Mark Jenkins - Modular Sessions 16: Where no One has gone before

Artist: Mark Jenkins, Thaneco, Spyra, Fritz Mayr u.a.
P: 2023
LTD 100
This Star Trek-inspired issue of "MODULAR SESSIONS" is one of the strongest to date with European synth musicians Volker Rapp, Arend Westra, Fritz Mayr, Thaneco, Tobias Becker and Wolfram Spyra alongside US composer and music journalist Mark Vail, all compiled and produced by Mark Jenkins. Synthesizers, sequencers, electronic drums and percussion, guitars, sampled voices and even some oboe, in the styles of Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, Jean-Michel Jarre, Ashra and Mike Oldfield.

 
Mark Jenkins explains "in this issue the seven guest musicians have all contributed strong "starter segments" powerfully representing their individual styles. I've added melodies, harmonies, synth sounds and guitar plus a sprinkle of Trek inspiration". AREND WESTRA pictures a hero of Star Fleet with an anthemic sequencer piece reminiscent of Chris Franke. VOLKER RAPP takes us along on the precipitous first warp speed flight with the eccentric Zephraim Cochrane (from TOS "Metamorphosis" and "First Contact") under the gaze of stern Vulcans, also depicted in Fritz Mayr's Eastern-influenced track. The modular synthesizers of MARK VAIL picture the chaotic legacy of the Grups ("grownups") from TOS "Miri", while MARK JENKINS pictures the headlong plunge towards the galactic barrier in TOS "Where No Man Has Gone Before", a long sequencer rock piece reminiscent of Tangerine Dream's "Cyclone".
 
The TOBIAS BECKER track features his rhythms, synths and oboe sections along with dramatic Klingon speech and chanting, while WOLFRAM SPYRA re-appears with an atmospheric and mysterious "ST Discovery"-inspired sequencer sequel to his work on Modular Sessions 11. The album closes with a tumultuous multi-sequencer track by THANECO from Greece reminiscent of Peter Baumann or Jean-Michel Jarre, depicting mankind's first encounter with the evil Borg.

Mark Jenkins with Spyra - Modular Sessions 13 Artemis

Artist: Mark Jenkins & Others
P: 2023
LTD 100
MODULAR SESSIONS 13: "Artemis" is one of the most powerful collaborations to date in the monthly series of numbered limited run CD's. Six of the most exciting synth music acts from around the world have joined with Mark Jenkins to create an electronic music tribute to NASA's latest moon mission.

We start at dawn in Florida's "Launch Complex 39B", with sounds of nature underlying massive dramatic synth chords from Scotland's TRANSCEIVE (Steven Nelson). Liftoff with the slogan "We Rise Together" is underscored by TamiX (Nan Tang) from China, her Buchla modular system creating a thumping bass pattern and abstract sounds. "Artemis" running for almost 12 minutes is in the powerful sequencer style of Redshift and dedicated to the memory of the late Mark Shreeve. "Orion" builds from an intricate sequencer pattern by Germany's DER SPYRA (Wolfram Spyra) while "Mach 32", the terrifying re-entry velocity for the mission, is based on sequences MYSTIC FREQUENCIES (Ronald Mark Peters) from the USA. The mood becomes more mysterious as fellow American Joe Paradiso uses a massive interconnected modular synthesizer system to image the sounds of the little V.I.P.E.R. rover scouring the moon for signs of water. Meanwhile the mission places in permanent lunar orbit the "Gateway to Mars", pictured in evolving sequences by midibitch (Fredy Engel) from Germany.

Moon and Melody (Spyra + Roksana) - Voices of Ancestors

Artist: Der Spyra & Roksana
P: 2021

The idea for the album came up in autumn 2020 when Roksana Vikaluk and Wolfram Spyra (the duo "Moon & Melody") crossed the threshold of St. Mary's Church - one of the most important architectural monuments in Brandenburg - for the first time. Deeply inspired by the power that this centuries-old architectural monument exudes, and above all by the "breath", the extraordinarily beautiful inner sound of the church, they decided to realize the sound installation "Voices of Ancestors" and record an album in the rooms of the church . The recordings took place live and under completely natural conditions, whereby mainly a bianural recording technique was used, which gives the listener a sound impression of being close to the location of the recording: In the middle of the altar area of ​​the church there was an artificial head, its ears Recorded all of the sound using built-in microphones. The church had a life of its own - the bells, the chirping of birds and other noises in the streets of the city, the footsteps and conversations of the visitors, the creaking of the doors ... - all of this fitted naturally into the resulting musical story. A unique effect of further and closer sound levels was achieved by Roksana Vikaluk's almost uninterrupted movement in the space of the approximately 80 meters long and 45 meters wide church. In the middle of the church stood the Bowchimes, a huge steel instrument played by Wolfram Spyra. A microphone was also installed on the Bowchimes in order to achieve a natural amplification of the sound of the instrument. This effect turned out to be necessary for the final mix of the album. Another microphone was installed next to it for subtle recordings of two sung passages ("O, Sanctissima!" And "Maria Regina Mundi"). During the production of this album the great Bob Rutman, among other things the inventor and master of the Bow Chimes instrument and friend of Roksana and Wolfram, passed away. In his honor, they decided to dedicate this album to the master.
