  1. Matt Howarth / soniccuriosity

    This release from 2004 features 71 minutes of retro electronic music.
    German synthesist Frank Klare has been recording electronic music for many years, as a solo artist and with bands like Synco and Traumklang. Klare is joined on this release by Ron Boots, who lends his EM expertise to three of the albums seven tracks.

    Generous atmospherics fill a cold sky with mounting warmth. Layered sequences descend from the beyond, adding strong definition and appealing melodies to this harmonic flow. A feeling of sedate calm is laced with strident chords that elevate the tranquillity to more dynamic territory, generating a lavish disposition of sonic majesty and meticulous intention. Long intros melt into involved compositions that bristle with verve and passion. This slow-building fashion allows each melody to evolve and flourish in an unhurried manner, resulting in tunes that flaunt earnest creativity with abundance.
    E-perc plays a sneakily integral role in these compositions; often these beats are generated by sounds that possess no impacts, becoming rhythms by their cyclic utilization. Ah, but more conventional rhythms are present too, fleshing out the songs with engaging tempos that superbly propel the melodies to grander heights.
    Twinkling keys spawn nimble chords that dance around additional riffs like moths pursuing a mobile night-light, generating a lavish interplay that weaves with an appealing sway. With each rotation, the patterns reach higher and higher in both majesty and emotional content.

    Deriving deep roots in the works of Tangerine Dream, this release is certain to excite fans of that sound.

    During the seven themes that constitute this release, we can hear traits from styles like Atmospheric Pop, Ambient and Space Music. There also are symphonic traits. Almost all the music is very dynamic, with powerful rhythms, although there also are slow parts. The melodies usually are warm, lively, in an atmosphere typical of a soundtrack for an adventure movie. There also are moments of a greater introspection, perhaps near to meditation, together with other instants of a amazing experimentation.
