      Sans Serif is the name under which World Ambient multi-instrumentalist
      Forrest Fang releases his Minimalist inspired music. The five compositions
      on UNBOUND (57'23") each explore a distinctive atmosphere. With their
      gradually shifting timbral planes, slowly falling contours and steady
      permutations between light and dark sounds, the pieces occupy space much
      like cloud cover in an ever-changing overcast sky. Without the
      well-defined reference points of melody, harmony or a discernable rhythm,
      listening is a pure experience - with all narrative or meaning derived
      entirely by the listener. The primary objective of UNBOUND is to realize
      music through variations and changes in texture. With its long tones and
      metallic soundscapes Sans Sarif generates a work without crescendo,
      noticeable highs or lows, nor a beginning, middle or end. It may be barely
      perceived - at the periphery of our attention, or carefully scrutinized.
      This is Ambient Music at its most absolute.

      Tune in to STAR'S END this weekend for music from Sans Serif (Forrest
      Fang's Minimalist alter-ego) and his second CD UNBOUND

        Taking one's self out of the compositional process is truly the way to
        realize Ambient Music. Fortunately for Spacemusic fans David Arkenstone
        did not follow this edict on his CD AMBIENT WORLD. A creative constant in
        the field of New Age and Contemporary Instrumental, Arkenstone here
        focuses his ample talents on a decidedly more textural, atmospheric and
        cerebral style. Rather than continually trying to keep up with the
        public's imagination, this work offers such traditional musical values as
        beauty and order. Using bold simplified forms to infuse his music with
        dramatic monumentality, Arkenstone captures moments of solitude as he
        achieves an understated sonic poetry. With its mesmerizing swirl of
        pulsing synthesizers, whooshing keys and twanging guitar AMBIENT WORLD
        possesses an impressive sonic sheen, yet it feels pared down to
        essentials. From robot riffs and electro-thrum to the dreamy inwardness of
        private reverie, the listener wades through an ever-changing musical
        current. Arkenstone finds emotional resonance in sounds from a more subtle
        palate - using them to create a spacey atmosphere that is refreshing. But
        underneath all the blissed out textures is a friendly, pleasant consonance
        and a practiced sense of composition. The resulting album offers us a
        mystical bridge between our world and the greater cosmos - as its music,
        or at least a redeeming impression, will linger on in the listener's mind.

        double CD AMBIENT WORLD

          With FIELD OF WORLDS AND MIRRORS (45'02") Vic Hennegan builds on the
          success of his albums "Aqua Vista" (2008) and "Desert God" (2004).
          Continuing a brilliant musical output, Hennegan's work departs somewhat
          from Spacemusic's focus on the artist's internal state to also reference
          the external world. His music captures the spirit of innovation,
          technology and all the positive aspects of our modern age. An analogue
          seed grown in a digital garden, the past is at his back - pushing. The
          music ramps up and winds down in wonderfully dramatic cycles. Hennegan
          produces enough extra twists, turns and innovations to make FIELD OF
          WORLDS AND MIRRORS original. Synthetic sonorities pulse with energy as
          sequencer patterns echo and churn beneath heroic lead melodies. Exotic
          modulations flutter above the sigh of warm chords while drums swing in a
          cerebral backbeat. Hennegan's music is a complicated interplay between an
          ingrained pop sensibility and expansive cosmic yearning - and should be
          celebrated for its big-hearted intelligence. His masterfully multi-layered
          music creates a world alluringly suspended between the dancefloor and the
          cosmos.

          Vic Hennegan live on STAR'S END 04.17.11

          Vic Hennegan's compositions combine influences from the worlds of Prog,
          Techno, New Age, Ambient, Space, Electronic and World Music into a most
          distinctive music. Performing with the confidence of the musically well
          traveled, he mixes his experiences into vivid sonic statements. As
          contemplative as it is celebratory, this work crosses many levels and
          degrees of energy.

          Vic Hennegan returns to STAR'S END for his second live on-air concert on
          the 04.17.11 broadcast. Please tune in for more.

            ARCTISONIA (72'47") is the seventh album in the superb discography of
            Jeffrey Koepper. Based on an arctic theme, this CD offers the listener
            seven tracks of frozen atmospheres, cold textures and icy forms - all
            realized with classic analogue synth sounds. Including gear by Moog, ARP,
            Sequential Circuits, Oberheim, Roland, Yamaha and many others from a
            bygone era, the equipment list reads like a keyboard catalogue from the
            1970-80s. While Jean Michel Jarre and Michael Garrison seem to hover over
            his music Koepper communes with his machines in a fight against the notion
            that this genre belongs to history rather than the present. He knows well
            the territory of plugs, cables and jacks and crafts a pleasing palate of
            unique electronic tones. Upon this foundation a great deal of sonic
            architecture may be constructed. At the center of this musical world are
            syncopated sequencer rhythms. With our focus deepening on these exquisite
            rippling pulsations the parallel narratives of the multi-layered patterns
            are discerned. Koepper's personal philosophy may be heard in the pulsing
            and pumping notes running in mechanical precision, which is where this
            music seems to "think". Attention is also paid to other aural aspects
            beyond that of pulse. Chirping modulations underline sustaining
            synth-string chords and tuneful melodies. A growling drone-bass fills the
            lower register as leadlines play rapidly above. ARCTISONIA explores many
            moods and colors as it re-interprets something classic. Jeffrey Koepper
            composes music that captures the spirit of innovation, technology and an
            era where the use of the imagination was paramount. His works provide more
            than ambiance - this music provokes thought.

            Tune in to STAR'S END this weekend for new music by Jeffrey Koepper and
            his CD ARCTISONIA

              SONIC FRONTIERS I: AMBIENT DREAMSCAPES (60'05") is the inaugural anthology
              CD released by the Wayfarer Records label. Containing music by eight
              notable artists this compilation demonstrates the breadth of the
              Ambient/Spacemusic community. Each track possesses its own distinctive
              color and tone, due mainly to the many different approaches and mindsets
              represented here, so no two sound remotely alike. Yet as different as
              these artists are from each other they all work quite well next to one
              another - and demonstrate the existence of an innovative and diverse
              community. SONIC FRONTIERS I: AMBIENT DREAMSCAPES begins with "The Highest
              Cloud" by Ombient. Getting back to basics Michael Hunter plays endlessly
              looping guitar textures in what feels like an ambient ceremony. From this
              churning stasis rises "Passage" by The Tangent Project. Synthesist Jeff
              Coulter and guitarist Harrison McKay create a mysterious and minimal
              spacescape based in both classic Spacemusic ideals and New Age pleasure.
              Their track quietly and elegantly changes shape as it slowly drifts
              through the listening space. Boreal Taiga's "Bjørnøya" gives this CD some
              momentum with slowly skipping synth patterns running amidst mellow
              metallic rhythms and a warm electronic drone. Most lovely and ethereal is
              "Isois" by EchoHALO which layers delicate tones to build a briefly
              achieved beautiful sonic environment. With "To the Titanic" Dave Luxton
              provides enough grand chords and watery effects to have us feel many
              fathoms beneath the sea. Feeling the need for some contrast "Marine Layer"
              by Ambient Research Collective wanders along a strange arc. With rough
              timbres rubbing against a languid bassline and sweet chords this track
              offers much to ponder. A solo realization by Jeff Coulter reveals a
              dramatic narrative - as chirping and ticking e-percussion wind out within
              big organ harmonies and sweeping synth pads. The album concludes with
              "Spider God" by Sanity Generator, a somewhat precarious composition full
              of recurring synthesized shrieks and deep humming drones. With the ending
              of SONIC FRONTIERS I: AMBIENT DREAMSCAPES such an open-ended matter
              listeners will happily seek out the next installment in this well-done
              anthology series.

              exploring his more ethereal side producing the weekly radio program Music
              with Space for WPRB Princeton, Hunter creates improvised soundscapes with
              a Warr Touch Guitar - a metal stringed guitar-like instrument designed for
              two-handed playing and extended sound generation. His solo live in-studio
              on-air radio concerts for STAR'S END also include sounds made with
              traditional electric guitar as well as software, digital and anaolgue
              synthesizers. Hunter's live music spans the Space, Ambient, Experimental
              and New Age genres.

                When we think about Public Radio, most of us envision something
                intelligent and smart. NPR, PRI and other national distribution
                organizations provide radio stations and listeners with a range of highly
                regarded news and public affairs programs as well as numerous musical and
                entertainment offerings of exceptional quality. Clearly, we know that
                everything about Public Radio is smart - with the exception of how it
                raises money. Public Radio gives away its programs for free, then asks
                listeners to pay for content voluntarily. This is quite a "unique"
                business model. Cinemas do not ask patrons to pay for their ticket after
                the movie has played. Cable companies do not ask clients to pay for their
                service only if they like what they have watched. Restaurants do not ask
                diners to pay what they felt the meal was worth. Yet Public Radio stations
                give away their programs and shows over the airwaves for free, only asking
                at some point later for listeners to please support their activities
                through the generosity of free will donations - and as unbelievable as it
                sounds, thanks to you this system seems to work out OK.

                If you had to pay for what you hear on Public Radio, would you? For
                example, if you had to pay $60.00 for a year's worth of STAR'S END - that
                would be $1.15 per broadcast, under 25 cents an hour, would you pay? The
                answer is absolutely yes, you would gladly pay this small amount of money
                in order to hear STAR'S END!

                During the 05.08.11 broadcast of STAR'S END you will be asked to place a
                value on your relationship with WXPN. STAR'S END, SLEEPY HOLLOW, HIGHS IN
                THE 70s and ECHOES may best align with your interests, but the radio
                station also programs many other worthwhile shows such as the MORNING SHOW
                with Michaela Majoun and WORLD CAFE with David Dye. Your generous act will
                fund Public Radio station WXPN and indicates that you are among a select
                few who are serious about this unique radio station and the amazing range
                of music it presents.

                Public radio relies on its listeners for its faith in the future. WXPN
                Membership begins at just $60. Calling in with a pledge at this level (or
                an amount that best reflects your feelings towards STAR'S END) helps us
                meet the Spring fund drive goals. The donations made during the
                fundraisers are so important. STAR'S END and WXPN are very grateful to
                hear from you! Thank you for tuning in, and then phoning in to the STAR'S

                  If we only paid attention to music made by Steve Roach and Erik Wollo we
                  would still have a lot to choose from. Between the two of them they have
                  released dozens upon dozens of amazing space, ambient and contemporary
                  instrumental albums. Each made their mark both as innovator and visionary
                  and their surprising endurance in a world not ready for space-time players
                  has thankfully lead them together into two musical collaborations thus
                  far. THE ROAD ETERNAL (63'28") is their second CD as a duo - and feels
                  much different than their first, "Stream of Thought" (2009). The six
                  tracks are longer time-wise, as these beautiful realizations stretch out
                  along a contour of hidden designs. The pieces develop fast, with
                  reverberant synthesizer chords giving way to synchronized grooves. With
                  the introduction of mechanized patterns and the resulting restless energy,
                  space and time are seemingly transformed. Extending above the building
                  electric tension are rich melodic lines - whose slow pacing leaves plenty
                  of air for churning e-riffs and commanding basslines to motor onward. THE
                  ROAD ETERNAL, with its breathing thought tones, ethereal leads and
                  unhindered pulsations, produces such aural and emotional wonders - along
                  with the profound images this music awakens in us.

                  Tune in to STAR'S END this weekend for music from THE ROAD ETERNAL the
                  forthcoming CD by Steve Roach and Erik Wollo

                  Richard Lainhart - Live on STAR'S END 05.15.11

                  In his live concerts Richard Lainhart explores tone color through the
                  sophisticated and artistic shaping of sound waves. This minimal music
                  originates from a seemingly minimal set up, at the core of which are the
                  Buchla 200e synthesizer and a Haken Continuum. Coaxing an ever expanding
                  variety of timbres and tones from his gear Lainhart creates an interesting
                  range of music and moods.

                  Synthesist Richard Lainhart makes his Philadelphia concert debut within
                  the remarkable setting of St Mary's Hamilton Village, 3916 Locust Walk on
                  the Penn campus as part of The Gatherings Concert Series on Saturday 14
                  May 2011. Also appearing will be The American Dollar. Following this
                  concert, Lainhart will play a live to air concert on the 05.15.11
                  broqadcast of STAR'S END.

                    With their release THE SUN IS JUST THE SUN, BUT THE STARS THEY CALL THE
                    HEAVENS (67'42") touch guitarist Markus Reuter and multi-instrumentalist
                    Zero Ohms (a.k.a. Richard Roberts) intersect their parallel careers in
                    collaborating and colluding. Each have earned a healthy reputation through
                    their own work, and are known equally well for making music with another.
                    For Reuter it is the likes of Ian Boddy, Robert Rich and Tim Motzer while
                    for Roberts it is Brannan Lane, Craig Padilla and Skip Murphy. On THE SUN
                    IS JUST THE SUN... Roberts and Reuter realize an interesting album
                    spanning the pleasant flute possessed soundscapes on CDs by Zero Ohms and
                    the breathing dreamy drones and distinctively odd dissonance of Reuter's
                    musical expressions. Their teaming together features a wonderful sense of
                    sonic invention as throughout the listening experience a complexity of
                    sounds merge and separate, leaving the listener with a wonderful sense of
                    sonic motion. A few tracks contain straight field recordings skimming a
                    stratum of consonant harmonies - which effectively juxtaposes this music's
                    sense of interiority with the enormity of the outside world. Such
                    communication can be commended for its directness. Other areas become the
                    occasion for reflections of form and space, as mild yet mysterious discord
                    causes tension and anomalous melodies distend across an illimitable
                    distance. Both dramatically dynamic and incredibly subtle, THE SUN IS JUST
                    THE SUN... is no disruptive, disorienting soundtrack for a world in
                    crisis. This music is a demonstration that, even in the midst of a hostile
                    and often uncivilized world, humankind continues the fight to create
                    beauty.

                      LEGACY (79'31") is an album for furious sleepers. Free System Projekt and
                      Gert Emmens provide enough archaic modulations, airborne lead melodies and
                      pulsing sequencer runs to make any night's sleep a dream laden adventure.
                      And truly so, this music did in part originate in the incongruous
                      narratives of the slumbering mind. Early electronic works by Tangerine
                      Dream were an attempt at evoking through sound the same strange
                      feelings-from-the-id surrealists portrayed in their paintings. All these
                      years later their experimental sounds and free form arrangements are now
                      well known, familiar and held as commonplace. As TD and their
                      contemporaries pursued commercial success, the open and innovative music
                      they pioneered was left to bands like Free System Projekt to advance and
                      refine. LEGACY not only hits the Spacemusical mark dead-on, but the group
                      does it live in front of an audience. Featuring three tracks, all recorded
                      live, this CD begins with "Heritage" - a nearly 50 minute mind trip across
                      an improvised synthetic landscape of sustaining drones, interlocking tone
                      patterns and disembodied mellotron flutes, strings and choir. Referencing
                      "Desert Dream", "Departure From the Northern Wasteland" and other cosmic
                      classics, this piece reaches across the decades in an achievement of epic
                      proportions. The title track follows and, recorded at a different concert,
                      comes up with a different feel. Here Gert Emmens joins FSP on drums.
                      Following the contours of the 1976 Klaus Schulze piece "Floating", and
                      benefiting from the liberation found in the live setting, the trio manages
                      to summon the spirited energy of an entire era quite well. The live
                      drumming pulls the piece forward as transposing arpeggi shift artfully
                      beneath an unfurling ribbon of synth lead melodies and the rush of
                      sustaining chords. "Prophesy", the third and final piece, develops fast.
                      With its driving sequencer runs and thumping drums, overlapping keyboard
                      lead lines further enliven this piece. One must not feel guilty about
                      liking this album. Some will call it "nostalgic", and it may be - not
                      because of its obvious musical quotes... but due to the absence of irony,
                      and the overwhelming presence of optimism and hope.

                      Tune in to STAR'S END this weekend for music from LEGACY the new live CD
                      by Free System Projekt and Gert Emmens

                        The film music of Dustin O'Halloran is occasionally mistaken for
                        impressionistic piano works by Erik Satie, while the tracks on his album
                        LUMIERE (43'21") will surely be compared to the ambient chamber music of
                        Tim Story or the minimalistic classicism of Max Richter. O'Halloran's
                        pieces for piano and string ensemble do indeed posses the simplicity,
                        innovative harmonies, freedom of form and musical understatement as those
                        by his older contemporaries. The nine sophisticated, truth-seeking songs
                        on LUMIERE range from sanguine to supernal. At the center of each is
                        O'Halloran's piano, which tells every heartfelt story in melody and tone.
                        The surrounding string section and frequent ethereal effects add
                        interesting textures and layers, but just as easily the piano may go
                        unaccompanied - creating an open and even more intimate space between
                        listener and performer. This is not Ambient Music for the periphery, these
                        compositions beg to be listened to. It has been said that, "music is the
                        shorthand of emotion", and this sensual journey arrives at a place of rare
                        beauty.

                          Somewhere between New Age, Ambient, Contemporary Instrumental and
                          Spacemusic lies TEN YEARS OF DUST (58'01") by Peter G. Brown. While its
                          inviting melodies, evocative atmosphere and perfect concords provide an
                          illuminating encounter, shade occasionally touches the bright tones of
                          this work - and the mood may turn dark and uncertain at any time. Each of
                          the 14 superb tracks conjure up its very own distinctive mood and feeling,
                          yet the overall sense of this music remains unified. Reverberant piano
                          plays across an undulating plane of breathing synthesizer chords as
                          resonant notes ascend along lovely keyboard scales. Unique sounds rise,
                          converge and separate along a gradual linear course. Ethereal voices on
                          one track, rumbling and churning drones on another, there is even an
                          acoustic guitar - this smart album is as lovely as it is interesting.
                          Brown's talent for pacing, contrasting calm against cloudy and arranging
                          pleasant harmonies out of just the right kinds of sounds is what makes TEN
                          YEARS OF DUST a cut above the rest.

                            Saul Stokes makes Electronic Music that sounds like it is coming straight
                            out of the wall outlet. Over the years he has become known for his
                            concerts of sonic improvisation and albums of complex atmospheric energy.
                            His work has always been, and continues to be, based on crafting original
                            sonic elements and forms into beautiful realizations of texture and
                            consonance. More recently Stokes has been embracing his internal
                            contrasts. On SLEEK NUCLEUS (54'42") he produces music that registers in
                            both the body and in the mind. SLEEK NUCLEUS is front-loaded with catchy,
                            engaging tracks - but although this CD's songs may be easier to grasp,
                            this accessibility in no way represents a scaling back of ambition. While
                            overlapping rhythms push SLEEK NUCLEUS to the dance floor, for all its
                            heat and beats the most interesting elements transpire quietly. His
                            one-of-a-kind aural ideals bring a unique aesthetic to the field. This
                            album is full of infectious rhythms, kinetic throbbing and subliminal
                            pulse, but the thoughtful listener will also find grainy tones, chirping
                            modulations and fascinating timbres amidst Stokes' melodic sound designs.
                            Never succumbing to formula, Stokes uses ideas and imagination as maps. He
                            is the musician who speaks most directly to our contemporary condition,
                            but has always been too far out there and unclassifiable to gain the
                            following he deserves. Not one of his works are less than perfect.

                            Tune in to STAR'S END this weekend for music from SLEEK NUCLEUS the new CD

                            Upon listening to the first track on RADIANT SKY (59 38 ) one might imagine that this was something inadvertently left off of a Patrick O Hearn album. But as

                              Upon listening to the first track on RADIANT SKY (59'38") one might
                              imagine that this was something inadvertently left off of a Patrick
                              O'Hearn album. But as the CD plays on we hear the author Scott August move
                              from the opening piece's spacious drones, breathing guitar and dramatic
                              combining of grand piano with grave percussive rumbling to a more
                              expansive musical palette. It turns out that this music's decisive element
                              is the Native American flute - and is prominently featured on just about
                              every track. There is also present a fair amount of lush synthesizer
                              tones, exotic percussion and steely acoustic guitar, but it is August's
                              flute playing that leads the listener to RADIANT SKY's beautiful reality.
                              From reverberant ceremonial soloing, to fuller, radiantly colored
                              instrumentals, these ten compositions have the ability to, in some places
                              evoke stillness, while in others offer heart-pumping inspiration. But
                              August mostly keeps this a quiet work written in simple strokes - and the
                              world of Contemporary Instrumental music is all the better for it.
