WintherStormer treats the harmonic element around their sequencers.

As the previous albums from WintherStormer, “d.e.s.h.” is a daring adventure into every corner of the group’s leeway with an energy of fierceness and beauty. Pushing forward as far as possible, and then a little further.

WintherStormer:
terje winther: synthesizers, sequencers, electronics
erik stormer: synthesizers, sequencers, electronics
atle pakusch gundersen: guitar, electronics, flute, etc.

Cosmic Hoffmann -- gone but not forgotten
EM News Poster: dronescape - Date: Sat Oct 13, 2018 7:50 pm
Around this time last year -- it was 14th October --, I was on my way home from Hanover where I had taken my Prophet to be fixed. While driving home, all of a sudden I was feeling an incessant urge to dig out an old and unreleased track Klaus and I had recorded back in 1996 when warming up for the "Traces" recordings. At home, I found the DAT and transferred it to my hard-drive, thinking "this is actually quite nice, maybe I should release it".

Later that evening -- it was about bedtime -- I was browsing EM Portal, just to discover Bernhard's message about Klaus' passing -- I was deeply shocked (and still am) and could hardly find any sleep that night. For some reason, his family did not want his death to be announced, and the book of condolences over at Schallwelle disappeared without a trace, just like the MoM and Cosmic Hoffmann websites. In some way, it resembled the way Klaus himself would refer to Cheech and Chong's "Up in Smoke"...

In the course of the past year, I kept coming across things Klaus had left behind in the 28 years we had known each other -- postcards, letters, recordings, the infamous "Herbert Schmidt Show" tapes, promotional material from his own musical past and of his bands Impulse and Archaeopteryx, pictures taken when we were walking the forests near his home, things he had brought from his journeys to India, and of course -- the Mellotron.


Even though we parted ways at some point, musically, I miss him dearly.

P'Faun "The Golden Peacock" soon on Groove Unlimit
EM News Poster: BruecknerAmbient - Date: Wed Oct 10, 2018 7:09 pm
I'm happy to announce that P'Faun's first full album

THE GOLDEN PEACOCK

will be available soon (most likely "in sync" with the E-Live festival in two weeks) as (real!) CD on Ron Boot's label Groove Unlimited.

The album has been in the works (off and on) for more than five years and includes studio versions of most of the songs played in two concerts in 2013 by "Betzler & Brückner" (the earlier version of the band) - plus some more...

The style is (obviously) close to P'Faun's debut EP "Sp'Roque" (and earlier Betzler & Brückner albums) - which means an electronic variety of space rock (or a rocking variety of electronic space... Wink ).

A teaser with some excerpts will be shared soon via YouTube and / or Soundcloud (we're working on that...).

Of course, You can also come and see the band at E-Live, where we're going to play quite a few tracks from the album...


P'Faun is:

Tommy Betzler: electronic & acoustic drums, percussion & gongs

Sammy David: electric and acoustic guitars, bass guitar

Michael Brückner: synthesizer, keyboards, electronics, processed voice

...together with five wonderful musical guests - mentioned in the track list below:

1. So Ham (A Suite) (14;49 min)
...featuring Cilia di Ponte (voice) and Doris Hach (cello)

2. Flying Fish (7:00 min)

3. King Gong (9:15)
...featuring Gerd Weyhing (guitar, looped guitar, bass)

4. House In The Storm - Part 2 (by P'Cock) (10:5Cool

5. Number Five (Is Still Alive) (7:18 min)
...featuring Harald Nies (guitar)

6. P'Quences (14:38 min)
...featuring Rene van der Wouden (synths, keyboards)

7. Blue Pearls - Part 1 (7:23 min)
8. Blue Pearls - Part 2 (7:04 min)


The album was mixed and produced by Michael Brückner & Sammy David and mastered by Hans-Dieter Schmidt.


I'd also like to mention that the wonderful cover painting is by the Brazilian painter and illustrator Luciana Lupe Vasconcelos, who's other... (Read More)
