About "Hidden Vibrations".
Bands like Biosphere, The Orb, Brian Eno, Tangerine Dream and Mike Oldfield has been some of the inspiration source for the CD "Hidden Vibrations". But Rey has his own style with a special drum-programing that gives the music a more experimental caracter with haunting atmospheres. The music also contains exiting melodylines beside the spherical and different soundscapes.
This cd contains a lot of sound textures. Filtersweeps, warm symphonic strings, great interesting and stunning synthleads, pulsating sequencer rythms, huge atmospheric pads, mystical voices, big cave ambiences, large sound effects. But it´s all managed in a more special and original way. Mystical and dark forces + soft percusion and beats are also featuring the this album.
Cue Records, Germany, did chose the album as the CD of the month. Progresive Rock Reviews did consider it as one of the best releases ever heard in the year.
Hidden Vibrations have also been reviewet around the world.
Most of the reviews have been surprisingly good.
Highlights from some of the reviews are telling this:
-As early Mali Rain. The more I hear this CD the more I like it. The album shows that there is a place where the crossover between Synthesizer- and ambientmusic never has been full explored. Rey is one of the few musicians who is doing it.
(CD-services, Andie Garibaldi, UK)
-Rey is a very talented artist who is waiting for you. Rey is one to watch.
(Backroad magazine, Robert Sculler, Netherlands)
-The track "Sharmila" on this album is well composed with a spin sharp rythm wich really kicks. A Hugely enjoyable track. The track "Tempel of Beyond" is some of the best modern ambientmusic I ever have heard.
-Rey is not just another electronic musician among others.
Rey is a worthy disciple of some of the greatest clasic electronic musicians. Electronic music needs new blood and original ideas. Rey is a good example of this.
For the fans of this style I highly recomend them not to think twice and by "Hidden Vibrations" straight.
(Progvision, Enrique Montiel, Mexico)
Rey has been involved in "live"-performances in the techno/ambient-scene of Copenhagen. Rey is also involved in other projects with electronic bands like Supersonic, Aquatic Ghost and Solscape.
