gr-074 Boots, Ron - Dreamscape

By glancing through Ron Boots' biography we are capable of noticing
the impressive road map of the founder of the Dutch electronic
movement (Netherlands School) and the internationally recognized
Groove label. The career of Ron Boots began in 1987 with Linear Waves,
an opus realized and distributed on cassette format. Format that was
going to support the release of his 5 following works. Initially
realized in 1990 on the Synteam label, which became Groove,
"Dreamscape" is about dreams. Reveries and lucid dreams which are
skillfully transposed on a music where rhythms and ambiences are
separating the melancholy from hope. With this album, which was chosen
as the best album by the German Schwingungen Club, Ron Boots had aimed
at the summit and stayed there since. In fact, "Dreamscape" explains
by its structures and music all of Ron Boots' impact on the chessboard
of contemporary EM.
It's with hesitating pulsations to outlines eroded by silvery echoes
that "Cougarland" is settling a slow rhythm fed by a sequential
approach which has difficulty in climbing a spiral ascent. The rhythm
is heavy and slow, as the steps of a puma that surrounds his prey.
Looking for the support of some fine percussions of Tablas kind, the
tempo swirls under the scattered breaths of a flute which loses its
harmonies in the singings of a synth with dreamy solos which
harmonizes its harmonious reflections with suave choirs, wrapping the
delicate staccato of "Cougarland" of a soft oniric approach. "The
Stand" is a wonderful title which displays its 14 minutes by
interposed phases where the rhythms are switching forms for ambiances
into hybrid spaces. One would believe to hear the first sequential
stammering of Steve Roach and Edgar Froese's Drunken Mozart in the
Desert on a tribal approach of Vangelis and his Opera Sauvage. The
intro takes back this charming fusion of slightly jerky s ynth breaths
which sound like flutes and choirs chanting a celestial nursery rhyme.
Chords sounding like hollow knocks of xylophone come to cavort around
this delicate approach while gradually Ron Boots surrounds his long
procession of a beautiful musical pattern which goes by increasing
with all the sweetness that commands reverie. Little by little "The
Stand" becomes besieged by a threatening veil while the rhythmic path
goes astray towards somber pulsations which bite the ambience and make
it swirl in a beautiful spheroidal movement filled by harmonious
sequences which twirl around beneath heavy resonant sails where the
harmonies and rhythms are embracing in a surprising allegorical
symbiosis. The energy dissipates and the sequences are changing skin,
borrowing the delicately jerky breaths of a synth which subdivides
constantly its lines into flutes and angelic choirs of which the
dreamy impacts are delicately harpooned by these tinkling of glass and
Tablas percussions which roam in search of a rhythm to be shaped in a
space became ambient and idyllic. As for me, "The Stand" and the
surprising bolero with a philharmonic crescendo à la Vangelis that is
"Rivers" are two inescapable titles of Ron Boots' repertoire to nest
on "Dreamscape". "Silent Nature" is a beautiful ambient musical
landscape with uncountable synth layers, some passives and others more
musical, which float and surround the ephemeral pulsations of a sleepy nature.
This sort of ambient structure which encircles a fauna of mislaid
percussions is also on "Cry of the Heart" where synth layers to
silvery breaths cogitate with choirs and lamentations of whales. A
warm breeze of Orion frees fine star-studded particles which ring on a
carpet of mist and "Dreamscape Part I" enters into our ears with its
tones of musical anvil which shine among keyboards riffs fluttering
into an enchanting harmonious ballet. Like a storm of sonorous ions,
this long prelude to a 2nd part totally independent inhale the
peaceful harmonies of a static ballet à la Steve Roach with its
sparkling arpeggios which turn in a delicate stationary spiral and its
choirs to hatched timbres which wrap this virginal approach.
"Dreamscape Part II" begins with a beautiful ballad where Ron
Doesborg's acoustic guitar caresses the voice of Desiree Derksen who
recites, in Esperanto, a poem of Reina de Jong. The dreamlike approach
is fading little by little into the scattered percussions and
resounding breaths, plunging "Dreamscape Part II" towards some more
steady percussions which hammer a rhythm of lead nearby shimmering
arpeggios. Heavy synth waves wrap up this implosive storm while the
keys of xylophones blown in glass are courting the heavy tribal
tom-toms and the hoarse breaths of an illusory trombone, plunging
"Dreamscape Part II" in an intense static bubbling which calm down its
lyrical anger in the soothing blades of synth to iridescent prisms. A
new version of "Rivers" ends this edition of "Dreamscape" on Groove
and its pulsations which increase their boleric heaviness are always
so intense. Only the layers and lines of synth are taking a profound
philharmonic essence, restoring to this intense title such a nobility
that was lacking to it but of which we hardly noticed on the original
version so much it's immensely beautiful.
"Dreamscape" is a very beautiful album where the powerful or
motionless rhythms embrace sweet seraphic ambient phases. And whether
it's through his ambiences or his rhythms, the strength of Ron Boots
lies in this capacity to structure and tie melodies with an uncommon
ease. It's an inescapable that I recommend strongly and which will
introduce you to the musical universe of an excellent composer who has
his place beside Klaus Schulze, Manuel Göttsching, Edgar Froese,
Vangelis and Steve Roach. Big names in EM from whom we perceive a
clear influence on Ron Boots.
