ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Note: Some listeners have asked about the "CD-RP" designation for the Astral Currents CD. Please be assured that it is a normal, full-quality CD in CD Audio format and is professionally made in a high-volume factory. Thank you!

From Bert Strolenberg, KLEM Magazine:
Well, well, here we have a CD which features some music which is perfectly in line with those made some years ago in the classic tradition of spacemusic. Telomere is Christopher MacDonald, who's "Astral Currents" is his debut-record. Christopher owns a nice piece of electronic gear, the Serge Modular Synthesizer (also called "The Mighty Serge" by fellow space-travellers Kevin Braheny and Michael Stearns), and therefore a great sound is already guaranteed.
And yes, the listener isn't disappointed at all: Telomere composes beautiful space music with great expanding sound textures that starts off with "Departure", and before you know it, you drift somewhere out there in space, voyaging along in your private spaceship toward stars, planets, and towards what may be behind all that to discover. There are enough mysterious angles, bits and details to be heard on this ongoing non-rhythmic journey, which is very nicely produced and of splendid sound quality throughout. Some nice atmospheres are encountered when enjoyoing this music, as we enter both deeper & lighter regions/aspects of our cosmos. For those who like the first CD's of John Serrie or are still clinged towards Michael Stearns "Planetary Unfolding" should absolutely buy this one. This would be a great companion to a cosmic IMAX-film or planetarium show.

Incredible !!!
This is one of the best "planetary music" CDs you can buy. If you have listened to the music of Michael Stearns, Kevin Braheny or Jonn Serrie, and you like it, this is definetively a must-have for you !

10 out of 10. For travelling far away from Earth to the galaxies, buy this record.

The definition of a gem.
I have listened to hundreds of ambient cds, from Steve Roach to Vidna Obmana, and only stumbled upon this album recently.
It was literally like discovering a gem in a field of semi- precious stones, if you know what I mean.

If I had to file all of my ambient albums from 1 to 10. This would go at 10. It just pushes my buttons. The buttons to my spacecraft. And allows me to just float away into space. Really, have a listen, and if you love it like me, support this by buying it.
