Professor Quack said:
"I was out last night and snapped this of Curtis b at a club in town. He was using a sp808 a mc505 a djmixer and a mpc4000. The 4000 is like bringing a IBM enterprise server to a gig. When he turned it on the lights in the club dimmed, and two circuits blew. He had to call the power company to get a technician out to install a dedicated mpc outlet. But then mid way through setup the heat coming from that thing caused the club's fire alarm to go off, the fire dept said before a mpc4000 can be used in public it needs a safety inspection. Needless to say all he needed was to add a proper cryogenic cooling system and the show went on. Anyways here's 5 mins of Curtis b."

spheric lounge - electronic ambient music
Spheric Lounge is a collective of artists who get together on a monthly basis in Munich at a bar and perform, share, discuss and enjoy ambient music. I have to admit that some of the music on this site is quite ethreal and very good.
Quote from the site:
[Spheric Lounge] primarily is an offer to participate! we prefer to call it a live electronic ambient project. an open circle of friends and creative people that meets several times a month to do jam sessions, parties or public gigs. what started as an electronic jam session at a bar in munich has now become a regular and well-known part of the munich music scene. improvised music, creative visuals, improvised dance and dimmed light melt into a communicative atmosphere that is unique in munich.
Details regarding how to participate and when the group meets can be found on the site.
