Award winning Australian composer / synthesist’s 11th international release featuring 6 Tracks over 60 Minutes of Melodic Space Ambient Electronic Music!

About this artist and his influences…
Jim Ottaway is already known at CDS Towers for his Melodic Instrumental Space Ambient series of CD-R releases: ‘Aurora’, ‘Orion’, ‘Centauri’ and ‘Liquid Moon’. Those, together with other themed releases: ‘Chill Factor’ and ‘Blitz’, plus his more recent factory pressed titles: ‘Power’ (originally a 2013 CD-R, but re-released in January 2015 on CD), 2015’s ‘Invisible Vortex’ and 2016’s ‘Southern Cross’, both of which are Digi-Pak productions, all stylishly presenting Jim's musical alter-ego as someone who injects 100% heart and soul into the music he makes and great attention to detail into how he presents it to his public.

While trying to create his own style of electronic music, Jim openly acknowledges the influence that artists such as: TANGERINE DREAM, Edgar Froese, ENIGMA, Vangelis, PINK FLOYD, Johannes Schmoelling, Christopher Franke, CODE INDIGO, Gary Wright, RADIO MASSACRE INTERNATIONAL and Aussie artists: Christopher Buckman, Tony O'Connor and Lisa Gerrard have had on his music over the years.

About this album…
‘Deep Space Blue’ follows the release of Jim’s early 2017 electronic album ‘Timeless e-Motion’ and his 2016 ambient album ‘Southern Cross’, both of which received good airplay and chart positions around the world. ‘Southern Cross’ was awarded a Silver Medal at the Global Music Awards and was also nominated for various international music awards.

All the tracks for ‘Deep Space Blue’ were composed, performed, produced, mixed and mastered by Jim Ottaway between May 2014 and June 2017.
Equipment & software used for this production includes RME Fireface 800, Studio One, Korg Karma, acoustic guitar, & various VSTs including Omnisphere, SynthMaster, Spire, Alchemy, Ethera, Massive, Goliath, Evolve Mutations, Morphology, Scoring Guitars, Symphonic Choirs & Reaktor.

‘Deep Space Blue’ covers familiar territory to Jim’s other ambient releases, in particular ‘Southern Cross’, ‘Orion’, ‘Aurora’, ‘Centauri’ and ‘Liquid Moon’. The album is made of six tracks all representing aspects of deep space… stars, astral voices, planets, galaxies. Once again Jim takes you on a journey through space and time.
There are three tracks spanning over 10 minutes playing time each and three tracks run in at over 5 minutes.
Each track has a different feel and texture however they all blend together beautifully to take you on a journey to deep outer space.
Inspirations include: ‘Panspermia’ ... the hypothesis that life exists throughout the universe, distributed by meteoroids, asteroids, comets, planetoids, and also by spacecraft in the form of unintended contamination by microorganisms. ‘Trappist-1’ (2MASS J23062928-05022851) … an ultra-cool dwarf star that is slightly larger but much more massive than the planet Jupiter, located 39.5 light-years from the Sun in the Constellation Aquarius.
