Format: Audio CD
These days based in Hungary, UK composer and musician Dave Pearson have released a number of full length albums over the last few years using the artistic moniker COMPUTERCHEMIST, all of them made available through his own label Terrainflight. The first of these was "Atmospheric", which was unveiled back to 2006.

And it is an aptly named album to my ears. Distinct moods and accessible melodies appear to be the focus throughout, with gentle electronic rhythm and percussion details supplemented by steady drum patterns as the foundation, supplemented by dark and light layers of synths and sounds. Material fairly easy on the mind and ears paired of with constructions of a somewhat more challenging nature without ever reaching a level I'd describe as demanding from a listener point of view.

While we do get treated to compositions sporting slower paced, ambient inserts as well as shifts in intensity and thematic buildups, the majority of the material stays melodic and easy to follow, and whenever alterations do occur they rarely challenge you on any level, instead focusing on maintaining listener interest with smooth transitions and careful use of lead motifs. At least as I experienced this production.

With circulating or repetitive gentle rhythms at heart and smooth, surging and swirling synth textures as key elements, associations go towards the likes of Jean Michel Jarre for the most accessible parts explored while the somewhat more daring and challenging movements inspires associations towards Tangerine Dream first and foremost. Occasional details used also gave me fain notions of early Gary Numan and on one occasion Deep Purple, but if those are accidental or planned I can't really tell. Most likely accidental, but you can never know.

Something new and something old. This is probably the best way to describe this album by Dave Pearson, aka Computerchemist. The album itself is sort of a cross between space-music and progressive rock/electronic. And if you ask me, this is one of the best albums out of the four released so far. It has a completely different feel/approach to it if compared to say; his latest release 'Aqual Measure'. The first track opens up with a hypnotising synthetic sound that soon fades out, and later it fades in to a more upbeat rhytmic palette of sounds, simply just to tease your ears a bit making you want more of the same. Short but good!

Later the track 'Atmospheric' slowly emerge and evolve, showscasing Dave's love for the mid 70's Tangerine Dream sound, with it's slow & soft/melodic beat which soon turns into a inferno of blasting synths that really captivates your ears before you know it!. Here we have the highlight of the album, and it marks Dave at his finest hour as a composer, at least on this album it does. Just brilliant stuff!.'Dominos Lament' picks up where 'Atmospheric' left of, and takes us deeper into the world of wonders. This track is another highlight, with very intelligent production, and it also has a very melodic sound structure to it, a sound that wouldn't be too out of place in a album by 'Gert Emmens'. Great sequencing!. Next track has a more ancient theme to it in the beginning, but quickly turns out to something completely different as it progresses through. Synths and flutes are arranged in great harmony along with drums, and makes this track leaning towards the sound of early Tangerine Dream as we all know it.
