Joseph Freije releases new LP record ‘If Light Had Emotions’

The composer of fusion music known as Joseph P. Freije has released his sixth LP album for 2016, “If Light Had Emotions.” The record contains 12 original Freije electronica tracks for an approximate total listening time of 50 minutes. It has been published by Phrygian Music, as have all the Joseph Freije albums available today. At once a mixture of postmodern jazz and experimental electronica music, “If Light Had Emotions” is more than just another reason to become acquainted with the work of Joseph P. Freije – it’s an example of what the indie music movement can do for music lovers everywhere right now.

Joseph P. Freije has become known in music circles for composing in an array of popular genres. To date, he has written, performed and produced records in the alternative rock, electronic dance, and postmodern jazz arenas, with other categories thrown in for good measure. As a result, Freije’s music is more fusion than anything else, with “If Light Had Emotions” being a collection of contemporary electronic jazz fusion songs.

“This album has four dance tunes,” writes Freije, “two chillers, three electronica, two psychedelic, two groovy trance dance, one piece I call jazz, and one for-sure experimental. There is one piece that fits four of the categories listed. I like it all.”

Even so, there’s one thing he doesn’t like about the album.

“The album is too short. Twelve songs total.”

“If Light Had Emotions” is one of his most accessible records, having warm tones and mellow grooves, as well as the searching, exploring creativity his fans have come to expect from him. Many of the tracks on “If Light…” would work well in a nightclub playlist, while others sound fitting for film and video game soundtracks, and still others reflect the experimental side of Freije which most interest audiophiles and fans of music theory. In short, there’s something for nearly everyone.

Asked to describe the message of his new album, Joseph Freije writes, “Music makes the world go ’round. All the new sounds are tied to the old sounds and the yet-to-be-heard sounds. Our highest high and our deepest low are only boundaries between frequencies in our audible range. Sometimes the weave of the vibrations creates a haze that blurs the message in the sound.”

To feel the vibrations of strings plucked thousands of years ago and hear the echoes of songs which won’t be sung for millennia to come, enter the head space of Joseph P. Freije and enjoy the cosmic ride.

“If Light Had Emotions” by Joseph P. Freije is available online worldwide at over 700 music stores now. Don’t miss the rest of Phrygian Music’s catalog, also available anywhere great music is digitally sold.

Joseph Freije releases fourth LP album for 2016 ‘Hiding in the Light’

The eclectic composer of music known internationally as Joseph P. Freije has released his fourth full-length record for 2016, “Hiding in the Light.” The album contains 13 original Freije tracks for a listening time approaching a full hour. Like all music by Joseph P. Freije, it has been proudly published on the Phrygian Music independent record label without the support or direction of the corporate music industry. Fantastic and fugue-like, clever without pretension and kaleidoscopic with just a touch of psychedelia, “Hiding in the Light” is one of the most accessible experimental records from Joseph P. Freije yet.

2016 has been a remarkable year for Joseph P. Freije, whose music expertise delves into classic rock, jazz, classical, experimental, electronica and blues music, just to name a few. While this new offering, “Hiding in the Light,” is a singular blend of electronica, postmodern jazz and experimental music, he has released no fewer than three other full-length records this year in various genres, with yet another rumored to be on the way. These previous LPs include “Elements of Evidence” (alt-rock), “Electric Phlower” (dance/electronica), and “Jazz Beyond the Chaos” (postmodern jazz/electronic jazz).

Joseph P. Freije has at different times named as main artistic influences Pink Floyd, the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Satriani, Jeff Beck, Peter Kater, Nicholas Gunn, Carlos Santana, Jesse Cook, Spyro Gyra, the Moody Blues, Jefferson Starship, Thierry David, and the great classical composers. While this paints an image of an open-minded music fan with top-shelf tastes leaning toward the best of the classic-rock legends, the list does not at all elucidate the experience of hearing a record published by Phrygian Music.

Much of this stems from the general head space, paradigm and philosophies of Joseph Freije and Co. Some of his albums are steeped in thought, symbol, and implication, while others are mostly experiential – art for art’s sake. “Hiding in the Light” seems mostly of the latter persuasion.

Asked to speak on the themes of his new record, Freije says, “Life is meant to be more fun and pleasant for more people more of the time on a daily basis.”

Music fans who wrap their ears around “Hiding in the Light” by Joseph P. Freije are certain to accomplish this in short order.

Joseph P. Freije’s “Hiding in the Light” is available online worldwide at over 700 music stores now. Don’t miss the rest of Phrygian Music’s catalog, also available anywhere great music is digitally sold.
