Craig Padilla & Skip Murphy - Analog destination (MP3)

Price: €9,90




The music was recorded with numerous analog synthesizers and sequencers and so we thought we'd point that out to everybody by titling the album "ANALOG DESTINATION".
(And, of course, we tried to use every synthesizer we own!)

This album is a scorcher with our "Northern California-School Style"! The energetic sequencer patterns take center stage with energizing melody lines soaring high overhead in a rich field of live electronic sound!

The CD has been mastered directly from the original 24-bit files by Bruce Turgon, former bassist for the band Foreigner.
(Craig & Skip)

"Analog Destination" is a well found title. Not only does it reflects the music by the two Americans Craig Padilla and Skip Murphy but for the biggest part on the album the duo also uses "real" analog electronic music instruments. Well, not everything is analog, they also use digital sounds, but the overall atmosphere on "Analog Destination", as was the fact with their previous album, the outstanding "Phantasma", is a really seventies approach.
Sequences form an important ingredient on "Analog Destination". This combined with nice melodies, some great solos and a fine spacey atmosphere, move the music in almost a symphonic direction. Spacerock at its best, so to say.
The title track, with which the album opens, is clearly a great example of this. It has a lot of energy, with thrusting sequences and rhythms as well as fine soloing by the duo. The last piece "Quantum Swirl" has almost the same spacey atmosphere. It contains the best sequence on the CD. One that almost reflects to Tangerine Dream many moons ago. Not all the music on the album is "new". "Live Illusions" is a live version of the track "Illusions" from "Phantasma".
The other three tracks are also live but recorded in the studio. This leaves the two gentlemen to improvise a lot, which they are very well in. For people who are looking for the ultimate mixture between retro and space music, "Analog Destination" might well be the answer.
