David Wright & Stephan Whitlan – The Reflecting Sky
“A stroke of genius” – Sylvain Lupari review
These two experienced musicians combine to produce an album of original music very much inspired by Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze and Vangelis. ‘The Reflecting Sky’ presents 75 minutes of diverse and original electronic music that weaves a powerful, sequencer laden spell packed with sonic delights that will have fans of traditional Berlin school em as well as fans of the two musicians and the Callisto project, in raptures.
‘The Reflecting Sky’ came from a series of improvised sessions at David Wright’s Suffolk studio between 2017 and 2019 during ‘down time’ from Code Indigo concert rehearsals. During that time the duo laid the foundations for four distinctly different tracks. It is, in many ways, a throwback to ‘Callisto’, the David Wright collaboration with Dave Massey.
It wasn’t until early 2020 and the time afforded by the Covid-19 lockdown, that they went back to the music. After 4 months of painstaking editing and arranging, the result, we think you will agree, is a fascinating blend of musical styles, a metamorphosis into something unique, albeit as previously indicated, very much in the Callisto style, prompting discussions of a revival of the Callisto project in the future.
The 11 tracks are in fact 4 long pieces, each displaying a creative and imaginative blend of sequences, rhythms and atmospherics that create a soundscape to take the listener on a mind-blowing cosmic journey.
While the duo clearly pay a passing nod to the more established luminaries of the genre, ‘The Reflecting Sky’ is an original and sophisticated slice of electronic music. It clearly reflects the musical vision and expertise of both artists at the peak of their creative prowess and clearly enjoying the collaboration.
The CD comes with an 8 page booklet; the download with a 14 page digital booklet.
