The 23rd issue on the “MODULAR SESSIONS” limited run numbered monthly series of CD-only releases offers all the tracks from the sold-out “The iPad Album”, plus three bonus tracks removed from the parallel album “iPaDream” when it was extended and re-issued as “MODULAR SESSIONS 22: Chasing The Dream”.

This rich analog-sounding music perhaps surprisingly was created using the first generation of Apple iPads as Mark Jenkins became the first musician in the world to issue an all-iPad album in 2010, ahead of a partially iPad-based album by Gorillaz.

Strong synth bass sequences accompany busy percussion sounding like the classic CR78 or TR808 drum machines. Analog-sounding filters sweep across parts as Klaus Schulze-style abstract sounds effects float above. Sequences churn through different wave shapes sounding like a Korg Wavestation, and with a background reminiscent of Cluster, Dieter Moebius, Ashra, Robert Schroeder or the minimalism of Philip Glass, the flowing lead lines could most closely be compared to the style of Johannes Schmoelling.

The original tracks crossfade for uninterrupted entertainment, and there’s now a bonus track based on themes by Michael Garrison, and a closing treat for sci-fi fans with a prog rock version of the theme from “Dr. Who?” plus a medley from “Star Wars”.

As usual the CD will only exist in a limited numbered run of 100. All previous issues remain in stock, many likely to sell out very soon.
