What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

Clearlight US Review

When I first started to listen to the CD Impressionist Symphony by Clearlight, I didn’t think I was going to like it. The beginning starts off with some soft piano and just thought the album was going to kind of bore me. While its not a very heavy it did put me in a good mood.

I decided I’d listen to it while I was making dinner and after the first bit Impressionist Symphony picked up a little bit, adding in some nice electric guitar a violin. It kind of reminds me of Trans Siberian Orchestra but a little softer with more classical and jazz style influences. The guitar was more of a background instrument but it blended really well with everything else. 

Clearlight did a really good job on this album though I think some of the synth effects could have not been used it was still really nice and relaxing to listen to.
