Mac - Interspace

Artist: Mac
P: 2017
Berlin School Spacemusic with sequences and the reverbed sounds, that makes the right planetary feeling for spacetravels. Sounds a little bit like Departure from the Northern Wasteland by Michael Hoenig.

Mac - Justice

Artist: Mac of BIOnight
P: 2007
Mac often wonders if justice really exists...
Not the justice of man and his laws, that's flawed and irrelevant.
I'm talking about some kind of superior justice, some cosmic justice that truly protects and helps those who deserve it...
How often do we see good people go and bad people stay?
How often do we see the innocent and loving ones being punished by fate or whatever it is, while those who don't care about anybody but themselves scurry around free and ready to hurt once more?
If this sounds obvious and cheap to you, well, trust me: it doesn't when you experience it, like so many good people do every day...
Justice... is that asking for too much?
I came up with the basic concept for this album in 1996.
For several reasons, though, the right time to record it only came in 2005/2006, almost ten years later.
Now it finally exists outside of my mind, too...

Mac - Synchronical Events

Artist: Mac
P: 2018
In the past few months I've been listening to many records from the late 60's to the very early 80's and I was struck – once more - by how much they could accomplish with so little and primitive gear at their disposal. I therefore felt the urge to record something using simple sounds and simple effects, mostly emulations of what was available then. Also, in the late 60's multitrack recording was limited to four (and later eight) tracks. I chose to impose on myself the same limit, so every piece on this album was recorded using a maximum of eight tracks (mostly four, though), as opposed to the twenty or thirty I normally use.
This is certainly not the first time I go back to early recording methods and atmospheres, as it always has a sort of purifying effect on me and it's fun. Lack of limitations is rarely as much fun...
Working on this album made me feel well, I hope it'll have the same effect on you when you listen to it

Mac - Visible Galaxies

Artist: Mac
P: 2017
Incredible, what Mac gets out of his synthesizers.
This CD is just a spacewalk back into the seventies long sequencertracks environments.

This album was entirely recorded using solely Tone2’s software synthesizer “Saurus,” created by Markus Krause, and the soundset I made for it called “Spacewalker”.

Mac of BIOnight - 1690

Artist: Mac of BIOnight
P: 2015
A Berlin School cake with some psychedelic icing...
Old and vintage sounding Berlin School music, with a lot of Mellotronsounds and an environment that sounds like end of the 70s.

Mac of BIOnighT - A Different Ground OSC Vol. 2

Artist: Mac of BIOnighT
P: 2010
OSC (One Synth Challenge) is an interesting competition held for the community of a forum - KVR - dedicated to electronic instruments and especially plug-ins, also known as "VST's" or virtual instruments and effects. The " challenge " the name refers to is that of creating a whole track using exclusively a free plug-in instrument for everything, from melody to drums. A handful of plug-in effects is allowed, providing that they are free and currently available. All this may sound easy, but it isn't. Still, the challenge is attracting a growing number of partecipants who are willing to put their programming and musical skills to the test. All members of the forum can vote, and there are prizes for the winners. However, winning is not the main goal, as the challenge is such a learning experience and a great way for any musician to hone his skills that the whole thing is a reward in itself. Winning does feel good, though, and I had the pleasure of winning the 22nd edition, once again with a GTG synth. V'ger has recently taken the helm, as Tattiemannie - who directed the previous editions - started going thru a very busy period. Thanks to both of them for the great work! Anyway, this is the second collection of the tracks I entered in the competitions, enjoy!

Mac of BIOnighT - A Different Sky OSC Vol. 1

Artist: Mac of BIOnighT
P: 2010
OSC (One Synth Challenge) is an interesting competition held by Fred "Tattiemannie" Wilkinson for the community of a forum - KVR - dedicated to electronic instruments and especially plug-ins, also known as "VST's" or virtual instruments and effects. The " challenge " the name refers to is that of creating a whole track using exclusively a free plug-in instrument for everything, from melody to drums. A handful of plug-in effects is allowed, providing that they are free and currently available. All this may sound easy, but it isn't. Still, the challenge is attracting a growing number of partecipants who are willing to put their programming and musical skills to the test. All members of the forum can vote, and there are prizes for the winners. However, winning is not the main goal, as the challenge is such a learning experience and a great way for any musician to hone his skills that the whole thing is a reward in itself. At the time of writing this, I've taken part in five OSC's, and this album collects the tracks I entered in the competitions. I only won once and yes, winning does feel good, but I had an equal amount of fun on each and every One Synth Challenge. So, a big thank you to Tattiemannie for being such a great host and all the hard work he puts into this, thanks to all the generous people who donate fantastic prizes for the winners (as I said, winning feels good and the prizes make it way better ;-) and, finally, thanks to all the other guys at KVR who make this such a pleasant and fun experience!

Mac of BIOnight - A Fake Live Album

Artist: Mac of BIOnight
P: 2007
The internet has given people the chance to find out the truth behind many things. The fact that fans could exchange information and bootleg recordings throughout the planet has allowed them to realize that most (all?) of the "live" albums we've loved over the years were not exactly live after all... Many were more or less heavily edited, others mixed live parts with studio recordings, others were even almost entirely re-performed and re-recorded in the studio. And mind: we're talking big names here, not unknown musicians! Of course, this is pretty disapponting, not because it's important that a musician can play his music live (it is not, not from my point of view), but because the fans' trust was betrayed. Besides, having listened to several of these bootleg recordings, I can say there was no reason at all for this: most of the music I heard was so much more emotional and exciting than what went onto the official releases! I just don't get it. Anyway, one day I was listening to one of those fake "live" records and - while enjoying it as I always had - I also felt a bit angry. I thought, "Well, anybody can make a live record that way!" And that's when I had this silly idea: I was going to make a fake live album, too, but I was going to say it was fake right on the cover. So, here it is, my fake live album. MAC
The music is brilliant, many different titles offer us the real live feeling as we always wanted it. Berlin School style and some more melodic tracks like TD at the beginning of the 80ies.

Mac of BIOnight - AElectroid

Artist: Mac of BIOnight
P: 2009
This album came about thanks to the amazing and amazingly inspiring virtual instruments created by Elektrostudio (Poland).
It was, in fact, entirely recorded using solely the VST plug-in pack that its absolutely brilliant and generous developer - Robert - made available for free and that were later updated by Grzegor.
Different musicstyles show all the possibilities of these virtual synthesizers within the PC.

Mac of BIOnight - Ancient Machines

Artist: Mac of BIOnight
P: 2017
This album is the second chapter of the story and musical concept that began with "Future Rain," my album from 2013 entirely recorded with Tone2's great software synthesizer "Rayblaster". Four years later (I'm writing this in 2017), here's its sequel, entirely recorded using the new and improved version of the same instrument, "Rayblaster 2". Some of the sounds I designed for this album are also part of the synth's factory bank. Once again, the musical style is that of electronic movie soundtracks from the 80's. A huge thank you to Tone2's Markus Krause for developing such inspirational and amazing instruments!

Mac of BIOnight - Another Season

Artist: Mac of BIOnight
P: 2008
The six tracks in one go offer a lot of good Berlin School stuff. Within the long tracks you can find sequences, that remind perfect to the Departure from the Northern Wasteland CD by Hoenig. Very good and versatile.

Mac of BIOnight - Attigua

Artist: Mac of BIOnight
P: 2016
Mac realises many different sounds with a slight experimental touch.
In the end the sounds dissapear in cool retro Berlin School style sequences.

Mac of BIOnighT - Black Light

Artist: Mac of BIOnighT
P: 2006
I wrote this album to let out all the pain and confusion I was feeling during a very difficult time of my life - music's always helped keep me sane...
I turned into music my feeling of not being adequate to this world; the shock of seeing the horrors human beings can perpetrate when I saw some documentaries on nazism and realized that the very same kinds of things still go on in many parts of the world, even if on a smaller scale and under different names; the accident I had at the beginning of 2005 with a chainsaw that split one side of my face in half, and the notion that some scars carve pain deeper into us and are harder to cure than those of the body; the desire for bad times as hard as a winter to end; my attempts at understanding some of the things that were going on around and inside of me; the loneliness I felt in that place where nobody could reach me; the feeling that all was wrong; my willingness to do all it took to straighten things out; and the sensation that sometimes in life even light seems to be black...

Mac of BIOnight - Cosmic Crossroads

Artist: Mac of BIOnight
P: 2010
At the end of 2009 I felt like I was at a crossroads. No big decisions to make, but a lot of small ones that were necessary to make my life a bit easier and a bit better. At the same time, I also had a strong urge to escape from reality, to be with myself only and use my ability to imagine things and places, to fly away from a number of things that I often perceive as suffocating. I guess the two things somehow mixed, and the result is this album.
Mac
The music is melodic sequenzerbased traditional Berlin School style with vintage sounds.
With a little wink to the french synthesizermusic from the 70ies.
