Electronics, sound design: Christian Wittman
Recorded at Nina Studio, Paris (january-march 2023).
Mastering: Michel Geiss
I dedicate this album to all the media people who support independent musicians with reviews, podcasts, playlists, radio shows: you know who you are, my musical trajectory would be impossible without your support and relays....
Electronic music builds possible worlds, particular configurations of space and time. Sounds, harmonics, silences, dimensions and movements are all means to create virtual universes, with their physical laws, their geometry, their genesis and their evolution.
"Orion Nebula" invites listeners to an immersion in a cloud of cosmic light, color, gas and dust located in the heart of the Orion constellation.
The nine stages of this exploration are a weightless journey, in a multidimensional and moving space, crossed by mysterious sound objects which evolve, cross and move away in a stellar choreography.
My music does not tell stories. It describes worlds, with their physical and cosmological laws, between expansion in immense spaces and condensation in the flash of a listening.
It is up to each listener to unwind the threads of his or her listening, between dream and consciousness, between science and fiction, to lose himself or herself in the labyrinth of memories, ideas, sensations and images in order to create his or her own inner film on the soundtrack that I propose.

|Hypnos is winding down
||Poster: dronescape - Date: Wed May 17, 2023 8:49 am
|From their website:
Today weâ€™re announcing that Hypnos Recordings will be winding down and ceasing operations at the end of 2023. This was a hard decision, but we had to be honest with ourselves that we no longer have the time to continue the hard work of operating a record label and mail order business. Itâ€™s better to wind this down properly, and weâ€™re beginning that process now. The Hypnos Forum has been shut down, as it had become increasingly difficult to deal with intrusion from spammers and hackers.
We are very proud of all the music we have helped release out into the world, and all the listeners, recording artists and their music weâ€™ve brought together.
You can still continue to order music from our Soundswim store through the end of the year, and the music will be made available through other outlets thereafter. Our store will offer discounted CDs until weâ€™ve been able to to close everything out, so stay tuned here on this blog, or join our email list if you want to get updates about special deals.
We sincerely thank everyone who went on this journey with us, including listeners, recording artists, music reviewer and resellers.
Mike and Lena Griffin
Hypnos Recordings and Soundswim
Too bad. I enjoyed browsing the forum every now and then, met quite a few interesting people there.

|Space Art - Personal Duty
||Poster: DesertedIslandMusic - Date: Mon May 08, 2023 8:51 pm
|Pre-order the upcoming Space Art album "Personal Duty" from www.desertedislandmusic.nl as well as Bandcamp (www.space-art.bandcamp.com).
The album will be available on CD, LP and as Digital Download.
We are aiming for the release date of July 14th.
Although it is a rather 'safe' schedule, this might be subject of change, mainly because of the slightly unpredictable vinyl delivery times.
There will be more clarity as soon as we have received and approved the LP test pressing. So stay tuned!
And... we have a special deal for the first customers.
The first 50 CD/LP orders of "Personal Duty" will get an exclusive studio photo of the band's current line-up (Dominique Perrier and Tommy Rizzitelli), autographed by both musicians.
There is no specific option to select, but the first orders will automatically receive the freebie. So be sure not to wait too long before ordering the album.
When the 50 autographed photos are gone, we still have another 50 photos without autographs to include with other orders.

|RIP Michael Renzel aka Mick Pluto
||Poster: BruecknerAmbient - Date: Sat May 06, 2023 6:41 pm
|Michael Renzel was a brilliant synthesist and electronic composer, and one of the organisers of the "Dinosaurier-Treffen", a vintage synthesizer gathering in Bocholt / Germany that was a popular event in the local electronic music scene and an opportunity for (mostly German) artists and projects to perform live (for example TMA, Alien Nature or Stephen Parsick. Also Tommy Betzler and I had the honour and the pleasure to performe live there twice, first time in 2013 as "Betzler & BrÃ¼ckner", and five years later as P'Faun) - unforgettable, sweet memories!
Michael passed away recently, much too young, after struggeling with a terminal disease for some time.
He was a kind person and a great, supportive organiser.
He will be missed!

|Capacocha by Lucas Tripaldi

In 1999, three children were found at the top of the Llullaillaco volcano, in the province of Salta, Argentina.
These three kids were Incas and were offered to the mountain as part of a sacred ritual known as "Capacocha" over 500 years ago.
In that ceremony, the Incas took the children in an extensive procession from Cusco to the mountain - where the bodies were buried at an altitude of 6739 meters - in order to "give" them to the gods.
This album musicalizes this sacred ritual and immerses us in the journey through the mountains, with sounds that take us through Krautrock, Berlin School and Ambient.
Instruments: Behringer MS1, Roland Juno 60, Arturia Minibrute2, Elektron A4, Behringer Model D, Korg Minilogue XD, Arturia Beat Step Pro, Classic Guitar and Electric Guitar.
All music composed, arranged, performed, mastered and produced by Lucas Tripaldi
released May 5, 2023
