For many trance fans, the art and craft of a trance album has been lost to a digital age. Technology made it easier for people to produce music, resulting in a mass wave of junk tracks which lacks that atmosphere-enhancing quality. However, Dutch electronic music producer Ferry Corsten is an artist who likes to change that. Blueprint is his fifth and most ambitious artist album to date. It is a true concept album conceived by a wilful passion to recode how the music delivers its story.
Stimulated by an idea to unite the music with a storyline that stretches beyond a nebulous lyrical theme, Ferry wanted to fuse his appreciation for the art of screenwriting and film scores, at the same time bring to the project a wider scaling approach. Drafting in acclaimed screenwriter David H Miller (of House Of Cards and Rosewood fame), the pair worked closely on storyboarding a narrative to accompany the album’s conceptual direction. What results for the end listener is a body of work that is polished, synthesised and intellectual. Ferry sees the LP as being “greater than the sum of its parts”.
With the storyline giving nods to the proses of iconic sci-fi authors such as Jules Verne, Hugo Gernsback and most distinctively HG Wells, whilst equally sharing familiarities with modern day shows such as The OA, Westworld and retro Sci-fi-fest Stranger Things, ‘Blueprint’ is an explorative piece of work that puts Sci-fi at its interstellar core. Hollywood actor Campbell Scott (known for The Amazing Spider-Man and The Exorcism of Emily Rose) provides his voice as the narrative of the album. A unique output for one of the biggest names in the electronic scene, but Ferry’s attempts with ‘Blueprint’ is to bring a wider perspective to the listener, as he aims the album to be inclusive of dimensions of religion, history, idea and science fiction.
Ferry Corsten Blueprint is truly an explorative journey and one which the iconic producer is finally excited to be sharing with you…
