Leightweight sounds

So this was a rather busy week. How was yours? What a nice coincidence that I planned for a quieter edition of syndae tonight. Yes, time to relax a bit with beautiful melodic tracks, just what I need after an exciting week. And there are some really cool tunes in for the 60 minutes. Brand new stuff not even released yet as well as excellent music from earlier this century. Last week we had the golden times, which also are refering to musical styles from the past. Maybe it's the theme for this show. Or maybe not. We'll hear next week. But for now, let's relish outstanding tracks by Mark Isham & Michael Whalen (myndstream Collection Volume 1), Will Ackerman & Jeff Oster & Tom Eaton (Brothers), Ciro Hurtado (Luna), ELEON (Crossover), Клет (АЛКОНАВТ (Alconaut)), Ivan Black (The Green Ray), Bekki Williams (Shadow of the Wind), Andreas Baaden (Slow Down), Bernd Kistenmacher (Antimatter).



Mark Isham - Song of the Firefly Harmonium (myndstream Collection Volume 1)

Heirs to golden times

There is some tunnel at the light of the end.. erm... or something like it. So I have seen some live music festivals being planned for the next months for the music we love. Not that it always holds, as one already has been cancelled. But some smaller events are coming up, like tiny concert series at the Güterhallen in Solingen, where Stefan Erbe will play life this Sunday (cancelled due to bad weather) and Martin Stürtzer the week after. And then there is the second installment of the empulsiv online festival coming up on 3rd of September. Ok, not real-live but live on video, where you will experience fresh music by Däcker, Dayflight, Pete Farn, Rene van der Wouden, Skoulaman, Suriya, and Stefan Erbe. Three of those are on tonight's edition. But there is more great stuff celebrating the golden age of electronic music with tracks by Peter Mergener (Astronaut), Chronotope Project (Gnosis), Jim Ottaway (Threshold Of The Universe), Lisa Bella Donna (Moogmentum), Michael Brückner (Recycled Life), Stefan Erbe (Selectronisch Vol. 1), Däcker (Pareidolia), René van der Wouden (Electronic Improvisations on Shimmer Winter Days).

Modern music culture

Since short after the start, several of the cool tracks on syndae come from netlabels. They have been around for quite some while now, providing a platform for independent artist to publish and distribute their music. Most times, these netlabel offerings are free or name your price albums, so you can usually give what you think the music is worth. And it definitely is worth something. The quality of many of those releases are really good and the music spans various genres, so it never gets boring. On the 14th of July they celebrate Netlabel Day. Quite a bunch of publications from Netlabels on this day. And tonight, we feature a fitting collection of them. Enjoy an hour of diverse tunes by Mad Steppers & Dubsezion (Dub Free Vol. 8), Olympic (For the Sea), Terranigma & dvidevat (Access Frame: Monstrosity), Sonny Monk (Time is Art), tinarao & Better than matter & 5.45 (Netlabel Day 2021), Mr. Hoosteen ft. Beca Jon & STEB (To All Our Friends & Family), Tomoroh Hidari (The Reinterpretation of Dreams).

Straight into weekend mode

It's been a not too busy week, with so many people being on vacation these days. But it is always a good choice to have some rather peaceful music at hand. Either if one stayed at home, had a workful week, or being far away and relishing the scenery. Ok, it's not the most serene edition you heard on syndae, as I could not resist to throw in some beats. But that's the fun of it, isn't it? Having 60 minutes of drifting and lifting music with turns and twists in between. But listen for yourself and join me with great tracks by Ambiente Solstice (Abandoned Peace), Seifert & Steinbüchel (Missions), Klangzaun, Jon Durant & Stephan Thelen (Crossings), Ivan Black (Optophone), Gonzini Gonz (The Cousin Silas Emporium Members Project Volume 16), Joerg Dankert (Restore Faith), Mark Seelig (The Disciple’s Meditation).

Multiplexity of aural treats

These times are so complex and chaotic, it's incredible. Last week I mentioned the storm over Western Germany (which also hit Belgium quiet hard). I did not mention thatmy wife and I were on the way south on the road, when the rain got so strong that I could barely see the next car in front of me. Luckily, we decided to stop and return home. Not all of you were so lucky. For example Bernd "moonbooter" Scholl, who suffered quite some loss. If you like to support, buy at MellowJet's bandcamp page, which will also support the artists of the label. Well, also a bit "chaotic", at least style-wise, comes tonight's edition of syndae. Hope you will enjoy this mix with tracks by moonbooter (Beyond the Neon Lights), Wellenfeld (The Journey of Voyager 1), Anna B. May (Awareness), mōshonsensu (Solemn Grandeur), Static Dreamscapes (Ayni Despacho), Caballero (Soul Sparkle), Johannes Linstead (Bohemian Strings), Lisa Gerrard and Jules Maxwell (Burn), Congas Atlas (Congas Atlas), Erik Wøllo (Winter Tide: Live at SoundQuest Fest 2021).

One week and one internet fluke later, here comes a brand new edition of your beloved show. As always, I am really happy about the music to be on this edition, a mix of good old friends and brand new names. Well, I have been quite lucky otherwise, had some nice little vacation with my wife and started a new job with cool new colleagues. Looking forward to the rest of the year. And wishing all those a heads up who weren't so lucky in the last weeks heavy rainfalls, which was quite close to my place, too. Hope you will all be fine.

Modern fit in sound

Once and again philosophers raise the question, whether everything you experience is simply an illusion made up by your mind. Whatever that mind might be then. Recently I saw a science report on how we perceive our environment. All fact based science, but in the end it leaves one with the question, whether life actually is an illusion. Most of what we experience is what the brain makes out of it. Especially, as it does have no proof whatsoever about all the visual, aural, or nasal stimuli it gets. So it gets trained by what it makes out of it and builds up on what others tell (or what it thinks they tell and what it means). One can get crazy thinking about this all. So, whether the music you hear on this show is actually the same others will hear, you will never know. But you will definitely find out if you like it. And it’s great music (at least to me) coming from Nigel Mullaney (Matters Of The Heart), Divine Matrix (Heart Of The Shaman), elektrojudas (virus), Bilbosa (Ayla), Dynatron (Surveillance), Jong (Meeting Elea), Alan Elettronico (Electric Mind), Oliva (Lilith and the Garden of Eden), Kanz (Remind me Tomorrow), Axess (Time Traveller).

The definite time-out

Relax, let’s do it. Even if Frankie won’t go to Hollywood. It’s definitely the time of the year to go for recreation and leave all the stress behind. I bet you’ve earned it, too. So, lean back, drop into your hammock and rest. Now, a couch will do fine as well. Or a bed. Or… Ok, the important thing is to listen to great music that has the chill factor. and there is quite a bunch of those on tonight’s edition. Have some outstanding listening time with Manila Ice (She wants me dead), David Gerard (The Anxious Beating Of My Tensile Heart), Equanimous & Kaya Project (Mystic Dreaming), M’elle Louise (Deliverance), Bop (Matters of the Heart), Jong (Meeting Elea), Jens Radig (Schwebende Musik), elektrojudas (virus), Joao Ceser (Fiumi.brz), 4T Thieves and Pandacetamol (The Electric Home), Banco de Gaia (Apollo).

Sequel lovers listen

When I grew up, there was no internet (yeah, I am old). The only source of music were radio and tv (and concerts of course). Coincidentally, at the same time the electronic music movement grew up, which caught my intention in the 80s with the one and only Schwingungen radio show. Yes, this kind of music was played on public radio by the time. Listening to Berlin School music nowadays definitely reminds me of those good old radio times. And actually these times are kind of the reason for me doing this podcast. So how not to celebrate this style once and again at syndae? Tonight's the night, and it's all freshly released music as well. From artist picking up the baton from the past and pushing it into the modern times. Join me, will you? And listen to these fantastic tracks by Jon Durant & Stephan Thelen (Crossings), Frank Tischer & Mac of BIOnighT (Coordinates), Fratoroler (Berlin), Uwe Rechzeh (Voyage), Shaping Mind and Martin Lüders (Schwebende Musik).
