Stefan / THE SILICON SCIENTIST is one of Germany’s most talented contemporary composers of electronic pop music and taking into account that his time for music is rather limited and that his efforts in playing and finalizing the debut album with SONNENBRANDT in 2008 also took away much of his time for his solo project, his high quality output on all fronts is outstanding.
With “Poly” he proves his continuous ability to write substantial and timeless melancholic electropop and electronic wave songs while most of the album’s sounds have been generated on the wonderful Polymoog synthesisers, hence the title! “Silicon Beach” shows the Polymoog’s great versatility to even create lovely South American flute sounds along the all analogue warm and dark synth sounds. On “Meltdown”, fans of The Cure’s Disintegration album will almost get a heart attack from joy – what a wonderful track with real bass and acoustic guitar accompaniment! The album versions of "Oceans of Green" and "Lost City" are reworked and remixed versions of the tracks previously released on the “Colourblind EP”.
This time Anna and THE SILICON SCIENTIST are the CD "Bookmarks II" to all copies which is definitely more than just a bonus: it contains 72 minutes of outtakes from the "Poly" recording sessions, tracks from samplers, early mixes of tracks from the previous album and tracks from the very first THE SILICON SCIENTIST album "Inselwinter" which was never released.
