Perpetuum Mobile is a new independent CD release by Studio 13. It's an interesting crossover project that has elements of electronic, world music, jazz, and trance. All of the music composed by Phillip Le Frois. Musicians include John Reid - Trumpets, and Debbie Johnson, Chris Blake and Brain Forest - vocals. Paul Kollar provided the vintage synthesizers.

The instrumentation is quite diverse. Some of them used on the CD are: Bagpipes, Kalimba, Turband Drums, Guitar, Zither, Mini Moog, Mellotron, Tibetian Horns, Orchestral Strings, and Native Flutes.

The musicianship and production quality are very good. The juxtaposition of world music instruments and electronic sounds is quite interesting; very well done. There is a lot of variety in the sound textures. Most of the pieces have a discernable rhythmic beat. This music is well crafted.

I particularly like the Concerto For Mellotron. It has a more ambient style than many of the other pieces on the CD. It's quite enchanting; very beautiful.

Studio 13 would be a great match for film makers looking for original music. This music would be good for everything for independent flicks all the way through Hollywood epics. This is not at all predictable, but it always sounds familiar.

Check out the web site where you can listen to some mp3 tracks from the CD, buy the CD, and download lots of interesting sounds for looping and sample players.
