Award winning Australian composer / synthesist’s 13th international release featuring 7 Tracks over 57 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…
‘Beyond The Purple Sun’ follows the release of Jim’s electronic albums: ‘Yesterday Passing’ and ‘Timeless e-Motion’ and his international award winning ambient album ‘Deep Space Blue’.
All tracks were composed, performed, produced, mastered and complied by Jim Ottaway from tracks recorded as early as October 2010 and completed in February 2019.
Jim notes in the album liner notes that “All tracks are live improvised studio recordings with minimal overdubs”.
Equipment & software used for this production includes: RME Fireface 800, Studio One, Cubase, Korg Karma, Yahama Motif-Rack ES, Yamaha MX49 & various VSTS.

‘Beyond the Purple Sun’ is a continuation of his series of space ambient releases that include ‘Deep Space Blue’, ‘Southern Cross’, ‘Orion’, ‘Aurora’, ‘Centauri’ and ‘Liquid Moon’.
The album is made up of seven tracks all representing aspects of a space journey beyond the purple sun.
Once again Jim takes you on a journey to the far reaches of the universe, where you will learn the secrets of the hidden stars, pass through majestic celestial rainbows and view some beautiful lavender moons.
You will also feel the raw energy of space lightning and witness the birth of a quasar.
