Distance, time and space
Today I have reached another milestone in my life and career. The release of the album REMOTE GALAXY is a fact.
The digital album is released worldwide today, and in a few weeks, the physical products are out: both the Pure Audio Blu-ray and the vinyl double LP. The Blu-ray contains several audio streams, with 9.1 surround as the most spectacular technical feature. Of course, the good old stereo is available in all formats, and for the LP enthusiast, the vinyl double album might be worth checking out.
More than four years have gone since the previous release, the Grammy nominated FLUTE MYSTERY (2L, Philharmonia Orchestra / Ashkenazy / Beynon), and many thoughts and feelings are connected to the process of making a sequel. Besides composing the music, which never is more work than exhaling air, all the practical aspects connected to a huge production involving approximately 100 musicians are first and foremost a lot of planning and collaboration with the producer. Simply put: a lot of plain hard work.
Thus, it is a true privilege and honour to once again work with outstanding performers such as the Philharmonia Orchestra and Maestro Vladimir Ashkenazy and the soloists Emily Beynon, Mark van de Wiel and Ralph Rousseau. And it is always a pleasure collaborating with 2L, the innovative record label that never compromises with quality. So, I wish to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all of them.
As sure as I get up in the morning, music will fill my day. As sure as I meet the world and sense any "grandness" in the surroundings, music arises. This means that my days always are intense and challenging because I have no safety net or something to help me filter out certain impressions and thoughts. This might be related to my life with Asperger's and Tourette's syndromes, a condition that instantly puts me in an alternative spot in a conventional world. For me, it is all about how to handle distance, time and space and eventually leaving a musical fingerprint on a sheet of paper.
REMOTE GALAXY is available in iTunes and a lot of other places as digital album today, and I hope that my musical fingerprint might give the listeners a rewarding and lasting experience.
Today is a milestone.
Best wishes from
