Hainveilchen

Introducing Cedric Vermue, upcoming artist from The Netherlands. We met at CEEYS’ Q3ambientfest in my former home town of Potsdam. Both tracks he sent me are work-in-progress, but they’re already sounding gorgeous. This Botanik set, “Hainveilchen” (common violet / Viola riviniana), also features some recommendations by my good pals Tom Blankenberg (track 02) and Michael McGarrity (track 06).

Narzisse (piano day 2019)

Botanik goes back to the roots of Planetarium’s earlier piano-only series Chiavi Nere and provides the fifth annual tribute to the Piano Day on March 29 (the 88th day of the year). Accompanying three pieces by the curator Nils Frahm himself are new additions to the Planetarium roster Peter Sandberg and Jeff Mercel who are both more on the orchestral and euphoric spectrum of this set. This channel’s staples like Ludvig Cimbrelius, Ólafur Arnalds, Luis Miehlich and Slow Meadow are also appearing with their piano pieces from the past 12 months that I’ve been waiting to play for quite some time. This set, “Narzisse” (narcissus), collects some of the most beautiful compositions of recent weeks – focussing mostly on piano – and rings in the spring season for Planetarium.
