Note: After the next (250th) upload, Planetarium will consist of five series: Neptunian (Water), Geophon (Earth), Jovian (Air), Lumen (Day) and Nox (Night). These cover new releases in ambient and will accommodate for the discontinuation of Open Firmament, Botanik and the regular Planetarium series. In addition, monthly Sternwarte (Mixcloud Select) and seasonal Retrospektive sets will take care of the more dated stuff.

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.

4 Jahre Planetarium

For the fourth anniversary of the by far most popular show and channel on Helioscope.NET, we’re going back to the first year of episodes between 2013 and 2014. Back then, Frank Korf wanted me to produce a regular show similar to Planetarium’s predecessor Night Hawk Radio and we collaborated on the first lot of mixes. The style has shifted more towards pure ambient and drone in the last two years, but it’s always great to go crate-digging for these gems. So here is a small selection of my favorite tracks that I played on the first twenty-ish episodes of Planetarium:

4 Jahre Planetarium (Retrospektive 2)
01 Lights Dim with Gallery Six – Echoes of the Ongoing Riot [Kaico]
02 iambic – Touch the Sky [Laridae]
03 Chequerboard – Dunes [Lazybird]

05 Hammock – Then the Quiet Explosion [Hammock]
06 Helios – In Everything Was Given [Unseen]
07 Benoît Pioulard – Censer (Segue Remix) [Lost Tribe]
08 Luke Howard – Pan [Lukktone]
09 Good Weather For An Airstrike – Two Miles of Uncertainty [Rural Colours]
10 Olan Mill – Country [Serein]
11 Jónsi & Alex – Happiness [Parlophone]
12 Julianna Barwick – Pyrrhic [Dead Oceans]
13 Levi Patel – And She Translated into the Sky
14 Andrew Bayer – All This Will Happen Again [Anjunabeats]

16 Rhian Sheehan – Sileo [LOOP]
17 Ben Woods – Another Dream
18 Bitcrush – Post (Nichts ist wie vorher, Bersarin Quartett RMX) [n5MD]
