Astrosound - Welcome Back In Space 2010

We did it! ASTROSOUND Reunion!
Space, you know, Space Space Space ... remember...
For the first time we met and played together in the original Astrosound formation - Thomas - space guitar & space vocals, Heiko - space elctronics, space guitar & space vocals & Member - space electronics, space bass & space vocals... and what did we do together? Yeah, right we make space music... Space Space Space Sound, it's Astrosound.
It was like nothing had happened in the least twelve years. There was this big and neverending spaced out soundworm, that threw you out of the window into the farest galaxy there no man has been before. A Cosmic Journey through time and space. Cosmic Music like it was, is and will be...

This is our first rehearsal, we will do some more and then we will make some concerts, time will tell.

So jump into the newest chapter of Astrosound and capture this cosmic journey in two parts.

Here It Is:

Part 1

Part 2

Stolle & Member - P.U.P. (Permanent Update Process) Edition #1

Dear listeners, today we start a series of brandnew Stolle & Member recordings. We will beginn slowly and it will take its time until you will hear its full scale.
During our recent sessions, we decided to push our musicmaking to a new level, and so we invented Permanent Update Process (P.U.P.), a new way of recording, editing and releasing music. We thought that it is high time to let some innovation into this, after all we consider us avantgarde,hehe. So after you have a look at our very trashy youtube video, you can listen to these first mp3 recordings, that we made by the way. This is some outtake material, first takes, basic tracks - untouched mp3 Quality. We also did an album's worth of multitrack stuff, which we intend to release in the future, while the process of editing and mixing is still going on.

Have fun & enjoy

Heimchensommer - Our Work Is Still in Progress

We are still here and we preparing for new Stolle & Member Recordings in the next week.
Meanwhile I start my new recording tool again today, a Zoom R16 Recorder and made a Egomania Track. It's a freaky folky trash affair... I made music with some "Heimchen", a sort of cricket.
I played acoustic guitars, tambura, accordion and diarmonica, while the "Heimchen" quirk and some obscure short movies of David Lynch played in the backround.

I dedicated this song to Katja.

Stolle & Member - Low On Battery (2009)

From some kind of view we were low on battery in 2009. Stolle & Member didn't work much as a duo in the last year. So here are the collected Stolle & Member Recordings from 2009.

Track 1 - Low on Battery (Sister Ray) was a telephone session in october, there we try to record some Sister Ray Session via phone, but Stolles Recording Unit was low on battery and so I took over to save a part of it. A great VU Cover lofi acoustic adventure.

The other two tracks are recordings from the last two MIRG meetings. Its some kind of tradition in the last years, that Stolle & Member come a bit earlier and stay a bit longer on MIRG meetings, so we can glide perfectly in and out of the process. Sometimes we made some Stolle & Member in these times, for excample LIVE AUS DER KÜCHE DES REUSCHBERGS happened like this.

Track 2 - Drop Out was a real Stolle & Member freak out on the "Über der Schmiede" Workshop in October 2008. Member played far out noise organ and structure master Stolle played bass and sang.... We chased the two others out of the room with this ecstatic piece.

Track 3 - Hell Bent For Leather was the Stolle & Member Farewell Piece on the last MIRG Workshop. A very cosmic experience with traces of Heavy Metal.

Come an get it here...
