PERGE: Dyad Sessions (2012)

“You loved Dyad? Well, you're gonna devoured the 45 minutes of this Dyad Sessions”
1 Dyad 78-87-77 17:57
2 Falknis (Version Reve) 9:11
3 Madrisahorn 17:13

 Perge Music | (CD & DDL 44:21) ****
(Tangerine Dream's Berlin School style)

The universe of lively sequences which spin in all directions (remember Encore?) and weave unsuspected rhythmic structures always fascinated me and it's doubtless the main reason that explains my bewitchment for the music of Perge. True that the English duet does more than of being inspired from the works of Tangerine Dream; he walks downright on the footsteps of this inspiration as shown by his excellent Dyad. And you have loved it? There is more. “Dyad Sessions” presents two unreleased tracks, as well as a version of ''Falknis'' extended of a morphic intro, which breathe of this energy, this eclectic electricity which emanated from this surprising concert lost in the electronic galaxy. A concert which raised as much passion as enthusiasm among the fans of the Dream and now those of Perge.
A vocoder recites a robotics prayer while that the twisted reverberations of a synth are lighting the psychotronic ambiences of "Dyad 78-87-77". The intro is morphic and fed by these reverberations which release more melodic synth lines. Multi sonic lines which hum and blow their harmonies as much lyrical, with tones of foggy flutes, than somber with glaucous exhalations. Absent, the rhythm is breathing through fine pulsations until the arrival of some wriggling sequence which pound nervously, entailing "Dyad 78-87-77" in a rhythmic cascade which rises and comes down furiously as in Cherokee Lane. Molded in the jumping keys and in the harmonies of this classic nestling on Encore, "Dyad 78-87-77" could very well be a reinterpretation of this track played in another galaxy by the copies of Tangerine Dream who just survive in a parallel universe. Wasn't the spirit of Dyad? At this level we can't be closer of this ambiguous reality. "Madrisahorn" brings us in the borders that Tangerine Dream had weeded with White Eagle. The intro shines with the hammered sparkles in Mojave Plan which resound in the breaths of dying sheet steels. The correlation with the works of the Dream bursts out even more with these sequences which skip fervently under the delicate harmonies of a synth and of its chords sparkling in the blue mist. The bubbling of sequences shapes a motionless tempo which is lulled by these metallic pads of a synth which leads "Madrisahorn" towards an ambiospherical phase where everything lives in suspension and where the rhythm tortures these ambiences which eventually are taming it. It's in a narration and synth layers in the very Vangelish aromas that ends this mini LP (? not bad for 45 minutes) of Perge who confirms his intention to continue to explore all of the experiences that Tangerine Dream did in its electronic lands.
