new release


Brückner CD "Ombra" now available (+ reviewed)
Posted Mon Jul 28, 2014 12:12 am by BruecknerAmbient
EM News https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8663596/Produktphoto.jpg

As announced a few weeks ago, my new old album "Ombra" is available since yesterday night from Hagen von Bergen's label BI-ZA Records, as a limited edition of 100 industrially pressed (that's: real!) CDs.

So, "ladies and gentlemen - and others..." (that's a Jon Lord quote):

You can place Your orders now - especially those of You who keep demanding Your music on good old compact disc...


But seriously now (really...):

If You actually consider to do purchase this album, please (PLEASE !!!! ) do these three things FIRST! :

1. Listen to the available excerpts / demos from the album to make sure that You're really going to like it. You will find some below, and there's also an extended introduction video in the making that will be on YouTube tomorrow or Tuesday. Of course I won't deprive this forum of it...


2. There are two different versions of this release; please read the info about the contents of the different versions to know what You will get FIRST (...and then pick the larger, more expensive one!)

Twisted Evil

3. For several practical and good reasons we decided to use my Bandcamp presence as a kind of "exteneded webshop" for BI-ZA Records; the label, of course, has it's own webshop, and You also can order the album from there, but handling will be much (MUCH!!!) easier for us if You place Your order via bandcamp - thanks a lot in advance.

Here's the albums Bandcamp link:


...and here's the BI-ZA homepage (that has received a new face on this occasion, btw...)



So, first an overview of the two versions of this edition, we call it "standard" and "special"...

A. The Standard version contains:

1. Ombra - Revisited, industrially pressed CD in standard jewel case with full artwork

Schallwelle website back online
Posted Sun Jul 27, 2014 8:52 pm by treibklang
EM News Some of you might already have noticed that the Schallwelle website ist back online. A new feature, which might be of interest to fans and artists as well: a form to suggest artists and albums for the next award nominations. So, if you want to be sure your favorites get considered, simply fill out the form with plenty of details on their 2014 actions.
Of course, you will also find past winners and event photos on site. And here you go (check the International section, if German reads gibberish to you):


Thanks for taking your time reading this Smile

Concert News Yellow Circle Orchestra

Binnert Blom & Bas Broekhuis

Wat begint als een klank experiment, groeit uit tot een muzikale vriendschap waarbij de contrasten van klanken elkaar weten te versterken. De indringende tonen van klankschalen en digiridoo smelten schijnbaar moeiteloos samen met de elektronische geluidssyntheses. Dit alles weten de heren tot een geheel te smeden in een aantal eigen composities waar rust, ritme en ruimte samenkomen in een stijl die zich het best laat omschrijven van “meditatieve wereld muziek” tot “ambient”.

De watertoren van Stadskanaal, waar tegelijkertijd de tentoonstelling
“Witte Olifanten” van Chris Baaten te zien is, biedt een unieke akoestiek
waar deze klankstructuren nog eens extra tot hun recht komen in een drietal concerten. Beleef deze unieke ervaring.

Datum: Zondag 17 augustus
Aanvang: 14:00, 16:30 & 20:00 uur
Kaarten: à € 8,- reserveren via
Adres: Watertoren Stadskanaal, Ceresstraat 2, 9502 EA Stadskanaal
Web: www.witteolifantenstadskanaal.nl

Binnert Blom
Binnert studeerde klassieke gitaar en elektronische muziek aan het muzieklyceum te Hilversum. Na zijn studie bouwde hij een carrière op als professioneel geluidsman en werkte mee aan shows van vele bekende artiesten. Tijdens zijn reizen kwam hij in aanraking met klankschalen en met de digiridoo. Beide instrumenten leerde hij tot in de finesses te bespelen en voor meditatie sessies in te zetten.
- Klankschalen
- Digiridoo
- Compositie
- Geluidstechniek

Bas Broekhuis
In diversen (inter)nationale formaties speelde Bas al ruim 150 concerten in Europa en de USA. Beïnvloed door Klaus Schulze en Tangerin Dream heeft Bas inmiddels een eigen stijl ontwikkeld die zich bevind tussen de traditionele “Berliner Schule” stijl van elektronische muziek en de moderne Trance muziek. Als componist, uitvoerend muzikant en geluidstechnicus, maakt hij voor zijn composities gebruik van een groot assortiment aan synthesizers, drumcomputers en effect apparaten.

New Ambient release from Paul Ellis "Breathing Space&am
Posted Sun Jul 27, 2014 6:32 pm by Paul Ellis
New releases Image

This is a minimalist album created in two slowly morphing parts. A
companion piece to "Wrapped In Silence".
It makes an atmosphere that breathes in and out filling the room with a
slowly drifting mood creating a quiet
organic and reflective space.

syndae - episode 263
Posted Fri Jul 25, 2014 10:00 pm by treibklang
EM News Thankfully, the short heat wave is over for now and not only I but also my computer has no need for heavy breathing anymore. So what is best than having some music going easy on one's mind? Well, this show has the right music for this mood. And it lifts off with Kikai's contribution to the sampler Sehnsucht. We the experience Forever Changes, the new album by Claudio Merlini. Which is followed by Erik Wøllo's new EP Tundra. A look back to the 90s is brought to us by Wayne Gratz and his Blue Ridge. Then having again brand new stuff, which is Compuctio by Johan Tronestam. And also the closer is newer than new, with the upcoming album Herrscher im Orbit by ebia.

Winding down with: http://www.syndae.de/episodes/617-episode-263

Yours, Stefan
