Doug Woods & Colin Powell biography
Doug Woods (The Soundtestroom) and Colin Powell (A Multitude of One) have never actually met in person (up to October 2015). All of their music has been produced by sharing files via the internet. They decided to get together to work on their first album "The Haunting of Sally Caster" in August 2015 after Doug had posted a demo video of an iPad app called Jordantron (containing lot of Jordan Rudess type sounds) on his YouTube Channel (The SoundTestRoom). Doug's video, showcased some of these keyboard sounds in a track he called The Haunting of Sally Caster, played in the style of Rick Wakeman. Colin liked it so much he asked for the music project file and added his own guitar, bass, and drums to the track. Doug thought this was great and thought it would be a good idea to work on a whole album in a similar way and this first track became the title track of the album. Doug came up with a rough outline of a story and this was soon followed by 11 other tracks, all composed and recorded on iPads and a PDF booklet containing the story of Sally Caster, illustrated with images also edited on an iPad. They are currently working on an album called Folklore, mainly based on Celtic Mythology.

Review by admireArt
Prog Reviewer

4 stars A 70 minutes week.

Doug Woods & Colin Powell's ways to compose at distance could well become a big issue, but at the end of the day, as always, results speak louder than methods, so I would not dwell in theirs.

More in tune with the contemporary Progressive Electronic tagging than the Symphonic/Prog one, this very well accomplished release, has in its backbone those "aerial atmospheres" directly related with that first prog sub-genre and underlining contemporary due to its all inclusive, sampled acoustic/electronic instrumentation, opposite to the "only synths" of earlier prog/electronic works.

"Seven Days", 2016, they promise, seven days they deliver. Seven 10+- minutes compositions named after each day of the week. Each day owns its sonic identity to floating, ethereal, drone like melody lines which construct an up front abstract mood according to these musician's taste and skills for each collaboration.

Music wise, its underlying subtleness and elegance, could hardly appeal to fast -paced hard heads, therefore do not expect such a thing.

Vibrant, creative, heartfelt, even minimalistic most of the times, its brainstorm of ideas never ceases to explore its own possibilities, therefore surprises are abundant in each song. Its daring nature is shown all way through in its very personal low-keyed, contemplative approach more than in its unexistent and always expected symphonic/prog "fireworks".

Elegant, hypnotic and sober yet non-stop creative, this release is well worth its acquisition and better yet a place in my collection. What else? As mentioned, do not expect Symphonic Prog like music nor any kind of relation to this sub-genre's bands or solo artists and by far,.... really far!

****4 PA stars.

Thanks to southsideofthesky for the artist addition.
