ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
'Le Voyage du Temps' is Allen Brunelle's 1st electronic music/new age release under the pseudonym, Tempustry. Tempustry is a name Allen created from the Latin word for time, 'tempus', and the postfix, -try, meaning 'the study of'. Allen has been studying time for more than 25 years. As a percussionist and drummer, Allen's number one responsibility has been to 'keep time' and to be the rhythmic force behind bands of many genres. 'Le Voyage du Temps' marks the first time Allen has been able to share melodies that have been long trapped in his mind.

'Le Voyage du Temps' has only one intent - to be an uplifting, relaxing, and peaceful listening experience. Liquid melodies set the ebb and flow of each composition. Orchestration, at times minimal and ambient, evolves and builds in positive reinforcement of monophonic synthesizer leads. All the while, an analog drum synthesizer and electronic percussion propel each song to its respective denouement. May Tempustry's music drift you away to a positive place.

‘Le Voyage du Temps recalls some of the pioneers who blazed a trail for electronic progressive way back when the iconic Moog synthesizer ruled the realm. Names like Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream and Jean Michel Jarre’. – Progression Magazine

‘If you like the past masters and grand gurus of kosmische musik, you'll like Tempustry's Le Voyage du Temps’. – Aural Innovations

Most recently, Allen was the drummer of celtic, world music rock band, TODESBONDEN (http://www.todesbonden.com). He previously drummed for progressive rock band, THE DARK AETHER PROJECT (http://www.darkaether.net), and can be heard on 'The Gentle Art of Firewalking' In 1997, Allen toured internationally with Neo-Progressive band, ILUVATAR (http://www.iluvatar.com). While living in San Antonio, Texas, he was the drummer of KING'S RANSOM ( http://www.myspace.com/kingsransommetal ) who just had its 'Curators of the Realm' EP re-issued in 2008 by Steel Legacy Records (ATHENS, GREECE) on LP/CD with DVD.

Allen is currently working on 'Astral Gate', his 2nd CD release, which promises to be an all-out unrestrained assault of an innovative blurring of Berlin & Dusseldorf schools of electronic music. Tempustry’s live show will be equally unparalleled as Allen performs with a stage setup that boggles the imagination, surrounded by Moog, Oberheim, and Roland analog synthesizers, sequencers, vintage Simmons and Tama electronic percussion, Zildjian cymbals, Celtic Bells, and Tama Gong Bass Drum. Joining Allen on ‘Astral Gate’ in the studio and live on stage will be long-time friend and fellow synthesist, Jim Rezek (Iluvatar) on mellotron and synthesizers. Compositions will meld spacey and ethereal soundscapes, soaring leads, and subsonic salvos of electronic and acoustic motorik.

Tempustry was the opening performer at ROSFest 2007, check out http://www.rosfest.com for more info.

Allen is an endorser of Reactorz Percussion http://www.reactorzpercussion.com

Today he is the drummer of progressive power metal band, MYSTIC-FORCE, and the founder/vocalist/drummer of Police tribute band, SO LONELY. He is also a independent live and session drummer.

All instrumental melodic rock songs played on synthesizers.
Aaah, finally a synth CD where the player actually knows how to play piano. In most of the contemporary synth music, the musicians are not very technically proficient at playing notes, most are just knob twiddlers, so it’s refreshing to hear cool melodies played on the synthesizer.

Tempustry is essentially Allen Brunelle who plays all the keyboards. Allen is a multi- instrumentalist who plays keyboards, bass, and drums. Allen’s main instrument is the drums and is currently drummer for Celtic, Gothic, World Music, Doom Metal band, Todesbonden, and was drummer for Dark Aether Project, King’s Ransom, and toured the Americas with Prog biggies, Illuvatar.

“Le Voyage Du Temps” is a CD of melodic synth music. If you are looking for dark, harsh, abstract, noisey, scary electronics, this is NOT the CD for you. The music is well thought out, composed, and performed. As a point of comparison, this CD sounds like synthesist Michael Garrison (circa1979-1983), melodic and cool but not sappy like Vangelis; nor is this meandering mellow new age music. Eventhough the music is very melodic, it has a cool vibe, kind of like soundtrack music for a chase scene or the soundtrack for a James Bond or spy movie. The music is structured with a very song oriented format of verse/chorus, verse/chorus which is refreshing compared to most jammy,formless synth/space music. Also, Allen put a lot of thought into arranging the instrumentation: there’s a rhythm track, a bass line, chords, and melodies.

The sound quality of the CD is excellent. Allen has quite an impressive collection of analog synths which includes: Roland Jupiter 8, Sequential Circuits Prophet 5, Micro Moog, ARP Odyssey, Roland TR-808. Unfortunately Allen doesn’t use all these analogs, but he does use on the CD: Roland SH-09, Micromoog, Roland TR-808, Roland SH-101, Yamaha SY-77, Yamaha TG-77.

On tunes “Driven” and “Space Race”, Allen shows one of his influences, Depeche Mode, where he uses an industrial sound effect for the rhythm track.

I like all the songs and there’s not a bad one in the bunch. I even found myself humming some of the melodies.

So summing up, if you’re looking for Tangerine Dream Pheadra, don’t buy this CD, if you’re looking for more rhythmic and melodic, 1979-1981, Tangerine Dream before they went into total decline, buy this CD. I have purchased and received many freebie CD’s of independent space rock and synth music and this is a CD that I will actually play over and over again.

Aural Innovations

clean production, sparkling textures, and nouveu romantic aspirations of cosmic
From Aural Innovations #32 (November 2005)

Tempustry is Allen Brunelle's solo project apart from his occasional duties as drummer for Architectural Metaphor and Dark Aether Project, and though the music on Le Voyage du Temps has some affinities with the former, most of the songs veer far closer to Jean-Michel Jarre/Michael Garrison territory. With a penchant for symphonic bombast and an obsession with portamento-drenched monophonic synth leads, much of Le Voyage plays out like clockwork, with ultra clean production, sparkling textures, and nouveu romantic aspirations of cosmic grandeur. Pieces like "Space Race," "Spindrift," and "Skyward," while nicely programmed and artfully structured, simply recapitulate the conventional synth wizard magic invoked by numerous Schulze apprentices (including Jarre himself, to some degree) since the late 70s. To Brunelle's credit, his use of drum machines adds a much needed rhythmic element to what has become a nearly homogenized plug-in genre of music. The aptly titled "Driven," for instance, propels the listener across the mechanized autobahn of early Kraftwerk, with a nod to the digital highways explored by such 90s speedfreaks as 808 State, Orbital and Eat Static. For connoisseurs of electronica and similar synth-based genres, Le Voyage has the cardinal virtue of doing it all right - and pretty much right by the book when it comes to post-Schulze space music design. Which is to say, if you like the past masters and grand gurus of kosmische musik, you'll like Tempustry's Le Voyage du Temps.
