New Jogeir Liljedahl album released today

Hello folks,

I'm writing to let you know that my good friend and long-time fellow Amiga-scene musician Jogeir Liljedahl has released his second album, Out of Silence, today. As with his previous album The Wanderer, I was privileged to be trusted with the publishing/release, so the album is now for sale, exclusively, from the LynneMusic Download Shop.

The album features 11 new tracks from Jogeir, with a total playing time of 1 hour 3 minutes and with guest contributions from Chris Hülsbeck and Fabian Del Priore.

This is a download only release. The album can be purchased as MP3 files (256-kbps) for $10 or as Lossless FLAC files for $12. Both packages include high-resolution cover artwork with full 4-page booklet and inlay tray. The artwork comes as printable PDF files, so if you would like to make your own CD for your collection, you can print the artwork, burn the music to CD, and you have a fully official, legal, original CD.

The album will be made available on iTunes, PayPlay.fm and other such download shops, but it takes several weeks to get an album made public in those places, so for now it is only available in the LynneMusic Download Shop.

The album has an official page from which you can listen to the first 1 1/2 minutes from each track.

Jogeir and myself both very much hope that you will enjoy his new album. He worked on it, on and off, for an incredible period of 9 years. :-).

His previous album "The Wanderer" from 1999 is still available both as a physical CD and as an MP3 or FLAC download.

A couple of new rock tracks by Bjorn Lynne

It's been a while since I posted any new music. But here I am, back with a couple of new tracks. :-) This time I've tried to work more towards Rock than Electronica, and I've produced the two tracks below. Actually, I haven't done them all by myself.

The first track, Cruise Control, was made together with my old friend Arndt Kubosch. First, I made the "A" part. Then Arndt made the "B" part, and then we both made the "C" part together. We play about 50/50 of the guitar each, and I play the bass guitar and did the programming, production, etc. I've tried to keep this track "neat" and tidy with a minimum of reverb, delay and the such, which I've probably used a bit too much of in the past. :-). I've made two different mixes of the track. I'd be interested in hearing which one you like best, so please use the "comment" function below, if you have an opionion on that.

The other track, Slam Dunk, is much more energetic and heavier. This one I made almost all by myself. I just got some help from a Polish guy called Olek, to some of the faster guitar solos. I enjoyed making this track. The biggest challenge was the "B" part, for which I tried a lot of different things and threw away a lot of different ideas, before I finally ended on the one heard here.

Both tracks were made primarily for licensing to commercial users, for film, media, games, film trailers, sports video and things like that. If you'd like to license either of these tracks for use in any kind of project, you can buy a royalty-free license from Shockwave-Sound.com.

Well, I hope you'll enjoy the tracks. I have no idea what style/mood my next tracks will be in. :-)

Thanks for listening!

General update from Bjorn Lynne

Hey everybody,

I'm sorry about the long time of silence from me. It's been a long and nice summer here in Norway. I spent quite a bit of time outside with my daughter, who is now almost 8. Some of you will remember me posting about it on my newsletter mailing list when she was born. :-)

I have been working quite hard with my music publishing company, Lynne Publishing, which is now a publisher not only for my own Bjorn Lynne music, but also for a few other artists; Dan Gautreau, Dan Phillipson, Jeremy Sherman, Arjun Sen and Adolfo Marques (although only one track so far by the latter). This music isn't being published for personal use or for sale on CD's. Instead, we publish the music only for use in films, games and other commercial and non-commercial media. Our main website for this is Shockwave-Sound.com, but we also make the music available through some other sites.

I've also been working on my ever growing library of high definition sound effects. Again, this is for use by media developers, film makers and game creators, for use in their project. The library now sports some 3,000 sound effects, and all the new stuff we've added is available in High Definition audio, 24bit 48khz.

New Jogeir Liljedahl album coming

Many of you will be happy to hear that my good friend and long-time fellow Amiga scene musician, Jogeir Liljedahl (aka Noiseless, aka JL), is ready to release a new music album. His previous album "The Wanderer" was released back in 1999 and has sold well. His new album, to be titled Out of Silence comes a full 9 years after his previous effort, and this album will be released, right here at LynneMusic.com, as a download-only album. It will be available to buy both in lossless FLAC format and in MP3 format. The download will include the full album cover in high-resolution PDF files, so those who want to make themselves a real CD with cover and everything can burn a CD and print a cover from the supplied artwork files.

We hope to release the album in the next couple of weeks. Jogeir is just laying the finishing touches on a couple of the tracks, and writing some liner notes for the inside of the cover artwork. Keep your eyes on this site for updates.
