Award winning Australian composer / synthesist’s 15th international release featuring 9 Tracks over 70 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…
‘Threshold Of The Universe’ follows the release of Jim’s international award winning ‘When Eternity Touches Time’ album (awarded ‘Best Electronic Album’ at the 17th Annual Zone Music Reporter Awards in New Orleans, USA.
The album was composed, recorded & produced by Jim Ottaway between August 2007 and June 2021 and mixed & mastered by him in June/July 2021.
All tracks are live improvised studio recordings with minimal overdubs. An earlier abridged version of ‘Beyond Space And Time’ was released under the title ‘MFF2 – Scene 15’.
Equipment & software used for this production includes: RME Fireface 800, Studio One, Korg Karma, Yamaha MX49 & various VSTs.

‘Threshold Of The Universe’ is a continuation of his series of space ambient releases including: ‘Beyond The Purple Sun’, ‘Deep Space Blue’, ‘Southern Cross’, ‘Liquid Moon’, ‘Orion’, ‘Centauri’ and ‘Aurora’.
The album is made up of 9 tracks all representing aspects of a space journey to the threshold of the universe.
As the album’s liner notes indicate, Jim’s goal is to take the listener on a journey through infinite space to the threshold of the universe… to see the spectacular parallel suns… to visit an alien star… to get a glimpse of the two trillion galaxies in our universe… and to see intriguing dark matter through distorted starlight, along with many other wonders of the universe.
