syndae - episode 299
Posted Fri Apr 24, 2015 10:00 pm by treibklang
EM News Listening closely to a shell lets one hear the murmur of the sea. Well, not really, but it quite sounds like it. In truth, the sound you hear is the natural frequency of the shell's air column. Ok, this is far too technical for the beautiful noise it provides. All I'm saying is that tonight's edition of syndae is like a shell. Take a close listen, as it carries half a dozen of real beauties in style and sound. Not the most serene this time, with tracks by Erik Wøllo (Blue Radiance), Reskimus (MRC Beautiful Julia Edition 2015), The Hermit (Liber 3 - Dualism), Johan Tronestam (Roswell), and finally Martha Rabbit (Zodiaklicht). Open up.

Beauty in noise at:

Yours, Stefan

Which Packaging Format? Jewel Case? Digipack? Eco-Wallet?
Posted Fri Apr 24, 2015 6:42 am by hhh
EM News I had a customer tonight write to tell my they REALLY don't like the eco-wallet packaging format. This was my response to him...

My primary reason for choosing the Eco-Wallet packaging format is to reduce the amount of plastic used. Second, the format gives me plenty of visual real estate to share my artwork. Third, they're a lot cheaper than digipacks. Fourth, they take up a fraction of the space of a jewel case. If I had to inventory the same number of CDs I currently have, it would take up about 2.5 times the space currently taken and I can barely afford that space. It was a compromise that I needed to make logistically, not just environmentally.

While I absolutely appreciate your feedback (I do make decisions based on my listeners' wants and needs!), the vast majority of comments on this format have been quite positive. You're actually the first to complain, but I certainly can appreciate your comment. It is definitely flimsier and, without a jewel case, the case tends to wear and become scuffed over time. Also, if you sit a drink on one, they're toast. The Eco-Wallet is not the perfect solution by any stretch, but it is certainly environmentally friendlier.

No one will agree with you more than me that the packaging is just as important as the music. First impressions and presentation are vital to my image and I've gone out of my way to produce an artistic work of art, as well as a musical one.

This doesn't mean that I won't explore alternatives in the future for my packaging, but right now, it works well for my intent and most of my listeners love them. I'm really sorry you're not pleased with this format, but that is the current reality. If this is a deal-breaker for future purchases, I want to know about it.

Thanks for your candor,


This has prompted me to . . .

THIS MUSIC PLANTS TREES - Massive V/A Compilation
Posted Wed Apr 22, 2015 4:43 pm by BruecknerAmbient


Here's another compilation from Jack Hertz' Sound4Good label, as always dedicated to a good cause - I quote:

"Sound For Good Records began on Earth Day, March 22nd, 2012. As with most years, we will be marking our anniversary with another release to celebrate the Mother Earth on Earth Day April 22nd, 2015.

This year, we are honored to present an massive community effort focused on using power of music to plant trees through the Trees for the Future project.
"This Music Plants Trees" brings together artists from around the world in a collection of over 150 tracks. Discover a universe of music to share and help build awareness about Trees. They cool the planet, retain water, are home to the wild, and clean the air we breathe.

Every dollar raised 10 trees. Your modest donation just $5 or $10 (or more) can make a big difference by planting 50-100s trees! Please give any amount now and get this great collection of music for your kind support of the Mother Earth."

BRÜCKNER & BRÜSSEL - Public Rehearsal May 16th 2015
Posted Sat Apr 18, 2015 12:02 am by BruecknerAmbient
Concert News I'd like to announce this very small - but still basically "public" event - also here, not in the hope to attract a big audience, but rather for the odd fan or listener who's adventurous enough and doesn't mind a longer drive to join this "family gathering"... Wink

On Saturday, the 16th of May, at around 7 pm, Mathias Brüssel and I will hold a "public rehearsal". To this end we have rented a small hall near Mainz (the city where we live, near Frankfurt) and play for a small audience - a "slightly bigger living room concert". The event is also meant as a chance for some of our German listeners who can't make it to our regular concert about two weeks later.

So we will (indeed!) rehearse our current set, then there will be a break where we can all eat, drink and chat a while, and after that Mathias and me will go on playing as long as people will enjoy to listen...

Admission will be FREE, but it is necessary to register in advance, because the room is limited (50 seats in all).

In the * admittedly unlikely * case you want to join us, please contact me directly and we will sort out the procedure. Of course, we would be delighted!!!

Since I had experienced troubles with the internal mail system of the EMPortal in the past, please send me a message either

- via https://www.facebook.com/bruecknerAmbient (prefered)

or in case that's not possible via


(...which is a mailbox I check usually only once or twice per month, though).

There is, btw. a second recording of an earlier rehearsal session online by now (already slightly different from the first one), so if You want to get an idea, You can check here - then again, the set will still evolve during the next few weeks...
