The Long Light - Hiraaeth
EM News Poster: the glimmer room - Date: Sun Apr 01, 2018 1:59 pm
Hiraeth is the second ambient album I have recorded under The Long Light name, though to be honest it is very almost a Glimmer Room album. This one moves a bit faster and has a few more layers than its predecessor Our Waking Hours, but still has enough space and the slow pace to still be considered a true ambient work.
Hiraeth is an old welsh saying that has no direct translation into English, but basically means ‘a longing for a home you can never return to, a home which may never had existed at all’. I only became aware of this saying halfway through the recording but for me at least it conjured up the same atmosphere I was hearing in the music, it felt right and was adopted as the works title.
This release is especially poignant for me as at this time in my life I am facing a very similar situation, a very long story. So I sincerely hope this recording finds a resonance with the listener.
It is also sadly impossible  for me to supply the CD/R versions of any of my albums for a short while, so they will just show up as sold out till I get myself truly back on track with life.

The stream/download is available at my Bandcamp page https://theglimmerroom.bandcamp.com/
 
Many thanks,
Andy

Kymatica is a journey back in time with one foot firmly in the future. To Berlin-based trio TaboTago, the years between Tangerine Dream‘s monolithic album »Zeit« in 1972 and the controversial fusion experiment »Cyclone« towards the end of the decade still provide plenty of inspiration. Over the course of many sessions and private concerts in a basement on Taborstraße they manage to crack the code which allowed Tangerine Dream to build epic and complex sound worlds using synthesizers and early electronic equipment. Starting out as a tribute band, it wasn‘t long before the band applyied their secret knowledge to the six pieces of original material on debut album »Kymatica«.

In the spirit of the originals from the 70s and performed on current digital gear as well as on analoge synthesizers, these up to 11-minute long tracks occasionally sound like undiscovered Froese recordings. Partly, this impression can be attributed to the fact that, similar to the techniques used by most krautrock bands at the time, all of the tracks were edited from live studio
sessions, using no overdubs and very little post production. The band regarded it vital to replicate the deep and warm sound of Tangerine Dream‘s 70s productions.

By incorporating these diverse influences into a ›Berlin School‹ production, »Kymatica« organically beams Tangerine Dream‘s spirit into the 21st century. – Tobias Fischer

syndae - episode 428
EM News Poster: treibklang - Date: Fri Mar 30, 2018 8:00 pm
Not everybody celebrates Easter, although it outgrew its religious meaning similar to christmas. The term Easter Egg got even more popular, not for the festivities but as a hidden feature in computer games, movies, and more. To me, electronic music and relatives are quite a collection of Easter Eggs within music in general. With only a few exceptions, most people rather listen to the ever repeating popular and furbished mirror-bright artists. Well, they miss out a lot, as to be heard on tonight's edition with extraordinarily fine tracks by Vangelis (Direct), Otarion (Under Surface), Ian Boddy & Erik Wøllo (Meridian), Dreams Beat (Dreams Beat), Eagle (The Last Kosmonaut), and Jarguna (Pareidolia).
