AtmoWorks is proud to release two brand new albums this weekend:

* Vir Unis | Disturbed Earth - Drawn From the Well
* Jonathan Hughes - Circumflex

Both albums are available from the http://www.atmoworks.com store in either 320 kbps mp3 download or cdr format. AtmoWorks cdr's are also available at the Hypnos Store - http://www.hypnos.com

Vir Unis | Disturbed Earth - Drawn From the Well



Disturbed Earth and Vir Unis have teamed up to bring you a three long track journey into pastoral tones and ethereal shades of sheer atmospherics.

Recorded in late spring of this year, these two artists trading tracks over the net, were so happy with the results, they've decided to record a series of albums with this process. Drawn From the Well is the first part of this collaborative series between these two.

Jonathan Hughes - Circumflex



Jonathan Hughes' debut album for AtmoWorks. We're very proud to have a musician of Jonathan's talent releasing with us.

In Jonathan's words from the liner notes: "I'm a big fan of words in general, but specifically of words that evoke a certain feeling or image, but mean something completely unrelated. I'm also a fan of the minutiae that makes up the language of various industries. The titles for all the tracks on Circumflex are typographical terms. To me, these particular words sound like they'd be equally at home in a document from NASA as they would in a book about graphic design. I wish I could say that the titles had some deep connection to the music, but nope -- they just sounded cool."

Jonathan has previously released acclaimed albums on The Foundry label including Trillium and the virtual collaboration project, Fluidities, where each track on cd1 could be played randomly with tracks from cd2.

Coming in the next few months!

* Steve Brand - SoulSpiral (planned for July 18)

* Exuviae - The White Underneath
* Camera - Fire and Science
* Igneous Flame | Achromus - HALO
* Disturbed Earth - Sleep of Wonder
* Vir Unis - Stand Still Like the Hummingbird

* Relaxed Machinery - Temporal Arc (reissue)
* Exuviae - Settling Density (reissue)
* Exuviae - Response (reissue)
* Mark Tamea - Buried Traktora (reissue)

We also have projects from Numina, mjdawn, Paul Vnuk, Float Method, Mikronaught, and Autumn in Analog in the works for later this year.

Thank you for supporting the artists and AtmoWorks!

I finally got around to ordering Drawn from the Well, and this is a superb release.  The first looong track is a gorgeous, pastoral, serene piece that brings to mind the drones of Alio Die and the Sylvian/Czukay albums.  Lovely stuff!
