Review by admireArt
4 stars "De Harmonia Universalia",1980, composed and performed by Pascal Languirand is another true example of how rich and unique the Canadian prog-electronic scene developed alongside its European counterpart.

The blend of acoustic or analog instruments (and vocals here and there) with very well thought electronic environments, in a perfect progression of music composition ideas (5), which are perfectly crafted and performed single handedly without any other purpose but perfection and I suppose a personal sense of achievement yet without condescending nor becoming egotic-obtuse or over-grandiose.

The whole project is felt conceptual and shares themes that appear to construct new passages and directions which conjure its "mystic" and cosmic atmospheres and also its closer to earth connection ("Atlantis" track 3) .

Now as far as rating this effort, I will certainly admit that even though it gets dangerously close to "sweet tinkle bells music" at some peaks and Tangerine Dream's idiom ("O Nos Omnes", track 4), it never abuses these compositional solutions and somehow detours from crossing those lines.

Altogether it offers, I repeat, a very different perspective of Progressive Electronics as opposed to its European counterparts (and schools) , the "real deal" in this sub-genre's universe.

Easy ****4.5 PA stars

Thanks to reviewer Progfan97402 for bringing this artist to my attention!
