CD "Gaiatron" by Cosmic Octave Orchestra
Planetary Ambience live at Ricochet Gathering Berlin
The Cosmic Octave Orchestra consists of three knowledgeable adepts and practitioners of cosmically tuned music: Steve Schroyder (Ex Tangerine Dream, Anne Clark Band, Star Sounds Orchestra), Akasha Project und B. Ashra (Robert Templa, B.E.L., Morphon).
The album "Gaiatron" contains the complete concert recordings of Cosmic Octave Orchestra, as performed as part of the „Ricochet Gathering - Electronic Music Festival“ at Berlin Schöneberg Townhall on October 17th, 2010. Like the live performance the CD contains two epic electronic soundscapes in the spirit of the Berlin School of electronic music. The Music is tuned to the mathematical principles of the Cosmic Octave according to musicologist Hans Cousto.
Track 1 "Gaiatron" (30 minutes) utilises the octave-analogue frequencies and tempi of the Earth‘s planetary year, its orbit around the sun.
On Gaiatron the COO was supported by the overtone canto of AlienVoices, Kolja Simon and Felix Mönnich.
Track 2 "Cassinidrive" (38 minutes) is tuned to the octave-analogue tone of the planet Saturn‘s solar orbit.
