Sequentia Legenda's next opus for 2021 : CELESTIAL

CELESTIAL by Sequentia Legenda

Dear listeners,

I am very pleased to announce that the work on my next opus "CELESTIAL" is progressing in a positive way, both musically and in terms of layout, giving me pleasure and satisfaction. The result corresponds to the idea that had germinated a few months earlier in my mind, it is the reflection of what I wish to communicate emotionally and artistically.
A new experience, a new sharing, that I will have the pleasure of presenting and bringing to light on September 21, 2021, the date of the album's release.

Korg PS-3300

"CELESTIAL" is a symbiosis of different mythical instruments, all of them coming from the analogue era, such as the EMS Synthi AKS, the Moog modular, the ARP Odyssey, to name but a few. It's true that at the moment I use almost only virtual instruments, but these are carefully selected to match the analogue sound grain so typical of the mid-70s. I would also like to add that it is the turn of the fabulous Korg PS 3300 modular to join the set of analogue synthesizers. This is a first. This modular offers a wide sound palette and a great harmonic density: a "big" sound. I had a lot of fun working with this remarkable and truly unique instrument. I would like to add that when I was between 18 and 20 years old, I bought the Korg PS 3200 the "little brother" of the PS 3300 modular. I would like to take this opportunity to say a BIG thank you again to my father who helped me financially. I can invite you to discover a little more about the history of the encounter between the PS 3200 and myself by reading the blog article.

Three Astral Arches by Sequentia Legenda

The first track "Three Astral Arches" is almost finished.
It is a richly pigmented sound painting with a spiritual and mystical framework and atmosphere, created with the instrumental palette of analogue synths.

With a duration of 23:23, the three parts "Yasna", "Feldi" and "Jerrish" follow one another, each delivering their own atmospheres to dress this sound painting with a mystical patina and reinforcing the resonance of the harmonic tones.

The introduction is rather confusing - I'll leave you with the surprise - it is built with effects from the AKS and ARP Odyssey mainly. The chords of the string instruments and the choirs unfold, gradually giving way to the different sequences that make up the rhythmic framework. The cymbals then reinforce the tempo. The velvety string ensembles of the famous Solina emerge in the distance to distil melodic lines here and there supported by subtle reverberation. The climax is reached with the addition of further drum elements to make way for the ethereal and spiritual finale consisting of choirs, effects, and a lulling of various crystalline sequences.

I will keep you regularly informed about the evolution of CELESTIAL and thank you for your attention.

CELESTIAL in Progress

Dear listeners,

I am pleased to announce that my new album "CELESTIAL" is in progress. A new musical adventure is beginning, with its challenges, surprises and trials.

At the moment, I'm finishing the first track "Three Astral Arches".

It's a marriage between analog and mythical instruments: the AKS, the Moog Modular, the ARP Odyssey among others. And for the first time, the fabulous Korg PS 3300 joins in. The rich instrumental palette of all these emulations helped me to colour the original atmosphere of this first sound painting. The introduction is rather surprising with sound effects from the AKS and ARP Odyssey. The three parts "Yasna", "Feldi" and "Jerrish" follow each other, each one delivering its own melodic tones that form the atmosphere of this mystical soundscape.

The album is scheduled for release in the third quarter of 2021.

It is a great pleasure for me to be able to appear
in the mix "Stillness Within Motion" by low light mixes

Stillness Within Motion Paul Asbury Seaman

Dear listeners,

I am delighted to be included in this programme with my title BEYOND FROM THE BEYOND, and to have the chance and happiness to share my own vision of the Berlin School. We all need music, hope and dreams so much.

We end the year as we began - with a mix from Paul Asbury Seaman. And a fine way to end the year it is. All of the music in this set is from 2020, making it an appropriate way to say goodbye to this tumultuous year.

Here's what Paul says about the mix:

Stillness within motion is a concept that comes from Zen Buddhism and the martial arts. It always seemed to me a good way to try to live ordinary life as well. This program is an effort to expressing that concept musically: slow sequencers mixed with Sufi-infused sax, table and harp and electric guitar. Mixing genres a little, while still within ambient sensibilities.

This composition is a current representation of my vision of the Berlin School, my language, my sensitivity. For me, music, even more so in these difficult times, gives me freedom and joy. And it is precisely this feeling of fullness that I wish to offer my listeners.

Long live music, which for me is a vector of Hope and Love!.

Music remains a vector of hope!

Music remains a vector of hope

🎨🎹 Music remains a vector of hope!

Painting sound and cosmic landscapes conducive to dreams remains one of my priorities despite my sadness that I find hard to contain in the face of this very complicated global health situation.

We artists are sensitive to our environment and our emotions are often reflected in our works.

My way of moving forward in this event remains essentially the sharing of my emotional language, of my passion.

Music remains a vector of hope!

Take care of yourself and those around you, long live music, long live love,
Schieber Laurent (Sequentia Legenda)

BEYOND THE STARS (Work in progress)

🎥 The first title "EXPERIMENTAL" (Work in progress)

 💫 BEYOND THE STARS : the progress of the first title "EXPERIMENTAL"

For me, experimentation is a long-term work, a path of perseverance and hope leading to elevation, to fulfillment. With EXPERIMENTAL, the first track of my next album BEYOND THE STARS, it is precisely a work of research and experimentation. Minutity, patience and rigour. It's an exciting and potentially time-consuming process, but it's the price to pay for a result that lives up to my expectations. I am demanding with myself, I want to offer the best for my listeners and thus continue to honour the Berlin School to the best of my ability.

At the moment, 🥁 German drummer Tommy Betzler is also working on this collaborative composition which will last 29:46.

CIRCUMNAVIGATION: The union of two artists passionate about electronic music, two sound sculptors, who have in common the love of sequences.
CIRCUMNAVIGATION: An artistic symbiosis, a cosmic journey, sound loops that deconstruct and rebuild themselves ad infinitum.

I'm starting work on my next album, BEYOND THE STARS

This is beyond the beyond...
Information about my upcoming album "BEYOND THE STARS" !


It's beyond the beyond, if I may say so... I've been involved musically and in my private life in things that are emotionally strong and that have gone a bit beyond me! Like many of you, life doesn't spare us. But thanks to the music that gives me some hope and allows me to continue my artistic adventure. Usually I announce the release date of my next album, this time I'm being careful. I would like this opus "BEYOND THE STARS" to be available on September 21, 2020. This will be a good opportunity for me to share with you again all my love and passion for the Berlin School. Nevertheless, I remain cautious and hope not to disappoint you. I am convinced that quality must be the most important thing. At the moment, and for the past few weeks already, the first track "EXPERIMENTAL" is in its launch phase and I know that Tommy Betzler will have a special place in this composition.
