More Info

Firebird is an imaginative blend of rhythmic electronic music and cinematic electronica, with deep house, chill, rock, dance and experimental influences that is superbly produced and grabs and holds your attention from start to finish.

From the opening title track, the listener is treated to a series of memorable themes and intriguing soundscapes, either established by foot tapping sequences, infectious rhythms or deep bass and cinematic tones underpinned by searing guitar and melodic lead lines all encompassed in wonderfully original sound effects and atmospherics.

When things slow down, as with “Impossible Sky” and "Secrets of the Days", the superb use of unconventional rhythms under deep bass and occasional acoustic guitar and treated voices is mind blowing. Even the use of a sampled Eastern female vocal on “East At Least” is given a new twist with the imaginative backing and unusual rhythms. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better you’re treated to the joyously trippy “Keep off the Grass”.

The debut album 'Quantum Voodoo' was an interesting collection of diverse music, but this time round Christopher has honed his skills and wrapped his great themes up in clever rhythms, sequences and diverse sounds. But above all, by focussing the arrangements it has ensured 'Firebird’ is a mature, interesting and hugely entertaining electronic music album.
