ELEMENTIA 200000 PLAYS WORLDWIDE

ELEMENTIA – 200000 PLAYS

07th July 2017, Lisbon – Portugal

One year and a half ago the first singles “Gates of Adastria”, “Elysian Fields”, “Plains of Samsara” and “Eye of the Winter Queen” from my Elementia I public album had been released. Today the same album has hit the mark of a total sum of two hundred thousand (200000) individual streaming track plays in a combined sum from my Soundcloud, Youtube, Apple Music, Deezer and Spotify pages.

If we combine the previous numbers with EpicMusicVN Youtube channel where the songs “Gates of Adastria” and “Elysian Fields” have been featured as one of the best songs during the months of May and June of 2016 alongside with other many great artists we can see a total plays of nearly five hundred thousand (500000).

Elementia I is still growing strong each day reaching new fans and listeners worldwide and thousands of continuous plays still happen every month at a rate of between 2000 and 4000 individual streaming plays with a retention rate of 78% of male and female gender audience and a medium playtime of seventy percent (70%) which represents three minutes and fifty nine seconds (3:59), as a reference the longest track of Elementia is five minutes and sixteen seconds (5:16) and the medium playtime of tracks is three minutes and fifty three seconds (3:53). For the public audience the favorite songs and most played have been in the following order “Elysian Fields”, “Gates of Adastria”, “Plains of Samsara”, “Eye of the Winter Queen”, “Throne of Elementia” and “Elementia”.

So I have to say even though this might seem small numbers to some artists out there, for me as a composer which career is involved solely in original composed material without the help or involvement of any major or independent label is a personal achievement and I would like to thank to all of you out there being fans, friends, industry professionals, business partners and EpicMusicVN who have supported me in this Elementia I promotional campaigns since the early days of 2015.

Furthermore as a personal message to the fans the Elementia journey and saga keeps going forward and sailing to a new harbor with different mindset objectives and a stronger epic orchestral / choral signature sound. The follow up album Elementia II is already being composed by me and is currently being planned with new talented / hired guest vocalists in vocal auditions for a both combined scheduled public and industry release in the year of 2018.

To end up this press release I would like to sincerely and personally thank you all from my soul and heart for which nothing of this could had been done without YOU the fans and listeners out there. As an additional thank you in the upcoming weeks I will be giving away twenty (20) digital copies of Elementia I album along with a signed poster in a giveaway contest to be announced at a later date next month.

Today I am more than excited and proud to have released Elementia I into the world, a first step toward what is to be a greater journey ahead. As some of you might know for the last couple of months a lot of energy, time, investment and personal sacrifices have been poured into making this concept album a reality which I personally define as a step stone for what is to come in the upcoming future as a composer and as a musician.

During the time of Elementia I presales we have seen it rise and mark an amazing rank 79 best seller on Classical style and top 2000 in overall musical sales at Amazon for 36 hours in a row with the single “Gates of Adastria” which for a first album was an achievement by itself.

Today the full album is now officially available to buy or acessible to those who have previously pre-ordered it on major digital and retail stores of Amazon and iTunes and on streaming services such as Spotify and iMusic on the following links:

Amazon (US): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EYR067Q
