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.

Perigäum

The very essence of a supermoon night is captured in this new compilation of elevating nocturnal drones. “Perigee” (meaning the closest point between moon and earth) shines bright on the biggest contemporary talents in ambient and especially those who can convey the nocturnal feeling through their music. Also introducing 扎克, Ishq and Erder to the Planetarium roster.

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.
