Editorial Reviews

"COSMOLOGY" is AQi Fzono's 5th Album, one of his representative works of the 90's. When the original version was released in 1998, it was recognized as "one of the greatest albums in the history of the Spacey Electronic Instrumental Music comparable to Oxygene by Jean-Michel Jarre and Tubular Bells by Mike Oldfield". This is the digitally remastered 2006 version that AQi Fzono calls it as the "Composer's Cut" (like "Director's Cut" in film term), the definitive edition that the artist himself took command of the remastering process. Not only the sound has been remastered, but the 8-page full color booklet and the jacket design have also been totally renewed.

The sound that portrays "transcend time and space" fuses his world class arranging styles of Techno/Dance Music, Ambient, Progressive Rock and Classical Music. At the original release it was highly regarded as "a rare cross-fertilization of Electronic Music, Techno, Progressive Rock, Psychedelic Music and Classical Music" and "the sound that materializes as if you were viewing a monumental Sci-Fi trip movie".

A club hit "COSMOLOGY 5" and other tunes embracing elements of Ambient, Techno, Trance, IDM, Trip Hop, and Drum'n'Base show AQi Fzono's different approach to the current Club/Electronic Music sounds. While each track has a unique characteristic based on his original Sci-fi Music style, the album as a whole portrays a majestic and translunary world.

The massive sound that fuses Dance/Electronica Music and groundbreaking Progressive Music has established a new term in music, Sci-fi Music, and at the same time established a new genre "Symphonic Techno". The majestic synthesizer orchestration sound created with various analog and digital, vintage and cutting-edge synthesizers is phenomenal. This is also the world first album that featured Syntheremin, the original musical instrument invented by AQi Fzono, adding uncharted sounds.

"A great post-Jean Michel Jarre electronic music album"

Cosmology by AQi Fzono is my favorite album right now. It contains wide a variety musical styles - Trance-Techno-like Cosmology 5 that became a club hit, a great Symphonic Techno tune Cosmology 3 etc. - yet it has an overall visual story as a total album and in my opinion the quality is world class. This is a legendary album said to have brought forth the new genre and the new methodology Symphonic Techno and Sci-fi music that AQi Fzono conceived and created, and I can hear the uniqueness and the innovativeness. What impresses me is that the music is actually bigger than the idea. It definitely has influence from Electronic Dance Music like Techno, House and Ambient, but at the same time it has remnants of "Synthesizer music" of the 1970s, meaning it has the feels of the music by Jean Michel Jarre and Tangerine Dream, and of Psychedelic Rock music like Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd. I think this album goes beyond the generations and the genres, and can be enjoyed as pure music.
