Oresund Space Collective - Visions of... (Space Reck Productions, December 05, 2016)

I wrote properly in the last days about the LP, 'West, Space and Love II', out last July as usua via Space Rock Productions, the label started in 2009 to release fundamentally the music of the Oresund Space Collective but later extended its circle to releases of high quality llimited edition vynil and cd of bands from Denmark and finally from the entire Scandinavian region of the world. Recalled in that occasion what fundamentally were the origins of the 'kosmische music' and why this genre was actually born as a form of jam improvisation and expressionism and why it is for all these reasons something which really has to do with living collective experiences. Of course I could well comprehend that what this collective actually do and consequently their releases won't be inevitably appreciated by everyone and that in many cases their music could be considered as something difficult and in any case, that's ok, if you don't like it, just leave. What I fundamentally disagree it was when a friend of mine pretended to consider their releases as something that have probably much more to do with progressive music that to psychedelia and consequently 'kosmische music'. I considered about this of course and I would also eventually agree with him. But there's a course a point in which I disagree with him and about I retain he has no really comprehended at all the contents of the album of this Collective. Of course, there're elements of progressive music (wasn't it the same also for Tangerine Dream, Popol Vuh, Can, on the other hand), but what really count in a case also like 'Visions of...' (their 23rd release!) it's first their constant tension to the cosmos also intended in a conceptual sense, secondly the fact what they do are in practice true happenings. They make up a collective: in this case we have keyboardist/synthesist 'Dr Space' Heller in the captain’s chair alongside drummer Alex, bassist Hasse (also guitar, African drums), guitarists Mattias (also pedal steel), Jonathan (also violin, theremin and bass) and Mats (also bass, percussive acoustic), keyboardist/organist Jonas (also guitar), and keyboardist/synthesist KG; they set a a place and an improvising, playing and sometimes recording live happens. Mixed and mastered by Jonathan Segel, the recordings of 'Visions of...' came out from the same session as the 'Different Creatures' and 'Ode to a Black Hole' albums, material the group put together in October 22-24, 2014 at Black Tornado Studio. What to say about the contents of this album? Don't expect of course something 'new' respect what they've habit us, but not for this reason you must not pay attention and not listen to this record. The progressive (yes) cosmic fury of the long sessions of more than fourty minutes (?) of the title-track it would be probably enough to excite and get into an acid trip even the most quiet man in the world. Something good to reanimate the deppest part of your souls and make you feel finally comfortable, free of every kind of brainwashing and conditioning formalities of this fucking society. The second LP on the other hand (the first one, inevitably, contains the only 'Visions of...' track) it's much more different into its contents. It opens with 'Above the Corner', another long track which I would like to compare to some episodes of the early Can (what a regret in this case they haven't got a singer as Malcolm Mooney or Damo Suzuki!); 'Piece of Seven' it's a typical trip in space, that kind of track with sci-fi fascination but with a low-volume electrified guitar playing in a way like the deformed voice of Neil Young in 'Trans' and a sort of laser flashings that rages over a typical Hammond sound and a very rhythmate and groovy sound of the drums. 'Around the Corner', finally, ideologically the second part of 'Above the Corner', but with a sound that it's much more similar to the sonorities of the first part of the LP and some way a true progressive piece, ending with an accelerate of sound that shows also the great skills as musicians of this collective. What to say? It's this not 'kosmische music'? And why not? Just because it is not registered and came out in the seventies, I guess. People are sometimes (actually very often) looking back and be some way nostalgic to what they consider as an ideal past. Oresund Space Collective, they don't. They record their music necessearly in the very present time (with no post-production or similar at all, I mean), but everything they do it's done ideologically yet projected into the future. I respect the great groups of the past, I love them and I listen to their music, but 'kosmische music' it's this. If you think it does not exist at all, well, I definitely would consider that you're fucked up.

Bè...non so quanti di voi lo conoscono, spero tutti... Lui è un grandissimo chitarrista e ha fatto brani davvero spettacolari... io suono in una cover band dedicata proprio a John Mayer e studiando i suoi brani vi assicuro che non c' è nulla di scontato nelle sue composizioni :-)

Ciao a tutti, mi sono affacciato da poco su google+ e ho trovato questa bellissima pagina... anche io adoro la musica ben fatta e sono musicista (a livello amatoriale, o almeno ci provo ;D ) A presto....
