THE HAUNTED WORLD - NEW AMBIENT ALBUM 

Earlier this year I released an ambient album called The Haunted World exclusively to my Bandcamp subscribers. I am now making it available to everyone digitally and in a limited CD run of 100.

I began recording The Haunted World back in 2013 while working on my albums with Steve Kilbey You are Everything through to Inside We Are The Same and finally completed it during All India Radio The Slow Light sessions. Inevitably the album has echoes of all these releases. 

The Haunted World is only All India Radio's second entirely beatless ambient album (the first was 2008's These Winter Dreams). 

I hope you enjoy it!

VIDEO PREMIERE OF CAN YOU HEAR THE SOUND 

Fantastic new review and video debut of Can you hear the Sound from new album The Slow Light filmed in a very summery Poland and directed by Łukasz Pytlik.

Review by Dave Cantrell in Stereo Embers:
"A little over a week ago SEM published a review of Martin Kennedy project All India Radio’s tenth album (and first in four years) The Slow Light, a critical hosanna that ended like this: ” As appreciable as the composer’s ability to produce a piece of work that so deftly interweaves the otherworldly with the solidly terrestrial may be, preserving his focus during what was in effect a 48-month (and likely much-interrupted) vision quest is perhaps the greater achievement..."

THE SPACE ART OF KAZUAKI IWASAKI 

Apart from music, one of my hobbies is sci-fi art, blogging about it, creating videos, buying it if I'm lucky enough to afford it, otherwise just simply looking at it. Kazuaki Iwasaki is one of the greats you've probably never heard of. Heavily influenced by US space art of the 1950s and 60s, he was 'Japan's Chesley Bonestell.' This is a little video I complied of his art from the book Visions of The Universe by Kazuaki Iwasaki, Isaac Asimov and Carl Sagan (Introduction) published in 1981 by Sagan's sadly short lived publishing house The Cosmos Store. The music is 'Shimmer' from the album The Silent Surf.

FALL REMIXES (INSTRUMENTALS FREE DOWNLOAD 

Hello everyone, 

It seems I am perpetually finding songs on my many hard drives that I've forgotten about. Today I found the instrumental versions of the Fall Remix album released a few years ago. I'd prepared them for a TV music opportunity last year but then went back to working on the new album and forgot all about them. 

So here they are for you for free.
