This version is 100% remastered, using the best mastering compressors (Elephant and Waves Maserati) and the best reverbs (Lexicon). Its been long time that I want to remaster this album. The result is saved in 24 bits/96Khz quality and uploaded as such to the distribution services. The result is more consistant and soft to listen. The original sometime was not mastered at all, and some were, resulting in differences in perceived volume from one tune to another. This version is easyer on the hears. EQ also was used to fix some problems (like too much bass in Underwater). I enjoy a lot more listening the remastered version. Using both the latest technology and also orchestral instruments, with piano a la Robert Miles. I`ve decided to explore all the tools and synths I got recently in my studio. While playing I made some interesting songs. Some are based on Virtual instruments, some are using real vintage gears like Yamaha CS 30 or Roland SH2, some are mixing both of the two worlds. The idea was to stay simple and not to overproduce, I mean do not glue everything in reverb. The themes themselves are very simples, a little bit commercial. It is a decision I took, to take a breath. I`ve finished in November 2005.
As the title say, it is a short place before the main course! Just using some of my favorite instruments to create an abstract weird song.
I like this theme and also a good mix of techno sounds and classical instruments, Oboe, strings and more are showing here.
Imagine a Fashion show. Imagine this sound in background. Thats the way it was made, and the way it sounds. Great solo violin to make the break with the rather techno feeling.
This is a commercial title, very optimistic. In the middle, a symphonic orchestra comes and mixes with the vintages synths.
This title is about the war against Irak, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, all the American wars etc...
A beautiful allegorie of underwater`s world. You really feel diving in the big blue when you listen this title.
Another trip, but this time you are in the desert. The sun burns and there is sand all around you.
Another commercial song. Between Robert Miles and Equinoxe from Jean Michel Jarre. with a piano theme.
That`s a melodic song. Remaining the `Apocalypse of Animals` from Vangelis, the great music theme from the 70`s.
This song comes from the outer space. Remaining the feeling of the first twilight zone tv series. Space effects takes in on board for a space traveling.
Very long and energetic. You have to listen it VERY loud!
