Likely a typo. I've never heard of a CD released on a Saturday.  ;)

Ralph Vaughan Williams - Tallis Fantasia (1910)
Gorgeous performance. The unhurried playing, which I love, brings such gravitas to the piece. The version I've listened to for years is 1:30 shorter than this. I think I'll have to hunt for this one on CD.

Shane Morris & Mystified "Evolution" CD

After "Epoch" (April 2012) and "Emergence" (June 2013), here comes the culmination of "Inspired Evolution" trilogy, entitled "Evolution" and released on Spotted Peccary Music during August 2014 in catchy 4-panel disc eco wallet featuring original photography, layout and design by SPM/Lotuspike visual stalwarts Jourdan Laik and Daniel Pipitone. First there was the Epoch of reptiles, then followed the Emergence of mammals, while this final installment focuses of the Evolution of early humans. So another adventurously transporting journey reveals...

"Fire Gathering" instantly calls back the memories of mesmerizingly mindscaping percussions and mysteriously dissonant rumblings explored on "Emergence", the transition into a new era has just begun. Intriguingly wrapped by tensely nuanced atmospheres, which brilliantly display peculiar insignias of both soundcarvers. With your headphones on, a powerfully immersing listening experience awaits!!! "Growing Into New Territory" quickly shifts into warmly relieving zones, quite panoramic, reinforced with subtly pulsing synthetic sounds, while additional piercing fragments slowly emanate and alternate with array of organic flutters. Delicious tribal-like rhythm inconspicuously sneaks in and meticulously amalgamates with hypnotic pulsation. Stunningly spellbinding transmutation continues, bravo, gentlemen!!! "Waiting For The Storm To Pass", the longest piece on the album with 13 and half minutes, merges undulating expansive drifts, continuous flow of strongly mesmerizing repetitive helixes and occasional spasmodic outbursts. Tranquilly high-tech, trance-infused shamanic performance with ear-splitting climaxes thrown in!!! The next cut, "Hunting In The Hills", moves into shadowy drone terrains, rather unfathomably monochromatic on the back, exquisitely bridged with warmly embracing crescendos, persistently mesmerizing twinkles, ear-tickling pandemoniums, glimpses of tribal origins and ephemeral shaking subtleties. This is nothing but truly phenomenal sonic chamaeleon and most likely, a magnum opus of the whole trilogy!!! And the track title is exactly chosen too. The final piece, "The Trials Of Evolved Man", quickly metamorphoses and follows the path of swiftly pulsing crystalline endurances punctiliously coalesced with gently nuanced sky high drones. Filled with warm velvety mesmerism, this is your everyday dose of trance-imbued elixir!!!

About 10 months ago, after recapitulating "Emergence", I didn't have any idea how these guys want to top first two parts of the trilogy with their closing chapter. But now, I can confirm that Shane Morris & Mystified (aka Thomas Park) have achieved their challenge. Yes, they did it, because they are amazing sonic storytellers and "Evolution" is a genuinely virtuosic accomplishment, strongly distinguishing and stirringly entertaining!!! Certainly another must-have, but in case you have missed "Epoch" and/or "Emergence", then I strongly recommend to complete the whole trilogy and fully experience this spectacularly immersing primordial escapade!!! To wrap up the credits for this album, the mastering duties were handled again by Lotuspike guru Ben Cox at The Armory studio. "Inspired Evolution" trilogy is undoubtedly a milestone!!! What will be the next chronicle?

jdh -- I gave the Sleepover Series a listen. Great stuff! I might have to order that.

Boris Lelong - Perdide
Lush, tropical-sounding environmental atmospheres with slow moving and light ambient textures interspersed. Took me a few listens to really get into it, but now I'm mesmerized by it and have been returning to the album over and over again. Digital only.

This is a 28 minute dark ambient drift I recorded live last night on to stereo tracks in Cubase on my PC. I used my Korg Volca keys, MI Shruthi 4 pole mission and a Nintendo DS lyte running Korg DS10 going through a Boss ME50B pedal, Boss DD20 delay and Boss PS-2 pitch shifter/delay. It is uploaded as a wav file so sound quality should be good, its also downloadable so wont tie up your PC if you have other things to do on the net whilst listening to it on your preferred media player. :-)

Ralph Vaughan Williams - Tallis Fantasia (1910)

Absolutely marvelous piece of music for string orchestra.
Recorded in Gloucester Cathedral, gives it a nice atmospheric touch.
If you don't know it then now is the time to listen.

Vaughan Williams - Tallis Fantasy {One of the best performances ever}

Many thanks,
Out of interest, I just checked and I used over 70 audio 'clips' in that track, not counting the synths used. There were almost double that in the pool of material I was working with - I always end up leaving a lot of stuff out.
