[Groove] E-News 1264 4th December 2021

HELLO 2022 - 30 December 2021.

Electronic music, the Planetarium Bochum will open on 30 December 2021. There is HELLO 2022, the popular pre-New Year's Eve concert of schallwende e.V. 2021

We are planning to play 2 BIG sets, a first one presenting each musician and a second set where all 3 will join in each others music!!

In 2020 Ron Boots with Ian Boddy and Harald Grosskopf had planned a special "Phase 3 concert" live for you. But due to Covid this never took place :-(

Now we will have a special concert on the .0th of December!! But without Ian Boddy. Because of Brexit and Corona, it will be bad for him to get out of the UK.

But Harald and me found a great artist to join us on this evening. Steve Baltes will join us on stage and we have planned a scpecial evening for you all. You can be curious, because the three of them are playing together on a stage for the first time.

"We're going to make the planetarium rock!"

Tickets sold for Phase 3!! The old tickets remain valid, as promised.

You can book new ones as usual on the planetarium website:

At the moment the concert is not yet listed there. Actually, the PlaBO only wants to be up-to-date for the next 14 days. – Just check from time to time if there is an update!

The start time for the concert was scheduled for 8 pm. But we expect to be ready at 8.30/9.00 the sound check should also perfect the whole thing. So: Maybe it starts a little later. With Corona, that's also such a thing. In the planetarium, the 2G rule now applies.

What will be valid on 30/12 and how many visitors will be allowed in will depend on the covid development and the regulations that politicians will agree on. If something changes, I will sign up by newsletter!

Steve Baltes will join us on stage.


(German Text) HELLO 2022,

Elektronische Musik öffnet sich das Planetarium Bochum am 30. Dezember 2021.
Dort gibt es HELLO 2022, das beliebte Vorsilvesterkonzert des schallwende e.V.

Ron Boots und Harald Grosskopf möchte dann endlich die ursprüngliches „Phase 3-Konzert“ für euch live spielen. Der ursprüngliche Mistreiter Ian Boddy ist nicht mit dabei. Wegen Brexit und Corona wird es schlecht für ihn sein, aus Großbritannien herauszukommen.

Aber wir haben ein super musiker als ersatz Steve Baltes.
Du darfst gespannt sein, die Drei spielen ja zum ersten Mal zusammen auf einer Bühne.
„Wir bringen das Planetarium zum Rocken!“

Wir plannen 2 sets die jeweils die musiker selber vorstellen werden aber der zweite set wird eine cooperation von den 3 musikern!! Ein Unikat!

Die alten Eintrittskarten behalten ihre Gültigkeit, wie versprochen.
Neue buchen kannst Du ganz normal auf der Planetariumswebseite:

Zur Zeit ist das Konzert dort noch nicht gelistet. Eigentlich will das PlaBO immer nur für die nächsten 14 Tage aktuell sein. – Einfach ab und zu mal nachschauen, ob es da eine Aktualisierung gibt! Die Anfangszeit für das Konzert war für 20 Uhr geplant. Es könnte allerdings Zeitprobleme beim Aufbau durch die Musiker geben; ein Soundcheck soll ja auch das Ganze perfektionieren. Also: Vielleicht beginnt’s ein wenig später.

Mit Corona ist das ja auch so eine Sache. Im Planetarium gilt jetzt die 2G-Regel. Was am 30. 12. gültig sein wird und wie viele Besucher hinein gelassen werden dürfen, hängt von der Covid-Entwicklung und den Vorschriften ab, auf die sich die Politiker einigen werden.
Wenn sich da etwas ändert, werde ich mich per Newsletter melden!

Raumzeit Festival - The album for the festival with all 20 artists.

Now Available here. Download Link / https://empulsiv.bandcamp.com/releases

In three editions, 19 other musicians, bands and artists where invited to play their music in special places and to film themselves. The result is an unusual form of presentation in very special and extraordinary places.

After the great success of the series, all musicians have decided to make parts of their music available for a sampler. All in all, more than 3 hours of music have come together, which is not only to be understood as a calling card of the artists, but also fulfills a charitable purpose.

In the time of the second online edition, many people in the middle of Germany were hit by the flood disaster. Stefan Erbe, who himself lives in this region, had the idea to donate donations from the audience of issues 2 and 3, as well as the proceeds of the Raumzeit album.

Before Christmas, the participants will decide where the sum will be donated. That's why we ask you: Be there with 5 euros and choose an additional amount before the download, which you want to give for this good thing. Every euro helps for people who have lost everything.
Schallwelle Elections 2021
Dear friends of electronic music,

There we go! Just in time for 1 December, we will publish the current status of the candidate lists, which our returning officer Alfred has compiled with great diligence.

Here they are.
Best Artist/Musician National: http://www.schallwen.de/news/artist_nat.html
Best International Artist/Musician: http://www.schallwen.de/news/artist_int.html
Best Album National: http://www.schallwen.de/news/album_nat.html
Best Album International: http://www.schallwen.de/news/album_int.html

There was a jury decision to separate categories again according to "national" and "international". This means for the artists: more prizes and better chances to get one of the prizes and nominations, and for you listeners and voters on the Internet that you can also award more votes.

23315 Wave Walkers - Kronos 21

Danger in Dream had made a big hit with the album Entrance in 2001. The particularity of this album was the role of the sequencer and its rhythmic evolutions through a musical fresco strongly inspired by Tangerine Dream of the Schmoelling years. Well, here is Wave Walkers and its KRONOS21, an excellent album which sounds indeed like this same Tangerine Dream without necessarily copying it. Like DiD in fact! Wave Walkers is a project of two Belgian musicians Jurgen Vitrier and Germain Ghys and KRONOS 21 is a first album that is available on manufactured CD as well as in downloadable format. It's almost 56 minutes of music that we eat of our ears with a constant amazement.

A wave of sounds, like in the opening of the debut album of Danger in Dream, surges towards our ears to let us hear pensive arpeggios in a futuristic industrial vision. Briefer, other waves swirl around like the eye of a lighthouse in an opening where the pensive s tate rubs shoulders with the alert one. This indecision exceeds 4 minutes when these caramelize-toned arpeggios make resound their timbres over the metronomic beat of one of these sequenced arpeggios. This stoic minimalist movement is supported by an intense atmosphere from which escapes a wavering line around the 6th minute. One struggles to keep up with this line as it rolls along with good velocity, rising and falling like a drunken centipede. It rolls along at high speed until a thunder of percussive elements hits the listener, who is absorbed in the sequencer's play. Intense, cacophonous but within the limits of acceptability, Kronos21 Part 1 offers a dysfunctional rhythmic framework where that chord left free since its opening still tinkles. The first real metamorphosis takes place around the 9th minute when the rhythm deviates to another source of the sequencer and the synth releases an orchestral haze, bringing the music into the flavors of the Dream during the 80-81 tour. T he rhythm is heavy and rolls in a Berlin School style camouflaged by a musical intensity that reaches those moments of Tangerine Dream's madness in concert. It's built with two intersecting sequencer structures, a bass-sequencer line and those huge percussions cut into the unknown. Keyboard riffs and synth pads add a harmonious dimension, while the synth breaks away from this grip to deliver some great hybrid-toned solos. Still maintaining this musical intensity, Kronos21 Part 1 uses its 14th minute to make a metamorphosis that is more tangible this time by offering a rhythm consisting of leaps and their elastic jumps on a frantic sequencer. Again, it sounds like the Dream without being the Dream. And unlike Danger in Dream, Jurgen Vitrier and Germain Ghys multiply synth solos in a corrosive atmosphere. And what about the sequencer! On a very catchy structure for the feet and stimulating for the neurons, WW manages to extract adjacent rhythm phases as well as to make its jumping ke y s dribbling while Kronos21 Part 1 goes towards its finale, always topped with very good synth solos, which turns into a big aggressive electronic rock. 26 minutes of pure pleasure!

Less turbulent, Kronos21 Part 2 is still very attractive, like very lively. Let's say that this part of KRONOS21 is more homogeneous. Its intro is of heavy haze where a chord tinkles in jets of percussive elements that the Dream exposed during its shows in the Schmoelling years. All musical with a melodious synth, this long title that flirts with the 30 minutes begins with class and melody in elements that stick more to the mythical German trio here than on the first title. In particular the tone of the synth which weaves magnificent melodious solos, as well as a beautiful orchestral haze. The first rhythm structure is dreamy, but heavy and slow with its suite of a jumping key while enchanting us in a hypnotic pattern. This series continues to dribble along and pick up the pace to resume its ini tial role up until the 8th minute. A fluty mellotron exorcises the moods some 20 seconds later. The resonant chords extend a chthonian aura that a stream of suspended sequences accompanies in an undulating choreography. A light fight between synth and mellotron, before a good electronic rock attracts Kronos21 Part 2 for a second crazy ride surrounded by vocal and psybient effects. A rock steady over a period of more than 20 minutes with a suspended phase where the electronic drums do a good job here while the synth makes solos sing while depositing beautiful chloroformed layers. The rhythm slows down the pace around the 16th minute with its suspended elements. This more stationary phase makes us hear other magnificent synth solos before getting back into a living electronic rock always with these strange voice effects, these solos, these percussive elements slamming like two giant cymbals, this mythical haze and finally a superb guitar solo performed by Jens Ambrosch.

Wow! The beauty of this album is its capacity to reproduce in studio the same musical ambiences that Tangerine Dream gave off during their concerts. The dynamics, the fluidity in the phase changes, the sequencer play, the excellent synth solos and many other elements arrive in a seductive capacity that brings the music to another level. In short, a splendid album of Wave Walkers, hoping not to have to wait 20 years before the next one arrives. Remember Danger in Dream!
