Let me explain: Nearly 20 years ago or something, there was no TV shows during the night in Germany. Statics. Nothing. Space Night started to be one of the few exceptions, which was showing satellite footage of earth paired with downtempo and soft electronical music. It became a great success among party-goers and actually inspired me a lot to produce chillout tracks myself in the years around 1998. So even though I am not watching it anymore (I don’t receive the TV channel BR anymore where I live), I have kind of an emotional connection to this show…

That said, it makes me really angry to hear, that Space Night might get cancelled or at least changed because of the increasing GEMA fees. Something like seven-digit figures per year. WTF!

Some have already suggested, that Space Night should play music that is published under Creative Commons and if this is the step they would like to go for, I hereby offer some of the tracks I have produced to their program for free. I feel it’s the least I can do: giving something back to a show that inspired me so much…

P.S.: Even the name of my section “auralfloat” is inspired by Space Night.
