NEW AGE: Ambient, CLASSICAL: Contemporary
Simon Webb, known to his friends as Si, is a new age composer: A 21st century musician producing post-classical music that reaches from the serene to the epic. Somewhere between Enya and Vangelis, his music is the soundscape for a movie in your head.
He is well known on the UK music scene for his beautifully crafted television, film and theatre music, and over the past ten years has regularly written for ITV, BBC, Channel 4, and The National Theatre.
In 2006 he released a solo album, THE BRAIN, on his own wwWebmusic label, and. encouraged by super-positive feedback on MySpace, iTunes and CD Baby, Si has spent the last eighteen months producing the follow-up album, A LEAP INTO THE LIGHT.
A LEAP INTO THE LIGHT combines Si''s talents with those of long time musical associates, AFROCELT Martin Russell, and legendary WHITESNAKE guitarist, Bernie Marsden. They went in search of (and found they say) the ''Holy Grail'' of guitar sounds. You have to listen to the album to hear these extraordinary sounds and soundscapes.
Planned for release in September in the UK and Europe, December in Australia and Japan, and February 2008 in the USA and Canada, A LEAP INTO THE LIGHT consists of ten instrumental pieces:
ON A FRACTAL WAVE
THAMES BLUES (available on 27th July in a special single version)
KYRIE IN C
MUSIC OF THE SPHERES
A LEAP INTO THE LIGHT
FEAST OF DELIGHTS
ON SILVER HILL
A VISION OF BEAUTY
Simon Webb''s music appeals to music fans of many persuasions."I''m composing for the ambient generation, making connections between the classical and popular music worlds".
