about

Ethereal Live is happy to announce the return of the ambient necromancer Tange, aka Gordon MacMillan. Tange is a gifted musician. Not only is he an accomplished string instrumentalist, he is also a synthsizer madman. For Tange's newest release with Ethereal Live, we receive a beautiful long-form synthesizer suite just over thirty minutes that I guarantee you will find hard to resist.

On Live 04.21.12, Tange makes abundant use of Plogue Bidule, a generative software which can transform input into something entirely different as it interprets and translates the data through its algorithmic structure. Bidule can work independently or with suggestion by the player to alter its seemingly random course. In this case, Gordie modulates the generative output occasionally to steer the composition the direction he would like to keep going. MacMillan also supplies some additional instrumentation which fills in all the gaps and adds that extra element of excitement you get from live and improvised music.

Tange is able to craft gorgeous pads and floating textures throughout this live set that truly make you feel like you are drifting in the upper stratosphere. Live 04.21.12 tends to drift more towards the floating ambient / atmospheric side of the genres, but Berlin-School fans will be happy to hear some nice syncopated sequencing that flows in and out of the mix throughout the set. This is a lovely live set by Tange that you won't want to miss. Must have!
