4 stars Patrick Forgas is a french composer well known for his work within the Forgas Phenoma Band. At the time he played with this band, the music was jazz-rock oriented. But with this first solo effort, the music is rather ambient-oriented with links towards Tangerine Dream and Vangelis. Apart from an obvious influence of the great "ambient" artists, this album pays also a tribute to the minimalists such as Philip Glass. Despite the minimalism influence, the sounds are varied (you can hear at times saxophone samplers, violin-like, harp-like, vibraphone-like and xylophone-like sounds, all "synthetic" because played on keyboards) and the percussion adds a jazzy feeling to the music. Overall, the music here is very smooth and it sounds like nothing else released to date. I think this is one of the most intriguing and beautiful ambient album released in years. If you want a good ambient album with discreet jazzy percussion, check out "Synchronicité" and you will be amazed by the beauty of the music Patrick Forgas composed.
