Musik von Suriya (Björn Vogelsang) kannst Du hören! Zum Zweiten Saiowa (Christian Meier), von dem Du vielleicht schon einmal seine „Elektronische Musik und Planespotting“ auf unserem YouTube-Kanal
https://www.youtube.com/@Schallwelle-schallwende gehört hast.

Und last but not least IcingWolf (https://icingwolf.bandcamp.com/).
Monika Freerk hat ja schon bei der Schallwelle-Preisverleihung auf der Bühne gestanden und auch gespielt.

Ich hoffe, da ist auch etwas für Dich dabei. Für Speis‘ und Trank wird wie immer auch gesorgt; viel Platz gibt es auch auf Glanemanns Wiese und in der Scheune (Oestricher Landwehr 12; 59227 Ahlen). – Vielen Dank auch an Bernd und Steffi, dass ihr wieder die Gastgeber seid!

Einen kleinen Eindruck von den Örtlichkeiten bietet das kleine Grillfestvideo auf unserem YouTube-Kanal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phvMu4UNsaA

Ein Hinweis zum Umweltschutz: Wenn es geht, bringe doch bitte eigenes Geschirr, Besteck und Becher/Tasse mit; das reduziert den Verbrauch von Wegwerfartikeln.
Im letzten Newsletter hatte ich den Link vergessen:

Das Anmelden fürs Grillfest geht über unseren Webshop; es kostet wie vor zwei Jahren 5€ (ähnlich, wie der Gruga-Eintritt). Das dient auch der Kalkulation für den Einkauf von Bratwürstchen, Kartoffelsalat und Getränken.
Dazu auch noch einmal meine Bitte, eventuell geplante Salatgeschenke vorher anzukündigen (Mail an schallwende@web.de) – danke!

Dreamscape will be online tomorrow morning (Saturday)
Thanks for your time!

Dear friends and fans of Pyramid Peak, in the middle of the “summer slump” the new Pyramid Peak album, entitled “KONTINUUM”, will be released on August 1st, 2024!

Pyramid Peak’s now 12th studio album has a special feature, as the music was produced for the first time by Axel Stupplich only, as Andreas Morsch is still in his musical break that began in mid-2023. Nevertheless, everything that Pyramid Peak has been known for, for over 20 years, can be found on this CD: sophisticated sequences, hypnotic beats, melodies with catchy tunes and beautiful harmonies. A total of 6 new pieces with a total playing time of more than 68 minutes take the listener on a journey into the Pyramid Peak sound universe.

The CD will be shipped on August 1st, 2024 A small sample can be found here (live version of Aquamarine, one of the tracks on the new CD KONTINUUM): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37O3DJzUpms
Have fun with the new CD and see you at the E-Live Festival at the latest!

Spyra + Roksana (Moon and Melody) – Voices of Ancestors

1.Voices of ancestors/Stimmer der Vorfahren 31:15
2.Kolysanka dla Marii/Wiegenlied für Maria (Oekraïens kinderlied) 6:40

Voices of ancestors is a music album by the duo Moon & Melody. That duo consists of Wolfram Spyra (electronic music) and Roksana Vikaluk from classical music. Recordings took place in the St. Mary’s Church in Frankfurt an der Oder.

The duo had experienced the acoustics of the church during an earlier visit and were impressed. This resulted in the construction of a small steel installation, which serves as Spyra’s musical instrument in the church. These so-called Bow chimes, developed by Rob Butman, provide the “accompaniment” to Vikaluk’s vocal contributions. The installation was equipped with a microphone for the recordings, but the main recording took place using a microphone installation placed in an artificial head in the center of this large church. This microphone installation also captured all kinds of natural sounds, such as chirping birds and chimes.

The album is dedicated to Bob Rutman, the instrument builder died during the production process.
