Following "Celestial Movements" (2009) and "Beyond The Deep" (2010), Bernd Kistenmacher concludes his "Trilogy of the Universe" with "Antimatter". Thematically, we are dealing here with the question of the Big Bang as the origin of all existence, which, as is well known, is also followed by the largest particle accelerator in the world (the LHC of CERN near Geneva). And so Kistenmacher's musical meditations circle around questions about the aesthetics of the universe, the cycle of things and ultimately also the mysterious attraction between people. The music is as exciting as a documentary on the Discovery Channel. "Rising" and "Caverns Of Knowledge" are big orchestral in the best sense of the word. You can hear machines snorting at "Injection". "Acceleration" and "Filling The Emptiness" have this atmospheric something like Vangelis pieces, as if you were rowing on cosmic galleys or sitting in the lonely dinghy. Synthesizers push themselves forward as soloists every now and then. Alienated voices of scientists ghosting through space. Exciting head cinema and a wealth of detail on an odyssey in space.
