Hanging asound

It's one of the last warmer and sunny days over here at my place, and thus will be the music of tonight's edition: relaxed and chilling. So I hope you will find some time to lay back and have a joyful moment listening to these fine tracks. Best to visit a peaceul and nice place in your mind palace, sit down and let your soul hang around following the slower and faster beats of the show, while listening to tracks by Vaporgrave (Split 2), Julian Ray (Space Wanderer), The Pels Syndicate (Life Cycle), Stan Dart (Hometown Menories), Kuba (Society of Inner Light), Three Fields (Island Mixes), Who Ha (Retro Promenade 09.16), Max Jahn (Skyrunner), Heavenchord (In Search of a New Dimension), rob-a (Element EP), and B. Toriyama (Episodes).


Eardrum sex

These food people like experiments. I was always a fan of asian cuisine, be it sweet-and-sour or sweet-and-hot. Now, some time ago (which may be longer than I remember) I found this chocolate having sweet cherries and hot chilli as flavour. Turns out, it's quite tasty and not as gross at it sounded. Listening to some of the albums of tonight, their music reminds me of this sweet and hot combination, putting in ingredience of quite opposite taste making the overall composition an aural explosion. Yeah, I know, it's always a matter of personal likings, but I hope you will have this experience with any of the tracks by Irresistible Force ft. Nik Turner (Society of Inner Light), Uwe Cremer & Thomas Rydell (Time Trilogy), Jazzcomputer.org (Waters), Tonbieger (Strandgut), Eagle (Midnight Radio Compilation 71), Gert Emmens (The Last Alien), TJ Porter (The Outsider), HyperEx Machina (Dimension Home), and Ivan Black (Unbroken Kite Strings).


Aural Roundabout

We just did a full circle. That is, I am happy to announce syndae's 360th edition, one show for every degree of the perfect two dimensional form. Now guess, where the word circus stems from? Right! And all this introduction leads us to the main topic of the show: the Electronic Circus. The festival is right ahead, one month to go, on October 1st. With quite some cool acts and of course all your musical friends are awaiting you. Some teasers, of course, you will find in tonight's edition, as there are Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Ulrich Schnauss, Metroland, BAR*, and Fryderyk Jona. Moreover, I will present fantastic music by Eckul (Codex Internnum), Digital People (Dead Orbit), and Noston (Midnight Radio Compilation 70).


Decent breaks

Oh boy, it is definitely too hot for my Chinchilla. And if that phrase reminds you of a specific song, even that would let me burst into beads of sweat. Incredible weather, nearly freezing last week, boiling hot came this one. So, even I had all the ambient sounds around me in the last edition, I still cannot bear to go the quick and beatful material. Hence, I hope you will join me for a moderate style of easy music, with tracks by Stefan Erbe (Selectronique Debussy), John Novak (Laments of a Chess Automaton), Polyphonics (Secret Silence), A.L.O.N.E. and West Remi (45 Echoes Sounds /50), Pan Electric (Concious Pilot), Cousin Silas & Kevin Lyons (The Time Dwellers), Eagle (Midnight Radio Compilation 70), Kellerkind Berlin feat. Senseo (Midnight Radio Compilation 71), Harald Seeliger, Tim Kays (Into the Rift Volume One), and Push Against New Fakes (Immortality).


Sound is all around

It does not take words or big arrangements to get emotions into music. Listening carefully to this show will offer you a variety of such feelings in a quite quiet form. And I would assume, even if you are not listening, which is one purpose of ambient music, you will still get the hints of moods offered by its vibrations. As you may have guessed, this is a show with more serene and detail loving tracks, provided by Electronic Emotions (Aural Trip), Cousin Silas & Kevin Lyons (The Time Dwellers), Marco Lucchi (Se da Lontano), Eisenlager (Dunkelreise), Elemental Noise (Abstract Knowledge), Chris Russel with Mystified (Reflections in Transit), Lutz Thuns with Askprojekt and Ashot Danielyan (Friends of Ambient 16).


Shorter Waves

Licensing music for broad- or podcasting is always an issue with big label music. In Germany, there only is one copyright collective organization at the moment, and one has to check for licensed music. That is why syndae eis registered to that organization allowing to play some of the music and artists they represent. With this right to play such music come some rules restricing the podcast episode. Hence, tonight's episode has a running time of only 30 minutes. Now you know why. An extended version of the show thankfully is available with the Modul 303 webradio, where you will get more music (see below for details). On this podcast, you will find tracks by the following artists, except for those marked with a star, which are radio only: DeeperNET (The Network), Alpha Wave Movement (Kinetic), Broekhuis, Keller & Schönwälder ft. Raughi Ebert & Thomas Kagermann (The Repelen EP), Bacila (Midnight Radio Compilation 69), Jean-Michel Jarre* (Electronica 2: The Heart of Noise), On Interrupt and Martins Garden* (Tears in Rain: A Tribute to Blade Runner), and Jamuroo (Ancient Journeys).


Traces of Notes

We are all grown ups, so school is way back, is it not? Well, not for quite anybody, as there are many electronic musicians out there sticking to a very particular one. And those musicians bring in fresh wind in many aspects, so it doesn't become old school either. Have a consequential time with tracks by Levente (The Dowland Shores), Colin Rayment (Beyond the Aurora), Realtime (Midnight Radio Compilation 69), Michael Brückner (Muzikhala), Bouvetøya (Super High Frequency), Rudolf Heimann (Polychronos), Synchronized (Galaxy), Translunar (./.), Interstellar Sequence (Observers), Listening Center (The Quietened Bunker / Compilation).


Taking the right wave

Headphones on, volume up and dive into it. This is a lotsa fun episode, bringing back memories for the older generation (like me) and a joyful ride for anyone. Back in the days, when videos were still played from tapes, synthesizers conquered the music world and this specific kind of synth style was all around. Yeah, one might call it retro, but it still sounds cool in modern clothes. Enjoy the games with tracks by Video Void (Early Traxx), Crockett (City of Ghosts), Simon Jones (Machine Dream), Anachronist (RGB), Perturbator ft. Greta Link (The Uncanny Valley), Chase Rayment (Epicenter), Heat Pump (Miami Nights), Dynatron (Aeternus), Felikitty (New Look, Same Flavor), Cuinciu (Electro-Mechanical), Kid Ferrari (Holosex), Super Borgboy (Kill Alpha Male), and Velvet Overdrive (Velvet Overdrive EP).


Don't you move

So I asked for the summer last week? Well, it just hit me a day later and now I cannot drop cloths fast enough. My, there was no reason to prove anything, you bright hot star! Ok then, if I cannot move or otherwise would leave a water trail the music cannot be to agitated. Going a bit more quiet tonight, well, mostly at least. Have a joyful time with tracks by Altus (The Sun Will Rise Tomorrow), Rik Johnson (Scars), eyes cast down (Souls Adrift, in Disrepair), A Year in the Country (The Quietened Bunker), Bernhard Wöstheinrich & Gaston Klares (Nuu-Chah-Nulth), Perceptual Defence & Syndromeda (The End of the Universe), Delicate Aparatus (Into the Rift Volume One), Mental Health Consumer (Early Spring Midnight Walks With Us), Bite (Calle Palma), and Spleen (Midnight Radio Compilation 68).


Get taken away

Where is the summer? Well, definitely not at my place currently, but on the other hand, there is nothing stopping me from putting together another one hour show for syndae. The good, the bad, and the proggie. Quite in a mix of not so fast and not so quiet tracks tonight by Remy (Fears), Jakub Fijak (The Circle), Faex Optim (Start With the River), Stefan Erbe (Selectronique Debussy), Otarion (Constellations and the Red Thread), Eagle (Midnight Radio Compilation 68), Tess Said So (Scrramble + Fate), Sai (Perspective Seen From a Different Point of View), Panabrite (The Quietened Bunker), Klangzaun, moonbooter (Cosmoharmonics), and Push Against New Fakes (Immortality).


A blaze of sounds

What is more fitting than having syndae on sunday? Well, I hope you are fine with the new time and will still enjoy the show. Which, btw., comes in a one hour edition tonight covering some ground after missing out one show. And it also provides very fine tracks I'd like to say, somewhat chilling but also a little tiny bit faster ones. Be my guest with music by moonbooter, HiKE, Ech0 Delta, Melotone, Dub Trees, Protuberance, Christian Heun, Flembaz, Extrarausch, In Vitro, and Mark Dorricott & Stan Dart.


Undiscovered memories

Water burbling, a slight wind breezing and a cloudless sky lets the stars shine bright over the landscape. Time to listen to nature and ones inner self and let life pass by in minutes. Thoughts can be anodyne, thrilling, confusing, no matter what the environment gives you. Tonight's tracks might give you any of those, simply let your mind drift and follow whatever the tunes induce. Enjoy your time with Adeptus Mechanicus & Lutz Thuns (Cosmic Expansion), Rik Johnson (Scars), Steve Roach (Future Flows), Walter Roos (Alkinoos), North Hive (Midnight Radio Compilation 66), and Ivan Black (The Wandering).
