36168 The Tower Tree - Transposing

Album review by Joost Egelie
Before me lies "Transposing", the first album of the new group The
Tower Tree '. A classic jewel case, with cover design by Alain Kinet,
and mastered
by Dries De Vreeze. The Tower Tree presented this album live at the B
– Wave festival in a
great show of light music and video. The Tower Tree are Didier
Dewachtere aka BySenses and Johan De Paepe aka Owan.
The videos by Alain Kinet are not just supportive to the music, they
were part of the adventure through time and imagination painted upon
the canvas of the listener/ Experiencer.

The Tower Tree
A track by track tear – down:

The Tree ………………………………………… 9:40
What instantly grabbed me as the listener, is the strange voices in
the intro. They tell of a tale I could not understand – yet. But they
lead me by the hand into the undiscovered world under The Tree.
Immediately when I stepped into that realm , some very nice sequences
and an upbeat exotic drum surprised me. There is a certain dance in
the flow of the composition, it swirls – it leaves you and it comes
back to you.
Never boring, this piece will certainly unveil new mysteries each time heard.
A word that you will keep seeing me using: ' Organic'. This is living music.

Transposing Mind …………….…………..…18.47
After the wild adventure beyond The Tree, I find myself in calmer
waters in Transposing Mind. Again, a fabulous intro that tickle the
imagination. This piece is also the longest track of the album. A dark
mixture of whispers and choirs lure you to darker surroundings you
wouldn't dare to enter on your own: the mind…
Slowly but steadily build towards an immense and vast wall of sound. A
swampy rhytm keeps you up to pace with the melodies. This piece is in
conversation with the listener; it holds a tale, but your mind is the narrator.
Let me try to capture the feeling this track bestows: Beige and sa
ffron colours under a burning sun, smell of exotic spices like
cinnamon and cardamom, pal trees far away.
But be aware – there is a turning point. Suddenly it all doesn't seem
so romantic anymore. Though the melody stays the same, the music gets
spikes, there is a shadow interwoven.
All an all, this track doesn't sound artificial – it doesn't even feel
electronic. It feels Organic, breathing, it left me with questions:
'Where am I..? Who am I..?? Am I ..??

The Tower ………….…………….………….….. 13:48
Puzzled back into perspective by the next track, the more lucid
sequences weave another pattern. There is a careful use of echo here –
subtile, but very unique. The thythm is notoriously inviting.
It hints threats, and indeed – The Tower Tree is again building
something colossal here. There is no escape, you're trapped by rock
hard sequences and (I'm running out of superlatives) humongous pads !
And yet when I think this is just a transition, they turn this huge
sound wal l into a lasting track. And yes !! it tastes like more.
Just when I think the track can't get any more ruthless, it pulls
another trick, by retreating and leaving me standing there. As luck
would have it I find comfort in the smoothing ambient strings that
weave the outro.

One day we will walk together ………………8:44
I think this track could have been born in a cathedral. There is choir
– like pads, and the very melodious chords have a certain mystical
glow over them.
It is a beautiful composition in the true meaning of that word (Latin:
con = together; ponere = to place)
Very unlike the other tracks, but in every aspect at least equally great.
The track can also be found on Owann's album 'Particles'

Destination Unknown ………………………. 12:15
This track is the very first collaboration between BySenses and Owann
under the name "The Tower Tree" and ended up the BySenses album
'Frigments Fragments' ( 2014 ) because at that time there were no
plans for making a Tower tree album
Indeed, this is an adaptation for live performance which resulted in a
slightly shorter but overall thicker, greater, more evolved musical experience.
The Tower Tree revisited this music in their typical way. The made it
even more organic (yes, there is that word again!) than it already was.
The intro is very orchestral and with a firm voice demands to be a
soundtrack (which, thanks to Alain Kinet, it eventually became).
A very, very s trong sequence enters. Razor strings that could cut
steel fill up into a harmonic building up to a moment where modulation starts.
All of a sudden the music chills down, masked in little schoolgirl –
like behavior. When you least expect it – it returns, but not in full
force like what
I braced for. There are various aspects in this track, and they come
and they go –
but they all typically describe the feeling of the title "where are we
going?".. Destination Unknown. It is the task of the listener to find
that out – and upon each listen, more possible destinations become visible.

By far, I cannot but conclude that this debut album of The Tower Tree
is an unfathomable deep and rich story of a complete newly created world.
Opening the jewel case is like opening a gem box; in it lie 5 shiny
colourful gems each with their own history, present and future. And
what's more: they're breathing, pulsating with a heart- beat, and
yearning to tell their stories.
I sincerely hope to hear more of this soon, but I can imagine that
Johan and Didier have put the threshold way up high now. It will be
hard to top that masterpiece.

34376 Roach, Steve - Soul Tones

Contemplatively titled "Soul Tones" album was released by Steve Roach
during December 2012 on Timeroom Editions as the first part of a three
CD series. "Soul Tones" are comprised of two long form compositions,
the title track "Soul Tones", getting close to 46-minute mark and
"Resolved", clocking just over 28 minutes. The first piece unfolds
absolutely peaceful, with slowly expanding, flowing and ebbing synth
washes. These utterly sublime, captivating and extensive drones
smoothly glide with all their grace and harmony through the majestic
and grandiose cumulus clouds at sunset. As much ethereally magnificent
as the cover photograph by Kati Astraeir, which stunningly portrays
these eternally spellbinding and hypnagogic atmozones. Yes, "Soul
Tones" will gently and unobtrusively surround you during your deeply
relaxing activities or as a low-volume playback during your sleep
time. But also more active listening session with your headphones take
s you to essentially sedative journey. In any case, monstrous calmness
of "Soul Tones" is an ultimate sonic elixir to soothe your body and
mind!!! "Resolved" slowly dives into more mysterious and gradually
expanding realms. Could be slightly monochromatic or static when
listening without deeper dedication, but as soon you unlock the gates,
you enter this multi-layered structure of drone walls, circles and
traverses, which take you into profoundly absorbing opaque nocturnal
panoramas with increasing potency. During the 18th minute these sonic
canvas cascade into slightly more relieving and enchanting movements,
yet enough dramatic and expressive with balmy wide-screen transitions,
before quietly fading away and reaching tranquil silence. "Resolved"
is every bit as immersing as the title composition, "Soul Tones". Once
again, connect yourself deeply to the genius' soulful oasis and let
his audible insignia to reveal all its magic on you. These "Soul
Tones" are massively embracing and s howcase Steve Roach at the peak
of his deepest sonic meditations!!! From time to time I run across
comments about the master losing some of his glare. No way for my
ears, because the year 2012 has brought to us masterpieces such as
"Back To Life", "Tales From The Ultra Tribe" (with Byron Metcalf) or
"Low Volume Music" (with Dirk Serries), first two for sure can be
celebrated as true groundbreakers and "Soul Tones" undoubtedly
deserves its stellar place among the most delightful, tranquil and
enigmatic works ever coming out of The Timeroom cave. Hats off to
Steve Roach!!! The newest album "Future Flows" will be released in one
month, just before the huge Ambicon 2013 festival (May 3-5, San
Rafael, California). And I am quite sure "Future Flows" will blow us
away again!!!
