ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“A glorious sense of jubilation dominates these compositions…the performance exactingly crisp and thoroughly rewarding. Hennegan has a remarkable ability to craft tuneage that combines contemporary EM and techno music which is guaranteed to strongly satisfy patrons of the dancefloor as well as the lounge chair set. Exuberantly recommended.” (Matt Howarth, SonicCuriousity.com)

“Ideal to let imagination soar through unearthly landscapes, ethereal sounds, magnificent architectures, dreamy melodies and gliding rhythms take you step by step into an unexplored terrain. In a few words, these compositions are a magnificent sample of electronic music of a high degree.” (Edgar Kogler, AmazingSounds.com)

An artist and a spiritualist, Hennegan contemplates the state of humanity through his music. “Many of us have lost our connection with ourselves, the planet, the universe and those around us. Through dance, we connect to our spirit self and to the earth. Through song, we connect to each other, becoming instruments in tune and in harmony reaching a new and higher level of consciousness. My intention and purpose is to create and bring forth music—for dance, for harmony and for spiritual connection.”

“Vic Hennegan absorbs beauty of this surroundings and translates that to a fine musical expression.” (Little Universe) Hennegan’s work as a live performer makes him a rare commodity in the electronic world. With computers, samplers, vocals and synthesizers, Hennegan’s instinctive hand creates techno-trance and ambient music in a wildly fun, uplifting spiritual experience that will take your soul on a journey to the center of ecstasy.

“Aqua Vista” is Vic Hennegan's fourth and latest release. The album is an exploration of water—its fluid movement, its liquid touch, its undeniable power and its essential healing and invigorating qualities. This release follows his internationally acclaimed ambient album, “Desert God” (2005, Echoes Top 25 List, released on Space for Music Records/Alien Tribes Music).

In addition, his 2004 release, “Pure Creative Spirit,” has received enormous praise worldwide. It is “a masterpiece of techno-trance and catchy melodies.” (AmazingSounds.com) Moreover, his “Solace Dance” (2008) album transcends the rich spiritual vibration that always resonates in his music.

Hennegan’s music emanates a unique warmth which moves the listener to a state of euphoria. Through complex and insistent rhythms and vocals, Hennegan accomplishes “a lush dynamic that relentlessly strives to entertain.” (Matt Howarth, SonicCuriousity.com) Hennegan’s music is complimented by several guest vocalists: Juliet Annerino, well know for her sultry torchlight sound, Surface Ten’s synthesist extraordinaire, Dean De Benedictis, and Becca Fuchs whose incredible vocal range spans from operatic to soulful and sexy.

Hennegan is also a member artist of the Fateless Flow Collective, a unique gathering of ambient musicians that produce a collective compilation of their works every year. Their latest album, “undergrounded,” features Hennegan’s piece, “Linger” featuring Fuchs on vocals. The previous album “Shadowmath,” features Hennegan’s piece, “In a broken heart,” which has been aired globally on radio programs including the syndicated shows “Hearts of Space” and “Echoes.”

“Echoes” features Hennegan’s piece “Soundscape for Echoes” on the release “Refractions: The Echoes Living Room Concerts, Volume 12,” a compilation of internationally renowned electronic musicians such as Andreas Vollenweider and Michael Brook. The Echoes Living Room Concerts are recorded in the homes of EM artists. “Echoes” host, John Diliberto, personally invited Hennegan to participate in this compilation and an accompanying live interview. “Echoes” recently conducted another exclusive interview on NPR with Hennegan to discuss his musical influences and career achievements.

Hennegan is a practicing Buddhist.. This faith aims to manifest enlightenment in the lives of its practitioners, which will tap their creative potential as individuals and, in so doing, create thriving and peaceful communities. Through his faith and his music, Hennegan invokes the timeless tradition of music’s healing powers. He believes that, “We are the creators of our own universe. I seek to help people understand this very fact through my music.”
