It took a couple of years, but finally the Dutch have completed their investigation concerning the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. The plane crashed in Ukraine during the Russian intervention there a bit over two years ago. There were no survivors.
This is what happens when two psybient titans collaborate. This song is chilled-out and in the same time body-moving. Behind this multilayered masterpiece there is a distinct mystical feeling, so… here’s a little magic to bless the week with.
I’ve featured both Desert Dwellers and Kalya Scintilla before and if you like what you hear, make sure you check Bluetech and Kaminanda out as well. Good listening gear, eyes closed highly recommended.
How about a detachable apartment? You come, you visit and then you take the daily truck, moving you to wherever you wish. While being transported, you sit in your comfortable home, doing whatever you wish to do.
This melody scores an excellent 8.5 out of 10 on the CES. That’s the Closed Eyes Scale, which measures how awesome a song can be when experienced eyes closed and with some good listening gear. Space rock titans Ozric Tentacles are back on the menu.
The self-driving vehicle revolution is upon us and it brings with it some serious challenges. One such conundrum is just how much control will we give over to our vehicles. Recently, we’ve had the first fatality resulting from the use of this family of technologies. However, it’s important to note that the car wasn’t really self-driving.
The person died due to the (presumably) improper use of the Autopilot feature. Before we rush to blame Tesla, we’ll see why this sort of half-measure is quite dangerous. Let’s take a look at what another industry that has been using autopilot features for decades has learned during time.
Get ready for a unique blend of electronic music. It starts with a bang and then immediately quiets down, perhaps a sign of things to come? Through beautifully chosen vocal samples, it gently goes on its way, building up intricate soundscapes. Diverse, enjoyable and action-packed, this melody has quite a personality.
Welcome to mid-2016. Science and technology have progressed immensely. Are we on the brink of a new golden age, or is it all just clever brain-washing? Are we on the brink of war, or is it just the same old game of measuring who has the bigger gun? Are we going to vote in the next Hitler and give up our privacy, praying for protection from Big Brother? Or are we going to sit down at the same table with our worst enemies and enact sweeping social and political changes?
At the crossroads between old and new, wonders can happen. This song showcases Delerium’s transformation from an interesting electronic music act into a new age wonder that fuses dance music with stellar vocal performances and surreal lyrics.
From the very beginning, whispers and choirs ease the listener into a mystic mood. And then, seemingly out of nowhere, the drum machine kicks in and the body wants to join the dance. Groovy and mysterious, hopeful and solemn, this melody has a flow like few others. It is the perfect opener for “Semantic Spaces”, one of the best Delerium albums (and one of my all-time favorites).
Being an activist has never been easy. Even in the 21st century, the death sentence for speaking the wrong words can be delivered unexpectedly by those that happen to disagree for whatever reason. This happens despite millennia of social development, now culminating with a sharp rise in our ability to exercise the right for free speech thanks to the Internet.
Last month, just before UK’s referendum on whether or not they should stay in the European Union, a member of parliament was killed, probably because she was holding peaceful views in a country that is increasingly dominated by hate. Jo Cox was stabbed, shot, and then stabbed again, in a horrifying illustration of how the wrong politics and education have mutilated our society.
Imagine a deserted beach. Imagine the blue waves, imagine a white sky, imagine a lonely guitar with emerald chords, imagine a ruby piano. Imagine seagulls gliding in the air, no effort at all, just waltzing in wind’s embrace. If there’s anything that can be said about this song is that it’s the spark that lights the fire of our imagination. Deep inside the mind, there’s a pyre made up of the thoughts that sometimes suffocate the purity of our soul. So let it burn, let unknowing innocence spread its wings, let go…
