-------------------------------------------------
And the new Moonbooter is due next week during our Concerrt in Munster.
Moonbooter - Both Sides of the Moon (2-cdr)

 First of all: "Both Sides of the Moon" is my first double album with
over 120 minutes, 100% new music. So no remixes and no live recordings.
"Both Sides of the Moon" is a tribute to the 50th anniversary of the
Apollo 11 moon landing on 21 July 1969. This event was the main theme
for the album. I had expected the public to devote more resonance and
attention to this special day. In my opinion this was not the case at
least here in Germany. Thus I could dedicate myself completely to this
concept in good conscience.
As the title of the album suggests, it's about the two musical souls
in me that make up my music: Classical electronics and modern club
music. Sometimes dark, sometimes melancholic, sometimes playful,
sometimes serious. Kitsch is also allowed. But please with style.
On "Both Sides of the Moon" I had an absolutely free hand. So there
was no musical concept to limit me musically, only one theme. That is
also a concept. Nothing has to fit together under all circumstances.
Just make the music that's in you.
At the end there were 30 finished songs in front of me and as always I
had to decide which of them to put on the final album. Yes, they still
exist, the 70 minute limit for a CD. After a few minutes it was clear:
A single CD was not enough this time. There were only a handful of
songs I wanted to do without. And since this music had been produced
for this album, it should also appear on this album. So I decided for
a double album. I didn't make any compromises in terms of sound,
composition, mastering or arrangement. It is important for me to
emphasize this. Because there are no obvious gap fillers for my ears.
This musical freedom has done me personally very good. It was also a
necessary evil in a way. Summer 2019 was no good for me. I had to
struggle with health problems. These have now been overcome.
Nevertheless I could not make real music over 5 months, but only
collect ideas. During this time I lacked the necessary concentration
and strength to limit myself to just one theme. When I recovered in
September, I began to collect all these ideas, I was surprised myself,
what all had come together. The inspiration was more than enough and
within 6 weeks I could finish producing all the songs on "Both Sides
of the Moon". I really enjoyed this time and had a lot of fun in the
studio. Many emotions about the summer accompanied me. After
everything was produced I thought about a sequence. I varied between
different combinations, a fast and a slow album. So a dark and bright
side of the moon. In the end I decided to compile the songs
intuitively and create a smooth transition where it works. As a
listener you are of course free to compile your own tracklist.


The idea for the title "Both Sides oft he Moon" can only be heard in
recent weeks. Normally a title is fixed in advance. This time it was
different, and I remembered my album "Devided" (which was released 14
years ago). Back then it was the same. Looking back, I'm glad I never
tried to be an imitation of anything. I've always done my musical
thing, developing myself further and never losing sight of the right
and left. Of course not the one to the front and sometimes also back.

From time to time I listen to my own music. That's a fantastic time
travel through my own life. Actually looking like photos, only
different. On the other hand, I also check every now and then whether
I have used ideas again and if so, whether they are in a different
context. Personally I didn't notice anything serious in this point,
but fans will certainly judge my music differently ;o)
"Both Sides of the Moon" has become a very diversified album. The
sound is more open and maybe a bit more dynamic. A bit wider. Less
complicated. Less full. More space for every single sound. More
breaks. Those were my goals, too. Most of the sounds are handmade. So
no presets from libraries, but programmed with attention to detail.
Only with the obvious natural instruments like pianos and choirs I
used samples off the rack. Where we are at another point: Yes, the
piano can be heard again and again on "Both Sides of the Moon". That
was also planned that way. I love the piano and I think that my music
has been a bit too short in the last years. This time I have renounced
guitars of any kind.

To the production itself: Mainly hardware synthesizers were used. A
list can be found below. I recorded almost all musical ideas directly.
And because I had always recorded only short moments, it was no longer
possible to arrange or transpose/supplement. I also find this
experience as a musician refreshing and felt transported back to the
late 80s when multi-track recorders were used. Many elements are the
way I recorded them live, which makes the songs in parts more
authentic and alive. Not everything is 100% perfect. So please forgive
me for a few timing fluctuations. And I just don't feel that perfect
as really perfect. This experience will also accompany my music more
strongly in the future.

I wish you a lot of fun and a good time with my music.
You and yours - Bernd "moonbooter" Scholl

(DUTCH)
 TANGERINE DREAM – IN SEARCH OF HADES

Alle reguliere CD's zoals Phaedra, Rubycon en Richochet hadden ze weg
kunnen laten uit deze box, want daar is niks bijzonders mee gedaan
(nou vooruit: van Ricochet en van één Phaedra-nummer is een Steven
Wilson remix gemaakt). Daarbij zijn deze platen al drie keer eerder
uitgebracht (o.a. als 'Defintive Editions' en als onderdeel van de
Virgin CD-verzamelbox 'The Virgin Years 1974-1978’)

Sommige CD's duren kort, er is er een bij van maar 45 minuten.
De drie nummers van de '70-'80' LP-box (1980) hadden gemakkelijk op 1
CD aangevuld kunnen worden, ruimte genoeg. Waarom Chimes and Chains op
een aparte CD?

Het Royal Albert Hall concert uit 1975 is een schitterend concert,
maar was al uitgebracht in de officiële ‘Bootleg Box Vol 1’, maar
goed, nu in een iets betere kwaliteit en iets langer, daar valt dus
wat voor te zeggen.

Ik heb geen Blue Ray speler, dat betekent dat de laatste twee schijven
(waaronder videomateriaal) voor mij afvallen. (Waarom opeens Blue Ray
voor de video? - absurd).
Hoogtepunten zijn de live concerten uit 1974 en natuurlijk de niet
eerder uitgebrachte Oedipus Tyrannus opname. Je kan nu goed horen dat
Tangerine Dream voor het stuk Desert Dream van de live-CD Encore
(1977) een stuk van Oedipus heeft gebruikt, wat dus niet live in
Amerika gespeeld is.

Ook interessant is de CD met de opname van het Coventry Cathedral
concert in 1975. Eindelijk kunnen we horen wat daar nu ECHT gespeeld
is. De DVD die al sinds jaren in omloop is bevat immers fake-muziek,
d.w.z. muziek van de studioplaten Rubycon en Ricochet, maar niet de
muziek die daar daadwerkelijk live is gespeeld, in die Cathedral. Tot
slot zijn interessant de opnames van de studio-oefensessies rond de
periode van Phaedra (1974). Je hoort de band bezig in de studio, wat
toch heel anders is dan live tijdens een concert.

Eindconclusie:
Veel interessants en veel wat overbodig is (het overbodige tref je
vooral in de tweede klapper met de 10 geluidsdragers).
De helft van de CD's (70 min. vol gespeeld), de video-content (óók) op
DVD, en de helft van de prijs en je zou een prima box hebben gehad.
Het bijgevoegde boek kan ongewijzigd blijven, want dat is prima, met
mooie onthullingen.

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 AirSculpture 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 riffs. These two instrumen t
s 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 c onsisted 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 second
half. The synth p a ds 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!

SHIPPING:
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!!
