Cremator’s new album title comes from a tale about a sudden, radical shift from a controlling, benevolent, and sterile society to one of individuality and danger ruled by an elite group called the Instrumentality. Now picture the soundtrack circa 1979 by Klaus Schulze and filmed by Jean Painlevé. Flickering images beyond your stars have trapped you in the dark as you recline in your velvet-lined pod whilst arpeggios and synth washes swirl around the ship, returning from the ether, leaving crystal contrails – and that is just the opening sequence.

Being a worshipper of Tangerine Dream’s “Virgin years”, and having consumed the 38’ of “Ricochet” to exhaustion, this was like finding water in the desert. It’s a strange listening experience, similar in a way to Syn; still I’m so grateful to CG, and this goes for all their discography, which I’m sure I’ll consume to exhaustion. Mortimer Potts
