Sound strokes

Art is all about rousing emotions. If a piece of art doesn't touch you, it is not meant for you. And it does not matter what kind of emotion. Any emotion counts. Reverse, of course, not everything that stimulates your emotions you is art. Obviously, art is a personal matter. Based on experiences you made in the past. And this is true for any kind of art, be it paintings, or be it music, as in the case of what syndae presents to your inclind ears. Hopefully, what you will hear tonight will fall into the category of art of your likings. It definitely falls into mine. Listen in and decide for yourself for tracks by Kirsten Agresta Copely (Around the Sun), windspace (Zephyr), Steve Roach (The Sky Opens), Indigo Symbol (Terminal), EugeneKha (Sky Breath), Test Card (Music For The Towers).

Wonders in vibrations

I'm not sure, why I tend to choose rather melodic music recently for this podcast. Maybe it is the mood I am in, so that I need a little contrast to my work, which is rather chaotic at the moment. Which is about to change soon, to become a different kind of chaotic (Ha!). Or maybe it's the season, where it stays rather dark most time of the day. Or maybe it is the political situation, which kind of drives one crazy seeing so much incompetence and selfishness of people being in charge all over the world. Or maybe because it's Valentines today? Not really. But whatever the reason, the music that currently finds its way into the shows is simply wonderful to listen to. And wonders are most welcome, especially in form of tracks like provided by Marc Enfroy (Surrounded), Hollan Holmes (Milestones), Stan Dart (Loneliness EP), Tuuligan (Sininen), Darshan Ambient (A Day Like Any Other), and Andy Pickford (Aphelion).

Enjoying the scent of sounds

Why is it that people have different tastes? If you are looking at food, some prefer sweet, some salty, some rather bitter food, which others can't even taste. On a biological level, taste actually is a combination of the sensation of flavour and the sensation of smell. And it is less a genetic thing but rather an emotional one. Depending on what emotions you relate to a flavour and smell, you may like or dislike the food you get. But why talking about food? To me it is the same as in music. Whatever feeling you relate to the sounds and structures of a musical piece, it results in a balance between like and dislike when listening to it. Of course, there is lots of variations in what I like in music and music of similar style is no guarantee to like or dislike it. Well, listen for yourself as you will get some variations of electronic sounds tonight with tracks by Time Away (Seas on the Moon / Compilation), Mikael Fyrek (Further Asunder), Ron Boots, 99.9, and Broekhuis, Keller & Schönwälder (The Repelen EP).

Treasures of the brainbow

Do you think that life may be an eperiment with some white-bearded guy watching from above how it works out? Well, this might sound a bit like the famous novel by Douglas Adams. Following what happens in the world, one could only derive that it is. And better than any novel, suddently some thing happens, no one would have guessed. Not pointing to anything specific here. In the end, life is what you make of it. And more or less often one has to try things, to follow one's instincts on what might serve your life best. That may also be true for an artist, when looking for the next cool piece of music or sound to express oneself. In that sense, I hop you have great fun and joy with tracks by Lakmus Red (Shepherd Drift), kothyus (Six Listen), Culture Deaf (Audio Dark), C Mantle (Acre, Aged 10), Noston (Dark Lord is Coming), and Sternenspringer (Exoplanet).

Synchronize with sonic waves

So, I actually wanted to get the show a bit more quiet and ambient tonight. But then I came across all these great and partially hypnotic tracks. Not that they are pushing and up with beats, it's still a wonderful and colourful smorgasbord of aural treats. Moreover do these tracks bear a capturing filigree as if woven from the finest wires. Thus I fell for them and it felt wonderful. It also puts an end to a mixed week, where I got lots of things done, but still cannot find the real rest in mind. Maybe you know such times when thoughts keep spinning in your head. For example, because there are decisions or changes up that you are looking forward to but which still make you feel slightly uncomfortable. Or you are bursting of ideas but cannot decide where to start, which keeps you up all night. Hm, well. The tracks on this show helped me to peace out a bit, without being serene at all. Have a joyful time with Byron Metcalf & Jennifer Grais (Sacrament), Cat Friendly (Seas on the Moon / Compilation), Cousin Silas & Kevin Lyons (11 Tales of Space and Intrigue), Steve Roach (Trance Archeology), Wilfried Hanrath (Kantele / Compilation), and D-Echo Project (Cura).

Events on the horizon

Is it already the third show this year? Crazy. Seems, 2020 starts fast. And there is already a bunch of events going on these months. So be prepared for a busy time ni which events are lining up like rarely before. One of these events is a new one, too: db2fluctiation. It's a festival happening in Belgium on February 22. You won't get many more twos and zeros combined for a date. And of course you will get some impressions for the artists of that festival in this edition of syndae by Daniel B. Prothese (Hollektrokraut) and Nothing but Noise (Existence Oscillation (possible) Future). Beyond the festival, there is more elegant music on this show, of course So have a great evening with tracks by Eagle (Starry Starry Night 2020), Cornel Hecht (Ranger Things), Robert Jürjendal & Miguel Noya (The Power of Distance), and Remy (Exhibition of Dreams Revisited).

Loving it spicy

Tonight we have an interesting mixed style episode. Actually this is edition is fourth the year with its number of 505. So, if you are into numbers, here you go. The music on this show is not so mathematically focused, but surely kind of is, because it is electronic music in its best. And while I am sitting here enjoying the very mild winter we have so far, I definitely enjoy the tracks on this show making the air and myself vibrating. Of course, accompanied by the fitting images in my head, implied by the music of Point (Human Music), Darshan Ambient (A Day Like Any Other), Andy Pickford (Aphelion), MVar (Falling), Beukotreug (Cosmic Spring), and Klangzaun.

P.S.: By the time, this show was recorded, I did not know about the condition of Michael Allison (Darshan Ambient). Today and with great sadness, I got aware of him passing away. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Mery-Go-Round celebration

Welcome to the next decade in the two thousand's. It was a smooth and non-exciting time for me, well, mostly. Tonight marks the lift-off for more editions with fine electronic music on syndae. So, again, welcome! And I am sure there are some really exciting things in the making for 2020, some of which can already be heard on this edition. Now, technically, there is no reason for celebrating a new year. Earth just did another turn around our beloved star named sun. But it is like birthdays, a memorable loop of time for us humans. Let's hope for the best and such is the selection for tonight's edition with tracks by Eleon (Cerulean), MegaHast3r (Memories of an Old Man), Niteffect (Nip In The Bud), Fortadelis (Exposure), Cornel Hecht (Ranger Things), and Jabber (Shepherd Drift).

The many faces of the one

Oh, well, it's that time of the year again, when people get crazy, panically running around and looking for things to put in boxes. For hard core fans of syndae I do have a little surprise this time: The Dawn of Syndae is available as download album since today. It is an album having only one track: the title music of syndae. Well, except for one track, you will get to hear on the show tonight. Ok, that's about it for written self-advertisement. More than that you will find fantastic peaceful music fitting this special season. You could actually play this in family settings, if it weren't for me talking so much. But, hey, one cannot have it all. Howsoever, have a joyful 30 minutes with excellent tracks by Forrest Fang (Ancient Machines), Harald Nies (The Circle), Robert Scott Thompson (Green Flash and the Dryline Chaser), Three Fields (Undefined), moonbooter (Both Sides of the Moon). Oh, and the last one by myself.
