syndae - episode 408
EM News Poster: treibklang - Date: Fri Nov 10, 2017 8:06 pm
On a long ride, when I'm not responsible for driving, taking in the outside view often is quite interesting. I'm not a regular train passenger, so the scenery is not a daily repeat to me. On the other hand, I am easily disturbed by the noise of others, so enjoying the view is not that easy. Well, it is putting on my headphones with cool music. Best to put on some ambient style sounds, so the music itself does not distract from the view either. Also, the music should not be too quiet so I don't fall asleep. Yeah, sounds like a lot of constraints for picking the right noise for my ears, but it exists. And tonight's show is full of such music, with tracks by Frore & Shane Morris (Eclipse), Abyssal Plains (Fourth Quadrant of the Mandala), Nulix (Oir cosas nunca visitas), Hanetration (Ancients EP), Oranjada vs. North Beach Crew (Music for Elevators Vol. 5 Part 2), and Selffish (Let's Go Outside).

Introducing the definitive version of Winter Embrace by Altus (Mike Carss), a Canadian musician with 40+ releases over the course of his career. For the first time, Altus is available on pressed CD. The album was originally released in 2002, and then rebuilt from the ground up in 2017. This is a long-play album that begins in a slow-motion neoclassical minimalist structure, transforming into an ambient bed of sound over the course of 62 minutes. The music was created to accompany the sights and sounds of the first snowfall of the winter season.

New video by DEEP IMAGINATION

"Before Thousand Of Years" by DEEP IMAGINATION

The new video "Before Thousand Of Years" by DEEP IMAGINATION is out now. It is another mysterious video to a piece from the album "Carefully Kept Secrets". A floydian melange between styles like Artrock and Elektronik. The title "Before Thousand of Years" stands here as a metaphor for the archaic and mysterious.

Press comment: "...Deep Imagination also features an ambient-like electronic music, which serves as a subtle accompaniment for the female vocals, the voices and the guitar contributions. Sometimes piano sounds appear, as in "Before Thousand of Years". The piece is a good example of how the concept of Deep Imagination comes up. It is the concept of playing music between Artrock and Ambient." (Siggy Zielinski, babyblaue-seiten.de)

Some Blue Lily Commission albums arrived this year at Bandcamp:

Four Directions is ambient world music with lots of synths and electronics...

https://bluelilycommission.bandcamp.com/album/altaidubs

Altaidubs is dub ethnicity with its synthi-heart in Central Asia...

https://bluelilycommission.bandcamp.com/album/via-lhasa

Via Lhasa was originally released as an S.P. work in 2012, but almost nobody noticed. So here it is again, remixed and remastered, as a BLC release...

https://bluelilycommission.bandcamp.com/album/eastern-morning

A remix album of Eastern Evening. This was meant to be one track, but the project got out of hand over the summer... My friends on this forum will know what that experience is like! Very Happy

Sun Trance by Markus Reuter - video + BC album
EM News Poster: BruecknerAmbient - Date: Mon Oct 23, 2017 6:36 pm

Some months earlier this year I had the pleasure to attend the world premiere of a composition by Markus Reuter by the avantgarde percussion ensemble "Mannheimer Schlagwerk" and Markus himself (plus some further guest musicians).

It was a great experience! Shocked

Today Markus shared a live video of that event (via YouTube) and also the audio recording (via Bandcamp).

While not exactly electronic music (even if one of the musicians used a synthesizer, it was rather acoustic minimal music + touch guitar) I think some of You might take interest, and actually enjoy this...
