Cosmo Frequency is unique and inspiring. The soundtracks are relaxing and unlike anything I have ever heard. With layers of synthesizers, native flute, funky piano, and even dance beats, Cosmo Frequency brings a whole new level to New Age music. I am very happy with this CD. It is beautifully mastered and mixed, with upbeat harmonies. When I listen to the tracks, I feel uplifted. Each song is equally beautiful, which is quite rare for an album, and I can honestly say I love every piece. It is hard for me to even pick which track is my favorite, but I will touch on a few that really stand out to me. Apollo Skies is exquisite and reminds me of a voyage through space. The Gift could be well suited for an Olympic theme song with its inspiring trumpets. Chillaxin has a mid-tempo rhythm with haunting vocals. The dance beat in Classic Story Light Years Away reminds me of a time warp. I visualize the rich colors of a setting sun when I listen to Horizon. Canyon Chant takes me on a scenic hike through the mountains. World of Light has a dreamy melody and inspirational lyrics. The soothing sound of Winter Solstice would be perfect to listen to while getting a facial or a massage. If you like Vangelis, you will love Cosmo Frequency. I can't wait for their next album.

COSMO FREQUENCY is a new group (their debut CD is called Soundtrack to Life) that creates new age music, space music and even some EDM (electronic dance music) inspired by the sounds emanating from all parts of the universe. This group combines the talents of keyboardists and tech-wizards Paul Martinson and Brent Vincent (with occasional vocals by Lisa Wegener).

Paul and Brent both started creating original music at a young age, and both became adept at utilizing electronic keyboards, synthesizers, sequencers and computers to create their own music. Martinson was a member of a new age music recording group while Vincent pursued a career in DJ-live-mixing at dance clubs. They shared their music with each other as school children, lost track of each other for more than two decades, reconnected via the Internet, felt they were on the same frequency and began working together again on this musical project.

This is a strong, eclectic new recording. All the sounds on the album seem to come from synths or samplers or some electronic source, but they are used in a variety of inventive ways, not only sounding like actual synthesizers, but also capturing the sounds of a piano or trumpet and other instruments. The synth-playing is outstanding and the rhythms are mesmerizing. There is an incredible energy to the CD, far beyond what you get from most new age music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review excerpt from Music and Media Focus December 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD
The debut album by Cosmo Frequency, "Soundtrack to Life," like life itself, is diverse and includes a variety of interesting elements and musical styles. The songs range from relaxed ambient excursions, to upbeat electronic grooves, and some mid-tempo pieces in between. Instrumentation includes synthesizers, Native flute, drums, bass, trumpet, flugelhorn, electric guitars, piano, percussion, background singing, and much more. Paul Martinson and Brent Vincent are the principle members of the group, which also includes lovely ethereal vocals by Lisa Wegener on some of the tracks.

A track called "The Gift," begins with a percolating synthesizer sequence in the style of Vangelis, Tangerine Dream, or Jean Michel Jarre. The Electronic Wind Instrument (EWI) plays a trumpet-like part as orchestral elements and the sound of a solar wind are added to the mix creating a grand cinematic air. One of the things I appreciated most about this song and a number of their compositions is the way they incorporated the analog-style of sequencing heard in many classic electronic music albums and put their own spin on it with the layers and effects they added to it. Brent Vincent's background as a club DJ is clearly heard on "Classic Story (Light Years Away)." After a brief symphonic intro, synth bass and four on the floor drums propel this upbeat tune into the stratosphere as a bubbly sequencer adds to the momentum on this danceable track with classical influences. On a track entitled "Canyon Chant," that we get to hear another side of Cosmo Frequency that is more laid back. Although the sounds of Native flute and tribal drumming bring an earthy ambience, there are still enough electronic elements for this song to fit comfortably into the style of the album.
