Sonic Sky Records Announces Its First Release


On September 14th Sonic Sky Records will release its first title: COME ALIVE.  The 36 minute nine movement piece was composed in 5.1 Surround in 2001 for the El Paso MicroHoot. It is being released now as a surround DVD.

Though COME ALIVE is not a visual product it can be played on any DVD or Blu-Ray player hooked up to a 5.1 surround system. ┬áThis was the first piece of music to ever use a technique Erv Wilson suggested called “Continuous MOS” whereby the generating interval constantly changes in the background as the music material develops in the foreground. The result is that of a gradually changing array of scales that only occasionally pauses in any particular MOS tuning.

The music perpetually traverses the vast MOS territory in an linear fashion. Though technically a classical composition it borrows freely from multiple musical styles to create a unique trans-tonal approach to rhythm, harmony and melody.

DVD is available only at:

Stephen James Taylor has had a full time career for the last 30 years writing music for film and TV as well as the concert hall. His style is an eclectic blend of many elements. He has been helping introduce Transcendent Tonality, (via the application of much of Ervin Wilson's material), into the lexicon of film music since the early 90's. He is just now getting around to releasing his first solo album in 2013.
