QUIVER – NEW ALBUM

A Sophisticated Handpan Journey

QUIVER encapsulates my highest handpan virtuosity level achieved so far and a state of the art recording and mastering ever been made. It has already ranked among the top selling handpan albums on Bandcamp. Keeping a solid and prudent approach to instrument’s naturalness, these 11 new compositions have come to texture a trans-phonic dimension for you with several layers of uniquely synthesized handpan sound. Plunge into a relaxing and sense-awakening sonic experience.

I remember the night OMEGA was finalised. I got the master disk, came back home – it was raining of course – and once I was done listening to it, there was a certain feeling:

“This is the last solo album I will release”.

I kept this line for about six years. The creator’s bug though was working inside me all this time. But I did not want to put something out just for the sake of doing it. It had to be really good, needless to mention a more solid statement than the previous release. This is the case for me. Each release needs to be more polished than the previous one.

QUIVER was difficult to make. I had to enter studio three times to record it and then another three for all the rest.

Overall a period of one full year. We literally paid attention to every single tiny detail. If the quality standards we’ve set were not met, then we had to re-work it again and again until it was done. Once it was ready I knew I was holding the best work I have ever produced to date.

One of the most interesting back-stories during the making of QUIVER, is that the collaboration between UnrealStudioz and me is founded upon the principles of the “Exchange Economy”. We reciprocated on each other’s needs under the commitment they would treat me an exceptional recording in exchange for a brand new website crafted by me. It’s an amazing new perspective when you…

realize that we can eradicate the monetary bariers!

This is QUIVER.

It’s all about the power within, a sparkle of renaissance. A perpetual arcing in the pursuit of constant improvement.

Enjoy the best piece of me!

Back Story

I remember the night OMEGA was finalised. I got the master disk, came back home – it was raining of course – and once I was done listening to it, there was a certain feeling:

 

“This is the last solo album I will release”.

I kept this line for about six years. The creator’s bug though was working inside me all this time. But I did not want to put something out just for the sake of doing it. It had to be really good, needless to mention a more solid statement than the previous release. This is the case for me. Each release needs to be more polished than the previous one.

QUIVER was difficult to make. I had to enter studio three times to record it and then another three for all the rest. Overall a period of one full year. We literally paid attention to every single tiny detail. If the quality standards we’ve set were not met, then we had to re-work it again and again until it was done.

Once it was ready I knew I was holding the best work I have ever produced to date.

There are a few interesting stories behind the making of this album. One of them is that the recordings are founded upon the principles of the “exchange economy”. I designed the website for the studio from scratch – we are talking about serious manhours – and the studio in exchange recorded my album. How amazing is this? Eradicating the use of money and all that wonderful political thinking that we can discuss over a coffee if we meet one day.

This is QUIVER!

The best piece of me. In a kick-ass custom-made packaging reflecting light into all sorts of colors.
