There's more than one way

Today I watched a vlog on self publishing. While it was about novels I quite see some parallels to music to be heard on syndae. Some of which is released via a label and others by the artist on his or her own. The vlog did not favour one over the other as both have their benefits and issues. As with novels, self publishing in music does imply a lot of work to be done by yourself, which is usually done by a label. Be it cover design or distribution as well as advertising. On one hand, these tasks steal quite some of an artist's time maybe better spent on composing. On the other hand you can decide everything on your own and quite surely will raise your expertise in a wider field of areas. On my show, I usually have a mix of both, self published and label published music. If you can hear a difference in quality, let me know, because I can't most of the time. So, however published or distributed, enjoy tonight's excellent tracks by Roberto Sass (Ancient Wonders), Stefan Erbe (Reflect), Menzman & Friends (Insights), Curious Inversions (Spire), Space Station (Infinity), and Stan Dart.


Playlist:

Roberto Sass - Zeus at Olympia (Ancient Wonders)
Stefan Erbe - Here Comes the News (Reflect)
Menzman & Friends - Berlin Thoughts (Insights)
Curious Inversions - Ascention (Spire)
Space Station - Infinity (Infinity)
Stan Dart - La Silla (Paranal) (./.)

Working on sweet things

Back from Belgium with a bag full of CDs and a brain full of nice experiences, meeting up with friends and artists of the electronic music scene. It was a wonderful festival with cool and fresh music, and my last music event for quite some time. Winter is up in the northern hemisphere. And also some festive days with lots of delicious treats. Well, if you are not into candy bars and chocolate santa, maybe you like the treats I have on this show. Very traditional tonight with brand new music by Michael Brückner (During a Lull and Other Tales), Broekhuis, Keller & Schönwälder (Live @ B-Wave), Bernhard Wöstheinrich (Elsewhere), and Anantakara (Momentum Lapses).

Food for fantasy

Tomorrow I'll be on the road to Belgium, looking forward to great musical acts on stage and to meeting lots of electronic music fans. If you are there, don't forget to say Hi. Of course, I'll be there with Stefan Erbe joining his stall for presenting The Sound of Syndae, and Stefan will do some interviews for empulsiv, too. There is plenty to see and hear at the festival, the B-Wave organizers did a great job on that. But before I jump the road, with tonight's edition we celebrate the beauty in electronic music. Easy going and relaxing music before the heat goes on. With wonderful and brand new music, brought to us by Chronotope Project (Lotus Rising), Steve Orchard (Skyway), Sylvain Carel (Talisman), alucidnation (Paracosmic), Gavino Morreti (The Corn Mother), and Reskimus.

Revealing a new self

Is it the time of evolution? At least for some artists it seems to be. They slough their skin and appear in new garb, adding new and fascinating aspects and style elements to their music. Hence, you will hear cool and new music tonight, which might need some time to recognized the artist behind. And this is one of the reasons why I love this electronic music genre, it's so awesomely diverse, it never stands still in time, and still remains timeless when listening to tracks from earlier in history. You will geet all of this with the tracks by Stefan Erbe (Reflect), Progeny -1 (Ellipse), moonbooter (Groundcontrol), Pan Electric (Step Out), Rudolf Heimann (Trancefusion), Chris Gate (The Sound of Syndae).

Being above the crazyness

So I sat on my couch looking outside, where the moon lit the neighbourhood, standing bright and full at the sky. This seems the best time to actually watch the stars above, with a clear sky and only a few lights soiling it. Great not to live in a big city, where even at night the air is glimmering of street and car lights. Might be even better futher in the fields. Do you like watching the stars? Thinking about it, they make one feel really small, tiny even. There is such a vast space out there, and we on earth are such an unimportant atomic piece to the universe. And being on this tiny little planet, people have nothing better to do than to fight each other for even less important things. With his edtion, let's take a little breath and rest from all this madness. Ambient is calling with tracks by HuuHaa (Frostient), Madhavi Devi (The Truth of Being), Jarguna and Friends (Trapped Vol. 2), Casimir Corona (An Occurrence in the Inverse Universe), and Fiona Joy Hawkins (Piano Peace).

Highlights in a row

Back from the voiceless here comes a reminder and announcer edition. There are quite some nice events coming up, like B-Wave in Belgium, which I mentioned last week. Another event I nearly overlooked is Electronic Music 3, which is up on November 24th, three weeks from now. Of course, Sound of Sky happens tomorrow parallel to Zeit with Schmoelling and Waters in Oirschot. Boy, busy weeks. And then there are new releases up, like Equinoxe Infinity by Jean-Michel Jarre, due 16th of November, and Andy Pickford's Objects & Expressions I. And that's where you will get tracks from tonight, starting with Michael Stearns ft. L. Subrarmaniam (Baraka), followed by Jean-Michel Jarre (Equinoxe Infinity) and Andy Pickford (Objects & Expressions I), and completing the show with Otarion (Under Surface) and Wellenfeld (Ten).

Gorgeous sounds

Having a cold isn't really too bad. But the downsize for me: it stole my voice. Well, instead of dropping this weeks edition, I employed a guest host for you. So you will meet George. Not a real person though, but a computer generated speaker. I remember back in the days, when computer voices sounded really bad, somewhat worse than mine at the moment. But nowadays, high-end generators can do wonders. Not that I could employ one. But free speakers are quite good today as well. And George was free, so thank you, George, for taking over for tonight. Not the longest speaking time though, as we only have three tracks on the show tonight, which are by Pollard, Daniel, Booth (Eight), Wolfgang Nachahmer (Eiszeit), and Kellerkind Berlin (Spinning Around Bits and Bytes).

Delicacies with bite

After the festival is before the festival? Well, there are a bunch of concerts coming up, like BKS in Bad Sulza next weekend and Sound of Sky as well as Johannes Schmoelling the weekend after. But the next bigger station is on December 1st with the B-Wave festival. Where I also will be and have a combined stall with erbemusic. Well, time to give you some teasers for the event in form of tracks by Erik Wøllo (Threshold Point) and Pyramaxx (Distance) tonight. But, of course, there is more fresh music on this edtion. Fantastic music to be heard by Progeny -1 (Ancient Artisans), David Wright (Stranger Days), and Colisseum (Adventus).

Getting right to the core

What an exciting time. Tomorrow is the third event to visit and present the Sound of Syndae CD. I've been to Oirschot before, several times, but it was never like this. And more than that there will be really cool acts on stage the whole day. I really hope to meet quite a lot of you guys to talk music. Ron Boots is doing a great job there over the past 20 or so years, with E-Live and E-Day being a beacon of the EM world. But let's check on tonight's edition of syndae, which will present some amazing music as well. And brand new stuff as well that just reached my hands. It's kind of action packed but far from technoid. Just get the volume right and have a joyful listen to Time Away & Myth (Dreaming of Other Worlds), Weldroid (End of Mission), Parallel Worlds & Dave Bessell (Dystopia), Aevin (The Aftermath), Red Plane (Mask), and Audio Cephlon (Oumuamua).
