What separates one space/symphonic/ambient solo synth wiz disc from another? Compositions, my friend! And here, I'm happy to report that Greg Klamt has what it takes to earn notice among the legions cranking new age records out of their home studios.
Klamt's pieces are well crafted, multi-dimensional excursions into dreamily meditative atmospheres. They exhibit a fine sense of orchestration and melody without being too cute or dooming his credibility with electronic dance rhythms. Tracks such as ‘Fluxus Quo’ and ‘Verticle Horizons’ have that sense of mystery and awe that draws the listener in emotionally, making you forget that this is one guy with a computer and banks of keyboards.
No, it's a bona fide celestial symphony! Klamt reaches for depth and breadth by pushing all ends of the frequency response envelope, hitting some resonant low ends while dancing atop the arrangements on chim-y leads. Relaxing, consciousness-altering electronic music at its best.
