NEW ALBUM “Until We’re Gone” available for pre-order!

Is it an ambient album? Electronica? Music for elevators, shopping malls or – sorry Brian Eno – airports? Boring frippery? Music to fall asleep? Any electronic music that does not fit in any drawer? A stroke of genius? Psychoactive music with more chord changes than in Bach’s most popular pieces?

It’s all that, depending on the listener.

In the past few years, Ingo Vogelmann has studied the influence of music on the human psyche, working with frequencies, chords and timbres and with hypnotists and “commissioned music” for therapists who have successfully treated clients with this music. A certain part of this material can be found in this album.

None of the songs claim to have a classical song structure, or even a conventional duration. They are extremely long, because that can serve a purpose if the listener allows themselves to get involved. Each song has constantly changing chord progressions, but they are always harmonious and often reminiscent of classical works by the great composers of yesteryear.

“Until We’re Gone” is not a work in which Ingo wants to prove technical finesse. There are other pieces for that. The focus of this album is on the composition and the ability of the music to put the listener in a special state.

This music picks up seekers who are willing to get involved in something new.

[Past Perfect] Volume 2 – A journey through the past

So what is that?

Anyone born in the early ’70’s ​​(or earlier) has experienced this era when House and Techno established themselves on the worldwide charts and became one of the biggest and most successful music movements in history. Computer technology and synthesizers made it possible to create a hitherto unknown music, which at the time was still pressed onto records (or acetate), so that you could mix this music as a DJ in clubs, at a time when the CD was the most important musical medium of the time.

I have fully experienced this time, both as a clubber and as a DJ. For me, this incredible and crazy journey started in 1992, and shortly afterwards I also put on the first records myself. Now more 25 years have passed — a quarter of a century — and for me the music of that time has not lost its strength at all. Of course, many memories are linked to it, some of which I think back with sparkling eyes. We were young, we were free (at least we had that impression), and the drugs were excellent, I’ve been told…*

*I do not want to promote drug use. Please handle drugs carefully! Best not to start it. But if, then be careful.

I have been able to make countless friendships in the scene over the last 25 years, and I know some of my closest friends from that time. My own career as a musician grew out of the tender beginnings of this music. I grew up with rock music and always wanted to be a rock star before, suddenly I discovered a completely new music that I initially did not like. Electronically produced music was not my thing, I only liked handmade music, that was the “real deal” for me. But it didn’t take long before this music cast a spell over me.

What did I do here?

In the last few months, I have picked out records that I consider the most important and best of that time. Here and there I had to ask friends if they could provide me with digital recordings from vinyl, because I did not own much of the material myself anymore. After I had everything digitally available, I carefully (re)mastered each track, always staying close to the original, I didn’t want destroy that special “feeling” of that time. Not that it’s much important to you, probably, but I also pitch-corrected tracks that were slightly “off key”, partly because of unstable vinyl recordings or issues with the production itself. Back then not everything was 100%, especially not when producers used analog synths.

After improving the music, I made a DJ mix out of it in my studio. And the result is now available to you, as a lossless FLAC file. You have never heard that music in a better sound quality!

That’s why I call this mix series “Past Perfect”, because that’s what it is for me. Talking about “series”… this is the second and final installment. Here is the first one.

LIGHTWORKS & TIME OUT Playlists on Spotify

It’s on (like Donkey Kong)!

I programmed my own algorithm that only picks the music that I love and that reflects the sound of the shows. New music added automatically every Friday!

LIGHTWORKS tracks: ingovogelmann.net/lws (re-direction to the Spotify playlist)

TIME OUT tracks: ingovogelmann.net/tos (re-direction to the Spotify playlist)

“What the…?” you might think. This is the deal:

I (very) often get asked why I throw all my favorite music into one playlist, which would be this one: ingovogelmann.net/ivmc (“Ingo Vogelmann’s Medicine Cabinet”). Because most of you either like electronic music or hand-made music (like neo-classic, rock etc.), which I personally both like the same, along with a huge plethora of other music. That playlist is what I personally listen to most of the time I listen to music. I’m not very narrow-minded when it comes to music, and other things. There’s beauty in a lot of things out there.

Now, with the new playlists you can choose for yourself, at least between the dance and the chilled side of things (I might add playlist for rock or neo-classic and other genres in the future). Plus, the tracks featured in the new playlists are almost exactly what I would and do play on my LIGHTWORKS and TIME OUT shows/podcasts (if you like to call it that, or whatever), minus the unreleased promos, of course.

Go, head over to those playists, check them out and subscribe!

LIGHTWORKS tracks: ingovogelmann.net/lws (re-direction to the Spotify playlist)

TIME OUT tracks: ingovogelmann.net/tos (re-direction to the Spotify playlist)

“PARANO” Film I Scored Music for Wins “The Van Leer Award for Best Director of a Documentary” at Jerusalem Film Festival

Parano Film PosterHuge congratulations to Ariel Semmel, who won “The Van Leer Award for Best Director of a Documentary” at Jerusalem Film Festival!

Despite having only contributed a small portion of music to “PARANO” for Isreali director and friend Ariel Semmel, I’m proud and happy to hear that my music got amazing reviews.

Ariel: “Your music captures everybody in the beginning of the film!”

Official Trailer

 

It’s a great gain to be working with Ariel, who’s a professional with every fiber in his body. His film is touching, shocking, emotional, brutally honest and the some of bravest self-exposures I have ever witnessed. When I watched one of the earlier edits of the film — in order to prepare myself for the music to be written — I needed days to process what I had seen, the movie’s that intense.

You might think from the “cover of the book”, this movie is about a distraught guy who thinks he’s been abducted by aliens. Not even close. This movie is much more than that. It touched me every second, frame by frame.

For Ariel I wish that PARANO gets the attention and rewards it deserves. Go check out details about the film here:
