Tangram biography
Hungarian electronic wizard Fabók Péter has been dishing out a steady stream of albums since 2005. His stage name Tangram obviously points a finger in Tangerine Dream?s general direction, and when you then start diving into this man?s, by now, vast discography ? there is indeed an emphasis on the melodically enhanced, breezy early 80s material from the original pioneers of the genre. With FB the synthesisers have had a serious overhaul though, and much of the feel and vigor now exudes an increasingly futuresque and modern sound.

His style has also changed somewhat, and currently it seems as if he is exploring a spacier and more open psychedelic approach giving him an advantage in the visuals department, where he often utilizes spectacular lighting effects to enrich the concert experience ? a thing that corresponds well with the psychedelic feel of the music (just ask folks who?ve attended a Floyd gig in downtown London 1967).

Review by Morsenator

3 stars Analogue keyboard sounds are a feature that almost never goes wrong for me: when used properly their richness and warmth outweighs easily the disadvantages in variety when compared to the cold modern digital approach. Tangram's 2012 album "Layers" features a plenty of them, mostly used in a mid-period-Tangerine Dream-fashion (as the project's name suggests). It is just too bad that the cd seems to be quite unbalanced, the first six songs being pretty similar in style and structural format (repetitive dreamy sequencers and drums and well, many layers) to the extent that they become a bit boring. Highlights of these include the wonderful "Violent Sunrise" and "Regrets Are Just the Start". A more melodic attempt is found only on track 7 "Modern Losses", a nice but quite average track. "Nocturn" is a quiet, not very memorable minimalistic piece and "Compliment of the Trees" finishes the album nicely with its opening style. "Layers" is not the most fascinating album out there to my ears but has enough content to be worth checking out. 2,5 stars rounded up to 3.
Thanks to Philippe Blache for the artist addition.
