ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This classic album features vintage synthesizers, sequencers, Lyricon, and flutes. When it was recorded in 1980, these synths were “state of the art” technology. It was Emerald Web’s second of a total of fourteen albums, and was one of the early albums to be included in the “Space Music” genre. The original reel-to-reel master tapes were meticulously restored and archived for this album.

Emerald Web created a melodic brew of Fantasy, Space and New Age music that was renowned for its rarefied blend of synthesizers and acoustic instruments. The husband and wife duo, Bob Stohl and Kat Epple were pioneers in Electronic Music, New Age Music, healing music, and music technology. From 1977-1990, they recorded on various record labels, and composed film scores for famed astronomer, Carl Sagan, Apple Computers, and PBS, among others.
Based in the San Francisco Bay area, their concerts in planetariums, observatories, museums, and other unusual venues, were performed on an array of now-vintage synthesizers, Lyricon Electronic Wind Instruments, flutes, and other acoustic instruments.

Bob and Kat were consultants for, and were sponsored by, companies and individuals that were creating the latest music technology. Emerald Web was one of the few “Space Music” bands which performed live in concert using synthesizers and sequencers, most of which at that time, had volatile memory, and no pre-set sound banks

When originally released, one music reviewer described this album as:

“A cosmic tapestry of sound, woven with threads of shimmering synthesizer timbres and luminous flute melodies.”
