Pop Ambient is a compilation series curated by Wolfgang Voigt, of which I was a part from the very beginning. The upcoming one for 2022 contains two collaborations I produced with Markus Guentner and Pepo Galán. The LP/CD will be released on the twelfth of November. Info With the cover
Some time ago I became aware of the American label “Past Inside The Present” and was amazed by their diverse and comprehensive back catalogue. The other day I had a chat about it with Zakè, the label founder.
“…After “Tides”, “Ousia” is the second purist ambient album by Joachim Spieth; it is released shortly after his contribution to the latest Pop Ambient 2021 (“Libration” together with Pepo Galán). While “Tides” was still characterized by a continuously present, never-ending carpet of sound – following the image of constantly high tides – “Ouisa” goes a step further: here everything moves in waves that swell and subside again…”
I’m happy to see “Libration”, a collaboration with Spanish artist Pepo Galán, released on the next Pop Ambient compilation. This series is curated by Wolfgang Voigt, who is one of the founders of the Cologne-based Kompakt label and has been releasing groundbreaking works with his project Gas for more than 20 years.
