More news from Annexia
Hi there music lovers. There is, as usual, a lot in the making and plenty of new stuff to look forward to.
Yes, the Interzone Webshop is taking of. Most of the old releases are available there for good quality streaming as well as download. Even the free release n3Xtensions is there, complete with cover art and all. As I said before, this is the place where all new material will be released, long before they hit the big stores like iTunes, Amazon.
The compilation is ready to be released, everything is ready and the tracklist is as follows:
…plus some extra bonus material. All I am waiting for now is the record cover. And for the first time I will not be doing it. It will be done by Project Klangwelt, a wonderful, creative and really cool graphic designer. Go and check her work out. I am really looking forward to what she will bring.
The music is recorded and ready – six tracks in total. The tone and feel is very distorted, dark and dissonant. The Deserts project differs a bit from the other ones in that that I am planning to include both written words and moving images. There is still a lot to be done on those areas, but I will keep you all updated.
Quite a few people have said that my music in many ways could and/or should be referred to as steampunk. That made me ponder on how you translate images of old machinery and any other Verne/Wells imagery into sounds. And what part of my sounds represent those images. But then I listened through some of the stuff I have made, and realized that i do use quite a bit of machinery in my tracks. Old tracks as In the Flesh and Alessa from the Desires release have it. Also many of the tracks on n3Xt and n3Xtensions are in some subconscious way inspired by both steam and punk.
However, there will be much more talked on the topic of steampunk in the future. In the meantime, please share your thoughts on what you think Steampunk is.
