THE RETURN (Long Version)


This version differs from the original not only by its length, but also by many subtle changes in the reorchestration. Some sequences have been reworked, especially the filters. A new instrument, and not the least important one, has been used for this version, since it is the emblematic Korg modular: the PS-3300 in its emulated version.

A melodic line has been inserted supported by a long reverb and a subtle stereophonic echo. The role of the ARP Odyssey has been revised. For this occasion, a new sequence appearing at minute 18:35 has been specially created with the Minimoog, as well as a second, deeper loop that joins and reinforces the first. The rhythmic part has been totally revisited. The track has also been remastered.

THE RETURN takes on a whole new dimension, it's the longest track in my entire discography.
This composition is dedicated to Till Kopper.

Deep Sequences [Grenzwellen Version]


It was a pleasure to take part in the Grenzwellen 8 compilation. I can invite you to go to the page: grenzwellen.bandcamp.com/album/grenzwellen-acht to see all the musicians who took part in this beautiful
project of Ecki Stieg.

The composition was reworked with a slightly longer duration than the original. Note the integration of an additional sequence and also effects of the mythical EMS Synthi A. The intro and finale have been reworked. The mix has also been reworked by adding some reverb and delay and adjusting the spatiality. The mastering is slightly different from the original version.

CIRCUMNAVIGATION [Study Version]


Here is a study version, a collector's version, a sign of Hope and Love in this period of confinement.
This track will be the basis for a collaborative title with Hélène Vogelsinger.

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!

Valentins Traum Exclusive Version


 A free composition in homage to my son Valentin, who has autism. Because I am happy to see my son again tonight, because Valentine's Day is not so far away, because I want to share with you all the happiness I have to live with my two sons, despite the adversity of a programmed life ordeal. This is my message of Love and Hope that I am distilling musically.

Enjoy this musical and emotional sharing. This track is free, I specify it, nevertheless if one or the other wishes to pay money then I commit myself to give the whole amount to a foundation for autism. Thank you in advance for him, for all those affected by the handicap.

From a technical point of view, this track from the album RENAISSANCE, has been revisited for this occasion. The duration is sensibly longer than the original, with the addition of choirs from the Mellotron and with a special finale. Some frequencies of the modular Moog sequencer have been reworked. A subtle reverb has been added to the percussion. The whole composition has been remixed and remastered.

I wish you a beautiful sound immersion in Valentin's dream.

OUT OF THE SILENCE [Exclusive Version] by Sequentia Legenda


«I am pleased to give you the opportunity to listen to the current version of the track.

You may find that several listens are necessary to get all the diversity and the subtleties of it.
I wanted the atmosphere to be mystical without being too overwhelming, where a smooth development would allow unveiling of all the different sides of Out of the Silence throughout the nine minutes of the piece. The pads are made of minimalist chords. These are backed first by a modular Moog providing a sequential base with three sonic layers, then by the introduction of slowly progressing percussive elements. Transpositions are made with +3 and +5 half-tones in the closing section. The three choir layers complement each other, while at the same time staying in the background in the overall atmosphere.

Here is in a few lines my process of the development of Out of the Silence.»

VIBRATIONS [Blood Moon Exclusive Version] by Sequentia Legenda


«Most space music is made of three components: synth pads, sequencer loops and solos (which can sometimes be too flashy and protruding). Sequentia Legenda is intelligent and sensitive enough to create his instrumental music with a perfect blend of the first two components only: pads and loops. In his spacey compositions, where light meets minimalism, and fitted to dream and meditation, there is no room for flashy solo, no room for protruding showing-off. Instead the space is filled with highly sophisticated perpetually changing pads and ever-evolving patterns of loops, creating a complex structure of sound.»
