The nine short length tracks cover mixed musical ground from 80s style Tangerine Dream to deeply atmospheric ambience. Above all is the tinge of experimental well conceived music.
There is a gem of an album in there that crosses the boundaries of trance and global ambient styling. A recommended listening experience especially for late nights.
The album contains previously unreleased material recorded by INDRA many years ago. It makes us plunge into the hidden world of sensuality in its purest form.
This album is a first-rate Teutonic sound fest for fans of Klaus Schulze and the like!
Volume 2 sees a more contemporary feel and it is definitely one of INDRA’s most up tempo hard edged work. These two albums (THE CALL OF SHIVA – vol.1 and THE CALL OF SHIVA – vol.2) can be definitely recommended as the ideal starting point (along with ECHO IN TIME) for those wishing to mine the vast riches of INDRA’s work.
SIGNS is a melodic synth album that blends several influences into a cohesive whole – influences that cover a wide spectrum of electronic music, past and present. There’s space music, a touch of Vangelis, a touch of Jarre, and some Enigma. An album which takes us by surprise with its plurality of genres! From the classic Berlin School, passing through meditative and ambiental, to the new Berlin School, the music imprints the feeling and desire to listen to it again and again.
The album gather four distinct parts: spacey, dance/techno, meditative and Berlin School style. A complex and very interesting approach.
