Music : Fiona Joy Hawkins releases new album - BLUE DREAM - on SACD
Fiona Joy Hawkins releases new album - BLUE DREAM - on SACDThe headlines may read like a dream tale now, but the road to musical success has been long for Australia's reigning New Age composer and pianist, Fiona Joy Hawkins, who is about to become that country's first indie artist to release an album on SACD.

The album was produced in surround sound, and is available in traditional CD format as well as SACD. According to Hawkins, the team didn't try to re-create an accurate live sound stage effect, but rather a Soundscape Experience that creates more of a dream effect. The album was engineered and mixed by Corin Nelson and mastered by the legendary Bob Ludwig of Gateway Mastering.

Music : Namlook Le Mar DTS-CD
Namlook Le Mar
(Pete Namlook & Gabriel Le Mar)

This first collaboration of Pete Namlook and Gabriel Le Mar is a perfect combination of two worlds in Chill-Out and Ambient. While both artists have composed and released electronic music for over a decade, each followed a different path. While Namlook was often more on the beatless path of deep instrumental music, Le Mar had a strong connection to dub music and percussive content. Both developed their personal style and now combined their ideas to a perfect match in music. Percussive, melodic, organic monochrome, even a minimalistic electro-techno track is part of this album. The variety of unique organic music with its intense quality, makes you listen to it over and over again.

CD tracks: Acidflow 6.39 / Springtimer 11.03 / Deepa 9.07
In Time 7.38 / Jetzt 6.37 / Flow 13.36
