In The Cyclops Eye working on some final touches on “Lost”.
-> Note the MicroKorg on the right: I’m replacing its wood panels by custom ones. There’s also my (heavy!) Revox G36 tube tape player/recorder on the left, won by my grandfather (who gave me it 2 years before his death) at a Canadian radio contest in 1967. I used it a lot for Version 1 of “Lost” and all my pre-Ekhmnesya projects as well as my two first remixes for Dismantled and Collide.
I’ve been spending my whole days buried deep in The Cyclops Eye to complete in-progress stuff; I’d like to get my current tracks quickly out of the ground before moving on.
- I have finally finished version 2 of my song “Lost”, that I wrote 2 years ago (archive files of version 1 dates back to August 28th, 2012!). I’ve always been working on a new version since then. It’s much longer, more atmospheric and rough.
- My cover of Controlled Collapse’s “Change The World” is still in progress. Vocals are done, I just need to add some extra background vox to give it some depth. The Polish band gave me their full authorization to turn the remix I did for them in June 2013 into a cover and were actually honored about that.
- Another (untitled yet) track is in progress too. I still need to write lyrics for this one.
A lot of other tracks remain undone in my hard drives as well, but I think only these three are really worth the effort to be completed.
I’ll also be writing and recording a song with a friend of mine shortly (she sings reeeeaaaally well). It won’t sound as industrial and aggressive as my personal songs (I want to make something accessible), but it’s surely gonna have some Ekhmnesya influences. I’d like to work with musicians this time (I got tons of friendsicians here!) but nothing’s done yet. More information soon.
My Android Lust Goodies have arrived!
Finally received my (signed!) Android Lust’s “The Dividing” 10th Anniversary Vinyl Edition with some really cool stuff.
Thank you very much Shikhee, I love the postcard, too. ;)
New toy in The Cyclops Eye! I’ve just bought a classic MicroKorg today on a French advertisement website. The guy who was selling it has a very cool home-studio with some amazing vintage instruments (MS20, old organ, tape-reverb machine…).
The synth works perfectly but will be used in my next projects though; I won’t be using it in my current songs. Already diggin’ it!
