Album der Woche #18 – 2018 – ”Kymatica” by Tabo Tago

Das Album der Woche 18 präsentiert von Modul303. Sendezeiten: 29.4. 8-9 Uhr und 15-16 Uhr.


Kymatica is a journey back in time with one foot firmly in the future. To Berlin-based trio TaboTago, the years between Tangerine Dream’s monolithic album “Zeit” in 1972 and the controversial fusion experiment “Cyclone” towards the end of the decade still provide plenty of inspiration. Over the course of many sessions and private concerts in a basement on Taborstraße they manage to crack the code which allowed Tangerine Dream to build epic and complex sound worlds while using synthesizers and early electronic equipment. Starting out as a cover band, it wasn’t long before the band applyied their secret knowledge to the six pieces of original material on debut album “Kymatica”.

In the spirit of the originals from the 70s and performed on current digital gear as well as on analoge synthesizers, these up to 11-minute long tracks occasionally sound like undiscovered Froese recordings from the vaults. Partly, this impression can be attributed to the fact that, similar to the techniques used by most krautrock bands at the time, all of the tracks were edited from live studio sessions, using no overdubs and very little post production. The band also regarded it vital to replicate the deep and warm sound of Tangerine Dream’s 70s productions. To this end, using specialised software, they created a ‘sonic fingerprint’ of the classics and then applied this equaliser setting to their own music.

Album der Woche #17 – 2018 – ” Vive Somnium ” by IcingWolf

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.

Das ganze Album bekommt ihr übrigens hier.

SOUNDTAG SPECIAL #16-2018 – “The World of DIN…feat. Ian Boddy and Friends”

Soundtag special 22.4.18 4-7 PM cest with your Host Wolf Red

“The World of DIN…feat. Ian Boddy and Friends”

Ian Boddy
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.

Album der Woche #14 – 2018 – “Axial” by Harald Nies

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.

Album der Woche #13-2018 – “Beyond the Horizon” by Romerium & Martin Neuhold

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.
