P'Faun "The Golden Peacock" soon on Groove Unlimit
EM News Poster: BruecknerAmbient - Date: Wed Oct 10, 2018 7:09 pm
I'm happy to announce that P'Faun's first full album


will be available soon (most likely "in sync" with the E-Live festival in two weeks) as (real!) CD on Ron Boot's label Groove Unlimited.

The album has been in the works (off and on) for more than five years and includes studio versions of most of the songs played in two concerts in 2013 by "Betzler & Brückner" (the earlier version of the band) - plus some more...

The style is (obviously) close to P'Faun's debut EP "Sp'Roque" (and earlier Betzler & Brückner albums) - which means an electronic variety of space rock (or a rocking variety of electronic space... Wink ).

A teaser with some excerpts will be shared soon via YouTube and / or Soundcloud (we're working on that...).

Of course, You can also come and see the band at E-Live, where we're going to play quite a few tracks from the album...

P'Faun is:

Tommy Betzler: electronic & acoustic drums, percussion & gongs

Sammy David: electric and acoustic guitars, bass guitar

Michael Brückner: synthesizer, keyboards, electronics, processed voice

...together with five wonderful musical guests - mentioned in the track list below:

1. So Ham (A Suite) (14;49 min)
...featuring Cilia di Ponte (voice) and Doris Hach (cello)

2. Flying Fish (7:00 min)

3. King Gong (9:15)
...featuring Gerd Weyhing (guitar, looped guitar, bass)

4. House In The Storm - Part 2 (by P'Cock) (10:5Cool

5. Number Five (Is Still Alive) (7:18 min)
...featuring Harald Nies (guitar)

6. P'Quences (14:38 min)
...featuring Rene van der Wouden (synths, keyboards)

7. Blue Pearls - Part 1 (7:23 min)
8. Blue Pearls - Part 2 (7:04 min)

The album was mixed and produced by Michael Brückner & Sammy David and mastered by Hans-Dieter Schmidt.

I'd also like to mention that the wonderful cover painting is by the Brazilian painter and illustrator Luciana Lupe Vasconcelos, who's other... (Read More)

Stephanie Sante - Clear Light
New releases Poster: Marie - Date: Tue Oct 09, 2018 11:28 pm


Stephanie Sante is a synthesizer master, and although she occasionally uses her synth to re-create a regular acoustic instrument, she mostly just refreshingly lets her synthesizer sound like a synthesizer as you will hear if you take a listen to her new CLEAR LIGHT album. This is amazing new age and ambient electronica -- simple one moment and complex the next, bouncy and rhythmic one moment (Deep Impression,” “Jade Resonance” and “Fractured Echoes”) and dreamily floating the next (“Melt Like Snow” and “The Color of Coral”), moving from vibrant to spacey and back again. These are underwater dreamscapes and mesmerizing ambient oceanic journeys that will have you aching to scuba-dive on your next vacation. You owe it to yourself to deeply explore this fascinating new release.

B-Wave Festival: get your tickets or it will be cancelled!
Concert News Poster: B-Wave - Date: Tue Oct 02, 2018 6:23 am
For the moment tickets sales are too low.
So, if you are intended to come to the festival : get your tickets now! Don't wait until next month or so!
We will decide on October 14th (that's already in 12 days!) if the festival takes place or not.
I am dead serious. I also will question the further existence of B-Wave as well. Most likely it will cease to exist.
If you have such a great line-up but tickets sales says people aren't interested, then this it for me. Really.
Why do we have to make a decision now? Well, within two weeks we have the first big chunk of money to pay. As a matter of fact there already were costs involved. Even with the financial support of Flanders this year, we won't make it! Read about my earlier post about the fact that B-Wave is a small non-profit organisation, not a million € company which has its tangles deep in the media as well.

For the ones who already bought their tickets: THANKS for your support and don't worry, I will refund everyone. I will get in touch with you if the festival won't take place !
