More information: Multi-instrumentalist, producer and composer Robert Reed (Magenta/Kompendium), releases a unique new instrumental album called 'Sanctuary', produced, mixed and engineered by Robert Reed, who is joined by legendary Tubular Bells producers Tom Newman (as co-producer) and Simon Heyworth, who mastered the album.
Rob Reed was inspired to become a musician and composer at the age of seven after discovering Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells. So inspired was he by the album, that he learned to play not just one, but all the instruments featured on the album. Sanctuary is the fruition of a decision that Rob made in January 2013 to utilize his abilities as a multi-instrumentalist and create an album in the style of Tubular Bells; he recalls: “The next four weeks were a blur as the music just came out. It turned out to be the most enjoyable album I’ve made. I wanted to play all the instruments, and for all of them to be real; no synthesized or sampled instruments, just the real thing.”
