About this album

Classic Synthesizer and Sequencer instrumental music with shades of underlying prog rock in a Berlin-School influence base. A must for fans of the classic-era TD style music! 

During the late 70s and early 80s, there was a time when the use of synthesizers helped to create a new kind of music. For some artists and bands, these new sounds were a way to widen the sonic palette as applied to styles such as progressive rock and also give birth to such styles as ambient and soundscape music. Certainly, synthesizers were adopted by many film score producers as a vehicle of choice for creating a rich musical backdrop to enhance the mood or drama in scenes. One such band, out of Germany, became a reference in this area. The band was called Tangerine Dream. Of course, the 80s turned into the 90s, and then the 2000’s and beyond. However those early days are when the synthesizer and sequencer driven music stood out so clearly from what have ever been produced before. Metamorphic Waves, this album, takes its influences from what some call the “classic age” of Synthesizer/Sequencer music. 

The Submariners - Excerpt


The name of the album “Metamorphic Waves” alludes to a music that engages in morphic behaviour. Though there may be the appearance of repetition, which inevitably is a trait of sequencer-style music, the sequences travel through an ever-changing backdrop of soundscapes, vocalizations, pads, and drama enhancing effects. 
Track titles, and the ordering of tracks and associated moods, find their influence in the album composer’s explorations of the writings of William Brinkley, in particular, his novel called “The Last Ship” written in 1988. The Last Ship tells the story of a United States Navy guided missile destroyer, the fictional USS Nathan James (DDG-80), on patrol in the Barents Sea during a brief, full-scale nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union. It details the ship's ensuing search for a new home for her crew. 

Lovers of “space rock”, prog-rock, Berlin School electronic, and instrumental soundtracks should love this album. This one is for you!

Metamorphic Waves Reviews

  • Journeyscapes Review of Metamorphic Waves Review by Candice Michelle November 10, 2017        Metamorphic Waves is the latest album from Sequential Dreams, one of several recording aliases of Canada-based electronic music composer Ron Charron. The tenth installment in the Sequential Dreams series, Metamorphic Waves was particularly inspired by Tangerine Dream’s Force Majeure era, expounding on the band’s late 70’s and early 80’s signature electronic music style – much to the extent that this album often convincingly sounds like it was recorded on the very same equipment! Comprised of six compositions spanning a little over an hour, each piece ranges from approximately nine to twelve minutes in length, with Ron incorporating various elements of ambient, Berlin-school, progressive rock and electronic space music ...

Closing Words: Make Peace, not War. Save lives, don't take them.
The Last Ship theme is about survival of the human race. Let's not make the mistakes described in the William Brinkley novel. We owe it to our children, and their children.
