On Top Of a Cloud Announces Compilation Placement With Rosenklang's GaelCeil Records
By: On Top Of a Cloud
Rosenklang, "a well-established label and music management company with over fifteen years of experience in the field of music marketing and management, works with artists, and partners [with] record companies distributing CDs both physically and digitally with its sales, concert and tour promoters, booking agencies and sound studios partners."
Rosenklang partners include Universal, Sony and Warner Music.
On Top Of a Cloud Composer and Founder, Leland Thomas Faegre was delighted with the placement by Rosenklang:
"The music was written in a loft, on a baby grand on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe [while performing at Squaw Valley] in the week up to Christmas, 1983. Subtitled, 'For God's Sake,' 'Pipes of Peace' is a musical documentary of the 'troubles' that have held up the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness of the people of the partitioned six counties of Northern Ireland for 30 years; and includes actual background audio of the BBC describing various sectarian terrorism in the British Province."
Offering "complete management from the development of the artists, to the continuous support and advice," Rosenklang promotes "marketing measures, bookings, equipment, TV shows, technology, recordings, and CD distribution."
Returning to "Pipes Of Peace," Faegre remembers recording the basic tracks:
"It was originally recorded in late summer 1986 at Central Recording Studios, Bower View, Athlone, Co. Westmeath, Ireland in an analogue environment in two sessions. The first session for piano, drums, bass and the BBC audio background; and for the subsequent session, I found an Uilleann piper [representing Catholicism]
And the Remix?
"For the remix completed 07/06/02, I re-recorded some drum parts, added dulcimer, harp, tin whistle and church bells [for invective] which adds considerably to the dynamic. I never considered the composition in the context that it exists now, and it is my fondest hope, that the senseless civil war in Northern Ireland can have an ultimate resolution."
Rosenklang's music titles are found on all of today's important sales and streaming platforms such as iTunes, Amazon, Spotify etc. and thus available worldwide.
Taxi, an independent artist and repertoire (A&R) firm that acts as a casting agent to the labels and Hollywood studios, describes "Pipes Of Peace":
"...most unique...The bass lines are intriguing...solidly crafted…composition, arrangement, performance and production...Peace and war are certainly tied together by the same thread, good theme here...military voice over makes the point...This is articulate and expressive...good blend of musical and lyric imagery...I thought it was wonderful how you were able to keep that pipes' drone going through all those chord changes. This piece really conjures up visuals and creates a palpable mood. Very good!"
"Pipes Of Peace" is available from iTunes, Amazon and many other fine stores:
