    Towards Truth and Destiny

    My upcoming double-album "Like a Flame", recorded in Jørlunde church, is on track for a release this fall (2010)! So far I've uploaded two excerpts from the pieces Origin and Like a Flame.

    Now it's time for two more; "Towards Truth" and "Destiny"

    First, an excerpt of Towards Truth, which includes a sweeping buildup to full organ (to hear the complete buildup from the start you'll need to buy the CD ) - play this on big speakers with high volume!!
    Choose download format - MP3, FLAC, Apple Lossless, or uncompressed WAV (Select MP3 for smaller file size and maximum compatibility or FLAC/Apple lossless/WAV (Info) for highest sound quality):
    Click here to download a large excerpt from »Towards Truth« (MP3)
    (4:16 min., 10.3 MB, 320 kbps MP3 format)

    Or click on either of the following links to download the same excerpt in "lossless" format (full 44.1KHz/16bit CD quality):
    •• Towards Truth (WAV, 45.3 MB) •• Towards Truth (FLAC, 21.3 MB) •• Towards Truth (Apple Lossless, 20.7 MB)

    (More Lossless Audio Downloads)

    Secondly, Destiny. Actually a large piece in two movements, but here's just a short except presenting the main theme and showing some of the organ's softer voices *:

    Download an excerpt of Destiny
    (0:56 min, 320 kbps MP3)

    Both pieces are recorded in one unedited take (as are every piece, except one, on the two CDs).

    * = Info for the organists: Fugara 8' + Rørfløjte 8' on the Swell Organ, Traversfløjte 8' + Tectus 8' on Great Organ, Subbas 16' + Bordun 8' in Pedal, Couplers: Gt + Swell, Pedal + Swell (as I recollect).

    Sounds like a GREAT cd Frederik. Love the uplifting full organ sound. This would make a great movie background piece.. similar to "2001 Space Odesty" style. ""Well done our good and faithful servant" to quote an old but true phrase.
    ....To play only what is written is the domain of science. To realize what is not written is the domain of art."

    I wish you the Best for each day, now and always.

    It does sound great. I agree that it would also go well in a movie. Well done.
    Where will the CD be available online?

    Our Frederik's such a talented chap, that's for sure.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    An excellent job outstandingly and perfectly done

    Thanx for sharing, Sir Frederik...

    Respectfully yours,

    CD
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Very cool Frederik!

    Sounds spectacular through headphones too.

    Thank you! I really appreciate your kind words, and I'm happy you like what you hear! I'll upload more excerpts along the way - there are 23 tracks and more than 130 minutes of music on the album...

    I hadn't thought about it, but I can see what you mean about "Towards Truth" having certain "film-like" qualities, though I wouldn't call it film music per se, but rather - like Bill says - it could possibly function well in a movie the same way as the works used by Kubrick in Space Odyssey 2001.

    The CD will be available both in "physical form" and as online downloads on iTunes/Amazon, etc. I will post here on MIMF as soon as I have more to announce regarding availability and release date.

    Best regards,
    Frederik
