I have the previous two Brainscapes releases, and I will warn you that this one is not like the others. This CD is more trance/dance beat oriented, using fuller synth instrumentation and more overdubs. That said, it is still a real kick to listen to! The music has a nice, mellow beat with tasty vocal dubs to fill it out. The first two cuts, "Sweet Thing" and "Sumanja" will give you a feel for the more beat-oriented tunes. Number three, "Sangita Sangita" is closer to some of the earlier releases, and has an "Enigma-like" use of chant-type vocals in the background contrasted with the eastern stylings of the lead vocalist, Natalia Gotbolt. Track four, "Organica" sounds almost retro-German synthesized, with an overriding, clockwork like beat. Other cuts, such as "Rainbow Serpent" make use of digeridu, and have a more tribal feel. Track number 7, "Secret Valley" is dreamy, and has a guitar-like feel. Track 8, "Goa Trance" is most trance-like, and is the longest cut. It uses a nice backbeat with synth overdubs that are hard to listen to without dancing--great road trip music. Then there is cut number 11, "Tara's Melody" which has a distinctly jazz-lounge feel to it. So you see that the music is hard to categorize. All in all, the album works, but as a trance/dance CD, not a quiet meditative trip like the first two CDs. Listen to the samples, there is a enough music even in 30 seconds to give you a feel for the CD.

BRAINSCAPES BRAINSCAPES 2001
In 2001: A Space Odyssey, visionary film director Stanley Kubrick charted new cinematic terrain as he took viewers on a psychedelic trip into the 21st century. With Brainscapes 2001,visionary Dutch musician Alain Eskinasi similarly employs new musical sounds and forms to take listeners on a sonic journey into the new millennium. If Kubrick's astronauts had happened upon a nightclub in the year 2001, this is the kind of music they might have sampled.
This is the third Brainscapes recording to emanate from the Amsterdam studio of this prolific composer, arranger, keyboardist, guitarist and percussionist. The first two dealt with,respectively, music's effects on the brain and the emotions.Call them sound collages where ambient, trance-dance and meditation music meet in seductive and mysterious ways. His latest project distills elements from the first two records, but adds an uptempo dance aesthetic to the mix. The music is still imbued with a mesmerizing, otherworldly quality, but is now layered with an infectious groove that moves the feet as it uplifts the spirit. Says Eskinasi, "After doing two mellow albums and working so much with African and Smooth Jazz projects (including the legendary group 3rd Force), it was time to apply some more groove to my own work. The third Brainscapes album is quite different than the first two. It1s not based on a healing music theory (as was Chakradancer), but is designed to provide dance music with a melody, and with more depth than the electronic trance that has pretty much taken over the European dance scene." >From the throbbing opening bars of the first track, "Sweet Thing," Brainscapes 2001 lives up its creator's billing as intelligent dance music.

This original music is woven of the pulsing rhythms of trans-ethnical melodies with covering ambient noises. Many samples are used in it, and they are so organically interwined with the "cloth" of the works of Alain Eskinasi, that one just can not completely understand, where here are living sounds, and where are the sounds synthesized by the artist himself. Only in the opening composition «Sweet Thing» you understand that you hear a living Indian flute. Its hypnotically-charming sounds rush into the room, penetrating in the depths of consciousness and making you realize something incredibly ancient and beautiful. This is Kailash, which helps listeners to feel the magic of Indian music.

«2001» is a third project by «Brainscapes», created by an outstanding Dutch composer, arranger, keyboardist, guitarist and percussionist Alain Eskinasi. With that, his new is strongly different from the two preceding ones, «Chacradancer» and «Brainscapes».

Famous musician, a participant of the «3rd Force» group wanted to go aside from the music for healing and meditation, and create something more dynamic, suitable for night clubs and discos. And he succeeded completely! Dynamic, pulsing music of the «2001» is ideal for parties with dancing. But it is not only music for discos. It is deep, and the ancient cultures of East and West are at present there. Indian melodies, Indian singing, Near-East rhythms, mysteriously-buzzing sounds of the Australian didgeridoo flutes and a lot of sounds of the ancient ethnical melodies are united with European dancing music, creating a new type of the synthetic multicultural music, which is much more than just some particular genre.
