Time Is The Key - Pierre Moerlen's Gong. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей. In Loving Memory of Pierre Moerlen. Full booklet is on the video screen. P & C 1979 P. dr, vibes, marimba, perc. Hansford is the Key is the fourth album by Pierre Moerlen's Gong. It was released in late 1979. The instrumental Time Is the Key ushers Moerlen's Gong into the new age. A lighter version of their previous release, Downwind, the band plays mostly progressive rock-based compositions with a drastically different personnel. Peter Lemer's keys, coupled with the sound of vibes and electravibe in particular, give the music a generic, new age sound at times. Hanny Rowe is a prominent figure on most of the cuts, his playing being one of the most memorable aspects of this album. Gong never had such a strong bassist - their music never stressed it - but Rowe is up front here, displaying. Listen album. Pierre Moerlen's Gong. Pierre Moerlen's Gong albums.

Second album under Moerlen's name, Time Is The Key is a controversial album because it shows that the 80's are very much behind the corner. Indeed compared tp Downwind, PM's G certainly changed their sound and also their line-up bro Benoit is gone as is Gausse, but returning to the fold from Expresso II are Lozaga guitars and Lemer keyboards and the sound and songwriting on TITK don't have a 70's feel, but a much more synthesised 80's production. And those who read me regularly know that this is no good news. A bit like the 80's version of Mahavishnu. Complete sua coleção de Pierre Moerlen's Gong.
