Ambient artist Jeff Kowal passed away
Posted Thu Apr 28, 2016 10:39 am by BruecknerAmbient
EM News I just learned via FB that American EM / ambient artist Jeff Kowal aka Terra Ambient died recently from pancreatic cancer, aged only 44.


I personally wasn't familiar with him or his music, so I'd like to quote two others who were...

"Jeff Kowal please tell us, where does someone go when they are no longer here? You were too young, it was too soon."

(Robert Rich)

"Remembering a friend with these lines from July, 2011. Jeff Kowal, March 9, 1972 - April 27, 2016. Rest In Peace!

Terra Ambient "Wanderlust" CD

Jeff Kowal aka Terra Ambient has released his 3rd album (2nd on Lotuspike) just before the summer of 2009, so quite a long time passed since 2004 when his previous applauded "The Gate" album was released. The album opens very quietly with "Myth", but this piece grows slowly into more dramatic and grandiose parts featuring harsh guitars. Quite a radical change when comparing to more peaceful soundscaping of "The Gate". But don't be scared, this fresh blend of deep atmospherics, tribal beats and expressive guitars is another step in Jeff's highly crafted and refined sound sculpting. His tribal ambience finely infused with right amount of roughness sounds absolutely exciting, a truly extraordinary listening experience from the very beginning of "Wanderlust"!!! "Mudfoot" is another standout piece carefully melting electronics with wide range of acoustics, highly turbulent composition, again enriched by treated guitars. What a beauty! Mysteriously deep atmospherics on "Visionquest" later transform into percussion-driven texture with crispy pulsing electronics, a really ear-catching cut! Organics open title track "Wanderlust", but soon this composition moves into absolutely exciting level where deeper washes and gentle tribal beats are spiced by expressive flutes, didgeridoos, bells and strange otherworldly sounds. Man, this must be one of the mo . . .

syndae - episode 342
Posted Fri Apr 22, 2016 9:59 pm by treibklang
EM News Time for some more out-of-the-box listening, although, I bet you will find very familiar features in tonight's edition. Recently, rock elements seem to find their way into the electronic music structures more often. Our playlist partly is giving credit to this direction, where there actually are rock bands on the show. Have a fun time with tracks by Vanderson (Vandisphere), Blue Man Group (Three), Hats Off Gentlemen it's Adequate (When the Kill Code Fails), Professureal Standing, Wave / Compilation), and Ron Boots (Ante Oculos).

Style boxing at:

Yours, Stefan

Concert News All friends of Pyramid Peak and Maxxess should not miss the opportunity to visit the first live concert of their new common project "PYRAMAXX" on Saturday, 14.05.2016 in Solingen / Germany!

Electronic Rock Music at its best, mixed with Berlin school type sequences and mysterious atmospheres - that's what you can expect from the 3 guys on that evening. PYRAMAXX will play songs from their latest album "Distance", which received excellent reviews as being one of the best electronic music CDs in 2015. Of course Max, Andreas and Axel are also going to present some new songs and other surprises Laughing

As a special guest the Indonesian artist Edy Rameyanto will make a live painting performance during the concert, inspired by the music of PYRAMAXX. This performance will be projected to the wall behind the musicians, so the audience can watch the progress of his paintings in real time!

There is only limited seating available, so be quick and reserve your ticket at: http://www.klangdesign-records.de/shop/index.php

The detailed address of the venue is:
Gueterhallen Solingen
Atelier PEST PROJEKT (Peter Amann)
Alexander-Coppel-Str. 28
42651 Solingen / Germany

The venue will open at 20:00 PM and the concert starts at 20:30 PM.

For more information including a little concert teaser please visit our website at www.pyramaxx.de

See you in Solingen!

TV interview with Peter Michael Hamel
Posted Tue Apr 19, 2016 1:11 pm by BruecknerAmbient
EM News Yesterday there was a 45 minute interview with / feature about German musician, composer and author Peter Michael Hamel (in German, obviously).

He's also improvising on piano a bit (and - especially given his age - quite impressively so...).

If anyone is interested, the show is still available in the mediathek of the Bayerischer Rundfunk:
