Editorial Reviews

Awakening Consciousness through Music Something Getting Wrong combines a unique musical articulation of Michael s perspective on the disharmony that plagues our planet, coupled with his advocacy for human and environmental rights. Michael composed and produced the album and develops the sound on guitar, keyboard, piano and drums. He hopes his music will gift the imagination with a contemplative melodic platform to awaken deeply rooted memories and emotions while opening the mind to freedom of expression. Something Getting Wrong truly evokes the curiosity of the listener with an alluring ambient electronic soundtrack accompanied by the haunting melodies of a cello. Something Getting Wrong is a musical reflection on how I have come to perceive the world over the past 25 years says Michael.. I intend for my music to make people consciously aware of certain unpleasant and pleasant incidents occurring amongst humanity by building my music around particular events that have evoked my attention.

One of the drawbacks of reviewing so many CDs is that it's often difficult to find something truly unique about an artist's music. Then an album like Michael de Salem's "Something Getting Wrong" comes along and stands in a category of its own without being so "out there" that it's impossible to relate to. Swiss composer and multi-instrumentalist Michael de Salem is also a human and environmental rights activist who has extensively studied physics to gain a better understanding of the behavior of the natural world. Those studies led to the shocking discovery that Earth would eventually become unable to sustain any form of life as a result of the actions and choices of an un-evolved human consciousness. A self-taught musician, de Salem's approach to composing the music on this album was to combine musical expressions of life experience with his extensive knowledge of natural sciences. He says: "Every sound in my compositions is chosen to dance with the other, identical to the way elements inherently come together to compose matter." The results are extraordinary in their depth and intensity. More melodic and rhythmic than most ambient music, subtler than most rock, darker than most new age, de Salem deftly blends piano, keyboards, guitar, and drum programming along with Ann Nina's cello to create a soundtrack to life in peril. De Salem further explains: "I wish to plant a song as a seed in the mind, heart and soul of the listener in hopes that the seeds will blossom into flowers and trees that live infinitely embedded deep into the consciousness of the being."

"Something Getting Wrong" begins with "Metropolitan," a darkly intense piece that opens with a strong rhythm and the sound of sirens. The heavy beat continues as the musical themes range from sinister to pleasantly upbeat.

Michael de Salem's first CD is a brooding masterpiece that has a dark, ominous sense of foreboding, with musical rays of hope peering through.

The multi-instrumentalist fuses piano, keyboards, bass, guitar, and drum programming, along with beautiful, searing cello from Ann Nina, to sculpt edgy, shadowy music that reflects de Salem's perceptions of the disharmony that exists between Earth and its inhabitants.

The set opens with "Metropolitan," a solemn soundtrack to life in the city, with police sirens wailing quietly in the background. Reflective pieces like "Sentimental Steps" and "Remind" are sentimental without being sappy.

The three most solid tracks on the album, "Emergency Talking," "Tribal Interlude," and "Something Getting Wrong," are representative of de Salem's overall sound, which is industrial and progressive yet lush and melodic, with a beat that is infectious but not bouncy.

"Emergency Talking" starts with a pensive theme that increases in intensity, and "Something Getting Wrong" fleshes de Salem's jazz-rock fusion sound to its fullest. "Tribal Interlude" is the most gripping of the three and as a result the album's most formidable and probing track, propelled primarily by pulsating, rhythmic percussion in lockstep with equally pulsating, rhythmic bass notes, resulting in an entrancing, ritualistic, cinematic sound.

De Salem has created a compelling musical vista, both grand and subtle, that is riveting from beginning to end.

Although the translation of the album's title into English by Swiss musician and human rights activist Michael de Salem may create an enigmatic air, his motivation as a recording artist is perfectly clear: in his view, we face a global crisis that can only be remedied by a major shift in human consciousness - and for him, music is one key to effecting that change. Although his music is totally instrumental, Michael composed it with the hope that it "will gift the imagination with a contemplative melodic platform to awaken deeply rooted memories and emotions while opening the mind to freedom of expression." There is definitely a lot of emotional content in his ambient electronic music. In fact, a few words I would use to describe it would be "dramatic", "evocative", and "cinematic". Like so much of Michael's music with its wonderful texture and dynamics, I could easily envision it being used in a film soundtrack. Keyboards, ranging from synthesizers to acoustic piano, play a prominent role in the creation of these soundscapes, along with cello, drums, and guitar, which is used sparingly yet effectively. A few of songs on the album inhabited somewhat similar territory as the music of Patrick O'Hearn. Interesting diversity exists from one song to the next over the course of the CD, yet there is a presence and sonic signature that he brings to his music, which makes it feel like a cohesive body of work.
