DiN32 - Shade by Parallel Worlds
Release date 23rd March 2009

Shade is the studio album follow-up to Obsessive Surrealism (DiN26 - 2007) and is the fifth CD release by Parallel Worlds (the main musical project of Greek electronic musician Bakis Sirros).

Parallel Worlds employ a vast arsenal of both vintage and modern analogue modular synthesisers with extensive use of classic sequencing techniques to produce a sonic world that combines modern electronica and ambient music styles with the feel of retro electronic music. His attention to detail is astonishing and his careful sculpting of sounds and textures produce an organic, ever evolving atmosphere full of half glimpsed meanings and subdued emotions. The purely electronic rhythms and beats seem to have a life of their own and showcase a musician who is a virtuoso with these types of instruments that are the antithesis of the quick fix pick-a-preset mind set of much of todays society. Musically he likes to explore various states of mind, no doubt influenced by his medical background and this adds a tension and darkness to his compositions that are punctuated by disarmingly simple and wistful melodies.

With Shade Parallel Worlds show a musical maturity and command of sonic atmospherics that takes the music on a journey, moving through dreams and shades, aiming for the light.

more great comments/reviews:


from Alio Die (www.aliodie.com):

"I just got your new album and I'm listening to it, and again it is
great!!!!!!! as usual and more than usual!
Great electronic music, your peculiar liquid rhythms and unique analogue
sounds, are so meticulously assorted together... your dreamy cocktail of
vitality, organic with a slight subtle nostalgia, have no comparison
with others.. it is your personal style, and I like it !
You have a strong passion, and a great ability, I hope you'll get the
acknowledgment you deserve Smile
Stefano/Alio Die"
---------------------------------------------

from Dagheisha.com Italian webmag:
http://www.dagheisha.com/music_section/cd.asp?idus=3804

and the automatic google translation:
"I follow the work of Bakis Sirros for several years and what has always impressed me in its search of music is the absolute ability to give a romantic touch and obsessive use of modern instrumentation and analog synthesizers particularly like the Doepfer Modular A100 whose supporter. 'Shade' is the fifth studio work of Parallel Worlds and has the task of overcoming the results achieved from 'Obsessive Surrealism'. When you have listened carefully the album may be said that the last two episodes of the discography of the Greeks are very different. The first had a capacity for implementation and visually stunning in its notes could really portray your dreams or the concerns about today's society and its ailments. In this' Shade 'instead Siros that has left its melodic caresses turned its attentions to a fabric more ambient and less structured than in the past. 'Entities' and' A Moment Frozen 'liberate the mind before the fact and change everything around the machines to take possession of the universe. In a context so overwhelming the delicate chimes of 'Shade' may appear as small lights of hope but also evil ghigni of those who have discovered the most subtle to perpetuate pain. I can not choose then. Both 'Obsessive Surrealism' and 'Shade' are two shades of surrealism electronic Parallel Worlds and the only certainty is that Bakis Sirros remains one of the most farsighted of the alternative electronic scene."
