Michael Stearns - Morning jewel (FLAC)

Price: €9,90

For many years, the early recordings of Michael Stearns were very sought after. Now, in a fruitful collaboration with Groove Unlimited, the grand master of ambient and spacemusic offers a renewed "encounter" with his old days in a remastered form.
After "Ancient Leaves", "Floating Whispers", "Lyra" and "Plunge" this is the fifth remaster. The sixth is "M'Ocean".

"Morning Jewel" is a recording from 1979. In this period, Michael created his first musical excursions on the impressive "Serge Modular Analogue Synthesizer", owned by his musical colleague and friend Kevin Braheny. In his later albums, the use of the "Mighty Serge" became somewhat of Michael's trademark.

There are two pieces on the album. The opening track "Morning" was the first ever piece in which Michael used the Serge. It's floating and sparkling sounds flow perfectly together with the ambient recordings Michael assembled in the desert around Tucson, Arizona (USA) and in the seaside jungle village of Yelapa, Jalisco (Mexico). During this time Michael also started his world travels, armed with a portable recorder.
On the second piece "Jewel" Michael used the "Eikosany", a set of micro tonally tuned bars. This, together with the beautiful vocals of Marsha Lee, leads to a very intense atmosphere.
Michael Stearns is one of the biggest names in contemporary electronic music. This early music already shows why.
