Episode 60 of The Ambient Vault podcast features special guest Egil Kalman.   Egil Kalman is a Swedish musician/composer primarily playing modular synthesizer and double bass. ”Kingdom of Bells Egil Kalman plays the Synthi 100” is his debut record as a solo artist.The record was made during a residency at the Contemporary Music Research Center (KSYME) in Athens in 2019. All the tracks were captured straight from the Synthi 100 as stereo recordings and contain no overdubs. The music showcases both the powerful and raw sound of this rare instrument as well as Kalman’s expansive interests as a musician and composer.Mind altering just tuned drones with melodies that echoes traditional Scandinavian folk music flow into abstract soundscapes reminiscent of early electronic music pioneers, but still holds a fresh sound and vibe. Deep synth music from the North!Egil Kalman’s playing as a syntheist and double bass player can previously be heard in duos with Zoe Efstathiou and Fredrik Rasten as well as in groups such as Miman, Marthe Lea Band and Alasdair Roberts & Völvur.His music aims to dissolve the brittle barriers separating traditional Scandinavian folk- and contemporary electroacoustic music via minimalist compositional techniques and soulful improvisations. Utilizing just intonation tunings, hypnotic forms, synthesized sound mimicking the acoustic and vice versa, his music explores qualities intrinsic to traditional Scandinavian folk music in ways where the musical foundation is felt rather than explicitly heard.About BlågetenTraditional Swedish folk melody played live on a Buchla 200 sytem at EMS (elektronmusik studion) in StockholmAbout Pattern IllusionRecorded live on my eurorack systemMany thanks to Egil for being on the podcast and as always thanks for listening!

Episode 58 - Keinseier

2022-04-2422:57

Episode 58 of The Ambient Vault features special guest Keinseier.  Keinseier (/kaɪn-zaɪɑː/ rhymes with line-flyer) is an electronic artist interested in exploring the creative process and music through combinations of organic and electronic sounds. From tiny glitches to orchestral string instruments, he uses generative and randomization techniques to create ever-evolving, oftentimes ambient and cinematic pieces, which tend to include both analog and digital noises - which are reused to create something new.  In „real life“ he is a trained media composer (who majored in film scoring at Berklee College of Music) and has written music to a multitude of commercials, feature films and tv series`.keinseier lives and works in Hamburg, Germany.“I started the whole keinseier project as a way to release music free from the limitations of genre, style and external and internal censors.Since my day job is that of a media composer, my music often has to meet very specific demands - be it in the emotion it evokes, the length, the dynamic arc etc.I wanted to give myself the chance and challenge of just making the kind of music that happens to come out, given the tools I choose. This has been a sometimes surprising, sometimes challenging but very rewarding experience. In trying not to censor myself to what I think is cool, what I think the audience wants to hear or I myself think I want to hear etc, I often arrive at surprising results which tend to come really easy - because I am not necessarily trying to achieve something in particular, but let the music take me where it wants to go. Results which, to me, are far more interesting than trying to write adhering to a certain image I have of myself.” - KeinseierMany thanks to Keinseier for being on the podcast, and as always thanks for listening!

Episode 57 of The Ambient Vault podcast features special guest Ricardo Peixoto. “I’ve been making music, on and off, for        25+ years and started/joined a few projects throughout those years either as a musician or as a video artist.But only recently, and mostly since the pandemic hit, started making music by myself (and for myself as well) and enjoying this whole process of discovery and experimentation.  I enjoy harmony and melody, not happy, not sad, somewhere in between. I also use found sounds, field recordings and I'm an avid fan of noises, glitches and controlled randomness.  I like the idea of being more of a curator than a musician/performer and being surprised with what comes out with the constraints I set. Closer to the feeling of being surprised with new music rather than consciously creating it. Most of what I create is either generative, improvised or a mixture of both.Modular is the main instrument, but tape, mostly reel-to-reel recorders, is also a part of the process, by recording and randomly cutting loops and using them as a base to explore from.” - Ricardo PeixotoRicardo has been kind enough to share a mix of tracks for this week’s episode (Track 3 - voice by Tina Jander).  Thanks so much Ricardo!

Episode 43 of The Ambient Vault Podcast features special guest Luca Longobardi.  Italian composer and pianist Luca Longobardi represents the generation of classically trained musicians who incorporate the language of contemporary electronic music into their pieces, which are furthermore strongly connected to the multimedia arts.Born in 1976, Longobardi studied classical music in Italy and New York and went on to earn his doctorate in digital audio restoration in Rome in 2011. His works reveal a strong interaction between classical and contemporary music.The experience he has gained as a theatre musician has increased his interest in the relationship between sounds and spectacle; he has composed music for ballets and films and accompanied installations and experimental art productions (Atelier de Lumières - Paris, Carrières des Lumières - Baux-de-Provence, Kunstkraftwerk - Leipzig).  At his multimedia performances and in his recordings, strongly experimental electronic music meets pure, ethereal and simple-seeming piano playing that nevertheless relays deep emotions.Luca has generously shared the following tracks for this week’s episode of the podcast to which I am most grateful and excited to share with you.  More about Luca and his music and projects below and as always thanks so much for listening!1.

SEDIMENTAZIONESOCIAL:https://linktr.ee/lucalongobardi_off“Longobardi’s works seem to be spontaneous, based on everyday-life situations that give the impression of being very simple but that hold deep feelings and thoughts, and the more you immerse yourself in them the more familiar they become, and will fill you with nostalgia for places and people you don't know.”(piano and coffee co.)“The fragile and intimate piano sonatas are often in the foreground, interwoven with electronic nuances and atmospheric soundscapes. The emotional picture is a fragile skeleton of melancholy, the kind of melancholy that is born between longing and lucid dreaming.”(Gezeitenstrom - Musikmagazin)“On one side, airy melodies and relaxed chord progressions make these songs a light hearted experience, but often in the high pitched numbers, there is a kind of solid melancholy.” (phenon’enom)IMMERSIVE SHOWSCarrières de Lumières (Provence): https://www.carrieres-lumieres.com/fr/dali-lenigme-sans- finAtelier des Lumières (Paris): https://www.atelier-lumieres.com/fr/monet-renoir-chagall- voyages-en-mediterraneeLes Bassins de Lumières (Bordeaux): https://www.bassins-lumieres.com/fr/gustav-klimt-dor- et-couleursBunker des Lumières (South Korea): https://www.bunkerdelumieres.com/Exhibitions Kunstkraftwerk (Leipzig): https://www.kunstkraftwerk-leipzig.com/de/ausstellungen Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit (Toronto): https://vangoghexhibit.ca/              Immersive Van Gogh (Chicago): https://www.vangoghchicago.com/ Immersive Van Gogh (San Francisco): https://www.vangoghsf.com/INTERVIEWS AND ARTICLESFEATURE Inside Immersive Van Gogh: https://www.ludwig-van.com/toronto/2020/08/31/ feature-inside-immersive-van-gogh/Luca Longobardi and the House Concert: https://openhouse-magazine.com/luca-longobardi- and-the-house-concert/Music Makes Art Magic: Atelier des Lumières: https://www.artsjournal.com/brightride/ 2019/01/14/music-makes-art-magic-atelier-des-lumieres/If you enjoy the podcast, please subscribe and leave a review.

Episode 42 of The Ambient Vault podcast features special guest Samuel Edmund.  Samuel Edmund is the moniker of Jae Ryan when he makes broken, worn and nostalgic ambient music.Jae has been generous to share tracks from his debut album “Due To”. “Due To” was released on Folded Note Records a few months ago and the tapes sold out within 24 hours!“Due To” is an album full of live improvisations where Jae used a Minimoog, Buchla Music Easel, Digital Mellotron & Ciat-Lonbarde instruments.  “Due To” was Jae’s attempt to capture the strange emptiness brought on by lockdowns and COVID while still trying to provide plenty of hopefulness for the future.  A second edition cassette of “Due To” is available now. Link to the album and all things Jae are listed below. Thanks as always for listening!  Jae also hosts a Podcast called “The Deerhorn” which focuses on Ciat-Lonbarde instruments. Each episode is a conversation with various members of the Ciat-Lonbarde community and focuses on the artists new releases, recording process, personal history & their love for various gear.  The Deerhorn often features the artists of Seil records & Folded Note Records.  Recently, Jae was also a guest on the wonderful Podular Modcast as well.The 4 tracks on this EP were made shortly after Jae moved from Edmonton to Vancouver.  He fell head over heels for the new city and each track on this is a love letter to his favourite places to skateboard in Vancouver.  When he’s not head first into a modular filled studio, Jae can usually be found skateboarding, hiking, cycling and taking pictures.Due To:https://foldednote.bandcamp.com/album/due-toJae’s personal Bandcamp:https://samueledmund.bandcamp.comJae’s YouTube:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdBo6YNb4ExdxftqAJ_djqQJae’s Podcast:https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/the-deerhorn/id1535334953Jae on PodMod:https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/episode-165-jae-ryan-host-of-the-deer-horn-podcast/id1363821591?i=1000531569908If you enjoy the podcast, you can help support future episodes by subscribing to the podcast and leaving a review, following Brian on Instagram @heldbymachines, and subscribing to his YouTube channel.  You can also check out the Instagram page Brian curates for his late grandfather, gospel pianist James Miller.  https://www.instagram.com/jamesmillergospelpianist/?hl=en  Thanks!Email: brianeverettmiller@yahoo.com.  Brian on Instagram:https://www.instagram.com/heldbymachines/Brian on Youtube:https://youtube.com/channel/UCSAWKkRtE8tVTvD1r202tRw
