May 5th 2006 Esper team interview REVISITED!
I`m proud to present to you the re-edited version of the Esper interview. A warm hearted thank you to the `unknown` Esper production guys who kindly arranged to answer my questions. If someone could obtain the background noises to Rambo - First blood, would you want a copy? personally i wouldn`t give it the time of day. But listening to a bit of `raw` Vangelis seems to hit the mark for me. To say that the Esper production team are no better than you or me, would be an unfair statement. Never before have i seen a better example of mere aficionados producing a product that any software/hardware or music distributor would be envious of. Perhaps this small article can be a kick up the backside to production companies world over, to release the extras that the consumer wants?? esper feature here

October 29th 05 Stephen Parsick - Hoellenengel
Its not often in my life that i ever get a chance to shout or cheer with joy, other than when i won a jackpot from my local arcade, or when my local football team Brighton & Hove Albion, were granted the right to build a new stadium. But something arrived from Werther, Germany this morning, that absoultly blew the competition away. It was a CD from a young budding musicial, Stephen Parsick. Imagine what would happen if a Blade Runner sequel was made. What would the music score sound like? well, as I write this report, im listening to the CD, track 4 - die Burg. I can almost hear, or I am almost reminded of Vangelis, Lustmord, Even ludwig Van. hopefully you will all aggree, a true masterpiece. you can contact Stephen through his website, to order the CD.. The full report on his music can be found HERE
