  • water bureau – water bureau – sacred phrases

    $7.00 Add to cart

    In some truly cosmic turn of events, Water Bureau finds Norm Chambers (Panabrite, Jürgen Müller, Spiral Index) and Daryl Groetsch (Pulse Emitter, Space Habitat) teaming up for a series of celestial meanderings that speak to the merits of both Pac-NW synth-heroes. Featuring pieces recorded over two improvised sessions in June 2013 and May 2014 in Daryl’s Portland home studio, ‘Water Bureau’ utilizes a smattering of various synthesizers, sequencers, and effects units with a MIDI connection synchronizing the two players’ instruments. Tracks like “Cascades,” “Black Watch,” “Entering The Grove,” and closer “Low Hours” float in a cosmic drift of warm darkness, illuminated by blipping flashes of color and motionless sound. “Waterfall Dancers,” “Laser Alley,” and “Hiking” play the perfect foil, crashing through a blitz of fluorescent, arpeggiated melodies and sequenced light. Elsewhere, “Dinner’s Ready,” “Horses,” and “Namibia” pay honest and refreshing tribute to Cluster, Harmonia, and other kosmische progenitors of Chambers and Groetsch.

  • pulse emitter – outdoor session – cosmic winnetou

    out of stock

    portland based synthesizer obsessor daryl groetsch toted his gear into his backyard last august for an outdoor session. this was the first time pulse emitter recorded outside. “it was very inspirational. it’s normaliI guess for an acoustic musician to take their stuff outside but not so much for electronic musicians”. groetsch said about the jam. “i had actually played an outdoor fest right around the same time and got a taste of it then. something about seeing the sky and plants while playing is good. the music was improvised using a setup that has become my new favorite way of playing, i’ve done more (inside) recordings in this style since. playing outside is definitely different with the sun beating down on you and your instruments, and ants crawling over everything, and flying insects, but it’s all part of the experience”. mike haley, tabs out
    lovely synth stuff to lose yourself into it. recommended for listening sessions with sunbeams on your skin. but its magic works without that too, promise.

  • pulse emitter- spiritual vistas tour edition – self released

    out of stock

    originally released on lp by cylindrical habitat modules
    Incomparable new full-length from Daryl Groetsch’s Pulse Emitter project, and HANDS DOWN album of the year, already. I want to say this is the culmination and apogee of composed synthesizer music in the new millennium, but I guarantee Daryl’s got plenty more tricks up his sleeve. The profound development of Daryl’s music is more and more apparent with each release, from the crackly, hollow modular nightmares of his early sides to the heartbreakingly beautiful tonal architecture of “Spiritual Vistas”, each key and each turn of a knob is a giant stride for the genre as a whole. Bringing to mind some mid-period David Borden at times, or Vangelis’ Blade Runner score, this is truly transcendental, emotive music. No joke, Pulse Emitter solidifies itself as the best of the best with this colossal album. The result of almost a year’s work, Daryl reduces all of his one-take, live to a tape deck competitors (myself included) to almost nothing. Four deeply contemplated, brilliantly composed analog symphonies that could literally be played for any music fan. It’s almost impossible for me not to toss around bold proclamations when talking about this album, but really, this is pretty much as good as it gets.
