If everything is going properly, I suppose that my new album will be completely finished for May or June. The most of the compositions are recorded, mixed and mastered, but I must write and record two or three additional track to finish with all it. I'm beginning this last part of the work the next month. Meanwhile you can hear some excerpts from the finished pieces here:
The album will be a mix of Neo-Classicism, Minimalism and Avant-Garde. Some pieces are soft and melodic, but other tracks are hard and experimental, connecting with the noise and industrial music. I've been experimenting with the connection between some extremes in the music, as the extreme pianissimo or fortissimo sounds, extreme low or high tones, etc. The most of the album is recorded with violin, cello, harp, flute or other conventional acoustic instruments, but in some ocassions these instruments are prepared (altered their sounds with implements) or an unusual instrumentation appears (giant tam-tam, bass waterphone, musical glasses, tape loops, etc.).
The album will last 50-60 minutes and it will have 12-14 tracks. It will contain the string quartet «Tunguska» (released as EP in September of 2009), but in a new mix, as well as a new acoustic version of the piece «After All These Years...». The rest of the tracks are new. No cover pieces, no collaborations.
Some titles: «The Monster», «Minuet For Planet, Asteroids and Comet», «12 Megatons», «Yersinia XIV», «Shinigami's Dreams»... The album will be definitely called «No More Faith». Personal motives...
