Michel on the new release!!

I have some good news. I told you before I'm working on a new solo album called PalaeonTology, but there is another album coming very soon. It will be called TimeTravel and it is kind of different. In the past years I released a lot of single tracks on different samplers. Some where for sale like the Dutch Masters and Analogy 3 album by Groove Unlimited. But I also donated some tracks to the German Electronic Music Club Schallwende. They give a sampler CD every year to their members, so these tracks were never really for sale for everyone. There is also new (well actually old) material on the album. Some track that were never released. One track that didn't make my AeroDynamics debut album because I had 68 minutes already. And 2 old tracks that I found on my computer and decided to finish. All track will be completely re-mixed and mastered by my good friend Ron Boots. The artwork was done by my youngest daughter Tamara van Osenbruggen. I'm very proud of that and she will do more for me in the future. I hope you like it. I really do. I will show more of the artwork later. You can read a little bit about the album here already:

16046 - Tangerine Dream - Probe 6-8
http://www.groove.nl/jump2.php?artnum=16046

"Probe 6-8" is the band's preview of their upcoming album in March 2022, the second studio album after the death of founder Edgar Froese. For the first time in decades, Tangerine Dream's tracks can't exactly be recreated for a live performance. An EP that shouldn't be played live as a direct reaction to the many canceled shows over the past few months. Classic studio productions and nightly real-time compositions became the blueprint for slowly developing ambient structures. The band's sequencer-driven sound in the tradition of the early 1970s was combined with the lush crystalline bliss of the 1980s. Thorsten Quaeschning, Hoshiko Yamane and Paul Frick composed and produced with full access to Edgar Froese's Cubase arrangements and the Otari Tape Archive with recordings from 1977 - 2013. This EP also contains two remixes: The Berlin composer and producer Grand River (Aimée Portioli) gave 'Raum' its characteristic sound. 'Contiunuum' was remixed by Berghain resident and Leisure System co-founder Sam Barker, who has been using kick-less ambient techno since his acclaimed debut album 'Utility' from 2019.
 
46246 - Mario Schonwalder & Rothe - Filter-kaffee 105

gr-323 - Awenson - Floating

With “Floating”, French multi-instrumentalist Joël Bernard brings his audience a work of non Berlin School art that isn’t like any of his previous releases. This time around he’s come up with pure spaced-out result (something he had delved into briefly on the 2009-album “Beyond the Galaxies”) fitting in the league of fine electro-ambient explored by Steve Roach, Jonn Serrie, Michael Stearns and alike. Luminous, smooth drifting dreamscapes make up the 12-minute opener “Tropical Sleep”, followed by celestial winds, subtle sequences and calm textures creating a portal into the harmonic, cosmic outdoors on “Tribal Trip”. The lush “Sacred Riteo” with its static bass line sounds a tad flat and too New Age to my ears, but fortunately Awenson heads in the right direction again on the almost 19-minute “Landscape from Outerspace”, a gentle morphing, weightless and more profound soundscape dressed with subtle guitar strings. After the brief interlude “ P erle”, cosmic doors open even more beautiful and mesmerizing on “Flowers in Heaven” and “Love Dream”. All in all, “Floating” is a well-accomplished, soft sparkling and overall calm voyage into cosmic ambiences.

Rating: 4 stars out of 5

42284 -  SEQUENTIA LEGENDA - Celestial

It's this time of the year where Sequentia Legenda delivers a new album. Available as a download and as a manufactured CD, CELESTIAL brings nothing new from Laurent Schieber's universe. The music is beautiful. Always beautiful! She flows quietly with this phenomenon that we can play it in loops without ever getting tired. Like a wizard who hypnotizes us with his music. One of my friends even told me how meditative the music of the French musician was. Long rivers of minimalist music that gets stronger with each minute passing by. The result is another beautiful and solid album that walks on the ashes of Beyond the Stars. Which is not a weakness!

Light tinkling sounds driven by a tide of cosmic woosshh, muffled banging and sound effects simulating the adjustments of a huge spacecraft, are at the origin of this slightly industrial and cosmic introduction of Three Astral Arches. And when the eye of the 3 astral arches seems to be aligne d, an oblong musical shadow, still breathing of this industrial breath, quietly goes up to our ears. CELESTIAL is thus launched! One perceives a breathing beat in this mass of white noises which surrounds this anaesthetic movement. At the same time, the sequencer simmers a line of jumping balls that flutter and flicker on the spot. The movement is spasmodic but stationary. From its first seconds, the intensity curve of Three Astral Arches keeps increasing while flirting with a linear movement after its 5th minute. Continuously, the music attacks our ears with jets of accentuation that come out of the electric rubbing of the cymbals. This is how the rhythm carries its weight over the minimalist movement, after the 10th minute. Powerful and static, this dense ambient layer flirts with Klaus Schulze's old analog dreams by creating an illusion of spasmodic trance with a more contemporary tone. Percussions make its appearance 2 minutes later with mechanical tentacles that give the music another boost of dynamism. An appearance of 4 minutes before a big cloud of drones gradually swallows the charms of Three Astral Arches.

As far as I'm concerned, Symphonic Dawn of the Stars is the jewel of this album. Built on long oscillating circles, the music spins like a big psychedelic spiral effect. The sound is incredibly close to vintage with these loops multiplying in a pattern of sequenced oscillations. With the shadow of one encroaching on the other, there's this sense of being absorbed into a maelstrom that gradually fills with metal-plated wood rattles. The percussions come in, it is the case to say it, after the 4th minute. We travel in time. In the time when Harald Grosskopf was bludgeoning the fantasies of Klaus Schulze. The long circles are getting fill of water set to music and disturbed by a synth that unties imperfect loops. No solos, only effects. In fact, all that's missing are the synth solos to carry me to the skies. The musical density continues to develop with layers of quoted synths that gradually fill the interior of the loops. And so Symphonic Dawn of the Stars strips off its rhythmic assets at the beginning of its 11th minute. And like Beyond from the Beyond, from the album Beyond the Stars, this wonderful track gets absorbed by the notion of dark ambient music. From there, the oscillating movement of the rhythm turns into an undulating movement taken hostage by a synth unfolding its old Farfisa organ tones up until chthonian voices envelop the last right of Beyond the Stars which now lives on the remnants of its premise. Amazing! VOICES 55 (Revisited version) features a longer version of a single, available for free on Sequentia Legenda's Bandcamp site. Composed last November, it is pure Laurent Schieber with a minimalist structure knotted around a lively and spasmodic movement of the sequencer. A movement surrounded by another rhythm line and synth solos that seem too shy, far from our ear capture. It's like a bonus tr a ck that makes buying CELESTIAL even more interesting. Except that CELESTIAL, another very nice album from Sequentia Legenda, doesn't need this track to sell itself.
