Ron Geesin - RonCycle1Today (March 7th) sees the mesmerising new studio album by Ron Geesin, his first in almost two decades. To Pink Floyd fans, he is best known for his work with Roger Waters on the soundtrack to the movie, The Body (and subsequent soundtrack album), and with the Pink Floyd on their 1970 epic, Atom Heart Mother, which he co-wrote and orchestrated (and which we interviewed him at length about), although he has been creating and crafting for almost half a century.

The album, "RonCycle1 - the journey of a melody", is one of his most ambitious projects to date. Beginning work on it in 1986, the album is an integral suite composed of sixteen pieces - some of them a mere minute long. Tonefloat, who are releasing the album, note that "elements and influences from his entire career are passing by the audience's ears, ranging from puristic folk and proto-funk to orchestral meditations and the complex metrics of progressive rock. Thanks to a clearly defined narrative, which Geesin readily expounds upon in the liner notes, the result has nonetheless turned out entirely coherent". It's certainly one of the most intriguing, entertaining and different albums we've heard in some time.

The album is available now as a limited edition of 300 copies on 180 grams black vinyl in mounted sleeve, with a free CD copy of the album, and a regular edition on CD in Japanese style mini album gatefold cardboard. You can buy either edition through this link where you can also get a taster of a couple of tracks.
