about

This album goes back to some of the earlier influences of x1 project including European electronica and Berlin School.

It begins with the (slightly commercial) Augen Blau, with its deeply sequenced bass and Mellotron vocals. Space Hawker and Shimmers on a Cosmic Tightrope are both old school numbers – with lashings of interwoven sequencing and rich evolving pads. Stellar Garden is a bridge to the epic (31 minute) Deep Drift in three unbroken parts. In part I (Total Vacuum) imagine sitting in a craft in deep drift where the only background sounds are the navigational jet bursts. This moves through part II (Micro-Gravity) where small changes in the craft’s gravitation introduce melodic sequencing. Then, part III (Future Glimpses) moves into a more rhythmic state offering a glimpse of our own future (or past).
