DreamScenes is a Concertzender radioshow since july 2017, so as far as the Concertzender editions go this is the 18th edition. But befóre it became a radio show, there it was a monthly feature on Ambientblog ever since October 2014. This means that this months show is the 50th DreamScenes edition!! I tried to make this edition an example what I want DreamScenes to be. ‘Dreamlike’ is the only constant, which means you can doze away comfortably while listening. But be prepared: like in your dreams the journey may take some unexpected turns. Some parts may get a bit weird, scary perhaps, but overall it’s peacefully floating. Musically it’s a combination of ambient, electronic, atmospheric acoustic, or modern classical music…. mostly recent releases, sometimes older. I am VERY proud that Concertzender Nederland broadcasts these monthly compilations and makes them available for a worldwide audience to explore. Because that is ultimately what this is all about: exploring. Finding new music that perhaps you hadn’t heard about before, a starting point to dig deeper into the works of all these awesome artists. You can listen to all previous and future DreamScenes editions on DreamScenes.nl, or on the Mixcloud channel. The Concertzender editions can of course also be streamed on-demand from this website.
100 Episodes of Kairos: a talk with Programmer Wino Penris
Thursday November 1 at 23.00, The Concertzender broadcasts the 1OOth episode of Kairos. The programme’s compiler, Wino Penris, calls Kairos ‘a meditation on contemporary music’. Kairos episodes seem to be some sort of musical essays. How did you get that idea? The idea simply occurred to me. At first, I had a profile in mind of the sort of music I wanted to use. The profile itself was limited to terms like ‘contemporary, spiritual, profound’. As my experience grew, I began choosing the music more and more intuitively. And it turned out that much more was possible that way and that the programme formulated its own theme. If I only took care to hear it.
