Tapes and CDs / Album progress

Just a heads-up: The tapes and CD-Rs (you can get them at Bandcamp) now just cost shipping: $3 to the USA, $5 to Canada, and $7 international. There are only a small handful of each.

In other news, I'm still cranking through the rehearsal / revision stage for the new album. I plan on starting recording very soon after the new year. Yes, it's taking a lot longer than usual to get stuff done (if you haven't noticed by my posting frequency), which can partly be attributed to the fact that I want to try as hard as I can to not make it sound like garbage like the last one. It's also partly because it's significantly different in style from my other material and I'm getting used to this new style and doing a lot of revision to get it to sound good.

I'll try to keep updating this blog more often, but no promises.

Progress

Slowly I've come to realize that I've more or less got the writing process all wrong. In the past, I've been writing songs and then trying to force those songs into an album and try to get it to fit what I had in mind, and it never really worked. Instead, this time, I have an overarching idea for the album and I'm breaking it down and figuring out what goes where, and then writing those parts. I think it's gone better so far.

I have four songs, and I'm entering the revision stage about now, refining the flow and arrangements. That'll take another month or two, probably (I've been working very slowly). Maybe if I'm lucky I'll start recording before the end of the year.

Really not dead

I'm still here. I haven't been posting since March since, well, things have been going slowly. I've been focusing on some other things, but that doesn't mean that Deterior is gone—in fact, I'm writing stuff for another album right now. I'm taking a different approach so hopefully things go a bit faster and my writing is better; it seems to be working nicely so far. I have about 35 minutes' worth of songs written, so I'm making good progress, but don't ask when anything new will come out (though it probably won't be until next year).

By the way, it looks like the only links Mediafire took down are the Spire remix single and Music for Nucleonics. They're still both on last.fm (for free) so I won't sweat re-uploading them anytime soon.

Not dead.

Deterior seems to be waking up a little earlier than I had planned.

I won't bore you with details, but I am writing new music. What comes of it remains to be seen.

Mediafire

It has come to my attention that Mediafire has taken all its public links down. It also seems like I can no longer access my account. If you want to download something that was on Mediafire but is no longer available, leave a comment here and I will re-upload to Bandcamp instead.
