Moody, uplifting, and passionate electronic music is what´s found in Frank Dorritke´s 70-minute, cosmic-themed “Stars Landscape and Collision”. Partial progressive and orchestral in form, the five-part title piece offers a dynamic, melodic-oriented outcome boosted by warm synth pads, captivating rhythm, and driving sequences, all topped by some passionate synth & e-guitar solos. Regarding the latter, Frank’s love and passion for Mike Oldfield’s music and the man’s expressive guitar work is expressed clearly and beautifully in the glowing third part.
The CD edition concludes with the 24-minute sojourn “The Cave of all Truths” which sonically fits nicely next to the previous music despite coming forward more cinematic, ambient-atmospheric, and less energetic. Instead of this track, the download edition of the release (offered only through the artist’s BC site) contains a live rehearsal from 2014.
All in all, this solid, accessible album proves this talented, Dinslaken-based musician is still going strong. Keep it up, Frank!
