I just love sequencer music, and tonight was a great night to immerse myself in it.  I hope you enjoyed the music as much as I did!

dark2For me, this show was something special.  It’s not every day that I take a breath and go deep with the dark ambient genre for an extended period of time.  Tonight we journeyed through the hinterlands of ambience, contemplated the sights and sounds around us, plunged headlong through the valley of the shadow, and emerged refreshed by the experience.

As usual, a fun time was had by all in the chat room, as we discussed the virtues of various California wines, winter in Canada, singing tea pots, pickled garlic, and essential oil aromatherapy.

The night was cold, the hearth was warm, the music was fathomless, and the company was wonderful.  I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Hope to see you next week …

cactusWe had a lovely program tonight to celebrate the advent of December.  Tonight we journeyed deep, diving into the dark soothing pool of ambience with a variety of new music to the program from a collection of great artists.

I was particularly excited to feature an unreleased piece by Sergio de Vega, an artist I’ve loved for some time who recently reached out to me.  Deep and hypnotic music.

As always, we had a lot of fun in the chat room talking about pinball machines, milk shakes, carbon fiber lap steel guitars, espresso, and catching up with old friends.  A great time.

Hope to see you next week!

Image uploaded from iOS (1)I knew that tonight’s program would have excellent music, but I will confess I didn’t fully realize how excellent until hearing it all end to end.  Tonight we focused on the music of Ombient, the great Mike Hunter and his endless fascination with ambient space music.

What a great collection of pieces, including a jaw dropping live set put on by Ombient and Chuck van Zyl at The Gatherings back in May of this year, a recording that benefits The Gatherings Concert Series.

We had a good time discussing the instruments we were hearing, the virtues of various analog sequencers, the joy of pickled garlic, and some of the books we have enjoyed recently.  As always, if you are listening but not chatting you are literally missing out on half the fun.

Anyway, here’s tonight’s playlist.  Be sure to stop by and grab some of this music yourself, and be sure to purchase an album or two to show your love and support for what you heard.

Hope to see you next week …

0010265649_10We had a great show tonight, focusing on the wonderful space music of K.Markov.  Folks in the chat room had a great time talking about the music, about cats playing synthesizers, and the virtues of carbon-fiber electric guitars.

Here are the tracks I played and links to the artist’s albums on Bandcamp where you can get copies of your own.  I highly encourage you to check out his albums; they are very reasonably priced and contain some of the best Berlin school space music I’ve heard.

Hope to see you next week!

rrmor5Twas so cool to be able to do a deep dive on the music of one of my very favorite musicians:  Robert Rich.

We had a great time this evening taking a trip backwards through time with Robert’s music, spanning 35 (!) years of music, as well as chit chatting and goofing off in the chat room.  Every show is fun, but tonight was something special.

This playlist represents some of the best music I’ve heard from Robert over the decades.  However, it represents only a small fraction of the greatness there is to be heard in his catalog.  He has released so many albums, with such exceptional quality, that the only way to really hear him is to spend many days on end with a large number of his albums.  Alas, we have only three hours in my program, so I selected a sample that represents some of my favorite tracks.  Please visit Robert’s web site, and if you’re so inclined, show some love and pick up an album or three.

I hope to see you next week!
