One would think that a genre like New Age music, with its free-flowing nature and few restrictions, would motivate artists to improvisation – but that is not the case. It is a shame since improvisation done right can be magical. One such inspired release is Robert Thies and Damjan Krajacic's third installment in the "Blue Landscapes – Music from a Quieter Place" series, called "Frontiers". The songs' ultra-light structure and meditative atmosphere make the album perfect for dreaming and creative work. It is a visit to the frontiers you don't want to miss. Blue Landscapes III: Frontiers will be released on January 24, 2020. 

Beginning their history as friends and collaborators in 2006, Robert Thies and Damjan Krajacic eventually released a crossover improvisatory album, "Difference", in 2012. "Blue Landscapes II: Discoveries" followed in 2016. Damjan's background spans Jazz and Latin Jazz with a touch of his central European heritage and Classical training. Robert, an internationally renowned classical pianist, began improvising and composing at an early age – influenced by ECM label's "European jazz" artists as well as the pioneering sound of the Windham Hill label. "Blue Landscapes III: Frontiers" was improvised over the span of five days, except for two previously composed works, "Le Musicien" and "Goodbye."
