Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
Chillout, Ambient, Electronic, Deephouse

Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
I started in 1992 with an Amiga 500, the 4-track music program Octamed and an 8-bit sequencer! Bit by bit new elements were added, a Korg 01w / FD, an Atari computer was needed for the first Cubase, later a PC, in 1998 I had a real studio with many analog synthesizers, one of the first digital mixing consoles, Akai samplers and so on. Back then, I had done a lot of music with a friend and later a DJ from Bremen, house and techno. When I first moved to Heidelberg 2001, I no longer had the space for a studio and gradually sold everything and only had a PC, a master keyboard and speakers. Because of my medical studies I had less and less time for music, that was in Marburg, where I also met my current colleague Thomas Lemmer. Many years later I sent him a few tracks and our first song Pastelstrand was released on his album pure! After that we released our first EPs and album together. We also got great remixes for the EPs. We are currently working on our second album and I am really looking forward to the next release! stay tuned, it's worth it!

Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
I first love to electronic music was like written bevor the Amiga 500! Before that I had no real music style and I mostly heard charts. It was great to experiment and to experience electronic music in every detail. Jean michel jarre was my role idol.

Nagamag:
Did you make money with music?

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
Yes, of course, a fraction of a cent per stream. Last year I earned almost a few euros! 🙂 still nothing to live on. But music should primarily make people happy, when money is added it is nice but not important.

Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
Vangelis "Conquest of Paradise"

Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
Thomas Newman "Any other Name"

Andarctica – Held (Spotify)

Andarctica – Held
(Spotify)

“held | pur” is the fourth release of the ambient music project, andarctica. Two live improvisations on guitar and pedals, “held | pur” begins with a bright, open-armed invitation before turning inward with the persistent pulse of “pur”. Composed as a meditation, focus or sleep aid, the simplicity and duration of the second piece lays a landscape for creative expression and losing yourself in thought.

Manon – Streams (Spotify)

Manon – Streams
(Spotify)

Manon paints landscapes for your ears. The palette of the singer-songwriter is full of contrasting tone colors: light and shadow collide in a universe that is as alien as it is earthbound.
Her pictures captivate with filigree lines, wide surfaces and powerful accents. Composed by Manon, the music unites infinity and intimacy and pulls away from classical structures. Sometimes the work floats slightly, the next moment it erupts like a volcano. Delicate melodies flow into menacing abysses. The result though, is always both organic and authentic.
The new songs were recorded by Manon at Greenhouse Studios in Reykjavik and produced with Francesco Fabris.

Kirsten Agresta Copely – Winter’s Bone
(Spotify)

”Winter’s Bone” is an atmospheric meditation on the stark days of a year’s last season. It was inspired by life in a tiny NYC apartment during a bitter and bone chilling winter. The darker ambiences are offset with glimmers of hope from the purposeful harp melody. It is the final song on ’Around The Sun,’ a compelling nine song cycle designed to take the listener on a unique 365-day journey.
