Reintroducing Sonic Immersion, re-designed & updated
Posted Mon Jan 21, 2019 4:20 pm by Bert
EM News Dear electronic music fellows,

Please accept the belated explanations for Sonic Immersion's lack of activity for a while.

Website design and hosting changes over the years made it more and more difficult to maintain the old site until it could do no more.
Just like a devious illness the slow crippling process made it easier to overlook its imminent demise.
With some most dedicated help from two friends a new website became viable which despite it’s visible simplicity the background coding did present enough challenges.
The key aspects were future proofing, simpler website navigation, simple but effective enhancements such as Searching options, Artist pages and most importantly retaining historical information.

…long story short, I'm happy to announce the wait is over by welcoming you back to the new website at www.sonicimmersion.org
I hope you enjoy the outcome bearing in mind ongoing enhancements and fixes as we come across them.
Exhaustive proof tests would take a long time so I invite you to report negative functionality issues or general feedback at info@sonicimmersion.org

Best regards,

Bert Strolenberg

(Theatrical, slightly sequenced, somber and melodious EM)
When we speak about timeless classic in EM, we have to slide this album at the top of the list. I was lucky to put my hand on it when it was released back in 1985. EM knew then a major bend. Its craftsmen tried to influence the kind towards a more accessible approach, abandoning the long pieces of music for more melodious structures with the use of the digital synths and\or a wide range of samplings. This period of transition left us all the same in inheritance some very good albums. “Let The Night Last Forever” from Walter Christian Rothe is one of them. Some people will say, and I am one of them, that this 2nd album of the Belgian musician is the precursor of this dark and poetic EM where reign a sordid atmosphere of horror. There were well some albums of Mark Shreeve, but none had this very theatrical touch, and nevertheless very melodic, but “Let The Night Last Forever”. This album of which the time has never succeed to buried in the oblivion (I transferred the album onto a mini--disc and then the mini--disc on CD-r) sees finally the day, thanks to the Groove NL label, in a beautiful reedition which includes 2 titles in bonus and a lot of infos.
Angels' horns announcing the end of time knock out our senses at the opening of "Intro + Dawnfall". On a fascinating aria of funeral procession, the solemn walking of “Let The Night Last Forever” overture hammers as much our curiosity as our interrogation. What kind of music is it? Lugubrious and nevertheless melodic, this introduction hears out these horns get out of breath while percussions, sequences and a pulsating line of bass establish a sl . . .

syndae - episode 463
Posted Fri Jan 18, 2019 8:00 pm by treibklang
EM News Something I really did not miss during vacation is the ride to and from work. It's nothing spectacular, really, but I am always amazed how people seem so in a hurry. Changing lanes like chords in a rock song, speeding and taking over to gain another four metres to the "combatant" drivers. Only to later meet up at the next traffic light. With all this hectic world outside, time and again it is nice to dive into something peaceful. Like the ambient tracks which are on tonight's playlist by Seifert & Steinbßchel (Abandoned Places), NoizeFilter (Absolute Zero), Erik Wøllo (Infinite Moments), DesuExSounds (Soundsphere 9 / Compilation), Adeptus Mechanicus (In an Open Field), and Kryshe (Hauch).

Take a deep breath with

Yours, Stefan

Robert Rich - Tactile Ground (2019)
Posted Fri Jan 18, 2019 6:11 pm by BruecknerAmbient
New releases Robert Rich released a brand new album the other day, in fact a two CD set, entitled "Tactile Ground".

I think it's marvellous, then again as a fanboy, I might be biased... Wink



These are the "liner notes" on BC - or maybe a liner poem, rather:

Can we find a tactile ground,
an animal surface upon which to calibrate our humanity?

Skin telegraphs sensation from air,
filtered from distant worlds.
Language constricts our sense of self
to an illusion of separation.
The verb of living, flux and transmutation,
expands outward from the middle,
concentric ripples on a pond.
We drop through the surface,
pebbles tossed from the shore.

A listener called Paul Seaman also wrote a short review, to which I actually tend to agree...

This album feels like the culmination of themes Rich has been exploring over the past decade, from the Eno-like sparseness of Nest to the latest scientific understandings about the universe; from his melancholy trilogy on humans' impact on nature to his recent contemplative, improvisational duets with Markus Reuter. In these gently hopeful tracks, there is both specificity and acceptance.

A live concert by J-MR in the youtube
Posted Mon Jan 14, 2019 1:58 pm by cyberiad2001
EM News Hi!

You should check this out. JuhaMatti Rautiainen Soundscapes did a small gig in his workplace a few days ago. The camera is static, but at least you get a good view of what he is doing. The only instrument is a bass guitar and loads of fx (also a couple of field recordings, looped). It's absolutely fantastic set of high quality ambient... Most of the material is from his latest album. A fantastic musician and really a true live concert with the help of technology. The sound is excellent...
