computerchemist is the ongoing solo project of dave pearson, who lives in the west midlands, england. dave has played in, on and around bands for over 25 years, strongly influenced from the likes of such notable berlin school performers as tangerine dream and klaus schulze, his musical output is as strong today as it was in the beginning. dave has been vegetarian since 1993, and hasn''t looked back since.
in dave''s words: “the title track “atmospheric” was inspired directly from the recordings of the cluster-2 spacecraft, which listen to the earth''s magnetic fields, translating the raw energy of particle impacts from the magnetosphere into audio making a truly ethereal sound. this research was performed by prof. gurnett at the university of iowa, who has very kindly given me permission to use those sounds, which you can hear interwoven at the start, middle and end of the piece. why did I do it? well, when browsing cyberspace sometimes you come across something which truly moves you... and the fact that something as beautiful as the aurora could make music - literally out of thin air - inspiring me to write "atmospheric", it would have felt wrong to have missed it out :)
this album is a departure from my older work in that it is the first completely virtual album – there are no “real” synths or drums in this, they are all virtual instruments within cubase. only the guitars are real, everything else exists only in the mind of the computer.”
this album is a tribute to those pioneers of the berlin school from the 70''s, but from a fresh perspective; dave brings those early sounds into a modern, up-to-date and vibrant context. each track evokes a different atmosphere and story to tell, through the universal medium of music.
some comments from myspace:
"Flight of ''F''". It''s really lovely ''n'' floaty ''n'' psychedelic. I like the flutey noise on it.
Flight of "F" great sequence work...
"Marshfire" - superb track again!!! It''s like listening to two different eras of TD - early Kosmiche and then "Dream Mixes"! A great blend of synth soundscapes!
Crumbs Mr Pearson, you''re more TD than TD! Ah, reminds me of the old days, in a nice way. I''ll bet you''re even hiding microscopic pictures of your offspring wearing silly hats in your sleeve art!
"Tribalibal"! Certainly evokes great memories of TD of old - and glad you dusted off the mellotron as well!
You''ve got some heavy duty chemicals mixed together in your music on here, GREAT tracks !!!
Many blessings to you and your incredible compositions....................
Still loving your work, especially Atmospheric. ...I could''ve sworn there were ''lost'' tracks from Exit, Tangram, White Eagle and Force Majeure in there somewhere, marvellous.
Shahrazad is simply gorgeous...thanks! Love and light..
Loving Shahrazad, particularly the Mellotron parts, grotty Hammond and unsettlingly side-chained cymbals.
Wow, man! Your music is really great! :) :) I like it very much! :) Superb stuff.
