This is part #1 of "Building a cathedral".
Part #2 is released on GR-095.
"Building Sequential Stones, Ecclesias Cathedrales Aedificans Vol. 1" is the great title of the second album (after "Epikus") on the Groove-label by the Spanish specialist of the sequencer John Lakveet. On this album he further manages to master his style, which is an own view on retro/Berlin School.
Big percussion opens the first track on the album, "Apellatio (Call)" which soon continues with John’s by now familiar sequencer work. What sets him apart from a lot of other retro/Berlin School-artists is that he creates rather short pieces. With 9:25 minutes, "Linsolent Promenade Nocturne Des Gargouilles (The Insulent Walk Nocturne Of Gargoyles") -by the way, again a fine title, is the longest track. Sometimes the sequences are absolutely great like in "Petra Super Petram (Stone On Stone), Exudus 3:14 (Exodus 3:14)", "Columna Septentrid (North Column)", the track mentioned above with the fine title and "Tholus (Cupola)".
Then again, there are also some meditative and serene moments on the album as in "Voluta (Reflection)", "Dratio (Prayer)", "Meditatio (Meditate)" and "Obscuritas (Darkness)", all with great Mellotron sounds.
"Building Sequential Stones, Ecclesias Cathedrales Aedificans Vol. 1" is a treat for every fan of sequencer-based electronic music.
