Kayanis - Machines and Dreams
Artist: Kayanis
P: 1998
Kayanis is a Polish multi-instrumentalist who, according to the live-recordings on a promotional video, is quite popular in his homeland. I think this is also possible here because his music is very accessible. If you talk about multi-instrumentalists you quickly think of guys like Mike Oldfield and Gandalf and I must say that Kayanis' music has traces of these two masters but also Jarre comes in mind. Kayanis' music can somewhat be compared to the synthesizer-driven Oldfield-albums like "The Songs Of Distant Earth" and "Tubular Bells III".
The album starts of classical-symphonic as in Jarre's "The Emigrant" . Then the single "Arecibo" follows which has a very nice melody. Again, Jarre sends greetings because of the women/children-choir in "Ellie" which has a simularity to "September". In "Lost Tribe" the electric guitar comes more on the foreground which brings the music into Gandalf. The very epic "Phobos" is all Oldfield through the extensive acoustic and electric guitarparts, the synt-interludes and beautiful melodies. Even a guitarpart from Oldfield's "Tubular Bells" is used. This track clearly shows his talent. Also a fine piece is "Finale" which could be from a Vangelis-soundtrack and then the opening returns. This is a strong album by a fine musician.

Kayanis - Synesthesis
Artist: Kayanis
P: 2001
Synenthesis is a much larger scale project. It is comprised of nine tracks that work together as a cohesive whole. Tempo and style changes are frequent--there are touches of classical, new age, progressive and even metal. Kayanis, accompanied by Jacek Szczepkowski, the sound engineer, entered the Keyamo Studio (built specially for the project) on January 2, 2001. The left it for good in June--yet still some work was to be doney at a mastering facility. More than a hundred and fifty musicians and vocalists participated in the recording. The album involves a good load of synth sounds, extraordinary guitar work, vocals, choirs and a chamber orchestra. The album is a union of styles--it cannot really be compared to anything, Synesthesis marks a new path in synth-based music: somewhere between EM, progressive rock and classical film music. Gentle yet extremely powerful at times, classical yet modern, passionate and strong but still melodious, sometimes even relaxing, this is an album of tremendous proportions. It won't leave your CD player for long once you put it on.
