“Astronomical Unit”, Erik Seifert’s fourth album (but his first on Spheric Music), was officially released February 8th 2008, and actually is a live album.
The music of the concept album, dealing with the astronomical unit that refers to the distance between the sun and the earth, contains some great new music (which synced to the projected pictures at the show) Erik played at his concert at the Planetarium Bochum in November 2006.
The 55 minutes of accessible, spherical music was composed with Ableton live, and continues in the tradition of melodic, Berliner inspired music, and has a strong cinematic impact.
These 55 minutes of inspired, relaxing music are a great treat for the ears. Very nicely rendered and executed, Erik!
