Editorial

Happy New Year to all of you!
There are some updates to this ambient music blog: first of all I'd like to welcome Christine Hager as a guest author. I'm very pleased by her first contribution, a review about trance/chill artist OM from Chile. I hope she'll write some more in the future. Thank you very much, Christine!
If you want to contribute either as an artist and/or reviewer, please get in touch via contact@darage-bang.com
I usually tried to publish monthly on a regular basis, but this didn't work, due to lack of time. So, there will be fewer, but more regular new posts and I hope I'll be able to keep up a constant flow of new reviews.
Finally, I hope you like the new design.

Frank, January 2015

About the Blog

This blog is dedicated to ambient music, experimental music and all the other sounds from all over the world, which do not fit in the mainstream, which are a bit strange or weird, unrecognized and made by misfits exploring the fringe of musical composition and beyond the horizon of ambient music. On this ambient music review site, you'll find features, spotlights and interviews on new and inspiring album releases, artists, music gear and music related literature. And a little bit of my own stuff ;-)   For any questions, suggestions or critics, get in touch :-)

about.me

Frank Meyer

Frank Meyer

Creating things since 1969.

Well, in the first one or two years, I mainly created poop. But I early realized that I suffer from the creative itch. I always felt the urge to free my imagination and ideas from the prison of my mind and make them become real. Or at least materialize it in our threedimensional world, which seems to be somehow different. Either as modifications of light in form of color, art and graphics or as modifications of air, such as music and sound.

And I need to eat, drink and sleep. Therefore I have a job which supports these needs as good as possible. And I use the biggest part of my spare time to do the rest.

By day I'm a senior art director in an advertising agency.

By night I make music.

Still trying to figure out what about.me is good for :-/

Drone music album – Voices in the Mist by Darage Bang

Voices in the Mist by Darage Bang Simply following pictures of my imagination and the keyword “Fog” in mind, the album is a dark and melancholic drone music composition. The mind wanders through lonesome woods and along abandoned paths. The perfect soundtrack for long and dark autumn [...]
