EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 405 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 179 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Progressive Electronic, New Age, Neo-Classical | Label: Arista | # ARCD-8545 | Time: 01:03:21

The CD release of Direct includes bonus material – which fits the flow of this intense and dramatic offering – not included on the cassette or vinyl releases. Like most Vangelis, this defies categorization. It has strong elements of rock & roll, symphonic synth ambience, and new age instrumental aspects. At the same time, the bold synthesizer strokes and washes fit the Berlin school of electronica. Given Vangelis' proclivity for soundtrack work, it is no surprise that this disc sounds like great film music. It is a great CD that will appeal to many different audiences. Fans of Kitaro, Deuter, and Constance Demby will like this disc.

Label: C3R | cat. no C3R 011

A theremin controls a MIDI interface that manipulates several sound sculptures. The results must be heard to be believed – ranging from abstract atmospheres to heavy low-frequencies and driving rhythm, with nary a dull moment. Long piano strings beaten senseless by metallic strikers, water droplets falling in rhythmic patterns onto amplified percussive plates suspended above the ground… this piece does it all, including blurring the borders between the electronic and the organic

Genre: Animation

It is pouring down outside and there is not a glimmer of light in the sky. Not to worry, today it is time to immerse oneself in the aquatic world of one of my all time favourite animators Ivan Maximov and a gorgeous high definition (229mb) version of his 2007 Rain Down From Above. Visitors to the Animation Blog will be well aware of my fascination for his work. Here we are again in the same alternative universe of childhood where a girl and her puppy and three baby elephants exist happily enough until the rains come. Their home is perched high on a hill and the adults, for such there are even in Ivan's universe, leave the youngsters to get on with their chores. The elephants make hay while the sun shines though the onslaught of the deluge wreaks havoc, flooding the homes, washing away the sculptor's clay model and, calamity, sweeping the elephants and the little girl in the red dress down the hillside with a crashing waterfall ahead. No fears. The water spells fun for the other girl and her puppy on the water-driven roundabout and there's always a man with a net around when one needs one. Ivan is very sparing in his use of colour: aforementioned dress, band around the captain's hat and there's that metallic green fish we get to see. His characters are eccentric, whilst the artwork is magnificent, light and shade beautifully realised in the predominantly hand drawn work that has such clear delineation of light and shade; and always that eye for the idiosyncrasies and humour of life. Worth giving the images a click for the detail. Watch Ivan's work and the sun shines.

The band's fifth release, Rain Dances is Camel at its best, offering the most consistent and representative package in their saga. The addition of Caravan-cofounder Richard Sinclair proves profitable, as do a few colorist touches by Brian Eno on "Elke." Mel Collins' woodwinds are among the highlights, especially on "Tell Me" and the title track. From beginning to end, this project flows gracefully.
