Blenner, Serge

Serge Blenner is an independent composer based in Hamburg / Germany. Unlike many of his contemporaries he will not "try anything" to attract public attention. Instead he works consequently on the development of his personal styles of composition and orchestration. He started to release music since 1980.

Serge Blenner - Amour

Artist: Serge Blenner
P: 1997

Amour is what many musicians strive for during their entire career a moving, yet restrained work that can simultaneously reveal artful sensitivity and technical accomplishment. From the opening, melancholy melodies of "The Deserts" (that could serve well as the opening title soundtrack of a motion picture) to the resplendent tones of "Voyage"; Blenner leads the listener through a variety of well-wrought soundscapes.
It is interesting to note that Blenner has not received more press given both the resiliency and quality of his musical output but that may be in part because Blenner is not a trendy artist. While 70s improvisational imitators may capture their fifteen minutes of fame by recreating the past, Blenner’s music will likely have legs well into the future. Amour may be one of Blenner's finest albums to date, which is saying quite a bit in a solo career that spans nearly two decades and remarkable recordings such as ‘Equateur’ and ’Liberation’ that sound as engaging today as they did the day they were released.
That alone is worthy of respect in a field where electronic-dominated recordings can quickly date themselves if not well produced.

Serge Blenner - Cosmos

Artist: Serge Blenner
P:
1990
"We are talking about a remarkable composer, Blenner has his own and clearly recognizable style. "Cosmos" isn´t background music, it isn´t electronic entertainment. It is unashamedly ambitioud serious music of the 20th century, that grafities its listener with intensive musical experience".

Serge Blenner - Equateur

Artist: Serge Blenner
P: 1988

This French-born genius living nowadays in Hamburg is extremely interesting, for he composes exclusively with synthesizers and computers... for Blenner´s not in the least a sound-painter using riffs, but a composer. Equateur shows his melodic style with nice PPG Synthesizer stuff, that creates a certain environment.

Serge Blenner - Liberation

Artist: Serge Blenner
P: 1992

"Liberation" features much more varied and intelligent usage of synth textures, giving the tracks a orchestral, neo-classical feel, sprinkled with sequenced, rhythmic melodies in the background. Blenner shows that the adventurous spirit is still alive in the French electronics scene.
The fifteen tracks span just a bit more than 72 minutes, utilizing the capacity of the media to good effect, which, in my opinion, is also a positive thing.
In summary, this is high-quality electronic music that should appeal to those who enjoy the Berlin electronics sound, Jarre, and prior Blenner output.

Serge Blenner - Miroir de Soi

Artist: Serge Blenner
P: 2004

This album from Serge Blenner features 12 tracks of electroacoustic music. Digital creations that sound like symphonic movie scores or soundtracks to romantic picnics in a park. While all instruments are performed by synths, samplers or computer software the overall sound of the album is acoustic guitars, strings and piano. This makes it less “electronic” in the traditional sense, and the structures of the songs are symphonic soundscapes.

Serge Blenner - Musique de Chambre

Artist: Serge Blenner
P:
2008
On this album (the 17th since 1980) Serge creates dramatic, symphonic electronic music filled with rhythmic energy, powerful arrangements and effectual touches. In these times of electronic noodling and minimal creativity this album contains music that overflows with imagination, energy & brilliant melodic tone colors. he new album “Musique de Chambre” has even more refinement. His use of the sound library of the Vienna orchestra is amazing. Like me Serge Blenner must be a perfectionist. He brings us some heartbreaking melodies on this album. Have you ever been brought into tears...simply because the music you are listening to is so beautiful?. The album opens with “Balance”. Besides that you will recognize the Serge Blenner footprint, he has his own unique style, you will notice the warm deep sounds of the orchestra strings and the crystal clear voice of the vocals without words. This recording has a great sound quality. Blenner's music seems to be in balance on this album.

Serge Blenner - Symbolique

Artist: Serge Blenner
P: 1993

This is impressive music to admire. The compositions are all varied and strong, almost a symphony of music as the moods and movements change, mixing the styles admirably, creating an areal sound- track. A magnificent album from France´s best known secret.
The release from the French synthesist who has long laboured in the shadow of Jarre, but who seems to have eclipsed him in inventiveness and diversity. This work harkens back to the melodic days of "La Dimension Prochaine" and such, melodic electronic music at its most pleasant.

Serge Blenner - Virtualis

Artist: Serge Blenner
P: 2001

The twelve pieces on "Virtualis" are very different in atmosphere and construction: orchestral bombast, spherical pianomelodies, native sounds and French texts, which are sung or told with a warm voice. "Splendeur" with its wonderful stringsounds, a women´s voice and a calm rhythm can easily be used as filmmusic Harps and cello's introduce "Lumière" in which Blenner speaks a text. "Oriental" is a strong case of Arabric orchestral music. Blenner's samples are really great. This can also be heard very well in the dark and menacing "Elan Vital" in which the acoustic guitarsound is brilliant. The last three pieces on the CD, "Erato", "Les Muses" and "Vivace", bring him closer to his earlier, more rhythmic, albums but bit a bit of a loungefeeling to it.

Serge Blenner - Vision et Poesie

Artist: Serge Blenner
P: 1995
"Upbeat rhythms, sparkling melodies, and some characteristically grand chord patterns make "Vision et Poésie" yet another fine creation by Serge Blenner. While his French counterpart J-M Jarre has been bringing spectacle to the majority of Europe over the last few years, Blenner has been making an impact in subtler style. Evolving his hard to categorize sound with everything from orchestral samples to human voice, Blenner remains the more sonically adventurous of the two, despite remaining very accessible in style".
