Title: 10 years of Igneous Flame (and free album)
Post by: petekelly on January 10, 2013, 08:38:05 AM
This January, I've been releasing my ambient music under my Igneous Flame moniker for 10 years. This is quite a milestone for me, even though I'm aware it is dwarfed by much more established artists longevity, it still means a lot to me. I initially released my material on 'Chillfactor 10 records' (not my title !) in 2003 and when that label folded, I set up my own LuminaSounds imprint in 2008. During this 10 year period, I released 11 solo albums and 24 albums in total.

Around 2003, I read some overly-optomistic 'career' articles for musicians about having 5 year and 10 year plans, I decided that they were far too idealistic and my plan was to simply carry on creating and releasing ! I've still got a lot I want to do and over time, more refinement will (hopefully !) come into the work. I hope to be able to carry on as I am currently able to in the future.

To mark my first 10 years, I'm giving away my 2005 'Binaural Soundtracks' release (as 320 kbps mp3s).

Congratulations!

8 Shades of Sound - Formaria is one of my top 10 favorite releases ever. I also love OXANA.

Your 10 year "plan" to just keep on creating and releasing has gone well. Congrats!  8)

Thanks again chaps !

I released my eponymous album 'Tolmon' on this date 10 years ago, the Hypnos forum was one of the few ambient online places I knew about and like a number of artists, my first post here was a self-promotional one. People were very encouraging (Scott playing it on Ping things, for example) and I decided to 'hang around'. I'd like to say I've found this forum to be a great info spot over the years. It isn't the biggest forum, but I think that's one of it's strengths and people here pretty much know their stuff.
