DreamScenes – July 2017

DreamScenes CZ

The first edition of DreamScenes v2.0:

Starting this month, DreamScenes will be broadcast on the Dutch Concertzender Radio channel every second sunday of the month at 20hr (CET).
Every edition can be listened on-demand after the broadcast, from the Concertzender website as well as via Mixcloud.
More details about the Concertzender and the new DreamScenes broadcast [here].

The first radio edition: “Dream the Dark Away…”

With the title taken from (the Abul Mogard remix of) Fovea Hex’s track All Those Signs, this edition somehow feels like a ‘mission statement’ for the new series…

DreamScenes V2.0

DreamScenes CZ

I’m very happy to tell you that from now on the DreamScenes series will be continued as a monthly radio show, broadcast on the  dutch Concertzender radio.
It is scheduled for broadcast on every second sunday of the month at 20.00 hr (CET/CEST = UTC+1/UTC+2) (right before Bob Rusche’s notorious X-Rated radio show).
This means the first editions of DreamScenes V2.0 will be broadcast next week, on July, 9.

But no need to worry if that’s not the time for you tune in to the radio live-stream: Concertzender acknowledges that current audiences often prefer to listen to their favorite shows ‘on demand’, and not just at the exact time it is on-air.
That is why all programs stay available as an on-demand stream after the broadcast. This, of course, is also why these programs may also be of interest to international audiences, regardless of the timezone they’re in.

Concertzender is  one of the very few (if not the only) Dutch radio stations that present contemporary experimental and electronic music next to classical, world and jazz music. It is a non-commercial station, passionately dedicated to present all forms of music to the interested listener – especially music that remains underexposed on other radio stations.
No need to say that I’m very proud to be part of this passionate Concertzender crew!

DreamScenes CZ

The DreamScenes radio show will  continue to present a mix of  ambient soundscapes, experimental electronics and contemporary classical in a one hour non-stop mix without detailed introduction. Tracklist and release details will be published on the Concertzender website and, of course, right here on Ambientblog just like you’re used to.
The monthly edition will also be available on Mixcloud shortly after the actual broadcast. If you want to check back previous editions, you can simply head to DreamScenes.nl for a complete overview. 

Concertzender Broadcast overview:
For Dutch listeners: Concertzender can be enjoyed via many analog cable channels in the Netherlands, and also through digital cable from UPC/Ziggo, Caiway and KPN/Xs4All. You can find  all details [here].
If you have no access to these cable channels there’s also the live-stream at concertzender.nl, where you can also find the on-demand back-catalogue.

For listening on mobile devices, you can also download the App:

DreamScenes 2017 – 5

DreamScenes Logo

The monthly editions of DreamScenes were never meant to present strictly ‘ambient’ music only. I prefer to merge different – though somewhat related – styles that share a dreamy, introvert, reflective, melancholic atmosphere (or whatever you would like to call it).

So, for this May edition, you can expect a bit of contemporary classical, a bit of piano, a bit of jazz , some drones and  (0f course) some ambient soundscapes too, to bring you a small hour of quiet dreamscenes  when needed.

Keep on (day)dreaming:

DreamScenes 2017-2

Music for the last days of Winter….

The february DreamScenes edition may feel darker than usual.
Possibly due to the dark winter days or, perhaps,  the general darkness of current times.
But don’t worry: there’s a sweet surprise at the end. So keep listening!

DreamScenes 2016 – 12

DreamScenes Logo

DreamScenes usually only features new releases, but this month I want to start with an exception in memory of Pauline Oliveros.
She introduced the concept of Deep Listening – which is only one of the many things she left behind and will be remembered for.

Watertank Software was the very first track I ever heard of her music. Needless to say it left a deep impression.
It was released in 1985 on the amazing Vor Der Flut collection, recorded in an empty watertank with a 45 second reverberation.


Pauline Oliveros- Watertank Software
(From “Vor Der Flut”, 1985)
 

This december edition is concluded with a track by Mario Batkoviç, who is also exploring the possibilities and limits of the accordeon.
This particular track – Desiderii Patriae, from his forthcoming album Solo – feels like a (probably unintended) tribute to Oliveros’ Deep Listening concept.

Well, so much for the beginning and the end of this edition.
Apart from that: in-between, there’s many other things (… and also many strings).

DreamScenes 2016-11

DreamScenes Logo

I guess it’s because of the dark season… Somewhat different from the usual DreamScenes selection, this edition contains no less than five (!) vocal tracks, and on top of that some acoustic guitar-oriented pieces.
So it seems this edition is somewhat more ‘pop-oriented’ than most previous editions.

Still, there’s this genuine ‘ambient’ feel… a ‘late night’ session, if you wish.
So: light up the candles, sit back and enjoy November’s DreamScenes selection:

Tracklist:

  • 00:00 DreamScenes Intro (Susanna)
