The musical career of keyboardist Ray Bach began in 1989 with the album The Book Of Movie Scores,
released in 1991 on the label IC / Digit. Soon followed his second album The
Crossover (1992). When Ray asked me to assemble the songs for
Lincoln Park - The Best Of Freeze Frame
and to write the liner notes, I insisted to include songs from the
beginning of his period of creation.
My assumption Ray would pull copies of the early CDs, turned out
to be wrong. Instead he studied the original Master tapes to
these tapes. He went into his archive and found an astonishing
amount of final mixes, demos, multi track tapes and discs with
After carefully remastering the old tapes or new mixing the
tracks, the result is The Lost Book Of Moviescores (2016).
Instrumental, new age, film music, ambient music and no
jazz at all. Enter The Wave Again has the freshness of his early years.
Ray has developed his unique identity working out the special power
The Arbitrary Dimension testifies his prowess with a
stunning blend of various synths and layers. Sounds, we know from
the 90's by Stevie Winwood's Arc Of A Diver, presented in a
new context and a flawless performance.
Leaving The Wave
allures in harmonic depth of synth waves.
A momentum of sounds.
Now & Then
brings an Asian note into foreground with a
complete orchestral arrangement in full blossom. The Inner
Clockwork is ticking and there is no escape. Textured waves are
flooding over the listener. A Samurai's Dream deserves the
attribute beautiful in a complex wave structure. Cloudy Skies
describes in all tones the wide field of view.
is a mountain range in the region
of Andalucía and also the name of a mountain range in the Western
United States. Ray does not transform the majestic of these regions
in to tones but is lost in a dream melody. With more than nine
minutes a long dream.
Hypnotica lives from the tension between pizzicato
and long distance tones.
Under The Surface In The Deep Blue Sea
reminds of The Big Blue Overture by Eric Serra. Kings And
Gods tends with its opulent and pompous grandiose character to
film music. The harmonious synergy of Morning Star
transforms human emotions into romantic vibrations.
The Lost Book Of Movie Score joins
seamlessly with the first works of Ray Bach and forms a link between
his first two albums. A must for friends of new age and ambient
