Lovely soft shimmering pads mix with cosmic effects at the beginning of the appropriately titled 'Space Cruise'. It isn't long however before the first tinkling sequence emerges coming and going as it ebbs and flows in the mix. Another more substantial sequence comes to the surface in the fourth minute, mutating beautifully as it goes.

The obvious comparison would be with mid to late 70s Klaus Schulze both in sequence, as it progresses through various transitions, as well as the underlying palette of sounds. Anyone into 'Mirage' in particular should check this out. I wouldn't have thought it possible but 'Ancestral...

Bountiful cosmic effects get the opener 'Follow The Light' to a rather moody but also very beautiful start. A sequence starts up, just on the edge of hearing. Bright metallic pads, with a hint of melody, make an entrance. The sequence slowly rises through the mix eventually settling in the middle as more whooshing effects and exciting sonic flashes fly this way and that. The sequence now seems to have gained a little extra oomph, fighting to become the major feature. The wonderful backing collage of sounds respond, some nice soft textures also joining the fray. Spooky wails and faint...

We begin with the title track and straight off one person comes to mind- Klaus Schulze from his 'Mirage' period. A high register crystalline tinkling sequence sparkles and slowly mutates from one similar pattern to the next over lovely soft cosmic drones. More melodic pads are layered over the top from time to time acting like slow lead lines. In the eleventh minute the sequence fades completely away and we are left in a wonderful state of atmospheric drift, the sounds chosen being exquisite.

In the twentieth minute things take a darker turn and close on the heals of this change...

Originally released on CD on the SFM label this seminal Ken Martin album is reissued exclusively on MusicZeit with the bonus track Neurophasing.

Twittering cosmic effects get the half hour 'Through the Vortex of Liquid Lights' underway. We float on soft pads but this is a sector of space also full of electronic shimmers and other power sources. These embellishments are fascinating without detracting from a predominantly tranquil feeling. In the seventh minute a sequence gradually emerges slowly seeping into the soul rather than blasting forth. The main elements are now in palace for the rest of this long blissed out...

More Info

Ken Martin has been composing & playing electronic music for 46 years. He's developed his own unique blend of Berlin school & space music that hearkens back to the golden age of instrumental synth music. I like to emulate the Berlin sound by using my own ideas as well as still keeping some of the traditional flavour of the masters.
Good listening.
It has been some time now since I was on the music scene due to work commitments.
I get many people asking me when will we get some more music from you, my answer is very soon.
I plan to upload some more archive material from the seventies which has been cleaned and remastered, some were too bad to salvage from tapes which is a shame.
I also will be releasing new music on CD if I can find a Label that would do this for my music old and new.
The CD's which were distributed by SFM are the only one's which are available other than websites which are illegally copying and selling as originals.
