Sorry i’ve been silent on the blog here lately, but that’s because i have been working like a monster on the Bonus Act. I mean BUSTIN’ ass. And the end is starting to appear in sight. I’m not quite there yet, but it’s getting close. I’ve probably only two more songs to compose and very soon i’ll start sending tracks off to Lauren to record.
Which means we need to start discussing the physical box set.
I cannot give a specific date at this point, but late November, early December. Perfect for Christmas presents!
I am pricing the package as we speak. It is a 7 CD set. Each opera takes 2 CDs and the bonus act, a full length album in its own right, takes a CD. So, 7 CDs.
I’m trying to keep the price nice and friendly but make sure the set is reeeeeal perty and special.
After i get the pricing worked out i’ll announce and here’s where it’s important: i will take pre-orders. In fact, i HAVE to take pre orders. As a lowly musician i cannot possibly afford to have a whole bunch of box sets made without pre-orders. I’ll have a couple extra made for any last minute purchases, but in general, if you want one you have GOT to pre-order.
I’ll announce when it’s time.
Also, i’ll say once again: if you already have the operas digitally, do not want the entire CD box set but DO want the Bonus Act (which is likely to be titled The Room Beneath New Albion) the album WILL be available online on Bandcamp and iTunes and Amazon, etc. You will NOT need to buy the box set just to have it.
So, keep tuned for more info. I’ll be picking up blog writing here so this site will be active again.
Now if you’ll pardon me, i have to finish writing Lauren’s big near end of album aria. I mean let’s be honest, we all know near the end of every piece Lauren will sing a big song, and this is her giant wailing epic for the new album. It’s a cross between the band Low and Total Eclipse Of The Heart. Which admittedly, is either utterly dumb or utterly awesome. I’m going for awesome.
