Brazilian rock band Still Living have expanded their cooperation with us! After the great reception for their previous album Humanity, the band set out to make an even better album. And we think they nailed it with their concept album Ymmij!
The album will become available at the end of this year but to whet your appetite, here is the first single:
Our electronic project Earthshine (relax, it’s instrumental music) has delivered a stunning fifth album. Abstract Patterns will also be released on October 27 and contains 8 tracks. Blekkmark Design Studio has not only created some fitting artwork, but also updated the logo.
Peter had this to say about it: This time my starting point was certain terms and patterns that associate with numbers or ranges of numbers and terms from the world of programming. Like for instance the Fibonacci sequence, or Pi. And my next step would be to translate those numbers to chords and melodies and trying to make it sound right. Without letting it become crazy or incoherent.
I quite liked the challenge and the outcome, but you be the judge!
In this video you can hear a part of the first track: Fibonacci Fever.
And last but not least:
Enjoy the new video for Alienation from Forest Field’s latest and succesful album Lonely Desert:
Please be kind and help share the word. The music deserves it!
One of my favourite places in England has to be Stonehenge and Earthshine have created a track that compliments both Avebury and the henge, and also does it complete justice by the piece called Secret of the Stones. The arrangement starts in an almost Jarre style, then transposes itself into a really ancient melody of time and memory, it is as if musically we have found a portal to the past. This fluid and fascinating composition is one of the best on the album, I could listen to this for hours.
So a little suspense should be in order here:
Independant label Rock Company has just presented the first video for their new project Earthshine. The project aims at delivering instrumental music with touches of ambient, new age and film music. Little guitars, but emphasis on piano, mellotron and synths. With drums and bass where needed.
The first album will soon be released. So for now welcome Earthshine:
