Brussels, Belgium (August 18, 2015)—Ultra-high-fidelity record label Sono Luminus and Auro Technologies have announced three new Pure Audio Blu-ray album releases featuring music recorded in Auro-3D alongside stereo and 5.1 mixes.
Touch follows Peter Gregson’s previous album, Lights in the Sky. Gregson, a cellist and composer whom The New Yorker describes as “working on the forefront of the new music scene,” recently scored his first feature film, A Little Chaos, which stars Kate Winslet and Matthias Schoenaerts.
Also coming soon in Auro-3D is In the Light of Air: ICE Performs Anna Thorvaldsdottír, a tetralogy of works for viola, cello, harp, piano, percussion and electronics. In the Light of Air was written by Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottír for the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), which was described by the New York Times as “one of the most accomplished and adventurous groups in new music.”
Lastly, Ensemble Galilei’s From Whence We Came will also get an immersive Auro-3D release. Founded in 1990, Ensemble Galilei is a group of players from both classical and Celtic backgrounds that has performed and toured globally for almost 25 years.
Wilfried Van Baelen, inventor of the Auro-3D format and CEO of Auro Technologies, stated, “It is great to announce three more albums released with an immersive Auro-3D mix on Pure Audio Blu-ray. These remarkable albums released by Sono Luminus, are a fantastic addition to the already existing slate of music titles in Auro-3D.”
Both Touch by Peter Gregson and In the Light of Air: ICE Performs Anna Thorvaldsdottír will be released on August 28. Ensemble Galilei’s From Whence We Came will become available as of September 25. The releases will be available via Naxos through all major physical retailers worldwide.
