Blüchel & von Deylen – Bi Polar
CD, Edel Music, 2003

Unlike the music on “Mare Stellaris”, only two of the eight tracks on “BiPolar” are original compositions by Christopher von Deylen and Harald Blüchel. The other six electronic tracks are all re-interpretations of existing classic tracks by Eric Satie (Gymnopedié No.1 & 3), Philip Glass, Michael Nyman, Wim Mertens and George Gershwin.

The outcome are lush, atmospheric and fresh sounding compositions with a modern, sparkling and overall dreamy/relaxed feel. Intelligent, rhythmic electronica balancing between down-tempo and minimal music.
One can’t miss the melancholic undercurrents in these high quality and very well produced chill-out compositions, but their isn’t a real highlight either on this instrumental work.

All in all, “BiPolar” is a fusion-album of ambient and classical music with a strong sense of transparency and timelessness, which in the end isn’t as convincing as “Mare Stellaris”, although cleverly put together.
