René Splinter - "Transit Realities"  'Transit Realities' deals about journeys through both the real world and the virtual equivalent. Traveling within dreams and metropolitan cities, over mountains, through rivers and digitally rendered landscapes. A symphonic soundscape painting of transits between reality and the imaginary world.   'Transit Realities' was originally recorded during 1992 and 1993. After the mixing was complete late 1993, these tracks ended up in archives. It was only considered as an experiment on how to realize dreams into reality, by converting the music I dreamt of into real audible sound. And I basically ended up making music that I wanted to hear myself.  It was only a few years from now, many years after the recordings, that I re-discovered the tracks and realized that there might be a possibility I would not be the only person wanting to listen to such music.  So, I decided to dust off the tapes, transfer the original multi-tracks into the digital world and to rework the mix with current technology in order to gain more depth and dynamics, but maintaining the original atmosphere as much as possible, or even improving it slightly.   When finished, I felt that I could revisit my journeys again. And this time I'd like to invite you to join me. 

Hopefully, you'll like it as much as I have enjoyed making it.

Stephan Schelle, Februar 2010: Bernd Moonbooter Scholl hat, seit er sein MellowJet Label aus der Taufe gehoben hat, schon so manchen Neuling entdeckt bzw. ihm eine Plattform gegeben. Dabei hat er immer ein gutes Händchen und ein Gespür für gute Musik bewiesen. Mit René Splinter kommt ein für mich wieder neuer Name ins Spiel, der Anfang 2010 auf MellowJet das Album Transit Realities in einem Amaray-Case herausbringt und der eben diesen Standard hält. René der aus den Niederlanden stammt, interessiert sich seit 1977 für elektronische Musik, seit ihm Jean Michel Jarres Oxygene über den Weg lief. Obwohl er bereits zwei Alben veröffentlichte, ist mir sein Name und seine Musik bisher nicht über den Weg gelaufen. Die Musik auf Transit Realities ist zwischen 1992 und 2009 entstanden. Die CD ist in zwei Parts unterteilt. Part eins heißt Alaska und umfasst sechs Stücke, die aber alle nahtlos ineinander übergehen, so dass man hier durchaus von einer Suite sprechen kann. Part zwei nennt sich Metropolitan und bietet vier weitere Stücke ebenfalls in zusammenhängender Form. Auf Alaska, dessen einzelne Stücke Laufzeiten von 1:44 bis 12:40 Minuten aufweisen, bietet Musik im Stile von Tangerine Dream der 80er und 90er Phase. Aber auch Alan Parsons oder Geoff Downes (The Light Project) scheinen in einzelnen Abschnitten durchzuscheinen (man höre nur Alatna River). Denali, das den Reigen von Alaska beginnt, bietet darüber hinaus symphonische Elektronikmusik, die dem Hörer das Gefühl eines Soundtracks geben. Doch schnell schälen sich die typischen stilistischen Elemente aus den Stücken heraus, die an Tangerine Dream erinnern. Ob es die typischen Sequenzerrhythmen, das programmierte Schlagzeug oder die Klangfarben sind, vieles erinnert an die großen Berliner. Auch wenn die Nähe zu Tangerine Dream sehr eng ist, so schafft es René doch eine gute Atmosphäre zu schaffen. Er hat das Konzept perfekt umgesetzt und man möchte fast sagen, dass es sich hier um ein Album handelt, das Tangerine Dream nie gemacht haben. Vor allem die Melodiebögen können bezaubern und fesseln, so wie es die Musik von TD auch vermag/vermochte. Das was schon auf den Alaska-Zyklus zutraf, führt René auch bei Metropolitan fort. Man ist der Auffassung tatsächlich ein verschollenes Album von Tangerine Dream zu hören. Da ich die Musik von Tangerine Dream mag, so liegen die Stücke ganz auf meiner Wellenlänge. Wer auf die TDs Musik der 80er und Anfang der 90er steht, der wird mit diesem Album voll auf seine Kosten kommen. Ich werde die Stücke noch mehrfach hören und hoffe, das René sein Schatzkästlein weiter öffnet um noch mehr dieser herrlichen Musik der Öffentlichkeit zu präsentieren.

Kristian Persson / Sweden: Rene Splinter is perhaps not that big/known in the EM 'scene'. Not that many actually knows about this guy and his music. But he has released a couple of Berlin School 80's gems already, and this is his 3rd and latest CD, and it's a cracking good one! A few of the tracks on this CD has already seen the light of day on his previous CD 'Dreaming Angels', but they weren't in their full length, the way they were supposed to be heard. A couple of examples are 'Bahnhof Zoo' and 'The Big Star' in which are not only in their full length here, but they also sound quite different to the verisons found on the CD 'Dreaming Angels'. Anyway....on with the review. 'Denali' opens up in a highly infectious, cinematic and melodic way with drums and piano, but later a subtle sequence emerge in the mix and builds the track in great harmony. A nice opener, but too short. Next is 'Kenai'. This track follows up the 1st with some awe inspiring and highly melodic structure. It evolves and builds in a lush way with a soft piano and a laid back soft synth lead line, in which creates yet another stunning cinematic track. Too short, but really awesome! 'Alantna River' continues with a heavy, almost bouncy rhythm and a long subtle sequence is building slowly in the background as the track progress through. This is one of the most versatile tracks on the CD and also the longest, and it has everything typical 80's EM is bound to have. Awesome melody, flawless structure and melodic sequencing that literarily cries out with it's infectious sound. In other words, lots of sequencing and melody on this one! 'Berling Glacier' takes us further into the depths of 80's sequencing. This track is featured on 'Dreaming Angels', but under another name, and not as long. It's a bit darker than the other tracks (if I might say), but has some stunning subtle sequencing floating and pulsating in the background, which is also the driving force in this track. The sequencing is followed by a rhythmic beat which is breathing along the lines of the synths. Top notch 80's style EM! 'Snowmobile Race' is following up the previous track with a new solid and Original sounding structure, and showcases lots of great melodic sequencing yet again with some great hooks that simply has to be heard!. Great melody and hooks on this one!. Almost a bit Soundtrack like at times. 'Fairbanks' is a more mellow story. Sounding very much like a typical End Title track from a Film. Short but quite good. It has it's moments with some laid back synth work and a bit of a cinematic touch to it. The second part of the CD is called 'Metropolitan' and is somewhat of another chapter. Let's see. The title track 'Transit Line' punches off with fast paced synth work that really strikes us with it's heavy sequencing. This one builds with lush melody that really is a "in your face" experience. Fans of Arcane will love what this track has to offer. Infectious EM at it's best I'd say! 'Bahnhof Zoo' continues were 'Transit Line' left off, and is slowing down a bit just to surprise you with some tingling sequencing that emerge quietly and subtle in the background. But after a few seconds, both the melody and ambience is taking part again. This track could easily be seen as a "lost" TD track, and would fit perfectly in one of those mid 80's TD Soundtracks. 'Palast' slows the pace down quite a bit. It reminds me of a track in the Firestarter Soundtrack by Tangerine Dream. A subtle, dark and moody lead synth comes to live very slowly as the sequencing progresses through with that typical but yet awesome 80's sequencing sound. Spellbinding melody! 'The Big Star' is yet another track to be found on 'Dreaming Angels', only this time it has lots of more variety added to it. This one starts out with a long moody sequence, which soon meets up with a a distinctive flute sound, and before you know it, the sequencing captures you again with it's infectious 80's style sound that simply doesn't get much better than this!. Sounding very much like a typical Intro to a film from the 80's. It has everything. Top notch sequencing, melody, hooks, structure, rhythm and infectiousness. You name it. A darn good track for lovers of 80's Tangerine Dream! So, the verdict is. If you, just like me, love the early to mid 80's period by Tangerine Dream (ca 82-85), then this is for you. It doesn't get much better than this. I would even go as far and say this is a Masterpiece of it's own! 5 start out of 5 from me! Brilliant!] 2010.
