1979 synthesizer madness from my home town of Jacksonville, Florida. Time were the duo of Jack Tamul and Joe Diehl and their sole LP was produced at the behest of The Alexander Breast Planetarium, a place where I spent many a night losing it to their phenomenal laser light shows. Well, that was a good few years after the release of the LP, but this music would be the ideal accompaniment to the psychedelic light show (I mostly remember Rock based shows, Laser Pink Floyd being the best and most popular). Featuring an array of synths and processors like the Arp 2600, Omni, Axxe and Pro DGX sequencers, a Moog, Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 and sequencer, ya know, the kinda thing that tech heads, much more knowledgeable than myself, would freak on, Time Waves really captures the spirit of innovation of the seventies synth age. The fact that it was produced in collaboration with The Planetarium (in Jacksonville, of all places), also speaks of a bygone era.
And the sound? Classic late 70’s, private press, New Age / Kosmische and even a track, The Pawn (posted below), that would have been a perfect cut for an Italian Giallo soundtrack!
These days, Tamul continues his work with synths and computers, http://www.tamul.com/samples.html, and Joe Diehl is writing scores and working as an audio engineer on numerous film and tv projects http://www.joedeihl.com/
Dario Argento would love this
