ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The songs are stunning...Epic in scope...somewhat reminiscent of Sigur Ros or gybe!." - www.drawn.ca

"Little stories, subtle melodies, fragile whispered lyrics and little noises...All driven by smooth and beautiful piano sounds and a dreamy cello...are the perfect soundtrack for these winter nights..." - www.musicplpt.blogspot.com

"Awesome...The art is gorgeous, but you really need to see it to believe it." - www.comingupforair.net

RAGNI's debut was recorded in Brenden's grandparents house. The songs are underlined by faint echoes from the past (old family recordings, the creaking of the house itself and outside elements to round out the ambience). The tracks were mixed in Montreal by Joseph Donovan (Sam Roberts, The Dears) and mastered in New York City by Dave McNair (Miles Davis, Bruce Springsteen).

Accompanying the album is a fully illustrated graphic-novella created by acclaimed DC Comics artist Karl Kerschl (Superman, X-Men). The story springs from the atmospheric sounds of the recording, with images that fully compliment the themes and sounds of the CD.

Jakub Zapotoczny (keyboards, vocals) was born in Sulecin, Poland to a family influential in the local art scene. He immigrated to Canada as a young man and graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Music, Lummen School of Music, Mohawk College Applied Music (performance major). Jakub was one half of the popular Hamilton bands, Mellotone and Butterfly Plague.

Brenden Fletcher (vocals, guitar) spent much of his childhood with his Scottish immigrant grandparents who shaped his views of storytelling and music. He was raised in the Canadian countryside making up mythic stories and songs. He’s a graduate of the Royal Conservatory of Music, University of Windsor and was lead vocalist in the progressive St Catharines outfit, Bedroom Astronomers.

Ragni has toured Europe, performed live streaming shows to thousands of listeners through their website and given away exclusive digital tracks at iPod friendly shows. Their music can be heard in documentaries and short films from the National Film Board of Canada and podcast shows available through Apple's iTunes music store.

The concept album squared x 10
Y'know, I was just missing the concept album, and here I have a mighty fine concept CD. I discovered this CD package because of the comic, which is first rate online, and even better in book form. Bravo to the artist and the composer. I'm going to give it five stars because I'm a complete music snob, I write stuff like this, and even though I think the composer could have done more with less, the CD package is a beautiful thing and will be a joy forever. I hope there are more sequential art and music collaborations. I wish I had one, but this one will keep me warm for quiet a while. Great stuff, bravo bravo bravo, all around. www.gingermayerson.com

An outstanding album
Truly, only the comic alone would deserve to be sold at this price. Couple it with an album that is more than atmospheric alone and you have something outlandish.

BEAUTIFUL
When I listen to your music, I feel serene and calm. Words cannot describe how fortunate I feel to own this album. It is truly beautiful.

The best planned and orchestrated music coming out of the Niagara Region
This CD is truly amazing... Not only is the CD packed with solid recordings the illustration work that was done with this CD blew me away... This is the best CD in the niagara area and in any record store I have seen... You can tell the effort that was put into this album and I am sure this album will reach everywhere

Congrats Ragni *Brandon and jake**

Melancholy Masterpiece
This album is beautiful. The music soothes you as it tells a story. The comic that comes along with it would be worth the price alone. Either I bought a CD and got an awesome comic book for free, or I bought a comic book and got a CD full of fantastic music for free! Either way I won!
Great buy! I recommend highly.
