E=motion - A Dream Within A Dream

Artist: E=motion
P: 2004
The Berlin school of electronic music lives on....in Poland!
The latest CD from E=Motion showcases the interlocking sequences originally made popular by artists like Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze. While the Berlin style originated years ago, E=Motion keeps it relevant with new sounds and by incorporating elements of trance and other more recent styles.
E=Motion is the name for Polish musician Jacek Spruch's solo projects. Spruch is a fan of Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, and other early popular electronic music artists. While E=Motion's music is influenced by the Berlin school style, especially Tangerine Dream's work of the late seventies and early eighties, it does not sound derivative or imitative. Spruch has taken elements of the musical language of these early artists, such as the heavy use of interlocking sequences and hypnotic rhythms, and used them as building blocks for his own unique style.
The eight tracks are all around 5 or 6 minutes in length. This allows Spruch to take the time to develop his material, without wearing it thin.
Track 4, Out of Nowhere, is one of the highlights of the CD. It features a prominent bass line throughout the song, along with jack-hammer percussion. Spruch adds airy string pads and analog-style synth counter melodies to create a piece that is both hypnotic and melodic.
The next track, Timebound, starts out with dreamy sequences that would have been at home on TD's soundtrack to Risky Business. Spruch adds phased percussion and, about half-way through the track, features a tasteful synth solo.
Night Vision, cranks things up with a harder edge and driving rhythms. Techno drum sounds and analog-style bass lines propel the song along. Constantly shifting sequences drop in and out. Spruch tops it off with several layers of interlocking melodies.
The final cut, Dreaming, slows things down to provide a mellow ending to the CD. Spruch starts the track off slowly, introducing FM-style sounds and a slow beat. This provides a backdrop for some Klaus Schulze-style synth soloing.
Throughout the CD, Spruch uses a great variety of classic sounds, including DX-7 FM bell & piano sounds, Fairlight-style leads and pads, and plenty of analog synth work. To these classic sounds, he adds the percussion sounds of more recent techno and trance music. There is plenty of unique new synth work, too. By mixing and matching classic, modern and custom sounds, Spruch creates arrangements that start where the Berlin school artists left off.
E=Motion's A Dream Within a Dream is a treat for fans of classic synth music.

E=motion - Infinite Motion

Artist: E=motion
P: 2002/ 2017
Another mellow melodic work from the SynG@te label, Infinite Motion begins brightly with “Hesitation,” with moderate pace and energy and a pleasant beat and tune. It flows right into the equally light and lively “Circular Movement.” A really cool bubbly pulse runs through the latter part of this track. If there is a polar opposite to cold dark ambient, this would be it. The whole disc exudes positive energy, exemplified by the brief uplifting “American Dream.” “Motif” is next, a quirky fun little number that shuffles right along. A classic Jarre sequence opens “Audio Freak” in stellar style, music on the move. The drums come on a bit too heavy and mechanized, but the synths are great. “Alex” is a great midtempo piece, adding layers of sound just so. After a series of pop-length tunes, the disc finishes with “Beyond The History,” an 18 ½-minute epic that starts at a brisk pace and never lets up. Whereas the tracks before it were strong in the melody department, this one relies mainly on a strong beat and sequencing to carry it along, which works fine. This disc is perfect to put on while driving down the coast highway in the sunshine.

E=motion - Re-trance-mission

Artist: E=motion
P: 2004 / 2017
Two CDs from Polish musician Jacek Spruch, continuing with a more rhythmic sequencer-led style of EM. If you're familiar with his earlier works you can rest assured that these carry on in the same vein & that includes 2004's "Re-Trance-Mission", there's no trance here (even if the up-tempo opener might lead you to suspect that's where it's going), just another hour of solid rhythmic synthmusic with a good deal of strident soloing throughout, excellent interplay of sequences gracing a good number of tracks while some of the slower rhythms remind of those that C.H.A.O.S. have made such good use of over the years. The fact that none of the titles were supplied on my promo copy makes a more indepth review impossible but, basically, if you like lively EM with plenty of sequencing to get your teeth into then check this out pronto.
That also goes for his latest release "Telepath" which, basically carries on where it's predecessor left off, aside from a few littles unexpected touches such as the reflective mood of "Close-Up" & the ethnic-tinged percussion of "Distant Vision", the style is very much the same. "Impulse" opens the album with a sequence line not unlike TD's "Love On A Real Train" & then builds in the established manner into an enjoyable number although top marks go to the 13-minute "Mind Transmission" which, due to some constantly changing & inventive melodic work, keeps the listener's mind fully focussed throughout. Another plus point is that the tracks are segued to form continuous musical suites which gives both albums a good deal more substance.
