Welcome on the website of Oceanic Voyage, an 8 track progressive electronic music album to relax and inspire the mind.
Oceanic Voyage is composed and produced by Stéphane Duchêne in 2011. The music style is between ambient and new age. All tracks are original compositions and are performed with synthesizers, piano and guitars. The melodies are simple and repetitive, as in minimalistic music, but the arrangements are rich and complex, as in progressive rock music.
Stephane Duchene has been working on this album for 10 years. He wanted to combine his passion for synthesizers with his love for the sea. You can read more about him and the inspiration behind Oceanic Voyage in the about page.
This album is also available on CD, but you can listen to it online on www.oceanicvoyage.net
Progressive electronic music tends to push the limits of what genres can do. It also furthers the boundaries of the mind. Oceanic Voyage combines all these elements and more with a 8 track progressive electronic music album designed to relax and inspire the mind.
Each track is it’s own journey, some with vocals and some without. Each track tells it’s own story that you will get lost in. So sit back, relax and enjoy this amazing album by Oceanic Voyage.
With the release of Oceanic Voyage, Bassline Drift aims to take you on a journey through the unknown and give you a fresh perspective on life. The album builds on the sound introduced with their debut album in December 2010, drawing influence from German electronic music of the 80s and intersecting it with contemporary electronica.
The result is an 8 track progressive electronic music album that moves seamlessly from one song to the next, while still maintaining a distinct identity for each song. Each song has been meticulously crafted in order to create a cohesive feeling throughout the album. The sounds vary from atmospheric ambient music to rhythmic and driving techno and trance music.
Progressive electronic music is a genre of music and a style of art that I love. This is especially true when I’m coding, or doing anything that involves a lot of focus. Listening to the right kind of music allows me to focus more, and get more done in less time.
Do you ever find yourself listening to the same song over and over again?
Sometimes I do, but more often than not, I’ll listen to entire albums on repeat for many hours at a time. It is incredibly satisfying to listen through an album from start to finish and then do it all over again.
For this reason, I decided to create my own album of electronic music which could be enjoyed in this way, and so “Oceanic Voyage” was born.
I am an electronic music producer and have been writing music for 5 years. I’m currently working on my first full-length album which is a progressive electronic music journey through the oceans.
My goal is to create music that will help you relax, focus, meditate, and inspire your imagination. I’m particularly interested in exploring the relationship between technology and spirituality (my background is in psychology).
Progressive electronic is a style of electronic music that developed in Europe between 1970 and 1975. It combines elements of progressive rock, classical music, and jazz fusion with avant-garde electronic music.
The term “progressive” was applied to this kind of music because it was a reaction against the pop singles and dance songs that were dominating the charts at the time. Progressive bands typically wrote concept albums that dealt with topics such as space exploration, science fiction, and politics.
The genre reached its peak in popularity at the turn of the decade. A number of bands from this era have survived to the present day, including Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Vangelis, Jean-Michel Jarre, Ash Ra Tempel, Popol Vuh, Deuter, Kluster/Cluster, Harmonia, and Brian Eno.
