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.
