Handelskai

Waves crashing at Planetarium bay: The likes of Kenji Kihara, Ryosuke Miyata and Olan Mill are at the forefront of this set with their maritime ambient style. They’re joined by ILUITEQ, Poemme and newcomer Filalete who present the brighter and airy tracks. Ian Nyquist closes this mix – extended from the 1-hour FRISKY broadcast – with a stunning double feature from his latest album on eilean which will certainly be spearheading this year’s “best of”.

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.

Niemandsland

“No man’s land”, a term usually reserved for unhabitable places, does not make this cover art justice. In reality, the Zhangjiajie National park is one of the most exciting attractions in all of China. The pillar-like rock formations have this very unique look and inspired the movie Avatar. I had this image by Joshua Sortino as my desktop background for a long time now and decided to dedicate Planetarium’s final (regular) episode of 2018 to it.
Niemandsland encompasses a wide range of styles of ambient music, but the two complementary opening tracks by Loscil, Aaron Martin, Dag Rosenqvist and the amazing acoustic guitar by Seabuckthorn on both set the tone really well. Later in the set, bold and full tracks by offthesky, vau, Yui Onodera, AngusMacRae and InsaDonjaKai are supported by the calmer sounds courtesy of Chihei Hatakeyama, Cheekbone, Anthéne, William Basinki and Lawrence English. As the penultimate track, I chose quite a rhythmic track for a change of pace in the archives of Planetarium.
