“From the forgotten rooms of a lonely house” is a limited edition album of only 400 copies, offered as a free gift to visitors of the concerts held on December 30, 2011 and January 8th, 2012. The first three tracks on this album are live-pieces by the quartet MorPheuSz (Eric, Frank, Harold and Ron).
Compared too the mellow “Garden Gomblins…” album, the band here plays more dynamic and melodic/progessive music, including glowing versions of “Another Timeroom” and “Da Capo”.
But with the fascinating and haunting “Vocat Catalism”, Mr Boots intrigued me the most. On this 16-minute piece, Ron mixes classic morphing pads with heavy beats/drums and mesmerizing effects, all executed in a hypnotizing but also rather freeform style. The soaring solo-voices in the second half carry along like classic Schulze.
A darkening mood fades in on the cinematic “From the Dark Cellars of the House”. Here one can feel a slightly gloomy, desolate feel hanging in the air as we wander through the basements. With the energizing and upbeat track “Spinning out of Control”, Ron gives things another fine shot in dance/techno style, as he did years before on a sampler for a techno & dance event in the TU/E Eindhoven.
All in all, the split-album “From the forgotten rooms of a lonely house” is a release not to be missed.
