Sequentia Legenda - Amira

Artist: Sequentia Legenda
P: 2015

Somewhere amid music, time and love
The music of the heart is the essence of bliss. This piece bears a message of bliss and hope. It is Berlin School Electronic Music where emotion and sensitivity transport you towards a world of dreams.
The choirs are backed by strings, the rhythm section is interspersed with double-bass and cello attacks, sequences blend with pizzicati, and all these together create an ethereal collage that shapes the musical space, where sounds are made of colours that persist somewhere amid music, time and love.

Sequentia Legenda - Blue Dream

Artist: Sequentia Legenda
P: 2015
“I would be tell that Blue Dream is a track forgotten by Klaus Schulze in his studios between Body Love and Mirage that I would believe it” It's a friend who tipped me off. His message was clear; I had to listen to this music of Sequentia Legenda. A group and/or an artist that I didn't know, neither from Adam nor Eve. I thus clicked on the link he sent me so to hear the first minutes of "Fly Over Me". Dusts of cosmos, absent voices and synth pads to fine modulations have soon awake my curiosity. And I contacted the artist.
Sequentia Legenda is a French artist who discovered EM of the Berlin School kind at the beginning of the 80's. It's an old album of Klaus Schulze which was lying in the music collection of his parents that has pricked his curiosity and made of him a bulimic of the art. As will prove the multiple albums that he will buy and his desire to learn as much as possible about the instruments which created these fuzzy rhythms and these esoteric ambiences. Years passed. His collection grew bigger, but the information on synthesizers sounded to be of pure legends, hearsay, gossip. That is years later, and purely by chance, that he will finally find THE instrument. It happened in the back shop of musical store that Laurent was going to find the most symbolic of EM instruments; the famous Minimoog! Over the years, he amassed an impressive collection of synthesizers and it's only recently that he decided to plunge and to compose a music which aims to be a tribute to his biggest influence: Klaus Schulze.
The first sequence of rhythm emerges a little after the 2nd minute. We are in full period of Body Love with this movement of sequences which goes and comes, like a timeless loop, under the hot caresses of a synth to the melancholic veils. The movement is minimalist and its evolution goes by quite smoothly. The sighs of synths are soothing and divert our listening towards some paradisiacal heavens. That will be only in a subsequent listening that we shall notice that the rhythm has changed, has increased its pace a little bit. It's more fluid. A bit jerky, but always so dreamlike. And the more it goes and the more this ambient rhythm shows a peaceful swiftness. At this point, the synth pads magnetize the most our attention. There is a perfect balance in tones and in emotionalism. If the rhythm stirs constantly, the ambiences are always breathing of serenity. The astral waves roll in cosmos, while that fine and somber modulations make contrasts with a structure of rhythm which makes now the percussions pounding delicately. And things are changing. If the velocity gains the rhythm, the ambiences are getting more poetic. We hear these choirs so absent, which haunt the great majority of the celestial moods of the Berlin School, roaming now on a rivulet of sequences which glitter of its thousand reflections.
Honestly? I'm under the charm!
I would be tell that “Blue Dream” is a track forgotten by Klaus Schulze in his studios between Body Love and Mirage that I would believe it. Everything is there. The minimalist approach and this art that Schulze has to stretch a piece without that seems long. Sequentia Legenda waters constantly his repetitive structure of pads, astral voices and electronic elements which bicker the ambiences over of a structure of rhythm filtered of many hypocritical modulations. We got back on our feet and ppfft! All has changed. But when? And it's all the charm of “Blue Dream” which goes through its 10 stages without that we never see nothing coming. This is hypnosis at big knocks of charm. Even when the movement becomes a bit stroboscopic. Even when the rhythm makes oscillate its sequenced keys like a thousand of bottles in the sea on a sunny day tortured of great winds. The synth rays are there to calm this gregarious violence which stirs up from the inside, revealing all the charms of these ambient rhythms which make duel with seraphic ambiences. And it is like that for the 33 minutes that is lasting “Blue Dream”.  Is Sequentia Legenda a gust of wind in the sky of EM? A little as Danger in Dream was in 2001 with the stunning Entrance? That would be a pity because “Blue Dream” is a beautiful music piece in the realm of EM which is perfumed by the most beautiful fragrances of a music of which the charms will remain obsessing for still the coming years. I still have my ears full of dreams and of hope to hear more of Sequentia Legenda. To hear more of his music. Get our fingers crossed!

"ETHEREAL is an album full of emotions, which are present through the sequences and the sonic texture. The Moog Modular brings a particular color to the sound palette of this new opus.

Sequentia Legenda - Extended

Artist: Sequentia Legenda
P: 2016

«With this collaboration between Tommy and myself, we wanted to share our passion for Berlin School music with listeners and pay tribute to a musical movement that has still bright days ahead of it.»
Laurent Schieber (Sequentia Legenda)

«Most of the spacey music is made of three components : synth pads, sequencer loops and (sometimes annoying) solos. Sequentia Legenda is intelligent and sensitive enough to create his - strictly instrumental - music with the first two components only: the pads and the loops. In his spacey compositions, where light meets minimalism, and fitted to dream and meditation, there is no room for flashy solo, no room for protruding showing-off, instead the space is filled with highly sophisticated pads, perpetually changing and loops, themselves shaped in ever-changing patterns, sometimes highly complex, even if they often seem obvious.»
Yves Blanc (La Planète Bleue)

«Sequentia Legenda's music is both an immersive and emotional experience. The synthesist modulates sounds and rhythms the way a painter uses his palette of colors to fill out progressively a big blank canvas with a whole universe. The pictural tints of Sequentia Legenda are here electronic loops, sonic textures and ethereal pads that the musician keeps in harmony and brings out of the silence to transport us to the very depths of ourselves. Each of us will then wander in our own ever-changing cosmic landscape. This is a wonderful journey that brings new enjoyment with each listening.»
