Two great ‘Contemporary Classical’ albums:
Christoph Berg‘s ‘Conversations’, released on the Sonic Pieces label.
Jeffrey Roden‘s Next Level Minimalism on volume 2 of “Threads of a Prayer”
Leandro Fresco and Rafael Anton Irisarri work together from Argentina and Washington – Steve Pacheco, from Los Angeles, publishes his album on a Belgian label – and Italian composer Lorenzo Montanà has his first American release on Projekt Records.
Anyone fancy a 1000 EUR download? Check this Olan Mill release…
The recent Anjou and Hotel Neon releases are considerably more affordable, though…
Two duo’s reflecting on each others work: Orphax / Machinefabriek and Stijn Hüwels / Danny Clay.
And some ‘smoke columns’ by Federico Mosconi as an encore!

Three releases from the Cryo Chamber label, bringing you deep ‘dark ambient’ soundscapes:
Dronny Darko, Phonothek and Dead Melodies “bringing the sound of the old world to life as it shines light on the new and dying one.”
“Zen does not follow the routine of reasoning, and does not mind contradicting itself or being inconsistent.”
Albums by Fabio Perletta, Simon Fisher Turner and Mayforest.
The moment I heard Rami Malek whisper “Mind awake, body asleep” (Mr Robot, series 2) I knew this would be the inspiration for a new mix.
A mix about half-sleep, lucid dreaming impressions… ungraspable images… and about “letting go”.
After all, Mr. Robot’s tagline was “Control is an Illusion”.
This mix was created for – and is co-hosted on – Headphone Commute.
In this May edition of DreamScenes, you can expect a bit of contemporary classical, a bit of piano, a bit of jazz , some drones and (of course) some ambient soundscapes too, to bring you a small hour of quiet (when needed).
