Brain-melting spaciness from Texas, Kösmonaut is Patrick R. Pärk, who delivers propulsive retro-ish psych-prog electronics reminiscent of Heldon and the cosmic sounding grooves of Tangerine Dream and Conrad Schnitzler.
"Voyage of Time encompasses the evolution of all things. It symbolizes the eternal dance of matter with energy and the mysterious presence of consciousness. How then to tell this story...to detail the progression of something so encompassing? One way perhaps, is the abstraction offered by oscillatory electro-sonic synthesis. This is the path of Kösmonaut, a lone explorer of myriad psychic vistas. Kösmonaut channels experiential knowledge of Time's secrets into trance inducing kosmiche-electronic excursions. Time forms the very basis of all heard here, as sequences multiply, combine, fade in, fade out, all in intense astral syncopation. Motorik drum pulses ride smoothly underneath cerebral arpeggiators as audio-starlight percolates throughout the stereo field. A droning dark matter undercuts the entire ritual, and at times so dominates the procession as to approach some forbidden incantation of unspeakable forces. But balance is never lost as the trip equally embraces a frail beauty, travelling into blissful fields of sun-dappled harmony. These are the sounds of Time; a dimension moving ever forward, ever backward, and always out of reach." - DEM WANDERER,
