Air Machine is Belgian composer and producer Frank Van Bogaert’s eighth solo album.
On this album his trade mark lush sound gets even richer because of the contribution of Norwegian guitar player Erik Wøllo as well as some other experienced studio session players.
The 50-minutes of music still has the Van Bogaert-approach, but the music is more spread-out, at times the melodic approach and “Vangelis-sound” has moved to the background, leaving room for some to-the-point guitar work by Erik Wøllo.
This digi-pack cd comes with some stunning, very clean artwork, of which the music itself took over two years to compose and mix.
Air Machine takes you on a beautiful musical voyage going from relaxing to even progressive rock influenced songs.
It’s actually Frank’s first concept album, dealing with the environmental issue threatening our planet, and thus affecting us all.
A truly gorgeous album.
