Poly-rhythmic sequential melodies of warm, engaging electronics propel Transmitter, an album created live-in-the-studio on vintage synthesizers and sequencers. Organic performances of 6 new tracks (and one from MantraSequent) glide through evolving epics with a classic 70s feel. Thick synthesizer textures and pulsating rhythms generate and modulate the pieces captured June 18th 2017 at WXPN’s Star’s End Radio, Philadelphia. Transmitter is a continuous, pulsating, teutonic-flavored album with hypnotizing textures and throbbing sequences. Utilizing complex layers of analog synths and shapeshifting rhythms, the transistors overlay human synaptic transmitters for an album of new electronic music designed for yesterday and tomorrow.
In the year of the 25th anniversary of Piazzolla's death, Argentinean-born violinist Tomás Cotik and Chinese- American pianist Tao Lin follow their critically acclaimed Tango Nuevo with more of Piazzollas richest and most exciting compositions. These fresh adaptations for mostly two or three musicians preserve and celebrate the Nuevo tango masters legacy.
Creating the music of tomorrow with the analog technology of yesterday. Poly-rhythmic sequential melodies of warm, emotional electronics propel MantraSequent, an album created on vintage synthesizers and sequencers. Koepper’s reputation as a skilled composer in the Berlin school shines on his 10th release influenced by early EM artists Tangerine Dream, Jean Michel Jarre, Klaus Schulze and Steve Roach. Both dynamic and atmospheric, this sequencer-driven spacemusic brings classic circuits to life via intense interlocking rhythms, thick drones, evolving pulsing meditations, deep textures and lush soundworlds. Carrying the listener through the wires and switchboards of Koepper’s sonic vision, he creates an organic, flowing interconnectivity between these nine electronic mantras.
