Arclight by ARC (DiNDDL17)
Posted Mon Jun 29, 2015 2:25 pm by ianboddy
New releases DiNDDL17
Arclight by ARC

Arclight once again sees DiN label boss Ian Boddy teaming up with Moogmeister Mark Shreeve as the duo ARC. Recorded live in concert at the Capstone Theatre, Liverpool on 15th November 2014, this is the sixth live album by ARC. The performance features four tracks from the duo’s previous live CD album Umbra (DiN45) alongside forty minutes of new material spread over the remaining three pieces. With almost 90 minutes of music the decision was taken to release this as a download only release on the DiNDDL sub label so as to preserve the entire performance. This follows on from a similar thought process inherent in the EC12 release (DiNDDL16) by Ian Boddy & Erik Wřllo which also features the whole of their Electronic Circus concert.

The music on Arclight features all the trademark ARC elements of thunderous sequencing, grand choral pads & ambient electronic textures. The title track is a tour de force of Moog sequencing ranging from infectious melodies & grooves to industrial mayhem & dynamic jumps. Filtered Through Haze is a far more laid back & ambient excursion with unusual sequencing patterns overlaid with a nebulous cloud of keyboard pads & Moog bass. The last of the new tracks, Into Dust, is a quirky rhythmic piece with glitchy drum loops & a sultry organ riff.

Once again ARC prove themselves to be masters of the electronic music genre and have produced a stunning live performance that the listener can experience in it’s entirety on Arclight.

RIP Chris Squire 1948 – 2015
Posted Sun Jun 28, 2015 9:22 pm by BruecknerAmbient
EM News Shocked and sad of more bad news... Sad

"Chris Squire, the co-founder and longtime bassist of prog rock icons Yes and the only member of the group to feature on every studio album, has passed away just over a month after revealing that he was suffering from a rare form of leukemia. Squire was 67."

Mike Hunter & Chuck van Zyl - Lancasphere 27 June 2015
Posted Sat Jun 27, 2015 7:21 am by chuckv
Concert News Dear Friends,

I hope it's OK to send you this note about a new concert series that's shaping up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA...

It's been named "Lancasphere" by founder Jason Mundok, and is set to present a concert of innovative music this weekend Saturday 27 June 2015 at 7PM. I know about this because I am playing this event with my friend Mike Hunter! This show will take place in an underground space called "Hunter's Tryst", which seems like a comfortable venue for this sort of music:


Our show at Lancasphere this weekend will wrap up our cycle of performances for the summer, so I thought that this event (and series) may be something readers of EM Portal will find interesting.

We released a live CD called "Space Patrol" (Synkronos Music) on 16 May 2015, and have been recently playing concerts in support of this release. Please access the link to view our fun "sci-fi" video featuring an excerpt from "Space Patrol":


Please see photos of Mike and I from our recent show at The Gatherings. As you will see, we do bring out quite a bit of electronic gear - so although our shows present passages of epic, cerebral electronic instrumental music, Mike and I do appear quite animated throughout each event. We are constantly handling, adjusting and even wrestling with our gear to produce this music live on stage (no computers or pre-recorded backing tracks):


Doing all these concerts over the past several weeks has been a really interesting and rewarding experience. Mike and I began our current endeavor in earnest on the 2 May 2015 broadcast of "Music with Space" on WPRB in Princeton, NJ. Mike has been hosting this program for the past several years, so it seemed natural for us to get the tour started over his airwaves.

We'd not do . . .

Blue Lily Commission, Drugged
Posted Thu Jun 25, 2015 5:07 pm by stevepalmer
EM News Quite a few years ago I was challenged by a fan to record an entirely acoustic album...

But that was in a galaxy far, far away. Drugged is the companion album to Undrugged - an album recorded entirely with acoustic instruments. It has nothing to do with drugs, I should point out: undrugged = unplugged. Drugged adds a host of synths and sounds to the mix, while reworking a couple of the earlier tracks.


Here's a preview track on Soundcloud:


… and here's a video on Youtube:


More info to follow...

Recent article about / interview with KS
Posted Thu Jun 25, 2015 11:41 am by BruecknerAmbient
EM News ...or wait - was it KDM, rather? Who knows? Rolling Eyes


it's from an Australian online magazine; not much new here for those who have already read some KS interviews (especially from the past, erm, 15 years...), but still I'm happy that his name still appears from time to time.
