In practice, exposing seedlings according to formula-driven light cycles may result in minimizing over-exposure to light energy in the early, sensitive stages of growth. In embodiments, the lighting system in the growing system may be programmed with a lighting algorithm in accordance with the formulas presented herein.
Thus, a computer may be programmed to adjust the timing and duration of lights based on the identified stage of growth of a plant in accordance with calculated light cycles. The algorithm may be further programmed to select specific wavelengths in accordance with certain plant species.
For example, basil has a photosynthetic preference for blue light and wavelengths of nm. In an embodiment, plant-specific LED grow lights may emit light of a certain wavelength or color.
Concomitantly, temperature may also be reduced. Reducing lighting and heating in the pre-harvest stage may slow cell replication and may avoid excessive nutrient density.
In one embodiment, the nutrition provided is adjusted based upon root temperature. In other embodiments, the root temperature is adjusted based upon the nutrition provided. In an embodiment, the CO 2 pressure may be changed based upon the maturity of the plant. Other similar permutations of the interplay between variables may be envisioned.
This disclosure also provides a method and system for optimal carbon dioxide enrichment and the use of the oxygen generated by a plant for plant production. The system involves suspending carbon dioxide tubing in a secured position on one side of a plant media tray.
The carbon dioxide tubing may also be secured to either the wall, the shelving unit, float tray or tub to enable blowing the carbon dioxide across the plants and allowing for the carbon dioxide to be evenly dispersed relative to the plants.
The systems and methods for carbon dioxide enrichment may be used in any growing system, such as a closed environment hydroponic system. When carbon dioxide levels are between and PPM, plants consume more light energy, base nutrients, water and oxygen to create a maximum rate of photosynthetic activity. This maximum rate of photosynthetic activity results in the astonishing plant yields gardeners strive for.
The major hurdle in achieving this goal is the fact that the average level of carbon dioxide in the air is merely PPM.
While the indoor gardening industry has experienced amazing advances in lighting, nutrients, pest control, cloning and hydroponics, a limiting factor in maximizing the potential of an indoor garden is the amount and lack of available carbon dioxide in a grow room's climate. Carbon dioxide is one of the three main components needed for plant growth, but the level of carbon dioxide in the air is only 0. At such a low level of PPM in the air, plants can easily consume all of the carbon dioxide in a hydroponic environment in a matter of hours.
Plants are only able to produce up to the limited amount of carbon dioxide available, and once carbon dioxide levels are PPM or lower, photosynthetic activity will diminish and may eventually stop altogether. When the carbon dioxide supply in a hydroponic environment ceases to exist, so does photosynthesis.
The process of photosynthesis mixes carbon dioxide and water to produce sugars and free oxygen. Photosynthesis occurs only in the presence of light and is therefore useless, and even harmful to enrich the plants with carbon dioxide during the dark lights off period of plant production.
Research has shown that increasing carbon dioxide will increase plant size, yield, vigor and speed up growth. Plants grown with increased levels of carbon dioxide are also less prone to common insect and disease issues. However, a carbon dioxide concentration greater than PPM may cause partial or complete closure of the plant stomas tiny openings in the plant leafwhich is a vital component for photosynthesis.
Thus, careful control of ambient carbon dioxide levels is critical in maintaining an optimal grown environment. Carbon dioxide is heavier than air. At 77 degrees Fahrenheit, carbon dioxide weighs 66 ounces per 3 cubic feet, while air weighs 42 ounces per 3 cubic feet at the same temperature. Aside from being heavier than air, carbon dioxide moves slowly downward from its distribution point and only travels a short distance through the diffusion process.
When implementing carbon dioxide enrichment methods, careful planning and positioning of equipment may ensure the dispersed carbon dioxide is directed toward the plant zone so it can be absorbed by the plants at a maximum capacity.
Plants will consume all of the available carbon dioxide around their leaves within minutes. Thus, a need exists for a method and system that disperses carbon dioxide from an optimal distribution point, in a controlled manner to ensure optimal levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and in accordance with a lighting profile.
While there are different forms of carbon dioxide enrichment such as dry ice, fermentation and decomposition of organic matter, the two most commonly used forms of carbon dioxide enrichment are combustion generators and compressed carbon dioxide tanks.
Carbon dioxide generators are industrial units that burn fuel to produce carbon dioxide. As a result of the high amount of excess heat put out by these units, they are typically suggested for indoor gardens or greenhouse operations larger than cubic feet. To avoid the increased temperature issues that coincide with carbon dioxide generators, many closed loop hydroponic environments use a compressed carbon dioxide tank and regulator as their form of carbon dioxide enrichment.
Compressed carbon dioxide comes in metal containers under high pressure with pressure ranges from pounds per square inch PSI to PSI. The regulator controls the quantity of carbon dioxide emitted into the indoor garden atmosphere, while the timer controls precisely when and for how long the carbon dioxide is released.
Tubing, such as vinyl tubing, is attached to the tank regulator and positioned in the carbon dioxide distribution tube for dispersing the carbon dioxide. Since oxygen is released by plants while carbon dioxide is being absorbed, this creates a dilution effect that diminishes the carbon dioxide concentration. As a result, it would be an improvement to have a method and system that would arrange the carbon dioxide tubing distribution point in a manner where the carbon dioxide would be absorbed while the expired oxygen is moved away from the plant.
The removal of the expired oxygen from the system is important since it could migrate back into the plants and dilute the carbon dioxide concentrations. Thus, there is also a need of not only removing the oxygen from the vicinity of the plants but also capturing it, such as for utilization. As a result, there is a need for a method and system that would evenly disperse carbon dioxide from a distribution point directly from the side of a grow area, regardless of the design and layout of the hydroponic system and capture the oxygen so that it could be utilized inside the nutrient tank of the hydroponic system.
Carbon dioxide distribution in accordance with vector 36 results in a negative pressure zone above the plants by creating a circular wind motion 37 above the seedlings and plants. The carbon dioxide is exchanged with oxygen which is removed via inertial displacement. One of the features of the system and method according to the present disclosure is Culture Hub - Eruca EP (Vinyl) fact that by Culture Hub - Eruca EP (Vinyl) the carbon dioxide across the hydroponic grow media, the possibility of carbon dioxide dilution with the oxygen is greatly diminished or eliminated.
This oxygen can then be recovered and blown back into the hydroponic nutrient tank to oxygenate the nutrient solution.
A bubbler in the nutrient tank may be used to introduce the expired oxygen. In order to maintain optimal levels of carbon dioxide in the system, the hydroponic unit may include a carbon dioxide system controller in communication with a carbon dioxide sensor.
When the sensor detects that carbon dioxide levels have dropped below a threshold, additional carbon dioxide may be released. When the sensor detects that carbon dioxide levels have exceeded a threshold, carbon dioxide dispersion may be ceased. Additionally, excess carbon dioxide may be vented. Certain plant species require specific levels of carbon dioxide to achieve optimal growth, such as certain lettuces and basil. The processor may be programmed with a carbon dioxide saturation algorithm to control carbon dioxide levels in accordance with the species being grown in the hydroponic unit, with a growth stage of the plants being grown, a combination thereof, and the like.
In embodiments, the system for carbon dioxide dispersion may be deployed on a rack so that individual racks in a hydroponic unit may each have a local carbon dioxide flow vector that results in a local negative pressure above the rack and re-capture of expired oxygen at the bottom of the rack. As the plant absorbs carbon dioxide, the resulting oxygen is captured and negative pressure is applied by fans to push the oxygen towards the floor.
Once the oxygen is pushed into the floor area, a device picks ups the oxygen and blows it into the hydroponic reservoir tank thus oxygenating the water. Oxygen can be recovered and aspirated back into the hydroponic nutrient tank. In embodiments, the hydroponic system is in a sealed container and high pressure CO 2 hyperbaric is utilized in the environment.
In embodiments, to assist with CO 2 absorption, it may be beneficial to spray an aqueous solution on the leaves that is saturated with CO 2. In embodiments, the partial pressure of nitrogen may be lowered and the partial pressure of CO 2 increased in the hydroponic system. This disclosure also concerns a method and system of optimizing plant cell growth in a hydroponic environment by utilizing low voltage electroculture.
This is done by supplying a positive and negative electrical connection into the water medium of the Culture Hub - Eruca EP (Vinyl) solution to excite the plant root structure.
The amount of energy provided in the hydroponic water solution varies depending on plant species and the timeline of the growth cycle of the plant.
Electroculture represents a field of study that examines the effects of electricity on plants. As electrical charges work to regulate metabolic processes in cells and tissues, directing electricity into or onto plant structures may further stimulate these same processes.
In doing so, plants may become more resistant to cold temperatures, diseases and other pathogens. The earth has a natural frequency of approximately 8 Hz. It has been found that, by passing a small current though a plant and plant root system at a certain frequency, such as the earth's natural frequency, plant growth and yield can be increased considerably.
A frequency meter 45 may be placed on the positive 42 and negative 43 sides of the transformer 41 to measure the outflow and inflow of the electrical current to assure the right frequency cycle is used for a particular plant species. Timing of the electrical current may correspond with one or more of a lighting profile and a growth profile of the plants in the hydroponic system to provide varied amount and timing of root stimulation.
A timer 46 may be attached to the transformer 41 to regulate the timing of the root stimulation. For example, electrical current may only be passed through the liquid nutrient solution at a the time the lighting for the plants is ON. An algorithm may be used in conjunction with a root stimulation profile to apply electrical current.
A method for adjusting the temperature of the nutrient solution of a high density closed loop hydroponic plant growth system is provided. The timing of heating and cooling the nutrient solution is calculated from an equation based upon the seedling growth inside the hydroponic environment along with the power and distance of the grow lighting. The growing of plants hydroponically involves supplying an aqueous solution to the roots of the plants, for example by spraying solution onto the roots or by keeping them immersed in the liquid solution.
The solution is principally water with fertilizers and other nutrients added. Optimal growth, or even survival of the plants, may require that the roots be provided with an air-enriched solution and kept within a specified temperature range.
Typically, this is a lower temperature range than required for the portion of the plant above the roots. This parallels the situation in nature where the roots of the plant are in the cooler ground, whereas the upper portions of the plant are in the air that is usually warmer than the ground when the plant is growing. The hydroponic nutrient solution is not just a mix of fertilizer salts and water, there are also a number of organisms and compounds commonly found in hydroponic systems, such as dissolved oxygen, which is vital for the health and strength of the root system as well as being necessary for nutrient uptake.
Most growers are familiar with the need to have some form of aeration in their nutrient solution—whether it is in a recirculation or a media based system. In nutrient film technique NFT systems, this is often accomplished with the use of an air pump or by allowing the nutrients to fall back into the reservoir, thus introducing oxygen.
However, the effect of temperature of the solution on the dissolved oxygen levels and on root respiration rates also needs to be taken into account. As the temperature of the nutrient solution increases, the ability of that solution to maintain dissolved oxygen decreases. While this may not seem like a huge drop in the amount of dissolved oxygen, as the temperature of the root system warms, the rate of respiration of the root tissue also increases and more oxygen is required by the plant.
This means that the dissolved oxygen in solution will be much more rapidly depleted and the plants can suffer from oxygen starvation for a period of time. The hydroponic growing operation may include a cooling system to cool the aqueous solution before it is fed to the roots of the plant.
This cooling system may be separate from the reservoir used to store the solution. In addition, the solution may be aerated to optimize plant growth, such as with a separate aerator.
The cooling system may be a condenser placed in or adjacent to the nutrient solution reservoir or throughout the nutrient distribution system. Alternatively, the ambient temperature in the hydroponic unit may be turned down. In any event, temperature sensors may be deployed throughout the hydroponic unit, such as on racks, in the nutrient solution reservoir, in the hydroponic beds, on the floor, on the ceiling, and the like to report back to a processor the temperature of the hydroponic unit, solutions, and the like.
In phase A of the plant's growth life cycle, cooler nutrient solution temperatures are desired while the plant is adjusting to its new liquid environment. In embodiments, the plants may be further chilled before harvest, such as in order to halt or slow cell replication. In an embodiment, a processor may be programmed with a heating timing algorithm that calculates equations and Culture Hub - Eruca EP (Vinyl) a temperature, by either heating or cooling, of the nutrient solution to optimize plant growth.
The processor may first use the determined growth stage to identify which Phase the plant is in when making optimal temperature calculations. Further, the algorithm may be able to make optimal temperature calculations based on a predicted growth curve for a plant species, given data about when it was planted, and the like.
Thus, measurement of plant growth may not be required or may be used to confirm the optimal temperature calculations. In accordance with the changing temperature in the hydroponic unit, any excess heat may be reclaimed. In embodiments, the heating and cooling systems of the hydroponic unit enable high temperature growth of sun-sensitive species.
For example, lettuce can handle high temperature, but not in sunlight. In the hydroponic unit, lettuce can be grown at high temperature conditions using red and blue light instead of sunlight.
Hydroponics may be described as a method of growing plants or other vegetation without the use of soil and is well-known as such. However, current apparatus operates essentially on a batch system whereas there is a need, particularly in the production, for example of fodder for animals, of a continuous system which will operate independently of the external environment where necessary, to produce a regular and continuous supply of herbage.
The present disclosure seeks to provide a method and apparatus for such a continuous system. In its broadest aspect the present disclosure provides a method that includes taking the seedlings of a desired plant, placing them in a receptacle inside a high density high growth growing system which provides conditions for the growth of the seedlings and growth of the mature plants, and then removing the mature plants from the receptacle.
The disclosure further provides an apparatus that includes a series of racks each capable of receiving a receptacle containing plants, each divided into a number of shelves in which the plants may be exposed to the necessary environmental conditions for the particular stage of growth in that zone. The system includes a series of racks 55each capable of receiving plants on a float that is located on a float tray The system also includes an HVAC system According to the present disclosure there is also provided a receptacle for receiving plants including a tray having a drain hole, the drain hole being fitted with a drain control which includes a drain and tube that returns the nutrient solution from the hydroponic system to the reservoir tank.
A pump in the reservoir tank pumps the nutrient solution up to the top of the rack where it is then piped downwards and out to the flood tray. Additionally, the racks that are bolted together are also bolted to the floor with a designed floor plate and braced across with a structural bracing plate. Referring now to the drawings, and in particular FIG. The contained hydroponic system contains racks on both sides of the container.
The rack system includes a number of racks 55 installed from right to left and a number of other racks 55 sloping from left to right as viewed in FIG. The racks may traverse the length of the rack system which is divided lengthwise into a number of zones which are the individual racks described in FIG. The apparatus illustrated in FIG. Preferred forms of plant receptacles may be a polystyrene float that float in the rack-mounted trays, but in general the plant receptacle may include any tray capable of receiving plants having some form of drain hole to allow spent or excess nutrient or seeds to be removed.
Trays containing young plants are entered onto the rack of the apparatus onto the flood tray The apparatus may be divided into four. Each zone is of such a length as to hold a certain number of trays of plants, and in many cases the zones may hold equal numbers of trays of plants. Spacing in the racks may be high density. In one embodiment, there may be mm between growth spaces, but optimal spacing may vary on the species.
For example, basil may be spaced at 92 mm. Trays may pull out from the racks. Trays may be mounted in such a way as to enable easy removal from the rack, such as with sliders, wheels or the like. For mobile embodiments, the racks may include shock absorbers.
Each rack may be bolted across from each other with a structural beam 65 that prevents the racks from swaying and provides stability in the overall rack design.
In embodiments, the rack system may include an HVAC system, a sealed door system 56and a top rack structural beam system The rack includes an attached plumbing design module 61 for pumping nutrient solution up to each of the six shelves into the flood trays from the nutrient fluid reservoir tank. Additionally, return plumbing 63 from the flood trays may be bolted to the opposite side of the rack. Referring now more particularly to FIG. There may be a central drain orifice at one end of each flood tray with tubing that extends down along the rack and into the nutrient reservoir In embodiments, as in FIG.
The amount, concentration, and type of nutrient solution may be different for each rack according to the growth cycle of the particular plant being grown. Therefore, each of the racks 55 may be supplied from a separate tank of nutrient fluid reservoir 40 which may be pure water or may have growth aiding nutrients or other chemicals within it.
The conditions can be selected at each stage in the plant's growth to favor maximum yields. Carbon dioxide tubing 34 may be installed on the rack system. The carbon dioxide may be blown across the shelving units to provide an increased amount of saturation, as described herein.
The amount and pressure of the carbon dioxide in the piping may be selected in accordance with the type of plant species.
The light necessary to induce growth may be provided, for example, by means of fluorescent tubes or LED lights that are mounted to the underside of the shelving unit, as shown in FIG. Alternatively or in addition, the apparatus may be situated so as to receive sunlight either externally or through glass, transparent plastics materials or the like.
Once the system of the disclosure has been set in operation and seedlings have been planted, an apparatus such as those depicted in FIG. A plate is measured to be at least three times the width of the shelving leg width and at least 1. The feet use an L-shaped bracket that is attached to the bottom plate Additionally, holes are drilled in the plate to allow bolting to the floor A low profile lighting system may provide more space for growth. In embodiments, the rack-based system in the high growth, high density, growing system may be height-adjustable with high-density spacing, such as to accommodate plant height e.
Movable racks may allow enough height when approaching maturity while enabling enough power to be delivered at the beginning of growth. Movement may be automated based on height measurement, such as with a laser or video measurement. For static racks, an optimal light to seedling distance may be calculated. One distance may be eight inches. Optimal lighting placement for LED lighting may optimize plant growth in a high growth, high density, closed environment hydroponic system.
A low voltage growing system may include lighting and mechanical systems connected to a step down transformer that converts high voltage a. Using a low voltage facilitates the use of solar panels or wind generators to provide electrical power for the unit and enables the use of cheaply and readily available 12v electrical systems and batteries.
The fixtures and mechanicals are generally smaller; and 2. There is a wider variety of beam spreads in the bulbs available for grow lighting. For the grow lighting, the reason smaller fixtures are possible is simple. Since the filament is smaller, the glass bulb around it or the LED can be made smaller, and therefore the fixture can also be designed to be smaller.
The reason more beam spreads are available in a low voltage light is because a small filament or an LED can be aimed much more accurately than a larger one.
For applications where light is to be pointed at a specific spot, such as a specific plant, this may be important. The light created at the filament bounces off the reflector and goes in the direction it is pointed. If the glowing filament is very Culture Hub - Eruca EP (Vinyl), very precisely designed reflectors may be used to position the light beam. With a larger filament, it is easy to end up with light beams indiscriminately bouncing. Certain HID grow lights, for example, with tight beam spreads may be used in much larger scale applications, where great distances from the plant to the light are involved, or less precision is required.
Additionally, low voltage hydroponic mechanical pumps, aerators, and fans are much more reliable and use much less energy than their traditional a. The average life of d. Most voltage used for hydroponic components are typically a.
Standard grow lights are designed to operate at volts. Since volts is standard using a 12 d. This is often a significant part of the cost of a low voltage system. A small transformer may power a single light, or a giant transformer may power a plurality of lights. There are certain wattage ratings for transformers that have become somewhat standardized. For example, for powering watts of lights, a transformer rated for at least watts should be used.
In embodiments, there may be special wiring requirements for low voltage, which simply means that a thicker wire than is typically used in a regular line voltage system is used. One of the biggest advantages of using low voltage wiring in a hydroponic environment is that certain national or local codes require electrical connections to be enclosed in some sort of metal box, and grounded.
This is true for low voltage also; however, circuits under 60 watts do not have to meet this requirement. New transformers typically have plastic cases because they have overload and short-circuit breakers built in. Therefore, it may not be necessary to ground the low voltage side of the transformer, only the volt wires coming in to it. Any circuit over 60 watts should be in a metal box. This disclosure provides systems and methods for overcoming the adverse effects of root nutrition depletion during hydroponic cultivation when the nutrient solution enters at one end of a hydroponic system and is drained at a second end.
One of the major problems of hydroponic systems is that of uneven nutrient solution feeding to plants in a hydroponic flood tray environment. When plants in a water-based solution start to develop root systems, water tends to flow around the central portion of the flood tray and follow the path of least resistance on the outer parts of the flood tray. In static nutrient solutions, this problem is not as extreme. The absorption from the area immediately around the roots and the provision of fresh nutrients and dissolved oxygen to the roots are limited to that which can be achieved naturally and does not create a problem of some plants receiving fewer nutrients than others.
This problem can be mitigated or overcome by a method of growing a plant hydroponically which includes supplying nutrient solution to the root of a plant by increasing the pressure and flow of the solution toward the center portion of the flood tray.
This, in turn, would provide more solution through the center of the flood tray where the root system of the plant is the densest. The flow of nutrient solution may be induced by capillarity and takes the form of increased flow of the nutrient solution moving along the surfaces of the interlinked root structure. To take advantage of this supply of nutrient solution the roots of the plants, which are themselves hydrophilic, may develop intimate contact with flow and draw nutrients and water from them at the same rate as the plants on the outer edges of the flood tray.
As long as the amount of nutrient solution flowing is greater than that taken up by the root system, there will be a residual flow through and beyond the roots.

Many thanks. Facebook: www. When you put on Dead Letter Circus' eponymous debut EP, it is still as fucking amazing as it was 10 years ago The sound it created is iconic, and the bands it inspired are dotted across the Australian landscape. It is legacy. Re-imagining the EP to honour its anniversary, Dead Letter Circus will be touring Australia inplaying the iconic tracks with a unique new interpretation.
By no means the first time Dead Letter Circus have stretched the creative boundaries of their own work, The Endless Mile is in part a response to fan demand from the success of DLC's Reimagined tour.
This band — whose original conquest a decade ago was to create a new sound — prove yet again why they are one of Australia's best, most artistically fearless bands.
Where were you a decade ago that you aren't now? Where are you now that you weren't a decade ago? The music we carry with us is a mixtape for our very existence — intertwined with our own memories. After 10 years on the road, three ground-breaking albums and multiple ARIA nominations, Dead Letter Circus are not the band they were at the beginning. They are a band at their peak The fact that people connected so deeply with our frantic hyper rock to this day still blows my mind.
We can't wait to show you the new versions of the songs. Tickets will go on sale Wednesday, December 14 at deadlettercircus. The band will be releasing a limited edition recording of the reimagined EP, available at all shows on The Endless Mile. FOCUS 8. After the reunion of Focus and the release of the Focus 8 album, the band toured the world and was introduced to new musical styles and influences.
Thijs van Leer said of the album: "For Focus it was a thrill to first jam with Marvio and Marcio in a club in Niteroi and then end up in Rio de Janeiro in order to compose and record these beauties. Having one of the best drummers in Europe with Pierre van der Linden and one of South America's best drummers with Marcio Bahia on the same album makes the world a better and happier place! Here they are!
The recordings were made when the band was touring to promote the Focus 9 — New Skin album and features the last line-up of the band, which was Thijs van Leer, Pierre van der Linden, Bobby Jacobs and former guitarist Niels van der Steenhoven.
The DVD is playable worldwide. These titles are now available via mainstream retailers, distributors, Amazon and iTunes for the first time as will remain available for new fans collecting all of the band's albums in the future. Colombian band La Malasangre has shared their brand new video for "Contracorriente" Countercurrentthe first single for their newest homonymous album, due for release in For lovers of bands like Tool, Porcupine Tree, Anathema and Opeth, they blend some of the common elements of progressive sound with some latin rhythms that allows them to explore and reach new limits into their sound.
Brieg Guerveno is the project of one man, that of Brieg Guerveno, Breton author, composer and performer, with a passion for progressive music, the rock of the seventies, extreme music, and last but not least, his culture, his region and his second mother tongue: Breton. Brieg writes, composes and sings his texts in Breton, and this he Culture Hub - Eruca EP (Vinyl) from the heart.
Dark and melancholy, like the Breton gwerz, those poems carried by the oral tradition. Such tunes and texts have, across the centuries, built, layer by layer, the vast repertoire of traditional Breton songs. This is the project of one man, but also that of a trio.
These three believes in what they do. They have an unwavering faith in what makes Brieg's music a truly unique and unclassifiable project: progressive rock, raging, highly melodic, yet raw and concrete.
This uniqueness is confirmed once more by the third album "Valgori" presently in the making. Darker, rawer and colder than the former, the new album is custom-made for live performance, it will also be more modern and close the folk period that started back in The release is planned forand the Breton trio is preparing once again to scour the venues and scenes of France and of Europe at large.
Taking their time to create their unique and highly personal fifth full-length album, it has been 7 years since Adagio's last studio release Archangels in Black. With LIFE, Adagio pushes the experience past just music, plunging the listener into a powerful introspective experience. What if we could visit each of these emotions like exhibits in a museum? Stylistically, LIFE brings Adagio back to their progressive roots while expanding their musical boundaries. From the heavy "Subrahmanya" which is available as the first single now, and which combines traditional Eastern Ethnic and Djent influences, to the dark and mesmerizing "I'll Possess You," LIFE is an epic canvas of atmospheres which will take the listener back to the ethereal places they had once visited but never managed to find again.
This album features several lineup changes for Adagio. It also brings us the new addition violinist Mayline, adding new ethnic textures and dimensions to the band's sound. LIFE will be released worldwide in early spring through Zeta Nemesis, funded through a highly successful crowdfunding campaign.
This organic grassroots process has yielded the purest results and we are confident that this release will be heralded as the band's finest effort yet. LIFE will be released in Spring ; pre-order it here. The first single "Subrahmanya" is available for streaming now officially via the band's Facebook page.
