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.

(Synthdirect, UK)


----------------
-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.

What Makes This A Better Than Normal Album Is The Keen Insight This Individual Has In Penatrating The Rhytmic Force Of Ones Mind... Very Similar To The GREAT "Tangerine Dream", Ulrik Composes With The Delicate Balance of The Infinite Universe Transporting You Into A Blast From A Super Nova... A Definite Recommendation To The NEW AGE Genre...

This review is from the progresive magazine, Backroad Magazine


"Hidden Vibrations" is a very surprising disc.
Balancing Between Mike Oldfields recent albums, Tangerine Dream, and the other scandinavian ambient techno master Mr.
Biosphere. The listener is pleased with high quality electronic music. Hidden Vibratons shows one thing : Rey is a very talented artist and one to watch. In between this undiscovered gem in electronic music is waiting for you.

Enrique Gomez

Review from the mexican fanzine Progvision

"Hidden Vibrations" is created by the danish/spanish keyboardist Rey who has decided to follow the path of electronic music, in a way only few musicians did in the last years. The compositions have quite obvious influences from other electronic bands, but they only remain influences.

The tracks in the album takes element of numerous electronic styles. This artist has managed to put together the essence of classical electronic music sound and the modern technologies, given that in some parts, he even uses techno rythms and tecniques. The use of techno factor is moderate and creates a different sound in the record. It makes it more original.

This is not just another electronic artist among others,
Rey is more likely to be a worthy disciple of the greatest classical electronic musicians.

I recomend to the fans of this style not to think twice and buy "hidden Vibrations" straight away.

Electronic music needs new and original blood. Here is a good example of it


Simon From Elrose.uk

Simon from the site Elrose did find "Hidden Vibration" very original .
In terms of pedigree the music seems to draw on the legacy of artists such as Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze, but the music is actually quite diverse and it is also possible to make comparisons to bands such as OMD - although without the vocals - and even at times the likes of Hawkwind. This very mixture makes the music hard to pigeon-hole into any specific category but the end result is certainly a masterly performance that grows on you with each listening. From the outset the sound is driven by vigorous techno rhythms, which are sometimes hypnotic in quality and at others relaxing in the extreme.
On top of these patterns, synthesisers add texture and body while additional samples and sound effects are used with great results to provide additional atmosphere and lend an almost space rock feel to the final sound. The overall feel to the music is a typically European one.I will mention the tracks which I feel are particularly noteworthy. 'Temple of Beyond', which at 8'19" is also the longest on the album is a fine example of what's on offer here. The track opens with heavy use of ambient sounds which sets a slightly eerie mood initially the sound is punctuated by occasional drum beats giving the impression of a heartbeat. As the track progresses the synth sounds start to roll in and the oppressive mood gradually starts to lift as the tempo picks up - this continual building up and the use of layers of sound continues throughout the piece and the latter stages of the track are in keen contrast to the opening. 'Silver' is by comparison an altogether much lighter and more ethereal mood. The synth line cuts in right at the start and the percussion track give this an almost pop like air. The constant changes and development all the way through makes this one of the most easy going and enjoyable tunes on the album.
The qualitites shown in 'Exploring Mountains (stratosphere level)' are different yet again. Aspects of this track with swirling synth sounds and background vocal efects appear to lean heavily on the work of Tim Blake, one of the pioneeers in synth music, yet it borrows from his work without actually imitating it.
Although some of the tracks, such as 'Black Ocean' do initially come across as being overly repetitive, I did not find that this was a major obstacle to enjoying what is generally speaking a very good offering.
If you are already a fan of ambient/synth music, or you want some great music to relax and unwind to then this is almost certainly one that you will want to add to your collection. For those not familiar with the style this could be your opening to a whole new style of music - worth checking out. Simon from Elrose

George The Director Of Progresive Rock Reviews

Progrsive Rock Reviews chose this album to one of the best albums of 2000
"Hidden Vibrations" is a hybrid of ambient/techno and synth music and at times is atmospheric and mood creating and verges on Tangerine Dream's territory. The surprising thing is that, at times, it's actually better, the difference being in the accessibility of the music. Yes, Rey has taken, among others, Tangerine Dream as a template but has also added the melodic side of synth/ambient music to his own compositions and this is what makes this album so special. I should also add that I can hear hints of present day Mike Oldfield, especially Oldfield's ambient/techno stuff of late.
On the rich and deep sounding "Exploring Mountains" there is what sounds like a Mike Oldfield guitar effect. Then on "Violet Winds" you get wonderful keyboard/synth sounds eventually surfacing. I can imagine Oldfield composing something as special as these two tracks. Yes, you have the techno drum beat but thankfully it never becomes over powering. It compliments the music rather than domineering it and lets the music create the mood especially on the track "Black Ocean" where heavy use of percussion could easily have spoiled the effect. This is the most satisfying album, in its category, that I have heard in a long while, it grows with every hearing. I can certainly recommend this outstanding and at times melodic CD. Yes, another major album of 2000.
