Liquid Mind is the project of Chuck Wild,
a Los Angeles composer who was a former partner of Patrick O'Hearn in the
rock band Missing Persons and wrote a few television soundtracks as well.
Ambience Minimus (Chuck Wild, 1994)
is a sophisticated work of ambient music.
Zero Degrees Zero is a slowly revolving impressionistic painting that
intersects Klaus Schulze's galactic soundscapes and Harold Budd's ethereal
filigrees. The 28-minute symphonic poem relies on memorable melodies,
although they are barely: slowed down like in a time warp, they decompose in
celestial chimes, echoes of angels, breathing of nebulae.
The album includes three 12-minute pieces as well.
Whisperchill is even softer, the melodies even more heavenly, the
pace even slower. That supreme stasis of that track and of the following
Liquid Mind flows into the majestic slumber of
Shadows Of White, a fairy tale sculpted in snow.
Again, melodies overflow, but the heartbeat has been stopped, and one hardly
realizes how much this music owes to romantic symphonies and Morricone
After a worthy follow-up, Slow World (Chuck Wild, 1996), Wild seemed
to abandon the project
(the 30-minute Slow World almost marking a saturation point of that
celestial, neo-classical genre),
Mirror Veil 16:54
Blue Seven 12:40
Slow World 29:04
but then he returned with two albums that resume the
journey from where it was interrupted: Balance (Chuck Wild, 1999)
Lullaby For Grownups 5:20
Laguna Indigo 18:27
Timeless and Tender 11:50
Dream Messenger 13:45
the neo-classical Unity (Chuck Wild, 2000),
with the new tour de force of Society Of Dreams.
Strings and woodwinds float, multiply, merge.
It is as if an entire repertory of "adagios" was being played in slow motion
and out of sync by an orchestra of orchestras.
