Every Sunday I would like to treat you to my favourite music to be played on a Sunday afternoon, usually chilled and relaxed and not necessarily electronica. Most of this music has been very inspirational to me and it’s my pleasure to share this with you. Discover my musical taste beyond the beat. This is what the web is for, right?
As the nightwings come down slowly upon this Sunday, I am being reminded of an exceptional album by Dutch Jazzrock guitarist Jan Akkerman in conjunction with German musical arranger, orchestrator, conductor & composer Claus Ogerman from the year of 1978. This is just symphonic orchestra and Jan’s exceptional guitar play. The music swells up and down and […]
Yes, it’s the World Cup 2014 in Brazil and could I not treat you with some Brazilian flavour in my Sunday Music column? Of course no official World Cup songs or Samba EDM remakes, but some really lovely 60’s Bossanova from the original masters.
Moritz von Oswald aka Maurizio and Mark Ernestus, founder of the legendary Hardwax store are no less than true inventors. With their project and imprint Basic Channel, they single (or double-) handedly created Dub Techno as we know it today. Think Phylyps Trak, Octagon or Quadrant Dub, all their music breathes this swinging, futuristic technical […]
Oh look, it’s Special Agent Dale Cooper. Well, of course this is Kyle MacLachlan in the leading role of the movie Dune directed by David Lynch in 1984. While most of the soundtrack of this really nice science fiction movie (also starring Sting of The Police) had been composed by the rock band Toto in conjunction with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and the Vienna Volksoper […]
I still remember very well, where I heard Waiting For Cousteau by Jean Michel Jarre for the time. On one of my first tours with MFS Records we were driving through the scenic mountainside between Austria and Munich. It was September 19th 1992 – a Sunday.
Today I’d like to introduce you to Projekt Erde, a very unknown ambient act from Germany. I discovered their double-album Mysterious Vibration/ 11:11 in 1992, mainly due to the nicely looking CD box. Turn this music loud and let it swell and drift like a warm and gentle space wind through your rooms.
When I bought this double vinyl in 1994, I was totally shocked by the stunning beauty of Aphex Twin’s music. Sure, sometimes he drops disturbing industrial hardcore beats. But the Ambient pieces on this album belong to the most beautiful music I’ve ever heard.
