ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Fluidities is not your usual double CD, but rather an open ended project designed to generate many unique musical collaborations. The tracks on these two discs were designed so that any track on one CD could be combined with any track from the other CD to create a hybrid piece. In fact any two tracks on Fluidities can be played together to create new composite tracks that are, in effect, virtual collaborations between artists who may have never recorded together.

For listeners with access to only one CD player Fluidities is still a complete listening experience; each piece functions well as a self contained composition and the two discs contain more than two hours of music. For those with two CD players 726 minutes (over twelve hours) of unique music can be created from the 121 possible combinations of tracks, and while each listener will undoubtedly find some combinations more pleasing than others, the possibilities are enormous!

Fluidities features eleven tracks by Jonathan Hughes (including collaborations with M. Bentley, Hussalonia, Naryan Padmanabha, and David Mussen) as well as eleven tracks by some of the most prominent names in the electronic music scene, including Tetsu Inoue, Ian Boddy, High Skies (Mat Jarvis), Saul Stokes, Susanne Brokesch, ATOI/Seofon, dreamSTATE, Interstitial, Jussi & Jaana Väisänen, Dean Santomieri, and Michael Bentley/eM.

Jonathan Hughes has been creating electronic music since getting his first synthesizer as a teenager in the 1980s. Hughes has released a handful of CDs under the pseudonym Subspace, including the inventive two disc set Fluid: environmental sound modules one through ten and the wonderful Low Frequency Oscillator. Hughes collaborated with Mollusk (a pseudonym of Foundry founder M. Bentley) on four tracks (one of which is available on Mollusk's 2001 Foundry release Accretions, and another of which appears on the Lost + Found compilation), and with Trillium Jonathan Hughes made his first solo appearance for The Foundry. The pieces on Trillium, all experiments with the 3/4 time signature, bring together different sound sources and styles into a unique and compelling collection of dreaming ambience.In 2004 Jonathan released Fluidities through The Foundry. A furher development of the ideas first presented in Fluid: environmental sound modules one through ten that includes work by many of the top talents working in ambient music.

Hughes has also played Bass (his main instrument) with numerous bands in Buffalo, NY, including the world-music group Lotusflower. He has appeared on over 20 CDs, and has played keyboards and guitar, as well as provided engineering, mastering, and graphic design for numerous artists' CDs

CD Baby


Pretty much all of us have a need for at least a few good "chill out" albums in our collection. For those days where life drains the blood out of our faces, sucks our passion dry and gives us a good kicking, being able to put in a sympathetic disc- one that lulls and comforts and takes us drifting away into watery, spacious worlds of 'no worry' and 'everything is as it should be'- is a necessity for maintaining sanity. This disc, compiling of some of the best ambient artists in the genre today, fills this need, and is perfectly titled as "Fluidities." Even for a day that is going well, the affect this album has from track one to twenty-two is monumental. An ambient electronic lover's dream is right here.


VERY GOOD STUFF!!!
this cd reminded me of the INSTINCT ARTIST SERIES. really good ambient!!!!!
