“Fairytales and Fantasy” is a collaboration between Nic Paton and John Bartmann, for unique Munich-based production library DNA Musik (and associated visually rich Minds and Music).

Rooted in fantasy, folklore and nature, this collection ranges from regal fanfare to delicate siren song, from fierce mythical conflict to solemn ritual, and from epic adventure to children’s lullaby.

The connections between big screen orchestration and folky acoustica has been made with freshness and verve, using a wide array of live instrumentation.

German architect/painter Matthias Brandner was specially commissioned by DNA for the verdantly evocative artwork.

The full set of mixes are available for media use from DNA as MAM028 Fairytales & Fantasy, as well as in South Africa via Mama Dance Music Library.
