harlequins Enigma Owner Åge Riisnes Release Best Of Åge Album

Bookmark and Share
Email: harlequins.enigma@yahoo.com
Website: http://www.harlenia.com
harlequins enigma decided it was time to release his first best of
solo performance album in february 2014. the album are both from his
old period from 2008/2009 & also 2013 his comeback year, plus
a few releases from january 2014. åge riisnes was introduced to
music in 1991 via protracker on the amiga platform. he had like all
others a hard time starting from scratch producing music. his goals
in the 90`s was to become boom jinx, atjazz & mantronix` equal in
skills but ended his career in 1998 with a footnote claiming to have
reached an above intermediate state in music. his comeback in 2006
through 2007 was also tracker based, untill 2008 where he started his
16 bit career in the 16bit professional league. later in his career
he refers to an incident that happened at haukeland sykehus in bergen,
norway (a psychiatric hospital) in 2000 or 2001. here a senior doctor
called him a medium & he was was quite stunned to hear such a message.
in music åge riisnes has made mental/spiritual contact with
professional musicians such as vangelis, tangerine dream, jean michel
jarre, klaus schulze, jan garbarek, kate bush, dave weckl, kitaro &
many others. in 2009 harlequins enigma produced 400 tracks, both 8 bit
& 16 bit, & many of them made it to finished masters. "best of åge"
though is only solo material, & the music included is a hot topic how
a brainchild have coped in his struggles to reach a professional level
as a composer, & also how the material will be received by the media &
critics for apprentice åge riisnes. åge sees himself as an apprentice
compared to vangelis, jan garbarek, jarre, schulze, tangerine dream,
kate bush, garbarek, kitaro & dave weckl, but admits that some of the
pieces have evergreen potential & should not be missed by fans of
electronica, dance & new age music, & fans of jarre, vangelis, schulze,
tangerine dream, kate bush, kitaro, jan garbarek, dave weckl & others.
despite lots of headaches & trouble with hackers, he has succeeded &
release this solo album digitally with a glad heart. from a coop angle
åge recalls the track lite side of the moog which lured klaus schulze
to him where later a coop of 15+ tracks were made by him, klaus & others
totally. vangelis was the first person to appear mentally in a coop that
got complete with harlequins enigma in mid 2008, when the band was very
young & saw the making of the track 3 footsteps. kitaro was first man
aboard with help for a struggling åge who made a track called brown eyes,
where kitaro shared his expertise. åge also played a series of solo sax
sessions with jan garbarek & many drum sessions with dave weckl.
sara jensen, katie leung, elin berge & other members of åge`s family
were somewhere around the corner during the making of the material.
åge has in real life little or no contact with the busy composers that
has been in sessions with him during the harlequins enigma period, that
came to life in may 2008, when the band was founded. åge has a milestone
or two for the record. one is being recommended with his 8 bit track
90`s waves featuring jean michel jarre, sara jensen & elin berge on
junodownload.com under leftfield in april 2012. the other is the
jean michel jarre track "bells" from metamorphosis, that åge partially
made in 1991 as a protracker module. the track was used by jean michel
jarre in 1998 under a time of worldwide engagement when åge was
hospitalized in a survailance case, which led to the resignment of prime
minister jens stoltenberg in norway. åge`s life has been spent in his
municipality fjell since 1995 where he still lives. åge feels though
as he has been living in taboo city while he was there, & wishes for
the media to take interest in what is going on. åge is a medium, an
agnostic, & left the state church in 2010, & believes strongly in god,
& that certain religions can be horribly fanatic like christianity. åge
is a member of dyrebeskyttelsen norway & amnesty international & has
wished for piece for a long time during his career in music & poetry. he
has made a joke about it seeing his mind as the globe. where hurricanes
runs wild, but earthly as he is he says he survives & like the breeze,
the quiet life & the more feminine values as his life`s path.

åge urges journalists & music/media/radio personell to take contact for
reviews and/or interviews around harlequins enigma`s latest solo album
that is a remarkable piece of work, all made for the people of our
world, with tracks that makes a difference.

the tracks on "best of åge" were mastered in various mastering studios
like: alchemy mastering, trackwriterz,. fiverr.com, rak mastering,
waveline audio mastering & subdub mastering.

harlequins enigma reports the album to be released physically via
distributor cdbaby, & shall have a release date of spring/summer.
a new video is out from the album in the form of parallel blossom
released 2 days ago.
