Welcome to the Horizon Music Network
 

Horizon Music is a record label that specializes in ambient electronic music. The musicians who have released albums on Horizon use electronics not as a gimmick, but as a legitimate means of making music. This results in music that is somewhat abstract, but can also have a lasting impact on the listener.

The goals of Horizon Music are to allow artists the freedom to record their music the way they want to, and to release and promote the results of their endeavors.

During the summer of 2013, Steve Jolliffe did an exhibition of mixed media works and musical performance called Sound Art. It took place at The Jam Factory in Oxford, England. The aim was to present a collection of paintings, music and animation projects which provide a creative and constantly-evolving exploration of sound and color.

Infinite Horizons

Infinite Horizons

This double CD was released in 1998 to commemorate the fifth anniversary of Horizon Music. The album contains rare and previously unreleased tracks by thirteen of today's most innovative contemporary instrumentalists. Artists such as Christopher Franke of Babylon 5 fame, Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Johannes Schmoelling, Lightwave, Conrad Schnitzler, Klaus Krüger and Michael Hoenig contributed music to Infinite Horizons.

"An excellent compilation album of electronic music with hints of techno and ambient. The whole history of electronica and Krautrock is covered in this collection, in some sense. There are so many wonderful sound explorations on this set. Lightwave's 'Martian Cycles' is an excellent live performance, proving electronica does 'work' in a live context. Star Sounds Orchestra's 'Anakant' is much closer to what 31st century outer space dance music will be than 100 George Lucas bar scenes. This is highly recommended spacestuff."
