about

Ambiental electronic soundscapes, infused with ethnic / new age elements...
Mostly inspired by places visited in the past - or, as in some cases, places one can only imagine visiting...
The CD was originally released on the Vitaminic label, and the track "Into The Storm" was also featured on the Christopher Franke-founded Sonic Images / Earthtone Records compilation "Noua Romanie - Rebirth of a Nation".

Review in Aural Innovations (Issue 15, April 2001) by Jerry Kranitz:

Levente Toth is a Hungarian electronic musician now living in the UK who plays meditative ambient and symphonic soundscape music influenced by such artists as Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, and Kitaro.
The aptly titled Places is just that... a series of expressions of impressions inspired by the mood of places in Britain and in Levente's homeland, Transylvania.
Levente became interested in synthesizer music in 1987 and was involved in presenting a series of radio programs in Transylvania on the history of electronic music.
"Faces Of Dartmoor": a track with continually changing moods and paces that include gorgeous melodies and beautifully painted aural landscapes. There's a rapid syncopated synth pattern that reminded me of Tangerine Dream, and part of this even reminded me of early Yes during their more pastoral moments.
Other highlights include "Heart Of Orion", a quiet, atmospheric spacescape piece. "Carpathian Flight" is a fiery, majestic symphonic work with driving percussion and is very much in the Vangelis mold. Levente successfully communicates, as intended, the feel of flying over the Carpathian mountains. What a view!
In summary, if you're a fan of Levente's stated influences or just dig accessible symphonic progressive music than you'll certainly enjoy his inspirational, melodic, and image inducing brand of keyboard music.
