RELEASE: A Produce & Loren Nerell - Intangible
« on: June 21, 2011, 07:48:34 PM »
Artist: A Produce & Loren Nerell
Title: Intangible
Label: Hypnos (digipak CD)




2011. The first collaboration between two artists well-known to Hypnos listeners and fans of ambient & experimental music in general.

While Intangible has a meditative and tranquil drifting quality, it also incorporates more melodic and rhythmic elements than most ambient music of the present day. Listeners who like their ambience musical will enjoy this as much as those who like their drones deep and mystical.

Though it's the duo's first collaboration together, both of them have been releasing music for about a quarter century. These guys are responsible for some of our "Desert Island Disc" listening material here at Hypnos HQ (A Smooth Surface and Lilin Dewa are both long-time favorites). Often at Hypnos we try to introduce new, fresh talent to our listeners, but this is a case of two music-makers who know all the tricks, and yet continue to create work as vibrant and inspired as anything on the cutting edge.

A Produce has released ten albums, including two on Hypnos (Smile on the Void solo, and Altara in collaboration with Hypnos founder M. Griffin). Loren Nerell has released solo work on Amplexus, Soleilmoon, and Side Effects, and collaborated with ambient music giant Steve Roach on Terraform in 2006.

A special note, apart from the official press release for this album:

We're trying something unusual with this release, offering a big discount for the first few days of release. Our regular price will continue to be $12.99 for Hypnos releases but until Friday, only through the Hypnos store, this one will be $8.99!

If this promotional effort is successful, not only will you save almost 1/3 the price of this CD, but you'll encourage us to continue this great "first few days" discount with future releases.


$8.99 is super-cheap for an official, brand new Hypnos CD!

We appreciate the support, everybody. Orders so far have been very encouraging, so we'll probably repeat this "first week special deal" with future releases.

Ordered. Really looking forward to explore co-work of Barry and Loren. I didn't listen to any samples, but I am sure it will sound as much exciting as it looks like. And big thanks to Mike & Lena for the nice discount, much appreciated!!! I hope there will be enough feedback to repeat it again with future Hypnos releases.

The introductory special is over now. We really appreciate everybody's support The special offer seemed to generate a lot of excitement, and many customers were so happy to save four bucks on Intangible they went crazy and bought all kinds of other stuff.

Again, this kind of support definitely helps ensure that we'll keep right on putting out CDs regularly, and continue offering such deals in the future. At times in today's music environment it seems people don't want to purchase CDs and records labels can start to feel it's somewhat futile to continue, but this past four days just proves that if we release top-quality music, offer a special deal, and make an extra effort to spread the word, it can work out well for everybody.

Thanks again from Hypnos!

I also got my copy today. (Lena, do you ever sleep?) I've only had a chance to listen in my car so far. It sounds like a great release. I will give it a better listen tonight on my home stereo. Can't wait!
Never regret money spent on old books, old dogs or old friends.

Mine came on Friday as well, and I just listened to it in full today.  Very nicely balanced between the earthy and the spacey.  My favorite tracks so far are two extended ones--Lost In Transformation and Pot Covers At Dawn.  I enjoyed the impressionistic artwork and packaging, too.  Nice going, Mike!
