A night of just plain great ambient music! Two long players, several short players, and all of it outstanding music. Plus a live performance by myself. I had a great time and hope you enjoyed the show as well.
Hope to see you next week!

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 …

What a beautiful evening. We had a wonderful time immersing ourselves in the music of Janne Hanhisuanto. A truly stunning and remarkably diverse set of music, one of my favorite recent programs.
One fascinating factoid – Synastasia was made using SYNA, a hand-built synthesizer of Janne’s own design. In his own words:
SYNA is a 3 year project which ended last autumn. Some 200 meters of wire are inside, along with 169 knobs and pots. I wanted to have controls, you know oscillator type, filters, right at hand without menu diving. Ninety five percent of the components are resistors, capacitors and op amps. It is a thesis work.
Here’s a video of Janne demonstrating SYNA:
And here is tonight’s playlist. Hope to see you next week!

What a concert. Tonight, we had a special feature on the music of Emerald Adrift, which included a nearly hour long live concert by the same artist. All I can say is that we heard some of the most interesting, evocative, and, frankly, kick-ass analog sounds I have heard in quite some time. Thanks to David Herpich for performing for us tonight. It was a real treat.
I hope to see you all next week!
