RIP Donald Buchla
Posted Sat Sep 17, 2016 1:46 am by dronescape
EM News This is one of the worst years I can remember, it even feels like the worst year ever -- that many great and iconic figures in music have passed by now -- now it's Don Buchla, inventor of the famous synthesiser of the same Name and Bob Moog's Westcoast counterpart.


Rest in peace, Don -- and thank you for having inspired Serge Tcherepnin to build synthesisers, too.

BrĂĽckner "The Giant Illusion" on Bandcamp
Posted Sun Sep 11, 2016 6:49 pm by BruecknerAmbient
EM News "The Giant Illusion - A Compilation" is available now via Bandcamp (Download or 2 CD-r Set), too.


The little booklet (cover and back of it) looks like this - more pictures below:


Originally, this compilation was released just a few weeks ago via the "Free Music Archive" (16455 plays and 4455 downloads by now Very Happy ).

Unlike the version on FMA, the BC download and the CD-r are NOT for free
(but still at a VERY fair price, I think) however contain EXTRA content - a brand new "bonus" track called "RĂĽbezaal", actually 77 min long Shocked ).

The compilation as such features (mostly) ambient tracks which are part of older releases AND two (long, older) tracks previously not contained on any album (but still familiar to some of my long time listeners, as they were used as free "giveaways" on some occasions).
Also, the tracks are partly remastered and mixed in one uninterrupted flow... Cool

For more info, please read the "liner notes" on Bandcamp.

For & about the (still available) free version see here:

Panoptique Electrical - Disappearing Music For Face
Posted Sat Sep 10, 2016 8:25 pm by geezertek
EM News Panoptique Electrical - Disappearing Music For Face


Sound In Silence is happy to announce the return of Jason Sweeney and his Panoptique Electrical project, presenting his new album Disappearing Music For Face.

This is his second release on the label after last year’s, already sold out, debut album of Great Panoptique Winter, his collaboration project with Richard Adams of Hood and The Declining Winter.

Panoptique Electrical is both an experimental studio project by Jason Sweeney, based in Adelaide, Australia, and instrumentalist collaboration with electronic and classical musicians Zoë Barry, Jed Palmer, Tristan Louth-Robins, Cailan Burns, Noah Symons and Richard Adams and visual artist Steve Phillips.
While in the last decade Jason Sweeney has made Panoptique Electrical his central focus, for about twenty years he has been composing and recording either solo, under the alias of Other People’s Children and Simpático, or with friends in various musical projects like Pretty Boy Crossover, Sweet William, School of Two, Luxury Gap, Par Avion, Madeline’s Wreath, God Burning System, Great Panoptique Winter and Mist & Sea. For almost a decade he has also been composing sound and music scores for live theatre, dance, film/video and installation projects.

Disappearing Music For Face is another outstanding release from Panoptique Electrical that generates many emotional reactions. It’s a collection of eleven brilliant compositions of gentle piano with small touches of minimalist electronic beats, echoing keys and soft swells of heavily reverbed drones. The beauty of this album will truly captivate the audience of both ambient pioneers like Brian Eno and Harold Budd and artists like A Winged Victory For The Sullen, Labradford and mid period Hood recordings.

This is a limited edition of 200 handmade and hand-numbered collectible copies. It is packaged in a lovely hand-s . . .

ANALOG 2020 V/A Compilation feat. R. Rich + others
Posted Tue Sep 06, 2016 10:16 am by BruecknerAmbient
EM News Just learned about this project the other day, maybe some of You are interested.

It features a (short) exclusive track by Robert Rich and 20 more by other artists most of whom I'm not familiar with yet (but still I've enjoyed what I've heard from it so far...).
Not having heard all, I guess this is more about experimental music then melodic / traditional / TD-style EM.



I quote from the BC page:

"Despite the enormous progress digital technologies have had during last decades, analog sounds, and all related machines like synthesizers and modular systems, still play an important rule in the contemporary experimental music. As matter of fact, recently the analog instruments are living a second youth, and many musicians are going deep into that kind of approach building analog machines by themselves too. Sometimes musicians think about more the analog medium technology and the sounds it can produce, than a specific music composition language. This is matter of discussion around the music world, and this survey tries to go deep into this discussion introducing to the music of many artists, well known or completely unknown, but all united by the same passion for analog sound.
All tracks are strictly realized by analog machines as sound source.
released September 3, 2016

ANALOG 2020 is dedicated to the memory of Vivas Leon Elias, a friend and a brilliant mind.

Infinite thanks to all artists involved into the compilation. And special thanks to Robert Rich, who very kindly has honored us with his participation.

EM News We just did a full circle. That is, I am happy to announce syndae's 360th edition, one show for every degree of the perfect two dimensional form. Now guess, where the word circus stems from? Right! And all this introduction leads us to the main topic of the show: the Electronic Circus. The festival is right ahead, one month to go, on October 1st. With quite some cool acts and of course all your musical friends are awaiting you. Some teasers, of course, you will find in tonight's edition, as there are Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Ulrich Schnauss, Metroland, BAR*, and Fryderyk Jona. Moreover, I will present fantastic music by Eckul (Codex Internnum), Digital People (Dead Orbit), and Noston (Midnight Radio Compilation 70).
