Monique Music Library - mml 011 - Johanna D'Armagnac - The Art Of Synergy
Another MML obscurity, here are five atmospheric pieces made with the legendary Synergy Synthesizer, pictured on the wonderful cover. As usual with MML, info is scarce, so I know nothing about this composer. Please leave a comment if you do. Amazing music, enjoy!
Smoother than expected this one, having bought it after hearing Rimbert's synthy Bionic Orchestra (shared on 36 15 MOOG). Several tunes here remind me of Mezzoforte and their many Japanese and American counterparts doing catchy popjazz. Rimbert also has a few releases on April Orchestra that would be great getting.
Picked up a few cds from Cosmos, which I think is an Austrian label. Couldn't find much info, anyone know when this was released? Composers are Ryszard Szeremeta, Peer Böhm, Jim Glass, Ron Rich, Eric Stone, Louis Reede, Peter Hunt and Otakar Olsanik, enjoy!
VA - When We Once Lived - The Best Of Media Music Library, Selected By Jimmy Michaels
Another kind offering from the vaults of Jimmy Michaels, here's a beautiful set of tunes from Capitol's Media Music Library :)
"23 tracks hand picked from the late 70s and early 80s of my faves out of the material that survived in the archives of media music. All digitally remastered from the original master tapes (no vinyl transfers). I was actually trying to get this compilation released in 2007, but the investment costed too much for my very small indie label, and it would have never panned out in profit. So after finding your blog.. its now time to give it away for free to folks that would appreciate it :) Hope you and everyone else will enjoy it."
