Hi everyone. I’m in between projects now, and getting set for some upcoming events. I’ll give links to three concerts in the near future. First, I wanted to offer a link to an interview I did with Chuck Van Zyl in Philadelphia, here: https://youtu.be/5Y2UFcf3jtQ
Furthermore, I’m pondering the significance of letting some titles go out of print (still available in download of course.) In the last year I decided that I would not reprint CD versions of older releases as they sell out. Sold-out titles include Somnium, Humidity, Zerkalo (w/ Faryus) and Outpost (w/ Ian Boddy). Almost-gone include Illumination and Atlas Dei (DVD version) – less than ten copies remain of each. Several other older titles only have 100-200 copies left. So, if you like holding an album in your hands, time is passing by.
In the past, I have reprinted titles as they sold out, more than once for the most popular of them (Electric Ladder, Calling Down the Sky, Trances+Drones for example). Going forward, I plan to limit each printing to 1000, as more people revert to downloads or streaming. My latest CD Filaments only has about 200 left in stock, so I might decide to reprint that, but I haven’t decided. The business of making music is changing fast, and those of us who want to augment the music with an artistic physical package are becoming obsolete. I trust that many of you will understand.
