BrĂĽckner BC re-releases for September
EM News Poster: BruecknerAmbient - Date: Thu Sep 28, 2017 7:49 pm
The time is now at hand for the next batch of re-releases; this time it's three albums from 2003 which I always was fond of, and that form a sort of "mini series" - classic EM enthusiasts please be warned*: this is (mostly) NOT TD-like stuff, but rather experimental electronica (or: ambient), so Mouse On Mars or Aphex Twin (or also: Brian Eno) fans are more likely to appreciate it.

* but soon there's something else for TD fans, too Wink

Extended Liner Notes follow below, but here are the links first:





Ôrnithéologique (that's the ambient one!)



Irrghûn (that's the weirdest one Wink )


Liner Notes (in this case for all three of them):

The *mbp / sw line mini series* - general introduction:

I remember 2003 for being (arguably) the year of my creative peak as a sound artist (even if hardly anyone noticed at the time). I felt that my formative years lay finally behind me and at long last I had found my own voice. I was full of confidence, and I still consider six of the ten albums I recorded in that year as highlights among my own work (the remaining four being kind of OK, too).

At this time, it also would not come to my mind to produce any kind of „retro electronica“. I loved and adored the masters from the 70s for sure, but I believed still that it was my duty to be a „contemporary artist“ (both words being relevant to me, contemporary AND artist).

Contemporary meant that my major role models rather were acts like Mouse On Mars, Aphex Twin or Nils Petter Molvaer (for example) back then, and not so much Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream or J.M. Jarre.

Being an artist meant to me *not* to be „commer... (Read More)

RIP Mark Ward
EM News Poster: BruecknerAmbient - Date: Mon Sep 25, 2017 12:14 pm
This morning I was shocked to find the terrible news that British ambient / electronica artist Mark Ward has passed away recently. Crying or Very sad

He was a gifted electronic musician and also a long-time online friend.

Just listening to his latest release, which is very beautiful...

Made an interesting find in my loft yesterday in a dusty box of cassettes long forgotten..... INKEYS No6 on cassette from 1983... Shocked

I've a vague memory of buying this very cheaply (50 pence if I recall) from a second music store maybe some 16 years ago....
...listening to it perhaps once (I'm not even certain if I did listen to it), and then it found it's way into the loft to be long forgotten....

Looking at the track listing is interesting....

Side A
Richard Pinhas - Iceland
Bernard Xolotl - Procession
Steve Jolliffe - Journeys Out of The Body
Didier Bocquet - Pictures of Life
Tim Story - In Another Country
Peter Frohmader - Necropolis II
Eddy Sayer - Music for People

Side B
Tangerine Dream - Hyperborea
Michel Huygen - Capturing Holograms
M.A.L - Two Faces
Danner & Clement - A Gradual Awakening
Crystal - Rainbow Voyager
Fondation - La Vaisseau Blanc
Mainframe - Tenants of the Lattice Work

Given this thing's now 34 years old I'm not sure if it even plays anymore?

Does anyone collect these or know anything about them?

There appears to be very little on the internet about them...

All I can remember it is that it was one of a series,
a sort of promotion/review compilation of forthcoming new albums of the day.... IMHO interesting none the less.... Wink

Luckily I've still got the means (a tape deck) to play it on, so it might be worth checking out.... that's assuming it still plays ? Laughing

Alpha Wave Movement - Echoes In The Vacuum CD/Digital
New releases Poster: betawave - Date: Mon Sep 25, 2017 7:18 am

The latest release by Alpha Wave Movement is now available on cd and for digital download.

Intermixing the nostalgic warm lush classic synthesizer sound of yesteryear with modern cpu driven digitalism. Emphasizing ethereal swirling sequencers and cyclic percussion driven emanations.

Set your ears for a voyage into the heart of the audio threshold where silence and pulse become one......

Please visit Harmonic Resonance Recordings to sample the new album:

rmi - 'Lost in Transit' series now on Bandcamp
EM News Poster: Daniel - Date: Sun Sep 24, 2017 12:03 pm
Weirdest co-incidence: driving home on Friday night with some old rmi on the car audio, thinking "it's been a while since I have bought any new rmi releases - I wonder if the 'Lost in Transit' series will make it onto Bandcamp?"

...and when I get in there are emails from Bandcamp announcing the release of the whole series! Shocked
