 Notes & Reviews
 
This is an album encapsulated within are collisions of epic forces, chaotic sexuality, religious underpinnings, enlightened fragments of joy. During a brief, 3 week vacation from the recording of the soon to be released 3rd Freezepop album, Kasson Crooker (aka the duke from the synthpop trio Freezepop, also ex-Splashdown) wanted to focus on a collection of songs inspired by some of his favorite movie soundtracks. Moved by the epic nature of Vangelis (Bladerunner, Chariots of Fire) and retro/future aesthetic of Wendy Carlos (Clockwork Orange, Tron), Symbion Project created a 'baroque minimalist electro' album that could live seamlessly in 1762, 1962 or 2162. Concerned with the non-dynamic, robotic stagnancy of current electronic music, along with the overwhelming nature of being surrounded by a studio full of synthesizers and blinking audio gear, this album was crafted using only a single 32vco analog synthesizer. Very little was sequenced (except for the blazingly fast runs that Bach himself couldn't even do) and almost all the parts were played in by hand. Constant attention was given to exploiting and exaggerating the emotional tension of the songs through use of dynamics, from the initial songwriting to the final mastering (analog of course).
