September Dawn” a studio track that serves as a dreamy opening for the next track. The melody is lilting
Sylvain Lupari / Guts Of Darkness –
I always had being bond for David Wright music. Whether in solo, either with Code Indigo and Callisto or with Ian Boddy and Robert Fox, David Wright always touched my sensitive point which livens up my emotions. His music reflects the particular character of the emotional paradoxes which is hidden inside each human being; either she is serenely melodious or strangely disconcerting. But no matter facets, she is mostly moving. According to the comprehension that we got after reading the 20 pages booklet that comes along with the cd, Sines of Live Vo. I is David Wrights last opus. A gift to his fans that includes compositions played live and which have new arrangements andor orientations, along with 3 new tracks. A synopsis of his last years in the course of live performances.
A wind of cosmic dust, where crystal rubs to spatial sediments, opens the intro of September Dawn, one of Sines of Live Vo. I three novelties. Of austere to melodious, the galactic wind is transformed into a warm earth ballad where it whistles among light percussions and a fluty synth. Melodious and soft September Dawn is astride cosmic plains of a light lascivious tempo.
A silky prelude to the colossal Cassini, from Continuum album. Truncated of some minutes, Cassini preserves its entire sequential ardor with its tribal percussions, its Gregorian chants, its wrapping mellotron as well as its synth with breaths and burning solos, porter of a magnificent synthesized melody which spawns among this attractive sound constellation while throwing the bases for a warm tribal music as well as a monasterial music.
The 2nd part is simply a blast for emotions. And emotion is the keyword of David Wright‘s works and Walking with Ghosts is doubtless the most significant album in his 20 albums career.
The title track takes a completely different turn with Ian Boddy‘s addition in synths and Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock in Memotron. A superb title that has touched a lot of fans over the years, and if the intro does not dupe your soul to highlight some sighs of nostalgia well your soul has gone to another world.
Idem for the splendid and hyper melodious Beyond Paradise of the same album, which dresses a quite new shape with Klaus Hoffmann-Hook to the electronic sitar which accompanies languishingly the spectral synth of Wright. Simply delicious!
Just an Illusion, from his latest studio album Dreams and Distant Moonlight, is played with a very rock intensity because of Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock guitar performance. We close our eyes and we would believe to hear Mind Over Matter‘s rebirth. Absolutely divine! Only Wright tinny synth brings us back in its spheres with his personal touch as melodious as ingenious.
A magnificent version that has some Hindus fragrance and which is melting subtly into the introductory hazes of Sines of Live. This delicate eponym title moves gently on a warm bass structure which modulates a supple pace, such a walk of a lonesome spatial cowboy who wanders in the shade of a dreamy chords piano. Slowly, Sines of Live becomes more harmonious with a mellotron synth that frees its orchestral arrangements in the gloom of this piano full of melancholy. A track imprints by this magnetic sweetness of Wright and which ends in the State of Bliss‘s introductory gloominess, again from Dreams and Distant Moonlight, where Wright/Hoffmann-Hoock duet transposes aptly the paradoxes, as rhythmic as emotional of this magnificent title.
Sines of Live Vo. I ends with its 2 last new tracks. Written during Code Indigo Chill session, 3 am is a dark and melancholic title where the grayness transposes on a piano to melancholic keys which soak into the hazes of a foggy synth and a guitar with reverberating loops effect. A short title which is use as springboard to All Good Things‘s livened up and frenzy rhythms. A title which depicts David Wrights fickleness as rhythmic as melodic and which draws solid arrangements on a heavy structure that roams between the rhythmic corridors of Cassini and the progressive rides of Code Indigo.
Sines of Live Vo. I is a brilliant musical collection that David Wright is offering to his fans. Some classic tracks of its latest years that are remodeled by Ian Boddy and Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock presences and which he presents with the whole emotionalism that characterized his 20 years career. It is truly sad that it has to ends here
