Brendan Pollard - Expansion

Artist: Brendan Pollard 
P: 2005    
Brendan Pollard plays Mellotron M400 plus various tape frames, Beast Duophonic Modular System, Bohm Soundlab Modular System, SRS RP3 Noise Generator Modular System, Doepfer MAQ 16/3 Sequencer, Fender Rhodes Stage 54, Elka Rhapsody, Arp Pro DGX, Micromoog, Octave Kitten, SRS Aurora Monosynth, SRS Philtertron, Roland JP8000, SRS Dual Phaser Units, Dynacord EC280 Echo, and Dynacord Analogue Delay.
No computer, Atari or any software was used.
This is reliving the 70's all over again, TD resurrected once more. Brendan delivers the goods right on target. Loads of sequences, Mellotrons and more mellotrons what more could you possibly want/ask for. The genre of Spacemusic was born out of a hand-full of albums released by a few Berlin based groups in the mid-1970s.
Since that time, a great deal of music has been created which owes much to this faction's inspired early work. Of the multitude of albums produced, only a few manage to accurately re-create the mysterious moods and sprawling scale found on the originals. Add to this constellation Expansion (60'55") by Brendan Pollard. This album aspires to something beyond the mere imitation of the classics. Pollard's work is more about rediscovering the spacious minimalism responsible for the enigmatic character of the original than it is the process of moment-by-moment recreation.

Brendan Pollard - Flux Echoes

Artist: Brendan Pollard 
P: 2007    
This CD follows along the lines of his Expansion CD with loads of wonderful Mellotron sounds plus as an added bonus he's incorporated the sounds of a guest guitarist. 4 tracks totaling 73:26 minutes of Berlin School music. A massive gear list accompanies this new release. Flux Echoes (73'26") pulses within the aura of Ricochet, Rubycon and Phaedra.
With these classics enshrined (along with an impressive inventory of '70s era instruments) in his musical core, Brendan Pollard realizes music that melds thirty year old hopes and dreams with the possibilities of the 21st century.
The four tracks travel from regions of elemental expressive force and bursts of dazzling sequencer facility to moments of powerful stillness. This album is full of indulgent Mellotron pads, glittering synth modulations and throbbing modular rhythms - and may have listeners imagining their movement through space, or is it space that is moving through them? We are always at home in our past, yet Pollard's work encourages us to hear this music anew.
It's exciting to witness a musician, starting out in an age of digital idea-junkies, make the medium large again.
A must for the old school Tangerine Dream fans.

Pollard, Canovas, Dolente, Daniel - Two Roads

Artist: Brendan Pollard, Javi Canovas, Adrian Dolente, Michael  Daniel

Way back in 2006 I promised my good friend Javi Canovas that we would one day make a collaboration cd. Some good friends joined us in the journey, Michael Daniel from Pollard Daniel Booth and my old synth technician Adrian Dolente. Lots of old friends lent some of my old equipment back to me and so during December 2012 and March 2013 Two Roads was recorded in three different locations, Bedford, Liverpool and Tenerife.

Pollard, Daniel + Booth - Eight

Artist: Pollard, Daniel & Booth
P: 2018

Earlier this year after 7 years away from the music scene Brendan managed to buy back some of gear he had to sell in 2011.
Set up in his new studio he invited his old PDB bandmates to come down for a jam. Over 4 days in the summer, through heatwave and storms, the band recorded several hours of material. Following more recording sessions in Michael's studio he produced the 4 tracks that comprise the new album Eight.
An album the band believe to be their best release so far.

Pollard, Daniel + Booth - IV DVD

Artist: Pollard, Daniel & Booth
P: 2010
At the end of march 2010, PDB allowed an "outside" camera operator into the studio for the first time to film the sessions for what would ultimately end up as PDB IV. The raw footage was taken away and edited by Phil Booth, the result is a film that takes a peek into the private world of PDB at work in the studio.
All compositions by PDB except the themes from "The Call" and "Ricochet", included as a playful and respectful nod to Tangerine Dream.

Pollard, Daniel + Booth - Live 26.09.2009

Artist: Pollard, Daniel & Booth
P: 2009    
Ltd 100
You can sit here and say the music from this "Awakenings" concert is very much like Tangerine Dream in the "Rubycon" era.
But no, the recording is more than that, it is an exploration of analogue synthesizers being tested to the limit as if on some test to see if the boundaries of t.d. mid 70's could be pushed back. There are also elements of Michael Hoenig on display.

Pollard, Daniel + Booth - September 2009 Jams

Artist: Pollard, Daniel & Booth
P: 2009    
LTD 100
A follow up to their self-titled debut, this one is even more austerely packaged, but once again what matters is the excellent Berlin school music within.
“Catalyst” is a brilliant extended Teutonic jam session over 50 minutes long, with great sequencing that chugs along just so for most of it. The opening minutes are stellar atmospheric space music, with some really strong electric guitar courtesy of Michael “Mick” Daniel aka Hashtronaut. He really does a phenomenal job adding just the right extra punch to the proceedings without overwhelming things at all. Once we get about 8:00 in to the journey, it sounds a lot like some of the best RMI offerings I’ve heard, and that is saying something. And although the sequencing is the thing, check out the warbly experimental haunting section that ensues just past the 22:00 mark. Beautiful Mellotron flutes smooth things out nicely, keeping things from going too far afield. This softer section continues for quite a while, with sequencers not resuming until past the 33:00 point, though of course they are quite welcome when they do. This is a masterpiece, and well worth the price of admission alone.
But the trio follows it up with another 20 minutes of first rate music in the form of “The Chaos Balance.” This one stays mellow throughout, with male choirs, abstract deep space sounds, and warmer ethereal touches, making a fine finish to a fine album.

Pollard, Daniel + Booth - Volume 2

Artist: Pollard, Daniel & Booth
P: 2010
The epic Pollard / Daniel / Booth / Ramsey / FSP concert from Hampshire Jam 8.
Oceans of mellotron and walls of modular.
‘Hampshire 1’ commences with fizzing, twittering effects which act as an intro for two different Heavenly Mellotron lines. Close on their heals enters a rapid tinkling sequence. A second heavy bass sequence joins it and we are soon belting along at break neck speed, the foundations shaking as we go. Electric guitar touches heighten the excitement still further. What an incredible opener!
After whooshing atmospherics and beautiful ethereal effects ‘Hampshire 2’ continues its slow exquisite build up with a lonesome synth flute lead. When the first sequence does arrive it is again of the rapid high register variety. The second sequence falls into formation with the first perfectly. A third, deeper sequence, joins in the fun and we are soon bathed in a sea of pulsations. Pure Berlin School heaven. The sequences evolve like living entities and the guitar, though used sensitively and never above the middle of the mix, adds even more oomph.
‘Hampshire 3’ grabs the attention right from the opening few seconds with sonic blasts and Mellotron. We then follow the winning formula outlined in the previous two numbers. A sequence emerges, which is again first rate, topped off perfectly by a sensitive flute lead line. The sequence morphs wonderfully, little guitar touches making brief but most welcome appearances.
The sequencer is fired up right from the first second for ‘Hampshire 4 (Encore 1)’ and the trons, taking the lead role this time, have never sounded better. Edgar Froese style guitar tops things off perfectly. The audience demands more and sonic screeches get ‘Hampshire 5 (Encore 2)’ underway. Soothing Mellotron softens things a little until the sequences burst forth once more and proceed to give fans of Berlin School music exactly what they want.
