Hi All.

Some great new releases are on their way for us EM Lovers.
But the one I am very excited about is the new Rene Splinter - Singularities.
Because Groove will release it as a regular CD!!
I have heard the music and it is great, Rene makes music that stands
out of the crowd. Its melodic, evocative and although it has ties to the
past it is modern and alive.
I am working on the mastering of the album with Rene and we hope to
release it by the end of the month.

This week will see also the release of Bernd Kistenmachers -
Antimatter!! I am very eager to hear that.
Bernd has been a great musician and his last albums where great, so I
am looking forward to that.
There is also a new musician under the name Berlin Heritage with his
first release Land of the Rising Sun check the review section for more
information on this. And there is also after many years a new release
by Rudiger Gleisberg - Symphonic Arts (cd).
More information about that also in the review section.
We have also added many of the Mooch release, if you like a different
for of EM (a bit more space rock like) I am sure you are
going to like this. Many are very nice priced with 2 Albums for the
price of one!!

And finally a new release by Steve Roach - Back to Life (2-cd),
looking forward to hear that when it is in.

And then tonight we have "Friends at the ENCK".
We start at 20.00 and it is in Oirschot (near Eindhoven) in Theatre The Enck.

But it looks lie we have a flue epidemic on our hands.
2 musicians are ill GERT EMMENS and TRANZIT !
And also already 7 people who where going to come have notified me
that they are struck by the flue!

But all others will be there Smile so come and join us, the weather is fine.
No snow or bif freezes this time like last time Smile
We won't end after 22.45 and the grand cafe is cosy and warm.

We will be there!!

Harold & Eric v.d. Heijden,
FD Project,
Ron Boots,
Jamie O'Callaghan,
Paul Hellings
TOMMY BETZLER (ex Klaus Schulze percussion and drummer)

Because of the concerts and work the last week I did not have time to
make a new radio show, but I got a few requests to air the holiday version
one more time because many where on holiday at that time and did not hear it.
So that will run this week and I promise you that next week there will
be a new show.

Dreamscape Radio has music this week from the following artists:
Adelbert Von Deyen, Geigertek, Ramp, Ron Boots, Nautlilus
e.a Dreamscape Radio show 171 is now on-line. (Same as issue 169)

Thanks for your time!!

Rüdiger Gleisberg - for over twenty five years this name has stood for
remarkable creativity and out of the ordinary Instrumental music.
Gleisberg (b. 1963) studied Music and Literature at the University of
Paderborn. Having studied Classical guitar, he began playing in
various Rock bands at school, and then switched to Keyboards,
fascinated by the instrument's range of expression and sounds. This
attraction to working with Keyboards and Synthesizers led to his
building a small recording studio, which has meanwhile expanded into a
modern digitally-equipped studio.
His first compositions were commissioned for Theatre productions, and
signalled the beginning of the development of his now clearly
recognisable style, to be found in his music for Films, numerous
releases of his own material, together with joint projects.
Rüdiger Gleisberg works as a Music teacher. He writes commissioned
pieces, and has worked under the name SOLITAIRE (together with Elmar
Schulte). A joint project with Mathias Grassow and Carsten Agthe
resulted in the NOSTALGIA and KARMACOSMIC albums. His symphonic
orchestral laid out compositions, wich were brought in partially by
members of well-known symphony orchestras gladly used for nature-films
and audiobook-productions.

With his current album "Symphonic Arts" Rüdiger Gleisberg has
fulfilled a personal desire, thus creating a milestone in his musical
career. For the first time Gleisbergs symphonic and complex
compositions were recorded by a symphony orchestra . Cinematic
orchestral sound in the style of romantic splendor leads the listener
into fantastic landscapes of great breadth and depth. Symphonic
orchestral instrumental music in the style of great romantic and
dramatic Hollywood movies.

After the recordings, Ludmilla Karetzkajy, 1st violoncellist
of the Philharmonic Chamber Ochestra of Odessa said:
"It was a totally new and very interesting experience recording
those pieces. I would have never thought that contemporary
music from Germany could be that emotional. I feel honoured
to have been allowed being a part of this recording"

For Lovers of the Berlin School Sound!

Berlin Heritage is a new name in the field of electronic music, who is
going back to the roots of the 70s era of electronic music: At that time
Berlin school artists like Klaus Schulze or Tangerine Dream took their
time to develop long compositions.
You can hear mysterious, hypnotic slow motion-like atmospheres that lead
to old-fashioned sequencer patterns that sometimes remind us of the
early work of Bernd Kistenmacher.
The nostalgic mellotron sounds and the deep space sound clouds create
a fascinating bizarr atmosphere.
By the excellent blend of timeless soundscapes and lovely old sequences
you can enjoy the whole album like a smooth and unique Berlin School
Dream and drift away!

Oh! This is a wonderful one. It's a small marvel of contemplative
music and a pure musical delight that Justin Vanderberg offers as his
first opus on the Spotted Peccary label. Weaved on reflections and
questionings of memories as well as their realities, Synthetic
Memories is flowing as if by magic into our ears to touch the
slightest hidden recesses of our soul. It's a majestic musical
adventure which breathes by our bewitchment all throughout its taming.
Synthetic Memories exudes tranquility on 8 titles with rhythms and
ambiances which become entangled in a stunning symbiosis where morphic
and oniric layers flirt with fine sequenced momentums. This 2nd opus
from Justin Vanderberg is a masterpiece of poetry without words and a
splendid album of an incredible musical depth which will know how to
captivate your hearing as much as your feelings.
Astral winds and rustles jostle elements of life to introduce the
wonderful "From Below", a track written with Jon Jenkins. Clanic
percussions à la Steve Roach make their tom-toms resound through these
synth waves which seem to caress spiritual water-waves, while a
hypnotic rhythm submerges our aura. Fine guitars chords dawdle in
ethereal atmospheres, drawing thin loops which float and run on a
rhythm set on pulsations and hammering became louder and heavier.
This rhythm faces the emotional amplitude of our soul, while crystal
clear notes of piano leap out from the forgetting to forge a melody
lost among the ancestral rhythms which dance in these morphic
atmospheres, sculpting musical souvenirs as distant as the first works
of Patrick O' Hearn and those, more desertic, of Steve Roach.
Doubtless one of the most beautiful track of 2011, "From Below" is
bursting with passion and emotivity to reach its paroxysm in a finale
that capsizes our last expulsions of passion. "When I Walk" follows
the angelic ashes of "From Below" with a beautiful melodious approach
where the notes of piano run with drummed pulsations under the breaths
of an iridescent synth which push its astral waves towards the intro
of "Synthetic Memories". The title-track of Synthetic Memories is also
its heart. The peak of emotions converges there to filter doubts which
will go out on more moderate and more poetic titles. But for the
moment, the longest title of Synthetic Memories awakens its sequenced
pulsations from the iridescent claws of a morphic synth. They run and
undulate with delicacy, espousing the curve of the sinuous waves which
blow such as enslaved choirs, mixing marvelously the ethereal
elements and drummed sequences in a musical canvas where the constant
rhythm adopts the tranquility of ambient elements. Pulsating sequences
may be proud oneself on other pulsations more heterogeneous, metallic
and cawing that it's not changing at all the mood of serenity which
prevails through out the soft rhythmic evolution of "Synthetic Memories".
Fine oscillations modify subtly the long journey of "67", a pure ode
to serenity where we perceive the clear influence of Steve Roach on
Justin Vanderberg's ambient movements. Fragile, crystal clear
arpeggios tinkle punctually and follow the fine inflections which feed
this oblong linear movement where suave floating lines undulate and
get enlacing into beautiful and dark angelic breaths. These crystal
clear arpeggios are the core of the morphic and sequenced melodies
that we find in Synthetic Memories. They glitter and swirl with the
grace of the winds on "The Path", another good subjecting title where
sequences of glasses spin around fine drummed percussions and around
heavy silvery winds. With its slow morphic but all the same rather
musical phases, "Dusk" transports the dusts of its slow and dark winds
towards the melodious peace of mind of "Drops" and its notes of piano
which fall with a beautiful effect of canon in a curious cerebral
carousel. A beautiful melody escapes from it. Playing on mathematical
keys, it slips into our ears with a virgin innocence to continue its
tinkled road towards the musical tremors, the dark and iridescent
winds of "Cold Brightness", concretizing the subliminal beauty of this
wonderful opus that is Synthetic Memories.
I know that I tend to become passionate sometimes and that my emotions
a bit juvenile resurface when my ears cross a work of such
sensitivity. If Synthetic Memories from Justin Vanderberg is not
typical of heavy sequenced works, the fact remains that its beauty has
of equal only its musical purity. With its skillful dosage of oniric
rhythms and celestial ambiances, Synthetic Memories will jostle your
emotions. Doubtless the most beautiful musical work of 2011, Synthetic
Memories is an imperative which has to be in your record collection,
and that no matter if we are followers of heavy or ambient Berlin
School because it's a perfect symbiosis of 2 these genres but with
more depth and limpidity.
