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):

(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)

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 *:

(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).

:clap::clap::cheers: 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.

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

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,
