All the tracks on Mood 1 follow a theme of being very ambient and chill and would all be quite good for yoga, meditation or deep thought. The tracks are all mostly improvised and were recorded back in June this year (with the exception of movement 6, recorded on 28th October).
OPERATION42 will be working on putting together a second Mood album from other semi-improvised works and hopes to put that out next year sometime.
On a side note there is now a Marionette’s Manifesto Instagram setup that can be visited here.
Joseph Bagwell has re-released an old “lost” album from 2014 titled “Carbon”. The album sees it’s re-release through the Nebulae Music catalog. It was recorded between April and June 2014 and released circa July 2014, later on in the year Joseph had felt he disliked the work and removed it from stores. After a recent re listen he realized he had been too harsh on the work and felt it was a decent set of music, hence the re-release. You can purchase “Carbon” by Nebulae Music (cat. MM008) from bandcamp here.
Also put together this ominous ambient composition which is free to download.
Also been working on a new album…
The new upcoming album is a my first Nebulae Music concept album. Set in the “future” on a manned mission to Saturn’s moon, Titan. Below is some possible artwork for the album (original photographs by NASA) which i am hoping to release early next year.
And finally, i got me acting chops on:
In November’s episode of #new13 i landed a cast role as Ted after the original actor mysteriously disappeared off the face of the earth after looking up at the ceiling. Check out “The Women Under The Roof” below:
Both pieces are from my upcoming album, currently titled “Sod’s Law” and i am very proud of how they turned out. Available for free through soundcloud is the b-side composition “Dr. What?”, definitely not a cover of the theme tune from a popular British Sci-Fi show (rip doctor who, you were doing so well).
Finally, and in relation to the new compilation album, i’d like to notify you all that a good bulk of the Joseph Bagwell and Nebulae Music catalog is now available through soundcloud for free, and all of it is creative commons for your own use (please see the specific attributions for more details).
I will also be releasing all Nebulae Music releases through my main soundcloud page as appose to having separate accounts for the two projects. The Nebulae Music Facebook page will still remain in use to promote the upcoming releases, as for the Nebulae Music soundcloud i am unsure as to what i wish to do with the account for the time being.
There is still the option to support me through my bandcamp store (wink, wink), especially as the back catalog is available for such low prices starting at only £1. So sit back and enjoy.
With hope and perseverance there will be more releases coming out this year so stay tuned!
I had a lot of fun returning to my original electronic style i began with, and adding a new twist to it. Digging up some of the older tracks to work on was a trip down memory lane.
You can either stream the album through all your favorite streaming services like spotify and… well spotify. Others are available i guess, or you can buy the album from the store which includes a bonus track.
Yes, Nebulae Music is returning by no demand! A new volume in the series is set for a release at the end of August, with a promotional EP releasing mid august. The EP will blend the previous very ambient style with new rhythmic electronica.
The preceding single for my upcoming album “Erika” is now available on bandcamp. The two songs “Black Coffee” and “Hollow Words” are both songs from the album, which is set for a release on 14th August.
Please stay tuned to our Facebook Page or to the website for more news and upcoming music – Joe
Reminder that now we are officially “Marionette’s Manifesto” and independent record label/net label. There will be some new releases coming out in the next few months including my next solo release “Erika” which is very stripped down, singer-songwriter type stuff. “Leaden” will be hitting the studios soon to begin recording their debut album and a phantom from the past may be getting resurrected…
There has been updated to the youtube channel and all current releases (albums/EPs) from the label will be available to listen to in full on the channel (see playlist above). If you haven’t already seen it i released a small live video (below) of me recording some of my upcoming album “Erika”.
I have been working on a new album in my downtime and this one is a lot simpler than my other works. “Erika”, named after my first guitar, will be a singer-songwriter acoustic folk project where the songs will be just my guitar and voice (though some songs i have done some overdubs on) the most simplest and stripped down being the songs recorded in conjunction with “Live From His Bedroom” (see above video). I will also be including 4 bonus tracks which are demos of pieces from an EP i scrapped a couple of years back.
The Store itself has had an upgrade now with everything on one page in order of newest to oldest release, newest being the debut single “Pushing Up Daisies” from “Leaden“.
