Electronic Meditation
Thursday December 14th, 2017 with Sean McFee
Century Club

Electronic Meditation took to the airwaves in May 2015, playing all sorts of progressive electronic / Berlin school, psychedelic, prog, and whatever else seemed to make sense. I have hosted it 93 times, and Mark Keill has done 6 great fill-ins when I could not make it. Tonight is the 100th show, so we'll take a look back at some of the most popular episodes.
We'll start with the show's namesake band, who were the subject of the most listened-to episode...
Tangerine Dream - Phaedra - Virgin
Sinoia Caves was played on the all-Canadian episode "Electronic Medit-eh-tion", featuring electronic/electro-acoustic/ambient music from the Great White North.

Atman was played on the "They did the culture mash" episode, which featured a lot of world fusion music that was somewhat of a departure from the norm.

Earlier this year I did a show on the collaboration between echo-guitarist Günter Schickert and synthesizer legend Klaus Schulze. It was my most streamed show this year. The track here is from his 1979 classic from which I played "Puls" before.

The Funkadelic track was played on "The Wedding Show", which was a miscellaneous music episode I did a couple years ago that was loosely themed around marriage.

We'll start the second half of the show with Tangerine Dream again, this time from the all-encore show from March 2016. This is the encore from the London show in 1975 from the brief tour where they were joined by Michael Hoenig of Agitation Free after Peter Baumann had temporarily left the group.

Next up are tracks from two popular spotlight shows, one on Jean Michel Jarre and one on Thieves' Kitchen, the latter which features a lengthy interview with guitarist and composer Phil Mercy.
Part IV
Jean Michel Jarre - Oxygene - Dreyfus
Spiral Bound
Thieves' Kitchen - Shibboleth
The show concludes with another great echo guitarist, Manuel Göttsching of Ash Ra Tempel. A killer performance.
