Skoulaman - FLUXES IN PHILADELPHIA (cd) gr-283
Excited about this release. Great live performance by Hans.
All who like Berlin School will enjoy this!!

The Gatherings Story. It started a year ago when I met Chuck van Zyl
during our life concerts at E-day 2018 in Oirschot (NL). Chuck asked
me to come over to the States for a performance at The Gatherings.
Chuck is the host of STAR’S END radio (www.starsend.org ) and organizes
the EM-music event “The Gatherings” concert series ( www.thegatherings.org).

This was a challenge, because I could not bring all my gear to the
USA. I was limited to just a small cabin suitcase. I had to use gear
from over there and thanks to Chuck and all the people who loaned me
gear this problem was solved. My son Rik was not able to come over,
but Harrison McKay ( www.tangent-project.com ) was willing to perform
on E-guitar during 2 tracks of my performance. I remember me the long
evening /night before the concert preparing the rig in the studio of
WXPN radio (www.xpn.org ). We encountered a lot of technical problems,
even the hours before my performance, but with the helping hands of
all volunteers they were fixed. This CD contains all the tracks from
my performance at The Gatherings concert. I made some corrections
(shorter intro’s, some low range boosting, some little overall reverb,
and attached some live outside recordings, recorded during my travel
in the States somewhere between Portland and Philadelphia). After The
Gatherings I performed also live at STAR’S END radio, these recordings
will be available at skoulaman.bandcamp.com.

It was magic to play in the St. Mary church, there were moments that I
felt in heaven standing above the clouds, in two ways! I want to make
a huge thanks to everybody who helped me during this performance. The
people who loaned me there gear: Chuck van Zyl, Art Cohen, Jeff
Coulter, Shawn Kralicek, Roycee Martin, Ian Stear, Mark Tajzler, and
all other people who helped me setting up. And thanks to Jeff Towne
and Neil Cippon (“O man, so much gear”) for transport and so much
other things. Thanks to Ashleigh Rose for CD sales. Thanks Ian STAER
( www.staer.bandcamp.com) for your perfect performance at this magical
day. Thank you Harrison McKay for your outstanding E-guitar playing.
Chuck van Zyl, thank you for inviting and believing in what I do and
your very kind support during our stay in Philadelphia. I remember our
long conversations during our city trips and drinking some beers..,
have some food and so on, great! And at last my partner Yolande, se
truly respects the EM-scene and Se felt the same positive vibes during
this concert. Oh.. and not to forget, the audience, the people who
travel to support this kind of events, Thank you.

39037 Schroeder, Robert - Fata morgana

It's like removing the bathtub plug from the cosmos and the sound
waves are sucked up by the drain. By the nothingness, in order to use
another texture in a parallel universe. Binary Streams begins the
latest excursion into the world of Robert Schroeder's sonic wonders.
Pads of all shapes and colors are drifting among abandoned pulsations,
evaporating riffs of a cosmic-Hawaiian guitar and sketches of
unfinished rhythms. These pads embrace more elongated shapes in their
mutations which flirt with synth pads with alien scents. A woodpecker
makes resonate his bangs on a synthetic birch, sculpting these bits of
immoderate rhythms that come and go in the first 4 minutes of Binary
Streams. An electronic guitar begins a phase of blues while percussive
effects, like this cockroach language in the film Captive State,
copulate with Bongo-like percussions. Binary Streams then becomes a
sensual cosmic Blues whose decor is scuffed by slightly garish stre a
ks. And if I told you that FATA MORGANA is the 40th album of Robert
Schroeder who incidentally celebrates his 40 years of career?

And like often since his comeback in 2005, the first 3 tracks of an
album of the musician-synthesist-inventor of Aachen should not
discourage the one who is looking for Berlin School. There is! You
just must know how to hear it, to spot it. Once again, this latest
album by Robert Schroeder requires some listening and a lot of
attention to details before becoming an addict. The 7 structures
present are constantly evolving with phases of evanescent rhythm that
rise under a sheet padded effects of an incredible sound diversity.
The percussions are always very spicy with this striking tone of our
friend Robert who also adds the language of giant cockroaches and
their broken vocal cords. In short, an album still as amazing and as
good as its last; Spaceland! Let's take the beginning of Virtual
Traps! One can't have more Berlin School than this movemen t of the
sequencer which agitates its keys in continuous and imperfect
rotations. Cymbals tickle the scene while the synth layers add romance
and serenity. The percussive language of the giant cockroaches is
always so delicious. After nearly 4 minutes of a movement that
breathes that of a more daring Tangerine Dream, Virtual Traps enters
an ambient phase. A peaceful phase with nostalgic guitar chords and
crumbling solos. The synth pads hang onto the rustling of the cymbals,
adding a scrape tone effect to the serenity of the moment. There is a
nightingale in the synth! His songs make attractive pirouettes in a
mass of layers and pads filled with of anesthetic mist. And some dark
voices add to the surrealism of a cosmic setting so dreamlike and
soothing. Sound beams that spread circular thin lines and stationary
sequences which flicker in these lines became orchestral, Cybercrime
transforms its approach as these ascending rhythms of Robert
Schroeder's analog era. Pads of mist throw p s ychedelic prisms
whereas bass pulsations give tonus to the music. Synth solos fly over
this Neo Berlin School looking for a new sound identity. We recognize
the signature of the German musician with these percussions from
elsewhere which thunder while reshaping the rhythmic surface. Synth
chirps, layers of voices and a new synth dialogue give renewed energy
to the harmonic envelope that follows the course of this rhythm which
goes for a good up-tempo at its last moments.

We have just passed the trickiest part for those who expected Robert
Schroeder's real Berlin School. The next 4 tracks bring us to another
level of astonishment from a musician who always knows how to renew
himself. And how to describe this little masterpiece that is Web
Faces? Accepting the sonic ashes of Cybercrime, a wave rises with the
effects of jerky bursts. The sound wave is built with many sound
effects, including the splendid voice of a Diva. Drums thunder and
crossbow effects pulling rhythmic arro ws that resonate on hardwood
support them, while the synth extends his solos that are duel with
this voice of Maïwenn (The 5th Element). Playing hide-and-seek with
our senses, the rhythm goes out and comes back in a form of
Propellerheads' History Repreating. It must be detected, but the
elements in place are in the form of Decksandrumsandrockandroll. The
percussive effects and the electronic percussions are at the heart of
a structure which always plunges into the ambiospherical unknown
before returning to a more lascivious form in the finale. Finale that
flows into the suave Digital Identities and its Chill Ambient
identity. At first the pace is like on an artificial respirator. A
guitar pinches its notes for a serenade that is fixed and lost in a
line of skinny bass which crawls with good purrings. Dangerous Clicks
also offers this pattern of sequences and their heavy oscillations
that come and go, disappearing in an ambient tumult that makes work my
speakers and my ears. Under s trident synth pads as announcing an
imminent threat, the rhythm emerges after the 4 minutes. The
percussions, the tsitt-tsitt of cymbals and the electronic drum carve
a rhythm where the sequencer manages to put a line there. The synths
forge siren pulsing wave in a boosted electronic rock for at least 4
minutes. The work at the level of the electronic percussions is
amazing here, more than elsewhere in the album. And comes The Berlin
Code! Lines of oscillation run through ambiences frozen by metallic
resonances. Ska-style percussions add a velocity that the oscillating
waves follow without problems, giving an aura of electronic rock which
fools the good old Berlin School style centered on the oscillating
filaments which lead us into a rhythmic carousel as much furious as a
good roller coaster. And it's the end!

How to label the music of FATA MORGANA if only by Schroeder School
music? FONTA MORGANA is a fountain of sound mirages that constantly
reinvent itself on 7 tracks in constant movement. Navigating
comfortably between EDM and Berlin School is more than a pretext to
spread the know-how of Robert Schroeder who imposes his visions with
catchy rhythms, explosive percussions and of synths charmers for those
ears who are eager for daring and creative EM. Ears hungry for new
things too! In the end, it's very good from beginning to end with
moments that justify this admiration I have for Robert Schroeder whose
footprints are everywhere in the world of EM.

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!!
