This CD was recorded at the Teatro Caupolican on 16 May 2014 on the last night of the 'Best Sounds' Latin American tour in Santiago Chile. Distributed free to Web Fan Club Members for Christmas 2014.
Limited Edition Christmas Album. This album is a compilation of all Marillion's past Christmas songs originally included on various fan club releases over the years. This album also includes a brand new version of 'Happy Christmas (War is Over)' recorded especially for Christmas 2014.
After a first album, Harmonic Ascendant, where the ambient and atmospheric structures were moulding to a deep romanticism, Robert Schroeder undertakes a first musical change of direction by offering a 2nd album filled of a very great wealth in eclectic tones. Here, no romantic guitars that flirt with a solitary cello or vocoders which roam in a cosmic mist, Floating Music (whose title has nothing to do with its musical structure) is an album where the rhythm at once funky and sensual thrones among suave cosmic flights. A first change of course from an artist whose versatility will be the cornerstone of his musical charms.
Robert Schroeder is a talented and inspired german electronic composer whose career has strong connections with analogue synth sequences and spacey, spherical soundscapes produced by Klaus Schulze during the second half of the seventies. If we compared it with the best essays from K.Schulze's classic period, Harmonic Ascendant figures as a major work, pushing the cosmic synthesizer trippiness to an other level of experimentation and emotion. Harmonic Ascendant is not as majestic and as visceral than early TD and Schulze but clearly better than anything produced by these two masters after the 70's.
