VETERAN electronic musician, Michael Law, has released his first album for 20 years and only his second CD release The Silver Path.

The album was recorded over a period of two years firstly at his Rectory Studio in Westbury-sub-Mendip and after moving house completed at his new Woodbine Studio in Weston-super-Mare.

Michael's music varies from extremely ambient and classic electronic through world music to progressive rock.

Apart from the live percussion, most of the tracks are performed on hardware and software synthesisers and samplers except The Sea which is performed entirely on a multi tracked theremin.

The theremin is also the featured instrument on the live version of Hawkwind's Silver Machine (recorded at Loves Cafe, Weston-super-Mare in April) that is a bonus track on the album.

Also, on the track Om composed for a video for Celtic artist Courtney Davis, Michael plays Tibetan singing bowls, gongs and tenshangs (small cymbals) on the opening section.

As well as composing, playing, recording, engineering, mixing and producing the album Michael also photographed the cover images and designed the artwork.

Michael released his first album in 1981 and during the 80s released numerous albums including his best selling to date The Glass Isle in 1985.

In 1988 he released the first privately produced CD in the World (according to Studio Sound) The Sacred Path Of Life.
