ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Botielus creates melodic symphonies and soundscapes using only synthesizers. He combines realistic traditional sounds (strings, oboe, piano, etc.) with pure synthesizer sounds - to create a virtual orchestra. His music is wonderfully unique, but has been compared to the music of
Jean Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream, Enigma, Vangelis, Mike Oldfield, and Yanni.
"Phresh Ideas" is Botielus' 3rd album, and was released only a month or so after his second album "Vision Quest". He used the same synthesizer, and recording methods, so it has the same sonic qualities of "Vision Quest". The songwriting changed a bit for some of the songs, more towards a pop type format. This is opposed to many of the "Vision Quest" songs which were more like the Tangerine Dream and Jarre style (long melodic passages with different layers and melodies added - with only a few actual sections). So basically, "Phresh Ideas" is similar, yet different to "Vision Quest"! Great stuff - this is easily some of the best electronic music of this genre on CDbaby - a great, undiscovered jewel!!

Rhythmic, Melodic and Invigorating Instrumental Music!
Phresh Ideas is a bit of a departure from Botielus’ Vision Quest CD, which I also own. That CD was more eclectic. Phresh Ideas is more of cohesive set of new age-like, synthesizer-driven instrumentals. Calling it new age is not quite right because that can call to mind some fairly dreary synthesizer “noodling.” This is much more. Some of the better features of new age music are here in the form of airy synthesizer tones, alternatively haunting, jaunty and at times, majestic. Botielus uses saxophone, trumpet, tubular bells, ocarina and pan flute sounds for the melodies that are par for the genre. However, Botielus then adds rhythmic beats and harmonic parts that are insistent and often danceable. He creates arrangements of swirling sounds and melodies that sweep you up in their energetic twists and turns. This music is invigorating. Botielus often walks a melodic high wire as the swirling and cascading parts stand on the edge of dashed discord and then melodically right themselves to reach a higher level. Botielus sense of melody and rhythm call to mind the heyday of new age music, but with Phresh Ideas he creates something more lasting and much more interesting.
