syndae - episode 495
Posted Fri Oct 04, 2019 8:00 pm by treibklang
EM News Back from a fantastic Electronic Circus with great and diverse musical acts like Martin Stürtzer and Schwarz. A new location with much space and lots of nice people made the weekend an event to remember. And the next one is at the horizon with E-Live end of October. I hope to make it to Oirschot, but one never knows. After such an exciting time in Detmold, I am looking for some rest and relaxation. So here comes a rather peaceful edition with also great tracks by Andy Pickford (Psymanteum), Imaginary Landscape (Nothing Left Behind), Frank Makowski (Canon der Finsternisse), André Perim (Side Effects), Static Dreamscapes.

Preparing for mind fasting at

Yours, Stefan

Colin Benders - Modular Jam Session (YT)
Posted Sun Sep 22, 2019 8:12 pm by BruecknerAmbient
EM News Just listening to this gentleman (who I never had heard of before) delivering a great improvised set on a huge modular system.
All staged by the Red Bull Music Academy (isn't corporate cultural sponsoring great...? Rolling Eyes )

Although this has some dance beats, everything else would qualify as great good old sequencer based Berlin School, and not the worst at all...


P.S. There's also an interesting talk by Colin, from which I already learned these two things:

- He's Dutch... (that may explain a thing or two Wink )

- He used to be a member of the (excellent) Kyteman Orchestra (which I do quite adore, as far as I'm familiar with it) - but wait...

- He actually turns out to be Kyteman himself! Shocked

Anyway - here are two more links, the talk, and my favorite Kyteman track:

History of Electronic Music
Posted Sat Sep 21, 2019 11:42 pm by jmj713
EM News I have been thinking of starting some kind of online project (podcast, YouTube channel, blog) on the overall history of electronic music. I have been gathering ideas and lists for a couple of years now, and the goal is to cover electronic music in depth, year by year, using a very wide scope (electronic music to me is any music involving electronic instruments and tools, so this would include genres outside the so-called "electronic music" genre, such as hip-hop, pop, and new wave, as a few examples).

I don't think I will be able to actually do this by myself in a comprehensive way that I feel this needs to be, and I do think this would be a very valuable resource once it's realized. If anyone thinks they might be able to join me in this odyssey, or offer some assistance, I think a team of like-minded individuals with diverse tastes and backgrounds would make a project like this actually worth doing.

I consider myself pretty knowledgeable in all kinds of electronic music, and I know this particular forum is intended more for the traditional kind of EM, but again, the goal is to chart the complete history of electronic music as a whole, from pre-electronic roots with various musical instruments that paved the way for the early 20th century experiments like the Theremin, to the academic music concrete and tape loops and experimental computer music of the 1950s, to the Moog, and then to all the synths, and then the computers, and the genre explosion in the internet age.

If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, please let me know here or via PM. I know there are lots of sources out there with sort of similar premises, but thus far I have not encountered a single resource where the dedication was for a narrative history of electronic music, from the beginning till now.
