syndae - episode 402

Postby treibklang » Fri Sep 08, 2017 7:00 pm

There are these cooking shows on TV, where they cook big but serve small. Whenever I see these tiny spoons with full featured dishes, I think it is amazing. And while they seem soo tiny, I am quite sure they are of high quality and represent fine art. One might say a music podcast is similar to such shows, presenting only tiny bits of musical works which nevertheless are very delicious in sound and making. This is definitely true for tonight's show, although I define about 5 minutes as tiny. So I hope you will enjoy these fine tracks as much as I did. Well, actually I enjoyed the whole albums, but my show only has 30 minutes, so I need to pick some raisins. And these fine audio cooks I have for you: Yves Potin (Forest Stairways), No Landscape Survives (Quantums of Inconsistency), Sverre Knut Johansen (Secret Space Program), Ender (Fierce Equanimity), Light Pillar (Phantasmagoria), and Matti T (Past & Future).

syndae - episode 403

Postby treibklang » Fri Sep 15, 2017 7:00 pm

Boy, this week definitely has earned me some off-time. And here I go with some music to reset my brain. It's not at all feature-less music, though. But it should trigger the right neurons to depart from this world and leave all the heat behind. Join me, if you like, take a seat and detach yourself from being busy. Nothing else to say at this point, simply dive into the tracks by Howard Givens & Craig Padilla (Being of Light), Jim Ottaway (Deep Space Blue), Aliensporebomb (Totality: Eclipse Music), Daniel Barbiero & Cristiano Bocci (Non-Places), and Volei (Wander in the Warm).

syndae - episode 404

Postby treibklang » Fri Sep 22, 2017 7:00 pm

Well, I was tempted to make this episode a web like 404, not found. But, hey, what would be the point? This way it got far better in that I have a real listening treat in four parts, which are really four short stories in traditional electronic music. Back to syndae's root, home of sequences and long running tracks. Exactly the kind of music one needs for a relaxing longer journey, if you are no speedster. I am not, and listening to this music, I can see the world passing by just fine when riding along. Ok, now have fun with the latest edition featuring tracks by ['ramp] (Synchronize Or Die), DASK (Messages), Sequentia Legenda (Ethereal), and Akikaze (Solstice).

The finest road trip on

syndae - episode 405

Postby treibklang » Fri Oct 20, 2017 7:00 pm

Back from a short vacation, and I'm ready to feed you with some wonderful melodic treats. I stayed at a nice place in midth of an amazing green valley in between smaller mountains, which is also known for witch crafting. Quite fitting to upcoming Halloween. Well, it was the right place to slow down, take a look outside one's daily world and enjoy nature. Being refuled with green energy, but still having my mind being cought in a beautiful region, tonight's music totally reflects my state. Have a joyful time with tracks by Darshan Ambient (Lingering Day: Anatomy of a Daydream), Erik Wøllo (Cinematic), Remy (The Return of Planet X), NoizeFilter Music (Ambient Road), and Michael Brückner (Trees of Olivandá).

syndae - episode 406

Postby treibklang » Fri Oct 27, 2017 7:00 pm

Recently I read about that music is what we use to decorate time, in contrast to art being used to decorate space. There is a similar quote by Frank Zappa about the music part. I could not find out about the full quote's origin, though, but it seems quite logical to me. Art and music also please two different senses, and I can surely enjoy both at the same time. Some years back there was a school project to transform one into the other; they let music inspire painting images and vice versa. Obviously, it is common to combine music with videos, even on live music events. The fun part is, when listening to music without any visual stimulus, the sounds and flow still create images in my head. What about you? Any such experience? Well, you can definitely find out by listening to the tracks on tonight's show by weldroid (Splines 2017), Microscopists (Ghost Payload), GreatOwl (Ikilixi), Crash Dump File (The Crash Dump Files 2006 - 2007), Frallar (Oir cosas nunca vistas), IcingWolf (Vive Somnium).

syndae - episode 407

Postby treibklang » Fri Nov 03, 2017 8:00 pm

Sometimes it is time to move on. For several years now I hosted my websites on a dedicated server, always needing a knowing and helping hand of some friends to keep it up and running. (Thanks, btw., I owe you plenty.) But as time moves on so does technology. Everything is in the cloud nowadays, and so is the new home of syndae. Some nice UI for managing and updating all the applications, less low level operations. And while I am entering technical heaven, you can still enjoy the music of this episode, which may also take you to the musical heaven of electronic sounds. Have a delightful listening to tracks by Bridge to Imla, Remy (The Return of Planet X), Wolfgang Nachahmer (Hexenkessel), Jeffrey Koepper (Transmitter), Johan Tronestam (Luther), and Cosmic Hoffmann (Best Of).

syndae - episode 408

Postby treibklang » 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).

syndae - episode 409

Postby treibklang » Fri Nov 17, 2017 8:00 pm

Lucky be you living on the southern hemisphere theses days, as it's bright all day long and everything is so green and shiny. Over here, late autumn, barely any leafs on the trees, dark and cold outside, where is the fun? Well, I can tell ya, in here it is. Colourful and in plenty variations. Brand new material to listen to as well as a cool track from earlier this century. To me it spend a lot of happiness and made me forget the bad weather. So I hope you will enjoy the music as much as I, tonight presenting tracks by Stefan Erbe (Genesys), Eat Static (Last Ship to Paradise), Push Against New Fakes (Be Kind), MacroNoise (My Steps Lead Backwards), Seifert & Steinbüchel (Intellectual Property - Counterfeit Remixes Part 1), Ian Boddy & Bernhard Wöstheinrich (Moiré).

syndae - episode 410

Postby treibklang » Fri Nov 24, 2017 7:59 pm

Artificial intelligence has been the talk of the town lately. When I left university, I actually started working in the field of AI and it was quite as big a topic back then as it is today. Well, the focus has shifted a bit. Back then it was a technology high, nowadays it is rather marketing driven for having intelligent systems to raise more attention and adopt to customers to sell more goods. Well, what about AI in art? Will computers one day start creating music, optimized for profit? Or is it possible that even AI created music might become art? We may still live to experience the advances in artificial intelligence and whether it will only be applied for business. Computers might become creative, although we humans most likely will not recognize or understand it. But for now, we still have beautiful human minds out there creating fascinating and delightful soundscapes, like the tracks on this edition painted by Aleks Michalski (All These Little Elements), David Helpling (The Sleeping Sessions), Colin Rayment (Architects Of Orion), Robert Logan (Sculptor Galaxy), Ivan Black (We are Such Stuff as Dreams are Made On), and Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate (Broken but Still Standing).

syndae - episode 411

Postby treibklang » Fri Dec 01, 2017 8:00 pm

Finally, these black Fridays and cyberish Mondays are over. But wait, not quite, there are some shops still having a "cyber week" running. And, of course, not long before all the Christmas sales go online. Oh, boy! Are you in for these shopping marathons? The more I scan such shops, the fewer stuff I find that I really need. It seems just to be this "oh, hey, that's a good price" thing. So I usually don't join the ralley and stick to what is actually on my wanted list. Too bad, though, that some of these shops deal with electronic music, which makes it very hard to resist. Very ... well, I have to go, ho ho. But not before I let you know about tonight's show, which features tracks by Sensory++ (Art of Sadness), Sequential Dreams (Metmorphic Waves), ARC (Index05 / Sampler), DASK (Insecta Extended), Bouvetøya (Machines for Collective Living).

syndae - episode 412

Postby treibklang » Fri Dec 08, 2017 8:00 pm

While the world is still getting more and more grey, I have to admit that at the moment I prefer colourful sceneries. Not only in imagery but also in music. I guess, I am not alone and it is also one of the reasons for having all these festivities at the end of the year. And while it seems intreaguing to celebrate christmas time in a swimsuite, I prefer the northern hemisphere style of the seasons. Nevertheless, also quieter music somethimes gives me a good time, for tonight we have such material, not quite ambient, but close. Have a joyful session on syndae with tracks by Synesthesounds (Studio 4632 2017 Ambient Sampler), Cousin Silas & Kevin Lyons (Beyond the Infinite), Steen Chorchendorff Jorgensen (Out of Thin Air), Synthstudiodevries.com (Constellation Orion), Fabio Anile (Dense).

syndae - episode 413

Postby treibklang » Fri Dec 15, 2017 8:00 pm

It's crazy how many people are on the road these days. And I wonder whether they all are driving home for christmas. On the contrary, perhaps, they are on their way to the shopping malls and city centers to hunt for presents. Which seems a common fun scene in American films, where a raging crowd storms a shop to fight for the last action figure or rag doll. Maybe our fellow listeners from the US can tell, if this is true or just made up. On syndae, there is no limit on downloads for each show, so no need to run over each other. And it is very easy to get hold of your personal copy of the podcast, to listen to wherever and whenever you want. Nevertheless, the music to be heard is at least as valuable as a rag doll, so simply join me and listen to tracks by Cosmic Trigger (The Hallucinatory Mountain), Yomgaille (Repetition and Motion), Infinite Third (Channel(s)), Rudolf Heimann (Tiefenrausch), LooneyJetman (The Lonely Sky), MTA Lab (In Luv).

syndae - episode 414

Postby treibklang » Fri Dec 22, 2017 8:00 pm

So we just put up a tree in the living room, which will be decorated for christmas eve and remain there for several days. Is this a silly tradition? Well, my wife loves having this colourful tree and who am I to disagree (better to not start fighting with your life companion, especially on Christmas)? Ok, so I checked for what happens to the trees after they leave the home after the festivities. Luckily, they get collected by city services and will be returned to the natural cycle. Overall, it seems not too bad, no nature disaster. Surely not ideal, but acceptable. And I must admit, it does look quite nice to have some colour and light and green in the room. To accompany the scenery, I have some fitting music on this edition. No Christmas music, beware, I've been wham'd countless times this month. But great electronic tracks by Steve Roach (Spiral Revelation), Erik Wøllo & Bernhard Wöstheinrich (iNDEX05 / Sampler), Stefan Erbe (Genesys), Kellerkind Berlin ft. Martin Neuhold (Colorful Thoughts), Oesterhansen (Trip to Proxima B / Compilation), J. Arif Verner (From a Distant Horizon).

syndae - episode 415

Postby treibklang » Fri Dec 29, 2017 8:00 pm

So this is it. The end. The final show for 2017, two days before we are done with the year. It saw 44 episodes of syndae, well received by you my dear friends. And I am grateful you listened in to it. So much great music this year. Hence, a big thank you goes to all the artists out there producing all this cool music. More thank yous go out to all the labels and musicians supporting my show by submitting their music. I couldn't do what I do without you. And ... well, this should not become a thank you letter. Of course, big, big thanks to my wife for being so patient with me when spending so much time listening to music and visiting events. So, this will be my goodbye for 2017. I felt it needs a bit of party-worth tracks, and those I got. Hope you will have me again in 2018. And for tonight, enjoy the music by Step High (Celestial Colors), Essence Project (Chapter 1), Le Peuple de L'Herb (Music to get High to / by Youth), Tron Sepia (The Theoretiker), Rudolf Heimann (Tiefenrausch), Kinza (Sei shin Byoin).

The final party on

syndae - episode 416

Postby treibklang » Fri Jan 05, 2018 8:01 pm

Are you having any resolutions for 2018? A kind of silly tradition where one resolves to changes and break them rather sooner than late. Always! Okay, maybe not. I don't do resolutions anymore, but maybe they help some of you. So the holidays have passed, a new year is born, except for some Asian countries celebrating on the new moon of the first lunar month. No fix date here. I always wondered what the point of celebration would be, as it really only is about incrementing a counter. Well, maybe it's because the earth's trip is back to the start, having a great journey on the circular road around the sun. However, life is always better with some great music. Hop in to syndae and listen to the fine tracks by Wonderfeel (Lao Dreaming), Cosmic Trigger (The Hallucinatory Mountain), Jazzyspoon (Achluophobia / Compilation), Chuzausen (Attempt to Communication), Meta Meat (Rien Ni Personne Vol. II & III / Compilation), Aevin (Snowflakes VIII / Compilation).


Follow the path to happiness on
