The premise for Quindi Records is simple – to represent music with a universality at its core.
Without adhering to specific genre tropes, the releases are intended to have a meaning and
purpose in all kinds of situations – a social soundtrack as much as a stimulating experience,
feeding emotions and the psyche with a sentimental palette of sounds. Lovers’ music, loners’
music, music for friends and family alike.
Woo makes for a perfect choice to meet this loose concept head-on – the music of Clive and
Mark Ives straddles disparate worlds and finds its own peculiar balance. On one hand it’s

90s. It’s only in recent years their sublime work has enjoyed a wider audience through an
extensive run of reissues.

of synth tones cascading in elegant unison. The name refers to Arcturus, the fourth brighteststar in the night sky. As Woo themselves explain, “The Arcturian Corridor is said to be a channel
of light that brings unconditional love and wisdom from Arcturus to Earth.”

Planets”, a standout piece from their 1990 album ?Into The Heart of Love? . The fragile subtlety of
the original has been embellished here with rich new passag
