Bergen (I-Newswire) August 21, 2012 - harlequins enigma`s the long road ep featuring tori amos was done in åge riisnes` primal year of 2009. the band`s heights led to special music in both 8 bit & 16 bit. the piano was a tough challenge for åge who is usually electronica orientated. with the help of tori amos he more then got by, & look at her as a professional inspirator. åge took his root, the amiga with him into the next millenium & while he composed 16 bit, he wondered if something was missing in his life & wiped the dust of the amiga 1200. 600 pieces were shaped in 16 bit & 8 bit from 08 till 2010. the 8 bit results were highly appreciated, & can be seen in the
ophidian series released not so long ago. he felt it as the parallel between 16 bit midi & 8 bit tracking filled him up & made him a better artist. the tori amos material consist of 8 tracks.

harlequins enigma`s octagon vol. 4 - loom album was done in åge`s prime year 2009. with support from elin berge, sara jensen, tangerine dream & vangelis the album got comepleted. in the end feelings of joy arose in the band & they felt they had accomplished a classical/new age album to be reckoned with. much of the material is heartfelt. inspirators under the making of the full album came from norvegian classical composer edvard grieg, & also the works of ludvig van beethoven. åge`s classical interest upon the years have been mainly grieg, beethoven, mozart, smetana, tchaikovsky, wagner, rachmaninov, vivaldi, pachelbel, ravel, bach, mendelsohn & a few others. åge does never settle for one style only, at least not so far. maybe the future studio he dreams of will lead him finally to his favourite genre & settle for it. at a later time & another doze of relaxation, new albums from harlequins enigma in coop with tangerine dream, vangelis & jean michel jarre will appear. economically for harlequins enigma, this means that releasing
these 5 coop albums will cost them an arm & a leg, which means they will come, but be prepared to see them later then you expect they inform. the planned releases are spread in a triple tangerine dream album, featuring ex-tangerine dream members & others. 1 jarre album & 1 vangelis album, all featuring additional artists. this 4th octagon release consist of 11 16 bit tracks. keywords for the album is strings, flute, brass, bells, piano & classical vocals.

both albums will be out asap via zimbalam, their distributor. they have at the current time only been released digitally. owner åge riisnes urge media to confront the coop artists on both albums, to verify that the telapathy matter between parties in coop is a reality that works for composers in our world, 2 distant places at the same time. harlequins enigma`s entire music database was made that way, unless he was alone. åge riisnes will later investigate a 2nd distributor who can provide the world with 16bit 44.1 wav files as an alternative to the compressed mp3 & m4a formats currently
available in common music stores today.

About harlequins enigma
I drew much inspiration from early 80s/90s+ hits in my heart & had a nice period in 2009 where many More..of the “skyscrapers” came to life. a romance had much to do with parts of it. in my early ophidian period, i was influenced by a vast number of artists. including amiga artists atjazz, øistein j. eide - boom jinx, jesper kyd, bjørn lynne, phenomena, jochen hippel & raphael gesqua. in addition i had a nice collection of audio cd’s like jean michel jarre - chronologie, vangelis - blade runner, pink floyd - the wall, limp bizkit, korn, p.o.d., tons of the best billboard music & classical pieces from beethoven, grieg, wagner & others. they were all part of my root elements. i
also had an early heavy metal period with favourites at the time: metallica, king diamond, motley crue, ratt, whitesnake, rainbow, the clash & more + i grew fond of kenji kawai’s ghost in the shell soundtrack among others as my roots were made from early 1990’s to the next millenium. night pulse & the silhouette of dr. voodoo was based much upon heartbeat b.p.m. - but much of it drew juice from manga, metal etc, like alt. I am single, restless & had periods in my life where music was calling on me for strange reasons. it is sort of a puzzle.
In the beginning in 1991, i sat down with a new amiga & started experimenting on a program called startracker, i quickly swapped for protracker which was alot better. my first notes came in the x-it tune which was mixed in 2009 on a amiga 1200 where i live now, with a nice result. the amiga scene back in the 90`s was packed with exciting music & since most had or could afford an amiga it was easy to take a step into the music world sampling your 8 bit sound from cd`s or getting some shareware floppy disks. these 8 bit tunes will become a retro harlequins enigma line & will be eq`ed & enhanced & maybe multi-tracked, & some will even be re-made in studio with acoustic drums etc.. – this line will be called the harlequins enigma ophidian series. equipment used during those days was: ensoniq sq1+, ensoniq eps16+, ensoniq vfx, korg wavestation, korg m1, yamaha qy20, roland r-70, kawai k1-ii, kawai k4, roland jv80 & a sample cd. my last tune after starting was jazzy harlequin in 1997, and i felt i had gotten above an intermediate state i recall. i then went to school & got ill later – many a struggle it was but recovered. 4 years ago harlequins
enigma was founded by me, & like 600 tunes was made during that 3 year period.
we now look ahead & seek a record contract. in the beginning in may 2008,
harlequins enigma had some involvement with maniacs of noise, but the cooperation ended shortly after, where åge riisnes, elin berge, sara jensen and a little later on katie leung did co-ops and sessions with klaus schulze, jean michel jarre, tangerine dream, jan garbarek, dave weckl, kitaro, vangelis, tori amos and several others. 430 16-bit tracks and 170 8-bit tracks were made in this period from may 2008 until february 2010. night lights was then released at tunecore in august 2010. in the two previous months they released twenty four music videos. the videos “sun moon stars” and “million thrills” were taken down due to a mix-up in katie’s name and an issue with øistein eide. sun moon stars & million thrills have been re released at a later time. 31.12.2010 dark light is released via tunecore. 9 singles & 12 albums have been released since new year. albums are: ruby & jade photograph, lyra, stargazer, heartbeat, octagon volume 1. – the following 3 were best of albums in a series of 3 albums called “the journey of harlequins enigma” – released via cdbaby.com. & of course octagon volume 2. + lately “alt” on nimbitmusic.com - harlequins enigma are now on jango.com - radio, hoping the world will spot them, & hope their material from octagon volume 2 is being taken seriously. with the release of “alt” & recently octagon volume 3, they seek third partys who might like their music. during the release of octagon volume 3, harlequins enigma have swapped distributor to zimbalam. december 2011 saw the release of dance single time dance. 2012`s budget release ophidians: caricature personalities was a breath of fresh air. junodownload.com recommends the track 90`s waves feat. jean michel jarre, sara
jensen & elin berge under the leftfield genre for april 2012.
during my 20`s, i was hospitalized & came in touch with the psychiatry division. a little later during medicination i came in touch with personell that talked to me, & to my surprise they communicated via telepathy one day in my mind. this became common as the years passed. i rely on some help now, but i am aware of that there exist enemies as well as friends on this mental matter. when i was 36 i started composing again & after a little while i got vistors, if you ask me why, i would have to say that it was the joy & inspiration from the composers that made them come to me mentally. everything i`ve made was done in my flat in bergen, norway. i hold the copyright to the material & i`m aware of the fact that i have evolved mentally & musically because of all inspiration & help in this period. at the same time i had
enemies which have made my life a living hell. i have mentioned in despair tons of information around the subject at my homepage www.harlenia.com under a period of strong pressureLess..
