I think it is just play and reverb.

Continuing this topic about movement in drones ...

I noticed one thing ... at the very bottom of the drone, in its tonic, seems like jerky movements ... seem to be like tremolo or something. And it's also, create that "magic movement" illusion. Look at this example link: (it's again, short excerpt from M. Grassow track)

https://soundcloud.com/andrew-bond-937682349/sound-3


Most low frequency of this drone sounds like  U_U_U___pause___U__U_U___pause and so on

This lowest part of the drone has a gaps or something. If you know how to do this, please, what's the best way to make this? I don't think that this is just notes programmed in sequencer, i think that initially this is seamless note, but gaps created by tremolo (?) or maybe i'm wrong ... And these gaps have some rhythm. It's rhythmic in some kind ...

Talking about bad timing, the latest album had just been finalised for release when the sad news of Klaus Schulze's passing came in... we hope it will not make the impression of exploiting this sad cause for our own purposes:

Bernhard and I have known each other for ages, and last year we decided to try and create some music in a joint effort.

Enjoy, and thanks for your ongoing support,

Hello everybody at Hypnos,

this is my very first post, so please bear with me, I'm a total newbie :)
My name is Andreas Meyer, I'm an electronic music producer from Germany. In 2020 I released my first album "Music for Cars" - now it's time for the second album called "Wayfarer". Wayfarer will be released shortly, on May 6th on Bandcamp (and is also available for pre-order as of now). Expect warm, contemplative, and ultimately relaxing instrumental electronics, dreamy clockwork loops & robo-funk grooves influenced by Kraftwerk, Peter Baumann, Edgar Froese, Klaus Schulze, Ashra & all the other pioneers of electronic music.

About the album:

"This album is about my travels to England. I'd go there once a year if I can. Normally I would just  choose a campsite - almost anywhere in England -and make it my base camp for exploration. Over the years I have visited many places. The South Downs, the Norfolk Broads, Britain's magical waterland, the coasts of Dorset, Sussex and Devon, the mysterious Peak District, the manor houses, churches and castle ruins all over England. I went by foot, by car and by boat. But mainly by foot. Trudging up hills, walking along rivers, climbing down valleys. In heavy or moderate rain, under a bright or a waning sun, during summer storms. The weather in England is crazy, it changes every day. But by and large it is perfectly normal and very agreeable. The most wondrous places I discoverd were those that weren't listed on any maps. Every track on this album refers to such a place - or a distinctive moment I still have in mind. 'Black Brook' for example is a small stream on the eastern slopes of 'The Roaches', a rocky ridge in the Peak District. 'Port of Youth' is my understanding of life in Swanage - a coastal town in Dorset - as it might have been during the Victorian era. All in all I would've never found those places if I hadn't travelled by foot. That's why this album is called 'Wayfarer'. A wayfarer is a person who travels by foot. Hope you enjoy."






Best wishes

Andreas

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Cans.....Whats on your head?
« Last post by Seren on April 29, 2022, 10:49:30 AM »
I've been wanting to get a dedicated hi-fi amp for a while and recently realised that the beyerdynamic A20 is being discontinued. It's had very good reviews and I found the last one in Audio-T on ex-demo. Currently second hand ones on Ebay are costing more.....
I have it on loan to try out and so far it is very very good.



and it sits very nicely on my rack powering the Beyer T5 cans.

Just learnt that Klaus Schulze died yesterday.
One of my earliest and enduring musical inspirations. Will be deeply missed...
