Giovanni Di Domenico, Arve Henriksen & Tatsuhisa Yamamoto: Distare Sonanti




















artist: GIOVANNI DI DOMENICO, ARVE HENRIKSEN & TATSUHISA YAMAMOTO
title: Distare Sonanti
catalog number: either/7
release year: 2012
format: CD
link: http://www.and-oar.org/pop_either_7.html

Admittedly, this announcement comes a bit late here on the a/O blog due partially to spending more time using the a/O newsletter, Facebook, and now Twitter for most label news. Although having discovered that a large number of people connected to the Facebook page have not been seeing the posts due to intentional intervention on the part of Facebook, and because many of the newsletter subscribers are not seeing or receiving the e-mails (spam filters?), I'm needing to use all available means to raise awareness about the label and its activities. That might mean, giving MySpace a visit for the first time in many months as well. If people could help spread the word about the label releases, it would be greatly appreciated! and/OAR can use all the help it can get these days.


For more information about this release and to hear samples, please visit the link above.

and/OARadio Diffusion: 1 (presented by Dale Lloyd)




























Like my set for Secret Thirteen, this playlist contains a loose narrative and unfolds in cinematic fashion. The image above serves to illustrate the nature of the narrative which is otherwise open to interpretation by the listenerIn other words, the entire set should be taken in as a whole, rather than by its individual parts, while at the same time bringing some great and/or interesting music to people's attention. - Dale

Diffusion Shop 2.0(12)

As some of you may already be aware, the and/OAR Diffusion Shop has had a pretty substantial upgrade. This is the first major shop upgrade since 2002 when PayPal was first implemented. As such, please know that the way shipping costs are factored into the total price needed to be changed for orders placed outside of North America territories (and certain locales that are considered part of North America as well, such as the Caribbean region). From now on, shipping prices for the aforementioned regions will be added during the check-out process. That being the case however, international customers will find that the total cost per item should be about the same as before. To find out what the added shipping will be, just add an item to your cart and click on "Shopping Cart" at the top of the page. Then click on "View Cart", followed by a click on "Estimate Shipping & Taxes". Then add your region info to get a price quote total.

I think you will find that this new cart system will be much better than the previous one, plus there are added bonuses for frequent customers who create an account, like accruing Reward Points to obtain free items, the ability to create a Wish List, and also a Gift Certificate option.


Please keep in mind, that this new shop has taken a great deal of time and work to get set up, and it's still a work in progress, so if you encounter any glitches, please be patient and let us know immediately, so we can do our best to correct the issue.


Without further ado, I hope everyone has fun with Diffusion Shop 2.0(12)!!!
