Recording at New Alliance Studios today. They have a lot of nice toys.
Been a bit of a slow year, music-wise. Recharging the battery.
While archiving some stuff, came across this, fooled around with it, and thought it made an interesting instrumental.
I noticed recently that the options for finding this online had dropped down to a single site with lousy 128 kbps audio quality. For a limited time, I’ll make some high quality versions available here. I thought about lopping off the questionable Sugar High remixes that the band never asked for (although we loved the Doc one), but for the sake of completion, I’ll leave them on.
Note that Stars & Garters and Halfworld aren’t included — those are actually for sale online, and we do still receive royalties from them.
Splashdown trivia bonus round: Years later, I re-used the music from We The Living’s “Fudge Ripple” to make “A Charming Spell”.
Here’s an announcement from Kasson, featuring a little collaboration he and I did recently. We updated an old Splashdown demo, prettied it up, got Russell F to play violin, and there you go. I think it’s a lovely bit of cinematic soundtrack atmosphere. Vinyl only, just to be totally hipster.
Hey Splashdown fans, Kasson here from Symbion Project. I wanted to let you all know about a special song that you might be interested in. I’m releasing a 10th anniversary vinyl of my 2003 album “Immortal Game” and I’ve included a bonus song called “Lives of Quiet Desperation” which started off as a Splashdown demo back in the early 2000’s. I dusted it off and Adam von Buhler and I turned it into a really fantastic song. We got the amazing violinist Russell Farhang to play on it as well. You can get this song along with the vinyl release here:http://symbionproject.bandcamp.com/album/immortal-game-10th-anniversary-vinyl
there are only going to be 250 of these total, on 180gram double vinyl, hand numbered and autographed. get yours before they’re gone!
Want to hear me narrate a pretty freaky, kind of disturbing science fiction story on a Hugo-award winning podcast? My bit starts around 22:43.
Hadn’t seen Kasson for many years. Tonight we met up before he leaves to start his new life on the other side of the country. Hard to believe we released our first CD together in 1993.
I just did an interview for this blog about my noise.
