8 reviews for Nattefrost – Underneath the nightsky

  1. LouLou / Prog-rsiste

    Gographiquement, le Danemark nest pas loin de lAllemagne. Cette promiscuit trouve un accomplissement dans la musique de NATTEFROST, le projet du synthtiste Bjrn Jeppesen. La filiation avec les matres allemands est indniable et sa sympathie pour la patrie de Goethe est encore plus flagrante avec le rcitatif en allemand par lactrice Ute Stemmann qui introduit Translogical movements, la plage douverture, et la collaboration de Robert Schroeder sur Winterland. Certains morceaux pourraient avoir t composs par Froese et consorts au lendemain dExit, dautres, par leurs lignes de percussions mtalliques, ne dplairaient pas un Eric Serra.

    Les compositions sont interprtes avec justesse par Jeppesen, qui dispose dune palette sonore trs riche privilgiant les percussions sourdes et les sons aciduls. Il a aussi eu la bonne ide de demander la collaboration de Phil Molto (un proche de Schroeder) pour quelques interventions bien penses la guitare. Lalbum est plus audacieux que son prcdent opus (chroniqu dans le PR 46) et devrait plaire tout amateur de-music qui se respecte.

    Nattefrost takes a more ambient approach to sequencer music, though still very upbeat and full of energy.

  3. Roberto Vales / Ultima Fronteira

    Grabado entre Enero del 2006 y Enero del 2007 en su estudio en Copenhague, este es el nuevo trabajo del proyecto de Bjorn Jeppesen, adems cuenta con la colaboracin en el tema Winterland” de Robert Schroeder-Trebor. El disco comienza con la suave y melodiosa voz de Ute Stemman en el tema “Translogical Movements” para trasladarnos a partir de ese momento en un viaje espacial por los sueos gracias a los hermosos ritmos que Bjorn Jeppesen es capaz de crear.

    Though Nattefrost the pseudonym of Bjorn Jeppesen — has been around since 1995 Underneath the Nightsky is only his third full length album. Utilizing both software and hardware synthesizers he creates sequencing based music with hints of Tangerine Dream and Jean Michel Jarre. Most of the album is his compositions except Winterland” which was co-composed with Robert Schroeder-Trebor.

  5. Matt Howarth / Sonic Curiosity

    This release from 2007 offers 58 minutes of cosmic electronic music.
    Nattefrost is Bjorn Jeppesen. Phil Molto contributes guitar, and one track is co-written with Robert Schroeder-Trebor.

    This music spends more time integrating with the cosmos than just luxuriating underneath a night sky. The tunes elevate and expand, infusing the audience with an affinity with the galactic panorama. At the same time, peppy melodies flavor those expansive moods with vivacious character, transforming spacey harmonics into exhilarating melodies possessed of inspirational puissance.
    Moody atmospheric textures provide a backdrop for energetic electronics that surge into play with ponderous determination. Urgent cycles are established, then allowed to roll in the midground while auxiliary riffs surface to guide the tunes to airless altitudes.
    Threads of gurgling pulsations generate a constant sense of expectation, building tension with a blooping frivolity. The melodies evoke a vibrant ascension, constantly striving for additional height, resulting in a dizzying euphoria that is quite pleasant. Complex keyboard notes flavor the tunes with novel diversions that serve to lend agitation to the dreamy milieu.
    While percussion is present, the majority of rhythms are cocooned in burring electronic fuzz that attributes each beat with extra vibration. Some of the time, tempos are just approximated by the rapid application of strident notes.

    The compositions tastefully blend aspects of portentous drama with airy efforts to achieve escape velocity. Jeppesens tendency to inject peppy riffs on top of soothing layers produces a lively sound that revitalizes as it lifts.

    This new album by Nattefrost is a thrilling sonic adventure, of a great artistic quality. It consists in nine pieces that can more or less be framed within a Space Music style with some elements of Synth-Pop. The compositions not follow the usual outline of most Space Music and Synth-Pop, but advance in different directions.
    Although there are some relaxed parts, the general structure of the album displays an energy that, not quite becoming frantic, makes the music very dynamic.

    Bjorn Jeppesen and Robert Schroeder have done a release that I can listen to all day on repeat, That’s how great this is, Just too good to get burnt out on.

    Waves noises and distant spectral choirs introduce a Scandinavian poem, recited by the suave voice of Ute Stemmann, open the road of Translogical Movements. A sequential movement with metal wings that intersect on their fine echoic beats gives an undulating rhythm to which is added a nasal synth to sonorities of acidity bagpipe. In parallel, synth follows the layout of the sequencer in an analog universe of long ago, pointing out the continual noises of the 70s. The modulations are superb and mould a rhythm which becomes more agitated, on weak synthetic loops and beautiful harmonious themes. What a start and what a total change that Bjorn Jeppesen undertakes on this Nattefrost 2nd opus. Forsaking his mythical nebulous sonority, he splits the atmosphere of a more aggressive sonority and offers a solid opus where harmony is combined with powerful rhythms.
    Searching for a Distant Planet, Underneath the Nightsky and Intergalactic Journey concretize this new approach with slightly jerky sequencers, on nervous cadences supported by beautiful structures of bass and percussions with beautiful solos, and more direct sonorities, which are transformed into beautiful thematic melodies along with the very cosmic sound effects of the cosmic waves.
    But the force of Nattefrost remains when he exploits longer titles, giving free course to its Gregorian thought, with his Scandinavian folklore, as on Observing Emotions. A superb title with the fast outcome where the static rhythms occupy of start the first furrows with a redundant and undulating sequencer. The metallic percussions are flexible and give an exquisite depth to a title which gimlets on its axis, leaving a throbbing tempo nibbling our vision. Discrete chorus, winds of Orion, absent synth on hypnotic loops, our brain is invades of a melting melody resulting from a obsessing bass which leaves its place to a synthetic sequence to leaping chords on the placid and enveloping reverberations waves.
    The staticity makes place to the rapids sequences of Winterland. An intense flow with, in background, a fluid synth that supports the undulating and melodious movement, fusing of beautiful buckled solos, enriched by Phil Molto guitar.
    In Different View on Jupiter offers an undecided tempo with a hopping structure to light groove, just like his very light synthetic approach.
    The Pleasure of Tranquility is a sumptuous space ballade, girdled of beautiful suave synth, with nasal breaths, and a sequential whirling movement. The atmosphere is vaporous and felted, on beautiful revolving cymbals.
    A jerky sequencer extends its nervous beats in opening of The Magic of Forgotten Times. Its fine loops of Oracle whirl. Invading they fuse of sound effects on a flexible synth with floating and moulding spheres of influence. A subtle modulation brings the tempo to another level where the synth is more solemn on a rotary sequencer, with the effigies of an intergalactic war which finishes on a mini solo of vaporous percussions. Like a watchman, the synth grinds with an underhand approach, getting the sequencer on its trace of origin. A very beautiful piece which is spread out with the size of its title.

    Bjorn Jeppesen could have been satisfied to exploit the sonority of his former work, Absorbed in Dreams and Yearning, that we would have to excuse him, so much it was exquisite. On Underneath the Nightsky, it ventures on new paths, with all the audacity and the mythical of the Scandinavian charms, resulting in a superb album. Built well and, especially extremely melodious on ebullient sequences and rhythms which astonish and surrounds our music room of a perpetual sonorous overflow at the same time intense and subtly melodic.
    A must.for all EM fans.

    2007. Sylvain Lupari / Canada
