Steve Roach's music is described as Pink Floyd on steroids! IMO

 :) Good to be able to watch AMBIcon live via Livestream. At work. On OT. I was planning on flying up to SanFran to spend the weekend in the San Rafeal area and check out Robert Rich and Steve Roach's sets. But OT at LAX is hard to pass up. So now I get to watch live and work OT. Yes, its not the same as being there but. . . .hey. . . .what the hell. I was actually very impressed with Michael Stearns set last night. I stayed up past my bed time to finally see M Stearns perform live. This was his first time performing live in 10 years. Always loved his music. Can't wait to get home and set up my apple tv to watch the master himself. . . . .Steve Roach. With a couple of good IPA  beers to drink along side. If I couldn't be there live I rather be out in the Mojave Desert with my iPad and speakers camping. Or at home on the big screen. Cheers to HOS. Thanks Steven Hill.

Will individual tickets be available day of show at the venue? As long as they haven't sold out?

So only northern California residents will be able to attend the individual concerts? SoCal and out of state are not allowed? I would like to attend two or all 4 concerts. So do I have to buy for the whole weekend event? $350-370 for non NorCal residents? It's a bit pricey just to see two or four shows. Don't you think?

I'm working a double shift @ LAX right now. In the middle of my 16 hour day/night now. Yippee!! All at holiday pay!! Listening to some Steve Roach, Tangerine Dream, Between Interval, etc. Watching the Lakers win. And some work in-between. Cheers all. Merry Christmas from beautiful LAX.

Yes you can, because there are too many.  ;)

Not in my album library. Never have enough of Steve Roach. Never get tired of his ever changing sounds. Different sounds for different situations. Like my TD library, I have every Roach album. I have two iPods. One for Rock and one for EM/ambient. And every Roach & TD album is loaded into it. I have certain Roach albums for drinking beer or camping out in the desert, camping in the mountains or road trips in the car. Even just chilling out at home.

My first TD experience was the "Sorceror" soundtrack. That took me to a different universe from Pink Floyd, Yes, ELP, etc. Ricochet, Phaedra, Rubycon and the rest is history. Klaus Schulze, Jean Michel Jarre, Kitaro, etc followed soon after. Then the late 80's hit and the Dream was more of a nightmare for me. What happened? Melrose, Goblins Club, etc was not doing it for me. The radio stations that were playing EM style music was going to jazz, soft jazz. Which was fine. But were did my EM music go? I think it was the end of EM here in America. Then the early 90 rolled around and I was out in the middle of the Mojave desert camping and I just happened to turn on the radio late at night and heard this program called Hearts of Space. They were playing Steve Roach and Robert Rich and a few others I don't remember. It was a new journey for me into the world of Roach and Rich and other ambient artist. So I had found a new era of sounds/music to follow in Roach/Rich/Stearns and others. It kinda reminded me of the first time hearing TD. So I found myself listening to less of TD and more of ambient/drone style music. My first Steve Roach concert was back in 1996 in a coffee shop in Santa Monica. Again, blown away! I was on a mission to buy any and all Steve Roach albums. I've seen Steve "live" every year since (with the exception of the Soundquest Fest in 2010). Late 2000 and with the streaming internet radio I start to discover some of the EM music coming out of Europe. "Nattefrost" with its old TD sounds and others. I start to get back into the Dream and start flying across the pond to see Edgar and company perform in concert. I figure the Dream doesn't have many years left before Edgar calls the final chapter in the book of Tangerine Dream. Yes, it's NOT the Tangerine Dream of the 70's/80's. But to me it's the one and only that started the trip for me back in 1978. If it wasn't for TD I dont think I would here on this site.

I too own most of the KS La Vie series. I still listen to KS and TD alot. Yes the old KS and TD back in the 70's were the prime. Edgar Froese has taken it to a new level. And most of the older TD fans dont care for it. I prefer the 70's and early 80's of TD and KS but times have changed. I think if they were to keep making the same style of music they will not have the newer fans. I've been to TD's concerts the last 6 years (4 times this year) and you have a mix of old and news fans. Even younger kids that came along with their parents. Just like going to a rock concert these days. I believe Edgar's (TD's) music is still the same but using acoustic instruments (ex. Linda Spa, Iris Camaa, and Hoshiko Yamane). It's like taking a step backwards from the 60's and 70's of the synth/electronic sounds. Yes he's added females to the band to attract more of the younger male, or older male. I guess you could say I am still a huge TD and KS fan. And I still prefer to see the Dream back in the days of improv. But I enjoy what Edgar puts out these days. After all I've flown across the pond the last 6 years to see them perform live.

I really hope they have tix available for individual shows.  $300 is probably a deal all things considered for seeing the numerous concerts that will take place, but don't know if I can justify spending that much.  I would really like to see Jeff Pearce and Michael Stearns, mainly because never seen them live before.  I have seen Robert Rich and Steve Roach numerous times throughout the years.  Would be nice to see them again, especially at this event.  The fact I live in the Bay Area really helps, too!

So the 300 is just for the event price? Yes, pretty steep considering. Then probably add another 250-300 for the hotel cost. I think I will wait till the individual ticket comes available.

Ticket Update. . . . .

Does anybody know if the prices here include the hotel cost? Or just for the weekend event? Hotel rooms are separate?

Went last week to the LA Gibson show. First timer. Awesome. Unlike anything I saw. Not TD like but different. Notsure if they played the entire new album. But what they did play I knew 70%. Glad I went.

yes, saw the interview. thought it was pretty cool. Edgar the Great lost alot of weight back in 2009. Flying back to Vienna after his band Tangerine Dream performed at an outdoor festival in Japan, he got some sort of bacterial infection and was sidelined for several months. Its been kept very quite on his health issues. During the Royal Albert Hall concert in 2010 he could hardly walk on stage or stand up for more than 5 minutes. He was very weak back then. But at his age playing for over 3 hours doesn't help either. I saw Edgar and the Dream 3 times this year. He is doing alot better. The Dream just finished off their 2012 Electric Mandarin Tour through Europe and N. America. Edgar is in good spirits when I talked to him. He is planning on taking the band to Australia and then over to Asia to finish off the Mandarin Tour in 2013.

Anybody here listen to Hearts of Space?

I thought this is interesting news that I received over the weekend.

HOS was born in 1973 at KPFA-FM in Berkeley. We went national 10 years later in 1983. We're celebrating with a rare and special live event at the EMBASSY SUITES HOTEL and CONFERENCE CENTER here in San Rafael, CA.
Its a conference built around 4 concerts by 8 core Hearts of Space artists including DAVID DARLING, ROBERT RICH, STEVE ROACH, MICHAEL STEARNS, TIM STORY, and more to be announced.
SAVE THE DATE! MAY 3-4-5, 2013. Details on our web site, on Facebook and by email in September.

If this holds true I will be there for the weekend.

I guess I will add my input on DCD.
During the week of Tangerine Dream in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles I meet a TD fan from Ventura who mentioned DCD at the Santa Barbara gig. Last week after coming down from a Dream high from the Club Nokia show I started to pull out some of my DCD cd's. A little research on the internet and a few albums later I went ahead and purchased a ticket to the Gibson Theater on Aug 14. I remember reading that they were getting back together and doing a new album and tour. I downloaded some of the new songs from utube. They are sounding great. Cant wait till the release. I cant wit to see DCD live. Never have. Should be funtastik.

And for those who care. . . .Tangerine Dream sounded awesome at Club Nokia. A 3+ hour show with old and new songs. Mostly older classics from Ricochet, Rubycon, Poland, Underwater Sunlight, etc. No, it's not the T Dream of the 70's or early 80's, but this years Dream was just as good. Of the last 10 TD concertds I've seen the Club Nokia was the best.

« on: December 30, 2011, 02:10:15 PM »
Finally ordered the box set the other day. Although I received a copy from a good friend, I cant wait to receive my box set. I have every album, video's from Steve. I have listened to Back to Life twice already. Groove just the first 15 minutes. Will get into groove tonight when I have more time to explore. Then off to Mojave desert New Years Day evening for some star gazing with Steve Roach & Tangerine Dream music in the background. Thats how I can really get into the sound currents without any interuptions. Too much distraction with the family at home. Chill.
