A History of Progressive Music from Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Eastern Europe, Japan, South America and points beyond!

THE GOLDEN AGE is a Multimedia CD featuring 40 minutes of music, enhanced with CD-ROM technology - a complete Audio / Visual experience.

The Music: Since 1980 Japanese master musician Hiro Kawahara has been exploring the realms of electronic and progressive music releasing albums as leader of the groups Osiris, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, and more recently Heretic. His new album, featured on THE GOLDEN AGE, contains 40 minutes of music recorded between 1980 & 1999. A dense Zen electronic tone poem, it echoes the works of such luminaries as Kitaro, Steve Roach and Robert Fripp, yet has a distinct quality that puts it in a category all its own.

The Magazine: A Multimedia CD-ROM extravaganza, THE GOLDEN AGE contains 1,100 Articles, 300 rare Photos, 1,200 Reviews, 350 Discographies, a complete Index + 25 minutes of 16-bit, digitized audio / video by Amon Duul II, Popol Vuh and Urban Sax. In addition, there is a brand new issue of EUROCK Magazine. It contains recent articles and interviews featuring some of Europe’s original journalists and musicians who created the scene.
