Fragments … strange title for my actual mixtape, but as there are so many different artists with different styles, I think it makes sense. Artists like D Smilez or Amitron7 create wonderful chilled tracks, mixed up with actual dance elements; in comparison to that Coldnoise show us how to play the piano in order to create a stunning atmosphere. Also Mark Dorricott is part of this mixtape with a special remix of his track Nightfall.


60 Minutes Of Chill, Part 42: Vangelis – The Tegos Tapes Mix (Part Two)

Part two of Vangelis´ unreleased „Tegos Tapes“.

(It contains music from Case 15 to 24)

It was my intention to create an ambient – almost meditative – mix of some of the case-music excerpts. As in part one you hear only parts that do not include any medical voice overs.

I´m fully aware that some of the parts are in a very rough condition, but I didn´t want to edit these cuts, in order to present the music as it was made back in the 1990s. It is not a fully high quality recording of his music – carefully mastered and edited; it´s a „out of the box“ recording; still a fascinating example of his genius.

“Every human being, animal, plant or mineral carries the imprint of the cycle of Creation. Sound has always followed the sequences of change in this cycle, like a code carrying the function and dimension of the universe, being at the same time its generator. Let us go deep into our memory (and remember), by doing this, we will be able to decode the code of the Creation of the universe and, therefore, our own. What an extraordinary and divine key is music!” – Vangelis

This time I´m proud to present you a true rarity, when it comes to electronic music:

Back in the 1990s Vangelis created a soundtrack for surgeon tapes lessons for a friend of him (Dr. Tegos), in order to make these lessons less monotous (12 hours of lessons …). There are many sources where you can find rough bootleg cuts of these sessions but none of them came close to an audio experience, being worth to mention when it comes to the music of Vangelis.

Also, there are no plans so far – by Vangelis himself – to create an official edit of this music and I fear that such a release won´t be realised at all. For a long time I was looking for fine sound examples of these sessions, and just about one month ago I read an article on synthopia.com where Neville Dorington (co-host of the Ultima thule ambient radio show in Australia) uploaded a great edit on soundcloud of most of the music Vangelis wrote for his friend.

What you are about to listen to are edits of the music from the tapes that doesn’t include any medical voice overs. (It contains music from the edits of „Case 01“ to „Case 14“). I hope you enjoy this first part of my 2 hour presentation of these rare ambient moments by Vangelis. Listening to this exceptional music you will find pieces which almost sound like a new Bladerunner soundtrack, some parts remember me on his early records like „Heaven And Hell“ some like altered version of his records in the late 90ies („The City“).

The original VHS box set includes a book which opens with a quote from Vangelis himself:

“Every human being, animal, plant or mineral carries the imprint of the cycle of Creation. Sound has always followed the sequences of change in this cycle, like a code carrying the function and dimension of the universe, being at the same time its generator. Let us go deep into our memory (and remember), by doing this, we will be able to decode the code of the Creation of the universe and, therefore, our own. What an extraordinary and divine key is music!” – Vangelis

A Night At The Mix

Tonight At The Mix

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


On 7th of December (2015)  OPUS – one of the most famous austrian pop/rock bands – gave an concert in the opera house of my hometown Graz. All the incomes of these evening were passed on to support the projects of the organisation „Menschen für Menschen„.

Since 2009 OPUS play every two years in the opera house in order to collect money and to give the audience an superb evening filled with their hits. Even more, they invite aritsts to play with them on stage. This year they invited Willi Resetarits (alias Kurt Ostbahn), Michael Vatter und Stipsits, Ganster & Bäer.  It was a great evening and I can only recommend to visit one of their concerts!!!

Also, I had the honour to provide a 60 minute mix of my electronic music in order to „warm-up“ the people one hour before the show started, and now I present you this mix on webradio station modul303 and (a week later) on my mixcloud page.

Consider this mix as a retrospective of my work as composer and remixer:

The first three mixes present the collaboration part in my music. Having the chance to work with other artists is always challenging and great fun. In this section I present you tracks with Mark Dorricott, Ewald Pfleger and Stephen Sherrard.

The next three tracks present my own music, where I focus on my own skills and try to tell my personal stories and feelings.

The last three tracks present my passion for remixing songs from other artists. It´s always great fun to work with the music from others, transposing it into something new (and different) while – at the same time – trying to keep the „soul“ of the original track. I´ve choosen tracks from Claudio Fiore, Ann Grace & Marie Therese and Silvino.
