New EP/mini album "ECHOTIDES" released!



"ECHOTIDES" is deeply expansive and contemplative electronic music. These sonic identities reflect the ever
changing alternatives in nature and our environments. It’s music that is rich in depth and colors with echoes
of memories and imaginary places, epic dimensions and a minimalist’s restrained elegance.

April 14 2015:
New album "BLUE RADIANCE" released!



The album title "BLUE RADIANCE" suggests music from the blue and icy tone spectrum; from the darker blue
to the almost snowy white. However here are a broad spectrum of feelings and atmospheres, all infused with
high creativity and imagination. Intricate, sparkling and carefully shaped. Music that takes you to wondrous
places that is both enigmatic and eclectic.
