Like a crazed rat caught in a labyrinth, there I no possible escape, move forward at your peril or retreat into doom. All along the victorious bass keeps the acceleration gasping for air.
Croizy then audaciously administers some synthesized fantasy, the bass burping along like some doped-up nurse, raising the angst to improbable levels of tension. Somber piano and grave flute combine to further the despondence.
Pan is the Greek god of the shepherds and flocks, nature of mountain wilds, hunting and pastoral music, and companion of the nymphs, so its presence here is self- evident within the context of the song. Eventually, the arrangement is guided into a more symphonic complexion, the guitar and the bass getting very technical, the drums highly syncopated and poly-rhythmic.
The piano returns majestically, with profound seriousness until they all explode on their instruments, Samuel in particular getting nasty on his 4 stringed monster.
Just tremendous talent on display here, this is music you can enjoy as a whole or in part, following each instrument individually. Darn, I love that many options.
The brief 5 minute finale is a wordplay on the "21st circle" instead of century hmm, never thought of that but in fact, just a mellotron-infested ditty with great intensity and a strange growling slash that devilish bass and effects , David delivering a supersonic acoustic foray that would make Andres Segovia proud and Maullet pounding his heart out.
The King Crimson influences are loving and overt but that jazzy craziness is just to expunge over. Tremendous listening experience. Gorgeous artwork. A classic. Review by apps79 Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator. All five long tracks are highlighted by an obscure atmosphere with complex breaks,acoustic passages and heavy bass lines.
The drumming is often very complex certainly following a jazzy mood and synths appear from nowhere to create some more mysterious soundscapes. When the whole band jams together,the interplays are adventurous,abstract and even hard to follow,but the overall atmosphere is quite unique. Another positive: Melody is not totally absent,a few atmospheric passages hold some interest regarding this part,even some lovely flutes pop up somewhere.
For me it's a very strong first step that deserves 3. All four compositions are instrumental and it doesn't get any better than the almost twenty minute opener Liber Nonacris. The band play brilliantly, Benjamin Croizy's keyboards used much of the time though he has his moments in the limelight to provide sweeping backdrops for Samuel Maurin's fluent, liquid bass playing and Philippe Maullet's dynamic drumming. The lead is taken in the main by David Maurin's busy acoustic guitar playing; yes no electric guitar here.
He really is a fantastic player. The album alternates between sublime beauty and moments of musical tension and explosive power to make for an overall captivating sound. The production is excellent with lots of space in the mix, each player having ample opportunity to shine. I haven't discussed individual tracks as this is an album to listen and to take in as whole and some of the best instrumental music I have heard in years. The only question is whether it's better than their debut, Reification.
Buy them both and make up your own mind. Brilliant stuff, nothing less than 5 stars will do! Review by Mellotron Storm Prog Reviewer. I hesitate to describe each song as I usually do because there is so much going on and the songs are never standing still but constantly evolving. Again dark and atmospheric describes their sound well with the acoustic guitar being ever-present.
It sounds like mellotron 2 minutes in with synths to follow. I like when it kicks in fairly heavily after 11 minutes as bass throbs and mellotron storms in while drums pound. Great section. The calm sections are just as good though. Floods of mellotron after 16 minutes. Syrinx in popular culture The Canadian rock band Rush wrote "The Temples of Syrinx", part of their twenty-minute epic track, The name is ironic because the Priests of the Temples in the dystopian society depicted in the lyrics are opposed to music and advocate the destruction of musical instruments.
In the song "" by Clutch, The Temple of Syrinx is said to be having the bake sale of the year. That song is wack syrinx , now what the hell is that?Suite 18 Longueville Road Lane Cove NSW - Telephone: (02)
