Upcoming Album (+previews)! Also, New track: Time Without!

Previews are up! Download them at my Mediafire, under the Demos section. I've got four at the moment, though I'll add on to the file as I make progress. I didn't post individual previews, but the set is under four megabytes, so it shouldn't be a problem. Of course, be aware that the tracks may still change between now and release.

0:00-0:30 - Breathless. Some of you might have heard this one before. This one was a lot of fun to make and is intended to be fun to listen to.

0:31-1:16 - Recess. This is literally a never-before-shared piece of music, so it's especially subject to change. This preview is longer than the others, as it's a bit of a slower track.

1:17-1:46 - Signwave. I decided to include on the album too. It's been released in full already, but I decided I'd add it as a preview for completeness.

1:47-2:18 - The fourth preview is one that some of you will love, and one some of you will hate.

Of course, this isn't your typical album, based on the variety between even these previews alone. I'm going for variety rather than unity between each track. The album does have a theme, but what it is, I won't say (yet?).

So I've decided I'll put together an album this summer.

Why? It'll be fun!

Most of my time spent on music over the past few months has gone towards tracks which have ended up on this album, hence my inactivity in that time. This summer, I'll still be about as inactive (though that doesn't mean you won't hear any new full tracks until the album).

Very soon, I'll be posting previews of the individual album tracks as I finish them (I'll go for one every few weeks), plus a file of the previews as a set for those who don't want to download them all individually. They won't quite be what you'll expect - I'm branching out a bit with these tracks. It's going to be more of a "music" album than a "trance" or maybe even "EDM" album.

Want to help? Just let me know - I'm open to putting collabs on, as long as I'm proud of what comes out. Drop me a line and we'll work something out.

Keep checking by!

It's been a long time coming, but here it is at last. Download Time Without at my Mediafire.

A bit of background: I don't remember when I started working on this track. My oldest render I still have was made on May 22nd, 2009, so I do know it's been more than a year since I started working on this track. Just for fun, I put that version up under "Experiments, Misc." at my Mediafire. Interestingly, the track I uploaded was rendered exactly a year later.

This track was also intended to be an effort at signing something, just because of the amount of attention I paid to character and energy throughout production. When I was working on it, I sent it to so many people for advice that it's possible that there will be more people reading this post who will recognize it than people who won't.

Throughout production, though, I never could find a good lead sound or a good melody for the track, so it never went anywhere and I never tried to do anything with it. But, some time later, I didn't want the track to collect any more dust, so I polished it up a bit and sent it to Anjunabeats for kicks. Today, it's been two weeks without any response, so up it goes!

The track is quiet to avoid clipping, so turn the volume up! Someday, I'll master my music, I promise.

Enjoy.

Announcement tomorrow.
