In difference combined

Surfing on Youtube, Vimeo or similar video providers, I often stumble upon videos done for a music track. It reminds me somewhat of the early days and music TV. Actually, a good pal did a video teaser for my The Sound of Syndae CD, which is awesom (the video, and of course the CD). So I thought, I would try to do some video for tracks to publish. Turns out, there is quite some good software out there, for free even, to cut and edit videos. The most difficult part actually is to find a theme and, depending on the theme, fitting video fragments to combine to a full track length video. So there I am spending time on video creation, and I surely will let you know about its outcome later this year. Tonight's edition of syndae somewhat felt like combining fragments, as the tracks are rather short in duration. Therefore you get an eight track show tonight with contributions by Xenoton (Perpetuum), Video Void (The Balcony Girl), Deep Shoq and Chemtrails (Summer Sun Vol. 7), Organoid (2009 - 2019 Showcase), Tuuligan (Tales of Hidden Worlds), Nattefrost, Osinski (Try).


Playlist:

Xenoton - Perpetuum (Perpetuum / Single)
Video Void - Yardwork (The Balcony Girl)
Deep Shoq - Thirst (Summer Sun Vol. 7)
Chemtrails - Hoverpad (Summer Sun Vol. 7)
Organoid - Inner Vacuum (2009 - 2019 Showcase)
Tuuligan - Lagoon (Tales of Hidden Worlds)
Nattefrost - Save the Planet, Go Vegan (./.)
Osinski - I Colori Tenui (Try / Compilation)

Letting electrons flow

We are living in a short-lived time. The world spins faster and faster, and events are rushing by like sport cars on a racing track. Well, I don't think that everything was better in the years behind. But I think it sometimes is a good idea to stand still and look back. Or rather listen back, if you talk in music. Back in the days when electronic music was young musicians tended to experiment with these new instruments making sound from current. They found new ways to express themselves, let the inspiration flow into the art they created. In an instant. Nowadays, while the instruments are no new wonder anymore there are still such people enjoying to let the flow surprise themselves. Tonight, we have some of these musicians and their tracks with IcingWolf, Crash Dump File, Broken Bow, Svartkropp & Blinky Blinky Computerband (Jammern & Grillen), Perceptual Defence (Changing Images), Klangzaun, Bernhard Wöstheinrich & Evan Foreman (Live in Farmington 2019).

No tricks, just magic

Do you enjoy magic? I mean, the real world stuff where they do all sorts of tricks which seem to be impossible to happen. Magicians somehow took over several talent shows, it seems, but this may all be my bubble of experience. To me, it still is fascinating how they make cards vanish and reappear from thin air. I know it's a trick and I think about how it could be done. I also admit that I sometimes watch videos revealing tricks, just out of curiousity of how it is done. And my biggest respect to the magician's imagination on ways to fool spectators. Creating music that really gets to me to me also is kind of magic. Here, it is not about fooling but about injecting emotional hooks into the listener. Most commercial productions don't do it for me, as they do work with the equivalent of magic tricks, but not with passion in mind. The tracks on my show don't play tricks. They simply have the vibe to make me love them. Some of such tracks are on tonight by Kuni (Coalesce), moonbooter (EVIL 18 2DE), Aevio (Bioluminiscence), Schiller (Morgenstund), Thomas Lemmer & Christoph Sebastian Pabst (Meerblick), D-Echo Project (Cine Visions).

Many things worth listening to

Finding your own way isn't really easy, is it? And it's sometimes not the most comfortable thing to do, as you have to think about yourself in very much detail. Who you are. What you want. Why you are here. And where you are going. Really fundamental things to find out to define yourself and your way forward. The outcome may be a surprise to yourself. But aside from those global questions, finding your own way is also true for when you live your desires. Expressing yourself with music might be one way to go, and it does not have to be a musical career you're after. One way to share your passion is to go public. Netlabels serve a great purpose nowadays in presenting a fantastic broadness of musical styles, a platform for those who want to give with no restrictions imposed. Some of those we have tonight, picked from the vast amount of releases from the Netlabel day 2019. Enjoy the music by Curious Inversions (Squares of Coloured Circles), Unmori (Monumental: Netlabel Day 2019), Orgonon Sound Machine (Radiation Overload), Flextronic (Ethnostep 9), Shadermader (Sacrosanct Remixes Vol. 1), Rose (Mental Flooding).

Loving the darker hours

It's planetarium time again tomorrow, where you can experience the premiere of Baltes and Erbe's A-11. I will try to be there, of course. But it's not the typical music you'd expect when watching a nightly sky where stars pass directly overhead. I am quite sure, the music on this edition would fit quite well to such a view: Ambient at it's best. Although, it sometimes gets a bit more energetic than pure beauty. And we have a wonderful collection of tracks by great artists, who are Christian Fiesel (Astronauts 1), Miles Richmond & Peter Grenader (feat. Steve Roach) (POV), Shinpal (Seven Lives), Ivan Black (@Ambient Online), Static Dreamscapes, DesuExSounds.

In joy together

One party gone, more events to come before summer break. Or is there a break at all? Well, not musical wise, as syndae will go on without rest for the next weeks. And some really nice music to come, so don't miss out. Besides music, the best thing about such parties is to meet up with like-minded people sharing their passion for our kind of electronic music. Ok, I admit, I also enjoyed the food being served, but the talks were really great. So, whenever you get the chance, join your musical friends for a sit in and enjoy each others company. Which also counts for this podcast, as you are never alone listening to your favourite sounds. Lean back now, and enjoy a fantastic time with Stan Dart (Murinsel Vol. 2), Ken Elkinson (Chilltopia), Faber (Kaleidoscope), Jens Gad (Pink Flow), Wavestar II (E-Scape 2019), Mikk Rebane (Between).

The green side of synth

So tomorrow it's the Gardenparty again and I am looking forward to meet all the nice fans and friends of electronic music and the like. This event is quite different from music festivals, as it is...well...a party. You have drinks, you have food, you have talks, and lots of fun with great music on stage. It's like a family come together, although with quite a big family. And there is another cool event coming up in two weeks: the premiere of the new Baltes & Erbe album A-11, of which you will get to hear one song tonight. And, of course, more fantastic music by Peter Mergener (Pink Flow), Multiple Sense (Lunary), Time Away and K37 (Legacy of Thought: History of the Earth).

Ready, steady, and peace out

Fixing a toilet seat does not sound very exciting, and it is not. Especially, when one encounters all the screws being rusty and don't do their job anymore. Well, you are screwed then. So I had a nice afternoon ranting swearing. Well, all the better when the show planned for the evening contains some much more exciting sounds and helps coming down. This is really a wonderful collection of tracks tonight, and I hope they help anyone getting steady. At least, I hope you will enjoy the music as much as I. On this edition you will get the fabulous music of Der Waldläufer (Feel), Mike Woodlark (Mackland Ave), Ancient Astronaut (Through the Tunnel of Love), Eko Fisk (Psychopaths on the Western Frontier), Stan Dart (Murinsel Vol. 2), Eagle (Black Eagle)

Life is sound at the beat

Back from a short and exciting vacation and we go all in to the beat. Yes, we relish some soundbreaking features on this edition, real diamonds of its own. So let's put some pressure to your speakers as if we are going to grow some diamonds. We had some natural beats recently as well, i.e. thunder and rain pouring down on us. Also making one's heart jump a bit, but not as fine as when the soul dances to the rhythm of human making. Enjoy some nice rhythmic electronic music with tracks by KUNI (Coalesce), Spintribe (Phantoms), Osiris4 (Black Diamonds), ATOEM (Voltage Controlled Time), Protuberance (Recollections Vol. 3).
