gr-314 - Ellis, Paul - Panoramas CD-II

Paul Ellis starts PANORAMAS CD-II with the very first track he has composed for this project. A buzzing wind takes precedence over an azure one from the opening of Silver Star Mountain in Winter Monochrome. These drone murmurs begin as soon as a fat chord falls to establish its circle of reverberations that extend like those of a finger dipping into still water. And according to the strength of the winds, the amplitude can be vast. Like here where the reverberating rays contort to undulate with languor until discreet orchestrations insufflate a little poetry to this dark ambient music. We get at the 6th minute and the last sighs of the buzzing lines end in the spells of a cello, instrument par excellence to give more darkness to our thoughts. A mellotron auscultates the skies while the reverberating fingers continue to multiply these rays while a little further a suspended stream sparkles. Silver Star Mountain in Winter Monochrome continues t o develop with slowness and atony until the synth sounds a trumpet some 35 seconds into the 11th minute. Darkness gives way to a form of brightness and life bursts forth into this Silver Star Mountain of British Columbia, Canada. Birds mock the first few minutes by chirping away at this manufacturing facility creating sonic drones that resume their rights and shapes after 14 minutes. A translucent filament envelops this tonal phenomenon, giving two shades to this sound mass that moves like these big black clouds held back by lack of winds. A revival is created after the 19th minute, when the drones stop ventilating and the synth dares dryad songs. Elements of distortion come from the depths, giving a prismatic aspect to these airs that find refuge on the ambient layers of the synth. Only 6 minutes remain before the atmospheric elements are unleashed to lead Silver Star Mountain in Winter Monochrome into a finale where the wood's specters are gurgling in a storm of wiisshh, while th e anaesthetizing layers still try to keep a semblance of control in the bowels of this mountain where not even winter keeps its secrets.

A dreamy piano makes sing its notes on a forest dew full of celestial whispers in the opening of Trillium Lake and the Blue Reflection. On this singing ground, the synth extends its tonal dew with pastel-colored sprays that spread like stratus on the edge of the woods. The piano passes the baton to the mellotron to continue this ode to nature around the 11th minute. From then on, everything turns upside down! Cracks on the wall of the woods and banging contribute to create a whirlwind of intensity over a distance of 8 minutes. Deformed voices, reverberating waves, muffled rumblings and electronic graffiti are all discordant elements that twirl under a rhythm line that crumbles chord for chord from its original meaning. This segment, where Paul Ellis has even flirted with the illusions of Cosmos, brings us to the 20th minute, where Trillium Lake and the Blue Reflection returns to the serenity of its introduction. No piano, but synth waves that invigorate a forest resplendent with its usual serenity. We can hear songs rising with these waves in the colors of life, as well as discreet chirps and crumpling of leaves that scramble to dress the ground. The music is also present with arpeggios finding themselves after the abandonment in synth grooves with increasingly sharp harmonies, even going as far as to provide shivers and emotions in this last stage of a long track that took us through a whole range of emotions.

Long segments that develop quietly in good moments of turmoil and that make the listening obsessive so much the cornucopia is full of small sound nuggets, PANORAMAS CD-II carries our ears and our emotions in structures that reflect its synopsis. Produced on a CD manufactured in a limited edition of 200 CDs, it is in the same mold as its predecessor, Panoramas CD-1 and is tamed in the same way.

85759 - Divine Matrix - Celestial Phenomena

Delicate stars land on a bed of humming noises, equivalent to the sounds of space shuttle engines in motion, as the adventure of The Stars Come Out begins. Everything moves in slow motion, like a never-ending drama. Some of these buzzes vibrate like the sound of a drum with pulsating arrhythmic beats, creating a structure that rides in harmony these streams of water that we hear flowing here and there through the 8 minutes of this introductory track. A piano reluctant to share its richness scatters its nostalgic musings sparingly before weaving melodious links to make melt a little of our soul. This pattern is sequenced to structure this melody as ambivalent as its colors. And like it is often the case in Divine Matrix' soundscapes, the finale hands us a Kleenex with orchestrations that bring a little moisture under our eyelids. Steve Barnes offers us the 3rd part of his Soundscapes series with an album in half-tone which is victim of its fi r st 2 titles and especially of the excellent Beachcombing (Soundscapes Vol. 2). In a Suzanne Ciani opening, Under the Milky Way spreads a texture of sonic eddies rolling in loops with layers of heavenly voices. An even slower track to reveal its secrets, it clings to these waves of sound that bring to the surface reminiscences of Michael Stearns' splendid M'Ocean album. The orchestrations arouse the intensity of this track by blowing moving moments as well as a beautiful ambient melody that the piano enhances at the level of the shivers to the soul with a brief appearance noticed towards the final. CELESTIAL PHENOMENA is built around 9 tracks with an average length of 7:40 minutes. The minimalist music pattern prevails in this album where the tracks flirt with too many similarities not to notice. Each track offers slow developments, some more so, that Steve Barnes fills with harmonious sequences, orchestrations and sound effects. These elements are like particles that stick to the w a lls of the vortexes created by the different synth layers. The first two tracks are little gems that overshadow Blood Moon and Jupiter at Opposition.

Blood Moon follows a little the same idea with synth murmurs rolling on a texture which gives more in a dark ambient style. We can hear an industrial universe and its metallic rattles hidden behind a subdued veil, just to keep a nebulous touch to this track which becomes more convincing in the second part by orchestrations in the tone. Title with a more science-fiction or futuristic flavor, Jupiter at Opposition drags its bundle of sounds on a texture of machinery rumblings which will flow with a waterfall effect when a guitar blows it a more bohemian vision. Syzygy lets loose a resonant layer of which the brightness awakens a kind of heavenly harp. Her chords scroll on a pattern known by the lovers of romance on the metallic blue resonances of its oblong organ layer. A dreamy moment that becomes even more intense when a bass wave awakens light and shadow. The structure seems to us more intriguing, and its threatening texture moves towards orchestrations cut in staccato effects. These curt violins awaken sleeping arpeggios in a wicker basket. The fight is flamboyant with the intensity of the shadows versus that of the arpeggios which flicker and flicker while describing stormy circles. A very good track that Syzygy! Then comes Moonbow which is a beautiful night lullaby heard on a lake under the full moon. A pure delight! The sequences turn in the same direction and with more velocity in Hale - Bobb, a static track that rolls slowly like a musical cyclone sucking our emotions to spit them out in music. The track begins soberly with piano chords evolving like a sober procession. The sound envelope is sewn in the reverberations of these notes as well as the yet to be identified rattlings, not to mention an acrylic synth pad and a lazily humming bass line. In addition to the disparate sound effects, there are st r ands of distortion coming from the gradual intensity that takes hold of these elements to create this tornado that screws our ears to our headphones. Perseids is a very good magnetizing track that belongs behind a track like Hale - Bobb. The keyboard riffs paired with the guitar riffs in Perseids and Hale - Bobb, come back to feed the last spiral structure of CELESTIAL PHENOMENA. Nourished also by riffs and chords of violin and by percussions, Aurora Polaris also let shine these arpeggios gleaming like stars in a last title always so pleasant to hear, even if sometimes it smells the reheated-up. It's musical, beautiful, good and always pleasant to discover, to listen to as the great majority of the tracks that compose this brand-new album/download of Divine Matrix on the AD Music label.
