    - english translation below -

    Die Geschichte der Beziehung von Mensch und Maschine ist eine Geschichte der symbolischen Deutung und Gestaltung dieser Beziehung. Auf der dritten Ausgabe der Ultra Dark Radio – Compilation Serie geht es allerdings weniger um omnipotente Gefühle, sondern vielmehr um den Gegensatz verschiedenster musikalischer Stilrichtungen. So toben sich auf dem ersten Teil der Zusammenstellung vorwiegend Maschinen aus, während Teil 2 handgemachte Gitarrenklänge ans Ohr der Fans bringt.

    Damit sind dann auch die Gegensätze aufgezeigt, die sich in der nunmehr schon 2 Jahre währenden Zusammenarbeit der beiden Internetradios Ultra Dark Radio und darkerradio ergaben. Und sich vor allem hervorragend ergänzten…

    Und so tummeln sich mit Taxim, Wynardtage, T.H.Industry, davoS, Decence, Warforge, DEN.C.T.BUG, Isis Signum feat. Sara Noxx, davaNtage, Dolls of Pain, Advocatus Diaboli, Arts of Erebus…

  • Playlist: Konzeptlos vom 12.06.2007

    13 Jun 2007, 11:10 by darkerradio

    Freibier für Alle!

    So dann das kurzfristige Motto der gestrigen Sendung. Nachdem ich dies ja vor einiger Zeit schonmal androhte, mal eine Sendung ausschliesslich mit frei im Netz herunterladbarer Musik zu gestalten, hab ich dieser Drohung nun die Sendung folgen lassen. Den Unterschied zu den Free Music Charts hab ich dann gestern auch recht ausführlich erläutert. Nur soviel hier noch dazu: Im Gegensatz zu CC-lizensierter Musik sind die meisten Stücke hier lediglich für den privaten Gebrauch frei. Verlinken auf die Downloads geht völlig in Ordnung, die Files aber selbst auf Webseiten oder in Tauschbörsen anbieten wiederum nicht. Einige Stücke haben wir auch exclusiv für darkerradio freigegeben bekommen - was nur zeigen soll, wer fragt, bekommt oft genug das Okay der Urheber.

    Hier also noch die Playlist, Links zu weiteren Infos und zu den Songs:

    01. Neon Zoo - Monster 05:14 (Info | MP3)
    02. darkerradio - Falk - Konzeptlos (und das ist hier Konzept) 01:06
