The music of Tonal Assembly, the artist name of Taede A. Smedes, is a blendof the sound of Jean-Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream and Vangelis spiced up by influences from Kraftwerk and 80s synthwave music.

The musician behind Tonal Assembly is Dutchman Taede A. Smedes who I know as a frequent and enthusiast visitor of electronic music festivals. I didnt know he also made music for various years that sees its official appearance as the album Lost and Found in Imaginary Landscapes released in spring 2019. Taedes sonic creations are contemporary, warm and accessible, mixing influences of classic Jarre and some of Vangelis flavours with 80s synth-music to a positive, cohesive and emotive-driven whole. For me, Taedes colourful music flies high especially on Beyond Words, the vibrant Runners High and the evocative closing piece Fragility. All in all, Lost and Found in Imaginary Landscapes will appeal and be loved by a wide Em-audience. Nice going, Taede!
