The composer and producer of electronic music known as Frank Arnold has released his latest official single, “World In Between.” It has been published on the Galileo Dreams Recordings independent music label and is available at iTunes, Beatport, and everywhere good digital music is sold. Mellow, spacious, and populated with several undeniable melodic phrases, “World In Between” is a reminder of just how good modern electronic music can be.
German-born Berliner Frank Arnold cites as main artistic influences Enigma and Jean-Michel Jarre. He has also been quoted as preferring music by such composers as Astrix, Astral Projection, Infected Mushroom, Schiller, Above & Beyond, Kaskade, and ATB. Arnold’s own music is often much more subdued than what is expected of the EDM genre, however. Billed on iTunes as electronic, ambient, and lounge music, Arnold’s “World In Between” is perhaps best considered an example of what fans of electronic dance music often refer to as “chillout” music.
Frank Arnold has been playing music since the age of nine, at which age he discovered an accordion in his parents’ flat. He took accordion lessons for many years before hearing Jean-Michel Jarre’s seminal album, “Oxygen IV” on the radio. (Jarre has been entered into the Guinness Book of World Records four times for performing the largest concert ever; 3.5 million people attended his show in Moscow). After being inspired by Jarre, Arnold dedicated himself to the practice and production of electronic music.
Arnold began to focus on sound design and synthesis in the early ’90s, producing several demo tapes which were ignored by record companies in that highly competitive and elitist era of professional music. He left off music production for software development until 2004, when he was exposed to Chicane, Enigma, and the talented trance artists of Israel’s digital music underground. Since that time, Frank Arnold has been sculpting his own music style, which he considers to be an amalgam of ambient, trance, and pop music.
“World In Between” by Frank Arnold is available online worldwide. Get in early.
