Theo Travis to release hour-long duduk meditation produced by Steven Wilson

From Loudersound.

Robert Fripp and Steven Wilson collaborator Theo Travis is to release Aelous, an hour-long mediation recorded using a duduk, an Armenian wind instrument sometimes described as ‘the saddest sounding instrument in the world’, through Panegyric Records on September 6.

The release gained momentum when Travis began experimenting with long-form improvised instrumentals for the instrument, one of which, Ancient Soul, Modern Times, has clocked up in excess of a million plays on YouTube!

“The result is a stunning and utterly unique piece of work which helps to define new possibilities for so-called “Immersive audio”, without losing focus on the pure sound and inherent musicality of the duduk improvisations which have struck such a chord with a wide and growing audience online,” say Panegyric of the upcoming release.
Aeolus is available on CD and Blu-ray, the latter of which also features Ancient Soul, Modern Times.

Pre-order Aeolus.
