Title: 2014 Hypnos release schedule?
Post by: drone on on April 14, 2014, 06:58:50 PM
Hi, haven't seen any news about what's coming next this year and what month it's out?  Please let us know Mike!  Greatly anticipating Martian Chronicles 2 and Max Corbacho as well.

Hi Drone On

We've got the Subradial release ICE DIVING finally into production so that will be released around the end of this month, possibly the very beginning of May.

We've got the sequel to Martian Chronicles and Max Corbacho, as you mentioned. Possibly also some solo Seren Ffordd, and a Numina, and Dave Fulton. I need to make some progress on getting those moved forward before I promise dates for those. I really do intend to get several items moved along this summer, and make a dent in this backlog.

Here's a look at the cover for ICE DIVING.

Mike,

Who took this absolutely brilliant image?  I am a photographer and gotta tell you that this blows me away.

Thanks

I believe Tomasz himself (AKA Subradial) took the photograph. You should check out his photo galleries on Facebook. The man is seriously multi-talented!

Hi everyone!

Thanks for these kind words!
Very glad you like the image, it's even better when you'll see it full size (the other half is on the back cover),
anyway - like Mike already kindly mentioned I do photography but wish I had taken this myself, I did not have the opportunity to visit antarctica and do any ice diving yet...
When I was recording this album I did some research about ice diving and discovered some wonderful
imagery that turned out to be framegrabs from movies taken during ice diving expeditions in antarctica taken by a member of the expedition group. He asked me to remain uncredited and I respect that, it was a great gesture from these people allowing me to use this and 2 other images in the inside of the cover artwork.
When I first saw this image I knew it's the cover for my album, it was just perfect and sort of guided me through the rest of recording of the album,
I hope the music will also be a good reason to buy the CD! :-)

Cheers!
Tomasz / Subradial

Hi, thanks, I've been already a member of Hypnos Forum 10 years ago around my 'Bioloophorm 1 & 2' releases but more as a reader/observer rather than active talker so I re-registered just yesterday, glad to be back, regards!

I like the music you have on your Soundcloud. Is the new album going to sound like that?
Title: Re: 2014 Hypnos release schedule?
Post by: subradial on April 21, 2014, 04:08:07 AM
Thank you Castleview, very glad to hear you enjoy the tracks on soundcloud, it is a selection of my various works created over the last ten years. It's difficult to tell if the new album sounds like that, yes and no. There's no drastic change in style but it's also a different story. I really wanted to create the feel and atmosphere of ice diving, the danger and beauty of it, exploration of the dark yet fascinating cold underwater world, sort of a 'soundtrack' to imaginary journey through the depths. Of course like most of the ambient music anyone can interpret the music in their own way. To describe it by musical terms - it's an ambient/experimental record made of synthesized sounds, drones, soundscapes, processed acoustic instruments and field recordings...
It's best to let the music speak for itself, hope you'll enjoy it, regards!

Thanks, everybody.

I have to admit, I vaguely remembered Tomasz/Subradial talking about someone else taking the images, but when I answered before I was in a hurry and the memory didn't come back to me until after I posted.

At any rate, welcome back to the Hypnos forum, Tomasz.

I'm very pleased to see everyone anticipating this CD. The music is wonderful too... it's not just a disc with a pretty cover!

mgriffin, how did you discover him? Did you find him on Soundcloud?
Title: Re: 2014 Hypnos release schedule?
Post by: mgriffin on April 22, 2014, 07:59:50 AM
No, Subradial had some CDs released on dataobscura, the label owned by our forum's own APK. We've sold those Subradial CDs on our store for some years now, so the name and the work was familiar to me.

It's extremely rare that we'll stumble across sound clips by an artist we've never heard of before and decide to release their music.

Oh wow, I didn't know he was on APK's label before.
