"Hydro 2" is a continuation of the album "Hydro", released in the year
2000, which sold 150.000 copies.
The new album reprises some of the
master outlines of its predecessor and offers us a precious collection of
themes of deep electronic music, dominated by melodies ranging from the
romantic, to the majestic and to the unearthly..
Most noteworthy is
the successful use of the palettes of sound. Michel Huygen, the alma mater
of Neuronium, usually designs most of the instrumental sounds that he uses
in his works. For this disc, like he did for its predecessor, he has used
several aquatic sounds, yet – and this is important, not as mere
environmental accompaniment, but rather as full-fledged instruments,
integrating them very skilfully in the music. Among all the sounds that
Huygen uses with great skill, there is one, ghostly and beautiful at the
same time, that is not quite piano, not quite female vocals either.
The music has a great strength and allows the imagination soar free.
