August 21, 2012, 6:39 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Harlequins Enigma's the long road ep featuring tori amos was done in åge riisnes' primal year of 2009. The band's heights led to special music in both 8 bit & 16 bit. The piano was a tough challenge for åge who is usually electronica orientated. With the help of tori amos he more then got by, & look at her as a professional inspirator. åge took his root, the amiga with him into the next millenium & while he composed 16 bit, he wondered if something was missing in his life & wiped the dust of the amiga 1200. 600 pieces were shaped in 16 bit & 8 bit from 08 till 2010. The 8 bit results were highly appreciated, & can be seen in the ophidian series released not so long ago. He felt it as the parallel between 16 bit midi & 8 bit tracking filled him up & made him a better artist. the tori amos material consist of 8 tracks.

Harlequins enigma's octagon vol. 4 - loom album was done in åge`s prime year 2009. With support from elin berge, sara jensen, tangerine dream & vangelis the album got comepleted. In the end feelings of joy arose in the band & they felt they had accomplished a classical/new age album to be reckoned with. Much of the material is heartfelt. Inspirators under the making of the full album came from norvegian classical composer edvard grieg, & also the works of ludvig van beethoven. åge's classical interest upon the years have been mainly grieg, beethoven, mozart, smetana, tchaikovsky, wagner, rachmaninov, vivaldi, pachelbel, ravel, bach, mendelsohn & a few others. åge does never settle for one style only, at least not so far. Maybe the future studio he dreams of will lead him finally to his favourite genre & settle for it. At a later time & another doze of relaxation, new albums from harlequins enigma in coop with tangerine dream, vangelis & jean michel jarre will appear. Economically for harlequins enigma, this means that releasing these 5 coop albums will cost them an arm & a leg, which means they will come, but be prepared to see them later then you expect they inform. The planned releases are spread in a triple tangerine dream album, featuring ex-tangerine dream members & others. 1 jarre album & 1 vangelis album, all featuring additional artists. This 4th octagon release consist of 11 16 bit tracks. Keywords for the album is strings, flute, brass, bells, piano & classical vocals.

Both albums will be out asap via zimbalam, their distributor. they have at the current time only been released digitally. Owner åge riisnes urge media to confront the coop artists on both albums, to verify that the telapathy matter between parties in coop is a reality that works for composers in our world, 2 distant places at the same time. Harlequins enigma`s entire music database was made that way, unless he was alone. åge riisnes will later investigate a 2nd distributor who can provide the world with 16bit 44.1 wav files as an alternative to the compressed mp3 & m4a formats currently available in common music stores today.
