SPECIAL GUEST: GLEN DARCEY
… THERE’S A NEW SYNTH COMING!
On our very first episode of The Lab, we’re proud to present a very Special Guest:
Glen Darcey – former Vice President of Product Management ARTURIA is here!
Are you ready for a serious Journey?
“Dark Fader” is a journey into Dark Ambient music, not particularly dinner music …. no. If you’re looking for that please search for something more light to accompany you tonite. But if you’re interested in serious matters, why don’t you dive into this episode and explore the releases and labels.
Yesterday a 39C (102.2F) on the display. No studio time then. This morning I was able to record the new mix for Spacemusic 11.12 – Do not ask me how I did it, it’s very difficult to focus under these conditions. There’s a lot of Zennnnnn involved here 🙂
Of course there’s an AC in the house. There’s three! But the only AC that keeps the bills within the affordable range, is the Inverter AC in the bedroom. So I improvised a bit. The other AC in the studio is not cooling well, absorbs way too much electricity and it makes a lot of noise. It has to be removed and changed for a new Inverter type.
I’ve asked my agent, and she’s asking the landlords. If the Landlords say ‘No’ the consequences will be not so good. It might even mean that I will need to leave this house. But if we have a deal, I will stay at least another year! I even offered to contribute in finance for a new AC. Come on! Say Yes!
Spacemusic 11.12 release date? I hope within a couple of days but unfortunately I can’t promise this time. Shows are produced on the main computer, standing in the studio. The weather is having a great effect on everything. Even the Cypriots are surprised about these high temperatures during this time of the year.
Back in Cyprus after my flight to NL – inspired by the flight above the clouds – sunrise, having breakfast, hot Earl Grey tea and the lovely cabin crew of Transavia serving us at 39,000 ft. This is your Flight Control: beware ” Skybird ” is a total < w i d e a n g l e > sound experience and includes significant amounts of the (((sub))) frequency range. Play at high volume at your own risk
The other day I was having my first snorkel session in the Eastern Mediterranean, together with my camera 🙂 We had a real good time! Here’s the frame freezes that I made to offer a preview of what you can expect later in June on Ambient Zone TV.
The guys at Viking Divers in Oroklini were kind enough to introduce me to the latest equipment: mask, snorkel and a pair of fins. This last category is still a bit strange and will demand a lot of practise.
Just before I left for my trip to The Netherlands, I felt the urge to line up a couple of super tracks and crazy soundscapes for a new episode of Spacemusic. I remembered a few albums that were sent to me more than 10 years ago and started listening and mixing … a bit of Magic there!
Great news everyone! We are proud to announce that we now have two brand new workshops planned for this Summer. One in the Ambient Zone and one in collaboration with the Sound University Europe. You can find all information below and via the provided links. Have fun reading about it and hopefully see you guys soon!
Today’s show guides you through the ambient/electronic/acoustic landscape ….seen from a distance: “Sketches” is about images, sounds, memories and emotions. Music as a way of illustrating the way we evolve. Who are we? Where are we? What’s the next step about?
