The Great Church Trilogy

Yesterday I’ve finished the mixes of the Great Church recordings.
The album is entitled “The Great Church Trilogy”, and will be the second release on my newly established Deserted Island Music.
Coming week Wouter Bessels will do the mastering of the tracks.
The artwork might be adjusted slightly within the coming days.

The album is ready for pre-ordering from www.desertedislandmusic.nl and http://www.exhibitionofdreams.com/ and expected shipping time is September 30th; October 3rd at latest.
The official release is October 1st and the album will be presented at Electronic Circus (October 1st), E-Live (October 15th) and the Bookmarket at the Great Church of Haarlem (November 12th). See www.desertedislandmusic.nl for informations and links.
Running time is around 78 minutes and gives – in my opinion – a perfect overview of the past editions of my performances at the Grote- of St.Bavokerk / Great Church of Haarlem (2007-2010). Tracktitles and soundclips will follow within about a week.

Grote of St.Bavokerk / Great Church of Haarlem - album release

Instead of another "traditional" performance at the Grote of St.Bavokerk / Great Church of Haarlem, there will be an album release (title yet to be confirmed) containing a selection of live tracks from my Great Church Trilogy.
The album is the second release on my new Deserted Island Music label.

In the meanwhile all tracks have been selected and most of the music has been mixed and should be ready for mastering before the end of the month!

The cd will be presented at the following events:
- Electronic Circus Festival in G├╝tersloh, Germany (October 1st. Tickets: http://www.electronic-circus.net/)
- E-Live Festival in Oirschot, Netherlands (October 15th. Tickets: http://e-live.groove.nl/)
- Bookmarket at the Grote- of St.Bavokerk*, Haarlem, Netherlands (November 12th. Entrance free. Information: http://www.kollektorsitem.nl/)

On these days I will also be present with a stall selling my other music.
* Note that I will not do a performance at the Great Church this year! This edition you can enjoy - of course beside huge amounts of books - music from the Haarlems Amateur Symfonie Orkest.

The upcoming album's artwork and audio-files will follow within the coming weeks!
I will keep you posted about any progress and updates here, my websites (http://www.desertedislandmusic.nl/ and http://www.exhibitionofdreams.com/) and social media.

Session with Synth.nl at Apollo Studio

Yesterday I visited the Apollo Studio of Synth.nl (Michel van Osenbruggen).
Recently Michel and I already recorded some musical ideas, and on my latest cd, "i-Dentity", there could also be heard some of Michel's skills!
We made maximum use of the day, and globally recorded and worked out some (in my opinion) very satisfying tracks.
As Michel and I have to work on our upcoming solo album releases the coming time, there will be not much time to work a lot on our collaboration until October, but indeed I will keep you posted about the progress of this and another project we are both working on.
We should have some concrete results for you somewhere in 2012 - of course if we are both happy with the final results.
The sessions we had so far were very inspiring and until now it seems we more or less share the same ideas and thoughts about our creations so far!

The coming time I have planned at least one other interesting collaboration, but more details will follow later!
