This summer, downtempo artist Glideascope will play a series of chill-out live sets. This will culminate in a huge party at Pacha, celebrating 10 years of publishing in Ibiza for DJ Magazine, the leading journal for dance music followers.

DJ Magazine's owner, Charles Ward, met Glideascope at the Winter Music Conference in Miami earlier in 2005. After hearing previews of the forthcoming album, "Audio Cinematography," discussions took place on the possibility of Glideascope making an appearance in Ibiza: the birthplace of chill-out music.

Charles Ward declared that "Glideascope's music is the perfect way to kick-start our celebrations at Pacha on the Terrace, with an innovative downtempo set – incorporating percussion, orchestral strings and emotive vocals. With a line-up that includes Lenny Ibizarre, Chris Coco and DJ Mazzy, this is an event not to be missed."

Glideascope revealed, "The music I create is representative of my musical heritage and extensive travels across the globe - an experimental journey fusing classical orchestration, dub, the roots of hip hop, African and Indian folk music with a composite of acoustic and electronic elements."

"Ibiza is the ideal setting to showcase my new material," Glideascope explained. "I think in terms of moving images when I'm composing, creating a canvas that people can fill with their own pictures and emotions - taking listeners on an interactive journey."

With listeners looking to classify new music by genre, these pieces, taking inspiration from trip hop, downtempo, world, classical and reggae will be difficult to pigeon-hole. However to Glideascope, "It is simply music that breaks down the barriers. With the world becoming smaller, isn't it natural to be influenced by everything you hear?"

Glideascope live, at Pacha on the Terrace, Ibiza Town, Ibiza - Saturday Aug. 13, 2005, from midnight.

Music from this event will be available on Glideascope's forthcoming debut album, "Audio Cinematography" due for release autumn 2005.
