SPACECRAFT / Press

“this amazing 55-minute, single-track piece sounds sparkling and positively beautiful, joining multi-cultural ethnic tones and drones with gently drifting guitars, flutes, and electronic effects. The haunting live instruments harken back to classic Kraut/space rock like Popol Vuh or Kluster, while the production and electronic soundscapes should prove to be quite pleasing to fans of master soundscapers like Steve Roach or Robert Rich. Summer Town is simply an engrossingly gorgeous work that works well in any setting, from background to deep listening. Take that as a recommendation.”

“Pursuing the course laid down by the pioneering music of Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze and Jean Michel Jarre, Spacecraft is making significant contributions to the Spacemusic genre. Recalling 1970's styles but adding their own contemporary inspiration, Spacecraft offers sounds and forms that "shift and morph through each other, gradually revealing broad chordal structures, gentle pulses, and the interlocking patterns that have long been the hallmark of space music."”

“Tony Gerber's synthesizers and superior production work combine with Chris Blazen's Electric Koto and the synthesizers of John Rose and Diane Timmons to make a seamless whole that is greater than the parts. The artists weave their electronic sounds like master loom workers, spinning a tapestry of sound that is wonderful to behold. THere is a lot to take in, and a lot to appreciate.”

“Spacecraft, the album, is a very original taste within the space-music banquet, somewhat moody, occasionally eerie, oftentimes alienating and haunting in parts, filled with noteless inclusions such as the sounds of beeping, buzzing, pulsating, primitive robotic language, trickling, horn-blowing, aural flashes, whooshes, rhythmic tick-tocking (track 5), and other otherworldly sound effects. The only thing missing is the vocals of Diane Timmons, but an ambient masterpiece nevertheless.”

“This is space/trance music made like it used to be. No new-agey saccharine tweedleblips or techno rhythm-machine-clatter, just s-l-o-w, dreamy, otherworldly, mountain-of-sound synth stylings with a light sprinkling of vocals, found samples and science-fiction-movie sounds.”

“I heard the "Hummel" album on "Echoes" and immediately knew I had fallen on a gem. As a big fan of TD era '73-'77, I keep hoping to come across more albums that display the same unique sound of "deep space" made legendary by TD. "Hummel" is as good as, if not better, than anything TD ever put out.”

“Think Eno's Apollo space sounds, avant garde works of Subotonik, and Salvador Dali on lysergic acid. On "Destination Infinity" we gain a sense of resolution, a signature Gerberian area I'll call, "the final answer revealed." Take a chance and wander the unknown.”
