FD.Project - Quadea (29898)

The silky musical universe of F.D.Project rests on his influences for
Mike Oldfield and Tangerine Dream. Like the wonderful musician of
Reading, Frank Dorittke harmonizes his rhythms and ambiances with a
superb minimalist approach. In so doing, his works infiltrate our ears
with a delicate oniric approach. And Quadea is the proof by 10 that
even if the German synthesist/guitarist borrows the same melodic paths
since about 10 years, there is always this little something that
seduces. Divided into 6 parts, the rhythmic story of The Other Side of
F.D.Project... Quadea evolves in each of its acts. Passing from slow
and waltzing to heavy and intensive, this rhythmic structure preserves
however its will to stand firm over a main minimalist sequential line
which throws us melodies fixed on twinkling spirals. Night lullabies
which swirl and thread one's way through the rhythms and ambiences,
such as innocents ritornellos, on rhythmic structures to s low evolutions.

Limpid sequences arise out of heavy reverberations to move stealthily.
Hesitating, they take long time drawing the puny rhythm of "Quadea
Part One" which beats under smooth strata of a Mellotron synth. Blown
by the winds of ether, the sequences activate the pace with an
uncertain harmonious layout that percussions are grasping of symmetric
strikings, supporting the minimalist linear movement of "Quadea Part
One" which breathes the soft blows of a foggy Mellotron and the
beautiful floating solos of a synth filled by the analog fragrances of
the Vintage years. You like the hypnotic and harmonious rhythm of
"Quadea Part One"? Then you will devour the 5 other parts. Emerging
out of Didge hoarse blows, "Quadea Part Two" follows the precepts of
"Part One" with a harmonious sequential movement which swirls in
semicircle and flows under intense strata of a synth which subdivides
its choirs and solos. The 2nd part wakes the soul with a beautiful
approach of cello which covers a kind of clanic prayer. A delicate
torrent of crystal clear and fluid sequences is hatching from the
cracklings introductory of "Part Three" which presents a more lively
rhythmic structure. One of Quadea's charms lies in its minimalist
sequences which espouse the same melodic tangents and this no matter
the modifications in the structures of rhythm. On "Part Three", the
bewitchment is striking. Especially with the corrosive guitar of Frank
D. Project who throws heavy riffs and incisive solos on a rhythm
become weightier. With the efficiency of the machine drums, we have
the feeling to enter in the territories of progressive rock.
After an intro imprinted by a mysterious veil, where pulsations
threaten under spectral lamentations, "Quadea Part Four" swirls on a
superb sequential movement. Sequences which spin in perfect hiccupping
circles that some strong drum hits are framing of a heavy rotary
movement ennobled by solos from a tortuous synth. A synth which also
releases harmonious pads with airs of Tangerine Dream of the 70's.
"Part Five" is opening to our ears with chords of guitar which roam
among metal breaths. This very musical intro is lulled by iridescent
breaths which deadens in a canvas of percussions and pulsations of
which the uncertain strikings drum towards a harsh and jerky rhythm
with circular keys which swirl beneath suave and tearful solos of a
synth as much poetic as melancholic. Breezes of a hooting synth moan
in blue breaths, spreading the morphic intro of "Quadea Part Six"
which is the piece of resistance of The Other Side of F.D.Project...
Quadea. Melodious synth pads are sparkling a nd waddling through these
iodized breezes, drawing a hypnotic sequenced movement which skips
under splendid waves of a warm Mellotron. The fragile rhythm of "Part
Six" is caramelizing little by little, holding to another string of
sequences which roll like a discreet train under the dense layers of a
synth as dark as harmonious. And it's in these Mellotron clouds and
silvered breezes that the anvil rhythm of "Quadea Part Six" is
flooding our ears with all the nostalgic reminiscences of Tangerine
Dream's vintage years.

The Other Side of F.D. Project... Quadea is of the seed of the
beautiful albums of an analog Berlin School. Frank Dorittke is passed
master in the art of harmonious magnetism minimalist with his crystal
clear sequences, forged in the distant corridors of Tubular Bells,
which weave some pretty nice ear worms singing in the electronic
crusades to fragrances of Tangerine Dream, of the Baumann years. And
Quadea is effectively the answer to Nocturna. It's a logical suite to
the last opus of F.D.Project who will certainly know how to charm us
again with his ceaseless harmonious structures which just have this
little something different, from album to album, to lull us between
two universes. This lasts since Electronic Dreams in 2003 and this
continues since.

Nerell, Loren - Slow Dream (25494)

In Long Beach, California, based composer and ethnomusicologist, Loren
Nerell, is known as avid admirer of Indonesian native styles of
gamelan music. His location recordings from trips to Bali and Java,
which document everyday's life and events, are again utilized and
processed into deeply meditative stream of drones, released as Loren's
7th full length recording, but this time as a premiere album on
Projekt, where he joins his fellow traveller Steve Roach, who has
added his mastering wizardy to "Slow Dream".

Opening long-form "Mentation" clocks to nearly 29 minutes with serene,
slow-motion endlessly drifting and soothingly circling resonant
cloudscapes. It creates strongly meditative states that graciously
float between the waking and sleep, between the sound and silence. The
title, 10 and half minutes long composition "Slow Dream" dives
straightly into chasmal mammoth drone realms strenghtened by various
subterranean rumblings and otherwor ldly tinkles and outbursts. Gentle
and remote tribal beats blanketed by fog join the stage too and invite
the listener on a deeply sonorous and immersing journey. "A Sense Of
Presence", another longer composition, remains in shadowy, rather
dissonant and nearly transcendental domains with gradually expanding
heavy drone zones and assorted background unsettling sonic tremors.
All subterranean ghosts are awaken by this deeply cavernous adventure.
"Persistence Of Dream Imagery", as indicated by its title, is
tranquilly sculpted dronespace with few occasional industrial noises
thrown in and highly mesmerizing meditative piece that brings "Slow
Dream" into the conclusion.

"Slow Dream" is skillfully crafted recording of immensely subterranean
atmospheres originated of various gamelans, powerfully evocative and
magically transporting!!! A must have for all explorers of
mysteriously alluring sonic escapades!!! 4-panel eco disc wallet with
cover images by Thierry Moreau and graphic design by Sam Rosenthal
precisely interplay with the sonic content.

2012. Richard Gürtler / Bratislava, Slovakia
