Albert af Ekenstam - Made of Gold






Iona Fortune

Image may contain: 1 person


The “Tao of I” album is the debut release from Iona Fortune. She is a composer and producer from Glasgow.

She has been inspired by Eastern Philosophy and this album is slated to be the first in an 8 album series exploring all the symbols of the I Ching. Her music is influenced by oriental sounds and features a palette of instruments that includes the Guzheng, Gamelan and EMS Synthi AKS.

Haunting electronic-based ambient/classical sounds that will draw you in and take you on a mind-expanding journey.

It wouldn't surprise me to find Iona doing film scores in the future. Her sounds paint very vivid images and would compliment any film.
