Thread: Really spacy synth music?

    Anything from Steve Roach should fit the bill:

    Pulsar always scratches that itch for me. "Strands of the Future" in particular

    Help?
    I have a couple disc by the group Spacecraft the pretty much fit that bill.



    I can also highly suggest anything by Robert Rich, he may not always go to the outer reaches of the cosmos but it's certainly a trip worth taking.

    Eno's Apollo is the best "floating in space" music for me. Not strictly synth, though.

    I like this album, too. Overlooked.

    I don’t remember them ever even using a synth.

    An obvious choice: Tangerine Dream’s Zeit. Perhaps less obvious, but same era and region: Affenstunde by Popol Vuh.

    Not strictly synth, but a lot of Far East Family Band’s stuff will take you to the outer cosmos. Try “The Cave” Down to the Earth or Parallel World.

    And I suppose I’m the first to mention Nik Raicevic (a.k.a. Nik Pascal):

    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    Yes! Pretty much exactly what I'm looking for.

    Looking forward to checking out the other stuff in this thread too. Thanks!

    Get the CD and listen to this on headphones. I did back when it first came out in '89 and NEVER failed to get goosebumps. John Dyson (and his previous band Wavestar) is the most underrated synth-man out there.

    Progtopia is a podcast devoted to interviewing progressive rock, metal, and electronic artists from the past and present, featuring their songs and exclusive interviews. Artists interviewed on the show have included Steve Hackett, Sound of Contact, Larry Fast, Circus Maximus, Anubis Gate, Spock's Beard, and many more. http://progtopia.podomatic.com See you in a land called Progtopia!

    Rendez-vous is the first album of Jarre's that I find hasn't aged as well as its predecessors. I loved it in the '80s, but it was a daring new sound in those days (as was Tangerine Dream's Le Parc). It's loads better than the one that came after it (Revolutions), but neither fit the bill of "space music" as they're too melodic/dynamic.
