Manna jamma 9. At-one-ment Fittravisan Cirkus Impala Posted by Si1ver at AM 2 comments:. Although on their debut album Art Zoyd already incorporated a lot of original elements in their sound that pointed at future developments, it is clear that they were heavily influenced by fellow Frenchmen Magma. Sometimes the group sounds so much like Magma here that it led some people to refer to Symphonie as a Zeuhl record. Wild, pointy passages are alternated by quiet ones and the interplay between the strings and wind instruments is outstanding.
The lively piano and bass playing is of exceptional quality as well, and the latter will certainly please Magma fans. Both the rhythms and melodies are compelling and the dissonance sounds very natural overall. All this makes it a worthwhile purchase for all people who like challenging music! Masques 3. Les Fourmis 5. Posted by Si1ver at AM 1 comment:. Crisis 2. Corpus 4. The album was scheduled for release in the UK on February 2, , and included three additional tracks.
As listed in the album's liner notes:This is the first album since featuring James Taylor's touring band all in one setting for the entire album. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article needs additional citations for verification. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. On any of the first five tracks: Groop, Oyster Jungle, Bellahoy, Conference at the Bird Mountain , and Way Back in , the music is alternatively soft and aggressive, yet, consistently mesmerizing, retaining a subtle intensity throughout.
The variations of mood and energy within each of these compositions make for a constantly compelling listen. The outfit's core members, Robin and Karsten, are usually at the helm, creating a collage of loose, slippery leads, which intertwine with dynamic background textures, all being completely structured and excellently executed. The fat, quite heavy and intensive riffs of guitar or bass along with the parts of drums form the framework that solos of guitar, saxophones, synthesizer, piano, and mallet percussion weave their intricate, yet, always integral and beautiful web around.
In other words, although the fixed basic arrangements make the compositions sound rhythmically pronounced, all the soloing lines are different, and there are many changes of theme and tempo in addition, all of which keeps the music both progressively interesting and immediately enthralling. The use of a MiniMoog as the main keyboards provides a distinct style to the overall sound, which as always is complex and constructed in such a way that the tangents always make complete musical sense.
Three different singers provide the wordless vocals, but many of the songs are completely instrumental, and when the voices are used it is always for an effect? It is relaxing, it is interesting, it is melodic and can be challenging, yet as with all of Robin's releases one is all the richer for having heard it. Yet another great release to add to his canon. Robin, as always, is at the very centre, providing whatever musical textures and nuances that are required, working as the conductor and organiser to ensure that everything is focussed and finessed to perfection.
With as much in common with jazz thinking as it does with progressive rock, Robin continues to operate at a very high level indeed, creating music that is thought provoking and intense while staying accessible and dynamic. As with all his releases, this won't be for everyone, but those who appreciate this type of music will find a great deal here to enjoy.
It is an extremely cohesive album, with some wonderful clarinet solos and great interaction with the sax. One of the huge strengths of Taylor is that he brings together musicians and instruments in a way that totally makes sense. With over 25 years of photographic experience, Hasselblad Ambassador Karl Taylor is commissioned by leading global companies for his precise attention to detail and exquisite control of light.

For almost a year, self-taught photojournalist Sven Baum has been documenting the life of his first newborn daughter, Romy. Steering away from posed, stiff baby portraits, Sven uses the X1D, various XCD lenses, and the XV Adapter with Carl Zeiss Planar 80mm and Distagon 50mm lenses and a 21mm extension tube to capture cinematically cut and color graded imagery that tells an honest story about growing.
