'TIME & TIDE' : 14 tracks - length 86'50

"Oasis Gardens" is a beautiful music piece of ambiences where we are dreaming eyes wide opened on the slow orchestrations which hide a delicate dreamy piano. As everywhere in “Time and Tide”, the orchestrations are the core of the music and they melt within the rhythms and moods. And the impact is much richer with this elvish voice which bewitches us most of the time while fine arpeggios hesitate to leave their whole melodies which parade with so much hesitation, like our sighs that leave our lungs reluctantly. It may be very slow that it remains extremely mesmerizing, especially with this fascinating ethereal ballad which floats here and there around "Oasis Gardens" to finally end by having the control on it. "

“As much fascinating as puzzling, Time and Tide is made of sonic holograms which broadcast a film, theatrical and poetic universe in music”

"..The hootings of wolves open the soft ambiences of "Wolf Song". This is a fascinating track, filled by a very strong filmic setting, that brings us outside the Arabic borders with an incantation sung by the peoples of the first Amerindian nations. We listen and we are on bird's eyes, scrutinizing the American western plains. Sylvain Carel sheds his 9 minutes by weaving an amazing sound scenery where the passive ambiences go to a very lively tribal rhythm into a strong American rock folk mood. We have to admit that it's quite unusual. But this is so appealing..."

"...Sylvain Carel is a very good storyteller. He puts his tales into music with such intensity that his words are melting in musical images. “Time and Tide” would make a great soundtrack for a movie of which we write the scenario as our passions devour each track we hear..."
