Spyra - My little Garden of Sounds 2022 - cd - 86288

Perhaps the most beautiful tribute to Klaus Schulze comes from left field. Of the nimble hands and creativity of Wolfram the Spyra. In a totally unexpected sequel to what many fans of the German synth musician consider his finest work, MY LITTLE GARDEN OF SOUNDS 2022 literally immerses the listener in the intricate structures of a Berlin school refreshed from a new fountain of youth. Composed in the context of an exhibition of interactive sound sculptures, these two works by Spyra are closely related despite being 25 years apart. Unlike My Little Garden of Sounds1997, the sound sculptor from Eschwege uses analog synthesizers and sequencers here, lending richness and warmth to rhythms that progress from atmospheric to heavy, spasmodic textures, where his signature techno juxtaposes the soaring processions of the Berlin School. But the real strength of this album lies in the great solos, which Spyra unfolds with the same tenderness as a gardener who caresses his eye garden, especially in Polyphonic Plants, which keeps spinning in my head, on structures reminiscent of Klaus Schulze , from Body Love to Miditerranean Pads.
 


Scanner - Homeland of Electricity - cd - 12014

The second album for the DiN imprint by British Electronic Musician Scanner sees Rimbaud utilising a different toolset from his first album, An Ascent (DiN63), released in July 2020. Here he focuses in on several Elektron instruments such as the Analog Four, Analog Rhythm and Digitakt. Whilst his debut album was forged live in his studio during the start of the global pandemic here Rimbaud was after a lighter, more optimistic tone.

Rather prophetically Rimbaud states that this album was indebted to the work of the Ukranian film maker Laris Shepitko. Indeed the title of the sixth track “Artemovsk” references the birth place of Shepitko. Furthermore the title of the album, “The Homeland of Electricity”, is taken from her 1968 film which was commissioned by the government to celebrate the October Revolution’s 50th anniversary, but was rejected by the authorities for not being patriotic enough.

At times the music has a sense of blissful calm such as the opener “You and Me” with layers of texture slowly rising & falling to unveil hidden depths to the soundscape. Rimbaud’s love of the human voice as a musical element can be heard in the tracks “Another Aircraft”, “Artemovsk” and “At last it moves into silence” albeit with very different sonic outcomes. Fluctuating between darker elements displayed in such tracks as “Air in the Air” and “Beginning of an Unknown Century” in the end the album reveals a sense of hope which is no more apparent in the joyous simplicity of “Acentria”.

As Rimbaud puts it “this album feels like a sound polaroid of this exact moment in time, capturing our times in atmospheric sound works, where light will be found again, even in the midst of struggle”.

 
 

C-Jay - Backslider II - cdr - 11168

C-Jay now continues in 2022 where the original Bedrock album left off, with “BackSlider II” - placing the Dutchman squarely at the forefront of pioneering electronic music.

Five pieces of immaculately conceived sound design flow through a timeless 40 minutes as “Part 07” opens proceedings with its Tangerine Dream chord progressions and deliciously simple but effective arpeggio. A glistening and glassy motif then adds to the soundscape in a powerful and sumptuous opening movement.

“Part 08” continues the immaculate arpeggiated sound as a delicately skipping percussion lilts across the 8-minute piece, driven forward by a kick from the depths of the Laurentian Abyss. A simple bass groove adds gravitas, while shimmering melodies redolent in rich delays cascade in overlapping patterns to create a sensual and thickly textured and intoxicating sonic arrangement.

A cavernous bass presence emerges from “Part 09” while clicking and popping sounds provide an aural popcorn so buttery smooth it sounds good enough to eat. A spoken vocal sample pans the stereo spectrum with its subtle and instructive message while an arpeggiated backdrop is the perfect vehicle for a powerful analogue motif to sit atop in the latter stages in bright fluid motion.

Continuing the light percussive framework of its predecessor, “Part 10” quickly find its mark with a dense swirling atmosphere and smooth melodic interplay. Building effortlessly, an array of arpeggios coruscate across each other in rivulets over an intricately woven fabric where each thread is inextricably tied to another painting a dynamic sonic picture. A rasping bassline is introduced in the second half to devastating effect in a 9-minute tour de force that showcases C-Jay at his spine-tingling and expansive best.

“Part 11” is a joyous closing piece that revels in captivating melodies and fluttering soundscapes that gradually build into a string-infused masterpiece. With its glorious retro vibe, Vangelis inspired glissando builds and bright chords, C-Jay creates a sonic conduit of hope in troubled times that is the perfect end to the magnum opus that is “BackSlider II”
