Hello 2022

(German Text) HELLO 2022,
Karten immer noch da!!

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!

Und Groove wird ein stand dort haben und alle vorbestellungen haben ein 15% rabat auf alles was vobesteld wird also lass uns wissen was wir mitbringen sollen!!  Bestellen geht bis zum 29ten December!! www.groove.nl

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

Bitte beachten sie die eintritts vorschriften
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!

Dear friends of electronic music,

There we go! The published 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.

The elections have begon! Hope you think of all those great Groove releases!!

Dreamscape Radio show 610 will be online from the 25th of December  This Dreamscape Radio with all the Groove CD-r releases of 2021 for the Schallwelle Elections 
More then 3 hours of music for you during this holiday season. Enjoy!!

You can find Dreamscape here.

Thanks for your time!

gr-323 Awenson - Floating

With “Floating”, French multi-instrumentalist Joël Bernard brings his audience a work of non Berlin School art that isn’t like any of his previous releases. This time around he’s come up with pure spaced-out result (something he had delved into briefly on the 2009-album “Beyond the Galaxies”) fitting in the league of fine electro-ambient explored by Steve Roach, Jonn Serrie, Michael Stearns and alike.

Luminous, smooth drifting dreamscapes make up the 12-minute opener “Tropical Sleep”, followed by celestial winds, subtle sequences and calm textures creating a portal into the harmonic, cosmic outdoors on “Tribal Trip”. The lush “Sacred Riteo” with its static bass line sounds a tad flat and too New Age to my ears, but fortunately Awenson heads in the right direction again on the almost 19-minute “Landscape from Outerspace”, a gentle morphing, weightless and more profound soundscape dressed with subtle guitar strings.

After the brief interlude “ P erle”, cosmic doors open even more beautiful and mesmerizing on “Flowers in Heaven” and “Love Dream”. All in all, “Floating” is a well-accomplished, soft sparkling and overall calm voyage into cosmic ambiences.
Rating: 4 stars out of 5
