Peter Gagliardi has been composing electronic soundtrack music on the side since 2006, heavily influenced by space, science, sci-fi and video games.

Released on October 25th, 'Unfold the Universe' takes its inspiration from the James Webb Telescope.

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) was launched on December 25, 2021 - expressly designed to provide data to scientists that could lead to breakthroughs about the Universe around us. It is focused on observing light in the near and mid-infrared bands of the light spectrum, where we are able to see beyond the interference of intergalactic dust.

It was designed to Unfold the Universe!

The first images taken in its fully deployed, fully calibrated state were released on July 12, 2022. These first five images, along with 3 others released subsequently, have been used as inspiration for each of the tracks in "Unfold the Universe".

Transfer to new server: MPR Chill's current server will be depreciated on November 30th. Our new server is now on the air and fully functional. However, the unfortunate consequence is the new stream address will need adding to your bookmarks and media players. It also means streaming platforms will need updating, which will take time.

The new stream addresses are as follows:

The latest album 'Azaran Forecast' by The Polymusicon is now featuring on Moon Phase Radio.

+


The Polymusicon is the music project of Graeme Nattress. "Starting in 2016, I wanted to create music that used sequences to flow between melody and ambient texture. My first album Evalake was released in November 2019, and almost immediately I began work on this, Azaran Forecast, my 2nd album."

Graeme says of his latest album:

"I took inspiration from the clearly differentiated seasons we enjoy in Southern Ontario: The winter can be long, but it always brings varied weather and the sounds of nature take on a new dimension in the bitterly cold air. The dynamics of this icy season are reflected in Diamond Dust.

Antheia came from enjoying the crab apple trees in our garden that flower for only a few days every spring. Even before you are standing beneath the trees now bursting with flowers, all you can hear is the steady hum of the bees.

The days of summer are long and bright, but with a good glass of whisky in hand, time flows rapidly. Theros stretches time in the same way.

On Manitoulin Island (largest lake island in the world) there is a lake, and on that lake is an island... Recursive Island takes this concept and my holiday trips there into musical form."

New EP, '+28º 1′ 34′′ (Pollux) by The Arnoux Experience, now featuring on Moon Phase Radio.

Arnoux cover blog

The Arnoux Experience

Arnoux, is a character seen for the first time on February 1, 2014 in a theatre in the capital of Ecuador.

Harold Granda identifies with him, adopts his name and his personality, which would be reflected in his first works as a solo musician, these themes being super dark, mostly improvisations, writings he saw in dreams, which spoke of introspective themes that they never saw the light of day except to a very small audience (his few friends). Over time Arnoux continued to release instrumental music, because he did not need words to express what he felt, only sounds, the genres he explored are rock, psychedelia, krautrock and ambient.

In 2016, he entered the world of creating music for theatre and short films, this being the path he would follow until today. His first EP called "Ser" is made up of 3 instrumental songs, “Alfarero” “Corroer” and “Celestial”.
In that same year, he created the music for the short film "Red Boots", an entry in the Adobe Creative contest.

In 2018, he ventures into the musicalization of a fantasy work called "Lluvia de Sueños", the same work that has travelled to different parts of Ecuador.

He is currently launching his second EP called “+28º 1′ 34′′ (Pollux)”, an album with the sole purpose of reaching a state of pure relaxation capable of lulling the viewer to sleep and exploring the dark world of dreams, trying thus their deepest traumas to heal them slightly.

The latest album 'Origins Unknown' from Terminus Void is now featuring on Moon Phase Radio.

1983 would be a monumental moment when J. Ronald Smith, an American electronic music Composer based in Seattle, Washington, was introduced to the nationally syndicated radio program, Hearts of Space, created by Stephen Hill. Smith was awe inspired by the music composers such as Micheal Stearns, Brian Eno, Steve Roach and Evangelos Papathanassiou of Vangellis.


Hill’s early broadcasts of these electronic music pioneers instilled a passion for Smith and opened a window of possibilities for him in this new experimental genre of music. In 2021, Smith founded Terminus Void to share this passion that has been nearly 40 years in the making.


In November of the same year, Smith released Terminus Void’s debut album, Interstellar, and can be heard on all the major music streaming platforms around the world. Additionally, the album is available in compact disk format on online and select local retailers.


On April 1, 2022, Smith came full circle when Interstellar was featured on the Hearts of Space broadcast, transmission No. 1314 entitled “Stellar Quest” hosted by creator, Stephen Hill.


Smith released his follow-up album, Origins Unknown, on April 25, 2022 and is currently working on new music.

New single 'Forgive' by downtempo chill producer Liminka now featuring on Moon Phase Radio.

Liminka blog resize
Liminka blog resize
+


Rising downtempo chill producer Liminka will be releasing his sophomore single, ‘Forgive’ on the 1st of April via Deep Heads. The song follows the release of ‘Where Are You Now’, his debut single under the Liminka alias, which was supported by Stereofox. The producer has previously released work under the Sidi alias, for which he received support from XLR8R. Liminka’s music touches on many different influences across the electronic music spectrum.

Born in Finland, raised in Germany, and currently based in Austria, Andreas Kühn has entered the world of music under numerous names, the latest being Liminka. As a teenager, he played drums and saxophone in a few bands but became more serious about creating music when he discovered music production software at the age of 16, after which he would begin to incorporate both the guitar and rolling electronic elements into his work. The ever-evolving producer studied Electroacoustic Composition at Bauhaus University in Weimar and Music Technology in Helsinki.

Within his latest single, the listener can hear that Liminka is influenced by deep, immersive electronic producers with an ear for detail and raw emotion-driven music. While creating the atmospheric track, the producer found inspiration in the works of Boards of Canada, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Bonobo, David Holmes and Fennesz to name a few. His own sound would like itself at home next to the likes of Bonobo, Massive Attack and Portico Quartet on any lo-fi collector’s shelf.

Within ‘Forgive’ we can find the theme of detailed, expressive electronic music which makes it a stand-out track from the upcoming EP. It starts off with light strokes of pads in the recording that perfectly fit the drums, with the baseline slotting into the mix with ease as the track continues. As the track progresses, all parts become more intense and immersive, highlighted by masterfully mixing. A touch of sheer class on this one.

Speaking of the single, Liminka tells us: “This song was written during a difficult phase in a relationship. I wanted to make something that carried sadness and heaviness, and how these feelings can turn into actual conflicts when they’re not expressed. At the end of the song, I wanted to give this feeling of guilt and sorrow after a big fight, like someone saying “I’m so sorry” after the damage has already been done.”

Based in Brisbane, Australia, Richard Dart is an established electronic and ambient music artist.

In Richards own words, "Pretty much all the tracks are drone or pulse instrumentals using synths, guitars, percussion, effects and samples. I find drones simultaneously simple and complicated, if that makes any sense. You start with a sustained or repeated note or chord and then build around it to try and make it somewhat pleasurable to listen to. In the main, musically, I was aiming for a kind of synth heavy version of drone metal/dark ambient."
