Space Rock II: Return to Space - Call For Submissions! 

In 2013, the Sound for Good record label partnered with the Farm Sanctuary to offer "Space Rock: The Compilation" featuring over 100 artists from all over the globe that generously donated tracks to an incredible collection of over 14 hours of psychedelic, trance-inducing music, while helping support the Farm Sanctuary project at the same time!

Aural Films is happy to announce the follow-up project appropriately titled "Space Rock II: Return to Space." To help reach our goal of planting over 10,000 trees in 2015!  We are calling on all sonic astronauts to contribute their Space Rock tracks to this project between now and October 28th to be included in the album release that will again fall on Halloween, October 31, 2015. And keeping with tradition, we are so happy to be working again with Paul Nicholson. The artist featured on the original "Space Rock" album cover. - Read the full project details - Click Here


Beams by Eric Pietras - New Release July 28th 

Beams is San Francisco musician Eric Pietras' full-length debut record on the Aural Films netlabel. Originally developed as a soundtrack for a time-lapse photography project, Beams took on a life of its own as a soundtrack for places and moments experienced in the San Francisco Bay Area. "Beams" by Eric Pietras that will be available on digital and CD formats, Monday July 28, 2015.

A collection of nine musical vignettes that invite the listener to meander through the islands, hills and little-explored nooks of Northern California, Beams features colorful arrangements of layered synthesizers, mellotrons, electric pianos, hacked drum machines and field recordings from the Bay Area and beyond. Both documentarian and dreamlike, this record is the culmination of several years' musical and personal exploration, and is the realization of a longtime vision.

Connecting a diverse array of musical genres, influences, and mis-hearings into a work that calls to mind Popul Vuh, Brian Eno, Boards of Canada and Andrew Coleman, Beams was recorded both at home and in the legendary Tiny Telephone studio in San Francisco, where it was lovingly mixed and strategically dirtied by Jay Pellici, and mastered by notable Los Angeles ambient/experimental artist Sean McCann.

Digital download features three bonus tracks, including an alternate version of the track 'Sky Blue Morning,' which appeared on the Sound For Good release 'This Music Plants Trees.'
