Hungarian based project COMPUTERCHEMIST is the creative vehicle of UK composer and musician Dave Pearson, who have released a steady stream of albums using this moniker since 2007. "Signatures II" is, rather unsurprisingly I guess, the companion album to "Signatures I", both albums released in early 2013.

A characteristic trait for all songs on this most recent Computerchemist production is that these aren't compositions in the traditional sense. We're not dealing with creations that have a regular starting point followed by a development to a more or less logical conclusion. Instead these are mood and atmosphere explorations, setting up a distinct mood and exploring it in more or less subtle variations before finding a suitable manner in which to conclude. While not quite as one-dimensional as this description might sound like, those fond of and accustomed to compositions with a traditional development might find this aspect of the CD not quite to their taste.

Apart from that detail, a central feature throughout is the unmistaken influence of Tangerine Dream. Be it in subtle details like gently hammering synth motifs or more dominant thematic details, there's a distinct presence of this highly influential German band running throughout this album. Paired off with quite a few additional tendencies mind you.

Strangeness in 13 features a gentle piano motif that brings Austrian keyboard wizard Gandalf to mind, while Goodbye Moszkva Ter and to a somewhat lesser extent Forgotten Memory does add a certain Hawkwind presence to the proceedings by way of cosmic sounds and longing guitar soloing.
