Swedish based electronic music composer Magnus Birgersson aka Solar Fields built a unique sonic universe with a constant shifting from high tech ambient flow into broken beats, powerful sequences and fragmented loops.
As a natural born multi-instrumentalist, Magnus plays the Veena, sitar, drums and guitar and is also deeply connected to any sound processing machine. Constantly exploring new musical horizons in his famous high-tech station called Studio Jupiter, Solar Fields likes to develop an evolving dream (“unfinished” as he likes to mention) and offers an intense listening experience.
The productive discography of Magnus Birgersson should be considered like a following of drifting masterpieces : 6 solo albums, two collaboration album with French composer Aes Dana under the name H.U.V.A. Network and more than 50 compilations features for various labels. Often classified as ambient downtempo. Solar Fields music in fact goes further than these boundaries propulsed by his talent for sculpting hypnotic harmonics and layering sounds.In 2007 he began composing a stunning in-game score for Mirror's Edge, Electronic Arts (EA) and DICE, a new first-person action adventure game released worldwide on 14th November 2008. From the start praised to be "Poetry in motion" and one of the most exciting and innovative game, Mirror's Edge also promises to be a sonic treat for all PC, PLAYSTATION®3 and Xbox360 addicts.

CELL[France/Ultimae Records]LIVE []
1984 saw Alex Scheffer entering the world of machines. Aged 10 he received his first machine from his mother and father, respectively pianist and drummer, a Juno 106 Roland. At that time, student at the Conservatoire, he started looking at LFOs and filters. His favourite instruments remain keyboards and especially the piano, an instrument which he will get back to at 13 when entering the Jazz section at the Conservatoire of Chambéry (73).
His growing interest for machines and electronic music enticed him to listen to artists such as Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Pink Floyd, John Cage, Peter Gabriel.

Convinced that a fusion of styles is fundamental, Alex decided at 16 to look into Pop-Electro fusion. He took part in several bands as keyboard player and arranger, his main function being to mingle and mix electronic sounds into Pop-Rock atmospheres.
After his Acoustic Engineer studies, Alex definitely made a turn towards electronic music. While collaborating with different directors he got to carry out all types of orders. Original soundtracks for advertising, short films, catwalk and even contemporary dance for which he wrote more than an hour of music.

CYGNA[Malta/Metacept/IT Records]LIVE []
Cygna is a field of humble atmospheres in a warm lit sound journey created in the midst of the Mediterranean Sea by the gentle prodigy Mario Sammut.

Since 1998, the mentioned artist has been composing subtle operas through various sound sources that he constantly and passionately interacts with. Film directors, ambient music gurus, and a world of other artists continue to be amazed by the graceful force of his organic sound works, compositions, and visionary arts collaborations.

The combination of analogue warmth, rhythmic beats, modified ambience sounds, and classical instruments is the wonder found in Cygna’s works: elegant and ardent, gentle as a butterfly’s wing yet deep and grounded like the eldest carob tree. In many ways, Cygna’s creations transport the listener through a warm passage of humbleness where the heartbeat sounds evoke Cygna’s unique colours in the world of symphonic ambient.

The fervent trajectories which are created by the upcoming artist dive deep into the listeners’ stream of thought, and accompany each space by evoking a dreamy background right at the centre of their heart. Similar to nature’s secret, Cygna responds to and yields an array of inner sounds within all of his listeners, many of whom are astounded every time they embark on his musical journeys, those natural works of his humble soul.

At the start of this third millennium, Cygna’s creations possess the perfect sense of belonging as they invite the listener to stop and feel the inner space, the outer environment, be it human and native, light and deep. Cygna may be truly identified as one amazing sky of surprises that is heading towards genuine success with docile spirit and prestigious works.
