Planetarium Tracks

Spell - Time Waves

Here is another set of tracks from 1979 performed primarily on synthesizers. There is also a grand piano in the mix which works to great effect on a couple tracks. This is literally space music. The work was commissioned for the Alexander Brest Planetarium in Jacksonville, Florida. The music was composed and performed by Jack Tamul, and Joe Deihl. This was a private release on Tsunami Records and apparently it was the only release on the label.

say goodbye

        sometimes it isn't easy to say goodbye.
        not having a chance to say goodbye is worse.

Chee - Now and Then

I'm very happy to announce that we have another great mix from my friend Chee at the growing bin. In this mix he plays favourite discoveries from his last digging trip to the mediterranean. So be prepared for some excellent balearic fusion, MPB, portugese Pearls, italian Disco Pop, sundried ambient and a lot more... Thanks a lot for this Chee!

check out also his mic for LNCC here

No Crime

Toshifumi Hinata released a couple of LPs - all I've heard are amazing. Not easy to categorize, but I think "ambient minimal Pop with a classical touch" would give you an idea of it?? Sarah's Crime is his first as far as I know and my favourite  Toshi LP. That's why I share it here. Cheers, Basso

Twilight Cities

This recording is a redo of Torgue's first lp. The og was released in 1976 and in 1979 Henry Torgue decided to rerecord the the whole record in a different studio with a different producer. Another album, Compartiment Fuchsia, was released in 1979, as well. That one featured a trio setting where the others were solo recordings. Depending on the response to this one I may offer you that one, as well. Torgue is playing a variety of keyboards here and as usual the jams are intoxicating.
