Embrace our high tech. future, with a concept

This is nicely crafted (dystopian) dark
ambient from Germany, by argyre planitia (Stefan Voss). He began to be
interested in dark ambient around 2011 and began to produce in this
style and released his first album on Petroglyph Music in
2013.

To him the dark ambient genre has a great creative
potential as this genre is more open to sounds and sound experiments
than any other musical style. To him it is also a very relaxing
experience both in listening and creating.

He is using a mixed
setup of software and hardware to produce the dark ambient soundscapes
on his releases and live. Musically his influences are more classical
like early Pink Floyd and post punk / dark wave to the Berlin school
like K. Schulze or Brian Eno's music. Although he's not making these
styles of rock or Berlin school, all this music has somehow influenced
his understanding of music.

He has material published on
Petroglyph Music and Ambient Online. He can also be heard on Dark
Ambient Radio (http://www.darkambientradio.de)

His influences:
During the last years, I discovered the large field of dark ambient
with raison d’être, Kammarheit, Phelios, Atrium Carceri, Lamia Vox,
Bad Sector, SETI, Vestigial and many, many, many others and got a lot
of inspiration from it.

Other music he likes most of: early
Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Can, Kraftwerk, Tuxedomoon, The Velvet
Underground, Nico, Dead Can Dance, Kirlian Camera, The Legendary Pink
Dots, Deine Lakaien, Diorama, PIL, Einstürzende Neubauten, Joy
Division, In The Nursery, Brian Eno and Erdball, Portishead, Laurie
Anderson, Recoil, Gregorian
chants.
