Cosmic Grunn 11 juli 2015

Concert News Cosmic Grunn


A live event to promote the Electronic Space Music in the north of the Netherlands.
This style of music has its basis in the 70s of the last century. Especially in the experimental sound collages of German bands like Ash Ra Temple, Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze and Cluster. But also the early days of Pink Floyd, Gong, Hawkwind and Faust.


It is for free, but donations are welcome Wink

Interview with Tommy Betzler, by Sylvain Mazars
Posted Thu May 21, 2015 1:22 pm by BruecknerAmbient
EM News Recently, French EM musician, journalist and blogger Sylvain Mazars made a long interview with drummer Tommy Betzler, who co-founded the elctronic rock band P'Cock in the late 70ies, played drums for Klaus Schulze in the 80ies and in more recent years collaborated with many other EM musicians and projects...


Read the full interview (in French) here (or my rough, quick English translation below...):




Tommy Betzler: drummer with a great heart and the cook of stars

Tommy Betzler is a well-known figure of the German music scene. One who never misses an electronic festival, he became known in the late 70s as drummer and co-founder of the rock band P'cock before transforming, by an incredible coincidence, into the personal chef of all the rock stars of the world touring in Germany (Europe, actually). Weakened by a terrible disease, he is back behind the drums since a few years only and involved again in more projects than ever...

Present in the audience - and also on stage - at the public rehearsal of the concert of Michael Brückner and Mathias Brüssel scheduled in Brussels on 29 May, he spontaneously agreed to share his life and his career, humanly and artistically extraordinary.

Q: Why drums?

Tommy Betzler:

At the age of 10 or 12, I knew I wanted to be a drummer. Thanks to my older sister I came in touch with rock music.
For example, it was her who geve me the chance to see Jimi Hendrix on stage in Frankfurt when I was only 9 years old. What a feeling! Mitch Mitchell on drums! But I admired especially Ginger Baker, drummer of Cream. Besides, I also wanted to become a drummer to impress the girls, of course. If you believe that the most prominent musician in a band is the guitarist, you are mistaken. It's the drummer! It was always t . . .

Recent review of Stephen Parsick's "Höllenengel"
Posted Mon May 18, 2015 5:31 pm by BruecknerAmbient
EM News I just stumbled upon this new review of the already slightly older album "Höllenengel" by fellow EMPortal member Stephen Parsick - and since it's a quite positive review, and I'm of the opinion that Stephen deserves kudos for any of his albums (as far as I know them) anyway, I thought I share it here...

It's on the German progrock review page "Babyblaue Seiten" (who are known for speaking their mind if the dislike anything) - and receiving 11 of 15 points here is a good result (I was told on another occasion)...



I won't translate it all (maybe Stephen likes to... Wink ), however here's the reviewer's conclusion:

"Höllenengel" thus offers an interesting, more free-format mix of electronic sound, located somewhere between Dark Ambient, classic electronica à la Berlin School, the more experimental Vangelis (see eg "Beaubourg") and the more melodic / anthemic musical excursions of the same Vangelis, yet develloping a very unique character. Lovers of rather gloomy, atmospheric electronica, who have no aversions towards free sound paintings without sequencer patterns should give this album a listen!"

Read the full review (in German) here:


Are, dear Stephen, still any copies available, by the way...?

Klaus Schønning activity
Posted Tue May 12, 2015 1:00 pm by phaedra2008
EM News The Danish musician has released old and new music as downloads (lossless formats too) on a new website totally new to me, from a quick look they specialise in Scandinavian artists and also sell real stuff like Blurays Laughing

The main new music are the full album Sanctum & the PNG (OST-EP) & a few EP's/lone tracks I have to hear yet.

Sanctum is typical KS symphonic New Age similar to the Symphodyssé works, PNG is more dynamic/melodic with the occasional touch of ethnic(olor).
Both contain some great tracks worth investigating:
