THE HAUNTED WORLD - NEW AMBIENT ALBUM 

Earlier this year I released an ambient album called The Haunted World exclusively to my Bandcamp subscribers. I am now making it available to everyone digitally and in a limited CD run of 100. 

Order The Haunted World limited CD & digital here 

I began recording The Haunted World back in 2013 while working on my albums with Steve Kilbey You are Everything through to Inside We Are The Same and finally completed it during All India Radio The Slow Light sessions. Inevitably the album has echoes of all these releases. 

The Haunted World is only All India Radio's second entirely beatless ambient album (the first was 2008's These Winter Dreams). 

I hope you enjoy it!

"My first experience with records was rather schizophrenic. The music I first remember hearing that actually stayed with me was the Sound of Music soundtrack and Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. You couldn’t get two more diametrically opposed albums if you tried.” 

“I remember sneaking into my older brother’s room while he was out and playing Dark Side of the Moon (he had his own record player) and gazing in wonder at the mysterious cover art and the pyramid poster on the wall. The music had the same effect on me: mysterious, strange, compelling." Full article

VIDEO PREMIERE OF CAN YOU HEAR THE SOUND 

Fantastic new review and video debut of Can you hear the Sound from new album The Slow Light filmed in a very summery Poland and directed by Łukasz Pytlik.

Review by Dave Cantrell in Stereo Embers:
"A little over a week ago SEM published a review of Martin Kennedy project All India Radio’s tenth album (and first in four years) The Slow Light, a critical hosanna that ended like this: ” As appreciable as the composer’s ability to produce a piece of work that so deftly interweaves the otherworldly with the solidly terrestrial may be, preserving his focus during what was in effect a 48-month (and likely much-interrupted) vision quest is perhaps the greater achievement..."

FANTASTIC REVIEW ON STEREO EMBERS! 

Another fabulous review, this time from Stereo Embers. My favourite line:

"One settles in, hits play, is instantly enveloped (opener “Blueshift” seduces a la Floyd’s “Shine On You Crazy Diamond”) and before one knows it finds oneself tripping along inside a tumbling spell of dreamlike evocations and cinematic glimpses as the poor pen does its desperate best to keep pace. These are the most sublime, mindful stupors I believe I’ve ever been in.." Full review here

Galaxy of Light is dear to my heart not the least for being my then twelve year old daughter’s first singing gig and video appearance, but it is also the embodiment of my love of science fiction (just wait until the last scene!) I made the video in a lo-fi way (because that’s all I know) with help from 1980s scifi artist Steve Dodd who allowed me to use his beautiful spacescapes, and Lance Gordon aka The Mad Alchemist, legendary San Francisco psychedelic light artist since the early 1970s, provided me with some custom psychedelic light work.
