Meg Bowles - Evensong: Canticles for the Earth - 65672

Composer-synthesist Meg Bowles (b.1957) began her musical journey as
flutist and completed formal studies in classical music performance at
both Northwestern and Boston Universities. Upon her graduation from
Boston University in 1979, she chose to embark upon a career in
investment banking, and eventually earned an M.B.A. in finance from
Columbia University in 1984. After working as a derivatives trader for
several years, she left the investment banking field in 1992 to devote
more time to pursue advanced studies in shamanism, Jungian psychology,
and psychoanalysis, and to create and produce electronic space
music.Meg's first two CDs, Inner Space and Solstice Dreams, were
released in 1993, followed by critically-acclaimed Blue Cosmos in
1996. During those years she developed a musical association with
David Bilger, Principal Trumpet of the Philadelphia Orchestra, which
resulted in several commissioned works for trumpet and synthesizer.
The first of these commissions, Night Sun Journey, was premiered by
Mr. Bilger at the 1996 International Trumpet Guild Brassfest, followed
by the premiere of Places Where Rivers Meet at Washington National
Cathedral in 1997. These pieces and other works for trumpet and synth
are included in the CD From the Dark Earth (1999), with David as the
featured soloist.

In addition to receiving airplay on various syndicated programs such
as Echoes and Music from the Hearts of Space, Meg's work has appeared
on two compilation albums - The Other World (Hypnos Recordings) and
Soundscape Gallery 2 (Lektronic Soundscapes), both released in 1998.
Meg also contributed the opening and closing soundscapes for the
Zodiac series of recordings, a 12-CD classical crossover set released
in 1999 by Angel/EMI.

Her fifth CD, A Quiet Light - a collection of six contemplative
ambient works which explore reflections of the numinous in nature -
was released in 2011, followed by The Shimmering Land in 2013, which
was voted Best Ambient Album by Zone Music Reporter. Her co-producer
and mastering engineer for all of her recordings is her husband
Richard Price, a Grammy award-winning producer, mastering engineer,
and president of Candlewood Digital LLC, a classical music recording
company based in New Fairfield, Connecticut.

Meg's newest CD, Evensong: Canticles for the Earth (2018) is a
meditative reflection upon the ritual spaces of evening, both light
and dark, and a tribute to the beauty of planet Earth.

In addition to her work in electronic music composition, Meg is a
licensed psychoanalyst and member of the National Association for the
Advancement of Psychoanalysis, and has cultivated a private practice
specializing in creativity and trauma. She lives in Connecticut with
her husband Richard, their daughter Hannah, and their two Akitas.

..51365 Schroeder, Robert - New frequencies vol.3

First of all, give credit where credit is due! Robert Schroeder is a
studio beast always on the lookout for a constructive and innovative
idea that makes or/and will make progress the world of EM, especially
in the style of dance music. This time, he takes us back to his highly
stylized EDM universe with the third part of his nEW FREQUENCIES
series. Some 8 years after the second part of this series devoted to
dance music, our friend Robert still finds new ways to polarize the
fruits of his new musical textures on rhythms set on fire by
avalanches of percussion and a mixture of digital and analog sequences
in a festival of sound effects, new as old ones, where it's better to
hear the ears free of headphones in order to seize the unique
dimension. The massive use of brass and vocals, both ethereal and true
vocals, adds a futuristic Groove & Funk dimension to the whole of “nEW
Frequencies Vol. 3” which starts rather soberly.
With a good elec tronic rock spiced up by an entrance of shattering
percussions and radioactive clouds which propagate their effects until
the funky approach of the sequencer. Juicy keys hobble zigzagging
through snatches of voice and percussions in mode ska beat. A bass
line restructures the approach of "Moving Lights" into a very lively
rhythm which is well supported by other but soberer percussions. The
orchestral arrangements offer a good trio of trumpeters and
saxophonists while the voices are the business of a Diva always
colorful and whose image of that in The Fifth Element movie cannot be
taken off my mind. The musical and sound texture is as rich and
diverse as our ears may wish. Sober and half-dressed of sonic
artifices, "Moving Lights" is the right title to bring us into the
territories of futuristic dances visions of the sound engineer from
Aachen. "Life Streams" follows with a kind of Ambient House which has
retained its acid character. The rhythm is catchy with organic effects
squeaki n g between the layers of voices, the exaltations of a robot
behind a vocoder, the floating guitar blades and the wrenching streaks
of synthesizer as acid as psychedelic honey. The vivid sequences and
percussive effects in the form of rattlesnakes take the music out of
its EDM bed, giving it a cosmic electronic tag. "When I Think" is an
up-tempo purified by some fascinating synth solos which are as
effective and creative as those of an inspired guitarist. The massive
use of vocal effects, not only the layers of voices but the
synthesized ones which really sing, brings us into the infinite
possibilities of synthesizers.
"Time Transfer" is neither more nor less the equivalent of a revival
of Earth, Wind & Fire on a catchy structure of Groove and Funkabilly
in a House Acid version. The layers of seraphic voices which surround
the ska beat of "Around the World" is one of the few elements of the
Berlin School such as seen by Robert Schroeder in the days of his
Floating Music album. "Sp ace Horses" is very Rave with vivid
sequences and DJ effects in a neo-punk festival. The play of sequences
is hyperactive here, while ethereal effects add a floating dimension
to a final that must rest its burned sequencer keys by an excess of
activity. "Upspace Dreams" is a Groove without borders. Voice effects,
explosions of percussions, shearing down of ambiences by synth blades
free of cohesion and explosions for a new direction of rhythm are also
the prerogative of this title which is undoubtedly the most relaxed
one of this album. As incredible as it may seem, but I believe that
"My Baby" invents a new dance style. I like this title because of the
texture of the percussive effects and its chords filled of a little
scent of Western. "Faces" is a meeting point between the old Disco and
a Techno for intellectual extra-terrestrials, while "House Music"
doesn't really need a description. It means what it means!
Obviously, my lexicon on House, Chill, Ambient Chill and other form s
of Neo-Techno styles being limited, I described to the best of my
knowledge the many styles of Dance Music in this explosive album from
Robert Schroeder who astonishes us once again by the diversity of his
sonic discoveries. “nEW Frequencies Vol. 3” is more than just an album
of dance music. It's an album of sounds and of musical textures which,
assembled in the Schroeder way, find a surprising cohesion through the
many elements of noises of the EDM. Each title reveals an auditory
secret that surprises and makes you smile, as always. And let's be
honest; as long as there are craftsmen like Robert Schroeder, the art,
and whatever its forms, will always evolve with this innate concern to
surprise and to charm. This is exactly the way to describe this “nEW
Frequencies Vol. 3”
