A genuinely intriguing collection of textures and minimal beats interfused with treated dialogue. Hugely relaxing, invokes dimensional thinking and sounds best with moving coloured lights and on headphones. Great work.
A transcendental mix of prog, electronica and that certain "MW" thing. Variation of mood, tempo and style combined with originality and genuine craftsmanship will always be a winner for me, listened once, bought immediately after.
Yet another release from JF that reminds me why I've been following his music for 40 plus years. The chemistry between JF and the indomitable Benge shows no sign of abating and the inclusion of Robin Simon, for me, brings everything full circle to the seminal "Systems of Romance". Fantastic stuff.
I cannot get enough of this type of stuff and Benge does it so well. I feel like growing a dodgy beard, wearing a Fair Isle sweater and reading an Open University book on quantum molecular filibustering.
Loved "Twenty Systems" and this is more of the same but in modular form.
I had the pleasure of visiting and photographing Benge's old studio in London a few years back and "met" some of the synths on this album. It's a genuinely great exploration of different modular sound systems and a more than worthy successor to "Twenty Systems.
A genuinely fabulous and, it would seem, well over-due debut release from ARPQuadra. Some wonderful textures and arrangements, beautiful tone and smooth production. Look forward to the next release :-)
