(PRWEB) July 17, 2003
Recorded at Cutting Edge Studios, Gold Coast, Australia- the home of didgeridoos. The first release for Hemp Music Productions (http://www.hempmusic.com) is truly unique.
Relaxing sounds from the harp, flute, guitar and angelic voices complement the ancient drone of the didgeridoo. This professionally recorded CD has one difference- its based around the hemp plant.
Known for its use in clothing (textiles), paper, cosmetics, fuel, medicine and even food- we are now shown another use for this amazing plant- an alternative to petrochemical plastics!
The hemp plastic CD-Tray is a commercial first. The hemp stone didgeridoo is made from a unique material developed in Europe. Harder than stone (hemp stone) is mouldable and 100% biodegradeable as it contains no resins, glues or anything else apart from hemp and water!
The CD, launched in Australia is available for world-wide distribution. This hemp plastic CD will be produced as a limited edition and is expected to sell-out fast.

10% of the profits from this CD are to be donated to good causes with the remainder supporting the hemp (plastic) industry.
HEMP PLASTIC CD TRAYS - CREDIT CARDS - BOTTLES (COSMETIC CONTAINERS) NOW BEING OFFERED FROM 'GREEN' HEMP PLASTIC!
WorldÂs first Hemp Plastic CD Project!
One possible answer to the so-called war on Iraq?
Today Hemp Music Productions (http://www.hempmusic.com) announced the completed recording of their first ÂHemp Music ProjectÂ
A world first for three reasons:
Â Uses musical instruments made from 100% hemp
Â CD Tray made from novel Hemp Plastic
Â CD Inserts made from hemp paper
Recorded at Cutting Edge Studios, Gold Coast, Australia- the home of didgeridoos. The first release for Hemp Music Productions is truly unique.
One answer to the so-called war on Iraq is to supply alternatives to the petrochemical usage. Hemp has been cultivated worldwide for centuries and is shown here in its modern, legal form as an alternative to petrochemicals used in plastics.
1) Each track features a musical instrument made from 100% hemp stone! No glues, no resins, just water and a patented technique devised in Austria after seven years of R&D. Using a world-breaking technology this material is moulded to form, for example a traditional didgeridoo shape. Supported by local indigenous AustralianÂs who report that the trade in rainforest wood didgeridoos is higher than the amount of musicians. Instead of supplying rainforest wood that is rapidly diminishing, 100% renewable crops such as hemp can supply all the qualities that wood offers and can be painted by indigenous artists to look just the same. The acoustic properties of this material are superior to most timber options. Other products that have been made from this material include drums, speaker cabinets, guitars; drum rings, chairs, tables, bowls and more!
2) The CD tray is made from a totally different technique and is currently manufactured in Japan using Japanese grown hemp fibres. A world first- Hemp Music Productions are hoping other music producers will be interested in representing their awareness of green matters.
3) The CD inserts use hemp paper supplied by Living Tree Paper Company- another use of hemp. Hemp can produce 4 times the amount of pulp for paper than can be produced from trees grown on the same acreage of land. Hemp takes 90 days to grow- trees take at least 20 years.
HempÂs other uses include as a fuel (yes, diesel engines can run on 100% hemp oil); food (truly nutritious hemp food such as hemp milk ice-cream and hemp snack bars are available throughout the world); fibre (well known for its strength; hemp is now blended with silk; latex and wool using modern methods); medicinal (UK company and Government backed GW Pharmaceuticals are looking to launch cannabis medicinal products in the near future); body-care products (Dr BronnerÂs, Body Shop etc.)
Not only is this CD about hemp, but good music. The music is stand-alone and designed to be relaxing and healing. Based around the harp, flute and didgeridoo with angelic voices, unique acoustic guitar and true rainforest sounds this CD is expected to be a hit in the home, in therapy centres and anywhere a relaxing atmosphere is required.
