NODE (deviant records, 1995)

Like a lost Tangerine Dream album, only better. Dave Bessell, Gary Stout, Ed Buller, and Flood (who's produced U2 and Nine Inch Nails) cling tightly to their vintage keyboards and make them click, howl, sweep, and pulse with nothing less than exploratory genius. Node delivers all the trimmings of a classic electronic album circa mid-'70s, but lets it ripen for ten extra years. This 1995 release embraces the psychedelic style (right down to the rise-and-fall song structure) with youthful energy, and stays loyal to its roots by using only yesteryear's analog equipment. Furthermore (and to their credit), the album was recorded live, direct to stereo with no overdubs or additional studio trickery. It's as if they played by yesterday's rules in order to win the game (and they do). This is pure, uncut electronic music -- a welcome addition for the collectors, and a real discovery for those curious about the genre. Brush the dust off your lava lamp, put on your headphones, and go with the flow. For listeners who know this style of music well, Node is a tough act to follow. --

Auf deutsch (stark vereinfacht): Wer TD 1976 mag, der wird das lieben.

Ich kann die sehr empfehlen. Und die Platte ist nicht nur ein simples Nachspielen, sondern hat auch durchaus Sachen die TD so niemals gemacht hätte oder hat.

Node - Node 2 (DiN44 | 2014 | First pressing 1,000 copies | V2 pressing unlimited)

Synth supergroup Node return with their first new release since 1995! “Node 2” features three of the original members, maverick producer and sonic legend Flood, renowned producer and composer Ed Buller and classically trained Doctor of music Dave Bessell. The band are joined by new member, Hollywood composer Mel Wesson, who has most recently provided the soundscapes for Hans Zimmer’s run of blockbuster films. This extraordinary collective take time out from their high flying day jobs to indulge their secret passion for all things analogue. The result, “Node 2”, is the culmination of two recording sessions that took place over the last year and a half at Battery studios in London.

Featuring what is quite possibly the largest collection of vintage analogue equipment that has been assembled in a studio in recent times, this quartet drag their favoured analogue tools, crackling and bleeping into the 21st century. Staying true to their roots the band improvised everything live and recorded straight to two track. The final result is edited down from the mass of material that was recorded but is otherwise presented as it was played, without the computer tidying up or overdubbing that has become part & parcel of most contemporary recordings.

The resulting nine tracks range from the classic Berlin sequencing of Shinkansen East and West to the moody introspection of Dark Beneath The Earth. Along the way we are served up such unclassifiable treats as March Méchanique, which mixes martial rhythms with Arabic flavours and subtle sequencing, or the extraordinary No Signal which pushes sonic boundaries, mixing custom written physical modelling software with analogue microtones.

Don’t miss this increasingly rare chance to hear what these legendary machines can do in the hands of experts. Presented with an extensive accompanying booklet that contains fascinating insights into the recording sessions and working methods “Node 2” is another must have release on the DiN label.

Beide Node Alben sind sehr empfehlenswert. Wobei ich das erste Album doch noch etwas gelungener finde.

Tolles Album! Wer die Musik von TD Mitte der 70er mag sollte sich diese Platte schnellstmöglich zulegen.
Hier wird allerdings nicht kopiert sondern höchstens mal zitiert! Und das in angenehmer Art und Weise!
Node erfinden die Berliner Schule nicht neu, zeigen hier aber eine völlig eigenständige Interpretation der
"Sequenzermusik" der 70er. Macht mir einfach nur Laune den "alten" Sound in so guter Klangqualität zu hören...
Beindruckend auch das Booklet. Hier wird die Entstehungsgeschichte zu jedem Track ausführlich beschrieben...
