Rock artist Dan Timofte releases debut album ‘Dissenting Time’

The rock guitarist and songwriter known as Dan Timofte has released his debut official album, “Dissenting Time.” The record contains 15 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of one hour. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Soaring, belting, and screaming at the top of its voice, “Dissenting Time” stands for all the world as proof that Dan Timofte can rock with the very best of them.

Dan Timofte cites as main artistic influences Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Gary Moore, Yngwie Malmsteen, Carlos Santana, and Eddie Van Halen. Born in 1969, a holy year to rock fans, Timofte takes the core elements similar to each of these titanic players and rolls them into an amalgam all his own. “Dissenting Time” is an instrumental rock record that can hold its head up with the very best and most popular rock records of all time.

Asked to describe the general themes and messages of his “Dissenting Time,” a capacious record by all accounts, Timofte writes: “Even if we have different opinions from each other, through dialogue we can reach a pleasant atmosphere for everyone.”

Dan Timofte bought his first guitar at the age of 12. Not long after, he was crafting original songs, a skill he continues to hone to this day. His first live appearance onstage was at 17 years old. Decades of finely tuning his skills have shaped Dan Timofte into one of the most talented and inventive guitarists in independent rock anywhere.

Since then,” writes Dan Timofte, “I have continued to compose songs for the guitar, along with other activities like painting, studying mathematics or astrology.”

Dissenting Time” by Dan Timofte is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, fans of instrumental rock. Very early.

Stark Sound Lab releases new EP ‘New Day’

The electronica music project known as Stark Sound Lab (SSL) has released its latest EP album, “New Day.” The record contains five original tracks for a total listening time of about 15 minutes. It has been proudly published on the Stark Records independent music label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Postmodern, imaginative and pulsing with sonic color, “New Day” from Stark Sound Lab is a strikingly inventive release to round out Q4 2016.

Stark Sound Lab, which began recording its brand of far-out sound exploration in San Francisco in 1968, cites as main artistic influences the Residents, Bob Moog, Walter (Wendy) Carlos, Vangelis, Dick Hyman, and Hans Zimmer. This illustrious roster gives an idea of the high-caliber musical taste of Stark Sound Lab, but the general style and groove of SSL remains unique, even by the standards of the unbounded experimental-electronic genre.

Much of Stark Sound’s singular tone comes from the specific selection of instruments involved.

Of this Stark Sound Lab writes, “With each new day comes new challenges. ‘New Day’ is a collection of experimental recordings inspired by these challenges. [It was] recorded using a variety of Moog synthesizers from Minimoog Voyager and Model D to Modular.”

Stark Sound Lab has been described as “creating New Age, minimalist and experimental sound designs that invoke impressionistic and expressionistic experiences. Each soundscape is crafted so what you hear becomes illusory, with some sounds appearing to be inches from you, several feet away or far in the distance, while others emanate from directions that are virtually inexplicable.”

The true effect of SSL is in the experience of listening to “New Day” firsthand. Luckily, the “New Day” EP from Stark Sound Lab is already available from its official website (link provided below) or from over 700 quality digital music stores online worldwide beginning 10 December 2016. Get in early, electronica and Moog fans.
