4 stars SEQUENTIA LEGENDA... Laurent SCHIEBER .

"Experimental" or the path of perseverance and hope: a long melody, a long electronic crescendo to help you take off, to find in which musical sound space you are going, in which ethereal land you are going to engulf yourself; a long process to "take the time as when we had time! , a long river of emotion, of feeling that you incorporate yourself; the addition of Tommy BETZLER on percussion is really felt from 12'03 ''; from there you are plugged into the gravitational wave that goes towards Alpha Centauri or Moondawn, these pads that give intensity to New Age sounds; changes in sound intensity keep you awake enough not to drift off into cosmic space; a title that can serve as a musical cover during relaxation sessions in view of the smooth evolution and the celestial 'voices' coming out of the sequencers; ideal for a musical daydream.

"Float Among The Stars" or musical and mental elevation for the shortest title. Perhaps the most accessible to quickly immerse yourself in the sonic musical maelstrom; the modular Moog helped by the Solina leaves more in introspection than in the journey, initiated at the beginning by a twilight rise, amplified in its second part by a sound codified on angelic and Gregorian voices allowing you to stay high, very close to the stars and far from the gloom of the surrounding world.

"Beyond From the Beyond" retouched, remixed, reworked, recalibrated, a brief title that moves from its first notes; softness, gravity, silence, atmospheric emptiness, wisdom and beauty of the world seen from above, near the beyond. A title full of finesse, all in repetition. The repetitive sequence seems to flow naturally, bringing the ideal atmosphere for the dreamlike journey. It is in these moments that time seems to stop, to contract, to hang on the notes; time when duration no longer exists, a true musical oxymoron, an incantation of staggering sweetness that can put you in a trance. Listen, listen, listen to this title again and again, even beyond that, you are the one who will find the words even better.

SEQUENTIA LEGENDA does not do lace; a typische sound as Peter BAUMANN would say, soaring, introspective, ethereal compositions, surely meditative; tones with a strong resemblance to certain titles of SCHULZE, of course, which allow a sound support during a reading, during a writing, during a reflection, during a relaxation of personal relaxation, here is what to what this album can best serve; it is not reductive if you understand that these titles are made personally for you, a sound singularity for each listener who can create his own musical path; it reminds me of a review of the VANGELIS album on "China" speaking of a journey of mandarins at the time of the mellotron: we have the musical base, but it is up to each of us to choose our way, our space musical dream.
