Judging from the cover (if the picture on the post card/flyer is the cover) View from a Red Train will be another result of Edgar's obsession with Salvador Dalí, so it might be in the vein of Dalinetopia.
I've never really understood what TD's and Edgar's music has got to do with Salvador Dalí, though. In my opinion the only Daliesque releases were Electronic Meditation and, to a certain degree, Alpha Centauri.



my opinion:

Edgar met dali, the ones played at Dali's home.....Edgar is an artist.....

now I remember a quotation from EF that stated that he (and TD) were attempting to do in music what Avida Dollars did in art....I always took this to mean the realisation of our subconscious dreams and nightmares made tangible through media...be it music, art or cookery.....

for me surrealism is manifested through TD and EFs music, more so the further back you travel..The music of the pink and virgin years can indeed be listened to as 'surrealist'...as the soundscapes, artwork and intent all eminate dreams and unreality.

If I wanted to give an example of TD's surrealism, I need only point to ZEIT or Rubycon or Metaphor or, or........as these are at the edge of the absurd or at the centre of surrealist mind melting music, created by a true artistic genius.

I as BM enjoy surrealism, absurdist art, DADA and the paintings of Louis Wain


BM leaves this forum for 1 hour to consider the transient nature of ART and TIME and breakfast. :arrow:


BM, hello matey!!!!,this is the first time I've seen you since the new forum began, How are you? Good to see you!!!

Very interested to see what direction this album takes. For some reason I'm expecting it to be pared down with some loss of tempo. Time will tell.

Out of interest Hobo why do you think so? I was expecting Dalinetopia to be more like this but was pleasantly surprised at how it turned out.

It's just a hunch based on the influence Thorsten seems to have had on Edgar. I think it will lead to more subtle percussion, with greater emphasis on melody. It's only a guess and time might well prove me wrong.

Indeed I also did like Dalinetopia. We are getting spoiled this year with all those new releases.

sound normal, as the anniversary of anniversaries.

This should be like a follow up to last years Dalinetopia but is this the solo project we have heard about earlier where mathematics & Science was mentioned so juding by the cover artwork we should expect the unexpected
Looking forward to this one...

:D 8) :!: :arrow: :idea: 8) Geoff
