The idea to produce a track namely ‘Prelude’ came about in 2003 when Ilnaz was inspired by a famous production of ‘Bach – Prelude and Fugue” c-mol WTC 1. There were many variations of that track produced by Ilnaz locked within in a home studio, that was until they were merged together to produce the result of annual efforts.

Cramp – Prelude (Extended Mix)
Gentleness defines greatness within the exquisitely fine orchestral strings, accurately contributing a fully focused atmospheric picture in your imagination. Framed within tarnished outlines, the dreamlike quality dramatically unravels many tranquil colours, winding roads lead to mysterious destinations whilst fragile branches conduct the melodic lead effortlessly.

The next impression I perceived was one of Leonardo da Vinci frantically pushing pencil to paper, engineering history. A multitude of frenzied illustrations overlap within the musings of a true ‘Bach’ styled masterpiece. As we come to a close, the reflection of shimmering stars explode across the galaxy of the mind’s eye, before ceasing to exist –AWE
