Changing Images

In 1979, Martin Kornberger (Keyboards) and Volker Kuhn (Guitars, Keyboards) met each other, deciding to work together on musical ideas. After several cassette albums they finally released their debut-CD The Castle in 1991 introducing the new project name Changing Images and following the electronic/symphonic style of progressive music of the 70th decade. Their second CD, Virtuality was released in 1992 and was - close to the concept - characterized by electronic elements and sequencerlines. Martin , a keyboard and synth specialist with the background of classical piano education, combines in his dense arrangements electronic, rhythmic orientated music with symphonic/classical elements. Volker works with E- and A-guitars and uses MIDI-guitar controlled synths. He combines - musically in the tradition of Robert Fripp an Brian Eno - expressive guitar lines with ambient- and minimal-music athmospheres.Both musical characters complement each other and know how to evoke melodic-rhythmic but also gloomy, opressive scenarios within their complex arrangements with have the characteristics of varied soundtracks - or just: changing images.

Changing Images - S.E.T.I.

Artist: Changing Images
P: 1999
This actual CD album from Changing Images is dedicated to Project SETI – The Search for extraterrestrial Intelligence.  And they are not alone with this: 40 years ago the project SETI was startet,  triggerd by an article from Cocconi and Morrison published in the magazine NATURE. They argued, that it should be possible to receive messages from alien intelligences with radiotelescopes even through a distance of thousands of lightyears. Frank Drake, a researcher of  astrophysics started at that time his first projects to analyse radiotelescope-signals for possible messages. With his known “Drake-formula” he showed, that  there must be intelligent life, using technology similar or higher developed  compared to  mankind  with significant high probability. Today, he is president of the SETI-Institute, dedicated to this search. To analyse the huge amount of data, a unique project was founded – called SETI@home. Via Internet, the calculating power of hundred thousands of PCs is connected – more than 50.000 years CPU-time was achieved right now, more than any supercomputer could offer. History will show, wether this giant search will succeed. Changing Images approaches to this story  in the tradition of  Stanley Kubricks "2001 Odyssee in Space": Dave and GAL – the female bordcomputer of our spaceship - are on track  to alien lifeforms. The zodiac constellation is convenient… so it was on the 11th  of August, 1999 – the day of the total eclipse in europe- this day  the track “Gates” was recorded, to catch a magical spirit. Gates to different worlds are opened through the remaining tracks as well, revealed in the musical style of Changing Images, combined with contemporary sounds and rhythms.

Melodic Synths sounds with guitar. Their project from 1997 was more in the style like their first CD. Here and there you will find touches to  Tangerine Dream, maybe Goblins Club around that time.

Changing Images - The Castle

Artist: Changing Images
P: 1991/ 2007
This "The Castle" is a concept CD about taking a walk in a castle in order to discover it. This German group performs refined and picturesque Progressive. Different ambiences are created for each discovered room in the form of magnifiscent, highly elaborated, arranged and orchestrated melodies full of nuances and evoking BOFFO in this "Rituel" period or Steve HACKETT in "Voyage Of The Acolyte". On "The Art Of Dreaming", this duet (Keyboards & guitar), thanks to his dreamy, impressionist, electronic and picturesque music developing through exchanges between keyboards, guitar and samplers with various sounds, can be placed halfway between NEURONIUM and GANDALF. This is the new edition with 3 Bonustracks from 2007.

Changing Images - Virtuality

Artist: Changing Images
P: 1992
If you like the good sequenzer CDs by Chris Franke and the TD style of the late 80ies, you are right with this CD. Music for dreams and more. Ghostly scenarios and versatile, harmonic moods cover the music. If you like Rob Essers, Frank Südekum or just Danger in Dream, here is something similiar to it.
