News and information not directly related to our own releases, or the music we sell in our store, but nonetheless of interest to the average Hypnos listener.

Hypnos HQ Moving Information

Hello everyone,

The time has come in our Hypnos Headquarters relocation when we need to take a short hiatus from posting our weekly sales. We’ve also temporarily deactivated our HYPNOS SECRET SOUNDS line, since we’ve had to pack up all our CDR printing and burning equipment. The ONLINE STORE, however, will remain open for business for now, so please feel free to place an order for any of our regular, in-stock items.

We thank you all very much for your patience and support during this extremely busy and tumultuous period of time, and we promise to return soon with more great deals for you!

Changes Coming – Downloads and More

We’ll have some exciting changes coming soon, primarily related to our first digital download store. As soon as we finish up beta testing, we’ll be opening the door to the public. Though we plan a sort of “soft open” for the store, with just a few products available at first, we plan to steadily ramp up and increase our offerings.

We’ll start out by offering a handful of Hypnos titles for download, then increase the Hypnos (and Binary and Hypnos Secret Sounds) offerings until most of those are listed.

After that, we look forward to offering digital downloads from other labels, starting with some of the music we already sell on CD in our Hypnos Online Store. Again, we’ll start small and gradually ramp this up.

The next phase after that, perhaps most exciting of all, is when we start selling downloads from other labels and artists not currently represented in our store. We envision our store becoming a hub for ambient, electronic and experimental music, with a mix of CD and download items. While physical space requirements keep us from offering more than 1,000 or so titles on our Hypnos Online Store, digital downloads don’t take up any physical space, so we might end up offering thousands of titles.

Here’s to the future! We’ll have more specific news very soon.

Secret Music Oophoi Tribute

Scott Raymond’s April 14 Secret Music playlist in tribute to Oophoi was especially comprehensive, and included tracks from all four of Oophoi’s solo and collaborative works on Hypnos. Thank you, Scott!

Here’s my playlist for Sunday, April 14, 2013. No show last week, as I had to work. On today’s show, I played several pieces featuring Gianluigi Gasparetti, aka Oophoi, who passed away earlier this week. A great talent gone too soon.

Oophoi Tribute on Sunday Evening Sinewaves

Due to the recent passing of Gianluigi Gasparetti, better known as Oophoi (see previous news item), several radio stations have played some of his music. Perhaps the most interesting and original idea comes from Darren Bergstein, host of Sunday Evening Sinewaves, in which he plays only artists/groups whose name begins with “O,” in tribute to Oophoi. A couple of Hypnos items are included. Thank you, Darren.
