• Ambient & Electronica by Michael Brückner - an update

    Ago 21 2014, 13:54 di BruecknerSound

    Dear electronica fans,

    after a rather long absence from LastFM (may have been three years or even more) I'd like to report what happened in the meanwhile in my musical world.

    Since this has been quite a lot, I'll try to keep everything as brief as I can, rather hinting with some links at single events; if anyone should have any further questions, I'll be happy to elaborate in detail on anything, if requested...

    For those who don't remember me here (...or never heard of me in the first place) a brief introduction:

    I'm composing, producing and performing electronic music since 1992. While the center of my creative output is certainly ambient / atmospheric electronica, I've also streched out to any other electronic style I can think of, for example dance, drum'n'bass, new age, electro, Berlin School (space music), or those new names for old shoes like psychill, psybient or psytrance - but also pop, rock, jazz, even metal - and more. …
  • Why I try to support Michael Brückner

    Ago 9 2010, 13:03 di GauchundSchlom

    About two years ago, a friend recommended the MySpace profile of Michael Brückner to me (www.myspace.com/mbrueckner)
    Michael, who is (like me...) from Germany, produces different kinds of electronic music (but mostly ambient...) in his spare time, actually like many others do.
    My first reactions to his tracks were mixed - a few, I didn't like at all, some were OK, still most actually were great...

    But what really amazed me was to read that Michael had produced more than 80 albums in about 15 years (that was then - at the moment he counts more than 90 albums, with much more music still unreleased...).

    This big number (in such a comparatively short time...) seemed to suggest not only an immense creativity, but also something like a continuos artistic vision, which I didn't seem to sense in the same way with most comparable spare time artists I had known so far.

    Actually, at first I couldn't quite believe it and suspected that he maybe even cheated a little…
  • Michael Brückner - the (nearly) complete catalogue

    Mar 19 2010, 22:54 di BruecknerSound

    This catalogue is at the moment being updated (August 2014)

    Here's a fairly chronoligical list of my productions, with short descriptions. I hope to write a liste with extended descriptions and reviews one day - if I ever find the time to...

    If You are just interested in the albums as such, You can skip the (not complete, but still lengthy) introduction and just scroll down a little bit; however, I would be glad if You would read it, it will tell You a little bit about why I did certain things in the way I did...).

    The album titles are actually linked (as far as possible), so clicking on one should bring You to the corresponding album, here on LastFM in most cases...

    General introduction:

    1.) Availability

    Most of my albums have not been released on a label, with two exceptions so far, most important my recent album "100 Million Miles Under The Stars" on SynGate Records, a small but fine German CD-R label that concentrates on Berlin School style electronica (= similar To Tangerine Dream…
  • Berlin School of Electronic Music & Spacesynth

    Berlin School of Electronic Music

    Старая и Новая Берлинская Школы.

    Классический период - Первая волна
    Возникла в конце 60-ых в Берлине. Это преимущественно секвенсорная музыка с применением аналоговых синтезаторов; очень часто в отношении этого направления вы можете встретить описывающие эпитеты - иллюзорная, психоделическая, ассоциативная, медитативная и так далее. Как правило, это глобальные музыкальные полотна, построенные зачастую на нескольких повторяющихся музыкальных движениях-кольцах, по мере развития, обрастающие яркими выразительными мелизмами с одной или несколькими мелодическими линиями. Примеры: Klaus Schulze, Bernd Kistenmacher, Tangerine Dream, Mario Schoenwaelder, Chuck van Zyl, Bas Broekhuis и так далее. Словами говорить об этом направлении почти бессмысленно. По своей природе и музыкальной эстетике это направление до сих пор является ведущим и наиболее серьезным на современном музыкальном рынке. …
