what a delightful album. Thank you for sharing this. Let me put a plea for
information and a criticism first, so they are out of the way and we can come
to the absolutely delightful part of this mail. :-)
Which instruments (soft and hardware) did you use?
The criticism is this: it would have been even more to my taste, if there
had been vocals. Especially since I've heard two of your "vocal" pieces.
It was good to meet at least one old acquaintance in here: a change of
heart. A little shorter and it might have been the perfect introduction of the
version with vocals. I loved the addition of the strings and other sparkly
The first two pieces blended very nicely. OK, they were designed to do so.
The second piece reminded me of Music Instructor, a group(?) from the late
90s. Their first pieces made up as instructions on how to make dance music or
make a party or whatever. :-)
the balance of spheric sounds and chord and hiphop influenced beats gives it
something very satisfactory in my ears. I also enjoy the dark mood. Something,
which I would call the Skandinavian mood. Perhaps the mixture of darkness and
openness or wideness.
if I had to pick a favourite, it would be Lives. Perhaps just the element of
the already known with a strong "hook line". Perhaps I've just come to love
your guitar sound. On reflection it is a combination of the two.
I hope, that sometime soon, we'll get some more vocal music from you to get
the icing on the birthday cake. A very lovely album all through. You have
heard me complain about the repetetiveness of the music without solo
instruments or vocals and yet I've listened through it all and haven't been
bored. Only inspired to hear the Theremin line over Lives or the soulful
guitar solo Flow or The Last Time.
I just thought again, that it's intriguing and reviving to hear music, where
you can't immediately guess the synthesizers or sound libraries. So often,
when I still listen to something popular, I can at least put my finger
directly on it for some instruments. But this is well chosen, well processed
and mixed, so nothing seems obvious.
Thank you again, ver much, for some new splendid music.
