    Sounds like it will be a great session! Maybe some news about the new album? BTW Y’all might want to look into adding security to the “create account” option; I’ve seen a bunch of spam on the main page recently :( Could be the cause of the site crashing…

    Corin, I think the order you listed them on the header (above the album art) works well. Just a suggestion… I look forward to tomorrow night!

  • Clay posted an update 2 years, 5 months ago

    Just picked up my digital copy of L’hiver; some amazing new tracks! Makes Sense and Thinking of You are instant favorites and I’m happy to see Niven made it on an album! All this musical inspiration is getting me excited for next year’s album :) Thanks for the early Christmas gift!

    Is there a way to get mp3 at 320kbps ? I’m working on a french radio, and I’d love to put some of this song in my show but cannot since it’s low quality mp3. Thanks for all !

  • Profile photo of Vadim

    Thanks so much !

    Copy ordered ! All the best for ending this album. Hope to see you on stage.

    any updates on when we receive our orders? you guys are doing a great job of building up pent up demand — lol! seriously, i’m definitely looking forward to hearing this new work.

    • Profile photo of Corin

      crazy horse has great determination to sell every last copy and more….we will able to announce a delivery date soon we hope.

    Finally I ordered it, I can’t wait to hear this new album. :-)

  • Profile photo of Crazy Horse

    Thanks to all those who have pre ordered. We still need to sell a lot of more as currently we have just covered the cost of manufacturing and nothing else. Please keep spreading the word on the new album and make Corin a very happy man.

    Can’t wait to receive my order 😉

    Thanks for creating such a wonderful music.

    Can’t wait to get this in the mail. Crossing my fingers for a piece of the Come From Heaven score. Still my favorite record to this day.

  • Profile photo of Crazy Horse

    The numbers you are reading as you place your orders are not accurate or definitive, customers place orders but do not proceed to paypal so the order does not count, we will let you know when we reach our first target with this release

    • Profile photo of Carlos

      Hello,
      I just placed my order but I received a reply saying ‘Order number 118′. Is this number accurate?

      I really would like to receive the complete packaging of the first 60… Please!!

      Thank you
      Carlos

      • Profile photo of Corin

        No this is not the number sold, it’s not an accurate number. There are many orders that do not go through the whole process with paypal.

    • Profile photo of Julien

      It is normal, at the beginning, the price was masked by a big image… i discovered the price once on paypal…

      Problem fixed :)

  • Profile photo of Crazy Horse

    Well when you have three children to feed and someone is offering you a lot of money for an ad we are not in any kind of position to turn the money away, this is only one of two big adverts Alpha have been offered in their whole career, we hope they get plenty more. We have never seen Wendy so happy when she realised what she was getting.

  • Profile photo of Harold

    I’m in for the mega shark!

  • Profile photo of Juhani

    I’ll try to post this here, as nobody seememed to notice my post on alphaheaven facebook page last week:

    Sam / Corin, I ordered the new album last week, but something went wrong as I didn’t get directed to paypal and didn’t pay it at all. Despite not paying, I got a order confirmation by e-mail, which I replied to asking whether I should place the order again or just send the payment by paypal. I guess no one noticed it, as I received the cd today. I would of course like to pay for it, so please give me the paypal address for it.

    • Profile photo of Corin

      Hello, thanks for your message, The administrator is away at the moment, when they are back next week they will send you a paypal request to your email. Thanks again

  • Profile photo of Harold

    Corin, are you going to be doing this again with all the tracks you’ve recorded for the next album?

  • Profile photo of Michael

    Perfect!

  • Profile photo of Kerstin

    Low is as epic as A Little Poison…really thanks for that one.

  • Profile photo of Joshua Wear

    Anyone else having problems unzipping the wav version ?

    • Profile photo of Harold

      You’re not using a Mac running OS X 10.5.8 (Leopard), by any chance? I’m having the same issue, but with both of the downloads. Safari is reporting “Decompression failed”, and when I look at the size of the download, the ZIP archives for both the MP3 and WAV versions are both at about the same size (~32 megs).

      I’m going to jump over to a Windows machine to see if I have better luck there. I’ll let you know.

    • Profile photo of Harold

      So were you able to unzip the WAV archive?

  • Profile photo of Michael

    Great album – thank you!

  • Profile photo of Filipe

    Amazing work as always. ‘Lilitu’ is such a beautiful track, the dark ambient created in ‘The Guest’ is sublime (maybe my fav one). ‘The Last refuge’ is probably the most Alpha’like remix and I do love the building up from ‘Low’. Each track has a different touch and vibe but you can feel in all of them the great spirit of Alpha… :)

  • Profile photo of franck.j

    Just received it today (super fast delivery, waow), right on time for my birthday, what a gift!
    Another bunch of great tunes from Alpha, always a pleasure.
    Especially love the long tracks, great atmospheres.

  • Profile photo of Filipe

    One more for the record collection! 😀

  • Profile photo of Clay

    I hope y’all are shipping out the albums soon; I understand the decision to release it in CD form only, but I’m dying to hear it!

      Ok they were not numbered, I wondered why there was a problem, sorry. Yes Harold’s list is good. I think the itunes version will be a different order because I forgot it.

    I look forward to checking out the other sounds but this is great, thanks!

  • Profile photo of Harold

    This is very cool! The last time I tried it I had problems, probably because I was logging in from some old Mac that couldn’t handle the Alphatar very well.

  • Profile photo of slowturtle

    how do i purchase any of these songs as mp3’s?

    • Profile photo of Corin

      You can download some with points, there is a link on the page. Also we may release some as a Christmas download next week.

  • Profile photo of Harold

    Oh, that must’ve been a test or something. You’re session doesn’t actually begin for another 20 minutes, I think.

  • Profile photo of Harold

    And just when I’d referred some friends! Did I just catch the final 5 minutes of the session?

    I’m going to have to think about this. I can’t vote yet! Too much pressure.

  • Profile photo of Ilya

    I chose “Nyquil” by our lovely hosts here. I have thousands of albums that run the gamut of recorded musical history, and if I were asked to choose the one song in that history that I absolutely could not live without…it would be that one without a moment’s hesitation.

    • Profile photo of Aja

      I like Nyquil as well. Dim was my favorite for a while but recently A Perfect End has become my favorite. I can listen to A Perfect End countless times and always find something new.

  • Profile photo of Remko

    So here’s what I did: I posted all these songs in the group inspiration. If you can’t make up your mind, visit the group and listen to all these nice songs!

    • Profile photo of Remko

      And of course I recommend my Björk contribution

    • Profile photo of Lapin

      Wow, great job ! I would have voted Björk myself but I don’t think that Unravel would be one of my favourite… right now I’d go for Unison, Pleasure Is All Mine, 5 Years or Hyper-Ballad.

      • Profile photo of Remko

        Well, unravel is something personal and then it’s hard to make one decission. Best video ever of course is All is full of love. Could have picked that one. On my wedding we put ‘generous palmstroke’, but that’s a song nobody knows, so that would definitely not be other’s favorite…

      • Profile photo of Remko

        see also my post in the Inspiration group :)

  • Profile photo of DAVID DANINO

    Quite interesting to hear different perspectives on the same track… It just sounds new !

    hey, I’ve been enjoying this. When’s the next time?

  • Profile photo of Lapin

    Lately I made a list of my 100 favourite records of all time (seems childish but I’m kind of obsessed with lists, can’t help it…), and I found 5 Alpha albums in it. The only musician to get more is Sole with 6 albums but under 5 different names and bands so I guess it doesn’t count. :p

  • Profile photo of Lapin

    Zen is one of my favourite DJ Krush album, and Vision Of Art feat. Company Flow’s El-P and Mr. Len still is one of his best tracks ever.

  • Profile photo of Corin

    If nature (life) operates under rules for example 1+1=2 then we have been shaped by these rules from plants to humans. The question is , are we independently examining and testing the laws of nature, proving observations of nature operate by a set of rules, for if the laws of nature determine everything then our decisions could also be determined by nature, making us unable to have free will to discover what life is, like it’s hidden from us. This would mean that we are not in control of ourselves and nature. Therefore the question lies, why are we self aware. is this the need to fill in the answer with God – The garden project.

  • Profile photo of briaeos

    so, what is the statement “bonus tracks go to http://www.alphaheaven.com “on the back cover of cd refereng to? will there be some extra content!?

    btw, when will you send cd that was ordered yesterday?

  • Profile photo of Corin

    Song no name on Alpha playlist 2 rare tracks, this song should be worked on and released. It is familiar as briaeos say, but does anyone know where they have heard it before?

    • Profile photo of briaeos

      once i’ve had all “hidden songs” from stragazing era website downloaded, but then few years ago my hdd decided it is the right time to spontaneously self-destruct, so that hypothesis can’t be easily verified…

  • Profile photo of Remko

    Will the cd be available on buying with points? :)

    • Profile photo of Remko

      hmm, the replies were removed. How come? Can’t make it happen?

      • Profile photo of Corin

        Not sure, after it had to be rebuilt there have been some strange things happening.

    but we want more! 😉

    • Profile photo of Corin

      It’s coming, I know some of the tracks your gonna really love.

      Yes this tune ‘Covers Been Blown’ has quite a story , I wrote originally with 3 parts, all got separated and turned into other tunes now it has come back together, not as it was originally but close.

  • Profile photo of Vinnie

    Both Ariel and Made In Space are available thru Amazon and CDBaby, but unfortunately not in high quality (at least 320kbps). I hate variable bitrates. Google Play offers its entire music inventory in 320kbps, and so does 7Digital (for the most part). I’d love to have both Ariel and especially Made In Space in 320 or higher kbps.

    • Profile photo of admin

      We will look into why CD baby is low, that’s not good. We are planning to release a special edition of Made in Space on CD. We will keep you posted.

  • Profile photo of Harold

    Are we able to listen to your music somewhere?

  • Profile photo of Harold

    What’s this?

  • Profile photo of Audrey V.

    “Because of you” is a pure jewel

  • Profile photo of Audrey V.

    “Lilitu” is wonderful, different, love the desperate but still dignified emotion that comes from it…

    “My garden” is peaceful and evokes me a sunny day in the nature, lying on the grass, watching the clear blue sky, refreshed by a nice wind, hearing birds singing and feeling a real communion with nature and elements…

    “Niven” reminds me of the soundtrack of the movie “The Big Blue” (Eric Besson), by Eric Serra, especially the tracks Sailing to death” and “Homo delphinus”. Same ambiance, same sound.

    Loved “You”, for the warm and charming voice of Kelvin…

    Thanks for sharing all these tracks !

    You have not lost your points as nobody voted for under 200 so you should have your points back this is why the spam registrations were removed after betting had finished as nobody was going to win. There has been a lot of problems with spam registrations in the last two weeks so we have no put in more protection during registrations. We will have to see if it works.

    I will start on lost an eye lash,do you think it should have a new title? The other tracks will be up for vote again soon.

    Lost an eyelash is now well under way but I don’t know if I should let you hear it until it is finished. It is always difficult to decide if final versions should be left as a surprise or weather to let you hear it’s progress, so here is the vote, do you or do you not want to hear it in progress? New ideas will be up for vote again soon….I have lots waiting to start it will be up to you which ones.

    • Profile photo of Remko

      I like the title – it’s kind of fragile.

    • Profile photo of

      The title is somehow unusual, but great.

    • Profile photo of briaeos

      well, if the idea behind “direct it” is making some kind of priority list of what should be done first then there is no point in hearing work in progress. if the idea is to choose in which direction chosen song will, then hearing work in progress makes some sense..

  • Profile photo of Audrey V.

    “Lost an Eyelash” is wonderful, so peaceful, so melancholic, so intimate, so Alpha !! It’s definitely my favorite. Would love if you develop this track :)

    All tracks were lovely, and I would be receptive to them all…but “Lost An Eyelash” was just divine! I was writing lyrics in my head the minute I heard the first few bars. Very nice to hear future Alpha classics in their infancy. :)

    Sandies brings in a new tone, so I prefer that one.

    • Profile photo of Remko

      heard the 3 again and realy convinced that there’s something new in Sandies. Hope that you will bring it to a higher level, although the votes are against it.

    F1 and Sandles are good, I feel them like part of Lost in a Garden of Clouds, but Lost an eyelash just made me want to make music! It’s fucking beautiful, I could hear it with a beautiful female voice.

  • Profile photo of

    Lost an eyelash is quiet good. You could work it out into a song. Other tunes are more ambient. You could possibly use them as an intro, but for an another song, i suppose. I don’t see how these three pieces could work together well. They are too different to be combined as one.

  • Profile photo of briaeos

    f1 just for the reason that it sounds little bit more “experimental” than the other two which are more in the classic alpha style.

  • Profile photo of etien

    actually F1 & eyelash work fine side by side;)
    the 3 could easily end up altogether as one song…

    • Profile photo of Peter

      reckon F1 could well function as intro or lead in to lost an eyelash ..

    So happy Alpha is still alive and about to drop another LP!

    Your story and your video has reminded me of one of my favourite works in classical ukrainian literature. A psychological novel by Mykhailo Kotsiubynsky, called ‘Intermezzo’. It was published in 1908. It tells an autobiographical story about the spiritual healing of the exhausted person who takes a trip away from the city and spends some time alone surrounded by nature. It’s a very personal, deep, intellectual, philosophical piece of work. Your story is beautiful, as are these little pieces of music, you wrote. I’m excited about the final part of the project. I want to hear what came out of the noise. Sometimes a simple sound can transform into something beautiful. I exactly know how this thing works.

      Because you mentioned “I forsee a little problem. Anyone can change their bet just seconds before betting ends. That ruins the bet…. So why not close it an hour or 3 and then wait until Friday 6?” The time was move two hours later, but I guess we should not have done this. You points have been returned.

    I really like the website and the fact that it feels like a “Alpha community” where fans can share :)

    • Profile photo of Harold

      Yeah, it’s a good start. I’m having a bit of trouble navigating it — finding things, like how to rack up points — but I’m sure I’ll get used to it. New visitors may be a little perplexed, though. In order to be a great site (and one that will be “sticky” — that is, keep visitors returning — it’s got to be super-easy to navigate. Maybe it’s just me but I think it needs something…what that is I’m still trying to figure out.

    • Profile photo of Harold

      Never mind, I found the points legend. I’ll keep my mind on what I feel this site could use, and when I post my ideas maybe others will take a look and discuss.

      So far the site is good. It’ll grow and as it does just the engagement with others will self-improve the site.

    • Profile photo of Harold

      Oh, and I’ll post those suggestions under Community->Groups->New Site

  • Profile photo of Harold

    I’m confused. Where do we actually access the garden project?

  • Profile photo of

    ‘Because of you’ is such a masterfully crafted song. I always wondered could this song possibly came out from the same sessions as Stargazing album. It has some specific similarities, particularly with ‘Elvis’. Another outstanding song with Kelvin is ‘Three thousand’. I think these two precious songs really reminisce Lee Hazlewood and Burt Bucharach, songwriters who were always far ahead of their time. Just like Alpha.

    • Profile photo of Corin

      They did not all come from the same sessions as Stargazing, mostly afterwards. You cannot compare us to the greats Lee and Burt, but I am very flattered. Yes some of these songs are hardly know, thank you for your support. The song 3000 even has real strings recorded at Abbey Road but it was many years after that kelvin put vocals to it.

      • Profile photo of

        Thank you for the answer, Corin. This is very interesting to me.

  • Profile photo of Remko

    Will there be a full screen mode?

  • Profile photo of admin

    Yes these are good ideas, and your right if we can build this site into something more than just Alpha. We are working on some new features at the moment. Thanks again for your support. We have some more remixes lined up for the It’s Friday – player…watch this space.

  • Profile photo of

    I’ve always loved ‘Sometime Later’ album cover.

  • Profile photo of

    Surprisingly great new website.

  • Profile photo of etien

    by support act, i mean ‘opening band’ , of course

  • Profile photo of etien

    seems like a byproduct of the site, several features imply extended collab. Corin said he wished that it would evolve into smth special. that’s the way of public-fed forums and network, it becomes whatever we (as a whole) do out of it… like a band jamming together, basically…

    another way would be: you re in a band, you set up a gig for Alpha + you (as support act), you make sure it covers the expenses (travel, accomodations+fee). then another band take turn in another city ___ hopefully not to far, to share travel costs…

    now, the membership is still a bit small to reasonably think about it. one-off gigs would be ridiculous.
    then, would Alpha want to do that kind of thing? no idea.

    but i’m in if that’s an option. Paris & area. anyone?

    • Profile photo of admin

      one off gigs are too complicated as Alpha are in France and England and getting people together to rehearse for one got is nigh on impossible just for one night. its so difficult to arrange backline, musicians it goes on and on. if there was a tour for at least one month then it would be worth it!

  • Profile photo of etien

    thanks for sharing the sounds.
    bass 3.1 doesn’t seem to show up or load (wrong files?) as “remix alpha-christmas tune” (empty folder?)

  • Profile photo of Harold

    Awesome. This is by a band called Blueneck, right? Not only is it a great idea to showcase similar electronic bands to Alpha, but it would be great to get these other bands involved with this site in some way that really provides them incentive to do so. Bands usually want their own venue to showcase their projects but cross-pollination is typical (like in remixes like this). Marketing-saavy and successful bands understand this. I’m trying to come up with some other ways to cross-market like this.

    Someone please tell me if you agree or disagree. You’ll get two points for doing so!

  • Profile photo of etien

    at my window, there were rooftops, now i see mountains. thanks

  • Profile photo of Harold

    One feature I would love to see is for the tracks from some Alpha songs to be made available once in awhile to members for downloading and remixing. Alpha could select the song(s) or poll members asking them which track they would love to remix. Alpha could license the tracks under a Creative Commons license that requires attribution and is exclusively for non-commercial use — that is, the track(s) can be downloaded and remixed as long as the resulting remix is attributed to Alpha and not distributed for profit.

    Remixes could even be vetted by Alpha and, if approved by Alpha, included on the site for other members to listen to.

    • Profile photo of admin

      Yes this is a good idea, we do have the loops player for just this purpose with some alpha loops. Only some tracks will be available, the ones where a license is easy. Getting approval for some tracks would take months. We will let you know when some more loops are ready. The CCL is a good idea and will look into it.

  • Profile photo of Harold

    I think in the first poll you should put “Excellent” at the top followed by “Good” then “Could be improved” followed by “Bad” followed by “No comments”. At least, that’s how polls like these are normally done (from one end of the spectrum to the other).

  • Profile photo of Remko

    • Profile photo of Corin

      Hello Harold, if you go to the top bar your points are displayed in the top menu. You can view all your points from My account > points. Also if you let the mouse hover over a menu link after a couple of seconds a box will appear with the number of points you need to view. Pleased to hear it’s Logic 7, that is what I use. I look forward to hearing what you do.

    Corin is that the Pyrenees? I beleive you are a fan of Cadaques? If so, you must be a fan of Dali. We were there last Feb as part of our Barcelona/Gaudi/Dali trip. we must have taken 2500 pictures in 10 days. I loved Dali’s house and the museum. We were very fortunate to have the big Dali exhibit in nearby Philadelphia usa, we went to it 3 times. Absolutely amazing. We also made a pilgrimage to Tampa Fla to the the museum there. The Morse have 4 of his masterpieces, including my favorite, the torreador.
    Peace from Philadelphia, usa.

      yes, it is the Pyrenees and we love Cadaques! We have been going there for the past five years every summer and love it.

    I’ve had a remix in my head for for about 5 years now, ever since I heard the Daley remix of Butterfly Cought. I think that the Cocteau Twin’s Blood Bitch would make a really cool mix. Unfortunately I have no recording expertise despite having been a club DJ from 1984 to 1993. If I were still spinning, that mix would be one of my favorites, of course i’d have to do it the old fashioned way, with vinyl. I’d love to hear any feedback on this, or better yet, someone actually make it happen, ideally as a new collaboration between 3D and Liz Fraser. The world is a duller place for lack of her vocal inspirations.
