BART HAWKINS: 21 Pulse Eclipse (2019)

Hmm ... How to say! Here's an album that is not easy to tame and was initiated during the complete solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 in Oregon. Between abstract music and a very progressive New Age, Bart Hawkins' music travels between two extremes without making any compromises. 21 PULSE ECLPSE is an...

Humm…Comment dire! Voici un album qui n'est pas facile à apprivoiser et qui a été initié lors de l'éclipse solaire complète du 21 Août 2017 en Oregon. Entre la musique abstraite et un New Age très progressif, la musique de Bart Hawkins voyage entre deux extrêmes sans faire aucun compromis. 21 PULSE ECLPSE est une...

TANGERINE DREAM: The Sessions IV

Honestly, the bar was high after The Sessions iii. And that's why I wonder about these recordings that they put on CD. Is this one an essential? Not for me. Is it good? I don't believe so! THE SESSIONS IV shows...

Honnêtement, la barre était haute après The Sessions iii. Et c'est pourquoi je me questionne sur ces enregistrements que l'on met sur CD. Est-ce essentiel? Pas pour moi. Est-ce bon? Je ne crois pas! THE SESSIONS IV démontre...

TANGERINE DREAM: Green Desert (73-86)

What stories and anecdotes around GREEN DESERT's release in 1986! Something to feed those long debates around Tangerine Dream's history and legends. According to nebulous bites of stories, this album was due to come instead of Phaedra in 1973. Moreover, the recordings would have been made in August 1973. For some obscure reasons, some speak about the musical contexts whereas Virgin would have wished a more commercial sonority than Ohr Music space rock of 70's, the recordings would have been lost and it was Phaedra that came out instead. More than 12 years later, these recordings reappear on Zomba Music. And even there, fans and music historians are skeptics concerning GREEN DESERT...


Que d'histoires et d'anecdotes sur la sortie de GREEN DESERT en 1986! De quoi alimenter ces longs débats autour de l'histoire et les légendes de Tangerine Dream. Selon des nébuleux bouts d'histoires, GREEN DESERT était censé voir le jour à la place de Phaedra en 1973. D'ailleurs, les enregistrements se seraient réalisés en août 1973. Pour des raisons obscures, certains parlent des contextes musicaux alors que Virgin aurait souhaité une sonorité plus commerciale que le space rock d'Ohr Music, les enregistrements se sauraient perdus et c'est Phaedra qui est sorti plutôt que GREEN DESERT...

SYNTH&SEQUENCES is moving

Dear readers and followers, I want to thank you warmly for this massive support of you in the evolution of my Blog Synth & Sequences. Unfortunatly, du to the fact that it has a lot of stuff and a long list of artist whose music is reviewed here, I have to move this Blog to a more convivial way to read it and to find reviews. So it's the main cause of why this Blog is switching for a real website.

Now SynthSequences will need a new way to search from you, but you will see the differences between it and this Blog Please take to time to dig it will continue to read here. But you will remark that reviews will diseapper and reappear on the new website. Allready, more than 235 reviews have been removed and put on my new website.

I hate to do this, but this site cost me an average of 500$ a year. This is the reason you see the Donate sign. It's not an obligation for anyone, and it will be remove once this amount is reached each year.

Thanks and advance and long live to Electronic Music :D
