11046 Kistenmacher, Bernd - Disintegration

A droning filled of smoke evaporates its opaque shell in a multitude
of foggy lines which disintegrate and re-form in screams, like the
furious shouts of angels of the apocalypse came bury the last vestiges
of the mankind. It's throughout this nightmarish din which is shining
of intensity that "Disintegrated World" introduces us to the last
musical fresco of Bernd Kistenmacher and his very worried look on the
direction and the future of our planet. First studio album of Bernd
Kistenmacher since Paradise in 2014, “Disintegration” follows the
paths of this album with a profoundly cinematic approach where the
intensity and the orchestral gravity seems less stifling than
Paradise. If "Disintegrated World" is heavy of burden, the opening of
"Lost in Time" is all opposite with a fabulous dance of sequenced
arpeggios which draw a melody, eater of ears, which loses of its
glossiness in the veils of orchestrations soaked of mysteries, of a
cloudiness which augments its presence with a dismaying heaviness. The
synth lines divide a state of despondency with murmurs of absent
voices and especially layers of apocalyptic clarions which clear a
sinister perfume, otherwise of anxiety. "Running Backwards" rivets us
to our chair with a delicate sequenced pace which dances with its more
translucent shadow. Very hypnotic, this movement circulates such as in
an allegorical carousel which goes up and goes down with a bewitching
mockery. The layers are very aerial and release some little prisms
which make the circular movement of the sequencer glitters. "Sand in
the Desert" is a short title as intriguing as "Disintegrated World"
with voices which whinge in a desert dirtied of dark dusts and by
iodized particles. So many vibes and sounds in hardly 180 seconds!
This short track leads us to the wonderful "Reflecting Ice". Its first
steps are of an overwhelming heaviness. One would say a huge double
bass which has difficulty in filtering its notes. But its movement and
its nuances are completely delicious. A bass-drum supports with
difficulty this pace with the delicate riffs of a synth and its trap
of orchestral mists. Trapped in this double bass, the melody evolves
with subtle variations in the tone, as in the movement, bringing even
more this delicious lento movement towards our cerebral lands.
Wonderful, fascinating and insidiously poignant! Afterward we enter
into the very floating, ambiospherical domain of “Disintegration”.
Orchestral layers, where float absent voices and tears of cellos of
which the slow movements tear up the moods of "On the Edge of
Existence", flow like a torrent which dives between our ears. This is
poetry written on music partitions! "Frozen Magic" is more linear with
a more implosive finale which goes out in silence. Now it's time for
the title-track! The introduction of "Disintegration" begins with
jingles and overstrung organic beatings, like a fauna of hexapods on
total delirium. Powerfu l synth layers, like massive waves of organ,
immerse this fauna and takes us by the feelings in order to make us
waltz with the unknown. Without rhythm but knotted around violent
impulses of layers and this always seductive line of bass, the first
minutes of "Disintegration" swallow us in its whirlwind of emotions
and in its memories of a session of Paradise. The variations in the
multiple arches of the sound waves solidify an interest which
increases as soon as our senses seized that the constant crescendo is
not only a flash in the pan. One mesmerizing sequence sparkles at the
edge of 8 minutes. Its wild blinkings espouse the placidity of a bass
pulsations line in order to evaporate as soon as the synth spreads its
charms with solos more ethereal than cabalistic. The movement is
covered of an attractive hypnotic approach when some chords get stir
with the notes of a sitar modelled by the electronic creativity,
pushing the finale of “Disintegration” in a phase of domination of the
s pecters which will continue to mop the vestiges of our passage on
Earth. Hat to you Bernd for another brilliant opus of creativity,
intensity and emotionalism!

76821 Boddy, Ian - As Above So Below

You remember this period when the albums of EM golden of a very
Cartesian approach had an average of 40 minutes to the meter? A vinyl
with about 20 minutes on both sides? There was no place to
improvisation nor to lengthes! Like on this last Ian Boddy's album
which we would nevertheless have wished longer. Splendid from the
first second to the last, “As Above So Below” is as a jewel which is
brought out of this nice time where the delight of our ears was never
quenched. The album is offered in vinyl with a number of pressings
limited to 250, as well as in CD with a number limited to 500 copies
and finally in download. And I would tell you that if you have one
album to buy this year, that should be “As Above So Below”.
The adventure begins with slow and quiet synth wave of which the
cosmic appearance of is betrayed by an oceanic melody where the astral
murmurs are like seraphic chants. So beautiful as poignant, the slow
morphic march of "A s Above So Below" is like a synthesized adagio or
else a symphony of whimperings of which the contrasts feed Isaac
Newton's vision when he wrote in 1860 that which is below is like that
which is above and that which is above is like that which is below.
The very orchestral approach of this title places the ambient music
style at another level so much it can be filmic or cosmic. We believe
then that this last Ian's opus is as his last odes of atmospheres?
Make no mistake! After a short ambiosonic introduction, quite as
beautiful as the one of "As Above So Below", "Quantum of Memory"
offers a superb structure of ambient rhythm with crystal clear
sequences which are slightly knocked down by the delicate roundness of
the beatings from a bass line. Another line of sequences stirs in
background. The sharp keys draw a spheroidal ballet, like these snips
of scissors in the Barber of Seville. These two lines of sequences
complete marvellously this duel of rhythm versus harmony which fades i
n the tranquillity. "Time Lapse" pursues the phase of delight which
began with the first breaths of "As Above So Below" with a very
melancholic approach where a keyboard shells its chords in the mist
before spreading a very nice and touching melody which swirls like a
lullaby for those tormented nights. This is a great track! What knocks
then in this last Ian Boddy's opus is this constant duel between its
ambiences. And it is at this moment when the title of its last album
takes all its sense. The melody tapped on a veil of shadows glitters
of freshness while its carpet of cloudiness sends its contrast with a
fascinating opposition of the charms. That sounds like some very good
Philip Glass in a macabre movie.
"Shrine" falls between our ears with a steady pulsation which pounds
in a cloud of shadows. The Moog makes vibrate the floor with a line of
resounding bass which feeds a structure among which the furtive
approach and the synth layers are reminiscences of Redshift. Slamming
percussions are inviting themselves in this dance which refuses to be
born. We have 2 sonic paintings here; the one which aims to be a good
Berlin School and the other one which is a beginning of an Electronica
too frail to pierce the wall of the first one. Shadows get there under
the appearance of synth layers whose curvatures are floating like the
hypnotic chants of vampires. And while we believe that the misty moods
will be on top of everything, the rhythm devotes itself to the
pleasure with a kind of stubborn ride which is rose on very good
percussions and which remains coated by superb orchestrations. "The
Thaumaturge" rectifies the vision of Jean Michel Jarre concerning the
fusion Electronica and EM of a Berliner style or of cosmic moods. Ian
Boddy offers here a phase of increasing and hypnotic rhythm without
glitter nor superfluous with an approach of very intelligent techno
where the metallic rhythm, the gloomy ambiences and the melody coexist
without difficulties in a very creative envelope. "One Day" ends this
Ian Boddy's brilliant opus like "Time Lapse" has closed the face A of
the LP. That is to say with an approach of nostalgia which hides from
a melodious upward walking of a piano through a carpet of buzzing mist
and of delicious orchestrations. This walking ends in a symphony of
hollow winds which keeps prisoner the last beatings of "One Day".
Splendid! There is nothing more to add!
