gr-256 Spyra - Dunst

It's by waves coming from the sonic West that "Trias" sets up the
rhythmic parameters of “Dunst”. Propelled by a surge of intensity from
the metallic woosh and waash, this ambient and dreamlike opening
switches for a polyphase rhythm that is fed with jerks. A mesh of
percussions, percussive effects and lines of sequences with hues as
diversified as their rhythmic direction are grafted to these multiple
spasmodic breaks while above, a wave wobbles and sings alone. These
multiple lines of sequences and pinches of percussions flirt with a
fusion between a technoid approach a la Spyra and a heavy sedentary
electronic rock fed by a plethora of sound effects that respect the
infinite borders of synths and of these making sounds machines. And if
a less intense phase comes up, it's to create a kind of breakdance
with an armada of percussive effects and percussions which are doing
dancing tap before the rich sound fauna reinstates its jewelry, includ
i ng sequences a bit organic. "Trias" paves the way to the other 5
structures whose musical and sound promiscuities open our ears to a
fascinating universe that can only belong to Wolfram der Spyra. It
took almost four years for the Eschwege musician to reopen Staub's
borders. And this time, Spyra attacks our hearing with a striking
album built on rhythmic crossroads where sequences and electronic
percussions fill a universe that would be as obscure as Staub's. The
title track begins a little on the premise of "Trias", except that the
rhythm that feeds most of its 10 minutes is eyeing a more technoid
approach with muffled pulsations that plasticize a leaping dance
approach. Jerking and jumping like kicks of horses attacked by a
wasp's nest, the sequences remain vivacious and incisive. The synth
pads invade this more rebellious structure and when "Dunst" touches an
ambiospherical phase, the electronic percussions modeled on Mojave
Plan (Tangerine Dream's White Eagle album) and Metal o n Metal
(Kraftwerk's TEE) redirects the pace into a lighter phase.
"Frozen Fountain" opens with a music sculpted in the anesthetic scents
of Klaus Schulze's Mirage. Mirroring like limpid drops in a crystal
universe, these drops of rhythm forge a stationary cadence that
displays the colors of Spyra with a complex approach that combines
lightness and intensity in the tones and permutations of the phases.
Light, since chords flutter like chimes related to the frivolity of
sonic snowflakes. Intense, because other chords are waltzing with a
graver reflect while espousing the light step of those more limpid
arpeggios. Another line of sequences rises without stopping, and
without reaching its point of explosion, giving a magnetic resonance
pattern to the spheroidal ballet of "Frozen Fountain". While streaks
shear the sound ceiling, other more vivid sequences, dancing like
scissors on a silvery hair, give another dimension to these sequencer
movements that shimmer and twirl in slightly s wirling breezes. The
jingles, as well as the softer passages, got hypnotizing me and tied
me to my earphones. This is the kind of title that can be played in a
loop while there is always an element of charm that emerges from
nowhere. And especially that "Altekunst" adopts this scheme, but in a
more ethereal approach. At least its opening, since its 2nd part
offers a keen and heavier structure. It's a fluid upward movement from
the sequencer that gives this rhythmical momentum a little after the 5
minutes bar. A very Berlin School movement that awakens a pool of more
aggressive sequences in their tonal colors. These tones shimmer
between resonant and organic colors, while the percussions nourish the
greed of saccades that rediscover a new decor with good sound effects.
"Staub Part II" shows all the differences between Staub and “Dunst”.
The violence in the tones as well as the distorted gurgles which are
distortion diffusers guide the drifting layers and the rhythm towards
a heavy a n d seductive approach of Berlin School surrounded by
sounding butterflies that flutter with their radiant colors. After an
opening full of sibylline breezes, "Tangible" offers a heavy but
lively sequencer movement that plays with its nuances and phase
changes in a setting where the spectral harmonies offer themselves a
feast of sequences that oscillate breathlessly. Disrupted by short
phases of ambient elements, the rhythm plays with its impulses to
feign strength and delicacy in a sound context sometimes noisy.
A feast for the ears, “Dunst” offers an EM built on unthinkable routes
of rhythms forged by the multiple facets of a sequencer, and its
innumerable mathematical probabilities, and electronic percussion. In
fact, Spyra has just raised the art of EM at a very high level. In my
mind, this is where a progressive vision of EM should be now. Despite
the chaos of these polyrhythmic structures, a perfume of musicality
emanates from the 72 minutes of this excellent album. What I r etain
the most is the color of its sequences whose tints radiate and rage in
patterns where the lack of cohesion suddenly becomes synonymous with
synchronicity. I speak very little of the atmospheres ... Swept by a
stormy sequencer and electronic percussions, they are consistent of
the levels reached in Staub. Which is not nothing, too! In the end,
here is an excellent album that can order a few listens, but this
patience will be rewarded in 1000 ways!

70814 Bluetech - Liquid Geometries

Always on the lookout for new talent that shakes the foundations of a
sometimes too quiet EM, the DiN label excels in the art of pulling a
rabbit out of its many hat! Either with a finely tuned or totally
daring compilation or yet by the discovery of a prolific artist hidden
in his studios, the boundaries of DiN flirt with the unimaginable. And
sometimes it gives very nice discoveries, like this splendid The
Secret Society by Lyonel Bauchet or the suave Music by Mirrors from
Mazmoneth. And this time, Ian Boddy introduces us to the world of
Bluetech that we discovered on the brilliant compilation Elements and
Particles and whose piece Magnetic Lullaby has make vibrated the
sensitive strings of my senses. Evan Bartholomew has a good track
record with several Psybient-style albums and musical productions for
video games and other audio-visual platforms that make him a busy
artist who doesn't hesitate a second to get out of his comfort zone. A
t r ue master in the music industry created and played with Modular
synths, Bluetech offers in “Liquid Geometries” a magical album for
sound lovers and to those who are always in a quest of a daring EM
very enjoyable to listen.
From the first breath of "Bardo Waves", we feel that our ears enter a
universe that we know but which is slightly tinted with variances and
differences. This breath and the orchestral waves rise in intensity
and once the threshold is reached, the fluid movement of the sequencer
structure a gentle rhythm where are grafted more noisy shadows. The
decor is made of cosmic tweets and of sound texts battling on this
structure which goes out momentarily in order to comeback with a
greater sonic strength. The mesh of rhythm and ambiences projects
impulses until reaching its level of accentuation, while the sequencer
feeds our imagination with its analog texture which flirts with the
hypnotic rhythms of Klaus Schulze, era Body Love. "Vessels" also
offers a delicate rh ythmic approach that progresses stealthily in a
blizzard of tones in suspension. The sequences jump in a mirror
effect, amplifying a structure that remains motionless. Percussive
effects swirl around and effects of big industrial waash are whipping
its quiet motion. Here again, the sound texture which envelops the
rhythm is perfumed of the great analog years. This analog heat gives a
lot of relief to the 9 structures of “Liquid Geometries”, even the
most ambient ones. And it's even more delicious in "Helix" reminiscent
of Tomita's best with this fluffy dance that twirls around another
rhythmic structure. "Crystalline Forms" is a little gem! Following the
same approach as "Helix", the music is perched on a bed of sequences
that swarm like violin bows tickling an oscillating waves bank. These
melodic spasms shiver like a Morse code dialogue in a sphere where
cosmic and oceanic waves weave a fascinating surreal landscape. After
a "Subterranea" frozen in its ocher laments, "Dawn Ascent " proposes a
soft rhythm which wanders in the spheres of Moondawn. The sequencer
traces its hypnotic rhythmic valley form with warm sequences that wave
like balls of silk on an emerald bed while murmurs and sharp streaks
come out from a thick tonal fog. There is more! Fascinating gurgles
and percussions resonating like clogs on cement stick to the addictive
rhythm of "Dawn Ascent" and guide it to a second part that ties us up
to our headphones with a sound fauna teeming of percussive tones, like
in a superb psybient. I believe that it's the pinnacle of the many
strong moments of “Liquid Geometries” which plunges even more into a
world of psybient without rhythms with "Tranquility Gate". Obviously,
we are far from tranquility here! Just as with "Resonating Heart" and
its wall of ambiances, made in the bricks of Steve Roach, which
encloses and keep silent a rhythmic approach done in a nervous and
stormy sequencer. "Underground Lakes" ends this first Bluetech album
on the DiN label wit h these ambient elements of the American
synthesist which wrap a quiet movement structured on layers of breezes
as obscure as those which ooze from the walls of a cave.
Offered in manufactured CD and in a downloadable format, “Liquid
Geometries” offers 60 minutes of beautiful soundscapes which flirt
with all the fragrances of the wonderful realm of EM. The hive of
Bluetech is made of sonic honey as sparkling for the ears than tasty
for those who demand a vast soundscape which has no boundaries, but
which remains nevertheless in a very seductive melodic niche. There
are no weaknesses in this album which extends its addictive power
listening after listening.
