Newly Arrived: Steve Brand – Over-soul

We have the latest special limited edition CDR from Steve Brand newly added to the Hypnos store.

Steve Brand – Over-Soul (Ltd CDR)
(Steve Brand category)

(Price: $16.99 LTD CDR) Limited First Edition CDr in 5×7″ bi-fold booklet, first edition limited to 50, signed, hand-numbered and assembled.

The long form version of Over-soul began as a seed of an idea—a track just over 9 minutes on my 2011 self-released album, “Upwelling.” The original inspiration for this long form piece was my readings from various esoteric sources, and the idea that although we may see ourselves as separate, isolated and alone, in fact we all are individual expressions of one unifying, all-encompasing source, and therefore linked to that source and ultimately to one another.

Over the past 3 years, I’ve expanded and elaborated on this original idea. The result is this 61 minute long form piece, divided into three seamless dexpanses of driftscape: i-The Wise Silence; ii-The Collective Heart; iii-Unity. Over-soul was created entirely with keyboards and medicine drum.”
-Steve Brand

“…a haunting drone piece that is awash with sound & texture, a piece that moves and evolves throughout the hour — Steve Brand is a consistently excellent musician and Over-Soul is a timely reminder.”-Headphonaught…..(MORE/BUY)

CD Release: Forget the Past by Antonio Testa & Michel Moglia

Antonio Testa ( may be best known for his ethno-ambient collaborations with Alio Die, but he has also released a diverse variety of solo ambient music on such labels as Hic Sunt Leones, Faria and Emit. Testa’s collaborator Michel Moglia, credited here with fire organ, flute and drones, will be a new name to most.


Often ambient recordings pursue a single sub-genre or niche — dark ambient, ethno ambient or drone, for example — and stick faithfully to it. Forget the Past exhibits a pleasing diversity, with plenty of gently atmospheric stretches, rthythms that sometimes fade out and at other times build to a wicked trance churn. The sound is clean, yet derives from a full list of natural and organic sound source, and a diverse set of field recordings.

One track lays gritty, hallucinogenic flute lines over a slow-swooping psychedelic rhythm mechanism and incantatory female whispers and recitations like an overheard magic spell. Another mixes bird sounds and subtle electronic atmosphere with distantly echoing percussion, creating something like a soundtrack to a lost film by Alejandro Jodorowsky. Percussion with a tribal or ethno flavor is used in an unusual way, not to fake a specific brand of exoticism, but to create a sense of something both intuitively familiar and also strangely foreign.



Forget The Past covers a lot of sonic ground and a broad range of moods, but it’s always unpredictible and fresh, while remaining smooth, introspective and restrained. We’re very proud to bring this recording to Hypnos listeners, and trust that the sample clips will convince many of you to give this a full listen.

Purchase for $12.99 (discounted to $8.99 Dec 11 through 17)

Newly Arrived AD21 CDs By Max Corbacho and Bruno Sanfilippo

One of our favorite foreign labels is AD21, which is run by Bruno Sanfilippo who already has a Hypnos CD release, as well as Max Corbacho who will also release something on Hypnos soon. All the products of their label are classy, beautiful and definitely worth checking out. Here are some new arrivals, and other AD21 items were restocked as well.

Max Corbacho – The Ocean Inside (2CD)
(AD21 category)

(Price: $19.99 2CD) Max Corbacho returns with a new work, this time as a double album, which again immerse ourselves into touching atmospheric ambient realms of pure beauty. The Ocean Inside is a paradise of lush, cascading long chords, as oceanic waves, back and forth, in an eternal flow of shifting tones and spiraling harmonies. This is music aimed at energy, emotional and mind levels, for listeners who love deep, meditative ambient music…

Bruno Sanfilippo – Piano Textures 3
(AD21 category)

(Price: $13.99) “Had a listener’s only exposure to Bruno Sanfilippo come about through hearing his recent Hypnos recording Urbs, said listener would have identified him as an exceptionally refined sound-sculptor working in the electro-acoustic ambient field. But the classically trained Sanfilippo also issues minimalist piano recordings, of which Piano Textures 3 is a particularly impressive example.”…

Bruno Sanfilippo & Max Corbacho – Bioma
(Price: $13.99)
“BIOMA (In english, Biome), is a large community of plants and animals that occupies a distinct region. Terrestrial biomes, typically defined by their climate and dominant vegetation, include grassland, tundra, desert, tropical rainforest, and deciduous and coniferous forests. There are two basic aquatic biomes, freshwater and marine, which are sometimes further broken down into categories such as lakes and rivers or pelagic, benthic, and intertidal zones. The idea of this album was born after some field recordings made in different places in the province of Tarragona, Spain, during spring 2010. The electronics were created a year later in the recording studio of each artist and assembled in the sequencer to the final mix. The result of this union is a particular and unique Biome, a real living, mesmerizing and breathing system on a single long form track of nearly 59 minutes…
