I don't know if a topic like this already exists, but you can post here which album or artist you discovered recently.

I discovered Michael Hoenig yesterday, when I was searching for the soundtrack of the 'Revolution' rollercoaster in Bobbejaanland (Belgium). And I discovered that the sountrack was called 'Bones on the Beach' by Michael Hoenig.

I am glad you opened such a topic as I have a few things in the works, old stuff few may know about which don't really fit under new releases Laughing

Jon will be delighted with your Hoenig discovery but he probably knows it, shame that most of Hoenig's soundtrack music was not released.
But then again, it may well be something EM listeners wouldn't like, well done anyway.

So maybe we can post here archeological stuff or maybe there will be a suggestion for the right place.

The last good EM discovery I made was the Cosmic Ground album.

Ah Michael Hoenig, yes the "Departure" album is excellent. I myself was very pleased when I received "Electronic Sheep" from German artist Level Pi (Uwe Cremer) recently.

Nice album, not pure electronic, bit floyd influences but I liked it.
Full track on soundcloud

Laughing
I guess for released new stuff we got the New Releases section, others may go into the Now Playing section which seems the most popular.
I always check it out & bought a lot of music I never knew existed, and to help others I tend to add some short comment/opinion.

My latest discovery?

The earth is not flat.

Oh, you were talking about electronic music...

Well, let me think, wasn't it

Klaus Schulze, MIDI Classics (vinyl) ...?!? Twisted Evil

....ah, just kidding! Wink


I seem to get to hear a lot of good music each day, I think, and often I mention it hear.

However, there was one actually not exactly new album that I heard just a few weeks ago, for the very first time (...a shame, yes, but true!) and large parts of it just made my jaw drop (not all of it, it turned out, but the bigger part still, and it made my jaw drop really deep, and unexpectedly, too...).

Actually, I had thought of mentioning it here right away, but then was distracted and - anyway:

Rick Wright, Broken China

I bought Koto's "Masterpieces" lately, some very enjoyable tracks there. Also, Frankie Goes To Hollywood's "Liverpool" album was really good, and Steve Haun was a also a discovery, especially his "Midnight Echoes" album.

The 80s rule! Razz

I think this thread is perfect for EM related (re)discoveries of lost, forgotten, rare or to some, unknown releases & here is something different: sounds from the "silent" Universe humankind stared at for millennia Laughing

In 1977 NASA launched Voyager 1 then Voyager 2 in 1982 to explore the planets & Sun's magnetic/electromagnetic phenomena at the edge of our solar system.
The probes exceeded design expectations by completing the missions then simply waiting for the what next commands, since they were already out there NASA expanded the missions directing them into the "Magnificent Void".

Both probes carried LP format Gold discs with Sounds Of Earth, images and mankind data including a cartridge and instruction to play the discs for others out there who may come across them, like in the first Star Trek film.

The probes still work responding to commands & sending back data with the propulsion fuel & nuclear power sources (no sun out there 4 solar panels) are expected to fully deplete by 2025.

Equipped with electromagnetic sensors capable for on board real time (tape Exclamation Shocked ) recording they sent the data later & slower back to Earth.

Radio astronomy already revealed the Universe was not silent in the very high radio frequency spectrum but the (very) low frequency content not detectable from Earth was a surprise.
The captured radio signals in the 20Hz-20KHz range became audible once converted into acoustic energy, just like what our speakers do.

With hours of recordings, in 1989 NASA approached the New Age chiropractor & alternative healing Dr. Jeffrey Thompson to research the sounds with potential applications.

Dr. Thompson treated the raw audio with reverb/ loops similar to Eno's early techniques producing ~30 minutes dark/drone ambient tracks defying human critique, after all what would Jupiter, Uranus or Anyanus care what we think about it all Very Happy

With no info regarding the origin of particular sounds the initial 5 CD release was simply titled Symphonies Of The Planets 1-5 released as individual CD"s, then the box set below.

These CD's became popular with the New Age/Healing/Meditation wave selling out quickly & are difficult/expensive to get these days.

Image

Later on, Dr. Thompson obtained specific sounds origin info & expanded the recordings into a 12CDr set still available from the Center for Neuroacoustic Research as the "NASA Space Sounds&" devoting each disc to the original source:
Voice of Earth, Rings of Uranus, Saturn's Rings, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, Jupiter, Miranda, Sphere of IO, Space Sounds Music, & Song of Earth, then Best of type compilations like Space Sounds Music & the Celestial Love Songs.
The first 5 titles are the original Symphonies Of The Planets set & the rest new material.
The advertised CD"s (in the US any shiny disc is a CD Laughing ) are in fact poorly presented CDr's in a fat zippable CD-ROM holder with the discs in plastic sleeve dividers, there is no artwork or any info.

This is not something I listen to often but once a year in the dark I imagine these spy bugs traveling at an irrelevant speed of ~16kms/second into millions of light years of space sending back signals of creation.

The NASA Voyager sound recordings inspired others taking a different approach like the Italian astrophysicist Dr. Fiorella Terenzi on her 1991 CD Music From The Galaxies.
The album is varied from noise/industrial to New Age tracks with early Kraftwerk dr. Who style sound fx over the space background sounds/noise.

She also collaborated with LSD sepcialist (Dr. Shocked ) Timothy Leary, Thomas Dolby and gave some cheesy concerts to reach a wider audience, sorry old embed code unavailable, click the link:

But, it was Isao Tomita who probably succeeded the most using such sounds in a more musical way on the Dawn Chrous album:
