Albums

Signatures I. ft. Zsolt Galántai (2013)

"This is a merging of instrumental electronic music and prog rock with a touch of metal at times.. all with crazy time signatures" - Bruce Gall, ARFM
"Conventions are stretched, twisted or just totally thrown away, but the album has continuity, a strong melodic core, time changes, crunching and then soaring guitars, driving rhythms, for once I think that this is a collection of tunes that really does have something for everybody" - Paul Baker (ARFM Soundscapes), Classic Rock Society Magazine Issue 194 (March/April 2013)
"Meiner Meinung nach ist Computerchemist mit „Signatures“ ein sehr unterhaltsames und vielseitiges Werk gelungen. Wer von Dave Pearson schon ältere Alben kennt, dem dürfte auch dieses gefallen. Für Freunde des ProgRock ist es ohnehin empfehlenswert." - Andreas Pawlowski, Schallwende Magazine, May 2013
“Huge, exhilarating, face-melting gobs of prog-fueled joy. Come and get it.” – John Shanahan, Hypnagogue
"... the latest Computerchemist masterpiece!" - Kristian Persson, Tangram's Music Blog
"..excellent drumming, tasty sequencer work, very interesting bass lines and some excellent and well placed guitar work.. Highly recommended!" - Greg Allen, author Klaus Schulze: Electronic Music Legend
"Production is first class... a musical whirlwind of meaty real drumming.. strong powerful guitar chords and sequencing. . For more adventurous progressive EM fans, hang on to your seats and enjoy the ride." - Mick Garlick, Sequences Magazine
"Well executed, uplifting, yet laid back Berlin-influenced electronic music, with some Prog and jazz-rock overtones, intricate but tasteful drumming and some very interesting guitar work. Will be getting regular spins here at Progzilla Towers!" - Cliff Pearson, Progzilla Magazine
"Epische" - Stefan Erbe, empulsiv.de

Music for Earthquakes (2011)

“This is music research at its finest, exactly what electronic music should be about.” – TJ Newton
“A fine piece of work… very meditative and minimalist” – Miklós Maros, composer

Aqual Measure (2009)

“Surging sequences, exotic sonic embellishments and enchanting melodies. If all the old names on the scene have become a bit stale by now, then Computerchemist will offer you a breath of fresh air musically.” – Archie Patterson, Eurock.com
“A combination of keyboard music and drums, live guitar and over 60 minutes of music that crosses the boundaries of certain boundaries of music that nobody thought could have been breached” – Bruce Gall, ARFM

“Mirage will grab sequencer fans from the get-go with its mesmerizing loops” – Phil Derby, Electroambient Space

“Sweeping electronic washes invade your consciousness and take you to the edge of universes you didn’t even know existed.” – Rotcod Zzaj (a.k.a. Dick Metcalfe), IMPROVIJAZZATION Nation [More...]



Landform (2008)

“I think that while Computerchemist’s style can easily remind one of Tangerine Dream, his style is unique, refreshing and all his own – a real change from the typical EM sound but yet retaining several of its best ingredients.” – Greg Allen, author of Klaus Schulze : Electronic Music Legend
“This is a Hypnagogue Highly Recommended CD, especially if you like your music with a touch of old-school style” – John Shanahan, Hypnagogue
“Stark auch Cave search mit einer Mischung aus sehr symphonischen Parts und einer gelegentlichen Floyd-Stimmung (hier werde ich speziell ein wenig an ‘Careful with that axe, Eugene’ erinnert).” – Jürgen Meurer, Progressive Newsletter
“Some excellent compositions that will absorb your head, spin it around about 100 times & eject you into the other side of the wormhole in etherspace that LANDFORM creates for your mind.” – Rotcod Zzaj (a.k.a. Dick Metcalfe),
IMPROVIJAZZATION Nation “A real treat for fans of sequencer-based music.” – Artemi Pugachov, Encyclopedia of Electronic Music [More...]

“This is EM with a strong Rock edge.” – Artemi Pugachov, Encyclopedia of Electronic Music

Atmospheric (2006)

“A batch of beat-and-melody driven joyrides that are a pleasure to listen to” – John Shanahan, Hypnagogue
“Lots of detail and colour. Keep it flowing.” – Steve Jolliffe, ex-Tangerine Dream, Solo Musician
“Aber er bedient auch bisweilen leicht verzerrte Gitarren, was mich auch mal an Edgar Froese, Ashra oder Heldon erinnert.” – Jürgen Meurer, Progressive Newsletter
“Atmospheric is a nice EM album that’s well worth checking out.” – Artemi Pugachov, Encyclopedia of Electronic Music
“Uplifting and infectious, the tunes are tastefully crafted to entertain while banishing all doldrums.” – Matt Howarth, Sonic Curiosity [More...]
