For our twelfth and final release for the year 2011, we are proud to premiere the very first net label release by adamon. Damon Mar, the man behind the moniker, is a guitarist, synthesist, and electronics instrumentalist that is also a bright engineer with his own synth company called Marsynth. Apart from Damon’s solo work as adamon, he also plays in an experimental duo with David Herpich called Tensor Sensellation, which makes great use of his Marsynth creations.
Ethereal Live is very excited to release “ships”. We were lucky enough to be in the audience when this show took place at the annual Kansas City Electro-Music Festival, which is held each year in July.
“Ships” is an unedited live set, meaning what you hear on this release is exactly as the audience heard it on July 23, 2011. This is actually the original recording from the live set without any additional editing or mastering, which makes this release even that much more incredible.”Ships” is an amazing blending of genres and elements of ambient, noise, experimental, and electronic sounds that is frighteningly original. You will find lots of granular textures, dronescapes, and rhythms and sounds that percolate in and out of the sound field throughout the 43 minute long form set. Damon shows real mastery of subtlety and nuance as this set progresses, modulates, and mutates into many forms. There is lots of ear candy here as well, as adamon has done a great job with spatialization and stereo panning that really knocks this release out of the park.

Ethereal Live returns with our eleventh release from our friend EugeneKha. Evgenij V. Kharitonov hails from the Moscow, Russia region of the planet and is well known as a poet, musician, writer, sound and visual artist. Evgenij has been involved with music and art since the 1980’s and is a heavy experimentalist in every field he participates in. We are very happy to welcome Evgenij to Ethereal Live with this wonderful new release, “Twice The Live.”
Listeners will find a little bit of everything in this album. “Twice The Live” covers a lot of territory in the ambient and electronic domains. The album is composed of two gorgeous longform tracks that swirl and mutate from one sub-genre to the next. The album is a continual shifting of ambient and space music, from moments of tranquil cloud surfing, into berlin-school arpeggiations, environmental sounds, and even sections of beat-oriented ambient electronica. Indeed it seems that there is something for everyone in “Twice The Live”.
