The music on “Pro Sequentia”(which is Latin for the sequential hymns sung by monks and musicians at around the year 1100) of Dutch synthesist René van der Wouden shows a few musical steps forward.
Above all, it features a warmer, better produced sound, which makes the general melodic music stand out better.
The five tracks are very accessible, the first “Prosa” starting out with joyful played sounds and rhythms. The second track sits back, journeying into quiet, floating territory before setting out in a sequenced/rhythmic outing.
“Prosa 3”, the longest track lasting over 22 minutes, carries a nice, engaging feel with its undeniable influences of both Mr Jarre and Vangelis.
On the other hand, the warm anthem-like textures of the closing track do very well before (pitiful enough) the rhythms set in, next to the beautiful melancholic feel halfway.
