".........find some tracks that I simply must have on my hard drive .Speaking of which, here´s one.Incredibly bright, contemplative music here, traversing a path before taken by Tangerine Dream and quite possibly the YellowJackets in the Jazz vein..........Highly recommended for those who still believe meditation is possible in any genre or format, as long as it is presented correctly............Originating from what looks like a MIDI dream studio, the musical masterpieces from Harmonic Obsession promote that aesthetic: Pure, unadulterated (though highly processed) Pat Metheny, Ozric Tentacles (stabilized), King Crimson, Miles Davis, Jaco Pastorius, Special EFX, Philharmonie, and Brian Eno influential jazz, all seemingly pressed into a sterilized, yet far from homogenous state. Thomas Wolff spearheads Harmonic Obsession, the true course of his vehicle known only to him. Each track bursts with highly concentrated analog and digital sound bombs that explode ruthlessly around the teeming listener, yet the smoke pluming from these sound bombs have the most intoxicating gas known to man: ether. If we were to apply the impeccable guitar and synth melodies and leads simply plastering HO's tracks to the carriage of dreamy sleep known as ether, we would come up with a fine representation of that gas and it's inherent properties.
