HELLO 2021 Cancelled!!

Due to the pandemic, many events in Germany and Europe have already
been cancelled. Of course, our small, but fine EM world was and is
also affected by it (e.g. KRAFTWERK for the Beethoven Year in Bonn ....)

We are also worried about your health, especially because of the sharp
rise in infections here in the Ruhr area and in neighbouring
countries. But we are not alone in this!
On Thursday the head of the planetarium, Professor Dr. Hüttemeister,
called. She told us the plans for the expected reopening after the
rebuilding on 15.12.2020.

https://www.planetarium-bochum.de

 Status 10/22/2020, 4 pm:

Ms Hüttemeister is not at all sure whether she will be able to reopen
to the public or stage live concerts after the official handover of
the keys with the Lord Mayor on 15 December.
At the moment (Saturday, 24.10., 18 hrs) the incidence value here in
Bochum is 116.34! Unfortunately this threatening tendency is always
rising and not falling!

If the PlaBo can be opened at all after 15.12.2020, a total of only 50
people - including the planetarium crew and musicians - should be able
to enter the dome! - So what to do?

So I immediately had a long phone conversation with Ron Boots. Because
of the great danger we both agreed to cancel "HELLO 2021" under these
circumstances, not only here but also in the Netherlands and Great
Britain. As things stand today, Ian Boddy should not have left the UK
anyway ...

I had the impression that Frau Hüttemeister was glad that Ron and I
had made this decision. But she immediately informed me that the
"Phase 3" concert next year could be made up for as soon as possible!
But only CORONA knows when!

How this will be handled with the tickets that have already been
ordered and paid for has not yet been finally clarified. The PlaBo
employee responsible for this, Mr Mittring, will take care of it. We
as schallwende e.V. have nothing to do with this directly.

But as soon as I get news about the modalities, I will inform you immediately!

Robert Fox - House of Chimes (cd)

Brand new studio album coming soon…..CD release date 20th November 2020.

The music of Robert Fox has undoubtably changed over the years, from
his early Vangelis style of symphonic electronic music through his
darker soundtracks to his recent more laid back “New Age” offerings.
What cannot be denied is Robert Fox’s adherence to his own style, to
his own personal musical ‘vision’. Whether one buys into that or not,
there can be no denying that Robert Fox retains a lofty position in
the echelons of the UK electronic music scene because of both his
longevity and the continued quality of his music.

Like his occasional musical collaborator, AD Music stablemate and Code
Indigo cohort David Wright, Robert Fox remains a relevant force in the
evolving musical scene because he has stayed true to his musical style
and his personal musical beliefs.

‘House of Chimes’ is a brand new studio album, an album that Robert
himself would probably tell you was something of a surprise, something
he really wasn’t expecting – wasn’t his 2019 release ‘Phoenix Rising’
his swan song? And yet, here we are, deep into 2020 and Robert Fox
still has something relevant to say!

Let us be clear…’House of Chimes’ is a very deep, dare we say, “dark”
album…it is not your usual Robert Fox fare. It’s a far cry from
‘Asfafa’ or ‘Blue Mountains’…it has a dark intensity which takes a few
listens to get into. But, if you’re prepared to give it a few listens
you will discover a very rewarding experience.

The usual Robert Fox ‘big chords’ are in evidence, but for the most
part everything is at a regal pace, unhurried and punctuated regularly
with treated instrumental vocal refrains that are both thought
provoking and evocative. The music drifts but it drifts with a purpose
that becomes more apparent with each new listen.

A couple of tracks hark back to Code Indigo days, highlighting catchy
percussive rhythms – the excellent ‘Devil’s Puzzle’ (check out the
video) and the catchy base line and accompaniment on ‘Dark Mirror’.

This is an album that some may feel will resonate with the times, as
epitomised by track 5 ‘Lockdown’. It is technically, probably, the
best Robert Fox album to date with exceptionally high production
values and we believe time will show as his most involving and most creative.

66927 Fang, Forrest - Book of Wanderers

The notes of a luminous piano trace a zigzagging appearance that runs
in an iridescent breeze of sibylline colors. It's like hearing Philip
Glass' repetitive piano. This opening seems to reflect on its future
to finally undertake a modern dance choreography with a staging drawn
from the echoes of the piano and its intoxicating notes which
literally fly by alternating touches briskly. The flow is thus
accentuated like in an avant-garde ballet. Bass pulsations second the
pace of the piano which zigzags madly in the slow floating
orchestrations. An Atom on a Long Chain carries its music admirably in
relation to its title, when Forrest Fang undertakes a 3rd rhythm
structure which slightly slows the pace in silky orchestrations. A
very good title which undoubtedly initiates the most beautiful album
of the Sino-American musician to date. When I really want to get off
the hook, I often turn to the music of Forrest Fang. His predominantly
acoustic a m bient tribal style, the synths are weavers of
atmospheres, has no equal in bringing us towards musical panoramas
that we easily create on the paths of his sometimes convoluted music
and sometimes turned towards progressive New Age. THE BOOK OF
WANDERERS is a splendid album with strong moments of intensity which
are comforted through peaceful ambient landscapes filled of wisdom.
Like with Song of the Wanderer which is a great tribal ballad animated
by gamelan percussions, creating a herd of bells supported by a piano
with a subdued tone. Winds of mist surround the rhythm with an
appearance of sunburnt silk. You hear voices that prove you are right
and give an enigmatic lightness to Song of the Wanderer. Tale of the
Egret makes the strings of an acoustic instrument murmur which unties
the moods by creating an illusion of tribal celebration. Robert Rich's
flute reigns over the first part of this title inviting for a
spiritual trance while a zither bewitches our momentary submission in
a stunning title which best explains the ambient tribal expression.
Astir offers good melodious music with a union of piano to a flotilla
of violins in order to make the trees of this forest crying with the
colors and breaths of iron oxide. Atlantis lives in an intense sound
broth. A moving decor to which are grafted different sound elements
that surround the melody plucked by an acoustic guitar. Its panorama
is made up of stringed instruments, orchestral layers, violins with
waltzing wings, ocher breezes and the murmurs of the wood fairies.
This circular aria draws a shadow, dancing in an aerial dive which is
the enchanting heart of this intense fight between melody and its
contrasting elements.
Breezes of tranquility are thundering powerful tribal percussions,
strongly supported by clicking of fires in an overheated ambience. In
a very Vangelis ambience, Elephant Steps takes us out of this long
phase of atmospheres with a crazy rhythm. Knocks and various clay
percussions r efuse any rhythmic coordination in this tribal trance
where cries are heard. A wall of shouts, forging a choir with
murderous rioting intensity. A title of incredible intensity that made
my Totems tremble. Speaking of Vangelis, Chasing Stars is a superb
electronic melody which intoxicates us with its carousel of moiré
arpeggios which goes up and down under a sky lit by its thousands of
stationary prisms. From the Hollows is a dark ambient track with a
texture of grainy winds blowing on chimes abandoned in the deserts of
the future. The title has a high content of melancholy that manages at
times to lead us into sordid ambiences where musicians strum stringed
instruments without succeeding in sticking something tangible. There
is this piano… but it's far away and you can feel its disinterested
pianist. I read somewhere that From the Hollows was composed for Brian
Eno's birthday. It looks like him, but I find that there is a lot of
life, material and texture to ignore the beauties hi d den in this
title. Water Pod is another cheerful and catchy short tune with a
festive folk approach. There is some Sensitive Chaos in this title,
but in more tribal pagan, and these nice intoxicating tinkles of
Gamelan percussions and the zither. Kepler's Return ends this other
brilliant Forrest Fang album with a dense atmospheric mosaic filled
with drone buzzing. Our ears perceive the presence of this strange
choir which has furnished the various walls with the textures of Dark
Ambient scattered throughout THE BOOK OF WANDERERS. Built around the
residue of chords stretched to the maximum and powdery and dark
orchestrations, these walls are the fortresses of an album which
offers all its possibilities in order to trap us!
Why sulk his pleasure? Forrest Fang and his music are in a class of
their own. Magical, mystical, ethnic and folkloric, THE BOOK OF
WANDERERS 'music is a huge atmospheric canvas where it takes us
through different stories that all display a high level of profes
sionalism. A superb album, powerful, intense and without weaknesses
where illusion and disillusion amazes and surprises.

SHIPPING:
Due to the fact that we use a special shipping service that provides
the shipping of parcels etc we don't have to adjust the shipping prices
at this moment. One of the reasons is that because of you our costumers
we can keep these prices so low. With over 1500 parcels shipped last year
we can stay in the lowest shipping prices!
I am glad we are one of the few suppliers of EM that did not have to raise
their shipping prices. So for the 4rth year in a row they stay the same!!
