Beyond the Purple Sun

by Jim Ottaway

Dark Spaces 07:37


Award winning Australian composer and synthesist Jim Ottaway has released his new ambient album ‘Beyond the Purple Sun’. This album follows the release of Jim’s albums ‘Yesterday Passing’ and the international award-winning ‘Timeless e-Motion’ and ‘Deep Space Blue’.

‘Beyond the Purple Sun’ is Jim’s 13th international release.

‘Beyond the Purple Sun’ is a continuation of Jim's series of space ambient releases including ‘Deep Space Blue’, ‘Southern Cross’, ‘Orion’, ‘Aurora’, ‘Centauri’ and ‘Liquid Moon’. The album is made up of seven tracks all representing aspects of a space journey beyond the purple sun. Once again Jim takes you on a journey to the far reaches of the universe, where you will learn the secrets of the hidden stars, pass through majestic celestial rainbows and view some beautiful lavender moons. You will also feel the raw energy of space lightning and witness the birth of a quasar.

Jim says that he compiled this album from tracks recorded as early as October 2010 and wrapped up recording and production in February 2019. Jim notes in the album liner notes that “All tracks are live improvised studio recordings with minimal overdubs”.

While trying to create his own style of electronic music Jim acknowledges the influence artists such as Tangerine Dream, Edgar Froese, Enigma, Vangelis, Pink Floyd, Johannes Schmoelling, Christopher Franke, Code Indigo, Gary Wright, Loom, Radio Massacre International, and Aussie artists… Christopher Buckman, Tony O'Connor and Lisa Gerrard, on his music.

Official release date: 12 April 2019.
