'Lyra' new Igneous Flame album released
« on: November 11, 2011, 08:12:16 AM »


'Lyra'
Released 11/11/2011

Artwork by Kati Astraeir http://astraeir.blogspot.com/

A year in the making, Igneous Flame has released his 10th solo album 'Lyra'

Since his 2003 debut release 'Tolmon', Igneous Flame has sought to create an evolving body of work and whilst 'Lyra' continues in that theme, it differs in that the approach taken to creating this work was significantly different to that taken for his previous albums.
The work was created using a previously unused set of tools and processes in order to experiment and explore in new directions. A diverse range of sounds sources and textures were employed and extensively processed. The primary instrumentation being electric guitar, nylon string guitar and synthesizers.

The work was created whilst engaged with the natural world as a primary source of inspiration - work in progress mixes were auditioned whilst walking through local woodland and re-worked back at the artist's studio. This process was repeated many times, until they were felt to be finished.

The material is primarily ethereal and meditative, with intermittent high-energy bursts and characteristic 'trans-tonal shifts'. In terms of production, a 'clean' approach was employed - full dynamic range was observed and preserved.

Special thanks to Kati Astraeir for deeply connecting with the music, to create the artwork for the album.

'Lyra' is a long-form double album release, both discs 1 and 2 run to almost 80 minutes of material each. Available as a limited edition high quality double CD-R package on the LuminaSounds site or digital download through CD Baby soon.

Can't wait. Ion and Orcus were epic.

I've been enjoying this quite a bit.  It is quite an epic at nearly 160 minutes, but well worth the listen.  Pete's brand of textural float is distinctive, but he mixes it up nicely with different layers of sound running simultaneously and an occasional suggestion of melody as well.  The bonus DVD of nearly 4-1/2 hours worth of videos with interesting morphing abstractions (some of which seem fractal in origin) was a treat, too. 

Thanks, Pete!

Thanks for the feedback Forrest, it's very much appreciated.

Cheers also for the comments on the videos, that's the first feedback I've got from them (apart from Youtube commenting).

Pete
