Hi.
On Friday 17 June, I released the 9th album in the "Harmonium Diaries" series.
Of all the albums it is the longest, at 58 minutes. It also conatains the longest piece, at over 10 minutes. This piece is special also for the reason that it is not named after the date of it's recording, but the name of the public holiday, "Anzac Day".
I think "April" is the strongest album so far. It is solid and bleak, but there are some more cheerful moments sprinkled here and there.

Here is an mp3:

I hope you all like it.
Cheers
Chris

I was confused by this at first too. It's a great thing to be reminded that we even take what season it is for granted. Our minds are great at making things seem more "real" than they really are. We live in an illusion we create, and most of the time other people reinforce these illusions, unless they are not. Smile

You guys know that it is Autumn here in April don't you. Surprised
Think about this: Christmas here is Summer. We have BBQs for lunch.

Thanks for the words chaps.
Campbell is a hero here now, not only for NZers, but especially Maori. Golf is rich persons sport, and Maori aren't generally very rich, so for Campbell to do this well is pretty amazing. Also it got our rugby team off the front page. If only they treated (ambient harmonium) artists the same!
Don't worry Stein, it will be soon!
Cool

Thanks again for the words guys. I am really pleasded you like it Stein. Maybe "bleak" is the wrong word. maybe you can help me think of better ones!
I am interested in getting your opinion on how it works as an album. Does it work as a whole, or does it seem like 20 pieces? Does "Anzac Day" seem part of the it, or does it stand outside the rest?
Anyway, I am just pleased you like it. Thats waht we do it for, right? Very Happy

Great one Seraph. I am pleased it arrived ok, and I hope you enjoy it. Maybe "enjoy" isn't the word, but anyways, I hope you get something from it.
Cheers
Chris
