I can’t believe that it is nearly May!
I’ve been very busy recently, and so I have neglected the news on this website somewhat. I hope this won’t become a trend seen as things look to become even busier in the coming months…
It is just after 9pm and I am relaxing with Courage The Cowardly Dog. I forgot how deliciously dark this cartoon is. There’s a fox trying to make granny stew out of Muriel. I know Courage will save the day.
Recently I have mastered three projects for artists with whom I’ve worked before. As soon as they let me know their release schedules, I can announce it on my site and put them in the discography which, let’s face it, doesn’t seem to have been updated for a while. That is simply because a lot of projects I have been involved with are still awaiting releases.
I’m starting to particularly enjoy mastering. I think it has a lot to do with the speed of it, and knowing that the artist is trusting the mastering engineer to put a final sonic “signature” on a product. It’s quite a responsibility, but a rewarding one when the artist’s thumbs are up!
The next single/EP release will be “Storm Petrel”, which is taken from the elusive Dorothea’s Boat (a release date for which will be announced at some point, I promise). I am working on some material for the B-side, and I’m also thinking of revisiting one or two pieces from Akuma/Tenshi that might benefit from being rejuvenated. It looks like it will be another vinyl/digital hybrid release, and I’ll let you know as soon as I have figured out a release schedule.
I wish I had more to report right now, but I find myself in a transitional period whereby a lot is going on, but very little is complete. There are many production projects and collaborations on the horizon, and I am working to organise some more shows in the UK over the summer. As soon as everything falls into place, you’ll be the first to hear about it on here or via the newsletter.
Oh, just so you know. Courage managed to save Muriel at the last minute, whilst inadvertently turning that fox into fox stew.
As I said before. Deliciously dark.
