Inspiration from Jarre & Tangerine Dream on new release! Narration by Les Penning.

“I‘ve been working hard finishing my new Sanctuary IV album, but I needed a break to clean the musical palate, so I really felt the need to do something completely different,” he explains. “At the age of eight, I received two albums for Christmas: The Sound of Music and Tubular Bells. The later album helped define my musical path. But that same Christmas, my brother received Jean-Michel Jarre’s Oxygene, which I soon borrowed and played to death.

“Over the years, and especially of late, I’ve realised how much I have also been impacted by electronic music; from Jarre to Vangelis, from Ultravox to Depeche Mode, and from John Carpenter to Tangerine Dream. So I went out and bought a collection of old analogue synthesisers and this is the album that resulted, which I hope is one that captures the emotion and warmth.”

Cursus 123 430 is a concept album, written by Reed‘s sometime collaborator Les Penning, who has also acted as narrator. Reed has also commissioned acclaimed artists Matt Rooke and Peter Rogers to construct a graphic novel as the ultimate companion to the music.
