Another busy Summer comes to a close and I notice that once again I have been remiss in keeping up with the blog!
So, first: a quick Spring recap
May saw the release of Part II of the Edgar Allan Poe Duology with THE NARRATIVE OF ARTHUR GORDON PYM. Writing-wise and production-wise this saw a leap forward as well as 'shorter', more complex arrangements than THE EYE OF FIRE AND FEAR. It also saw the debut of new collaborators CLAIRE BROCK on drums and KURT BORST on vocals.
There was little time to rest, however, as I was busy getting the next concept in place, which I can talk about in more detail in the coming posts!
Where that leaves us now is the introduction to the next AF mega-work: the 4-part FOUNDATION TETRALOGY, based on the seminal SciFi trilogy by Isaac Asimov.
October will see the first release in the FOUNDATION series. It is titled GALACTIC ENTROPY and is an 18-minute long, single piece.
A LOT of effort went into GALACTIC ENTROPY, from the initial concept to the final mix, and it is probably the most conceptual piece I have ever completed.
Over the next few blog posts I will break down my approach to the tetralogy as a whole and specifically for GALACTIC ENTROPY.
