Metacollage - A new album by Saul Stokes
« on: March 25, 2009, 11:29:42 PM »
Hi,

Just a note that Metacollage is now available for purchase. I have a page set up with sound files, videos, photos etc:

http://saulstokes.com/metacollage/index.html

Some professional photos have been taken of the album case. I think they're needed so you can get a good feeling as to the quality of the case. I won't have them up until tomorrow night. For those of you who prefer to purchase through Hypnos, I am in the process of sending a batch of them to Mike in the next day or two.  This album is also available on Itunes and Amazon. It will be available on Emusic any day now.

Thank you,
Saul


review from Chuck van Zyl (Star's End)
Most music is all about pairing notes. Electronic Music is all about pairing sounds. Saul Stokes is an artist who lives in sound. His album Metacollage (49'40") resides among his more Ambient and textural works. Made up of eight quietly complex brain churners, the music on this CD sounds as if electricity were expressing itself as music. Unique tones, ranging from the experimental to the pastoral, are arranged and combined into a most original music. Chimes ring under a digital cloud while raw waveforms are gently twisted, filtered and subdued into fascinating and ever-changing timbres. Jittery beeps slow into lovely melody as a cyber-lullaby forms amidst dulcet synth tones and echo feedback. The overall effect remains in the listening background, yet every now and then a piece does call attention to itself. There is something wondrous about the way this music is produced. While experimenting with his imagination Saul Stokes reveals himself in his work.

This is a great solution to the packaging problem. Quality. Escape from the tyranny of the plastic slab of nothing. For those who appreciate it, the higher cost is worth it. The music is sounding very exciting to me. I am digging the more ambient style of this one...

Curious to know how others are reacting to this innovative arrangement.

I've ordered one, too.  Very nice package and sounds like it will be another winner.  Will have to file it next my "Edge of the Forest" box.

Here are some photographs of the complete Metacollage package.  I have mailed out quite a few promotional copies so I'm hoping to post some reviews soon.
