Album Notes
computerchemist is the ongoing solo project of Dave Pearson, who lives in Székesfehérvár, Hungary, after moving from the UK in 2008.

Over the last 25 years Dave's music has been strongly influenced by “classic” Berlin School performers such as Tangerine Dream (mostly from the '72-'86 period) and Klaus Schulze, as well as taking inspiration from newer, more contemporary musicians with a diversity ranging from The Mars Volta to Csaba Vedres.

The album "icon one" evolved over the course of 10 months and has already received critical acclaim through previews on Después del Eclipse Radio and Tangerine Dream Fans Zone Radio; now it is available in both physical CD album form and digital download.

"icon one" takes the listener on a voyage of sonic discovery; from the energy and light of "icon one" to the darkness and entropy of "icon zero"; the past memories recalled by "timethorns" and the focal centre of the album "chaos theory" - where a small, insignificant event can cause a massive shift of everything - computerchemist weaves an evocative blend of instrumental synthesis which is sure to delight fans of the EM genre. The last track, "the message", carries a simple premise; we all have within us the power to change the future.

Dave is currently working on his third album, to be released sometime in 2008. For more information, you can visit his website at and the official myspace site at

“icon one” from computerchemist - reviews

"A furious stream of body-rocking old-school Berlin-influenced electronic joy... Pearson sits down at his piano for the beautifully dramatic closer, "The Message," then sets it afire with a ripping guitar line. There's a distinct cinematic/narrative overtone to all the pieces here, the longer ones clearly sliced into movements, and the sonic imagery comes across quite clearly. It's a very tasty ride, especially for the analogue-heads among us. Icon One is a Hypnagogue Highly Recommended CD." - John Shanahan, Hypnagogue

"Powerful stuff. Hard Rock EM, anyone?... This is EM with a strong Rock edge. I guess if we take Tangerine Dream's instrumentation of the 1990's (keyboards, guitars, drums, sax etc) and take away most of the Pop / easy-listening sensibilities typical of their music from that era, we'd get something like "Icon One"... Dave Pearson is certainly an artist to look out for." - Artemi Pugachov, Encyclopedia of Electronic Music

"I'm listening to your CD now - the song called Timethorns, very nice! Great sequencing and cascading drums with sweeping synths. This could have been on a 1981 Tangerine album .... this might be the best song of yours I've heard, excellent!" - Greg Allen, Author of Klaus Schulze: Electronic Music Legend

Computerchemist's message Icon one
I knew since before that Dave compose very beautiful suggestive music. This wonderful album Icon one made me see things in my mind with my "inner eye". I see our planet a bit from above maybe 200 meters from the ground. I can see war, hunger,the consequences of our destrucktion, The music gives us a warning. I can also see beautiful forrests gardens plants and animals. In my mind Icon one gives me a message, take care of our planet before it is too late. There is still hope. This wonderful album is so special to me. Only one piece of music made me see inner things so clear before and that was Ravels Bolero when I was just 7 years old, coming from me, this is a great compliment To me this is a masterpiece, I can dream away in my mind and feel like I am flying when I listen to Icon One. Thank you Dave!!


Icon One Album
Again, great work Dave. I enjoyed your first "Atmospheric" album and you return with another hit!
All the best.
