I hope the previous year is behind you, the coming year straight ahead and that you are where you are.
This (probably overdue) update is to let you know about things past, current & upcoming. Latest news is obviously my release "Interwoven Sonic Tapestry" which is available digitally since December 31st. You may stream parts of it, and there is a bonus track in store for you if you opt to purchase the album.
In 2015 the first mandate is to release more stuff, I already have 4-5 albums complete and/or nearing completion sitting on the shelves for quite some time. I've decided to go the self-release route all the way, probably mostly digital. Bless all the gorgeous labels I've collaborated with, it's too much of a hassle for this fella. My focus is on creating the material, it's what I like doing and intend on doing more and more of. Looking for a home for the material pains me much too much compared to just letting it go where it may by putting it out there myself. However when collaborating (3 collabs in progress at the moment) I will leave the option with the collaborator to look for a label if they so desire.
Each release will be priced at 6$, which is the average price of a pint in my fair city, skipping a pint to purchase music you like doesn't seem unreasonable. Pints will most likely still be available after you purchase the album. With every new release, the preceding ones will drop 1$ in price tag and anything over 2 yrs old in the catalog will be set to pay what you can under the creative commons BY / share alike license. ALL UPCOMING RELEASES WILL INCLUDE BONUS MATERIAL FOR THOSE WHO OPT TO BUY ME A PINT (PURCHASE THE ALBUM, THAT IS.)
I will also play more gigs, mostly here in Montreal. Synth stuff, guitar stuff and probably just stuff too. Not putting much stock in it, but it's fun to get out there and play. See you out there.
VERY MUCH BACKWARDS:
I was fairly inactive 'publicly' in 2014 for reasons that need not be discussed, yet the few things that did go public were all satisfying for different reasons. Let's recap...
Faures - Continental Drift
Le B'Oo-Ray - V
There is much to be said about the title V and what it entails / how it relates to the material, but we'll keep that for some evening where we have a pint together you and I.
Variations on not too much really
