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. The songs range between EXHILARATING and SOOTHING. His music is wonderfully unique, but has been compared to the music of
Jean Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream, Enigma, Vangelis, Mike Oldfield, and even Yanni.

If you only have time to listen to one or two song samples, choose the exhilarating EXCITO first, and then the soothing SWEETDREAMS second.
We think you'll agree the music of BOTIELUS is some of the best electronic beautiful music available!

Some earlier reviews from Riffage.com

1) First feature: "The theme of New Age enlightenment seems to run through each of Botielus' synthesizer dreams. Botielus weaves ethereal melodies with an exhilarating percussion heartbeat. "Sweet Dreams" has a consistently invigorating sound throughout its powerful build and glorious resolution, bringing to mind morning fog burning away to reveal radiant daylight. "Excito" is a rapid dance of wind instruments and synthesizer, sure to thrill and inspire."

2) Second feature: "We hold a special place for those electronic producers who want nothing more than to noodle on electro beats and experimental sounds all day -- especially when they do it well! Botielus prowls around the same sort of dark and thought-provoking synthetic grounds similar as Tangerine Dream and Jean Michel Jarre."

Jeffrey Olson

A beautifully lush and animated journey out of mind.
Vision Quest is highly melodic and compelling music. Some of the more subdued pieces could be called “relaxing,” but I like to describe the effect of this music in the right setting as “transcendent.” I enjoy music that takes you out of yourself for a little while. Botielus makes this journey out of mind extremely pleasant--full of twists and turns of melody, tempo and instrumentation. Botielus uses nature and acoustic instrument sounds to create a rich atmosphere upon which he builds lush synthesizer sounds and percussive undercurrents.

“Saturdays” is somewhat reminiscent of Vangelis and yet grooves in a way Vangelis could only dream about. “Excito,” sounds to me like an exciting journey through the night sky. Other pieces like “Omri” are somewhat mysterious and seductively dark. On “535,” Botielus renders up a bluesy tune that would fit perfectly in a roadside café off of the Karma highway. Vision Quest is definitely not airy, forgettable background music. Instead, Botielus has created music that is complex and animated—sometimes relaxing, sometimes picking you up and carrying you along in a wave of transcendent music. Fans of new age music will find this CD to be familiar and yet an entirely original experience.
