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' VIDEO PREMIERE ON POPMATTERS 

Check out Popmatters for a great article and the video premiere of Galaxy of Light from the new album The Slow Light.

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.

THE SPACE ART OF KAZUAKI IWASAKI 

Apart from music, one of my hobbies is sci-fi art, blogging about it, creating videos, buying it if I'm lucky enough to afford it, otherwise just simply looking at it. Kazuaki Iwasaki is one of the greats you've probably never heard of. Heavily influenced by US space art of the 1950s and 60s, he was 'Japan's Chesley Bonestell.' This is a little video I complied of his art from the book Visions of The Universe by Kazuaki Iwasaki, Isaac Asimov and Carl Sagan (Introduction) published in 1981 by Sagan's sadly short lived publishing house The Cosmos Store. The music is 'Shimmer' from the album The Silent Surf.

FOUR THREE VIDEO WITH NEW HI-REZ AUDIO 

This is a new version of the 'Four Three' video from our album Echo Other (2007) with a high resolution (24bit-48khz) audio. The hi rez version was mastered by Francois Tetaz (Wolf Creek soundtrack, Gotye). Yes it's same crappy lo-fi video but now with new higher resolution audio! The re-upload was long overdue as the original video upload back in 2007 was an embarrassingly low resolution of 240p.

ASIMOV + FOSS + ALL INDIA RADIO!  

If I do say so myself!

The Foundation trilogy by Isaac Asimov was reissued in 1977 with new artwork by Chris Foss and reissued again in 1979 in a superb slipcase by Panther books in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Being the wide-eyed scifi-obsessed adolescent I was at the time the artwork, although infamous for having nothing to do with the books, had *everything* to me buying and reading them!

FALL REMIXES (INSTRUMENTALS FREE DOWNLOAD 

Hello everyone, 

It seems I am perpetually finding songs on my many hard drives that I've forgotten about. Today I found the instrumental versions of the Fall Remix album released a few years ago. I'd prepared them for a TV music opportunity last year but then went back to working on the new album and forgot all about them. 

So here they are for you for free.
