A “Fact of Being” was lucky happy to invite you to Iasos dimension and presents 3 epic ambient/new-age releases from a remarkable artist.
Iasos is a Music Creator, specializing in celestial, heavenly, inter-dimensional music. He is also one of the original founders of “New Age” music has named “the Duke Ellington of New Age and the “Creator of New Age” by the New York Times. His albums often in lists like “the list of 50 Best Ambient Albums of All Time.” by Pitchfork, “The 20 best new age albums“ by Facmag, to name just a few.
Since 1968 Iasos has remained focused and dedicated to his original intention – composing and recording his music, giving seminars, and doing multi-media concerts around the world. His music has been used by NASA, LAZARIS, ENCYCLOPEDIA BRITANNICA, LASERIUM, and HEWLETT PACKARD, as well as by numerous hospitals, health clinics, therapists, mental health clinics, and surgeons throughout the world.
Despite this, we found that some of Iasos’s masterpieces are criminally rare and hard to get on physical formats. In 2019 during discussions with Iasos, we have chosen 3 albums for the first part of the reissues of Iasos’s music on the Fact of Being on vinyl and audio CD.
May this music be an OASIS for your Soul.
In 1975 Iasos, published his first work “Inter-Dimensional Music” which during the years became an absolute classic of a new age and ambient music. This is probably a first “new age” album ever released. In addition, a year after in 1976 Steven Halpern, with his well-known masterpiece “Spectrum-Suite” cemented the existence of style.
Being unique, the music lays at the crossroads of ambient, new age, psychedelic, prog, and space music. Recommended for fans of Peter Davison, Popol Vuh, Brian Eno, Robert Fripp, Steven Halpern, and Michael Stearns’ early works.
Now, after 45 years since first publishing the album available again on limited CD and VINYL in original artwork.
“It is NOT the typical sounds of the average new age music found throughout the ’80s, it is a trippy, exotic psych sound having roots in ’60s West Coast experimental music. A cornerstone of new age music by real new agers. “l find lasos’ inter-dimensional music needing new words to describe it. I feel as though I were entering a new world — a new and very profoundly beautiful world. –Buckminster Fuller
“What’s most remarkable about Inter-Dimensional Music is how immaculately conceived it appears, less a stepping stone than a lodestone magnetizing the entirety of future new age sonic aesthetics. Even its creator, eccentric Greek bohemian Iasos, seemed caught off guard by it, admitting surprise when in 1967 he began hearing a new, nebulous form of music in his head, which he referred to as “paradise music”. Less than a decade later — on May 17, 1975 to be exact — he manifested this vision into a 45-minute suite of smeared synthetic textures, strings, piano, percussion, flute, and field recordings, dusted in heavenly FX and backwards tape. It’s an astoundingly ahistorical invention, crystalizing the essence of a style no one else had even imagined, much less attempted.
The only remotely comparable form it shares a lineage with is some sort of outsider spiritual exotica but little in that world feels this hazy, immaterial, and limitless. The sides are diffuse and disorienting, evaporating into hypnagogic wisps of perfumed breeze or quiet creeks of frogs. Even so, Iasos distinctly intended Inter-Dimensional Music for focused enjoyment rather than background ambience because he believed his music could connect listeners to “heavenly realms of existence” — and heaven must be heard to be entered.” – Factmag (the list of 50 Best Ambient Albums of All Time.)
New York Times:
“Inter-Dimensional Music” – Iasos’ 1975 debut album – he thought that was one of the most important records of the 20th century, that that piece had you could listen to that a hundred times and you still wouldn’t really be able to grasp how complex it was. And that there’s stuff going on there – harmonically and that, that’s so advanced.”
