DOUBLE ALBUM, Vol.1 - A New Age Symphony. Mikhail Chekalin - synthesizers, voice, piano. Recorded 1990-1992.
This ambitious Double CD set offers an encyclopedic sampling of Chekalins eclectic musical approach centered on his philharmonic electronic music approach circa the late 1980s-1990s. The music he created during that era featured an extensive range of styles and genres.
Disc 1, titled A New Age Symphony, is comprised of 11 tracks that run the stylistic gamut from purely electronic to piano concertos and at times a post progressive symphonic rock sound. The fusion of styles and themes he creates offers listeners a distinctly Chekalin conceptual listening experience. His mastery of diverse styles and musical disciplines is at times staggering.
Disc 2, Identifications, is comprised of 18 tracks that demonstrate how Chekalin compositional style that fuses of many disparate musical parts can at times make for a bizarre and completely unique, conceptual whole. Here as on Disc 1, he combines a multitude of music influences: beautiful vocalizations and symphonic arrangements filled with unique synthesized saxophone imitations, hard rock elements, avant-garde jazz rock, rave and hints of techno, along with experimental and bizarre thematic arrangements. In the end, his alchemization of dissimilar sounds paints a vivid and unique sonic tapestry that is distinctive and hangs together beautifully.
