This album gathers pieces, up till now unreleased in disc, performed
live during the festival E-Live of 2010.
E-Live is held every
autumn in the Netherlands. Together with the festival E-Day, that is held
every spring in this same country, it, is one of the festivals with more
prestige in the field of Space Music, Synth-Pop and similar genres.
The contents of the CD is as follows: 1: Nattefrost: "Near UFO"
(8:28). 2: Picture Palace Music: "Help Murder Help 2010" (6:36). 3: Mark
Jenkins: "The Ceremony of Innocence" (8:40). 4: Picture Palace Music:
"Midsummer's Morning" (5:26). 5: Airsculpture: "Exploration Drive"
(19:32). 6: Picture Palace Music: "Array of Fading Flowers" (4:39). 7:
Nattefrost: "In a Forgotten Time (deZeptive remix)" (5:32).
music of Nattefrost flows through a fresh, agile Synth-Pop trend, like
that of Picture Palace Music (the band led by Thorsten Quaeschning, Who
also is known for his work as a keyboardist in the band Tangerine Dream).
In his performance, Mark Jenkins performs "The Ceremony of Innocence"
accompanied by Alquimia (vocals), Arthur Brown (vocals), David Vorhaus
(sounds), and WB Yeats (words). Jenkins, the author of the piece, uses
synthesizers as well as iPad. This theme was recorded live during the
concert, as well as in the Unicorn Studio of London. "The Ceremony of
Innocence" is a remarkable composition, between Space Music and Classical
Music, with operatic airs. The bewitching vocals of synthesist and singer
Alquimia are noteworthy.
Airsculpture perform an impressive suite
of Space Sequencer Music, with melodies that reach deep into the soul, and
rhythms with the strength of the natural elements, all that wrapped into
dazzling atmospheres and orchestrations. It is in fact a whole experience
to listen to a sonic monument like that one live, an experience that to a
certain extent can be lived when listening to the recording of the live
performance included in this CD.
