Moebius + Beerbohm - Strange Music

Artist: Dieter Moebius + Beerbohm 
P: 1982 / 1996
Dieter Moebius is one of the most important protagonists of avant-garde electronic music in Germany (He is/was part of Cluster and Harmonia). He recorded two albums with the bassist Gerd Beerbohm in 1982 and 1983 – electronic avant-garde pop in its most rigorous form. Beerbohm turned out to be the perfect musical foil for Moebius, affording him free rein, in the very best sense of the expression, to bring his concept of pop music to life. Mastered from original tapes, liner notes by Asmus Tietchens. Endmix by Conny Plank.

Mooch - 3001

Artist: Mooch
P: 1994

'3001' was the recording that spawned all the mid-nineties Mooch albums. Steve used the basic method of recording a changing rhythm on one track, adding many guitar, instrument and short wave radio fragments on the other tracks, using a digital delay at mixdown to achieve the final effect. Because the guitars and other sounds were in time with the rhythm track, marvellous spacey effects could be created during these live, organic mixdowns.
During the production of '3001' and lacking a synthesizer, Steve used educational music software available at North London Collegiate School For Girls, where he worked, to create the rhythm and sequencer tracks on the album. Over this he laid multiple guitars, ocarinas, radio sounds, ethnic percussion, and much more.
'3001' had a science fiction theme running through it, telling the cosmic tale of a laser sail starship travelling toward first contact with aliens of the star system beta Hydrii.

Mooch - In Search of the Acid Metal Grille

Artist: Mooch
P: 1998
This album marked a change to more sequenced compositions from the band, and featured the electric guitar of Pete Wyer. The music of Mooch fits the SF scenario perfectly, with its washes of spacey keyboards that sometimes touch on the planet Tangerine Dream and then float away to ambient beaches where traces of tribal dance can be heard. On the track "Acid Drenched Symphony" the guitar soars with the spacey effects that constantly ebb and flow at you through your speakers. At just 20 minutes this track is a masterpiece.

Mooch - Postvorta

Artist: Mooch
P: 1994

'Extended Life' begins with what sounds like an out of tune radio full of bleeps and static before calming down to pulsing echoing tones. A high hat and bass drum rhythm start up. There's all sorts of weirdness going on in the background giving it something of a fevered dream feeling. Nearer the end some gentle guitar licks add a little detail. The title track uses looped ethnic percussion and bells to set the scene before rhythmic space guitar, a good bass line and steady drumbeat whip up quite a groove. There's a touch of Ash Ra Tempel about it all from around the 'Seven Up' period. Real freaked out stuff. Things momentarily subside to gentle percussion until strange vocals can be heard rising and falling then the psychedelic montage of guitars and electronics return. Another break for weirdness which becomes increasingly 'spaced out'; electronics, flute and more ethnic percussion combining to conjure sounds from some ancient Buddhist temple. What a wonderful contrast to earlier in the track. Running water and a rapid looped dulcimer type sound, effectively forming a sequence, initially acts as the backbone for 'Winged Beings'. A slow melody unwinds as the dulcimer subsides. It's all rather tranquil but also moody. The dulcimer sequence returns once more to finish. An infectious head nodding rhythm strikes up for 'Biomass Transputer'. Some sort of processed wind instrument wails over the top whilst snatches of ethnic sampled chatter come and go underneath. We finish this disc with the over twenty minute 'Human Euyyueh'. Chimes ring out then very gradually cosmic twitters arrive, a bass beat and all manner of additional syncopation upping the pace. Little echoing guitar licks add a real tripped out feel as does some unintelligible, faintly Eastern sounding vocal colouring. It's sort of like early Hawkwind meets Manuel Gottsching, or even 'Inside' type Eloy but without the vocals. The chimes return in the eighteenth minute and take us to the end.

Motionmania - Human

Artists: Motionmania
P: 1994

The second CD by Motionmania is also a release full of sequences, melodies and synthesizer textures at its best. After quitting the first steps on the debut CD, they found their own style, which is very gentle and catchy. This release is highly recommanded.

N:Force - Realtime Illusion

Artist: Norman Friedenberger
P: 19
97
Here we have Norman Friedenberger again, this time under the guise of N:Force (alter-ego’s of one type or another seem to becoming popular!) The reasoning here is that N:Force is the vehicle for more uptempo excursions, bordering on dance territory. ‘An Afternoon on CyberBeach’ opens with a mid paced beat, busy sequencing and subtle motifs which are pitched at just about the right level. It’s an encouraging start which is reinforced by ‘Destination SpaceVault’. The track opens with a countdown, followed by NASA samples which overlay a drifting section with a quirky motif which after a few listens really gets into your head. Soon uptempo dance rhythms take centre stage, ably supported by silken pads and bass sequences. ‘SunSeeker’s Dream’ pumps up the jam with “hip” electronic pulsations. Themes are kept to a minimum leaving the beat to dominate. ‘OverStimulated’ is a short but entertaining outing with more power-house rhythms and blistering detail. ‘Elaborate Temptation’ is more of a chugger with piano themes and excellent syncopating synths. ‘Stranger in a Strange Land’ serves up more busy sequencing and rhythmics, while ‘Riding the Nautilus’ maintains the pace with enthusiastic bass beat and plenty of detailed electronics and motifs. ‘Interference 19’ is a bright and well constructed piece of uptempo synth work with strong melodies and a well chosen set of voices, and the elements are further developed on ‘Ethereal’ and ‘The Abyss of Evanescence’ which both ooze confidence and sophistication. ‘Private Atlantis’ brings the album to a close in epic fashion with just over 3 minutes of top notch noises and ethereal synth chords. Initially this album impressed but somehow it washed over me. Closer scrutiny has unearthed its true potential and not many who buy this will be disappointed.

Nautilus - Rising Balloon

Artist: Nautilus
P: 1998
After the compulsory but finely crafted atmospheric opening minute it is straight into a slow sequence that wouldn’t have been out of place on a Rolf Trostel album. In the background are samples of radio broadcasts (appropriately for a track called ‘AirWaves’) that seem to be about nuclear tests. The title track is littered with melancholy melodies over a chugging sequence low in the mix. The guitar line during the last three minutes is particularly effective. ‘Playballs’ begins with a sequence that brings up images of light being broken up into rainbow colours as it illuminates a small woodland waterfall. The image slowly evolves and builds until the original delicate sequence is joined by one of the more robust variety. ‘The Mystery Jungle’ makes more use of samples but is mainly a very melodic number both in the sequences themselves and the lead lines. It is all change at the half way mark as insect sounds and strange noises dominate, we have now entered the jungle and things continue this way until a minute from the end when it is back to melody and sequence.
More Jungle type noises start ‘Prayers of the Wind’, the rhythm then takes over with the sounds of the said wind blowing over the top and vocal samples occupying the middle ground. The rhythm builds still further and a flute mimics the previous vocal line. The samples return with new vigour as do the drums and continue to the end. ‘Hypnotic Balloons’ makes use of a tubular bell sounding sequence but this changes through a multitude of mutations to something that sounds altogether more synthetic. The track basically consists of this “hypnotic” sequence gradually changing right until the end. ‘The River’ is a delightful melodic piece, simple but beautiful. The melodies are just gorgeous. Easily the best track on the album.
Mesmerizing tabla rhythms and suitably Eastern samples provide the backbone to another hypnotic number ‘Flying Home in Trance’.

Nick Franks + Tim Wheater - Babel

Artist: Nick Franks + Tim Wheater
P: 1993

Wheater and Nick Franks, the English multikeyboard wizard whose debut was an adventurous interpretation of Joseph Conrad's psychological swashbuckler Lord Jim, have teamed up to create Babel, a musical fantasia that sails you straight over the top of the rainbow and into hyperspace. What strange and wonderously exotic worlds they have discovered. Synthesizers that talk in tongues. Vibrant kaleidoscopic rainbows of melody. Cauldrons of pyrotechnic guitar alchemy. And flute solos that are romantically pastoral one minute and elfishly playful the next.

Nik Tyndall - Lagoon

Artist: Nik Tyndall
P: 1990
Lagoon was German ambient composer Nik Tyndall's first (and only) release on the Hearts of Space label in 1990. Tyndall was originally a designer of sound units and amplifiers in the 1970s, and soon after delved into composing for electronic instruments. He released several ambient albums on the German label Sky during the 1980's. Like Tyndall's other works, Lagoon is rich with layers of organic sound that evoke water, windchimes, gongs, and gamelan to create the sensation of a floating paradise. The seven tracks flow smoothly into one another, creating a soothing tropical paradise.
