45040 Graham Getty und  Matthew Stringer - Changing Landscapes

Is it the end of Perge? There are rumors ... But with this latest solo
album from Matthew Stringer, where the signature of Graham Getty is
present in a few places, one can say that the succession of the
mythical duo is in good hands in this period where Perge is just on a
break . And it's while wanting to make a compilation of the band that
the English musician notes that there is still good original material
of Perge, in addition to find a good amount of his own compositions
that he wrote through the sessions of the duet. Gradually, “Changing
Landscapes” took shape. First considered as a simple album, Matthew
Stringer sees the possibility of adding his music for a second album
on which also appear some titles of a totally new Perge which seems to
get away from the claws of Tangerine Dream. The result is an extremely
attractive and complete album with short titles and longer ones in a
form of these Berlin School monuments as well as atmosphe r ic titles.
And always the harmonic signature, sometimes melancholy and sometimes
joyous, of Matthew Stringer who revealed his capacities in the very
good The Second Sun, one of the best albums published in 2015. The
perfect recipe to give a big album of EM. "A Man with a Van" comes
into our ears without subtleties. It's direct and musical with synth
pads which push songs in a cathedral atmosphere. The arrangements seem
to be a kind of nod to the opening of the album Turn of the Tides, in
a less classic version by cons. "Sundrip" changes the game with a
light rhythm and a beautiful melody structure that cannot deny the
influences of the Dream on the music of Matthew Stringer, period
Logos. If the sequencer is as lively as musical with its removable
fluidity, the synth is not bad either with beautiful solos enchanting.
It's a very Johannes Schmoelling title. What would you do with "Ten
Thousand Days" to live? It's a little the questioning, and the echo of
his thoughts, of a synthe sized voice. The following rhythm is semi
slow with a beautiful Mellotron in mode singing under starry prisms.
The intensity is progressing with finesse. The Mellotron becomes
synth, the sequences more accentuated and some play in symbiosis with
the harmonic projection in a very Peter Baumann structure, Romance 76
period. "I Feel Laserium" is a title written by Graham Getty and
performed by Perge. And this is probably the most original title of
the band, in that we hardly feel the influences of the Dream. This is
a good Berlin School with a rhythmic structure supported by a tandem
sequences and percussion and which takes unexpected turns under a rain
of synth riffs. The synths are in melody mode with beautiful solos and
just what is needed as a bed of sound effects. A very good title!
"Crystal" is very representative of its title with a symphony for
chimes forged in ice. The flow is fluid with a beautiful harmonious
approach that is lost in a very eventful finale. "Zed Won" is an a m
bient ballad modeled in the sessions of Turn of the Tides or Tyranny
of Beauty. The orchestrations are dense and the melody as inspired
than very inspiring. "Little Novas" is a short title animated by a
lively movement of the sequencer that Matthew Stringer decorates with
effects and arpeggios as crystalline as the solos. "Retrospect" is
this beautiful melodious electronic ballad which was the bonus title
of the album The Second Sun, while "Albedo: Zero Point One Five" is
the vision of Matthew of this composition from Vangelis. "Mars" ends
this first CD of “Changing Landscapes” a little on the same tone as "A
Man with a Van" but in less ceremonial. It's a title of very musical
atmospheres with big strata of screaming synth which get pile up in a
dark sonic sky. A sky which get clears by the insistence of a
beautiful melody plays on piano and which hatches with panache in
beautiful orchestrations. The influences of Schmoelling are also very
present in this title.
The CD2 contains 4 long titles that are all related to the Berlin
School style. After an opening filled with layers of synths which
intertwine their visions of moods and defeat their songs filled of
angelic trumpets, "Mesentoa" explodes with an infernal rhythm. An
ostinato rhythm that is as lively as it is fluid and well supported by
equally nervous percussions. Here, the programming of the sequencer,
ditto for "Out of the Woodwork", is the business of Graham Getty. The
moods are actually very TD for synths and the harmonic solos. The
structure is quite personal to the new sound of Perge, as in "I Feel
Laserium". Adorned of splendid solos, the stubborn rhythm gradually
fades, attracting "Mesentoa" in a final as much very ethereal as TD
with nice solos which sing on sequences still hot and ready to
explode. "Hypatia" is more ambient and is born of the mysteries and
the nebulous tones of EM. Synthetic graffiti adorn an acrylic mist
where fragments of very evasive melodies and a bass pulsation withou t
ambition are heard. A keyboard weaves hopping notes in order to build
a more melodic opening when a sequencer emerges from this sonic fog to
sculpt the sharp leaps of a motionless rhythm. The added percussions
bring more strength to "Hypatia", joining the harmonious portion of
the title. But it's too little too late, since the rhythm becomes
cocoon again and the harmonies are melting in a decor now richer of
its emotive ambiences and of its solos which are more emotive than
musical. "Out of the Woodwork" is my favorite title of the 2nd CD, and
possibly of “Changing Landscapes”. Here, Perge, as on "I Feel
Laserium" and "Mesentoa", surpasses itself with an envelope, a musical
imprint, of its own. This makes some catchy rhythms for the neurons
and the cravings of a Berlin School fan. And the sequencer here is in
mode; run after me so that I'll make you damn. Two lines of rhythmic
sequences, and a more harmonic one, as well as electronic percussions
leave a living imprint which perfec t ly supports the weight of lost
narrations in its structure. The nature of the tones varies with some
organic spikes and some more limpid balls which add up nervously on a
rhythmic conveyor. The solos are simply splendid and fly like
spectrums of melodies which charm in these 15 minutes simply majestic.
Composed by Matthew Stringer, the structure of "Haumea" shows that the
latter is as comfortable behind a sequencer as his piano or his
synths. Emerging gently from its atmospheres, the title clings to a
good electronic rock and its tempo which makes us easily stamp foot
and where nestles a beautiful melody in a very TD style of the Virgin
years. The sharp oscillations of a sequencer push "Haumea" to a more
furious rhythm, thus setting the table to Graham Charman for heavy and
incisive guitar solos which make very Frank Dorittke, otherwise Zlatko
Perica. The violence of "Haumea" melts in a foggy finale and a morphic
atmosphere, as if the music was going to enjoy again its change of so
n ic landscapes.
This excellent album of Matthew Stringer comes with a 3rd CD if we buy
the album in download format. There is nearly 40 more minutes on this
CD which hides 5 tracks ranging from 3 to 13 minutes. The music is
good with more moments of ambience. "Bip" is a good and very catchy
electronic rock with a good synthesized guitar solo. "The Fluidity of
Memory" is a title of rather meditative moods with a nice touch of
emotion which reaches its limit with the arrival of a nice dreamy
acoustic guitar. "Emodius" is a long title of ambiences dotted with
samplings of nature and which ends with a piano in nostalgia mode. The
intensity of the atmospherical fog buries the presence of the piano.
"Tock" is a good ballad which is very New Age. And "Makemake" vibrates
too much in my speakers with its structure as heavy and intense as in
"Emodius". Unless you absolutely want to dance on "Bip", this 3rd CD
is not essential. This is bonus material which doesn't alter the
richness and the depth of this splendid album from Matthew Stringer.
In the end, “Changing Landscapes” is an impressive tour-de-force of an
incredible depth and which makes me say from the tip of my lips; Perge
is dead, long live Matthew Stringer! But I don't want to. We can
easily live with the 2 and I miss Perge. Especially if its
orientations are redefined by the titles present in “Changing
Landscapes” where we have the best of both worlds from Perge.

62977 Airsculpture - Traveling Light

The AirSculpture guys are still alive and kicking, hereby releasing
another most vibrant live document with a 100% improvised outcome as
usual. The slightly edited outcome (to bring it down to cd length but
without losing any music) is from their sparkling headline set at
E-Day 2015 in Oirschot, the Netherlands with an almost hour long title
track plus a snappy 13-minute coda taken from the great encore.

Well, the 71-minute sonic journey is a cracking one and a definitive
bit of airsculpture, hunting down massive sequences, beautifully
molded and evolving synthscapes while taking time exploring the band’s
ever expanding musical horizons.
I’m not in the least surprised “Travelling Light” (the band’s first
album coming in a heavy card gatefold sleeve) already looks like it
will become AirSculpture’s biggest seller in recent times, in only two
weeks of direct sales it's about to overtake all of their other discs.

 65732 Jesper Sorensen - Zero Gravity

I have to say that it's pretty hard not to fall in love with this last
opus of Jesper Sorensen. The demolishing of our eardrums activated by
heavy, incisive and wild percussions is as much effective at the level
of the hearing pleasure as these synth solos which travel between
Jean-Michel Jarre's harmonies in the land of Michael Garisson. Heavy,
slow, lively and floating, the multiple patterns of rhythm in “Zero
Gravity” entail us in an electronic fable of more than 80 minutes of
which the incredible violence of the percussions redefined the genre.
"Dark Matter" opens in ambiences this 2nd opus of the Danish musician
who lives now in York, England. A shrill sound signal and waves of
white noises switch on these ambiences while a synth line spreads a
foggy shadow. A delicate movement of the sequencer frees a harmonious
line which pods its keys in a good circular hypnotic structure. Other
sequences join this musical rhythm. Their greasy ton es wrap them with
a crunchy wool which will make resound another rhythmic aspect of
“Zero Gravity” throughout its 10 titles, among which two in bonus. The
opening of "Ascending" follows the noisy curve of "Dark Matter". But
for the rest, it's another story. Heavy percussions knock out these
atmospheres, sculpting a rhythm of lead which bangs into us
charmingly. Sequences and percussions, as well as percussive effects,
reveal a rhythmic fauna which will amaze, by the violence, and will
charm, for the precision, throughout this album. The feeling to float
between the universes of Zoolook and Révolutions is insurmountable in
my mind. Set apart the percussions and the sequences, Jesper Sorensen
takes all the latitude to insert very good harmonious solos, that we
can whistle easily, and electronic effects very in the tone of an
album without gravity. "Navigating" proposes a waving rotary motion
which derives with a stroboscopic effect in the series of sequences.
The percussions hammer h e avy lead in this attractive structure of
sequences which waddle in a spheroidal way. They are incisive and
their strikes divide the rhythmic reach which pitches between a usual
electronic movement and a big jerky up-beat. The synth weaves good
areal solos while blowing nice melodious layers which grip onto our
eardrums. These melodies return with more swiftness into the furious
rhythm of "Finally Falling". Another strong title which is blasted by
monstrous percussions.
"Into Space" follows with a structure of rhythm, always clubbed well
by violent percussions, which goes adrift with these sequences of
which the tones full of juices and of gurglings charm our ears since
"Dark Matter". The synth multiplies good solos, abandoning any imprint
of melodies in this structure of floating beat. The percussions
collide again the movement of the sequencer languishingly circular of
"Breaking Through" and its floating and charming solos for the
eardrums. Divided between the rondnesses of seq uences starved for
good cosmic Groove and the bombardment of the percussions, the rhythm
evolves with its fluids variations while remaining constantly lively
in its cosmic envelope. An envelope fed by lines of celestial voices
which add a not too intrusive seraphic flavor, leaving an imprint
charming to this approach very Jean-Michel Jarre, in particular at the
level of harmonies in the synth solos. The title-track throws us in a
very extraterrestrial universe with an effect of gigantic loops
decorated with sound effects from another world. Certainly, the
flavors of cosmic rock in the best years of Jarre can be found here
and they soften a little this a bit unusual introduction. The step of
the sequencer resounds piercingly. Destabilizing the opening of "Zero
Gravity", it calls the percussions for help in order to forge another
ear-catchy cosmic rhythm as heavy than as slow. This rotary and
spasmodic movement of the sequencer is of use as bases to very good
cosmic solos on a struct u re which evolves with a form of contracted
velocity in its second half. The undulatory and parallel movements of
the sequencer which feeds the opening "Beyond Time" are sprayed by an
excessive heaviness fed by another load of the percussions and by very
round sequences which dab an ostinato coated with sound effects which
incite to the stridency. In this overloaded sound noise, Jesper
Sorensen managed to keep a harmonious control with other good catchy
solos. Phew … my ears are thirsty of peace after 65 minutes of
rhythmic storm. But there is more! Two bonus tracks come with the
download of “Zero Gravity”. "Dark Matter Breaking Through" are both
tracks in one, which is very logical, whereas "Ascending (Short
Edition)" says it all. But there is even more when you buy this title
on the site Bandcamp de Jesper Sorensen. The latter has edited 2 long
titles which melt all the music here in two long parts without
intermissions between them. An excellent initiative which gives to
those wh o buys this album more for their money. But whatever, this
album, without bonuses, is an inescapable for those who like a heavy
and very lively electronic cosmic rock. My ears ate it with delight
from beginning to end!
