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.

Brandungstor

The sea arch is Helioscope’s gateway to 2019: With the first mix of my eighth year of producing sets, I introduce newcomers Kin Leonn, Innesti and Kenji Kihara to the Planetarium roster. Coastal ambient is the major theme here, an aural soundscape constructed from reverb-heavy guitars, piano melodies that make you float and sunny drones. Endless Melancholy, Hirotaka Shirotsubaki, Steven Kemner and Umber are thrown into the mix to bridge the cold northern hemisphere winter with these 90 minutes of warm and lush vibes.
