First album with meditational music set to be released in Auro-3D®
Brussels, Belgium, 23 March 2016 – Roger Shah’s reputation in the international electronic dance music (EDM) scene spans over 20 years, having worked with and produced for some of the world’s biggest artists such as Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Sarah McLachlan and Moya Brennan, amongst countless others.
Today we are proud to announce Roger’s newest artist album, entitled ‘Music for Meditation, Yoga & Any Other Wellbeing Moments’, set to be released on Pure Audio Blu-Ray™ and in Auro-3D®. The album is a world premiere as it will be the first album containing meditational music released in Auro-3D.
The Auro-3D mix creates an exciting three-dimensional soundscape provided by the addition of a revolutionary Height Layer that produces sound in front, above and all around the listener.
Auro-3D is an exciting move from two-dimensional surround sound formats to three-dimensional sound and is the only sound system on the market that has both 5.1 Surround and Auro 9.1 in just one standard PCM delivery file delivering high resolution audio in each channel, making easy distribution on any system in the world possible.
‘Music for Meditation, Yoga & Any Other Wellbeing Moments’ will contain a musical atmosphere of chill and ambient vibes, customized for Auro-3D, a listening format that delivers the most naturally immersive sound experience available today. At the request of his fans, Roger created a new musical journey through a series of unique songs composed for meditation and yoga, perfectly suited for relaxation and peace. The enhancement provided by the Auro 9.1 mix will allow listeners to immerse themselves in a world of tranquility, as intended by the name of the album title. The album will be a collection of musical pieces carefully produced to fit Roger Shah’s name and brand. The fusion of orchestral instruments, combined with warm synth pads and plucks, world music instruments and hybrid electronic sounds, all in Auro-3D, will surely lift audiences to their highest emotions.
Roger Shah is a 20-year music industry pioneer and a five-time awarded veteran of the DJ Magazine Top 100 poll. He is known for his unique Balearic music style as one of Europe’s most productive electronic music producers and has released countless hits on top 10 chart positions across Europe.
When Roger Shah’s productions go hand in hand with the immersive power that comes from Auro-3D®, the newest album is set to soar.
Roger Shah mentioned,” I am excited by the heightened emotional experience of listening to my music in Auro-3D. The Auro 9.1 mix truly creates an immersive feeling of sound and makes the true intention of the album come out. The meditational music I produced gets elevated perfectly from the Auro-3D format and I can’t wait for my audience to experience meditational music on such an enhanced level.’
”Having a renowned artist such as Roger Shah releasing his album in Auro-3D, is yet another accomplishment to be proud of,“ stated Wilfried Van Baelen, inventor of the Auro-3D format and CEO of Auro Technologies. ”The meditational music of his newest album and Auro-3D are the perfect match. Never before has such music been able to provide this kind of an ultimate relaxing feeling.”
The Auro-3D sound format is the next generation in audio, marking an exciting leap forward from standard Stereo and Surround sound that increases the dramatic impact of recorded musical performances, to create a natural 3D listening experience. Thanks to its backwards compatibility, Auro-3D mixes of film or music are released on standard Blu-ray™ discs, and the Auro-Matic® upmixing engine allows existing collections of music and film soundtracks to be rendered in 3D sound.
The Auro-3D format is or will soon be available in many consumer applications, with mobile, automotive, and gaming versions all bringing a new immersive and true 3D sound to the market very soon.
Chief Sound Engineer Patrick Lemmens at Galaxy Studios, Belgium, created the Auro-3D mix. Patrick was also responsible for the Auro 9.1 mix of the award-winning ‘Lichtmond 3’ album.
‘Music for Meditation, Yoga & Any Other Wellbeing Moments’ will be released on Pure Audio BluRay™ by Black Hole Recordings, in Stereo, 5.1 Surround and 9.1 Auro-3D, all in 24bit/96kHz. It will become available as of April 15 through all major retail channels including Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk and Bol.com.
The album serves as the second Auro-3D® Blu-Ray release by Black Hole Recordings, after having set a standard with the release of ‘Elements of Life’ by Tiësto in Auro’s three-dimensional format.
