The Vance Orchestra is in fact a duo of two dutch musicians, 'a myth to be cherished' and a step into space at once. Their releases are hard to find, spread over obscure and very small lables, beautiful designed and highly original.
They perform the kind of deep listening music one can search for an eternity without a clue where to begin. This is the first full-length album I could get hold of; 6 pieces in over 70 minutes, the shortest "Which Way To The Surface ?" clocks in at 8.32, the longest one "Listening In Disbelief" at a proud 19.03 mark, packed in a fold-out miniature album sleeve with an additional booklet full of illustrations and details.
All of the tracks share a constant sound development and evolution, mainly electronically produced but with some added vocal snippets and bass lines.
As the artwork and the titles suggests, these are soundtracks for travelling in time and space or a fictious mission in an alternative reality. Vance Orchestra are aural landscape shapers in a league of their own, just vaguely comparable to zoviet france. The mood setting is mainly calm and atmospheric, besides "Trying To Stop The Pain" which has a disturbing quality that seems to go on for too long.
When everything's shut down late at night or in the early morning hours - whenever a concentrated listening is possible 'The E Emission' won't let one unaltered; Waves of memories and impressions pass on by and it's quite easy to get lost in thoughts while this music feeds the subconscious permanently.
There is a love for details and a constructive force behind it which make this CDR a timeless treasure and pleasure.
