6 Jahre Planetarium: Stationary Travels for Planetarium

A mix created for the 6th anniversary of the Planetarium series curated by Nils Feldhus

Brian Housman, curator of the Stationary Travels blog and Mixcloud channel has been a key influence for my Planetarium sets for many years. I asked him for a submission to the 6-year anniversary of Planetarium (which happened last Friday on November 1) and he kindly put together an entrancing journey through the past six years of ambient music up to very recent releases. It’s an honour to have him back on the decks after the 6-year Helioscope celebration back in 2017.

6 Years of Helioscope : Stationary Travels for Planetarium (Helioscope)

A guest mix created to celebrate six years of the Helioscope series curated by Nils Feldhus

Brian Housman from Richmond, Virginia promotes post rock, ambient, neoclassical and emotional electronica amongst other genres on his blog Stationary Travels. He is constantly looking for “music that tells stories without words and that takes you somewhere other than where you are currently sitting or standing”. STravels has been one of, if not the most influential sources of new discoveries for Planetarium since the beginning. His guestmix here is “skewed toward modern classical and a subdued, nocturnal mood” and you can hear three additional tracks from the Planetarium track pool at the end that fit this theme.

The Ocean Inside – For Headphone Commute

“The Ocean Inside” is a special guest mix created exclusively for Headphone Commute featuring a selection showcasing some of the brilliant ambient & electronic music coming out of Iran. 

Original post and additional listening options via HChcdi.gs/TheOceanInside

Stationary Travels started about two years ago as a journey of musical discovery (thanks in no small part to Headphone Commute, by the way). One of the first revelations I encountered was a very vibrant electronic music scene coming out of Iran. Those who have been paying attention know it encompasses much more than just ambient and modern classical, but these are the styles that have resonated the most with me personally. This mix exclusively features artists from that scene I have been listening to recently. I find each of these tracks to be captivating and rich with emotional depth and I think the music here speaks to the ocean inside all of us. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
