gr-268 Tonal Assembly - Lost And Found In Imaginary Landscapes

Just the name puts oil in my ears! Tonal Assembly is a project of Dr.
Taede A. Smedes, a philosopher of the religion, a theologian and an
independent writer who lives in his native country, the Netherlands.
For some years he has been interested in EM. This led him to musical
essays that were presented on various platforms in Holland and to make
the acquaintances of François ten Have, Eric van der Heijden and
finally Ron Boots who quickly sniffed the talent of Taede A. Smedes.
Tonal Assembly describes his music as being inspired by the usual
artists who paved the way for the different spheres of EM, namely
Jean-Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, Kraftwerk and the 80's
Synth-Pop wave. These ingredients are indeed well present in LOST And
FOUND In IMAGINARY LANDSCAPES and make it a very attractive album to
explore where the scents of the analog years of EM, I think among
other things Space Art and AGE, make its discovery even more interes t
ing. As much I must write it from the outset; I spent a very good 60
minutes, and more than once, to be seduced by this new album from this
new artist that is Tonal Assembly. And just the name, puts oil in my ears!...
An oblong synth wave traces circular forms with a reverb tilt in the
tone. She furrows the first seconds of Rising and releases also a
little thread of astral voice that gradually fades the resonance of
its mother sound. A shadow casts a more intimidating tone and a
sequencer bounces its keys in a fragile setting that has bit by bit
becomes apocalyptic. The dance of the keys, and their shimmering
sound, continues with the arrival of fresh force; sequences with bead
tones bouncing on glass. But this spastic dance remains immured by
deafening layers and veils to finally become the first 6 minutes of
LOST And FOUND In IMAGINARY LANDSCAPES. The introduction of On the
Shores of the Cosmic Horizon is sewn also of the same thread of
atmospheres. Only, the tone is differen t. Like that of the sequencer
which releases a nice series of sequences and which carries out a long
ascending harmonic design. The movement is flexible and is built
around a minimalist vision of cosmic rhythm that is at the image of
the title. Beneath patterns of sequences as radiant as in the Software
universe, the 85-90 years, the synths infuse harmonies fragrant of
fluted essences that sometimes dance with the rhythm or fly away to
conquer the stars. Sober and very good, like in the analog years.
Above the Clouds is my first crush! Initiated by a slam coming from
nowhere, the rhythm goes into the Teutonic phase with bass pulsations
and sequencing patterns rolling like skeletons of snakes running down
the slopes with a restraint so as not to break the rest of their
bones. This structure will become the bed of an avalanche of
percussive elements as much corrosive as seductive throughout Above
the Clouds. It's the piano and its melody dreaming over this sparkling
nest of sound eff e cts and under nice orchestrations that make all
the charm of Above the Clouds. Delicious for my ears! Lighter, and
more romantic, Beyond Words survives very well to the dimension of
Above the Clouds. Its introduction is a mass of ether from which
emerges the choreography of the sequencer and its ballet for
sequences. Here again, the perfumes of French cosmic rock and its
musical poetry shine on this dance for swans sculpted on sequencer.
The arpeggios are rhythmic and harmonic and tinkle in a glass universe
with a melancholy and enchanting touch.
The sound effects which open Blizzard give it a cinematographic vision
with samplings of steps walking on hard snow. There are breezes, but
there is also a sweet melody woven on a keyboard with beaded
arpeggios. The structure of the sequencer dances in symbiosis with
this spheroidal melody that will let the first synth solos fly on this
album and whose stagnant dance is reminiscent of some good Software
digital music. Even that some cho rds ... A nest of sequences always
teeming with a disordered rhythmic life is under the contracted
harmonies of Runners High which gets away with a good piano lost in
what seems to be about to explode very early. A marathoner comes to
praise about running and the music becomes a kind of synth-pop which
even flirts with the first ideas of Bernd (Moonbooter) Scholl. The
Voyage Begins follows this electro-pop tangent that is more in the
cosmic mold of Jean-Michel Jarre. It's very well done, and the play of
percussion enhances the dance aspect of the title. Longest title of
LOST And FOUND In IMAGINARY LANDSCAPES, Fragility is also its jewel,
for a bit that we are romantic and emotive. Its introduction is muddle
with its half-hatched synth larvae that flutter without panache in a
panorama where water flows. The synth becomes more austere, casting
heavy shadows that resonate well after the last breath. And it's here
that orchestrations and murmurs of astral nymphs will raise the
delicate voice of Leonie Smedes. A piano reflects aloud, joining its
pensive notes with these murmurs. Gently, the sound fauna gradually
builds a nice melody that straddles a galloping rhythm without
eagerness. Sound petals fly here and there, putting more emphasis on
the sensual effect of this voice that will go and will come throughout
this serenade carried by a piano and by the bucolic charms of a synth.
The movement becomes a spheroidal rhythm and courts admirably this
melodious approach whose tenderness is added to all this wave of charm
that is this first album of Tonal Assembly on Groove.
Not complicated, or almost not, and rather very harmonious in a sound
universe that we master quite well, LOST And FOUND In IMAGINARY
LANDSCAPES is a very nice album for those who search melodies and
these rhythms well sculpted by a sequencer in mode charm. There are
beautiful jewels in this album whose versatility in the genres and
accessibility remain its greatest strengths. Hat to you boys! Sylvain

87332 V/A - E-Scape 2019

David Wright and the team of his label AD Music remain very involved
in the evolution of EM on the side of England. They are doing a huge
job setting up an EM festival since 2015. A festival called E-Scape.
And as is the custom, a CD is made for the event and contains original
music, or a concert performance, signed by the artists invited to this
festival. And I can confirm that each of these compilations made since
2015 at least hide a title that is worth the cost of the CD. And I
would say it's the same this year with E-SCAPE 2019. Although the
tangent of this last festival seems to privilege a more experimental
approach of the invited artists, there is always a title we have the
crush for and a new name to remember which makes the purchase of
E-SCAPE 2019 very interesting.

Well, we know the superb ReConnected from David Wright. The live
performance here is spotless. This is a very nice title for those who
don't know it yet. This i s Glenn Main's 3rd participation at this
festival. For this occasion, he has composed a lively title with a
good rhythm and a very Jarre synth melody in Secret Landing. We have
no surprise here, except that the music is good and kind of ear
catching. Melodious and rhythmic, these two titles are sure values in
this compilation. Axxent Opaque is the first revelation of this album.
This English trio, consisted of Colin Jordan, Gary Wright and Chris
Medway, works a little bit like AirSculptureAirSculptureAirSculpture
as they seem of being more comfortable on stage than in studio. They
already have an album out, Wave-Forms, and the excerpts I've heard
seem promising. Live Sessions 29.3.19 is a rather interesting
improvised track. The rhythm is woven by a series of oscillations that
form a lively and spasmodic line on which metallic percussive effects
are grafted. These effects, and many others, peck or add to this long
reel of spasmodic rhythm adorned of synth layers and heavy guitar ri f
fs. These two instruments leave moaning solos. The rhythm is
convulsive with sound effects so creative that I thought I heard a
chorus of amphibian roar without a second of respite. Interesting
project! Escaping Infinity is a title from Infinity Curve, a duo of
veteran English musicians, Peter Challoner and Jez Creek. These two
synthesists are specialized in the field of dark ambient EM that is
knotted around effects of reverberations coming from a mass of drones
and their sound repercussions. The two musicians, who are friends too,
tune their equipment and once the break-in is over, balance at us a
very nice Berlin School movement with a line of rhythm and its
hesitant keys running and jumping clumsily. The structured slightly
attenuates its sound velocity to give space to multiple strata and
sound effects. Do you like AirSculpture or RMI? Infinity Curve's
Escaping Infinity is for you!

There is a strange mood behind Looks Like Rain, Dear which is a very
experimental title concocted by E3, a duo consisted of two other
veterans of the English EM scene; Paul Ward and Stephan Whitland. The
duo wears out their 16 minutes and more with different collages that
give a pastoral hue, as an abyssal color to a long movement animated
by felted explosions (implosions). A choir and vocal effects à la
Jean-Michel Jarre's Zoolook act as sails where terror can easily be
mixed with schizophrenia. I didn't like! Who is Nik Owen Jones? This
is the real find of E-SCAPE 2019! His title, Rejuvenation, is a very
good Berlin School. Intro dark with chthonian fragrances from a
mellotron and its various sources of dark waves and mists. The
departure makes me think a little about the structure of Silver Scale
from Tangerine Dream, with a gradation in the movement of the rhythmic
train that is powered by jolts of the sequencer. The pulsations are
muffled and resonate with heaviness, giving more vitality to this line
of rhythm that will become much more agile and incisive in the s econd
half. The synth pads are generous and wrap with an ethereal perfume
movement that stops to let a guitar breathe and starts again with more
energy and especially with more synth solos. An excellent surprise!
Like the very explosive Second Star from Wavestar II. John Dyson, Paul
Ward and Stephan Whitland break the shack with an explosive Berlin
School that is unique to Wavestar II with synth and a mellotron solos
that are very personal to the mythical English trio who likes to
exploit the sound of Tangerine Dream's Jive years. The Blue Years!
Always Tomorrow ends this other solid compilation from AD Music with a
beautiful ballad in the New Age genre that can be found on the very
good David Wright album; Stranger Days. Chills guaranteed with these
beautiful arrangements and the sweet voice of Carys that would make a
dandelion cry!

Due to the fact that we use a special shipping service that provides
the shipping of parcels etc we don't have to adjust the shipping prices
at this moment. One of the reasons is that because of you our costumers
we can keep these prices so low. With over 1500 parcels shipped last year
we can stay in the lowest shipping prices!
I am glad we are one of the few suppliers of EM that did not have to raise
their shipping prices. So for the 4rth year in a row they stay the same!!
