Ghost

Stardust for Jennifer

If The Cocteu Twins, Slowdive, Aphex Twin & Coil had a baby....

This record the dedicated to Trenton Cornell-Duranleau, and Sean Cribbin.

I wish I knew where to start....Two long years, and 20 tracks later, here it is. “Ghost”, by Stardust For Jennifer....a lot of time, money, grief, hard work, and heartbreak went into the making of this record. A lot has changed. I pray this doesn’t fall on deaf ears. I’m more proud of this record than anything I’ve done in my whole life. Hands down. Having said that, I owe a massive thank you to Steve Sauder for taking a really good record, and making it into a great record! His contribution to this record has been massive, and I am blessed beyond belief to have such a talented, amazing friend, and bandmate. There are too many stories I could tell about this record, but I think I’m just going to leave them to history, and let the music speak for itself. This record was meant to be played LOUD!

The Death of Personal Space

Stardust for Jennifer

Ambient, Dark Ambient, Industrial Ambient, Soundscapes

For the realization of this project Stardust For Jennifer were....

Philm Martin - Keyboards, Samplers, Programming, Sound Design, Engineering, and Mastering Lou Newton - Cover Art, Concept, and Title

The material on this recording was made between July of 2012, to June of 2014. All of these pieces were improvised, or used "chance operations" for their composition. Although this release follows my first record (The Metric Paranormal), I do not consider it "The Second Record", its more like the space between the first one, and the second one. The second record proper is entitled "....as for Mother", which I hope to have finished by early 2015. This recording is 100% ambient....you will not find a drumbeat on it, so be warned. It was made, and intended to be used as a tool for meditation, contemplation, and healing....it is a "sonic decompression chamber", or if you like, "music to be played in the dark". Half of the proceeds from this recording will go to help the orphanage, school, and clinic of Botshabelo (near Johannesburg, South Africa). Botshabelo is an orphanage for children living with HIV/AIDS....I hope you find the record an enjoyable one.

This record is dedicated to my two sisters.... Nita Martin (10/1/1955 - 1/11/2014) Kathy Martin (8/27/1957 - Present)

Without the Love, Support, Friendship, Inspiration, Protection, Loyalty, and Healing that the following people have brought into my life, this recording never would have happened.

The Metric Paranormal

Stardust for Jennifer

Post Shoegaze/Dream Pop

For the realization of this project Stardust For Jennifer were....

Philm Martin - Guitars, Keyboards, Samplers, Programming, Sound Design, Voices, Engineering, and Mastering. Libby & The Liberators: Libby Decot, vocals on "Cube". Hannah Decot, voice on "Cube". Joe Walters - Cover Art

This recording was made in a number of different cities/environments, and in a number of different studios from late 2009 through mid 2012. When I mastered this record, I did not do so according to current trends in the industry which tend to favor heavily compressed music in order to achieve a greater overall volume. Therefore this recording is not as loud as most current commercial music. This is intentional. There is nothing wrong with your listening device. Although there is certainly a great deal of compression on this record, I found that when I pushed it to the levels of current commercial recordings, the songs seemed to suffer for it, the point I was trying to make seemed to get lost....the feelings, dynamics, sense of breath & expansion....the minutiae. It all seemed to suffer for it, therefore I mastered it at levels that I found best for the music itself. If you want it louder, let your amp & speakers do the work. That is why we have volume knobs, watts, and sturdy wooden matches. Nevertheless, please play this record loud, and enjoy!

Without the love, support, inspiration, and friendship of the following people, this recording would never have happened.
