Hi All

Last week John Kerr put something special on his facebook page!!
A short special of the build up of the April 2016 E-day performance.
Niko Olofsen had some more material and thanks to the work of John
We now have a longer and intensive version of this preparation :-)

https://www.facebook.com/john.kerr.501?fref=nf&pnref=story

HERE'S SOME MORE SOUND-CHECK FUN FOR YOU!
This time a longer version of the Oirschot JUXTAPOSITION Concert
sound-check on E-Day April 12th 2016 ...plus 12 minutes of excerpts
from EVERY track of the 2-hour long DVD! (Total length of film is 22
minutes and it's 720p... so choose HD in your player!)

After I published a short black and white demo film here on Facebook
(see further down the page) which was meant to develop into an extra
film for the DVD "JUXTATPOSITION - The Oirschot Concert", I received
many positive reactions and some requests to see the entire film.
Sadly this was not possible as the film was never completed because
there was simply not enough room for it on the DVD. However, the
reactions to the demo gave me the idea of going for a completion by
editing it myself using the original footage by Niko Olofsen.

Featuring John Kerr, Ron Boots, Harold van der Heijden, Bas Broekhuis,
Frank Dorittke, Synthex (Jeffrey Haster) and John Dyson together with
a bunch of other folk you may or may not recognize... ;-) Want the
DVD? Of course you do! It's available here:
www.groove.nl/jump2.php?artnum=gr-227 and the JUXTAPOSITION CD you can
find here: www.groove.nl/jump2.php?artnum=gr-221

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
And the nominees for the Newcomers are now also know for the Schallwelle-Preis!
And 2 musicians that Groove has supported last year are among the 5!!
Martin Peters who with his great releases Angels of Nowhere and
a name many of you don't know yet!! S-I-M which is the artist name of
Jacco In't Veld a Dutch musician who with his debut album
Apotheosis got noticed by many!! And for sure it is a great release!!

A Mystical Ambient Night of Lucid Dreams.
And we are planning something very special for November 2017!!

During the night from 04.11.2017 to 05.11.2017!
From 23.00 until 8.00 in the morning.
Place - Planetarium Bochum
Musicians:
Frank Dorittke,
Ian Boddy,
Stephan Whitlan - Stevo Petherick,
Harold van der Heijden
and Ron Boots.
Imagery:
Klaus Dieter Unger

During this night the musicians will play 9 hours of individual and
corporative pieces that will flow through the dome and with the
imagery of Klaus Dieter Unger transform the Bochum Planetarium into an
ambient cradle of images and music.  Thanks to Sylvia Sommerfeld
and the Planetarium in Bochum for the possibility to do this !!

This will be a 9 hour musical extravaganza without any breaks or
pauses. Different sets of different musicians will be on stage the
whole night but of coarse people can go in and out of the Dome if they
want too. But they will always be accompanied by the soft spheric
waves of musical essence.
So put this date in your calender and we will update you as soon as
all the details of ticket ordering are revealed.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
CD News!

"Robert Schroeder - Velocity" is in and ready to ship!!
Robert Schroeder puts weight on good and convincing sounds.
It has become a real electronic album, with fresh sounds embedded in
beautiful dreamy harmonies and some very nice accents added.
New ideas and new harmonies are combined with the typical Schroeder
style in a very interesting way. A few tom sounds and the apply of the
vocoder enrich this album, making it to an oeuvre that can be compared
with some of the better Klaus Schulze titles.

Thanks for your time.

Ron Boots

Ron Boots - 18 March 2017
Ron Boots is among the most engaging Electronic Musicians to ever
export music from The Netherlands. Since the late 1980s, his work has
been rooted in the Berlin School, yet reaches far beyond the basic
fundamentals of the genre. Combining elements of Contemporary
Instrumental, film soundtracks and Spacemusic, Boots' music moves
easily between the mainstream and the cosmic.

Along with many noted albums, concerts and collaborations, Ron Boots
has also been an encouraging force to a myriad of emerging artists.
His record label, Groove Unlimited, and music festivals, E-Live and
E-Day, have overseen the production of numerous significant releases
and concert events.
An avid concert performer, Ron Boots at last makes his solo Stateside
debut - in Philadelphia at The Gatherings Concert Series on Saturday
18 March 2017

58504 - Schwarzmond - Moonbooter

With “Schwarzmond” moonbooter shows us his dark side for the first
time. As on "The Wave", the new album combines classical electronic
sounds with modern times. Bernd consciously named his idols in the
booklet of the album: J-M Jarre, VNV Nation, Daft Punk, Michael Cretu
and Klaus Schulze. And in fact there are several similarities.
Nevertheless, each song carries the clear handwriting of moonbooter.
And that’s how it should be. Powerful analogue sound configure
constantly, then suddenly drop down into pieces or rise up to an other
climax. Dominating beats accompanied by silky soft pads are shining in
the ears. Hard electric guitar in addition to gentle beats with many
different melodies is only moonbooters style. It seems as if Bernd had
unified all the synthetic sounds of the past 40 years on this album.
Many details, high dynamic sound and the feeling of being a part of
the music make Schwarzmond a special listening experience. Yes,
Schwarzmond is a "dark" album. But it never gets too dark and cold. If
you love the night, this does not have to be.

11099 - Sentinel - Jonn Serrie

The six deep space "paintings" making up "The Sentinel" are based on
and inspired by Steven Caldwell’s (aka Stewart Cowley) Terran Trade
Authority book series published between 1978 and 1980. These (as it
seems) were highly influential art /sci-fi story combinations for
folks interested in hardware oriented sci-fi at the time depicting a
fictional near future where man has reached the stars by nations
collaborating on joint projects to explore the solar system and nearby stars.

Moreover, Jonn’s idea is to transport the audience as close as
possible to where the music exists, more particular into deep virtual
reality starship realms, the point where the Sentinel becomes the
music and you become the Sentinel (with the goal to dissolve the veil
between source and destination).

Well, the velvet, mysterious and very spacious sound worlds making up
the 62-minute Virtual Reality audio journey are another gracious space
cruiser in the true sense where cosmic magic unfolds in many layers,
dimensions and through expansive (often non-melodic) soundscapes. The
weightless, drifting textures and intriguing moodscapes accompanies
the listener through interstellar gateways, massive star fields and
other galactic splendor while triggering the imagination gently and
without any urgency. While immersing in the flowing, off-the world
outcome you're indeed on a starship, you're wearing that spacesuit, it
is your universe and your story, all told through musical imagination.

All in all, "The Sentinel" offers a high-quality aural pathway to the
stars tapping into the deeper end while mysteries lurk in every corner
and distant horizons keep calling.
