Igneous Flame 2011 news:

'Lyra'

I'm currently working on my next album 'Lyra'.
'Lyra' will be my 10th solo release since my first album 'Tolmon' was released in 2003. It will be a guitar based album, incorporating nylon string guitar as well as electric. I'm endeavouring to make something different / unique on this one and a lot of work has already gone into the project to date. I'm planning on a late 2011 release for 'Lyra'.

Videos

I'm steadily adding videos to my Youtube channel, there are now 33 videos there now. I'm enjoying the process of making them, but they certainly take a long time to render !

Here's the most recent one, 'Isotropic' (from 'ION')

Thanks Seren ! and I thought audio rendering could take a long time - nothing compared to video rendering with loads of fx.

cheers
Pete

I'm thinking of doing a DVD, yep.

I'm using Sony Vegas Studio 10 with Pixelan plugins (which are very good) and I've recently bought a Sony HX5V which does pretty good video for a compact camera.

Igneous Flame News June 2011

My upcoming album 'Lyra' is still at a work-in-progress stage, I'm planning to release it in the autumn. It may well be a 'double album' release.
I'm currently using some new tools, as I felt I was repeating myself with some of the 'tried and tested' methods I've been using for years.

Native Instruments 'Prism'
A very interesting synth, quite unique (apart from Logic's 'Sculpture') and very 'tweakable'.

Image-Line's 'Deckadance'
Created for DJs, but I'm using it for looping, in a quite different way to the traditional 'sound on sound' method of looping. Great fun for industrial style mash-ups (as I believe the young folk call them) of Killing Joke tracks.

Korg NanoKontrol2
For controlling the playback / looping in Deckadance. A neat little unit, I'm looking at the other nano series units as well.

A tentative DVD release of my recent video work is still on the cards. The more recent videos really need to be seen in high resolution, such is the subtle nature of them. More info to follow.

Lyra new Igneous Flame album

I've just completed the mastering stage for my upcoming release 'Lyra'. This will be a double album release and will be released in October 2011 (details still to be finalised). 'Lyra' will be my 10th solo release since my debut release 'Tolmon' in 2003 and will be released on my LuminaSounds label.

I've employed a different approach to this album and even though guitar is still the predominant source, there is a wider tonal variety from synth textures and processing. The material is primarily ethereal and meditative.
Artwork will be by Kati Astraeir, more details and audio clips to follow in the coming month.
