occasionally happens, a Triax session that is so inspired and groundbreaking
that it has to be released as an album, as it is with no serious editing or post-production.
Well, okay, that wasn't quite the case here as some pruning was needed,
largely due to technical faults like feedback & overload/glitches, etc.,
which we don't want do we? Also I missed a few lame/uninteresting passages to
give it a more dynamic flow. The results are a seriously impressive double
album proving that Triax are by no means running out of steam or new ideas,
but growing, developing and changing....
Elements is just 4 big surreal mind
movies, audio paintings, sonic journeys - call them what you will - that each
flow and develop through many changes. A lot of "musical" guitar
from Dave on this one, and "melodic" organ/synth/mellotron from
Alan, all counterpointing Steve's audioscape work, fleshing out the Triax you
may know with a lot that you've never heard before. Think "Spiral
Insana" era NWW, very early Klaus Schulze, Parmegiani, Bayle, Italian
experimentalists, etc. All that sometimes, none of that on occasions (going
places even we've never heard before). Typical Triax then?
