from Kevin's blog:

Lullaby for the Hearts of Space is being restored and will be re-released. All the original tape masters and safety copies of this piece had disintegrated due to a faulty emulsion formula on Ampex 456. (You recording engineers know what I

Great news!

It's a truly space music classic. I only hope Kevin won't "tangentize" the recording Very Happy

How many years has he been telling everyone he's going to re-release this cd?

Ill believe it when its in my cd player in the meantime I have an excellent digitized cassette copy on my hard drive. This is a crucial release in the space music genre of music and should have been released in the 1990s. Its not berlin school and its not for anyone wanting pretty melodies instead what an open ear gets is am audio treasure trove of improvised heartfelt music on vintage analog equipment. It really is a diamond in the rough.

A real shame artists drag their proverbial feet re-releasing music fans really want.

Bert please keep us in the loop when the is actually available!!

You could try to reach him on Facebook, not sure if he is active there. Look for Kevin Braheny Fortune.

That is wonderful news, made my day. I wonder if there will be a bonus track? I hope that this album gets exposure to a new generation of electronic music fans & gets Kevin some much deserved attention.

again taken from the labels press-sheet:

Lullaby for the Hearts of Space”, composed in 1980, has yet to be released on disc. Previously only available on cassette, this remastered edition will see its first ever digital and CD release. As a result, the album has been long sought after. Featuring two tracks, “Lullaby for the Hearts of Space” showcases live improvisation.

Musician Kevin Braheny Fortune is set to release his highly anticipated album. “Lullaby for the Hearts of Space” (to be released on June 16th, 2017 on Hearts of Space Records) is based on a live performance for Hearts of Space Radio. Featuring improvised tracks, “Lullaby for the Hearts of Space” has become one of the most sought-after ambient recordings of the era.

Kevin detailed the creation of his upcoming album:

“Nothing was pre-set. My creative process had been improvisation based upon a kind of feedback with dancers, and aliveness that we cycled between us. Having built the instrument, I was extremely facile in creating sound from nothing and responding quickly to the energetic shifts in the room. On this day however, I was getting nowhere.

I began the soft sounds that ushered in the twilight, and the motif that would define the harmony of the piece. Picking up my soprano sax, I turned toward the mic and control room window and was somewhat startled to see wall-to-wall people pressed up against the glass watching and listening. I felt connected to the sounds, the people, the wave of energy, and that thirty minutes of music felt timeless.”

“Lullaby for the Hearts of Space” is available from retailers, gift shops, and online music outlets in all physical and digital formats:

Hearts of Space Records Bandcamp: http://bit.ly/KevinBrahenyFortune
