  New album by Son of Ohm: Blackbirds

Two songs recorded live in my studio on two track, in preparation of the live set played at the ‘Electric Spectrum Experience’ June 16, 2018 in Groningen. Blackbirds I actually played at ESE.

Son of Ohm - Blackbirds

T
he Electric Spectrum Experience was great fun. There were some very interested visitors. People that traveled from the other side of the Netherlands and some even coming from Germany or England.

We had some problems with the P.A. in the first half; they appeared to be off... And the only sound we heard came from three stage monitors that were mono as well.... My sound was very shitty. And my performance wasn't where it should be, I was so distracted. There was a horrible loud hum in my guitar sound... The recordings went wrong, the video couldn't be played at first Luckily a friend in the audience came with a solution; he had his laptop and became member of the crew.

Well, it was a very useful experience!! All in all it wasn't too bad, and the audience anticipated very nicely.



I loved to perform on stage. There was so much happening all afternoon, it went by like a blur. Slowly it is sinking in. The nice conversations with visitors, some of them musicians who had experienced all the hassle that performing live electronics brings. The experience of playing with fellow musicians on stage, free improviation. The organisation of an event like this, keeping it all together.

So it really made me thinking. There are many possibilities. I would be a good thing to keep on playing and developing a solid live set. I really feel like approaching this beast with the same attitude I have with Astral Son. It is inside me and has to come out! I can make studio albums forever, and I am very skilled to do so, but I need to step out. There are so many ways.

My setup for the experience!

Next Saturday (16th of June) I will do a live performance at the Electric Spectrum Experience in Groningen. It is going to be a long track in the Berlin School tradition.


Bert Hulshoff ( Phrozenlight), Arend Westra (Eagle) and Gert Blokzijl are going to play solo pieces also. In between we will do jam sessions.
These are all fine musicians who are well known in the international EM scene.
Phrozen Weaver
is a collaboration between Phrozen Light and me.



The Electric Spectrum Experience is a showcase of EM made in the North of the Netherlands. We do believe we have a unique sound because of the landscape and character of the people who live here. We are mostly inspired by the cosmic electronic music made in the seventies. Free flowing soundscaping and sequencing with lots of space for improvisation.

January 2017:
It has been awful quiet around here...Not in my studio. Last year I finished and released another psychedelic Astral Son album on cd & vinyl and made the second Son of Ohm album. The thing is that my studio PC broke down just after finishing the Son of Ohm. I had to get a replacement for the PC. So the mastering for the album has been postponed. I hope to get it done soon!!!

November 2016:
The new organic electronic Son of Ohm album is amazing. It's almost ready. Five analog drenched cosmic songs, only synths, organs, some electric guitar and drum machine. I've been playing around with my new Moog Synthesizer and a sequencer for a nice interactive live feel. Stay tuned!!

Review by Paul Rijkens in iO Pages


Son of Ohm is organic electronic retro futuristic music. Experimental melodic kraut with trippy synth weirdness and electric space guitar magick with a slight psychedelic twist.
