If Anna would have been asked what music would be like a mirror of her very soul, then she'd reply: listen to 'Morse Disco'!
from Copenhagen, Denmark, who is also a member of Rainscape and has previously been in Swimwear Catalogue.
he is performing solo, creating the most beautiful melodic and melancholic electro you are most likely ever to hear. Usually, Anna did not find much fascination in electro acts as they are mostly missing the depth, the textures, the atmosphere, the ideas, and especially melodies, and, of course, that melancholy that Anna is seeking for in music. Delayscape
is different, and unique, here suddenly it was all there and in a massiveness that lead to several emotional outbursts in Anna's office.Flemming
has rare abilities: he is such a master of sound synthesis, sequencing and he has a great imagination. His tracks are so full of the most brilliant synthesiser sounds, the most wonderful pads/strings, Roland TR--808 simulated rhythms and synthetic percussions, and all is so very organic and honest and interesting. While all tracks are instrumental pieces you shall not worry at all, you will not miss the vocals as there is too much to listen to while diving though Delayscape
's own sound universe. You will find similarities to Solvent
for sure, but Delayscape
is always even more deep and melodic, also Skanfrom, of course, then almost scientifically synthesised space sounds à la Clock DVA
and lush and dreamy tracks almost à la Raison d'être
The 2CD set is divided in two parts: CD1 is designated 'Music for Dancing at Home' featuring more upbeat tracks, and CD2 which is designated 'Music for Frozen Journeys' featuring the more downtempo, ambient and even more atmospheric tracks.
Apart from that, Flemming
is teaching us a lesson: one must not own a TR--808, Jupiter--8, Prophet--5 or Solina String--Ensemble to produce amazing synthetic sounds and electronic music - it is not the machines but talent, interest and imagination that actually lead to extraordinary creations and results. Same was tried to being achieved with the artwork - many many hours were spent to adapt it to the music and finally it was so worth it, 'Morse Disco' does surely have one of the most conceptual and beautiful artworks so far, and following the organic feel it was eventually printed on ecological recycled paper.
All tracks were originally recorded between 2002 and 2007 and, apart from four previously unreleased tracks, released by the net labels Acrylik, Cold Room Netlabel, Cluster-Flux, Monotonik and Musicartistry. Mastering was beautifully done by Stefan Bornhorst
