THE BEAUTY IS KNOWING…


It is difficult to imagine, but Soundician’s second CD, “The Beauty is Knowing…”, is even deeper and more beautiful than their first. Using a more sophisticated and more sedate symphonic synthesizer…This music is for crawling inside and escaping for a moment or two. Deep listeners will appreciate the vibrant tones and the vivid colors. Those qualities give this album its extra appeal. This wonderful CD is a gem, worthy of inclusion – as a late entry – in many “Best of Year” lists.

Jim Brenholts – Ambient Visions – The Beauty is Knowing…(2002)

Consistently enjoyable, holding up well to repeated listenings (I gave the album at least ten spins prior to reviewing), The Beauty is Knowing…beckons a bright future for Soundician. Catchy without being poppish, ethereal without being cloying, and using electronic rhythms (which I should have delved into more of in this review – sorry) in inventive and clever ways, the recording reveals that the genre of melodic electronic keyboard music has lots of mileage left in it – in the right hands, of course – Recommended!
