Messages - Parallel Worlds

Pages: 1 2 [3] 4 5 ... 14
There seems to be only parallel worlds in this thread.  ;D

Immediately liked the samples and took delivery recently.  I wasn't disappointed.

What's it like working with Ian?  He seems to produce one brilliant collaboration
after another.

Nice photography by Geigertek aka Neil Fellowes.
thanks.  :D

Memory Geist - 'Benthos' is also available as a 99 copies limited edition handmade digipack art-cdr from Hic Sunt Leones the label of Alio Die:

Memory Geist - 'Benthos' (DiNDDL09)

DiNDDL09| Release date 04/07/11

"Benthos" is the second album by Memory Geist, the collaborative project of Steve Law (of Zen Paradox, Starseed Transmission & Black Cab) and Bakis Sirros (of Parallel Worlds & Interconnected). Their first album "Funereal Cavern" was released in 2007 by the well respected Italian experimental label Musica Maxima Magnetica.

The creation of "Benthos" has been a long process initiated in mid-2007 when Law visited Sirros in his home town of Athens, Greece and the duo recorded some initial material together comprising a variety of soundscapes, sequences, analogue rhythms & organic atmospheres. On his return to Melbourne in Australia, Law sculpted this raw material into a set of 6 tracks which were augmented by further soundscapes, rhythms and arrangement ideas sent across to him by Sirros. The gestation of "Benthos" took 4 years in total and has resulted in the birth of a complex and fascinating ambient electronica album. The pieces range from dark, industrial rhythmic tracks to cosmic style slabs of ambience and showcase the duos use of modular analogue synths alongside computer software manipulation.

info and clips here:

the album will soon also be available as a limited edition (100 copies) digipack CD-R from Alio Die's label Hic Sunt Leones.

(for the gear-heads: this album is full of various modular and analogue synths, including ARP 2600, Doepfer A100 / eurorack, Integrator, Serge modular, Technosaurus Selector, Metalbox/CGS, MS50, System-100m, Trident, etc, etc... )

What do you think of reverbnation as a site to promote your music? And how does the reverbnation player hook into Facebook? I signed up to bandcamp and listed my last release there and was wanting a bit more info from someone/anyone who's using reverbnation as a tool as well.


hi Mike,

reverbnation seems fine as a promotional tool. (you'll find help on the reverbnation website as to how to link the player to your FB page)

i like their pages layout and i have set-up a page there as well:


first review of the forthcoming album 'Exit Strategy' (DiN37),
4 out of 5, 'editor's choise'

forgot to add:
Limitation: 600 copies

DiN37 Exit Strategy CD album by Ian Boddy & Parallel Worlds
(release date 31st of May 2011)

information and track previews now on the DiN web site

Both Boddy & Sirros have a long, well documented love of analogue modular synthesisers and the organic sounds and rhythms these instruments can produce so in many ways it was inevitable that these two musicians would collaborate at some point. Sirros started the ball rolling with the composition of a series of both ambient soundscapes and more structured multilayered compositions. These featured his unusual pulsing, throbbing analogue percussion layers, warm soundscapes and beguiling melodies that are in many ways a signature sound of Parallel Worlds. Boddy took this raw material and shaped, arranged and sculpted it into a series of seven inter-linked tracks that form a musical narrative that runs throughout "Exit Strategy". Adding his glissando keyboard sound that was premiered on his album Slide (DiN31 2008) Boddy brought a real emotional focus to the album which, whilst it may seem to journey through dark, subterranean territory has some glorious melodic highlights.

"Exit Strategy" proves once again that the DiN label can conjure up new combinations of sonic palettes from internationally renowned electronic musicians.
