Korund

Planetarium is back from its summer break. We’re starting off with a long-overdue renewal of the beloved Geophon series, this time with lush folk-, electro-acoustic and post-rock summer vibes in the first half and more serious modern classical works in the second half, while ambient takes a background role. I’m looking forward to bringing plenty of new sets to Select subscribers in the coming weeks.

Michael McGarrity + Planetarium – Klippenpfade

It’s been a year since my ambient music neighbour Michael McGarrity appeared on Planetarium and FRISKY CHILL’s Neptunian with his guest mix. We decided a follow-up is long overdue, so he came up with an exciting new format: Sending the mix back and forth between each other after each track (technically, sometimes two). This new form of collaborative set is what I now labelled Interplanetar. This exquisite first edition was first aired on Michael’s FRISKY CHILL show Wander earlier this month. We both added a few more tracks at the end to extend it to around 75 minutes and “Klippenpfade” (cliff paths), exploring both classics and 2021 releases at the same time, is the result.

6 Jahre Planetarium : Stationary Travels

Brian Housman, curator of the Stationary Travels blog and Mixcloud channel, has been a key influence for my Planetarium sets for many years. I asked him for a submission to the 6-year anniversary of Planetarium (which happened last Friday on November 1) and he kindly put together an entrancing journey through the past six years of ambient music up to very recent releases. It’s an honour to have him back on the decks after the 6-year Helioscope celebration back in 2017.

Basalt

Geophon is the new series for all things post-rock, folk and acoustic.
