GENERAL INFORMATION ===================== Album: Chronos Artist: Secret of Elements Year: 2021 Genre / Style: Electronic / New Age / Ambient / Electro DESCRIPTION ================== German composer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Johann P├ñtzold, aka Secret of Elements, is yet another artist that hears/views his music through images. And recently, he has had some startling real-life images in front of him, as he, along with battling some personal health issues traveled to the Mediterranean to save lives during the refugee crisis. All that, as well as other things in his life, are all recorded in his latest, almost epic album, Chronos. Epic, not only in the sense of the events he is trying to portray through the music here but also the music touches he employs to present them. Usually, such a musical process is an all-or-nothing thing ΓÇô you either get the epic results you are looking for, or you fall flat with your face in some very thick mud. No ifs or buts. And actually, P├ñtzold doesnΓÇÖt need either, because he fully redeems himself with some music that is at the same time both grandiose, intricate, and intimate at the same time. ΓÇÿGraceΓÇÖ, the opening track, with its title, might remind some of that Jeff Buckley classic, and while the music of it goes in a completely different direction it has those intricate elements Buckley was so good at in a completely different musical genre. ΓÇÿA Last WaltzΓÇÖ, the solo piano piece that follows, actually announces both the calmness and the melancholy that permeates Chronos throughout, but also shows that P├ñtzold is able to combine different musical elements, acoustic or electronic to create impressive images of what he has been through in the last ten years or so. And as those musical images are impressive on their own, so is Chronos as a complete musical journey. - https://echoesanddust.com/2021/05/secret-of-elements-chronos/ FILE INFORMATION ===================== Number of Tracks: 11 Total Duration: 57:13 Total Size: 131 MBs (including scan, m3u, and txt) Parity Archive: Yes, 7% Ripped By: NMR Files Created on: NMR Ripped With: NMR Encoded At: 320k CBR / 44.1 KHz ID3 Tags: Yes TXT Created: 18 July 2021 Tracklist ------------------------ 01) Grace 02) A last waltz 03) Memento 04) Astral 05) Nothing lost yet 06) Cassini 07) Vinculum 08) Liebe 09) Rage 10) Aurora 11) Mein Schmerz POSTING ===================== Reposting Rules: Please wait at least 48 hours before requesting additional pars or reposting.
