Pitchfork Magazine reports about his passing here.
Many thanks to my friend, Michael Schneider, for posting this video, which we share in Holger’s honor.
Rest in peace.
Beyond Beyond is Beyond has begun to carve a place for themselves as the premier prog-psych record label in the United States. Their catalog features acts like Japan’s Kikagaku Moyo, Brooklyn’s Ancient Ocean and many others. This compilation is a great way to introduce yourselves to their racket.
Alessandro Cortini is an Italian composer and keyboardist based in Los Angeles. He’s an occasional member of Nine Inch Nails, and makes quite a good company man working with Trent Reznor in a style reminiscent of the 1980s Belgian Hard Beat scene, but on his own, he veers off into Kosmische Musik territory, reminding one of artists like Klaus Schulze in this track.
I thank my old friend Mileta of the ever-stunning Serbian-language music blog valtazarzauberquelle, who turned me on to a band whom he perfectly described as a Byzantine psychedelic groove band. It’s as if Popol Vuh stumbled into Orthodoxy instead of Eastern mysticism.

To review each and every release by Noël Akchoté would be impossible for this one-man blog to do, but I have the luxury of cherry-picking some real treats. This one, in particular, pairs Noël with Hans-Joachim Roedelius of Cluster fame, as well as a maestro in his own right. The album is a guitar/piano improvisation recorded in Vienna, Austria in 2013. Gentle, plucky sounds which cross into fusion territory at times.
I wish to thank my friend Neea for introducing me to one of the most enjoyable pieces of work I’ve heard in some time, allowing me to get lost in my work. Fans of minimalist composers like Steve Reich and the early Berlin Electronic School of Music will enjoy this. Pahat Kengät sit comfortably between Krautrock, contemporary classical music, New Age and a mellow form of techno.
