The kid stays in the picture…

Hi,

I feel like I have been neglecting you.

It goes like this.

There is a parallel world that I live in. A world that involves getting things done for other people relative to schedules. This is the world of the music industry I don’t really care for. But, its a necessity and comes with the job.

What I am trying to say is that, I don’t get to do the things that i really love. Well thats not completely true. I’ll re-phrase that. I don’t get to do the things I really love doing, at my own pace.

Ultimately, I’ve been busy. Yippee for sorry old me. But busy is good though, I hear you say. Yes, busy is good. Busy can be fun in the world of creativity. This busy stuff has meant that I have completed a follow up to The Difference Engine. The new album is entitled ‘Timelines.” This is part 2 in a series of three. A more elaborate continuation of what i was trying to say in the last. It’s pretty vocal, and it’s pretty much an album about the end of the world in a “War of the Worlds” meets “Desperate Housewives,” kind of way. It has been fun making. It has been fun working with a stack of people. A stack of people that continuously make me feel like I am just winging it, as usual. They put me to shame.

The album has been mixed by Richard X’s right hand man, Peter Hoffman.

I always wanted this to be the case. I wanted to be the artist with the vision and let someone else tune the canvas. This has been a real ear opener for me.

On top of this, I have been working Manchester band, The Whip. This is still work in progress. More info on this soon.

And, I have finished a collaboration with Shinichi Osawa aka Mondo Grosso.

This has been wonderful, and the song will be featured on Shinichi’s new album.

That’s all for now. As usual, it’s all about me. But hey, ain’t that what this here is all about.
