This is the 6th release in the successful ‘Modular Sessions’ series, which, in light of recent sad events, is a slightly different album from the previous five!

The regular ‘Modular Sessions’ collaborative CD has been rescheduled in favour of this musical tribute by Mark Jenkins to "the four masters" - Klaus Schulze, Vangelis, Edgar Froese and Jean-Michel Jarre, sadly three of whom are no longer with us and the last happily still active and innovative.

Painstakingly analysing the sounds, style and soloing techniques of these four musicians at very specific times in their career, the album offers four epic pastiche pieces – one for each - plus two Bonus Tracks of remix versions.

As for the music … ‘An Encore’ opens the set as a thirteen-minute track in the style of Edgar Froese's TANGERINE DREAM live in 1976 …somewhere between ‘Ricochet’ and ‘Encore’.
‘Caress The Technology’ follows and notches up almost nineteen minutes of music in Klaus Schulze's more techno style of the late 1990's, even with a guest guitarist!
‘Band In The Spring’ is just over nine minutes of EM in an early Jean-Michel Jarre style invoked in an up-tempo, very French piece.
‘Farewell’ is the full six-minute plus version of an emotive remembrance of Vangelis as he was around his ‘Spiral’ album period.
The two Bonus Tracks comprise a thirteen-minute studio version of ‘An Encore’ and three minute single mix of ‘Band In The Spring’.

As usual this ‘Modular Sessions’ release is LIMITED to 100 numbered copies worldwide and counts as a qualifier from the purchase of any three from ‘Modular Sessions’ issues 5 - 8 for the free ‘Bonus Beta’ CD that is due soon.
Still available is the ‘Bonus Alpha’ disc which is free on the purchase CD of any three discs from ‘Modular Sessions’ issues 1 - 4.and also available to purchase as a stand-alone album.

You can get a feel for ‘Modular Sessions 6’ from the short version of ‘Farewell’ listed on YouTube: https://youtu.be/hT9exush-aQ

‘Modular Sessions 6 - Art Of The Synthesizer’ is released on 24th June 2022.
