Hi, I'm not sure if this got already discussed, but are there Hypnos releases planned for this year ?

Hi Wanterkeelt


We've talked about plans from time to time but there's nothing wrong asking for an update.


Simply put, I've been a bit slack about pushing forward with new CD projects, though there are several in the queue.


Up next will be the 2nd Seren Ffordd & Oophoi collaboration and our first release by Max Corbacho.


We'd also like to resume our Seren Ffordd reissue series on Hypnos Secret Sounds, though we'll be changing the nature of those editions a little bit.


There's also a new Seren Ffordd solo in the Hypnos pipeline, though I don't want to do too much stuff by a single artist without breaking things up a bit.


I'm also beginning to plan an album of my own, though I'm not sure if I expect this to come out late in 2015 or early in 2016.

I recently picked up Corbacho's "The Ocean Inside" album.  Really nice all around, very deep ambient textures.

Any news on the next Hypnos release?

Are the Oophoi and Corbacho discs still coming out on Hypnos?

mgriffin

Sorry for the slow reply. That's still the plan. I've been talking with Seren Ffordd about that one, and need to get back in touch with Max Corbacho.


No real problems are preventing these from moving forward other than the intrusion of "real life" into Hypnos time!

I think Hypnos was devoured by a Cthulhu monster.  ;)
Take care.

QuoteFor they deny that I sold the last of my statuary, and point with ecstasy at the thing which the shining shaft of light left cold, petrified, and unvocal. It is all that remains of my friend; the friend who led me on to madness and wreckage; a godlike head of such marble as only old Hellas could yield, young with the youth that is outside time, and with beauteous bearded face, curved, smiling lips, Olympian brow, and dense locks waving and poppy-crowned. They say that that haunting memory-face is modeled from my own, as it was at twenty-five; but upon the marble base is carven a single name in the letters of Attica - HYPNOS.

Many of the Lovecraftians I know think I named Hypnos after Lovecraft's story.

What and when is the next Hypnos release? 

drone on

It's about 1 year after the post about Seren w/*Oophoi and Corbacho CDs being up next but no info recently about what if anything is being released this year.  Any news?

Wanterkeelt

Is there any possibility we might see a new Hypnos release in the future ? Or is the label dead ?

mgriffin

I don't think of Hypnos as dead as a label, but I understand that when a long period of time passes between releases, people will assume it is.


Our mail order operation is continuing, and we've devoted some time to switching from our old, long-established Hypnos Online Store to our new Soundswim.com store. The old store will be shut off any day now, and when that happens we'll start adding new products to the new store.


And of course I realize that if I don't start putting out new CDs, at least a few per year, people will perceive the label as dead. I don't see it as finished, but rather than make promises, I know I've just got to work on it. I intend to do so, and hope that when we do release new CDs, people will support that effort.

Thanks for the info. Until new releases I'll keep spinning the old Hypnos CDs...

Indeed I thought so (but happy to read now that it's not actually the case).

Looking forward to any new releases!  :)

To me it appears to be more of an undead label.  ;D
Take care.
