Sam Watts Releasing 'The Forest'

Sam Watts will release his debut album, The Forest, on August 18. Sam is known first and foremost for his extensive work as a media composer, having scored programmes such as Sarah Jane Adventures, Planet Earth Diaries and most recently Battling The Bailiffs. However, he decided to dedicate significant time in 2016 to creating original material, which has resulted in three studio albums, The Forest being the first of these scheduled for release. The inspiration behind the album came from a dog-walk where Sam decided to create the soundtrack of a 24 hour period in a forest, encapsulating nature from sunrise to sundown. Combining string quartet with modern electronics and vintage synths, the album comprises 10 post-classical instrumentals building from quiet and mysterious ambience to dark and brooding motifs.Listen here

Einaudi's 'Elegy For The Arctic': One Year On

To mark the anniversary of Ludovico Einaudi’s ‘Elegy For The Arctic’, Greenpeace have released a Making Of video showing behind the scenes footage from Einaudi’s performance in the Arctic Ocean. Greenpeace have released the following statement in support of the video release: "The silence broken by the noise of the glacier as it fell off. Some notes torn from a grand piano floating in a sea of ice. Thus began the shocking video with which master Ludovico Einaudi put the soundtrack to the campaign to save the Arctic. It was recorded in Svalbard, in the Norwegian Arctic, just a year ago and managed to bring the thawing problem closer to millions of people around the world. It was not easy to do, but the result was worth it. Discover how one of the most magical moments was built in this campaign that seeks to protect one of the most threatened corners of the planet and on which we all depend." A year on, the campaign to the protect the Arctic is still underway. Einaudi states "One year ago I played ‘Elegy for the Arctic’ in support to the campaign for a marine sanctuary in the North Pole’s international waters; one year has passed, “Save the Arctic” is still a global priority. We still need your support." You can sign the petition here - https://www.savethearctic.org/. Watch here

Konx-om-Pax Signs To Aim Low / Music Sales

Konx-om-Pax aka Tom Scholefield has signed with Aim Low, a joint venture publishing company with Music Sales. As a producer, he's released two LPs on Planet Mu, the first of which was a resolutely melancholy and grainy take on pastoral IDM, shaped by living alone in Glasgow. In contrast, his last LP, Caramel, is a high-definition environment created during a move from his hometown to Berlin. Scholefield will be releasing Refresher EP this August on Planet Mu, a more dance floor friendly endeavour. Scholefield is also one of electronic music's finest designers. He created an iconic video clip for Jamie Lidell and Warp while still in art school in Glasgow, leading to a series of sleeves and videos for a who's who of experimental artists and labels. Saturated neon colours, classic '80s sci-fi and early modernist cues are recurrent themes in a vivid aesthetic that's instantly recognisable. Optimo Espacio, Hyberdub, Brainfeeder and DFA are all past clients and he's helped shape the visual identities of Oneohtrix Point Never, Hudson Mohawke and Kuedo. But while learning his trade, he was booking the likes of Autechre and Squarepusher and running knees deep in a Glaswegian scene home to everyone from Rustie to Optimo, Eclair Fifi and the Numbers crew.

Peter Gregson Releases Quartets: One

On July 7th, Peter Gregson will release an EP of new string quartet music, Quartets: 001 via his own label, cabinbaggage (distributed by Believe Digital).

This is the first of Gregson’s releases where he has not played his cello, preferring here to focus on writing for the quartet. An early track premiere on Headphone Commute, which called the EP “simply gorgeous, with no need for further words”, has led to international radio play for ‘The Day Before’. Listen here

Music Sales Signs Tyrone Noonan

Music Sales Creative is overjoyed to announce its signing of Tyrone (“Ty”) Noonan to a worldwide music publishing deal with Embassy Music Publishing Australia, completed recently in the company’s New York office with Managing Director, Jane English and Creative Director, Denise Sharp. This will see Tyrone published worldwide by the Music Sales Group of affiliates. ARIA award-winning Tyrone Noonan began a multi-faceted solo career following his time with numerous bands culminating with eight years on the road with george, a Brisbane band fronted by sister and brother, Katie Noonan and Tyrone. In george, Tyrone provided vocals, guitar, keyboards, production and song writing. george’s debut album, Polyserena, entered the Australian national charts at No1, sold double platinum units and won the band an ARIA for Best New Artist. The band released eight EPs, two albums and an award-winning DVD. Last year george celebrated its 20-year anniversary, performed sell-out shows around the country and released a new album compilation of their early indie EPs, the early years. In 2005, george came off the road for an indefinite hiatus and Tyrone went it alone: releasing his debut pop/rock/soul mini-album “Heavy Soul Part 1” in 2006 with a successful national tour and solid national radio play; relocating to London in 2008 and representing Australia at various festivals including Toast and TNT Month of Music; relocating to New York in 2009 (until 2012) and representing Australia at various Australia Day festivals and Anzac Day ceremonies; releasing his first solo album, I Believe, in 2011 on the back of a successful crowd-funded Pledge Music campaign; and releasing his remix EP I’m A Believer in 2014 with a successful east coast band tour and solid national radio play. It was Tyrone’s album Soniclines that brought him once again to the attention of Embassy Music Publishing. Recently returned to Australia from New York, Tyrone formed a new band, Soniclines, that has produced an amazing cross-over album of the same name that is due for release in 2017. That group comprises Tyrone, multi-instrumentalist Anthony Garcia and special guest digeridoo player, William Barton. Soniclines is soon to be developed into a magnificent visual stage performance. A prolific songwriter and producer, Tyrone is now working towards a new solo album. He has ready to go co-writes with Grant (G.W.) McLennan (The Go-Betweens), Dave Goode (The Potbelleez) and Dan Rosen (ARIA CEO), among others.
