Editorial Reviews

2011 release from the Electronic artist. The title Tragedy & Geometry is an ambiguous but subtle reference to Melpomene (Muse of Tragedy) and Polyhymnia (Muse of Geometry), or more specifically the collision/overlap of what they invoke. The opening track is also a direct reference to Polyhymnia, Muse of Eloquence, the painting by the French artist Charles Meynier on display at the Cleveland Museum of Art. The album is a treatise on the idea that technology is becoming more disposable as it's becoming more accessible, and how this circumstance has a more evident/direct effect on the interpersonal, i.e. relations, with others in the so-called 'Age of Information.' What results is a gorgeous, flowing, floating world of postkosmische musik, Steve Hauschildt's first widely available release, and his first major statement as a solo artist.

Format: Audio CD
I find it hard to believe that I'm the first to review this album. If you've heard Emeralds then you know what to expect here. If not, then you will be in for a nice treat. Steve's solo effort here is not just "solid" but truly excellent. This genre of music (not sure what others are calling it, but I would call it Melodic Electronic as opposed to Ambient Electronic) is a crowded field right now, however I find myself gravitating to this album as one of the true standouts.

Format: Audio CD
A charmingly subtle debut solo release of meticulous, graceful ambience from member of
Cleveland, Ohio band Emeralds. Dreamy, calming, instrumental electronic soundscapes for
meditation, relaxation and general zoning out. I was watching the wind change the way sunlight
reflected off the leaves outside my window while listening--five minutes later, an hour had
passed and I woke up.... Some similarities to Tangerine Dream, Steve Reich, Windy & Carl.

If you're into downtempo, arpeggios, and sequenced music, buy it now while you can.
It's like candy for your ears.
