Facetten

Following Nox, Planetarium introduces another series capturing one essence of its former mixes. The Lumen series is the exact opposite of Nox, chiming in with the aural equivalent of pure brightness, the sun, the daylight, constructing euphoric soundscapes. A lot of Planetarium’s origins in Serenades and Night Hawk Radio shone a light on the aspects of the cinematic ambient and modern classical that dares to explore dynamics, higher levels of treble and such. Starting with the pilot, Facetten, I will return to this sort of music more regularly now.

Wassersicht

James Bonner is a very loyal listener of all things Helioscope and Planetarium and he asked me to make a water-themed set including some suggestions of his. He gave me plenty to choose from, so I will produce multiple sets with them. Here’s the first one featuring Umber’s “Low Tide” and Hammock’s “I Could Hear the Water at the Edge of All Things”, both perfect intro and outro tracks respectively.

Plus, Mixcloud HQ were the bearer of fantastic news last week. They invited me (the Planetarium channel) to join their Select program which offers me to submit additional sets that will be available to you if you become a subscriber for just € 2.99. Your payment will support the artist of the scene. I will make sure that my fraction will be spent fully on Bandcamp and related stores.

“Wassersicht” (roughly translates to “waterscape”) is the first edition of the new Sternwarte series (Mixcloud Select only sets). In this series, I catch up with (mostly) older stuff in my music library that still hasn’t been featured on any set of mine. Only if you become a subscriber, you will get access to this monthly recurring series.

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.
