ART OF INFINITY | 20 years "Dimension Universe" | New video

New video "Drift Upon The Sky" out now. (05.04.2024)

ART OF INFINITY signed a record deal with BSC Music/Prudence 20 years ago. Their second album "Dimension Universe" was released on April 5, 2004 and is now considered a classic, especially by many Pink Floyd fans. It is the masterful fusion of ambient and art rock that the German duo achieved particularly well on this elaborately produced album.

Together with illustrious guest musicians, Thorsten Rentsch and Thorsten Sudler-Mainz produced a concept album that deals with the infinite expanse and mysteries of the universe. The main piece of the album is the 14-minute space opera "Drift Upon The Sky", in which a total of 13 musicians were involved. Guitarist Klaus Major Heuser, keyboarder Matthias Krauss, saxophonist Stefan Höllering and lead singer Eva Wolf were among those involved in the editing of Thorsten Sudler-Mainz's longtrack composition.

It was recorded and mixed at Thorsten Rentsch's Renaissance Studio in Cologne. The analog and atmospheric vintage sound, the floydy guitars, the big space choirs and last but not least Eva Wolf's majestic vocals make "Drift Upon The Sky" a timeless classic.

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of "Dimension Universe" ART OF INFINITY release a new video for "Drift Upon The Sky".  The fantastic space animations invite you to discover or enjoy the atmospheric and funky sounds of ART OF INFINITY once again.

The historic album review from the German Eclipsed Rock Magazin from 2004

ART OF INFINITY - Dimension Universe

Music between Tangerine Dream, Pink Floyd and Trance - music like stardust that constantly trickles down to earth from outer space and has made life on our blue planet possible in the first place. Art Of Infinity invite us on an exciting cosmic star journey. This album is finally being officially released by Prudence.

It is almost impossible to pick out individual tracks here. It's the whole journey that counts. Whether "Major" Heuser plays David Gilmour brilliantly or angelic fairy voices are heard, it is always hypnotic and imaginative.

Only the 14-minute piece "Drift Upon The Sky", in which monk chants and a "dark-side-of-the-moon saxophone" can be heard and a piano sails through distant worlds, stands out and shows how almost purely instrumental Pink Floyd pre-Wall could sound today. Truly a beautiful space journey. (Walter Sehrer, Eclipsed Rock Magazin, Germany, 2004)

Press comment from 2004

ART OF INFINITY - Drift Upon The Sky

Thorsten Sudler-Mainz and Thorsten Rentsch decided to create something big and invited a lot of excellent musicians, who shine with their long career and collaboration references. The piano and acoustic guitar during the intro of "Drift Upon The Sky" are pure in sound, the chorus builds and builds into something big, the saxophone is incisive and the spoken vocals skillfully capture the mood of the track. The amazing David Gilmour-esque slide guitar solo from the great German guitarist Klaus "Major" Heuser is brilliant, as is the majestic female vocal from Eva Wolf. "Drift Upon The Sky" is Art Of Infinity's "Shine On You Crazy Diamond." Perhaps this is Art Of Infinity's best track ever.
