Hello All

A special Box by Tangerine Dream - Live at Augusta Raurica

This promises to be a very special release that I am looking forward to,

concert of Tangerine Dream at the amphitheatre Augusta Raurica in
Switzerland (close to the city Basel) was one of the first concerts TD
performed after the death of Edgar Froese, head and founder of TD. The
beautiful sight surrounded by an ancient Roman village, the fantastic
ancient amphitheatre created a very special atmosphere for the magic
music. Thorsten Quaeschning, Ulrich Schnauss and Hoshiko Yamane
performed a great collection of classic TD tracks that night. Enjoy a
contemporary document of Tangerine Dream's musical output. In
commemoration of Edgar.

And next weekend we have the 11th. Schallwelle-Preisverleihung

gr-243 Boots, Ron & others - An evening with friends

Following the Cosmic Nights 2018 review, “An Evening with Friends” is
another CD produced by Ron Boots which was available at the Hello
2018! @ Zeiss Planetarium event held in Bochum (Germany) on December
30th, 2017. Divided over 2 shows, this 70-minute CD features 2 tracks
played as part of the Schwingungen Party in Hamm (Germany) on July
1st, 2017 and 4 more tracks which were performed at the Awakenings
Festival in November 2017 at the Lea Hall Social Club in
Staffordshire, England. Two performances that testify to this
complicity between Ron Boots, Frank Dorittke and Harald Van der
Heijden and which also present the participation of Stephan Whitlan
next to the trio for the concert at the Awakenings festival. On the
program, Ron Boots' style of EM well wrapped in a vision of
progressive rock unique to MorPheuSz'. And above all, a Frank Dorittke on fire!
"A Warm Place" will surprise many fans with a Broekhuis, Keller &
Schönwälder struct ure with the Repelen series. The introduction is
geared towards a vaporous approach with keyboard keys which sound
pretty much like Rick Wright along with tribal ethereal percussions.
The roarings of the synth suggest a wild structure. But it's more like
a bohemian ballad with a nice acoustic guitar which makes duel to some
hanging arpeggios from Ron Boots' keyboard. Harald Van der Heijden is
the equivalent of Bas Broekhuis here with a very good acoustic
percussion play which is as seductive as enchanting. But it's Frank
Dorittke's agile fingers that steal the show here in a beautiful piece
of music that's more acoustic than electronic, even with the good
solos from Ron Boots, which in some places have this perfume of absent
flute. A very charming title full of romance that is quite unexpected
from the members of MorPheuSz. By the by, "Not Yet There" is in the
pure tradition of this group set up by Ron Boots. The introduction
spits out its nebulous vapors, I hear sordid meows, whil e the
sequencer weaves the threads of a rhythm which gallops of its fluid
oscillations. The guitar adjusts and the synth releases sibylline
vapors and perfumes of flutes which float with harmonic designs.
Harald Van der Heijden beats up the ambiences which are also supported
by Frank D and his crumbled riffs here and there. The structure goes
through an ambio-sonic phase around 8 minutes, there are strong
fragrances of Tangerine Dream at this moment, before returning with
more vigor thanks to the resonant steps of the sequencer which throws
"Not yet There" in a huge heavy and lively progressive electronic rock.
"Lea Hall Brawl" leads us to the 2017 Awakenings festival with a new
sound environment. I found the sound more limpid, less dark filtered
on this second part of the CD. The introduction is made up of mists
rushes which ripple with clinking prisms. A bass layer spreads a veil
of intensity when the ambiances embrace a short moment of rumbling. A
line of sequences emerges and twirls its keys which twirl on the spot.
Another line of sequences, lower and heavier, traces an upward
movement, quite characteristic to the Berlin School, which needs
percussions in order to bite into a livelier momentum. Frank D's
guitar is always so seductive with solos flying over a good phase of
progressive electronic rock. We slide towards "After 8 Hours", for
after 8 hours straight of music, and its introduction inspired by the
moments of romance and of wandering from Vangelis. Gradually, the
music slides towards a kind of Jazz on a good tempo of Blues. The
music is sweet and quite ethereal with Tangerine Dream perfumes, the
Jive years, in the harmonies which get built and disintegrated between
dense strata of vaporous mist. Let's say that it goes very well
between the fury of "Lea Hall Brawl" and the very solid interpretation
of "Acoustic Shadows". A title which no longer needs presentation and
takes a whole new dimension with the percussions and the guitar riffs.
The sy n ths, sequencer and keyboards of Ron Boots and Stephan Whitlan
add a depth and give an intense and absolutely stunning character to
the music. A whole interpretation my friends! Frank D shines brightly
on this album and finishes it with a solid performance in "Franky's
Floyd" which offers an amalgam of Wish You Were Here and Comfortably
Numb by Pink Floyd. The introduction is based on WYWH's wandering
solos while the guitar gently flows towards the fabulous solos of
Comfortably Numb. And it's as intense, if not more, than David Gilmour
in the studio. That gives you an idea! But no matter, this is a solid
interpretation of the quartet that gave me some chills. Shivers that I
had also in the version of "Acoustic Shadows"! All and all, “An
Evening with Friends” is a solid live album with superb renditions and
some new improvised tracks. A must for fans of MorPheuSz and Ron Boots!

80943 Wellenfeld - Elected Pieces 04-18

It was in 2008 that Wellenfeld released its first album, Sunshine, on
MellowJet Records, the label of Bernd Scholl. This label, barely a
year old, had previously reissued the first 3 albums (Cosmic Waves,
Fusion, Trip to Illusion) of Wellenfeld who had left the label
SynGate, like Bernd Scholl by the way. And since, 8 albums have
followed, including a 10th soberly titled Ten in 2017. It's following
this album that the idea of proposing a compilation germinated in the
head of Bernd Scholl as well as those of Detlef Dominiczak and Andreas
Braun. The basic idea was that each album of the German duo, from
Cosmic Waves up to Ten, would be represented by a title in a
chronological order. It was by relying on sales and the most popular
titles on radio that “Elected Pieces 04-18”, for 2004 to 2018, was
born. And as Bernd Scholl never does things in half, he mastered this
album with new sound perspectives to make a mosaic of 68 minutes that
keeps us r ivets to our headphones and / or to our speakers.
We notice a change of sound depth with "Monolith", a title from
Wellenfeld's first album that I humbly reviewed back in 2006. The
sound is richer and the attack of the sonic ornaments as well as the
cutting out of the orchestral layers are more enhanced. In fact, it's
not superfluous to compare the sound aesthetics of this compilation to
the musical strength that hides in the latest album of Moonbooter,
Groundcontrol and the Victory of Mankind. For those of you who do not
know Wellenfeld's music, let's say that it straddles a good New Berlin
School, with a tone of synthesizers that is unique to the duo, and a
form of EDM focused more on the harmony aspect than on wild beats. So,
a lively and an especially harmonious music. Sometimes, the music is
slow and languorous with a pulsating rhythm and a minimalist melody
trapped in rich lunar orchestrations, like this other side of
"Monolith". "Matrix" is of the same mold with a very goo d rhythmic
melody which is also woven of earworm in large synth pads with
interstellar orchestral perfumes. It's a bit the same with the slow
and spheroidal rhythm of "Ring of Saturn" and the second part of which
will seen the light of day some 10 years later with Ten.
"New York" announced this new musical style which was more on Dance
when Wellenfeld has presented its first album on MellowJet Records.
"Phase V" is in the mold of "Ring of Saturn", while "Summer Wind" is
in the danceable, catchy and very commercial Synth-Pop. "Summerbreeze"
is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful titles in the repertoire of
Detlef Dominiczak and Andreas Braun. A very nice melody on a hopping
rhythm, between pop and dance, is screwed in our ears here. "Brass of
Devotion" comes from the Pandemie album. An album that I have not
heard yet (it's missing to my collection) and that suspenseful film
approach, like Chris Franke, is very appetizing. We are approaching
the 2018 years with "Vintage Attack" which seduces with its many
sequenced filaments twirling around a slow and pulsating rhythm that
is in a way the signature of Wellenfeld. Here again the dense
orchestrations envelop and slow down a rhythm which welcomes a melody
that is not easy to pin down. "Ring of Saturn" was a good title from
Ten, while "Ring Modular" strongly encourages us to discover the very
good universe of Elements, one of the best albums from Wellenfeld.
From one end to the other, “Elected Pieces 04-18” is a solid
compilation with nearly 70 minutes of a very good EM from the duo
Dominiczak & Braun. Bernd Scholl's mixing and sound enhancement makes
of it a mosaic of heavy, slow rhythms that surround these beautiful
Wellenfeld melodies. In my case, this is a great way to discover this
duo that democratizes and simplifies the complexity of the world of
synths and sequencers. Melodious and very accessible!
