ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Luminosity is jeffrey koepper's latest solo release. Like his previous albums, it is composed entirely with vintage analog synths, drum machines and analog sequencers. With Luminosity Koepper explores new emotional ambient places. Each track will take the listener on a journey to different sonic territories. Koepper uses a combination of ambient textures, sequencer rhythms and deep atmospheres to create these emotional lush structures. Luminosity has a very organic flowing feel and its moods touch on somber peacefulness as well as ecstatic hopefulness.

reviews:

I continue to be impressed by the high quality of Jeffrey Koepper’s releases, fantastic music in the style of late 70s and early 80s Tangerine Dream. As usual, Luminosity is filled with great sequencing, tight melodies, and beautifully atmospheric space music. The breadth and depth of Koepper’s talent is on full display within the first three tracks, starting with catchy moderately paced sequencing and synths on “Reflection.” In perfect contrast, “Light and Truth” is very airy, light but not insubstantial, full of bright shimmering tones in relaxed sonic hues. “Artifacts” goes pure retro, but in a stripped down way, using three synths to capture the essence of the old classic Mellotron flutes, strings, and a simple cadence in the background to keep time. It is wonderful in its sparseness, as is the next track, “Winter Space.” In fact, this is a considerably mellower affair throughout than its predecessor, Sequentaria. “Life Clock” continues the easygoing pace, ticking slowly with cool space twitters along the way. The lead synth line here is very reminiscent of vintage Klaus Schulze. Gently pulsating sequences pick up the tempo a little on the next couple of tracks, but throughout the disc shows considerable restraint, focusing on setting a hypnotic mood and maintaining it, particularly in the case of the 11-minute “Transmission,” the longest track and yet the one you may miss most after it fades. “Dusk Till Dawn” is the most minimal track, mostly water and low drones, with a sparse melody toward the end, very cool. “Rising Sun” is a warm, relaxing number to finish off a great album in style.

Touching...Drifting...Imaginative...Dreamy!
Jeffrey Koepper is a master when it comes to emotional electronic soundscapes. This is his fourth installment and so far the best, in my opinion. The equipment used is typical mid to late 70's early 80's analog synthesizers. It all sounds very vintage and some tunes are really aching towards the Tangerine Dream sound that many of us are so familiar with.

The opening sequence of 'Reflection' is a masterfully done piece of art, followed by the more soft and touching 'Light And Truth'. This is what I call first class imaginary space music!

But the voyage doesn't end there. Some of the more experimental tracks we find on this disc are 'Artifacts', 'Life Clock' and 'Transmission' which are incredibly moving aswell and takes you on a immersive voyage through space & time. Those tracks contains some very lush sequencer work and are very hypnotising and makes you drift away somewhere into another dimension.

The only track that didn't quite grab me 100% was the last one called 'Rising Sun', mostly because it sounded too much like a few of Koepper's other tracks on his previous releases, but then that might just be me. It's not really a dull track, but perhaps not one I would return to again and again.

After a few listenings I can only say that this CD is a must have if you liked Jeffrey's previous CD's, especially if you liked 'Etherea', or if you are a big fan of early Tangerine Dream!

Highly Recommended!
