I suppose I should apologize for the severe lack of updates lately... one a month really isn't as much as I should be writing, I feel. the reason for that is probably because there's been a lot of stuff going on with me lately, mostly classwork, but rest assured that I am working on a ton of music-related stuff; it just won't come to fruition for a while, I suppose. here's a quick rundown:
- I have not worked on Ectype in a long time, but it is actually nearing completion; it just needs bass recorded and mixing/mastering.
- vocals and half of the guitar for the re-recorded edition of World are finished. I'm working on developing a more polished guitar tone via effects added during mixing instead of during recording, which should shape up to be interesting. I probably already mentioned that I have a new, more professional-sounding drum machine; it's pretty cool.
- I still haven't been able to press Music for Battery though I'll probably be able to over Thanksgiving weekend, once I get access to the tape recorder I've been using. once that does finally come out, I'm going to offer a discount price for the tape trilogy (although it will still be available on CD-R).
- songwriting for the new album is also cranking along. I'm going to try to give myself more time for writing this time instead of practically improvising songs as I record them (something both Antimonument and Cleanse could have done without). it's probably going to be shorter too; I've realized that the ambient segueing wasn't good for overall flow and interest.
