The Dutch duo Harold Teunissen and Andre Theelen released two Cds so far.
Together with Harold Teunissen he used to compose electronic music.
Their music is rather relaxing and sometimes a little experimental. The main instruments they use are synthesizers but they also use soundrecordings and "real" instruments in their music to add just that extra atmosphere. Their main influences are musicians like Steve Roach, Michael Stearns, Brian Eno and lots of other music (from Gustav Mahler to the Prodigy). They think that, as a musician, you should be open to all kinds of music and influences, otherwise you will never progress in your music.
They met in 1991 and soon after that started playing together. Some more equipment was bought and the quality of the compositions improved. After a while they got positive response in their music and decided it was time to release the first product: an audio cassette called Outer Reaches.
Outer Reaches contains 8 original compositions with a total playing time of 59 minutes.
They were voted number 9 on the Top 20 Best Newcomers in 1993 by the listeners of the show Schwingungen.
Syndrone - Blind Date

Artist: Syndrone
P: 1996

"Blind Date" is the 2nd CD of the Dutch duo Harold Teunissen and Andre Theelen. They have developed a very own intriguing style of music that sometimes reminds of Steve Roach and Michael Stearns. Next to the overall morphing, resonating soundscapes the album also offers a few shorter, rhythmical tracks. An adventurous album that more people should give a try.
After a three year break, the album "Blind Date" was released in fall of 1996. The nine tracks on it were recorded during several jam sessions between 1994 and 1996, some of them one-time-only live recordings capturing the spirit of the moment.
It is again Ron Boots who was in charge of the excellent mastering of the duo’s inventive music. "Blind Date" adds another chapter to the duo's highly creative world, as it offers a nice blend of overall morphing, resonating soundscapes explored in the longer tracks next to a few shorter, rhythmic excursions.
The soundscape tracks are slowly developing and building, delving deep into mysterious caverns as heard on "Shift Nine part I and II", which sometimes rides the experimental edge. "Musscheln und andere Tiere" is the longest track on the album, a textural journey which seems to pay tribute to the ambient works of Steve Roach.
The other side of the duo’s music is heard on the rhythmic, electronic free-style tracks "Skin Job" or the humorous "We saw Elvis at the Busstop".
Like its predecessor, "Blind Date" is a well-crafted work. It breaths the joy of making electronic music through all its veins, but is a bit more adventurous compared to their previous cd. Harold & André, thank you for bringing me your inspired music which I still enjoy a lot today!
