62977 Airsculpture - Traveling Light

Recorded at the E-Day 2015 festival in Oirschot, the Netherlands,
“Travelling Light” takes us back to the intricate structures which
have made up the essence of Graveyard Shift. Either be with a long
track of almost an hour where Adrian Beasley, John Christian and Peter
Ruczynski develop an electronic music always faithful to the signature
of Airsculpture.
An introduction of atmospheres where we float with Mellotron nebulous
pads and lot of chthonic voices. Beyond these sound shadows rises a
synth song whose nasal tone imitates that of a saxophone with tenderly
moving solos. A thin line of distortions opens an avenue for beautiful
pads of an old organ around the 10 minutes. The processional movement
becomes more austere for a short moment, the time that the sequencer
gets out of its silence to structure the first rhythmic phase of
"Traveling Light". Under white noises, radioactive effects and
ectoplasmic chants, the structure of the seque ncer extends a good
rhythmic bipolarity which reaches a vertiginous peak rather quickly.
The movement is frenzied with tones of both wooden and metallic balls
twirling on a conveyor manhandled by mechanical spasms. Fog patches
spread the usual mysticism effects at the Berlin School as synth lines
bicker a tonal intensity with the distortions of a guitar. The
rhythmic structure continues its spasmodic phase with sequencers as
frenetic as a dozen hands beating tense skins without rhythmic
cohesion, while the scenery is composed of synth lines which twirl and
twirl in banks of mechanized fog. Breathless, the beats reach an
exhausted point in these benches around the 32nd minute, establishing
the first ambiospherical phase, I'm not talking the introduction, in
"Traveling Light". Misty and fluttered tunes pass through this
5-minute passage where another rhythmic structure gets to try building
a new life. Less explosive and nevertheless persistent, this 2nd phase
emerges more vividly aro u nd the 45th minute with clear sequences
which leap like Bambi's feet on a frozen pond. Always woven tight, the
ambiences evaporate when sequences filled of organic radiations give
an unexpected heaviness to a final that justifies its length by the
addition of good solos, guitars and synths, but also with a sequencer
on the edge of exploding so much its roars vibrate of distortions.
This is some good Airsculpture that won't disappoint their fans.
"Convoi Exceptionel" is an excellent title that is tasted a little
more easily in its shortened envelope. From the opening, a pulsating
rhythm is densely covered by clouds of shadowy synth and by sinusoidal
waves. Distorted keys bursting with ectoplasmic tones get in this
dance for one-legged people on steroids that decorative elements
unique to the universe of EM cover in a shroud of sonic oddities.
Synth solos pierce this soundscape and fly over a rhythmic structure
which crumbles under the weight of its elements. And if the rhythm
reache s a harmonic fluidity, some keys remain shadowed by distortions
until "Convoi Exceptionel" reaches a saturation point around 6
minutes. A phase where a more conventional movement of the sequencer
makes its keys palpitate in an analog heat and where "Convoi
Exceptionel" flies to a solid Berliner electronic rock filled by
chthonic humming and by sequences which jump so strongly, even with
shadows of white noises clinging to their palpitations, in order to
crash in a rock final such as a Deep Purple without Ritchie Blackmore
nor Ian Paice.
“Travelling Light” is another solid opus from Airsculpture. It's a big
electronic rock where the rare moments of atmospheres are hardly
quieting down neurons excited by these rhythmic designs always
elusive. And these tones eroded by white noises and by distortions
bring the convoluted rhythms of the English trio to levels comparable
to the best of both worlds of the Berlin and the England School, which
meet here in an impressive and rather explos ive cocktail of these 78
minutes of “Travelling Light”.

24401 Pickford, Andy - Vanguard 3

To be a fan of Andy Pickford can turn out destabilizing! I am not a
fan from the very beginning, but I learnt to know the artist and to
like his music since the adventure of Spank the Dark Monkey and Binar
in the early 2000's. And after an absence of about 10 years, he made a
strong comeback with the Vanguard trilogy begun in 2015 on the AD
Music label. Since then, he widely compensated these years far from
the scene of EM with not less than 10 albums in 2 years. And each of
those album hides traps of seduction, otherwise of addiction. That
takes some doing! Destabilizing because AP touches everything with the
fervor and a rage to put his fans on a foot of alert by jumping from a
style to another with as much ease as grace. In so doing, each album
becomes an opened door towards a wonderful world of sounds, of rhythms
and of ambience which are as well attractive as puzzling, like in this
“Vanguard III”.
The adventure begins with a horn of plenty which let drops its sound
prisms from the heavens, so pouring a delicate ethereal approach where
ring a beautiful variety of celestial bells. "Free all Angels" leans
from now on a purely electronic rhythm which is transformed into a
good rock. The bass is throbbing and its humming sometimes gets lost
in full resounding layers of which the hoarse radiances try to forge
fine stroboscopic circles. The percussions are in the tone and the
synths decorate a sibylline beautification with pearled harmonies and
layers of absent voices, which murmur in the background of this
decoration, and arrangements of trumpets which give a festive air to
this liberation of the angels. The tone is given for an album where
every title abounds in soundscapes which feeds completely the voracity
of our ears. In 2012, Andy Pickford realized a series of 6 E.P. among
which EP#04: Ritual. It's from this E.P. that is taken the very
Electronica "Ritual (Electro music Mix)". A mixture between Techno and
Tran c e Goa, the music is lively and jerky like in these electronic
parties where we turn around beneath wild stroboscopic effects.
Besides all his talents, AP sings! Like here with the slow dance beat
which is "Could You Cry". The music flows behind a wide curtain of
mist, so giving this tint to the voice of AP. The tempo is hyper slow
and the arrangements influence an approach of a love song where cry
superb synth solos. Lise loves it and I have to admit that it passes
well enough. We stay in the field of ballad with "Rise" and its
circular movement which increases its intensity gradually in order to
explode in another good electronic rock. That becomes rather intense
and the voice of a Berber woman adds a touch of exoticism to a strong
title which will turn pale on the other hand in front of the well of
intensity that is the powerful "Ahnenerbe". After a very glamorous
electronic rock in "Schadenfreude", another title with an evolution
controlled by an emotionalism amplified by divers e arrangements and
especially by the presence of a good synth / guitar with striking
harmonious soloes, "Ahnenerbe" nails us in our armchair. Very filmic,
the music streams like a thousand of lapping which sparkle and sing as
these circles which extend by the grace of a finger over the peaceful
surface of a lake. Timid, the intensity of the circles increases its
emotional and dramatic value with heavy percussions and orchestral
arrangements, in particular this angelic choir, which give the shivers
that our soul needs to confirm our thirst of life. It's powerfully
dramatic and we search everywhere so that our ears swallows all of
this sound scenario which ends up like a storm on the ice floes of
time. The voices of the NASA and the electronic chirpings reminds us
that with Andy Pickford, we can expect everything!
Even in this mosaic of styles, AP manages to weave thin links which
unite the 10 titles and some 71 minutes of “Vanguard III”. The
electronic chirpings go beyond the bord ers of "Ahnenerbe" and throw
themselves into the static movement of "Transit" where riffs,
orchestrations of the Dance Music years and effects get torn between a
rock and a good EDM. The density and the sound fauna is abundant here
as everywhere in “Vanguard III”. And this is true, no matter the
styles. The weeping violin of "Elektra" reminds it to us with a
beautiful ballad, sometimes light and sometimes intense, which
supports very well the harmonious voice of an Elves woman. Still here,
there is a cinematographic link to be weaved with rhythmic impulses
which fly away like a knight leaving his lady-love just before the end
credits of a movie. "Ancestry" is a title with dominant moods. Still
here, the effects of goddesses voices caress melancholic chords where
a delicate stroboscopic thread gets worn out. Catchy and filled by
tenderness! "Wished" ends this last part of the Vanguard trilogy like
the music of a pompous movie. The effects of orchestrations are as
much poignant as ve r y varied and the title progresses in strength
with sequences which flash hard and around these felted percussions
which are synonyms of Electronica's psybeats but which it not totally
that. A very good title which will give you the same effect as
"Ahnenerbe" and which closes a logical conclusion to the 2 first ones
Vanguard where Andy Pickford has fun to fill our ears of delights. I
heard that a new album, of the kind of Harmonics in the Silence and
Shadow at the Gate is at our doors… Yummy Yummy…
