Demo Tracks and Info

The Garden

This superb creation is an exciting mixture of electronic music sounds and styles that has its roots firmly in the “melodic new age” style of instrumental music, with strong hints of romanticism and no shortage of great tunes. However, where Geigertek really succeeds is in creating his own unique style and sound based on solid musical arrangements, some great solos, both synth and piano, and some inventive sequencing. There is also an unusually strong variation of moods here that really works well. From the mystical tones of the opening track “The Garden” through various sonic journeys that incorporate both strident and laid back rhythms, through the classical excursion on “The Sculpture and the Wall”, the gentle melody of “Songbird bathing in Blue” to the stunningly atmospheric “View from a White Room”, this is a superb album of well crafted, heartfelt instrumental music that although walking the line of melodic new age, never crosses into the sugary sweet. The Garden is sure to find favour with those who emotive and melodic em and is a welcome addition the AD Music catalogue.

This album is available to download or as a duplicated CD on a slimline tray. Check out our FAQ page for more information.

    One of 4 great new artists discovered by AD Music is Neil Fellowes who records his electronic soundscapes under the pseudonym Geigertek. The debut album “The Garden” derives its inspiration from the traditional electronics of Jean Michel Jarre, Kraftwork and Mike Oldfield and the more pop orientated music of Ultravox, Enigma, John Foxx, Gary Numan and Isao Tomita. The album opens with the title track and the impressive piano and synths are indeed reminiscent of early John Foxx instrumental ballads. “Secrets of The Ivy” has a very spacey beginning and develops into a great track with an irresistible sound and a great melody. The same is true of “The Day it Rained” with its eastern influences and another very catchy melody.

    The rest of the album is equally as involving, mostly the melody lines are played on piano with additional synth effects and all are well structured with nice rhythms. This has the effect of making each single track a small works of art. There is a certain resemblance to Andy Pickford at times and that is very clear on the concluding track “The Dreams of future Past”. But this is an original and very interesting debut and I am very excited to hear what the next Geigertek album will bring.
