Planetarium is an ambient, post-rock & classical music promotion project by Nils Feldhus (Heidelberg, DE) started in November 2013 together with Frank Korf (Remagen, DE) for It’s a hub for monthly mixes showcasing new releases and timeless pieces mostly coming from a newer generation of artists.

Predecessor of this regular broadcast is Night Hawk Radio, also known as Serenades, which consisted of 90-minute mixes compiled by Nils Feldhus exclusively available at Helioscope. The genre has changed over the course of the years. Until 2013, it was much more focussed on rhythms, vocals and melodies. Since Planetarium, Frank Korf and I have developed a one-of-a-kind aural experience created by merging long-winded drone sounds with contemporary classic. Heavily instrumental and a lot more relaxing than before!
