Mit diesem Album hat sich IcingWolf den Titel als beste Neuentdeckung des vergangenen Jahres anläßlich der Verleihung das Schallwelle Awards gesichert.
Wer ist aber wiederum IcingWolf? ich habe mal im Rudel nachgefragt:
Einstieg war im März 2011, nachdem einige Träume gelebt waren in ein Traum noch mit Leben gefüllt werden wollte. Die Initialzündung erfolgte nach der ultimativen Chart Show “Die besten SynthiePop Hits”. Im Mai 2011 der erste Synthesizer, August des gleichen Jahres folgte schon der zweite. Erste Veröffentlichung auf “Calling the Ghosts Music”. Im September 2017 erschien “ViveSomnium” und der Nachfolger “Ad Somnia” erschien im Dezember 2017. Im Moment ist ein neues Album in Arbeit, das noch vor dem Winter veröffentlicht werden soll.
IcingWolf ist nicht nur alleine Unterwegs, es gibt auch einige Cooperationsprojekte unter anderem mit CrashDumpFile und Möbius.

“The World of DIN…feat. Ian Boddy and Friends”
Composer, sound designer, DiN ambient music label owner
& analogue synth aficionado
Ian Boddy first got into composing music in the late 70’s in Newcastle upon Tyne whilst studying for a degree in Biochemistry. Having fallen in love with the sound-worlds of German electronic bands such as Tangerine Dream, he came across an arts centre that housed a studio filled with reel-to-reel tape machines and analogue synthesisers. Boddy taught himself how to use this equipment through a process of experimentation, thus began a long and successful music career.
Specialising in ambient and electronic music, Boddy has three main strands to his musical activities which are run under the umbrella of his own company, Something Else Music Limited.

Axial heißt das neue 2018er Studioalbum von Harald Nies. Nach zwei Jahren Pause überrascht er ein weiteres Mal mit einem bekannt Neuem und einem wieder frischen Sound. Fließende Passagen, Spacerock und verträumte Elektronik wechseln sich gekonnt ab. Die Magie steckt zwischen den Zeilen: Haralds Musik besitzt einen unnachahmlichen Flow, den er wie kaum ein anderer beherrscht. Da, wo es sein soll, bringt er seine E-Gitarre unter. Nicht zu viel, nicht zu wenig. Axial läuft an einem Stück durch. Keine Unterbrechung, keine Pausen. So soll es sein. Einfach genießen.
Das gaze Album bekommst Du hier.

What begun as the February Album Writing Month improvisation challenge has turn out to a complete Album.
This collaboration invitation would be even more interesting if some of you would join me and add YOUR improvisation to my improvisation, to start some kind of musical dialogue, Martin wrote.
The improvisations Martin made for this collaboration touched me every time so every time I played my improvisations as a sort of answer and completion ( in my eyes) of his work.
His work shows often deep emotion and deep emotion is that what I like in my music.
So it was not so difficult to anticipate with his work.
I’ve mixed all his tracks together with my work so that it sounds at his best, and I’m very happy with the results…
Over the years I more and more realized that improvisation is the kind of music that is the most fun to make and to listen to.
It‘s music that comes right out of the moment, captures the feelings of the musician and brings them across to the audience.
So I asked myself if it was possible to improvise together, even if you were not in the same room.
The result was the Dialogue project, where I asked musicians to „answer“ to my improvisations with their improvisations.
When I heard the first „answers“ by Romerium I instantly felt that they were something special.
They somehow vibrated in the same frequency and deepened the music.
So I am very happy that all of our collaborations are collected here on this album.
If you like this, I invite look out for other reworks which will be released on the Submarine Broadcasting Corporation Netlabel and maybe some other places really soon.
My heartfelt thanks go out to you, the listener, and to Romerium for this great collaboration.

A truly unusual project. Two musicians, Thomas Lemmer and Christoph Sebastian Pabst, 700 km apart, one in Osnabrück, the other in the surrounding area of Munich, met in 2004 in Marburg and then lost sight of each other. Their new work, a unique combination of two different and yet perfectly harmonizing worlds, is a beautiful example of how the Internet blurs borders and can bring musicians together even across great distances!
On 9th March 2018 Sine Music will be releasing the new EP “Meeresleuchten“ by Thomas Lemmer & Christoph Sebastian Pabst. The EP will be available at all well-known download stores.
Thomas Lemmer has been successfully producing electronic music in the area of Chillout, Ambient and Deep House for many years. Since 2009 he has released 7 albums, 12 singles and is represented on numerous successful compilations. His album AMBITRONIC has been in the top 10 of the DCOC (German Chill Out Charts) for 28 weeks (status 1/2018). He became famous for his unique compositions and his outstanding sound design.
At the end of the 90s, Christoph Sebastian Pabst, alongside two of his friends, produced Ambient and House songs with individual live acts in the Bremen music scene, as well as releases on vinyl in small editions. Once he became a doctor and new father, he found less and less time to make music and only discovered it again in 2014 as a creative balance. While listening to his old tracks he often thought of Thomas, whose newsletter he received on a regular basis and who had meanwhile established himself firmly in the Chillout scene. Without further ado, he sent him his best tracks with the request to use them for favors. Perhaps he could refresh the ideas and arrange them in a contemporary way? The first remix of the song Pastellstrand, which was released on Thomas’ album PURE in 2017, was created with great enthusiasm.
Afterwards many great new ideas arose, an exchange of notes, rhythms and sounds began over the Internet. Floating spheres, organic instruments, wonderful melodies, creative sound design, electronic rhythms and widening effects. The main elements used include a Chinese ruan guitar (Meeresleuchten), the Una Corda (Meeresleuchten [introduction]), an Erhu (Sandwirbeldüne), an electric guitar (Pastellstrand) and a Spanish flamenco guitar (Indigobrandung).
Christoph showed his flair for extraordinary and enthralling melodies. A wonderful combination of great organic and electronic sounds were created. Thomas showed himself in his element with an excellent programming of rhythms and his own floating melodies in an excellent sound design. With his many years of experience in composing, arranging and producing, this successful and fascinating piece of work emerged.
