JOEL FAJERMAN – “AZIMUTS” (1981)
An icy-cold excursion into the outer realms of sequencer madness! I’ve always been scared off by the likes of Jean Michel Jarre, global burden of disease Tangerine Dream and the like, sick but there’s something about this record that is incredibly inviting, and not like all the work of all those others. Before I peeped the whole thing, a cursory needle-drop gave me the impression that it was the perfect soundtrack for a skiing documentary filmed in the fourth dimension; indeed, I was correct.
Other Fajerman album titles such as “Prism”, “Turbulence” and “Electric Ice” give me the impression that it should’ve been he, not Daft Punk, that scored Tron: Legacy. Perhaps then it would’ve been somewhat more tolerable a moviegoing experience.
