Unique – Movie without Pictures
CD, Nocturne Records, 1998


“Movie without Pictures” is the second album the German brothers Andre and Frank Standke. Again, the two musicians offer an original kind of instrumental electronic music, which is cinematic and unpredictable in fashion.

This time, the music relies a bit more on rhythmic structures although there’s still enough room left for engaging and occasionally even intimate melodies.

The short but uplifting “Happiness is easy”, “The Book Of The Fifth Month”, “Loast to the world” and the final “Sweet Dreams” are highlights of the album, next to the moody “Rizzz”, a contemporary piece with nice vintage flavours.

All in all, Unique’s well-produced but difficult to classify “story-telling” music consists of several layers and surprising angles. It surely demands some time to grab the unusual character, shape and depth of the compositions.
