Padilla, Craig & Zero Ohms - When the Earth is far Away (39898)
Three years after their previous collaborative recording "Beyond the
Portal", Craig Padilla & Zero Ohms (aka Richard Roberts) hereby
return, adding a third chapter of gentle cosmic music to their
release-sheet. Richard and Craig explain they both did not add parts
to a track send by the other during the rather short long-distance
process of creation. Instead, each of them started bringing out things
and qualities among new tones in the other's contribution that their
creator had been completely unaware of.
On the six nicely crafted tracks making up the 63-minute "When the
Earth is Far Away", Zero Ohms soothing, organic and ethereal woodwind
instruments once more merge with Mr Padilla's slow evolving synth
textures, creating an inspired canvas of overall relaxed, drifting
space music to timeless effect and deep immersion.
These warm and floating synth washes along skillfully played flute
sounds make up grand cinematic farscapes as the slow-morphing
tapestries go by, sketching out the vast expanse, splendor and total
remoteness of deep space.
For me, the pinnacles on the release are the mesmerizing, soft glowing
"Blue Distance" (taking the listener far out into the great wide open)
along the grand design of space painted by the 18-minute
"Terraforming" (that very neatly rounds out the album).
All in all, "When the Earth is Far Away", makes a very nice effort and
(as Craig states) indeed is true spacemusic for the mind and would
suit very well to some awesome planetary visuals.

Fish on Friday - Shoot the Moon (29629)
Keyboard oriented progressive pop music is a genre I am especially
weak for, there are not too many bands around making this kinda music
but Belgium based Fish on Friday made my day for sure. Their debut
album "Shoot the moon" is just brilliant, the band is made up of the
keyboardists William Beckers and Frank Van Bogaert. Frank´s voice is
reminiscent of David Gilmour and also the fact that makes this album
so great. The songs and the production are ofcourse really good but
Frank´s vocal performance is topnotch! I can listen to this album over
and over again and never get tired, at times FOF bring thoughts to
Alan Parsons Project and in other moments I think of Genesis Calling
all stations album. Magic!

12661 V/A - After Midnight
The adventure AD Music began in 1989 with the publication of
Reflections, the first album of its founder David Wright. Since then,
the English label reached the high standards of artistic quality with
a constant quest for new artists and new musical orientations,
enriching so a catalog which covers all the spheres of contemporary
EM. And it's the reflection of "After Midnight". This last compilation
of AD Music is an impressive artistic window where 16 artists reveal
as much musical orientations which melt in the ears like oniric rustles.
The Pels Syndicate opens the ball with a technoïd track à la sauce
Kraftwerk. The rhythm of "Everybody" jumps of its muffled pulsations
from a loudspeaker to another around good orchestral arrangements of
which the violent jolts chop the vocoder effects and the voices pads
which melt into fine harmonious lassoes. "China Calling" brings us
into David Wright's Asian romances. It's a long hypnotic track with
dialogues in mute which draws its delicate rhythm around bongo kind of
percussions and a bass line with chords pounding slightly in the
harmonies of a melody flowing finely on a jerked debit. Sylvain
Carel's "Nucleogenesis" jumps up softly in the furrows of Caravansary.
Although less orchestral, the structure is just as much progressive
with a latent rhythm which increases all in nuance in the mists and
ethereal breaths of the Berber dunes where discreet sitar notes are
dancing and shrilling under brief iridescent lamentations. It's one of
the beautiful find from AD Music. "Sou ndtrack for a Fantasy" from
Robert Fox brings us in the harmonious and romantic corridors of AD
Music. The track is soft and very ethereal with a voice of goddess
which sighs in the vapors of a dreamy piano. It's soft. It's also very
melancholic. Steve Orchard's "Realm" is a delicate melody where fine
Tablas percussions bear the harmonies of an acoustic guitar which
espouses wonderfully orchestral arrangements weaved in melancholy. The
"Autumn Leaves" of Claudio Merlini is another soft melody which soaks
into some Eastern suspicions while that Bekki Williams' "And she Held
the Moon" shows us Ireland with an approach very near the poetic
aromas of Enya. After these 20 minutes of tenderness, Glenn Main's
"Deep Within" awakens our weakened senses with a cosmic rhythm à la
Jarre which swirls of its e-bass chords. The synth is melodious;
astride New Age with its panpipes tones, it caresses the rhythmic
jolts of a spherical rhythm.
It has been a while since I had heard Richard Bone. And "Eucalyptico"
wears well its title with a light rhythm which cavorts in a plain very
musical where harmony and simplicity are molding a catchy earworm.
With its heavy rhythm crossed by a bass line with flickering
pulsations, "Meltdown Se" from Code Indigo is a great teaser of the
mythical English group upcoming album. Between a vertiginous cosmic
ride and a good prog rock à la Porcupine Tree, the track is weaved in
the heavy riffs and solos of a guitar whipped by a stroboscopic line
of which the eroded contours embrace strong orchestral arrangements.
It's very promising! Fans will love that one. As for me, the big find
of AD Music is unarguably Divine Matrix, and the wonderful "Fractal
Dreams" explains why. This streaked spiral which swirls in its cosmic
elements is a jewel of New Berlin School. The tears of synth that are
saddened all over it are crossing the soul to dance lasciviously in
the trail of sequences to rotary a rcs. That's simply wonderful and
very heart rending and that explains the craze that I have for his
last album Atmospheric Variations. Dead Beat Project's "Memoires
Astrales" is a good lunar down-tempo soaked of an enveloping woman
voice which rests the subconscious, quite as the lounge tempo of
Geigertek on "Chorus girl Friday" while that "Ocean" is a soft
chill-out finely jerked by Dreamproject, the last acquisition of the
English label. The downloadable version of "After Midnight" includes 2
bonus tracks among which a very beautiful ambient musical landscape in
"Light Dream" from Acheloo. The movement is of a restful morphic peace
of mind with a slow waltz of synth lines which sing and float in a
quiet dream world. Paul Sills' "Parallel Dreaming" ends this very
beautiful compilation with an intense track filled by this clanic
approach of the peoples of sands which is in the heart of the last
realizations of AD Music label that this compilation invites you to
discover with 16 smal l jewels to the orientations as much diversified
as your fantasias.
