Inventions announce the release of their new album ‘Logica’, to be released on April 15 through FREIA Music.
‘LOGICA’ is the third album in the INVENTIONS series. Featuring Theo Travis (Steven Wilson, Robert Fripp, Soft Machine, David Gilmour) on saxophones and flute, the Rotterdam-based DOT Quartet on strings, and narrations by Andy Rowe (The Room), this is probably my most ambitious album since The Black Codex.
Recorded in two separate churches, an empty theater, a coffee roastary, two studio’s and a living room, ‘LOGICA’ has a symphonic, orchestral sound with influences of Mike Oldfield, early King Crimson and Steve Reich. It is the sound of a big ensemble playing live, with a very organic approach.
“I designed this album to work like a musical documentary, in which narrations and music are intertwined, both exploring and exemplifying the same concepts in their own language. Lyrics and improvisations provide another level of understanding, through metaphor, mystery and intuition.
As such, thinking and feeling are represented as two sides of the same coin. The result is an immersive concept album about the deep links between mathematics, logic, language, perception, art and physics.”
The album cover is painted by the brilliant Marcus Sprigens.
