Hi All.

We received a sad mail from KEBU

++ " Dear Ron,
My health has crashed and I have developed a heart problem, so I am
forced to cancel my whole tour, including my gig at E-Live in Oirschot:


I am so sorry and it feels really bad to cancel the gig, but it's the
only option for me now, because I need time for recovery and won't be
able to carry out a tour this autumn. I'm sorry for all the extra work
that this will cause you. Kind regards,
Sebastian " ++

We hope he will recover soon, and we understand that he is not
thinking of touring in this situation!! Get well soon Sebastian.

gr-057 Cerullo, Victor - Loneflyer

 I think Victor Cerullo is an extremely underrated composer/artist.
Truly his three albums: Ludus, Loneflyer and Andre Tarkovsky are more
powerful than the music of most artists spanning decades long careers.
I would love to hear more music from him though my searches once in a
while bring back no new results. To me his music is unique but has
elements of Jean Michel Jarre. Loneflyer is an excellent album that
takes you on a journey (as do his other albums) great melodies and
intricate. The title track is one of the most moving and beautiful
pieces ever composed. Thank you Victor. I hope you find the
inspiration to make more music. Your work is incredible.

86300 Schulze, Klaus - Silhouettes

Ah, that good old Klaus Schulze! Some 40 years after his majestic X,
the maestro of EM comes back for another lap. We've been waiting for
this “Silhouettes” since 2 or 3 years, but the fans of the living
legend have rather contented themselves with a few reissues of the
Contemporary Works series, an official bootleg of a sound quality
below the average (Stars are Burning) and a double album highlighting
Schulze's 70th birthday with only two unreleased tracks (Eternal - The
70th Birthday). A little more and it smelled the commercialism of
Tangerine Dream! But back to this “Silhouettes” which is not so much
bad than that, unlike the vast majority of critics and observers of
this musical genre. This last Schulze is very quiet. Quiet, but not
superficial. We are dealing with a 70-year-old man who responds to an
increasingly urgent request from his fans. And that's on this angle
that I analyzed “Silhouettes”. I imagined a Schulze, worn by years a n
d thousands of cigarettes, sitting behind his instruments and his
console trying to offer an album that would go in the same direction
as Shadowlands. It's close enough. But forget the drums, the
adrenaline rush of the sequencer and even less the synth solos.
“Silhouettes” is as beautiful as we can expect from a man of this age,
even with his background and his immense skill. It's a calm album that
is made in a relative peace of mind and which places exactly there
where the maestro of EM must be a few years from a definitive retirement.
The effects of misty hoops which bang together and of waves with rough
contours open the title-track. Layers of absent voices and synthesizer
zests a little odd bring a sibylline depth to an introduction which
eats the first 9 minutes of “Silhouettes”. Shadows of bass and
intensity variances in the play of the layers try to infuse a rhythmic
presence which evaporates rather quickly in this magma of waves and of
stationary shadows. For a bit, and I would feel to be in the land of
In Blue. Except that nothing comes out! Klaus seems to me alone in his
apartments trying to create something, but everything seems to go
around in circles ... Except that even a Schulze that goes round in
circles can become captivating for the nostalgic essence. After a more
intense passage in the crunching of the layers forged in aluminum,
"Silhouettes" takes refuge beneath a bench of celestial songs. Prelude
at a pace just as much static with a slow transition. An ambient
rhythm where the sequencer multiplies its chords which roll like a
nice waterfall and its jets of harmonious water. As the first original
piece since the beautiful Shadowlands, I remain on my appetite. And
it's a little, very much even, the observation after several
listenings of this album. Not that it's not good, but it lacks life.
And it's exactly this image that I have of the Maestro that exempts me
to write a bad criticism for what possibly be the last album of Klaus
Schulz e . A rough statement of course, but this album has been
postponed so many times and the main explanations concerned Klaus'
health issues. Hearsay denied by MIG offices. And each time, the some
few information evoked reasons of health. Some spoke of cancer, others
of severe back pain, while some said that Klaus Schulze was aging
rather badly. And on the management side, it was the most complete
silence. Nada! Just rumors! But let's go back to the music.
"Der Lange Blick Zurück" is a bit like the introductory title with a
long intro blown in an approach where the enigmatic side flirts with a
dreamlike vision. A chorus drawn from the skill of both entities
overflies this lyrical opening where lays down also a thick cloud of
layers weaved into white noises. A rhythmic structure hatches some 8
minutes later. Electronic castanets get infiltrate under this huge
stratum of voices and of synth layers, drawing a spheroidal approach
knotted of good percussive effects and loops formed of sta tic noises.
The bass drum adds a little dance effect. But that dance happens
between our both ears! And like the title track, "Der Lange Blick
Zurück" takes refuge in a final as obscure as its introduction. "Quae
Simplex" is really in pure Schulze mold, without the solos. The rhythm
catches our ears from the start with a sequencer which makes
shimmering its chords and whose harmonic loops take refuge in
infinity. The structure goes up and down with its swarm of sequences
which swirl delicately on the spot and unties fine spasmodic
filaments. A real drum sounds a new rhythmic charge around the 7th
minute, I love here the floating and anesthetic layers which try to
plant an ambiospheric phase, bringing "Quae Simplex" in the
territories of pure Schulze on drums and in the years 76 to 79 A big
piece on this album! "Châteaux Faits De Vent" finishes this last opus
of Klaus Schulze with an introduction as ambient, but warmer, than the
first 2 titles. The sequencer comes early enough, arou n d the 90
seconds, to make kicks which roll gently on fragile ground. The synth
and the bass pads add a touch as melancholy as in the nice Schulze
years while the whole inherits of this metallic tone proper to the
more contemporary years. The transitions are smooth, one speaks of the
percussions here which get in around the 7th minute and a strong
intensity which gradually sticks to its crescendo. Another good track
in “Silhouettes”.
Beautiful! A bit of lengths, but isn't it the signature of the master?
In the end and after several listenings, “Silhouettes”. doesn’t
deserve the severe reception of the critics. We expected more, and
with good reason. But we forget that Klaus Schulze is 70 years old.
And as far as I'm concerned, I prefer an older musician who accepts
this reality that another who does unrealistic stuff for his age, thus
seeking the big critic more focused on the needs of the press than on
the reality. We would like more solos, more rhythms? Me too, but it
doesn't m ean that “Silhouettes” has no depth. It portrays the most
accurately possible the state of mind of a composer on his decline and
who describes it beautifully.
