"I am in electro fire danger ... save me ..." (Source link in Russian)
Russia Created: 9 Sep 2011
Beggars Opera "Lose a Life (a nano opera based on a true story)" (2010)
To begin with a little help: electro - a term in the field of environmental health, indicating an increased dependence of man on the electromagnetic fields of different frequencies, ranging from static electricity, and ending with the microwave range. According to the World Health Organization on the planet has about 5% of the electro-sensitive individuals. This interest group is owned and leader Ricky Gardiner BO. In order to raise public awareness of such a rare, but important issue, the wife of Gardiner, singer and keyboardist Scott of Virginia has taken a very bold step - she created a mini-opera, which builds on the experience of observing the suffering of her husband. Thus, "Lose a Life" - the most personal album for both, "the sound of my biography of those years, which is marked by confrontation electro nightmare," as it deals with Ricky. By the way, the method of treatment used in the treatment of Gardiner, included a number of restrictions on the use of household appliances - from televisions, computers and CD-players to microwave ovens and mobile phones. So write the music for "Lose a Life" - a kind of heroism on the part of middle-aged actor, who was able to flood the plate with bright electric guitars parties. And now I come to the point.
In comparison with the disc "Close to My Heart" (2007) present creation Beggars Opera is not only more coherent, but different in stylistic terms. Having taken the reins of the project management in the hands of Virginia has built a composite fabric of the program by the laws of classical opera. However, the Arranger of these things actually were not affected. Note the dramatic narrative sets the entry "Electrofire Invasion". 11.5 These largely instrumental in keeping minutes of flow solemn and gloomy keyboard orchestrations, sets off the smooth play of drummer Tom Gardiner and enhanced hail gusts of guitar Exercise Ricky. The apotheosis of space Rhapsody is a call for help: "I am in electro fire danger ... save me ..." Conditions gloomy introspection of their own inherited episode number 2 - "Electro Half Light", in whose palette converge line progressive trance opera and quite unexpected reasons Scottish jig. "Masts on My Roof" - a great opportunity to demonstrate the wonders of Mrs. Scott, vocal skill. To heighten the effect of choral refrains texture based on the application of plural voice. And all this ringing a crystal-tonal splendor harmoniously side by side with hard distortion grooves and space-synth textures saundskeypovymi. In the midtempo number "Cosmic Tango" expressive string riffs mastermind cardiac currents saturate every cell in the etude, while the percussion-note polyphonic setting for the final stage adds a healthy dose of pathos of history. Artistic peak of the concept can be considered the head of "Dr. Carlo" - a hypnotic prog-rock, made of highly original recipe. The denouement of the action - a wordless finale "Tango for the End of Time", formed by the stratagem of pseudo-symphonic passages with moderate doses of the arsenal of hard-rock, an unusual sketch, intended to awaken in the listener a great thirst for life.
To sum up: quite strong and stylish release of unfading family tandem. I advise you to read.
