Bernard Reeb, aka espaces sonores, is one of the most passionate and inspiring artists I've ever known. Here in his second BDR release, that fire and attention to narrative shines through with an enormously detailed and complex exploration of analog synthesis.
Almost the entire record is composed of recordings from a Waldorf Pulse 2 synthesizer. It was once mentioned to him that one cannot make ambient music with a monophonic instrument and, as demonstrated here, it's entirely about the creator and his or her imagination, not any sort of limitation of the equipment used.
The quote from Aristotle on the cover image translates to:
"The elements must not only be placed in a certain order but also have a duration which is not the result of chance"
There are many carefully constructed narratives within these recordings and each listen provides more opportunities for discovery and meaning. A stellar follow-up to his not to be missed BDR debut, Aleatori.
