ROMERIUM Interesting Album with good rhythems and special (mellotron) sounds.
Also the guitarsolo's are delicious !
Good album with the necessary (eastern) mysticism. Favorite track: The Orbs Of Light.

"In many ways this album with Thaneco has been a magical and emotional one for me as he has resurrected and breathed new life into what were basically just spontaneous improvisations I recorded over 40 years ago in 1978 with the aid of a Korg Micro-preset synth, a Jumbo Gem electronic organ, my self built audio generator and electric guitar, all fed into a Watkins copycat for tape echo and recorded one layer at a time on an Akai 4000DS reel to reel tape recorder. A SW radio and self built cimbalom also make an appearance on one of the tracks!
These recordings were then shelved away for the following decades and remained unheard until it came to working with Thaneco on a second album to follow on from 2017’s “Empyreal”. I sent him a lot of the 1978 material as possible ideas to work with and was amazed that he was able to incorporate the actual recordings to make something altogether new by developing on what I had done and including his own brilliant sections and solos. I then overdubbed some new parts myself and the result is something very special I think - I hope you do too!" Steve Hillman.

electronic and 80s inspired synth music . I mainly use vintage analogue synthesizers (prophet 5, minimoog model d, korg polysix, roland sh 101, oberheim matrix 1000 and SEM) and eurorack modular synthesizers. I also like using computer applications. Some of my favourite are: Reaktor and U-he Zebra. ... more
