Originally released in 2005, Chris Lastovicka’s classical album Fortune Has Turned now has a new and improved version coming out in April via Ahari Press.  The compositions for piano, strings, horn, and voice offer listeners a stark, emotional journey into the human psyche.

Says Lastovicka of the quest to remix and remaster,

“When I was thinking about who I’d like to remix my album, I thought about my favorite album, Massive Attack’s ‘Blue Lines.’  I wondered if I would be able to even get Jeremy Allom, who mixed that album. I did, and it has been an incredible experience working with him and getting to know him.

When I looked for a mastering engineer, I wanted to get someone who would understand the sonic imperfections of the recordings and how I felt they mirrored the rough experience of seeking the Self. I chose iconic mastering engineer Emily Lazar because of her early background in creative writing, and her drive to tell the story of an album through her mastering work.”
