Schwemmkanal

“Flume” (water channel) is the English translation of the title of a new Planetarium curated 90-minute set that makes forest scapes almost tangible. With water rivulets surrounding you in your aural environment, this is as close to nature ambient as it can get. The compilation featuring the mavens of modern classical and electic sound feasts is very grounded, soft like moss, but still captures an atmosphere that feels ethereal.

Schreine

Neptunian returns as a regular Mixcloud series with sun-drenched ambient to bring you through the cold and dark winter days.
The 1-hour monthly broadcasts will now appear unedited after 2-3 weeks delay. Also the Planetarium release frequency is down to every 10 days instead of weekly. This is due to less time I can spent on production this year. I hope to be back in full force in the last quarter of 2019.

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.
