New album and artist on MPR "Precious Memory" by Alan Hanslik
In Alan's own words - I am an instrumental composer specializing in all forms of electronic music. I mainly compose my music on grand piano and various synthesizers. I also work with outbound keyboards, samplers and utilize a DAW with sampled packages that provide me with an almost unlimited library of tones and textures including full orchestra, incidental music and sound effects along with full rhythm and drum tracks.
My musical background is in piano, drums and guitar and I played drums professionally for many years. I tend to use jazz theory as a base though much of my music is electronic with mood and theme as the primary component.

Landry Riba (Principality of Andorra, 1975) is an Andorran wildlife veterinarian and bass player. After several years involved in jazz, pop-rock or funk bands, he decided, in early 2013 to start a very personal project mixing mountain’s field recordings, classical strings, bass lines and some electronica… The result is a second self-released album called “Tales from behind the mirror” produced and mixed at Overhear Studio in Berlin (Germany) by Federico Albanese and mastered at Störung Studio in Badalona (Spain) by Alex Gámez.
Some will say it’s “soft instrumental music”, others will call it “neo classical” or “ambient music”… But it’s only music and it’s only to make people have a pause in their hurried lives! The main ingredients of the receipt are:
Some field recordings performed in the woods, near a river or during a snowy day in the Pyrenean Mountains…
A bass guitar base, giving the harmonic line of the pieces, playing chords or arpeggios.
A cello, going on with the melodies, with the help of some piano notes
Some electronic samplers and synths, providing a particular background and blending all the other ingredients together…
