Thought Guild’s third and final album “Third Voyage” is handmade and packaged in beautiful “retro” 5.25 floppy discs, all hand numbered with a limited edition of only 50 copies.
Despite a slight nod toward the Berliner School style, the duo has created its own inspired and spacious universe during the years, that reaches its peak with the sonic delights and warm environments embedded in the eights tracks that make up “Third Yoyage”. There’s a pleasant freshness and joy found in their music (mostly due to the highly improvised approach), that features transparent textures but almost no rhythms and sequences.
A special mention on the moody, highly celestial “Last train to Lyon” and the immersive “Moon Blossom Meditation”, both four minutes of smooth soaring bliss in a nutshell.
Please note the strictly limited physical release of “Third Voyage” is only being sold from the Harmonic Resonance Recordings website. A digital download is available through iTunes.
Update February 2015: a digital re-release of the album saw the light of day containing the additional archival track “Ki”. It´s an all improvised track much like all the other Thought Guild music and carries an air of spontaneity whilst channeling the vibes and feel of that “vintage” 1970s/80 style of synthesizer music drawn from the European and domestic well of music inspiration.
