    STRINGTRONICS

    Mindbender

    [engl] I really love to review music that does not take an entirely definable direction but switches in between related genres and sometimes even styles that are based upon each other. This album can be put in the field of so called “library music”, sound records made for use in movies and TV productions, commercials and for similar purposes to enhance the tension of the atmosphere in very dramatic scenes or accompany the more mellow and relaxed moments with lush harmony carpets. And from all these “library” albums, this is one of the most sought after by collectors around the world due to the musical quality of its content. And so we sit back, relax, close our eyes and get ready for the movie that only exists in our imagination. The STRINGTRONICS take us on a journey from the dark city gorges of any North American metropolis where steaming hot funky and jazzy rhythms amalgamate and get clothed in a veil of lush string arrangements to the banks of the river Seine where painters draw portraits of tourists and people sit in the sun and relax to the typical chanson melodies full of melancholy but also joy of life. In there is a tinge of the 1950 exotica music showing up here and there through Latin grooves and some flimsy elements of rock shine through the whole soundscape as well. It is fantastic but not easy to categorize, could appeal to fans of US movie soundtracks from the early 70s and late 60s, created by folks like George Clinton but also be loved by people who enjoy the early works of electronic pop pioneers such as Walter Carlos and finally by space age pop aficionados. It is all in there and the reference of some artists drawing or painting is not far from what the music feels like. The participating musicians paint their melody – and rhythm patterns with an enormous feeling for depth and emotion. A masterpiece!
