Alain Weber - Hoover Cover

Producer Alain Weber has conceived a second album just recently. The first few tracks are based upon emotional simplified-minimalism on piano and covered-over-layers of moody classical strings. A part of such an approach I could eventually call neo-minimalism. The compositions are based on simple tunes, with these classical harmony layers, it makes this work very well. Further on, it sounds like no longer real strings but also synthesizers replace their part, which changes, almost weakens the sonic range a bit towards a neo-classical level, without however ever becoming Gothic. Alain Weber succeeds with his vision on the production to have just enough sound variations inbedded to keep a filmic attraction into the music, so that this concept still works well for a bit over 40 minutes. Obviously interest in some pop standards has played an influence in his sources of inspiration, from which he mentions names like Yello, Ruichi Sakomoto but also Michel Nyman (which can of course be heard in the earliest piano led tracks). Incorporated were instrumental interpretations of Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus” and Joe Dassin's Indian Summer.
