Fascinating timeless electronic wizardry Tom Eaton – Indesterren (Into The Stars)

Fascinating timeless electronic wizardry Tom Eaton – INDESTERREN (INTO THE STARS):  If you are a fan of music that isn’t “bound” by any particular “time“, ergo infinite, you will find Tom’s electronic wizardry both fascinating and timeless, I’ve no doubt… I’ve been reviewing albums that he played on for many years now (the best example is probably his work with FLOW, and his recording work with Will Ackerman in Imaginary Road Studios), but this is my first experience with his solo work… I can tell you right now that tunes like “Venus“, which features Flugelhorn from our pal Jeff Oster, thrusts the magic of his music right into your living room (or, as I’d recommend – your HEADPHONES) in a most pleasant way!

Tom is a true “multi-instrumentalist“, playing piano, analog and digital synthesizers, guitars, fretted and fretless basses, accordion, omnichord, and acoustic and electronic percussion, and you’ll feel the passion of his playing with full effect as you scope out the wonderful “Midnight Clouds and the Great Bear“… in his own words, Tom said of his music “Indesterren is a collection of songs inspired by the night, the constellations, and the people i think of when looking into the stars.”… his vision on this song will inspire you to achieve your own dreams, I’ve no doubt.

The percussion Tom integrated into “Vervagen” (To Fade) contrasts ever so nicely with the solid piano and guitars… if you’re looking for a track to take you all the way to the “other side of the wormhole“, this will do quite nicely; hints of electronic vocals round it all out for a very enjoyable sonic experience!

It was actually a very simply constructed song that captured my vote for personal favorite of the dozen files Tom has offered up for your aural adventure… “Waltz for the Seven Sisters” captures the beauty of eternal heavens and makes it real for the listener… a fantastic piece of music!

I give Tom a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99 for this intriguing ambient set.  Get more information on Tom’s website.     Rotcod Zzaj
