Vallenfyre
(UK) / April 27, 2014


RECORDING COMPANIES:

Ancient-Future.Com Records
(USA) / April 27, 2014

Forthcoming release:

  • Ancient Future – “Yearning for the Wind”

    Ancient-Future.Com Records presents ’Yearning for the Wind’ by Ancient Future. Composed by scalloped fretboard guitar innovator Matthew Montfort, 'Yearning for the Wind' is a poignant piece based on Rag Kalyan, an evening raga that corresponds to the Lydian mode. The composition also incorporates harmony and other guitaristic elements. A duet with Indian tabla virtuoso Vishal Nagar, who is considered one of the most gifted tabla players of his generation, 'Yearning for the Wind' is set in matta tal, a nine beat rhythmic cycle. As a bridge between the slow and fast sections of the piece, Vishal Nagar performs an elegant tabla solo over the soft nine beat groove that slowly builds up to a vibrant rela (a fast tabla composition characterized by rapid drum rolls). 'Yearning for the Wind' is the first audio/video release in Ancient Future history. It is also the first brand new Ancient Future studio recording released to the general public since 2002's Planet Passion. It isn't that Ancient Future hasn't been active. Indeed, Ancient Future has recorded over three hours of music in this period, much of it live. But rather than release it all in a market where a low value is placed on music while a high value is placed on the tech companies that deliver it, Ancient Future has taken a different approach. Recorded in December 2013, this evocative piece was produced for the Archive of Future Ancient Recordings, Ancient Future's ambitious ongoing recording project. To finance A.F.A.R., Ancient-Future.Com Records provides financial supporters access to select files from Ancient Future's archives of alternate takes, live concerts, radio performances and new studio recordings as they are created. On February 11, 2014, the exact 35th anniversary of the first Ancient Future concert, 'Yearning for the Wind' became the 10th track added to the archive and was made available to A.F.A.R. supporters in mp3, CD quality, and 96-kHz/24-bit hi-res audio and HD video. To promote the Archive of Future Ancient Recordings, an enhanced E-CD of 'Yearning for the Wind' with the audio, HD video, and digital liner notes will be available at online stores such as Ancient-Future.Com and Amazon.com starting June 17, 2014. But fans can download 'Yearning for the Wind' now on iTunes and other digital retailers.
