Last weekend we had the cheapest way of time travel over here: switching back from summer time to normal time. It's amazing that the people still do the one hour trip forward and backward each year, which at present times makes barely any sense. I am a fan of time travel in movies though, loving the idea and mind breaking thinking about what might happen when going forward or backward in time. From a rather mind buggling Time Machine by Wells to modern actioners and completely confusing movies like Tenet. There are many theories on why or why not time travel would work. And the common invite joke that time travelers will meet last year in June. One way to time travel is by celebrating modern sounds inspired by past masters in music. We will have some great stuff tonight celebrating that past great music style with tracks by dreamSTATE with Rob Hoare (21st Anniversary - Part 2), Wilfried Hanrath ft. Cousin Silas (The Emporium Artists Project Volume 18 Collab Special Part D), Syndromeda (Mythical Pursuit), Thaneco (Journey to Ithaca Vol.2), Michael Brückner (The Crossing of Zone 3), synkrotron & Cosmic Cadence (Ambient Online Compilation: Volume 14).
The sound that never ends on
This was quite an eventful week, dear friends in music. Quite a lot of heat on the job, which lead to lots of talking, and the same on private side, with planning and supporting. In other news, a new set of people were lifted to the Internation Space Station. Not just some rich dudes going up for taking selfies with earth, but real scientists doing several months of hard work and research in a not so earthly environment. Anyhow, this gives the perfect setting for some ambient sounds on the show, which I obviously have. And it's themed as well, fittingly to space and beyond. Enjoy wonderful tracks by Vangelis (Juno to Jupiter), Ambient Indigo, Cosmic Cadence, Big Beech, Tolubai, Ambient Light, Time Away (Alien Oceans), Synestia (Ambient Online Compilation: Volume 14), Joerg Dankert (Beyond), Steve Roach & Michael Stearns (Beyond Earth & Sky).
To soundly go, where no musician has gone before on
So this was a week with ups and downs, so I was undecided about what music to choose. Well, defintely more speed than last time, but not too fast and still relaxing. Isn't it strang how the way you feel sometimes reflects in the music? And sometimes it is the complete opposite? So maybe one is stressed, then listening to some ambient might help. Or rather some progressive sounds to match being agitated? Well, whatever style you choose, make sure it is great music by excellent musicians. Like the ones we have on the show tonight presenting to you such great tunes. Join me to listen to tracks by MikeKSmith (Twisty), Twofish (At least a hundred fingers), Wane of Summer (Alien Oceans), Roberto Sass (You Gotta Hold Me Tight), Serge Bardot (Cicada 17 Requiem: Brood X 4), Telefís (Mister Imperator), Carl Weingarten (A Fistful of Dust), Mars Lasar (Coastal Escape), Cousin Silas & Glove Of Bones (The Emporium Artists Project Volume 18 Collab Special Part D), Stan Dart (MurInsel Vol. 4).
Just the mix you need on
Well, the commercial break for the year has started. Black Friday. Cyber Week. Cyber Monday. Whatever they call it offering thousands of unnecessary products for allegedly the lowest prices. Are you in? Well, I can definitely withstand all this... oh, some cheap VST offerings, where is my mon... erm... Now, there are some offers one cannot resist, can you? What is it about this psychological thing that one buys stuff, if it seems cheap, which you otherwise would not think you need? Is it the hunter from stone age inside each of us? I don't know. But, please, if you find some name your price offerings, like you will hear on tonight's edition, think about whether you can afford to leave some coins. The artists will thank you with more great music. Like given to us by Roman Ridder (Ether), Colin Rayment (Evolving Forms), Dharvol (Through the Neverending Side of Silence), Broekhuis, Keller & Schönwälder (Raumzeit Festival Digital), Chuck van Zyl (21st Anniversary - Part 2), Bob Hedger.
Check these sounds, mate! On
