Auroric Dreams

Some more music I’m listening to while working.  Today’s music is from space music group Auroric Dreams, which includes my friend Tony Gerber, a fantastic musician and extraordinary human being.

This group plays some highly original and lush electronic and guitar based space music.  Sometimes quiet, sometimes energetic, but always spacious.  Give them a listen!

Also, last night is the first time I heard Tony refer to himself as “Gerbtone”.  I couldn’t resist:

Gerbtone

What a privilege I had bringing this music to you.  Tonight we heard an outstanding live concert by Tony Gerber, as well as a broad cross section of the decades of gorgeous music Tony has given us, both solo and in collaboration.  Just wonderful.

Special thanks to Tony for taking time to bring us this concert!  I hope we can do this again soon …

Tony Gerber live on Blue Water Drift Dive March 2nd

Just a friendly reminder …

That’s right.  On March 2nd, I will have the extraordinary privilege of hosting Tony Gerber live in concert on BWDD.

Mark Your Calendar

For those of you who don’t know him, live space music pioneer Tony Gerber has been performing live music in front of audiences and live radio since he was 9 years old. For his space music projects, live and recorded, he mixes a love of electronic music with guitars and native flutes.

In addition to the live concert, I will of course take you on a journey through Tony’s released music, both as a solo artist, as Cypress Rosewood, and as part of the space music group Spacecraft.  This is going to be a very special night indeed.  Don’t miss it!

Friday, March 9, 2018 – Thomas Park Retrospective

thomasparkOn March 9th, I’ll be presenting a special feature on one of the most ground-breaking and prolific ambient artists ever:  Thomas Park.

Entitled The Music Of Thomas Park: 20 Years Of Creativity (A Retrospective), this never-before-heard documentary chronicles Thomas’ amazing odyssey through all forms of electronic music and presents the many ways his music has influenced the genre itself.

You can find Thomas’ music everywhere without even knowing it, as he has released under the artist names Mystified, AutoCad, Mister Vapor, Grid Resistor, Model 201, and many others.  It is not hyperbole to say that Thomas Park is one of the premier ambient artists ever.

Mark Your Calendar

I’m very proud to bring this work to you.  You don’t want to miss this.

See You Then

I hope you to see you at both of these events!  If you tune in, be sure to stop by the chat room and say hello …

Playlist – December 22, 2017

ob12 cleanIt’s always wonderful to celebrate the return of an old friend, and tonight was my opportunity to do that for my beloved Oberheim OB-12.  We had a great time listening to music inspired by the color blue, and chit chatting about hiking in Japan, the evils of internet service providers, Debussy doing Satie, revolving organ bars, and the mysterious Christmas Asparagus.  Don’t ask – you had to be in the chat room at the time to understand that reference.

The night was cold and wet but the music was warm and inviting.  Hope to see you next week!
