Cygnotic Evolution

Born 1970 Markus Lindwurm, creator of the electronic act Cygnotic, grew up within the Zeitgeist of the legendary pioneers of electronic and progressive music. So from the early beginnings he was shaped fundamentally by art-music like Rush, Pink Floyd, Marillion and Saga. Also at this age of musical awakening the early masterpieces in synthesized sound from Jean-Michel Jarre and Tangerine Dream came along. These milestones in sequenced sound evoke an everlasting devotion for synthetic music ... opening and shaping the musical future mind in between this dualistic balance from dark-lightened moods that can be found throughout the Cygnotic compositions.

1998 the first album ‘Wavelenghts Of Mental Transendence’ came to life. A dualistic early creation that contrasts the listener into dualistic poles of drum- and bassline-orientated  'Pulsating Spheres' and ambient 'Chilling Fields', where melancholic harmonies for contemplation are incarnated. A raw, mostly live-studiorecorded unique mixture of Trance and Chillout-Ambient. The album was self-released under the formerly used artist name ‘Cygnotic Realm’.

After a ten yeared haul ‘Cygnotic’ started again to work seriously on a new album. ‘Reflections From The Future’ was the epic result. ‘Reflections’ shows a clear progress in synthetic structures and sound quality. The influences of Jean-Michel and Tangerine Dream are more visible bringing them from the golden analog era to a new mixed up form for the platinum millenium. Pure epic space electronica from synth-classical sounds up to psychedelic, tribal and dark melancholic arrangements; always balancing the liquid line of bright light and moody darkness.

The same year 2008 brought up the add-on EP ‘Space Harmonics’ that featured three versions (extended, album, clubmix) of this epic track as well as two more bonus tracks.

2010 the album ‘Through The Gates Of Nocturnal Sleep’ shows more of a gloomy introverted and profound Cygnotic side. The album concept involves the theme of an inner catharsis undergone during the transition from life to death – coming home. This internal landscapes of the mind underlay the ‘Nocturnal Sleep’-album with all the typical mood-evoking Cygnotic aspects of time, eternalness, melancholia, euphoria, harmonics, resonance and all those pulsating elements floating within; densely packed with familiar ‚cygnotic‘ fabrics of synthesizers and epic electronica-compositions that take the listener on an intensifying ride through a dark layered passage into the light.

2013 will bring up new Cygnotic Stufff...in progress.

 

Cygnotic Sidechains

Within the period of february 2009 to november 2011 Markus Lindwurm (under the name 'Skydragon') was also member and co-founder of the full electronic trio ‘Eyes Turned Skyward’ with the co-members Armin Dörfler and Matthias Köhler. The concept was to play only live without given or prepared schemes or patterns. Everything happened in the moment of playing. A few live-concerts as well as more than 25 studio-live-sessions where recorded, some more than 7 hours without interruption,  Within this three years the combo released six download albums; a seventh & eighths album were post-released in 2012, more to come for sure because of the inexhaustible pool of material...
