50609 Forrest, Andrew - Boundless

The lush, the powerful and the spacious oncemore re-unite on the
ambient/space extravaganza "Boundless", the second installment in
Andrew Forrest´s "Harmonics Trilogy"-trilogy. Again, there are three
lengthy movements, each clocking over 20 minutes, featuring some very
nicely rendered twinkling sequencing beyond immersive, velvet
soundscapes. Andrew perceives the gradually unfolding and highly
atmospheric outcome as his most complex, compositionally-surprising
and expansive music to date. With the third and final part already on
the way, the subtle, the anthemic and the serene form the core of the
expansive textural compositions of "Boundles", with hints of
neoclassical, symphonic and new age music. Moreover, the vast spaces
all reach out to endless and far-off worlds beyond but also those
within reach. Submerging and dwelling comfortably in these
breathtaking, overall gracious and profound emotive sound paintings
strikes a pleasant sense of balance, happiness and makes one feel at
ease while so easily lifting up the human mind and soul. Chapeau, Andrew!

Brückner, Michael - 100 Million Miles Under The Stars (73851)

Hum … What a pleasant discovery! It's through a splendidly charming
sound and musical decoration that Michael Brückner's first work
arrives to our ears by the means of a major EM label. Michael Brückner
is a veteran in the circles of EM with a more or less dark ambient
style. Active since 1992, he composed and realized 99 albums which are
available on various download platforms. For his 100th album, the
Syngate label took the bet to make known this talent hidden in the
webs of Internet. "100 Million Miles Under the Stars" is a superb
album which reveals all of the splendours of an EM which renews with
its first role; weave some rhythms and cosmic harmonies in an
electronic galactic universe. It's a great collection of 7 titles
where the floating and atmospheric intros are used as pretext to
undulatory rhythms moulded in the harmonious oblivion of the analog
synths. Rhythms which emerge out of cosmic abysses created in
envelopes of stellar to nes to be made dream the driest of the
imaginations. It's a very favorite. My very favorite for 2012 that I
hurry to share with you.

Pulsations forged into hollow wood are raising hoops with eroded
outlines, like some lost steps would raise mislaid partridges, and
splendidly the musical fauna of "100 Million Miles Under the Stars"
makes itself known in our ears with a veil of iridescent mist which
floats in the echoes of the hollow pulsations. A strange perfume of an
industrial world floats with quirky tones which stroll around mists
weaved in the laments of fanciful violins, whereas that "Memo for Nemo
Part I" shells its first minutes in an intense atmospheric broth. An
uncertain rhythm is settling down a little after the 4th minute. Fed
by more amplified pulsations, of which each pulse is bruising the
movement which drops shrill lunar lamentations, and a mixture of
percussions/cymbals flickering of nervousness, this rhythm debauches a
violent line of frenzied pulsations which makes the bridge between
both parts. This splendid spasmodic rodeo crashes into an atmospheric
cliff and its brightnesses fall into "Memo for Nemo Part II" which
runs away with a delicious stroboscopic movement of which the slow
undulations are structuring a cosmic down-tempo where the rhythm,
always uncertain, topples over between an exhilarating and occasional
velocity, constantly decorated with an attractive cosmicolectronic
sound fauna. "Cycle of Fire" is a slow cosmic tribal procession. If
the intro offers ringings of sidereal bells which ring among sinuous
and long soloing breezes of a synth a bit tinny, the rhythm is
wiggling with the arrival of clanic percussions of which the frantic
tams-tams sculpture an enchanting oniric dance. The irregularity of
the rhythms is in the heart of the charms of "100 Million Miles Under
the Stars", creating a musical happening which tergiversates in a
cosmos starry with tones that are similar to the galactic poetries of
Tomita and Vangelis. And the tribal rhythm of "Cycle of Fire" is as
much parcelled out between its frenzied tams-tams and its soft cosmic
ambiences that a synth is wrapping of a soft astral layer, taking good
care of the scattered piano notes which float in a Milky Way in
thousand stellar tones.
Like some oblong pulsations lost in an ascending heart rhythm, the
rhythm of "Paradox Planet" emerges from beyond hollow winds to
oscillate of a hypnotic velocity on the gyrating valleys of a
minimalist movement which is melting into a linear spiral before dying
out in the breezes of the void of a black cosmic finale. These rhythms
livened up by synth waves which run and roll in loops are one of the
wonders of "100 Million Miles Under the Stars", the other one being
these deep atmospheric moods which bubble and shape those abstract
rhythms drawn on timeless loops. "Monokosmos" borrows the same
rhythmic and atmospheric phases as "Paradox Planet" except that the
rhythmic loops are curter and roll with a more increased pace. The
iridescent flutes of "Waves are Chasing the Wind" sing of their
sharpness breaths on a more tribal rhythm. The approach, which is
similar to an audacious dance of the desert winds with chaotic
percussions/pulsations, embraces a fiery rhythm from which the v
ertical snails form a cadence a bit dislocated which goes contrary to
the mesmerizing singings of the wind flutes. The way that the
title-track takes place reflects all the sound wealth of "100 Million
Miles Under the Stars" with cosmic atmospheres rich in tones which
sparkle and sing from every corners of the universe. Magnificently
drifting and musically dreaming, the intro floats in a cosmic broth
which hovers all over the 7 titles of this Michael Brückner's 100th
opus. The sidereal winds are rich and warm. They groan in a swarm of
musical stars which shine with all the inconceivable wealth of the
depths of a cosmos within the reach of any imagination, while the
rhythm wakes up with the silvered jingles of hoops which melt
themselves within their rhythmic rings. The rhythm is weaved in a
strong undulatory current, pounding with power under the charms of a
flute which has no secrets anymore for our ears and of a synth which
disperses its cosmic harmonies on a galactic rodeo to tho usand
spasmodic kicks, concluding the wonderful paradox of a cosmic poetry
on its conceptual reality.
Yes "100 Million Miles Under the Stars" is a big work of EM like those
made in the forgetting of the 70's by artists such as Synergy, Jarre
or Vangelis. An opus that I strongly recommend. Hat to you Michael Brückner!
