Wavestar - Zenith

Artist: Wavestar
P: 1985 / 1993

Originally released on cassette in 1985. Re-released in 1993 on Surreal to Real. Ambient electronics float in a sea of actively sequenced keyboards. When these sequencer rolls are not fulfilling the music's rhythmic quotient, E-perc delivers the required energetic elements. Searing guitar injects a visceral quality, bestowing both guts and intellectualism to the music.
The melodies are carefully balanced between brooding soundscapes and explosively dynamic structures. Slowburn passages lead into more intricate waves of ascendant music.

Equipment: Digisound Modular Synth with Alphadac Computer Controller - Roland Juno 6 Polysynth - Roland TR808 Rhythm Composer - Roland VP330 Vocoder Plus - 2x Roland MC202 sequencers - Korg Sigma - Siel Orchestra - SCI Pro-one - Custom VC Phaser - Electric Mistress - Boss DE200 Delay - Boss Chorus/Flanger/Phaser - Sony TC730 (Tape Echo/Flanging) - Fostex 3070 Compressor - Vesta RVI Reverb.

This is the last copy of the original Surreal to Real label version!

Wendy Carlos - Tron

Artist: Wendy Carlos
P: 2006
We're certainly both as surprised and as happy as most of you will be. Disney just contacted us out of the blue, and informed us that they were going to release a CD of my original music soundtrack to put out in conjunction with their new DVD edition of the 1982 motion picture, TRON. They asked if we had a digital stereo CD master available. The catch was that they needed the new master, like ... yesterday!
The first thought that came into my mind was: "The sleeping giant awakes...!", a scene from some childhood story in which everyone lives happily ever after. Yet it's true, this one has a happy ending. It was VERY short notice, a good example of the old hurry up and wait (or is it vice-versa this time, something like that...?), but we were well prepared. I've mentioned several times before that we had finally made excellent surround transfers of the music master tapes, recordings which had become unplayable in the late 80's (there's a story on a previous news page). We suggested that we include some bonus tracks, music that didn't make it to the final original LP and cassette for reasons of space. Those masters had to be found and transferred, too. Liner notes ("Looking Back on Tron") had to be written. Most important, the whole thing had to be mixed to stereo and mastered with the same 20-bit Hi-D care we give our latest series of albums on East Side Digital: the best the masters can sound, short of altering them in any way artistically.
Fortunately, the sound for TRON was more recent than many of the ESD remasterings, and didn't need so much manual cleanup and massaging of tiny ticks, bumps, hums, hisses and so forth, that have become only audible on the latest audio systems. So the process went smoothly if intensely during a marathon week of whirlwind production over the Thanksgiving holiday. Hey, how could I refuse this opportunity?
This was a friendly surprise, a positive way to celebrate the holiday season at the end of a trying year on more of an up beat. All TRON enthusiasts should take note of the in store date of January 29th for the soundtrack CD's of the first CGI feature motion picture (with some notable breakthroughs in the music, too). The sound is beyond anything you've heard before: sharp and vivid, not like all those lame, overpriced pirate editions that thieves have sneaked out to fill the CD void (all faked from LP and Cassette transfers -- ick!).

Wizard Projects - Tormenting Without Hatred

Artists: Wizard Projects
P: 1990
Eric Mostert is a recent name to the ranks of EM artists. He lives in Holland. This first CD was not intended for general release but as a demonstrator disc to get him jobs providing background music for video productions and other areas where music is needed. The music has a major flaw in that it draws too heavily on sound effects versus good music structures. The overall feel of the music is seventies industrial EM. As the field of EM has diversified and developed musically it would be hard for fans of more recent EM music to be able to listen to this style of music. This is beginners' music that normally would have appeared as a cassette to fund his development. If the artist stays in the field and develops a following, this could be highly collectable. While several tracks do show some interesting musical ideas but the artist inserts sound effects in the middle that breaks the flow of the music.

Xylvanya - Variations of Life

Artists: Xylvanya
P: 1993
He released his debut in 1994 with the self-production "Variations Of Life". This CD contains 12 tracks with a total running time of approximately 63 minutes. The playing time of each track is 1:51 to 8:14 minutes. Bernd played all these pieces, without a computer, recorded in multi-track sequencer process. For this purpose he used a keyboard and a DAT recorder. In the individual pieces is recognizable among other things, the style of Mike Oldfield or Alan Parsons. Especially the occasional tempo and rhythm changes are very similar to those of Oldfield.

Zero One - Zero One

Artist: Zero One
P: 1998

Calculated adventures in electronica. Music for intellectual stimulation.
Zero ones debut album. A solid chill out album. Definitely a psy-fi mood combined with ambient and dub to fit nicely in the Beyond / Waveform camp ala Ambient Dub compilation circa 1993 or A.D. Series. After the first track it gets a little deeper with Trust, one of the better tracks on the cd. Mind Over Mind is another good one. Everything is fairly simple and mystic sounding. You need to have an affinity for early 90s chill out to get into this.
