  New in the catalog
Ramp – Arp-en-Ciel

On it’s way to us is the new Stefen Parsick release .
Should be in by the end of this week.

“arp-en-ciel” is probably the most up-to-date album i have released in a long while.

admittedly, some bits had already been recorded between january 2018 and july 2020 but the majority of music came into being in early 2022, just before klaus schulze’s passing. obviously, my music had strongly been influenced by schulze’s work — however, i didn’t want to jump the bandwagon and use schulze’s passing as a vehicle to promote my own work. hence, i decided to postpone its release and, instead, published “happy days” first.

when recording the tracks for “ultima ratio”, i thought to myself that it would be great to return to the simplicity of my earliest music, making use of very simple chordal progressions (not that i know any more complicated ones anyway), lots of improvised soloing, very much in the vein of those who inspired me in the late summer of 1988. the album title just came to mind as a pun on the french “arc-en-ciel” as i used mainly arp synthesisers for the first half of the album. quite witty, huh?

the second half of the album is made up of some recordings that date back to april 2000 when cosmic hoffmann and i had spent a lovely morning, walking through a misty forest (we were quite foggy as well but that would be a different story altogether). a subsequent recording session at klaus’ own quasar studio quite nicely absorbed the atmosphere of that morning but, for some reason, the music had remained unused until i re-discovered it by accident. i took some bits from this session and turned them into some rather ambient affair which i think klaus might have liked, too.or most probably not, who knows.

released May 2, 2023

Rudy Adrian – A Walk in the Shadow Garden

1. A Walk in the Shadow Garden – 05:10
2. Clouds Over Fields – 06:07
3. Dawn Redwood – 03:54
4. Hemlock Grove – 04:59
5. Of Mosses and Liverworts – 06:05
6. Maple Glen – 07:46
7. Rising Mist – 06:18
8. Dark Waters – 06:31

10. Beechwood – 01:29
11. Conversations With A Gardener – 07:26

On A Walk in the Shadow Garden, as on previous albums throughout his career, Spotted Peccary Music artist Rudy Adrian paints sylvan scenes with sound. A percussive trilling on “Dawn Redwood” could be the hammering of a woodpecker’s beak. Glittering chimes evoke light through tangled branches on the track “Hemlock Grove.” Such is the music of nature to Adrian, where these twin passions of a life upon the Earth have been forever forged. Inspired by the sacred environment found when alone in a garden, Adrian planted his own sonic garden for the listener, painting vibrant scenes with electronic textures and chimes as well as acoustic guitar and flute. On the title track, an arpeggiator flutters like insect wings over echoing acoustic guitar chords, as intertwined as bee and blossom. Hear the wind in the panoramic tapestries of “Clouds Over Fields,” see a morning’s silver fog drift down a hillside in the spare piano of “Rising Mist,” see moonlight dapple the waves in the eerie chimes of “Dark Waters.” The eleven compositions here invite exploration without calling attention to themselves. Adrian eschews vocals and even melodies to create an open space for the listener: a companion piece for rest, reading, and walks down winding forest trails. With this release, Rudy Adrian speaks truth in the purest form of Ambient Music. A Walk in the Shadow Garden is testament to this form and to an electronic architect at the height of his powers inviting the listener into his place of peace.

Harald Grosskopf – Oceanheart (ltd. deluxe edition 2 CD)

CD 1:
1. Eve On The Hill
2. While I’m Walking
3. Oceanheart
4. Coming Out
5. Pondicherry Dream
6. Minimal Boogie

CD 2:
1. Eve On The Hill (Ocean Revisited)
2. While I’m Walking (Ocean Revisited)
3. Oceanheart (Ocean Revisited)
4. Coming Out (Ocean Revisited)
5. Pondicherry Dream (Ocean Revisited)
6. Minimal Boogie (Ocean Revisited)

Limited to 500 copies each, with the first record being the original “Oceanheart” album from 1984. The second part “Oceanheart Revisited” is a remix album, created from Harald Grosskopf and Tobias Stock, an electronics engineer and owner of a top-class analogue studio where the new versions of the six “Oceanheart” tracks were created.
Harald Grosskopf is best known as drummer in the band Ashra and for Klaus Schulze (“Moondawn”) and as an electronic musician. Following “Synthesist” (1980, see below), “Oceanheart” was his second solo album. It may sound like a child of the 1980s, but in a compositional sense it is related to the Berliner Schule / Berlin School of the 70’s. The reissue comes with a new artwork and was mastered from the original tapes.
