    So this summer, on a whim, I decided to record an album containing some of my older songs reworked and a whole bunch of new ones. What I ended up with was 'Cassini'. You can download it at bandcamp for free:

    http://sithuayemusic.bandcamp.com

    Or if somehow (very unlikely!) the free downloads runs out for the month you can get it via dropbox:

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/39302626/Sithu Aye - Cassini (MP3).rar

    I hope you enjoy the album as much I did making it for you guys!

    Here's the tracklisting and the album art again! (I posted it already in an older preview thread!)

    1: Pillars of Creation
    2: Orion
    3: Cassini
    4: Messier Object
    5: Double Helix
    6: Dirac Sea
    7: Multiverse Part I: Origin
    8: Multiverse Part II: Divergence
    9: Multiverse Part III: Alternate Realities

    My god.
    That was absolutely incredible! I thought I knew exactly what to expect (nothing short of amazing), but I was not ready for this!
    Man, you have so much flavour! I love your style and unique sound, it's just awesome.

    I presume you like Halcyon? Reminds me a fair amount of Pastures here and there,particularly your lead playing. I can safely say you've just become one of my two favourite guitarists ever, alongside Plini.

    The clarity, ambience and character of the production is just euphoric. Easily one of the best listenting experiences I've had :yesway:

    How do you get that lead tone? Plini shared his settings before but I tried it and sounded nothing alike - I presume it's just awesome technique :lol:

    I'm going to bed to try and comprehend what the hell I just listened to :hbang:

    P.S. When is your next album coming out?:fawk:

    Cheers dude! I hope you enjoy it!

    I love Plini's work, although honestly I feel like he's a whole level or two above me! I do what I can, but I'm pretty sure he can do it better!

    The lead tone is actually the same as my rhythm tone but with more gain and a post eq mid boost at about 300Hz I think (obviously a bit of reverb and delay too!). The mid boost is just to get it sounding fatter really (like I said before, Guitar Rig 4 and Legion + Recabinet Mesa Boogie impulses).

    Anyway, I'm really appreciate that you liked it! I tried to make it as good as possible to listen in one sitting and I'm glad I've done that for you!

    P.S. As for my next album, expect an EP soon and maybe another album next summer? I'll see how my uni works goes!

    So i've only gotten to listen to a couple songs, but from what I've heard, :bowdown:AWESOME:bowdown:. Songwriting is phenominal, mix is amazing, assuming the whole thing is as good as what I've heard, this is gonna be one of my go to instrumental albums.

    Great stuff but I can't help but notice that the first track is called Pillars of Creation which also a song by Keith Merrow and his stuff is also astronomy themed.

    Dude, I'm so glad you like it! I hope the whole thing was as good as you had hoped!

    Cheers dude!

    Regard the opening track, it could have for all intents and purposes had been called 'Intro' but I prefered the uplifiting feel the title that 'Pillars of Creation' had to reflect the overall feel of the intro track.

    Also, I hadn't heard about Keith Merrow until you mentioned him and I looked him up. Shame really, he's an awesome player! But yeah, the astronomy/physics theme is really all due to the fact that I'm a physics student and therefore a massive physics nerd and astronomy genuinely fascinates me! The Pillars of Creation is one awesome looking nebula!

    Only heard the first track, I will check the whole thing out later. Really impressive, I can't wait to get home and listen to it all.

    duuuude been looking forward this to a while, up to the 2nd track and its fucking amazing! dont sell yourself short on how good this is, so far for me this is surely up there with Gru's album :yesway:

    and that guitar tone (especially lead, holy shit) is fucking beautiful

    some parts sound very influenced by other things (animals as ledaers/gru - in a good way) but fuck, im more guilty of this than you probably :lol:

    will probably be back to tell you how good this is when ive listened more :)

    Very cool album! It definitely has that AAL vibe! and all of the instruments-tones sound great and blend together so well!

    Great Job! I would have paid for an album like this!

    Holy shit..
    Liked on Facebook and downloaded...this is incredible stuff man!
    I must admit though, while I appreciate the fact that you're making sure your music gets out there without caring about any money, I feel bad not paying for this... can't you set it up on bandcamp so you can let people like me pay if they want? :)

    Thanks for taking the time to check it out, I hope you enjoy it!

    Thanks dude! I'm really glad that you like it and thanks for sharing it on facebook!

    I love how everybody is reading different influences out of the record. I think I've done a good job mashing all my influences together! Glad you guys like the album!

    :wub:

    I said I'd release it for free and I'm going to stick to that for the time being. The free downloads for the month on bandcamp are running out thought so I may have to change it to a 'pay what you want' so that people can still download from bandcamp if they want to.

    I'm very glad that you like the album anyhow!

    Cheers man, I'm happy that you like it!

    True facts: all three parts of Multiverse were recorded in two days :yesway:

    Any more feedback guys? You've all been awesome so far!
