Sharing social circles and spiritual ideologies with artists such as Iasos,
Connie Demby and Deuter, whilst splitting label release schedules with
Laraaji, Laurie Spiegel and Wendy Carlos, the unique Florida raised soul mate
duo known as Emerald Web released their privately pressed debut LP at an
axis where post-prog rock met proto-new age and ambient electronic music.
At the turn of the 1980s Bob Stohl and Kat Epple embarked on a ten-year spiritual
journey playing at planetariums and laser shows above the same
Californian silicon city that devised the early computer music software, unifying
their state of the art modular synth soundscapes and organic compositions
of flutes, bells and field recordings and furnishing a self-pressed cassette
tapeography of inimitable Emerald Web music for their self-funded Stargate
label. Having first communicated via the medium of music as flute players at
a South Florida jam session the future space music luminaries would be instrumental
in assisting synthesiser companies via feedback and consultancy in
developing instruments such as the Lyricon wind synth (favoured by Suzanne
Ciani and Bruno Spoerri) and various sponsored machines for Arp, Buchla,
EML, Computone and Orchestron. Named after a laser show formation and
combining influences from science fiction films, fantasy novels and a broad
musical spectrum including Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, It's A Beautiful Day
and Goro Yamaguchi, Bob and Kat would balance day jobs as synth programmers
as well as TV and film soundtrackers under the moniker BobKat
Productions (counting microscope nature documentarian Carl Sagan amongst
their clients) with evening synthesiser shows at galleries, spiritual centres and
even punk clubs. This compilation album comprises early tracks from Emerald
Web’s debut vinyl release and the following four rare cassette only albums on
Stargate Records from 1979-1982 before the band recorded their bestselling
(and Grammy nominated) albums for labels affiliated with Germany’s Kuckuck
and Larry Fast before Bob Stohl’s sad and untimely death in 1989.
Taken from original master tapes and recorded using revolutionary and prototypal
music technology many of these tracks have never been on vinyl or CD
until now. Finders Keepers are proud to have worked closely alongside Kat
Epple as part of an ongoing Emerald Web/BobKat archival project making
these important early electronic/organic musical hybrids available for fans of
ambient krautrock, electronic soundtracks, musique concrete,
Emerald Web - Dragon Wings And Wizard Tales
Emerald Web
Dragon Wings And Wizard Tales
LP | 2017 | FR | Original (Longhair)
23,99 €*
Release:2017 / FR – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
This is a real gem and a long time lost jewel in the history of psychedelic and electronic space music. Emerald Web's 1979 debut album was a milestone in electronic psychedelia, rooted in the prog of the mid '70s. Emerald Web was composed of husband and wife Bob Stohl and Kat Epple. Lots of trippy flute and synthesizer soundscapes with the odd vocal track from Epple. A unique sound somewhere between Tangerine Dream, Popol Vuh, and the 'Blade Runner' soundtrack, all filtered through homemade found nature sound weirdness and naive studio trickery. The sound of South Florida getting kosmisch!
