Hi All

We had a fantastic E-Live yesterday with some very emotional moments.
3 great different concerts with all their own styles and strengths.
Cosmic Ground is bare Sequencing to the bone.
I love this kind of minimal Sequencer stuff, not for hours long but these 75 minutes where great
Dirk-Jan knows his modular to perfection!!
A few great foto's from Hans Gaarkeuken

VOLT was fantastic, with great video images to company them !!
A first on E-Live was the 3D images that VOLT showed during the show.
As they had only 200 3D glass some hat to miss it (I was one of them)
but I heard from people it was quite a trip :-)

And then LOOM.
They where awesome. With many very special emotional moments in the set.
One was where a little Jerome (a picture on the backdrop!) lurked over his fathers synths
during rehearsals and the now playing adult Jerome on the side!!
And Johannes at the Grand Piano with a picture of the 3 TD musicians of that eara
behind him!! Boy that was really touching.
And here are some photo shoots, reviews etc!!

And in the above rooms we had Brueckner and Betzler with a FAT set of energetic EM.
And the guys of Modulab. Where w ehave some cool video's of.
Check if you are on Facebook the pages of the participants regularly or
otherwise I will have more links next week!!
Thanks for all the photo's and attention!!
And again a big thanks to all who helped me through he day,  A special thanks this year
to Erik who supported Brueckner and Betzler during the day and Stephan Whitlan
who was my technical right hand in the main hall, I now really had more time for other things :-)

21709 Space Megalithe - Abstract Dimensions

French duo Space Megalithe, comprised of Jean-Claude Gil & Christophe
Barbier, debuted during November 2014 with their self-released "Psyché
Energy" CD. One year later they participated in Belgium
(Heusden-Zolder) on B-Wave festival's main stage with names such as
Robert Rich, Radio Massacre International and The Tower Free. A quite
good opportunity to reveal their talents. Btw, a nearly 70-minute long
recording from their performance is available in digital formats
through Space Megalithe's Bandcamp site. Although I have followed all
these significant events, it was Space Megalithe's second album
"Abstract Dimension", which has really triggered my interest in this
emerging project. So I can't forget to send kudos to kindred soul
Sonic-Hypnosis for his hint!!! "Abstract Dimension" was released
during January 2016, again as a glass mastered self release packaged
in a traditional jewel case with 4-panel front cover insert. Another
French sound s caper (and anthropologist) Boris Lelong is credited for
his participation on the album's art concept.

Nearly 10 minutes long title composition "Abstract Dimension" unfolds
this stellar odyssey with grandiosely expansive washes, perpetually
drifting and ebbing, and intriguingly illuminated by intangibly
gossamer clinks, lushly swirling fragments and enigmatically immersing
biotic undercurrents. A top-notch intro, messieurs!!! Then follows a
live, 11-minute version of "Psyché Energy", the title track from Space
Megalithe's debut album. Cybernetic shimmerings are soon permeated by
translucent sequences painting delicately elevated rhythms,
exquisitely polished and euphorically sharp, while soothing tides of
atmozones are persistently guarding above. Magnifique!!! So no wonder
I didn't even notice a seamless transition to "Crystal Landscape 1",
which inconspicuously moves into gorgeously nuanced panoramic vistas.
A warmly encircling sonic postcard! "Crystal Landscape 2" clandes
tinely sneaks in, but the center stage is soon stolen by gently
pulsing beats, meticulously bridging glistening cybernetic mesmerism
with fascinatingly yearning undulations. Awesome bundle, bravo,
Jean-Claude & Christophe!!! "Temple Of Andromeda" delves deeply into
ambiguously colored terrains, where perplexingly labyrinthine drones
precisely coalesce with variety of ear-tickling, industrial-infused
traceries, organic glimpses and eerie curtains. Abstract soundforging
at its finest!!! "Betelgueuse Station B" keeps at the beginning safely
on the bizarre path, but over the course the track slowly
metamorphoses into spectacularly immense spacefields, stunningly
panoptic, yet enthrallingly piquant. The closing 3 minutes are
masterfully magnified by crystalline sequencer meridians. A truly
phenomenal piece clocking to 11-minute mark and an exuberantly
creative pinnacle so far! Merci beaucoup!!! The next piece, "Waves",
with 6 and a half minutes the shortest one on "Abstract Dimension", g
lides through balmily poetic vastness, where profoundly evocative
meanders magnificently commingle with engrossingly ephemeral
stillness. A genuine tranquilizer! "Stone Alignment", a 12-plus
minutes long composition closes this amazing sonic voyage with
expanding tides coupled with transient field recordings, both balsamic
and spectral, unlocking the gates of jaw-droppingly monumental
horizons. These spellbinding layers are delightfully counterpointed
with evanescent trimmings of primordial artifacts, while remotely
mesmerizing (heart)beat surreptitiously percolates through. A very
strong finale indeed!

77-minute "Abstract Dimension" is a highly accomplished recording by
this gifted duo, fully revealing their ingenious insignias, when
sophisticatedly amalgamating North-American flavored atmospheric
soundscaping with unpredictable Berlin School ingredients. Space
Megalithe is a really big revelation from France, no question about
that!!! And not only "Abstract Dimension", bu t also their first album
"Psyché Energy" is highly recommended!!! And even if still newcomers,
deep respect to Jean-Claude & Christophe for not being afraid of
self-releasing their music on a glass mastered format. It's a quite
rare move these days. So keep on creating, guys, I certainly stay
tuned for all your future spatial installments! Once again, a big
round of applause to Space Megalithe!!!

22324 Erbe, Stefan - Selectronique Debussy

At the Electronic Circus 2016 in Detmold, I met again the always
friendly and highly electronic music supporting Stefan Erbe. As a fan
of his music, I had to get this CD. And what a wonderful CD is it. I
played it 2 times in a row the first time driving home the next day
from the Circus.

Musically I can ensure you that it is not only an electronic
interpretation of Claude Debussy work. As a classical trained musician
I was already familiar with Debussy's work. Stefan added his very own
personal electronic view on the music. He added the electronic
elements in the notes, between the notes and outside of the notes, and
that is what I call craftmanship. But before I write a whole prosa on
this wonderful album, I suggest that you, the listener, have a listen
yourself. It is a perfect album to listen coming home after a busy day at work.

46609 Mäläskä - Uncle Jims Cidney Factory

A muffled explosion which is transformed into a long guttural humming,
a voice behind a wooden curtain which mumbles words of which the
echoes form some jerky lines of words and riffs of an electric
six-strings which roll in tight loops. It's this sound decoration
which introduces the hypnotic psychedelic ballad of "The Intergalactic
Corridor B3-B4". Delicate electronic effects accompany these riffs
which flow now into a harmonious approach which we can easily compared
with the play of Manuel Gottsching's guitar. In fact, other guitar
chords are joining the structure in order to deepen the melodious play
of Petter Janse, while a bass line spits its pulsations which resound
more and more. And always this synth which throws music filters loaded
of toxic colors and which encircle the spheroidal ballet of "The
Intergalactic Corridor B3-B4" which little by little run away towards
"Nitro's Neurosoup Concoction". You like these titles? You understa n
d anything here? They are also unusual as the music of Mäläskä, the
last project of Remy which was born in spring 2016 around improvised
sessions with the guitarist Petter Janse. In a universe which plunges
us into the psychedelic acid of the Ohr years, “Uncle Jim's Cidney
Factory” is of a breathtaking boldness. Boldness because Remy and
Petter Janse revisit a style that several people considered so
weakened as not necessary with an approach where the genres of Ashra
and Amon Düül leak out in a climate of modernity. If at times we
downright have the impression to dive into this psychedelic universe
without contrasts of the 70's, this musical tale inspired by college
drop outs of Michigan embrace the perfumes of contemporary from
Schulze or a Brian Eno darker and darker than ever. Built around a
dozen hours of improvised sessions, as in the nice time, the essence
of “Uncle Jim's Cidney Factory” is almost pure because the duet left
it as it stands during the final mixing. From where i ts unbearable
and totally inexplicable charm.
Ringings and effects of bass, one would say the slow movements of a
submarine stuck in a underwater storm, get "Nitro's Neurosoup
Concoction" from the somnambulistic claws of "The Intergalactic
Corridor B3-B4". The movement is more agitated with good electronic
percussions which bribe the electronic universe sculptured on
iridescent hoops and on faded voices that only the imagination can
decode. The rhythm is lively, as these beautiful technoïd ritornellos
of Manuel Gottsching. A parallel that we just can't ignore, because
the essence of Ashra founder is really omnipresent in the play of
Petter Janse. Voices of spectres bicker over the loops of rhythms
while a sequencer unstitches a fast and jerky line. The rhythm is
divided into 3 very different parts where the techno and the dance
take the stake over an electronic structure which in the end will
bring "Nitro's Neurosoup Concoction" towards the quiet and the dark
ambient "Fratman Gl ancy & The Explorer Society". Here, the breaths
are hollow and the layers of church organ are very disturbing if we
are afraid of the dark moods. We float between Schulze and Eno here
due to the apathetic of the atmospheres which will scatter some lost
chords which will structure the base of the rhythm as sneaky than a
dance of a big pelican on acid of "Mr. Natural Amusement Park at 6
a.m.". I adore this title and the first impression which comes to my
mind is this music of Matthias Thurow in his insurmountable
Cornucopia. But I am not at the end of my surprises! "The Disputable
Beauty of Miss V.Z." is going to throw you of the wall with its very
aggressive rock where atmospheres of a very contemporary Klaus Schulze
are floating, in particular at the level of the synth. Kind of the XYZ
years. It's doubtless one of the most intelligent electronic rock that
I heard. The balance between the very energetic rhythm, suspended by a
creative blend between the percussions and the oscillatin g pulsations
of the bass sequences, and the effects of synth, of which the elastic
solos are like electronic lassoes which want to snatch up time, is a
real delight for the lovers of music and of sounds. "The Sweet Turned
Sour" presents us a heavy introduction of nebulous ambiences with
distant hollow breezes which make hatch a delicate string of gleaming
sequences. The keys cavort in a mesmerizing minimalist approach and
eventually construct a delicate melody which is weaver of earworm. We
would think to be in the territories of Remy's masterpiece, Exhibition
of Dreams, but with even more disturbing effects. If some strange
knockings, one would say riffs which sneeze, stain the charms of "The
Sweet Turned Sour", the guitar of Petter Janse reorientates its beauty
with thin ethereal lines and sighing tears while the title climbs more
and more the tops of intensity. And little by little, the discord
arises from this amplitude which encloses this fascinating and
obsessing ascent of "Th e Sweet Turned Sour".
“Uncle Jim's Cidney Factory” is part of those albums that nobody
expected and which leaves definitively a mark. The balance between the
cosmic rhythm, the approach of techno dance and the floating
atmospheres is perfect and makes the album flourishes between our ears
like a suite of presents all so beautiful one of the others. Mäläskä;
a name to be held and “Uncle Jim's Cidney Factory” is an album which
is necessary to possess and to listen to, if possible but not
essential, with a good pair of earphones to facilitate this
magnificent journey between the times of a music which never seems to
be in lack of resources... As long as there are artists like Remy, and
there are, EM is in good hands. Just needs to sharpen our ears!
