[11-2008] Interview with Ran Kirlian at Sonic Inmersion

Bert Strolenberg does an interview with Ran Kirlian at Sonic Inmersion, his website dedicated to electronic music. During the interview, I answer to questions regarding to my music, The Blue_Room studio and about my current and future projects.

A few pictures of me at The Blue_Room illustrate the interview, where part of the gear are visible in the current studio room (not blue btw). They are located at The Blue_Room gallery.

Some more promo pics were also done by my girlfriend using my modded IR camera under a cloudy december afternoon.

 

 

They were finally not used on the interview, but I found them nice and fitting the atmosphere of my music. A little gallery can be found at the Ran Kirlian Portraits gallery on the photography section.

 

 

 
 
[11-2008] New albums available for free download

In order to promote and spread my own work, I've decided to share my albums just for free (as I've done before thru file sharing tools). As well as I've done a year ago with my compilation albums Selected Works I and Selected Works II (now upgraded to 256kbps), 2 more albums are now available for download here: Limbo and Isolated Landscapes.

 

 

Those albums are now free for download under a Creative Common license. Audio quality are mp3 at 256kbps and cover art are included and ready for print. I've also increased the audio quality of Selected Works I and Selected Works II from 128 to 256kbps too, so there are 4 complete albums online just for free. Anyway, if someone wants to contribute with the artist and the website maintenance, I've installed a paypal donate button under the donate section. No minimum payment are required, any quantity are welcomed.

More albums will be available soon. Keep visiting this site for upcomming news.

 

 
 
[8-2008] - Atmosfear

Another real-time recording is now online with it's own video, this time mixing images from recording session with some infrared captures I did some time ago. Recorded on sunday, june 15 2008 at The BlueRoom by Ran Kirlian.

Story behind the video:
I use to like to visit desertic and abandoned places. One evening I was taking pictures in a place where nobody was except me while, suddenly, a strange kid appeared and wanted me to follow him to a place where he said there was something important buried I must discover. After some minutes walking in silent, we arrived to an old ruined school and then, he asked me to cross a door to find his friends but not to look at the right door, because there was the bad teacher room...


Synths:
- Korg MS2000: noise waves
- Oberheim OB12: big space pads
- Alesis Micron: filter pads
- Sounds like voices, bells, storms & other strange noises added on final mix.

Diaspora, a real-time improvisation performed and recorded on sunday feb 17 2008 at The BlueRoom. The video also includes scenes of sunshines and cloud storms recorded by myself from a window of my home. This is my first attempt to record a video around my music, so excuse me if it looks too amateur.

Tribal groove shoot via computer while recording the session. More information about my gear and more synthesizer facts can be found on my blog Celiar Structures.
