That reminds me- I did forget to mention how great Amir's music is...  :o ;D

Yeah, I think he's great, too.  I was down on Amir for awhile as a "Roach clone" but he just kept getting better and proved himself as having his own voice, especially on the "Rooms" set for Amplexus. Also really love "Autumn."

One of the things I mentioned in the 2010 preview above, is an album by an Italian trio called Herion.  This is what I wrote before:

Quote
First, Hypnos is in discussions with an Italian trio called Herion, which features some names some of you may have heard: Enrico Coniglio, Emanuele Errante and Elisa Marzorati.  Well, I have to admit I hadn't heard of Elisa before this, but Enrico had worked with Oophoi before (Aqua Dorsa) and Emanuele has a very nice album on Evan Bartholomew's label, Somnia.  The Herion album, Out and About is a beautiful and compelling combination of delicate musical structures with "glitch" components and strange, experimental little samples.  The album is a real pleasure to listen to, and this appears very likely as a March 2010 release.



I've continued discussions with Herion and it seems we have a good understanding, and I would say the album is very likely to happen at this time.  Exact release date has not yet been nailed down but will almost certainly be February or March.  This  is the CD cover image, at this time:

I should add, related to the above, that the Out and About cover is based upon a photograph by Donato Gagliano.

I like the balance of the layout (and the photo).

Just read all the news for 2010, it's great to see the label releasing all those cds after a (very) relatively calm 2009 year ! I can't wait to check out the Herion album, I wonder how it's going to sound like, with Enrico Coniglio and Emanuele Errante on board I gotta say my expectations are going sky high !

Ah - the Lisa/Amir thing... the "good ole days".   This forum has a lot of history.   If Amir could handle the mild ribbing he'd initially get - he'd be welcome here... :-)   

Jimmie Johnson recently released his "November" through his site.

We've just had a really bad experience with the CD manufacturer we've used for at least 60 CD pressings previously, so we've just received the Pearce DAYLIGHT SLOWLY discs and that album will be released as sure as I make sure the artwork is 100% ready to go.

I'm investigating other options for disc manufacturing before sending in the Nebulae and Herion discs for pressing.  I don't want to deal with these delays again.

It's some really sad news about the problems issuing Evan Bartholomew's Tidal Phases Of The Moon; after enjoying his other releases, I have been really looking forward to hearing this piece.

I hope you two manage to get together sometime in the future and complete this project; we will all be the richer for it.

Sorry, Drone On, I didn't realize I'd failed to answer this.

The Nebulae album is definitely still happening.  It was just delayed, along with everything else, while I puzzled out what to do with the next Hypnos CDs.  The good news is, we're definitely going to push ahead with the next several Hypnos CD releases, one after another until we're caught up.  All will be in digipak format, at least for the remainder of the year.  We'll see how our customers receive those CDs, and get the release backlog cleared out.  I don't have a wish to reassess CD packaging options any longer, so unless there is a great wave of dislike for the new Hypnos digipaks, or unless nobody buys them at all, we'll keep releasing music that way for the near future.

We will continue to run the Hypnos Secret Sounds sub-label, mostly for reissues, oddities, live recordings, and for the work of emerging artists.

The next Hypnos release will be Herion Out and About and my plan right now is to do the Nebulae album after that.

Following those two, we're looking at the A Produce & Loren Nerell collaboration, and the Seren Ffordd and Oophoi collaboration.

The Seren Ffordd reissue series on HSS will recommence this week, with Arhythmia.

Many thanks to everyone who patiently waited during this lull of over six months between releases.

Also note that the Herion album cover has changed slightly.  Same artwork, just a slightly different cropping.

10000000000 thumbs up for the use of Digipaks  ;D


All will be in digipak format, at least for the remainder of the year.  We'll see how our customers receive those CDs, and get the release backlog cleared out.  I don't have a wish to reassess CD packaging options any longer, so unless there is a great wave of dislike for the new Hypnos digipaks, or unless nobody buys them at all, we'll keep releasing music that way for the near future.

At this time we're not changing the packaging of Hypnos Secret Sounds releases.  Those will continue to be digipaks or vellum envelopes, with booklet and CDR.  The switch to digipak is for Hypnos and Binary releases.

Small update here. Out and About by Herion is in the manufacturing stage as of last week or early this week.  This is our first experience using this new CD manufacturer so we'll see how long it takes to have CDs in hand, but I'm hoping for the very beginning of October.  We'll start to post more information (description, mp3 sample clips and so on) soon.

Then we'll start moving forward with the other CD releases in the Hypnos backlog!
