Igneous 2010 releases
« on: April 22, 2010, 08:37:55 AM »

For anyone interested, I'm currently working on 3 albums at present:

1) An album consisting of tracks made exclusively of sounds made from virtual synths. I wanted to get away from just using the guitar as a sound source and to work with new (to me) instrumentation. So far, its pretty ethereal/sonorous and is far from complete ! I currently have about 90 minutes of raw mixes to work with. Plan to get it released in the summer.

2) A very dark album made from processed binaural recordings/synth textures. Very heavy going - think 'outerstellar-industrial'. Plan to release this this year.

3) A collaboration with 'Achromus' which is more of an instrumental 'song' album. Very different to anything we've released to date. Again, planned to be released this year.

I've spent a lot of time recently working with a vst program called 'Nebula'. This is a program that 'samples' hardware such as reverb units, tape, valve channels. plate reverbs, compressors etc. It really is fantastic, I'II be posting more about this at some point.

cheers
Pete

Be waiting for number 1  :D (maybe, because I myself work only with virtual synths). Love your music.

Sounds interesting, juggling three albums at once is rather impressive indeed!

Good luck in bringing it all together, though luck is perhaps not the best term; best of creativity in bringing it all together, can one wish creativity towards someone else? Well, I just did so best of... <- that!

Thanks for the interest and comments fellers,

David, I'm not sure about the release format at present. The 'synth album' may turn out to be a double album release at the rate its going !

cheers
Pete

Update

Following on from my original post:

1) Am getting to the completion stage of my 'ION' album.' ION' has been created using soft-synths exclusively and lots of new fangled electronic jiggery-pokery. This will be a double album release / a large digital release (there's over 2 hours of material), depending on what I decide to do with it. Needs mastering and final auditioning. 'ION' has turned out to be primarily ethereal / pastoral ambience

2) 'Untitled' (at present) very dark 'outerstellar-dronescape' album pretty much completed. Lots of processed binaural recordings and tempered
industrial sound-age. Needs mastering / 'nebularising'. Not for the faint hearted, this one !
Probably will be a digital release.

Both will be released on my LuminaSounds self-release label in the near(ish) future.
I have some plans regarding my back catalogue and these albums, more info to follow...

3) To work on next (still plan to release this year)

Pete,

These excerpts sound fantastic! Very inspiring work. Really like both for very different reasons.

Thanks for the comments fellers !

Yes Chad, they are two very different releases.
'Voidbient' - good ambient sub-genre descriptor !

cheers
Pete

Kati sure does make the most beautiful abstract and organic artwork doesn't she.

Come on Pete, you can't just post a picture of the artwork and not tell us the release date!! We want to know when we can get our grubby little hands on it  ;D

'ION' cover
Artwork by Kati Astraeir, design by Pete Kelly



'ION' and 'Orcus' will be released October 2010.

They will be available as downloads through the usual sites and at CD Baby throughout the month.
They will also be available as printed DVD Data discs containing wav's, 320 kbps mp3s, full resolution artwork and a 'free' track for each album (unavailable elsewhere).

These albums are longform works - 95 minutes (Orcus) and 130 minutes (ION) and would have been 'double albums' if they were released as CDs.
I decided to release them in this way, so that people who wanted a physical 'object' and/or higher quality audio will have that option. Also, I
didn't want to just have a 'digital release', these discs will be more of a limited edition archive disc.

More information will be posted on the LuminaSounds site nearer the release date.

cheers
Pete

David, not sure about that error. I think its an Internet Explorer thing that I can't replicate here.

Mike, no more 'bumps' - honest :)
