28272 Fang, Forrest - Fata Morgana Dream

A dark wind, nibbled by sonic dust, rises and falls, like a waltz in
two steps, to bring the introduction of "The Mouth of the Sea" to our
ears. Beautiful orchestrations float there, as well as effects of
rattlesnakes, bringing the winds towards the mouth of a Japanese harp.
A brief festive speech follows in this Oriental tribal dance tune
which is part of Forrest Fang's sonic perfumes. Multilayers of winds
and drones, supported by dark voices, embrace the Koto fever,
enclosing the ambiances in an ambient tumult that will even exceed the
borders of "Matted Leaves". “The Fata Morgana Dream” is, and this by
far, the darkest and least accessible album that the Sino-American
artist has produced since I discovered his universe in 2011 with the
album Unbound. Which is saying a lot! The music is darker and less
melodic, except for "Lullaby for a Twin Moon", with a rage contained
in the power of sound waves which carve nightmares or mirages. This do
e sn't mean an album to proscribe! Still very close to the territories
of Steve Roach and Robert Rich, who also does the mastering, the music
of Forrest Fang always has this little something special that charms
the hearing. The tones of the Marxolin are quite attractive in this
complex universe which responds quite well to the theme of the album;
either forms of mirages which give the impression that objects float
in the air. Minimalist concept, multilayer of synth drones, lines and
voices. Tibetan percussions, oriental instruments and piano as well as
shimmering melodious themes fill the ambiances of an album where the
first 4 titles are a barrier of atmospheres which can discourage those
who want to embrace the world of Forrest Fang.
"Night Procession" follows with an ambient and noisy rhythmic
structure that transforms into a haunting slow-moving tribal dance,
filled with the tears of a Marxolin Psaltery violin. It makes me think
of the secret rhythms of Roach, Braheny & Burmer in Western Spaces.
There is a fascinating intensity in this structure, both rhythmic and
harmonic, because of an orchestral din as sibylline as the art of
these Chinese shadows that fade here in mirages of all kinds. The
sound character remains thunderous with these innumerable layers of
synth which always carry these dusts of tones, these particles of
sounds either deformed or resonant. "Her Fading Image" is an ambient
tune without essences of rhythm. Only waves and winds which lead an
evasive and melancholic melody carved by a keyboard and its pensive
chords. Delicate, "Lullaby for a Twin Moon" is also very musical.
Deprived of darkness coming from the charge of the breezes which have
buried the first 4 tracks of “The Fata Morgana Dream”, its melody
seems to be the ancestor of "Night Procession". Piano notes that break
like a minimalist storm, "Remembrance Point" mixes wonderfully
sweetness and anger on a melody played with such anger that it sculpts
a strangely captivating pace . It sounds like Philip Glass! This is
another minimalist movement projected by gongs that opens the slow
march of "Dream of the Last Fisherman". More ambient and more oriental
in nature, especially with the addition of a kind of Koto, the music
is overwhelmed by a huge layer of voices and fog effects which go
astray in some nice orchestrations. A title very sweet and less
musical than "To the End and Back" which ends masterfully an album
that is worth to tame. And it will come...

 gr-271 Fritsch, Eloy - Journey to the Future

A bass line relieves itself by coming out of arpeggios coated with a
symphonic sound. Between the music of Synergy and Vangelis, A Place
Beyond the Clouds surprises with its austere philharmonic tone. Big
drums' rollings, splashing of drums, synth pads and the very Vangelis
allegorical twisting effects place us between the Greek musician's
quirky works and his sonic essays that have impressed the fans of his
abstract musical art. We have to be very patient with this first work
of Eloy Fritsch out of his territories of progressive music. I almost
gave up on this JOURNEY To The FUTURE after reaching Mermaids Island.
I said to myself; It's not for me! But since it comes from Groove and
I have tremendous respect for Ron Boots, I repeated to myself; there
must be something in this album. Well yes ... and no! Some titles are
very catchy and easy to access. But there are also completely crazy
titles that will require a very open mind. As for me, I' m glad I persisted.
So, A Place Beyond the Clouds is a good title with powerful
arrangements and even with emotional spikes that are woven to give us
chills of tenderness. If you liked Audion, from Synergy, and Charriots
of Fire, from Vangelis, you'll love A Place Beyond the Clouds as well
as the vast majority of JOURNEY To The FUTURE. Eternal is even more
poignant. The music begins with a slow staccato, genre movie of
biblical years. Floating synth pads filled with balls of harmonies
surround it. They also sink these very slushy orchestrations that add
to the cinematic vision of the title reminiscent of the music of the
movie Alexander, composed and arranged by Vangelis. Gregorian
choruses, a sample of a seraphic soprano, riffs of a celestial harp
draining her strings, and Babylonian percussions complete an already
overloaded setting. A small flaw that will get bigger and bigger as we
go forward in JOURNEY To The FUTURE and will reach a point of no
return with the immensely craz y Electric Brain. If you like these
metal percussions whose clashes create echoes of coldness, like in
Antartica, Mermaids Island is full of those. Even after 5 plays of
this album, I always have difficulty to seize this structure which
embraces too many tangents. I have this vague impression of hearing a
bunch of old clichés heard everywhere. Spacelab comforts us with
eagerness! It's a wonderful title that starts with wooshh and NASA's
Spacelab communications samplings. A slow carousel twirls its
arpeggios that feel pressed by a line of bass pulsations in the
background. It's melodious, it's a some kind of deja-entendu, but
there is an effect of intensity and velocity in this title ... Hmmmm!
It's when the second communication between the NASA engineers is over
that Spacelab bursts with a spiral of the most harmonious that comes
to tighten our heartbeat slightly. But that's not all! A few seconds
later, the structure changes tone and plunges into a hyper-gripping
and hyper-poignan t dimension. I have heard this title a dozen times
without getting tired of it. Direction iPod, category best title in 2019!
Who Want to be a Machine? starts with a good arpeggios' drop a la
Tomita. A somewhat military rhythmic structure seizes this ballet to
direct it towards a spasmodic dance-music structure. A structure that
sways between ambient and living EDM. Vocoder effects take us back to
the 80's and the rhythm, surrounded by ghostly ululations, drifts to a
genre like Laura Branigan (Gloria) and Gary Numan. There are many
species in such a short time. And I guess it would be a hit with a
nice video too. It's very catchy and full of sound effects well laid
here and there. Good synth-pop with a more creative vision. Blue
Diamonds on Water is a melody in the genre of Mermaids Island. I told
you earlier that the more we would advance in JOURNEY To The FUTURE
and the more things start to get tough. Dance of the Spheres begins
this segment where disjointed structures abound in different musical
envelopes. Spheres dance in tireless circles and communicate with each
other with a well-structured electronic language. Here we have a
structure in continuous migration with a hint of Rock and Jazz in an
environment that flirts with Soft Machine and Vangelis, in Spiral, and
even with Tangerine Dream for the color of the reverberant pads.
Circles of Time is another title in a ballad style with slamming
percussions. The pace is heavy with some very philharmonic synth
layers. The game of percussions solidifies this structure which ends
its race in a sphere of sonic ambiences and which drift towards this
very beautiful cosmic lullaby that is NUWA. The influences of
Vangelis, especially China, shine throughout this title which is a
remix of Circles of Time. The sequencer lazily waves its line of
rhythm in the opening of Hypnosis. That's enough for Eloy Fritsch to
plan his solos, which abound of a nice smell of electronic Free Jazz.
Better structured than Dance of the Spheres, Hypnosis remains the best
of the crazy titles of JOURNEY To The FUTURE. Electric Brain? A hyper
complex title with a vision of abstract music where you have to stick
all the scattered chords to structure something. I leave you that! You
have to persevere, or jump it on your CD player, to hear Forrest
Guardian. This long title concludes Eloy Fritsch's first album of pure
EM with a moving structure that is closer to a symphonic electronic
rock with shades of Jean-Michel Jarre and especially Vangelis who is
the main essence of a very good business card from Eloy Fritsch, who
is an excellent architect and composer, in the world of EM. In the
end, I did well to insist since in reality 60 minutes of good music
out of 69 is not so bad.
