Sigmund Snopek III
Trinity / Seas Seize Sees
Sigmund Snopek III is a versatile American musician - a musical genious who has
created and performed a diverse array of original music for over 30 years. His
multiple styles include progressive rock (of which I spoke not too long ago),
musical comedy, modern symphonic compositions, contemporary choral works and
electronic music. Other milestones in his multifaceted career include performing
his symphonies with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and writing and performing
Irish choral works!!
His double CD (two hours worth of material) is the musical dressing/development
to a science-fiction theme (that Sigmund had come up with, some time this past
century) into a 3-part musical odyssey. It was composed during the seventies and
was partly recorded in 1973 (the first part) while the rest was recorded in the period
between 1996 and 1999. This incredible musical time bridge cannot be easily classified,
categorised or even described in the few sentences allotted here. It includes influences
from almost every musical style known to western humanity: rock, progressive rock, space
rock, opera, classical music, jazz, and everything else in-between!
An exceptional musical madness, full of creative insanity and dynamic ejaculations of
talent and taste. Another great album from the French record company Musea.
