“Core” is a concept album on the Large Hadron Collider (a huge particle accelerator in Switzerland used for high-energy physics research), which took Erik Seifert three years of work to complete.
Like the LHC-project itself, the uninterrupted sonic outcome is one of grand design, offering a lot of sampled and spacious in-your-face effects accompanying the highly cinematic electronics.
Listening to Erik’s atmospheric creations, especially to the surface on “AD”, creates a gracious, futuristic space in real-time, while his more melodic excursions (such as the openingtrack “LHC”) gently and accessible describe the realm in which things at the Hadron Collider happen.
Toward the end, the album is set more and more in motion with smooth and tasty up-tempo passages.
All in all, “Core” doesn’t disappoint on any level. Mission well accomplished, Erik!
