"Archives" special and "Fears" update

As you might already know, my new studio album "Fears" is going to be released on October 29th.
Last week the audio masters and the artwork have been sent to the factory, so if everything's fine the final product should be available well before the release date.
October 1st, I am present with a stall at the Electronic Circus Festival in Detmold. The artwork of "Fears" will be revealed on this day.
Again, don't forget to pre-order "Fears", which includes a limited and numbered bonus disc.

But first, there is an upcoming focus on my "Archives" series. Twice a year another episode is added to "Archives 4" is scheduled for October 7th, and contains recordings from the period 1999-2000.
Norbert Zumdiek pays attention to the entire series so far, during his radio show, on Friday, September 30th,  in between 20.00 - 01.00 CET.
The special covers a 7 tracks selection (a whopping 105 minutes!) from all four released episodes of "Archives". This also includes the world premiere of some of the tracks from "Archives 4", one week before the actual release date.

So be sure to tune in at Underground Äxpärten or Radio Sunrise.

John Valk hosts the other half of the show, playing music by Cosmic Hoffman, Sequentia Legenda, Perceptual Defence, and many more. Recommended!

Rehearsing with My Breath My Music

As you could have read in a previous post, I will be joining "My Breath My Music In Concert", at
Cultuurpodium Boerderij in Zoetermeer, October 9th.

Yesterday we (me with three members of My Breath My Music) did a rehearsing session for a brand new 15 minutes piece I composed for this occassion. It was good to be back at Rijndam Revalidatiecentrum in Rotterdam.

Because the largest part of the track will be filled with improvisation, we put the focus on selecting lead sounds on the Magic Flute. Sounds with which Korneel and Christian felt comfortable while playing their parts. We played through the music piece a couple of times, and set a global structure.

Glenn took care of the drums and percussion. Born without hands it is unbelievable to witness him controlling the drums.
Each time again, it is a real treat to see and hear all these musician's passion and feeling for the music.
Coming time the drum pads will be programmed with the fitting sounds. Although there still is enough room for improvisation, Glenn's output has to be more structured, because of the development of the track.

Then, I will also participate during the 'overture' on the day of the event. Together with organiser and My Breath My Music chairman Ruud van der Wel we worked out my contribution on this.

There are still tickets left, so spread the word, consider joining us, and bring all your family and friends, on October 9th!
