LOS ANGELES - Saturday, June 3 is likely to be a "Red Letter" day for Southern Californians and others who are fans of contemporary piano music. That will be the day that Fiona Joy, unveils her new solo piano album, "Into the Mist." The official launch will be at the three-day Los Angeles Audio Show at the Sheraton Gateway at LAX. And Fiona herself will be debuting the album at a "Listening Fest" from 3 to 5 PM on June 3, at the Sony Sponsored Hi-Res Magic Bus, located near the hotel's main entrance.
"We are thrilled to be the setting for this important debut," said Marine Presson, Show Director for LAAS. "It is one more noteworthy expression of our theme 'Hear to Make Music.' Fiona, along with BBB Featuring Bernie Dresel and other events, performers and exhibitors set this show apart in its dedication to music," she added.
"Into the Mist" is the second album for the acclaimed Australian musician. The first, "Signature Solo," was well received and won a number of recording awards. Both are on the Blue Coast Records, which is also an exhibitor at the Show.
This worldwide release will include SACD, CD, and high-resolution audio download formats as well as Internet radio. The neo-classical program, a #1 album at Blue Coast Music for high-resolution audio sales, was recorded in and released as DSD256. It may be downloaded in additional formats as 44.1kHz (WAV), 96kHz (FLAC) 2.8 MHz (DSF), 5. 6MHz (DSF) and 11.2MHz (DSF) files.
Cookie Marenco, founder of Blue Coast Records, recorded, mixed and mastered the album using her proprietary recording technique called Extended Sound Environment (E.S.E.) that includes recording the musicians in the studio without headphones or overdubs onto DSD or analog tape. Into the Mist was recorded in a single take using the E.S.E technique.
Blue Coast will have a model studio set up at the Show and after the official launch of the album, held in conjunction with Sony and the Magic Bus, Ms. Joy and Ms. Marenco will host a tour of the studio. While the Fiona Joy album debut is set for the first day of the LA Audio Show, other Blue Coast artists will appear during the course of the Show's three-day run.
