16001 V/A - E-Scape 2017

For a 3rd consecutive year, the staff of the English label of EM AD
Music organizes the mega festival of electronic music; E-Scape. The
artists featured this year are as much prestigious as on the last two
years, as shown this other great compilation album of titles unedited
and/or performed in concert which are offered by these artists. The
previous 2 E-Scape albums overflowed of finds and this “E-Scape 2017”
doesn't make exception with a good balance between good electronic
rocks emblazoned of invigorating, heavy and minimalist rhythms as well
as landscapes of lunar atmospheres and others more celestial where the
harmonious side keeps its special place, as in the tradition of the
England School model.
The album begins with "Man and Machine" from Glenn Main and his way to
create some hyper contagious electronic rock anthems. The rhythm is
heavy and lively. It swirls on good sequences, electronic percussions
which make very Jarre as well as BOOM-BOOM pulsations which place the
music between a solid techno for zombies and a very French School
cosmic rock. The melody, a bit spectral, is superb and flows with a
tone very near the Martenot waves. It's very good and we would all
love that Jean Michel Jarre goes to this style which is between Daft
Punk and the Chronology album. This is candy to my ears! Perfumed a
lot from Carys' sighs, the introduction of "Dream Flight" puts down a
very ethereal soundscape. The arpeggios fly lightly from almost
everywhere and their unpredictable races crate delicate loops of
rhythms which roll in circles through more bright and more harmonious
arpeggios, as well as sequences which crawl sneakily. The first 4
minutes are flowing very quickly, so much that we are surprised by the
downfall of the percussions which sets in motion at around 4:40
minutes. The rhythm is bumpy and a flute joins its charm to the
delights of Carys whose moans reveal a veil of murmurs which play with
our sense of h earing since a couple of minutes already. The rhythm
will remain always delicate, even after a short ambiospherical phase
towards the finale where the Carys/Wright tandem adds a little more
techno vigor without really being swallow by this style. It's not at
the height of the splendid Prophecy album, but we are not that far!
During the 2 first editions of E-Scape, I had caught myself
discovering the charms of the music of big names in the domain,
Stephan Whitlan and Paul Ward, who had always escaped to my attention
in the course of my discoveries in the wonderful universe of EM. This
time, the superb attack of the energetic oscillations of Modulator ESP
(Jez Creek) in "Extropic Sound Con?gurations" brought me back to the
first foundations of the electronic music with a structure of
minimalist rhythm which is use as base to Jez Creek's numerous
acrobatic solos. These oscillations beat a pace which makes drum our
fingers after a good 2 minutes of an ambiospherical landscape, r i ch
in organic chirpings, which drift like the current of a sonic river.
The synth adds sibylline ornaments with spectral lamentations
stretched at the maximum. Oscillating loops are going mad after the
point of 2 minutes by jostling in order to structure a pure electronic
rhythm which rolls like a train through mountainous landscapes,
altering its race and multiplying its charms. The perfumes of good old
Tangerine Dream, in particular this undulatory rhythm, bursts from
everywhere after the bar of 9 minutes. Very good!
I knew Peter Challoner of name but I had never heard his music which
was described to me as mainly ambient and improvised. Thus what wasn't
my surprise to hear the very cheerful and contagious rhythm of "Spirit
Escaping"! Agile electronic percussions, and their glints slamming
like some elytron of metal, as well as crisscrossed movements of
jumping sequences are structuring a dynamic rhythmic pace with
oscillations which jump in all directions. Very harmonious, th e synth
throws its effects without forgetting to whistle harmonies which stay
stick to our eardrums. Another strong title! Broekhuis, Keller and
Schönwälder continues to amaze us by bonding here the longest title of
this compilation which is literally worth its purchase price. "Rythme
de Croisière" shows with color the spirit of its title with a long
structure which keeps its calm with layers of voices which caress us
like rays of sunshine among solos and harmonies from synths which
exchange their sedative perfumes for an appearance of electronic
guitar of which the solos are the equal of a cosmic blues. The layers
of voices and these keyboard keys which ring like those of Rick Wright
from Pink Floyd give a seraphic depth, so much that it's clearly in
the continuity of the last opuses of the German trio. Barry Neilsen,
whom I discovered in previous E-Scape 2016, returns back to us with
another landscape of meditative atmospheres. "Leftie" is of a cosmic
tenderness very difficult to describe so much the multiplication of
the waves and of their impacts which are drawing a cosmic current in
movement. It's very englobing and it's ideal to glide slowly in our
inner mind away from others. I was looking forward to hear "System
Six" from Mark Shreeve and interpreted by Arc during the Netherlands
E-Live Festival, back in 2007. And no, I was not disappointed. Good
old Shreeve played with the taste of today! I have nothing to add,
except that it’s as good, very heavy even, than the version of 1983
from the Assassin album. Arc moreover will present a whole new set for
this festival.
Like me, I suspect that many of you wouldn’t go to this 2017 E-Scape
Festival which is held at Suffolk, situated on the east coast of
England. Know that the organizers offer the possibility of hearing all
the played music, in very good audio quality, by the purchase of a
virtual ticket. A very good initiative for all the fans of EM from all
over the world which should be followed by other organizers of
festivals. One finds all the info on the web site of AD Music. In the
meantime, there is always this superb compilation of the artists who
will perform on Saturday May 13th. And no, I am not a sponsor of the
event, but I like EM and there is some very beautiful on this “E-Scape
2017”. Just imagine this festival!

=========CONCERTS ==========

Tangerine Dream at Ballhaus Rixdorf
23/June/2017 - 8pm

Das Ballhaus Rixdorf (früher bekannt unter den Namen Weltfilmbühne und
Rixi) wurde in den 70er Jahren des letzten Jahrhunderts von Berliner
Bands wie Ton Steine Scherben, Karthago und auch Tangerine Dream als
Proberaum genutzt.
Durch eine Verkettung von Zufällen bekamen wir nun die Möglichkeit an
diesen historisch wichtigen Ort für ein spezielles Konzert zurückzukehren.
Tangerine Dream werden neben Klassikern auch eine lange
Echtzeit-Komposition auf Grundlage der Improvisations-Techniken der
70er Jahre spielen.
Am 24.06.2017 gibt es darüberhinaus im Rahmen der „Good Vibrations“
Ausstellung des Berliner Musikinstrumentenmuseums einen weiteren
Tangerine Dream-Auftritt.
Dieses Konzert war nach wenigen Stunden ausverkauft - deshalb freuen
wir uns umso mehr für Freitag, den 23.06.2017 im Ballhaus Rixdorf ,
