Lichtmond - The Journey in Dolby Atmos!!

Lichtmond - The Journey
A sensual trip to fantastic worlds – the special musical experience!

The speed of life carried on waves of uncountable emotions. No idea what lies ahead but remembering what was.
Life is a unique journey through evolution and transformation
This is exactly what we experience up close with the fourth LICHTMOND production „The Journey“ by the successful producers Giorgio and Martin Koppehele - more intensely, diversified and excitingly than ever before.

Partly surrealistic, partly realistic we enjoy the different elements of this new symbolic LICHTMOND world, which tells the story of becoming, changing and passing away in a complex, songaccompanied story.

With the main character, the „Live-Giver“, we fly into a beautiful landscape and see the „magic tree“ changing rapidly with the seasons and a year passing in a breathtaking speed.
Plants and objects are brought to life. A pyramid is the symbol for the small in the large – from a small magic object in the hand of the „Life Giver“ up to a huge space ship. Transcendent stairs rise into the sky within an architecture floating in the clouds.

A universe of fantastic sounds
The unique LICHTMOND world of sounds and songs is distincvtive but still always new, giving the visual story dramaturgically perfect extra power, intensity and emotionality. The magical LICHTMOND-triangle of electronic, ethno- and rocksongs, great voices and moving poetry is ever again fascinating.
A special song-highlight this time is the amazing cover version of Robert Miles‘ instrumental classic „CHILDREN“. Giorgio and Martin created a wonderful version with the distinctive voices of LICHTMOND artists Meera Fé and Saskia Philipps. It will be released as a radio single in parallel with the album. Another highlight is the renewed cooperation with the Corsican vocal acrobats I MUVRINI and Karen Kassulat on the song „True Destination“.

Together with their wives Suna (melodies and English lyrics) and Gabi (poems) Giorgio and Martin created many more musical sound pearls with the LICHTMOND artists Meera Fé (vocals on „Children“, “Flowing like a River”, „Secrets of Life“, „Journey to Happiness“, „True Destination” and „Inner World”. Piano, Esraj, Cello and Oergrom on „Journey to Happiness“ and Piano and Hang on “The World”), Saskia Philipps (vocals on “Children” and “Turn back the Time”) and Thomas E. Killinger (poems).

Galactical high tech spheres
Naturally LICHTMOND „The Journey“ provides again some features allowing the producers to push beyond the limits of technical possibilities, in order to have an even more brilliant listening and viewing experience.

Dolby Atmos
„We are very pleased that besides our 2.0, 5.1 and 7.1 mixes the new LICHTMOND „The Journey“ Bluray includes also a discrete DOLBY ATMOS mix. The object-based, three-dimensional ATMOS mix with additional ceiling mounted loudspeakers draw the listener much more intensely and emotionally into our sound world“, say Giorgio and Martin Koppehele. „The LICHTMOND DOLBY ATMOS mixes, which were mixed by Chris Heil at the Munich MSM Studios, offer unknown opportunities especially in the field of music and also a unique, new listening experience.“

4K UHD Blu-ray
„Our 3 disc special edition includes a separate 4K UHD Blu-ray bonus disc. This 4K UHD Blu-ray contains highlights of our previous LICHTMOND productions especially rendered in 4K UHD. We are very happy that the LICHTMOND visual worlds can be enjoyed very intensely in this high UHD resolution with finest details." (UHD encoding by Silicon Philosophies, Miguel Clarke)

The Spanish visual artist-team of Imago-D Studios (Diego M. Bonati and Javier Sáenz-Messía) have surpassed themselves on „The Journey“: Besides a gorgeous, immersive 3D-experience, also enjoyable in 2D, single objects have been created even in 8K-relsolution, leading to an outstanding visual quality.

I'm very excited about this as I have all three of the previous Lichtmond Blu-Rays and think they look and sound great!! Having this in Dolby Atmos should bring it to a whole new level!!

Available from Amazon Germany for 19.99 Euro or $21.91 US : https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B01..._i=11350693031

It's technically called Pop, but some might call it New Age.

To me it's a combination of Electronic, Pop and Rock music all rolled into one.

The music has great dynamics and very active use of the surround channels.

Also worth mentioning: it's region free.

I was interested in Lichtmond since #3 was released in Pure Audio/Auro3D.

It's not to my taste. Sample on YouTube to see if it's something you might like: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...ux8IpTSw1ALdew

Yeah... I was ready to order a disc, but the youtube video wasn't at all to my taste.

The main attraction of these 3 Lichtmond titles is the 3d, not the audio. These have been available for a few years or so now on bluray 3d and are known among 3d fans to be some of the strongest 3d transfers on the format. The audio is good having said that, but the 3d and visuals are the main draw here. I own and enjoy all 3, but I'm a big 3d fan.

I’ve got a couple of these, primarily for the great 3d. Musically, it’s not bad but derivative of Pink Floyd. Half of the guitarists licks sound like they’ve been lifted directly from David Gilmour.
