Special price reductions on Umbra & Penumbra label discs
« on: December 17, 2009, 12:28:45 PM »
I thought I'd give first crack at this announcement to Hypnos Forum visitors.  We've just reduced the price of almost all Umbra & Penumbra label discs , mostly $2-3 less, some as much as $5 lower.

For those who don't know, Umbra was the label of Italian ambient artist Oophoi, and Umbra gradually branched out to release the work of other artists such as Tau Ceti, Seren Ffordd, Busso de la Lune and several more.  Later he started the Penumbra imprint for shorter, EP-length releases in the same nice packaging as the Umbra releases (which come in a roughly 5x8 inch plastic folder with a color-printed folio or card).  When Umbra was running at its peak, some of the hottest-selling items our store has ever carried were coming out of this little label, and we're sorry to see it cease operations.  Virtually everything in this part of the store is now out of print, though Oophoi's own albums will continue to be sold for now.

Here's the link:

There are some I'd like to get but can't due to still out of work....depending on how many copies you got I may get lucky down the road. Don't hold any for me though as no clue when I'll get back to the workforce, hopefully next month once the new year starts and purse strings open up. Got a few irons in the fire yet again for contract stuff but nothing happening yet....

Sorry, I'm not really familiar with the artist Oophoi.

Can someone suggest a few favorite titles as a starting point?

Thanks!
