The fusion of pure electronic music and rock instrumentation yielded some fine results, like Heldon, for instance. Michael is ex-Nine Days Wonder, and on his first solo albums he crafts that mix of pure synth based music with rock instrumentation here and there, augmenting the sound palette. It's interesting, but it lacks tension, and the melodies are too "nice". Maybe it's just because I usually associate this kind of emusic/rock crossover with more "evil" sounds, like the Heldon I mentioned before... Anyway, this is good stuff, and seems to be available on CD. 10/15.
9 Feb 2006, 05:42 by ProgbearWintergarden was the project formed by ex-Nine Days Wonder members Walter Seyffer and Bernd Unger. A “singer-songwriter duo”, as Seyffer himself described the project in an interview. They released three albums under the Wintergarden moniker (though the third album was only released posthumously, on the Offers label).
That said, they’re actually quite underrated. It’s not daring prog-rock stuff like the best of the 9DW stuff, but I do think it builds/improves on the conceptual pop-rock sound they were essaying with Sonnet To Billy Frost. The songs are well-written and the vocal harmonies are to die for. Production by Walter Quintus is first-rate.
There’s a folkie-country influence weaving in and out from time to time (as on “The lady on a one-pound note” and “Khaki eyes”). There are also splendid unexpected moments, like the cello solo on “Blame it on these endless nights”.
So, it’s unlikely to satisfy the average fan of the first 9DW album, but it’s good for what it is.
