Rollicking adventures in sounds

Episode 608

Do you know the saying that a dog and its owner very often do look alike? Well, sometimes the music I choose for a show does actually match the state of my mind. Well, not quite. As the music would be even more chaotic than the one you will get on this edition. It's still turbulent enough to reflect my state of mind. It was quite an eventful week workwise and on the private side as well. And the upcoming week will be not less of a mess. On the other hand, there is beauty in chaos. And the more in the tracks you will get to listen tonight with music by niteffect (Non-existent Substances), ModReaktor (Martin Christie Presents Electronic Music Travels), Holle Mangler (Tales From A Fairyworld (Part 1)), Hollywood Burns (The Age of the Saucers), preston.outatime (Mirror Radius), Synth.NL (Time Travel), Scanglobe (Industrial Sunrise), synaptyx (An Ever Expanding Collection of Eclectic Covers and Free Stuff in General), 4T Thieves (Electronic March of the Llamas), Zergon (Dolos), Stefan Erbe (Raumzeit Festival Digital).


Music not meant for driving

Episode 607

Is your area also plastered with roadworks? We have some building spots that already last for more than 3 years. And I am talking about roadworks not some airport. Soon they will lock down the main road where I live, so I have to detour about 5 minutes or so to get to my doctor appointments. Good heavens, 10 more minutes of my life time wasted on the road not doing anything. Ok, well, I waste much more time on other occasions, but that's not the point. Or is it? Am I ranting about some short detour? Well, seems I need some rest harder than I thought. So here it comes with serene and relaxing tracks by Time Away & Athinaniki (Age of Water), Ambiente Solstice (Living Water), Konrad Paulsen (Atem), Eisenlager (Midnightradio Compilation 109), Imaginary Landscape (Undiscovered Landscapes), Forrest Fang (Forever Cascade), Peter Phippen (Into the Ancient), Volker Lankow (Ephemerality), Veil of Alchemy (Midnightradio Compilation 109).


Dipped into sound

Episode 606

We are off into a night full of wonders this time, listening to some quite chilled and no-sweat tunes. Why? Because I felt like it. It's kind of like life which currently offers so many facets from joy to sadness, from fun to stupidity, from ignorance to love. Yeah, I am bit on a philosophical trip tonight. No wonder, as these are strange times and the world is getting crazier each day. Luckily, there always are cool guys out there producing so fantastic sounds and scapes to listen to. So join me for a great show where my guests are Cosmic Noise Crew (Twelfth Listen), Zero Cult & Unhide, Potlatch and Eguana (Lofi Grill, Vol. 1), Клет (1984? Нет!), Sense (Grey Sky Dub), Globular (Long Grass for Small Frogs), Anna B May (Into The Woods (Remixes)), Synth.NL (Time Travel), illocanblo (Habitat), Flavour & Rune (Happy Birthday Mister Camembert!).


Whatever inspires you most

Episode 605

Welcome to 2022. Although, this edition is rather a look back to the end of last year which left many saddened as we lost Sylvia Sommerfeld to another realm. She and her persevering work on supporting the electronic music scene will be greatly missed. This show is dedicated to her, not to spread sorrow, but to honor her and inspire anyone to follow your hearts in what you are doing as intense as she did. There will be mostly traditional style music tonight, with tracks by Loom (The Tree Hates The Forest), Stefan Erbe (Breathe), Unisphere (Endless Endeavor), Sequential Dreams (Star Lost), Michael Brückner (midnightradio compilation 108), Wöstheinrich, Lankow & von Garnier (The Wilhelmshagen Sessions 20210917), Lisa Bella Donna (Appalachian Wilderness).


Happy new beats

Episode 604

How was 2021 to you? For me, it held quite a pile of surprises on its menu, negative as well as positive. While this is simply life happening, one thing stays steady with me and also acts as a kind of pillar for me: syndae. It is does act as both a compass and a vent, giving me the opportunity to reflect my emotional state as well as give something to you, whenever you like to listen and experience music from other places. Hope we will meet again, in sound at least, next year. Until then, enjoy the past being pushed out with rolling drums. Thus, tonight with dancable music by Sven Phalanx (Klangtherapie Remixes), Maralewo (Obmonac), VOSM (Modular Cuisine), Bassoniq (Ringworld), Stan Dart (MurInsel Vol. 4), Dayflight (Raumzeit Festival Digital), Joao Ceser (Orto.Brz), ELEON (Cafe Chill), Bit Cloudy (Energy Giant), TNT (Midnightradio Compilation 108), Sepslow (Faryar).

Happy Chillmas

Episode 602

Wow, what a crazy final working week. Oh, yes, I am on vacation from next week on. Only, like I am now working in home office, I will also do vacation in home office. But that's fine, as I do not go and see sea or climb hills or strive a forest, I simply need some rest. How about you? What will you be doing the next two weeks? Still working? Going on a journey? Whatever you plan, syndae will be there with you with no pause at all. As a closer for this years working season (at least for me) this will be a final chill out edition for 2021. Well, 2021 also needs to chill out and hopefully 2022 will be a bit "more normal" again. We will see.

Check these sounds, mate!

Episode 600

Wow! Is it 600 already? What a journey. Who would have thought the podcast would last that long back in the days? No big deal this time, though. Just the realization of an idea I carried along for quite some time. A special with music from soundtracks. But, of course, not that I pick my favourite movie composers for syndae. And there are quite some great ones, like John Williams, Howard Shore, Tan Dun, Blake Neely, Michael Nyman, and many more. No, with exception of the first, all of them have their roots in electronic music. So go on and pick your movie position and listen in to great tracks by Hans Zimmer & Steve Mazzaro (Army of Thieves), Thorsten Quaeschning (Cargo), Thilo Rex (The Dominoe Principle), Klaus Schulze (Angst), Christopher Franke (Babylon 5 Vol. 1), Vangelis (Blade Runner), Tangerine Dream (Great Wall of China), Michael Stearns (Baraka), Paul Haslinger (Underworld), Jean-Michel Jarre (Oxygène).
