From the energy and light of the title track "icon one" to the darkness and entropy of "icon zero"; the past memories recalled by "timethorns" and the focal centre of the album "chaos theory" - where a small, insignificant event can cause a massive shift of everything - computerchemist weaves an evocative blend of instrumental synthesis which is sure to delight fans of the EM genre. The last track, "the message", carries a simple premise; we all have within us the power to change the future.


"A furious stream of body-rocking old-school Berlin-influenced electronic joy." - John Shanahan, Hypnagogue

"This is EM with a strong Rock edge." - Artemi Pugachov, Encyclopedia of Electronic Music

"Der Titel 'Timethorns' ist für mich ein Höhepunkt des Albums, denn hier wird auf feinste Weise durch massiven Mellotroneinsatz eine wunderbare Stimmung erzeugt" - Jürgen Meurer, Progressive Newsletter
