Michael Stearns - Chronos

Artist: Michael Stearns
P: 1984

One of the best soundtracks ever made by Stearns and his Serge Modular System, with a very unique sound.
Taking the familiar conventions of time-lapse cinematography to a transcendent level of artistic achievement, filmmaker Ron Fricke circled the globe to make Chronos, a stunning 70-millimeter time-lapse tour of natural and man-made wonders. The entire film has the enhanced, hyper-realistic quality of a laser-etched photograph, and by using special cameras and motion-control photographic techniques, Fricke and his technically expert crew were able to create mesmerizing images guaranteed to spark any viewer's sense of awe and wonder. Accompanied by the hypnotic music of Michael Stearns, this visual journey takes the viewer on a tour of over 50 locations on nearly every continent of the world, including explorations of Paris, the Vatican, the Egyptian pyramids, the African veldt, and many more stunning vistas. The cumulative effect is the feeling that the world--from the busiest metropolis to the most serenely remote wilderness landscape--is dictated by "chronos," the rhythm of time to which all living things must submit. Like Koyaanisquatsi and Baraka, this is one of those eye-candy films that was conceived according to its specific theme, so it's not only a soothing visual experience but a thought-provoking study of our fascinating planet.

This production is now nealry 30 years old and is still sold in stores and in some circles is considered a 'classic'. It is one of the first albums to combine Australian Nature Sounds with original relaxing or ambient music.

Michel Huygen + Fernando Jimenez Del Oso - Astralia

Artist: Michel Huygen & Fernando Jimenez Del Oso
P: 1995
Michel Huygen (Neuronium) and the researcher and publisher of enigmatic themes Fernando Jiménez del Oso have united their artistic efforts in this unusual album. Huygen has composed the music, whereas doctor Jiménez del Oso has written some texts he recites with his suggestive, mysterious voice, in some passages of the release.
Both in the musical and in the literary aspects, the theme that has inspired the release is the astral voyage beyond the borders that separate the earthly from the cosmic, life from death. It is presented as a sonic adventure, between the majestic and the enigmatic.
Jiménez del Oso describes a series of paranormal experiences, his voice being distorted by means of atypical sonic effects. Astralia also has the peculiarity of showing the darkest, most disturbing musical aspects in Huygen. Although he does not completely abandon the line of his last albums, much of the music is icy, ghostly, radically electronic. There is a passage of violent percussion that appears to re-create the very same dance of death.

Mind Over Matter - Avatar

Artist: Mind Over Matter
P: 1998

The outstanding number is the title track ‘Avatar’, twenty minutes of pure brilliance. It is a collaboration with Stephen Parsick who’s album ‘Traces of the Past’ has only just fallen out of our charts (and this only because we ran out of stock) after having been there for months. ‘Avatar’ unbelievably however is even better than anything on that album. Things start quietly enough but then a guitar sequence can just start to be heard. The guitar being very processed so that it sounds like another synth as on Ashra’s ‘Inventions for Electric Guitar’. We then get a trademark Parsick sequence combining in such a way with the guitar as to send shivers of excitement down the spine. A rhythm is then added and cosmic shimmers blast over the top like a meteor shower burning up as it plummets earthwards. Intensity builds and builds. The track will appeal to sequencer nuts such as me but it is so much more than that. You are hit with a whole wall of pulsating sound with so much in it shifting and gyrating that it is very hard to concentrate on any one element. One’s imagination is buffeted from one aspect to another but with each passing second awe grows and grows. Do not listen whilst in the company of anyone else as you might look a bit of an idiot with mouth open wide in amazement staring at your hi-fi in disbelief. This track will remain with me forever. Next time Graham appears on Ashley’s show I hope he takes it with him. The other four tracks on the album are also superb. On ‘Magic Garden’ relaxed synth pads give way to a rhythmic sequence which becomes heavier and heavier. Chants can be heard over the top as the sequence shifts and really kicks. The underlying synth textures also work perfectly. At times it reminded me of some of the more rhythmic moments from Paul Haslinger’s ‘World Without Rules’, especially in the way that things start calmly and end up becoming insanely out of control but in such a wonderful way. ‘Freak Street’ has an hilarious start with a waiter reading out the contents of his menu, each item coming with Garlic Bread! When the track gets under way a quirky rhythm, ideal for a summers day, is used to provide the main structure with pleasant melodies weaving around it. A real foot tapper. ‘Avatar’s Dream’ is again rhythmic but more complex and mysterious than the previous track. The effect created is very hypnotic and rather psychedelic. Another stunner. ‘Beyond’ is a rather spacey affair, wonderfully descriptive but with a gentle, restrained, chugging rhythm. An amazing album, just programme out the first and last tracks. (DL)

Mind Over Matter - In Search of Eternity

Artist: Mind Over Matter
P:
1992
With a 22-minute, five-part opener that sounds in parts like Michael Shrieve's "Transfer Station Blue," and symphonic rock elements that recall Jarre, Vangelis and other contemporary composers, the group known as Mind over Matter have found a potent formula to bring their musical influences to life. A "Bolero"-like riff is heard on "Pilgrims of Eternity," again with rock motifs readily at hand.
Mind over Matter is the brainchild of Klaus Hoffman-Hoock, who plays crystalline guitar and all the instruments besides the guest appearances by Patrick Kosmos and a few others. There are Tibetan elements like those used by David Parsons, as well as song titles derivative of the "top of the world," and some spacey tracks that are closer to earlier releases from Mind over Matter.

Mind Over Matter - Palace of the Winds

Artist: Mind Over Matter
P: 1995

The four new tracks and the remixed "Air India" were finally released in 1995 on what is considered to be one of the greatest albums of Mind over Matter, "Palace of the Winds" (IC 2243-2). The album has a beautiful cover of a Tibetan ritual and even features three bonus tracks: an edited version of "Shangri-La", a live-track by M.O.R.E. recorded in Nijmegen in November 1993 ("Himalaya") and a surprising electronic piece from 1976 named after Tibet ("Roof of the World"). Most of the new album was featured during five concerts in Sonsbeck-Hamb and Erkrath in September and November 1995. Klaus also found the time to play sitar on the album "The House of S. Phrenia" by the great German band Solar Project and to release another older track, the high-speed electronic masterpiece "Rohan Rider" from 1980. This highly recommended short track, based on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien.

Mind Over Matter - Under the Stars

Artist: Mind Over Matter
P: 2000

The performances of February 1999 were so excellent, that it would have been a shame not to release anything from these concerts. Thankfully Klaus decided to release a second live album by Mind over Matter in 2000. "Under the Stars" (IC 87 2345-2) included four of the tracks of the stunning Erkrath-shows, albeit under slightly different titles (like "A Night in Mogul's Garden" and "Mellow Kathmandu"). Two other tracks from other concerts (featuring Michael Grüterich and Stephen Parsick) were added to the album: "La Vie (The Dance of Life)" and "The world of Koto".

  • Mellotron – Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock
  • Synthesizer [Vintage] – Stephen Parsick (tracks: 5)

Mind-Flux - Konception of Space

Artist: Mind-Flux
P:
1997
What is space? How would one answer that question in musical terms? With profoundly astral electronics, fanciful keyboards, and determined E-perc. At least, these are the chosen vehicles for Thomas Fanger and Michael Kersten on this 1997 release. Starting with "Destination Unknown", Mind-Flux will show you "Mr. Johnson's Trip to the Moon", "Cars on Mars", "A Moody Night on Cyrus 7", and "Ms. Johnson's Trip to Venus". Be certain your pressure suit is properly sealed, with your earplugs carefully inserted. You'll not want to miss a single note of this sonic excursion. Peppy keyboards caper and prance with nimble-fingered response amid a seething nebula of quantumly-charged electronics. Drones and pulsations are delivered with rapid relish, streaming past you like blurred sequences of shooting stars. Extremely rhythmic E-perc is a constant companion, injecting dance qualities to the tuneage. Periodic use of vocoder vocals lends a Kraftwerk edge to some of this music. You can also expect the strong influence of Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze in the band's early sound. You will also observe the presence of moody, non-rhythmic passages which exemplify Mind-Flux's own evolving style.

This sonic voyage will last 74 minutes.
