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:

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)

DreamScenes 2016-09/10

DreamScenes Logo

I have enjoyed a holiday in September, so I had to skip last month’s DreamScenes edition.
To compensate for the immeasurable grief this must have caused, ánd to celebrate the start of autumn, this edition is a twice as long as usual.

So I hope you’ll enjoy these two hours of new (and relatively new) music to make you float away into your daydream…

DreamScenes 2016-08

The August edition of DreamScenes feels like a full night’s sleep cycle compressed to one hour: starting off with the lively gamelan-bells of 36, sinking into half-sleep fantasies, losing touch with reality with Ian William Craig (no, that is nót dust on the record player’s needle), and sinking into deep sleep before slowly coming up (or down?) again…
