Jaja news
« on: January 01, 2017, 01:50:19 PM »
Happy new year to all. I thought I would better make a "news" thread to minimize the future amount of threads for single "release announcement" and for further updates inbetween the times.

This new year started for me with two new years eve releases. Both albums are different but also very much related to each other. I post-produced them both in the two last weeks and both fine tuned them until yesterday. This is ultra quiet music with some audible noises from the hardware gear.

My album plans for "Arcturus" are delayed until the mid/end of this year as this is a double album and needs a bit more intense work and some additional recordings.

Beyond the horizons



01 - Reflections
02 - Horizons
03 - 1001 stars
04 - Eternal space

Beyond the horizons is the third part of the contemporary EP-series which features piano and classical music. It is a contemplative musical interpretation of thoughts and worlds beyond what can be said and refers to the Japanese aesthetics Yūgen. The four songs were composed and played live on my Roland JD-800 synthesizer in winterly nights of January/February 2016. Main frequency of the EP is 429,0 Hz.

Through the belt of Orion



Part I - Through the belt of Orion
Part II - Amorphous void
Part III - The stars and divine forms
Part IV - Red blue shift
Part V - The solitude of space

This album was written in late winter nights in December 2016 where our companions were the stars of Orion every night until the early morning. Orion is one of the mystic old star constellations and carries an amazing world of deep sky objects. This album is premiering my new Roland XV-88 synthesizer. Besides I used several outboard equipment by TC Electronic, Akai, DBX and Allen & Heath. The main album frequency is 429,2 Hz.

There are no CD-plans right now but both releases will be available in the future as limited CDr-editions.

Best, Jana

This is a video to one of the new songs: "Amorphous void". Some may know the scenery from the game "Scania Truck Driving Simulator".

Well it depends a little bit on your taste in sounds. While there is no change in my musical compositions and themes over the years,
the sound changed with the change of gear. I recommend the last 5 releases: Sparkles, Stellaris, Milky Way, Beyond the horizons, Through the belt of Orion.

Keep in mind, all releases are available as free download version, best listening experience is WAV !

Meant to say this before, but I really enjoyed the last two releases. I need to make time for a more concentrated listen on headphones. So far I have only played them through the stereo.

My new album is out now:



This album features pure instrumentation by the Roland XV-88 and the Lexicon PCM92. As always, this is ultra quiet music.
The recordings are from live sessions in late sommer nights of 2016. The music is totally inspired by the star Arcturus.

One day on Arcturus in a dream of time....
