A new and brilliant collaborative work between two
excellent German synthesists, Detlef Keller and Mario Schonwalder, well

collaboration with other musicians.
The album includes three
pieces: "Long Distances" (26:33), "Metropolis (41:11) and "September
Moods" (7:10). The first and the last ones were recorded some years ago.

"Metropolis" starts slow and later adds a medium speed rhythmic basis that
later leads into a frantic rhythm. Throughout this suite, there is a
succession of ethereal melodies, wrapped into unearthly or futuristic
This definitely is an album that will no doubt appeal
to the followers of Space Music, and it will also attract the attention of
those who are keen on experiencing new sensations with music.
