Zerkalo shipping frenzy
by on September 25, 2008 in Recent Activity

Zerkalo is here, and listeners seem interested. We’ve seen a flurry of activity. As soon as I returned from Earthdance I found packs of Zerkalo artwork awaiting from St. Petersburg, Russia. The actual CDs arrived on Thursday September 18, so we announced its availability on Friday as my wife Dixie and I began assembling packages. By Sunday we had almost 200 orders, and we only managed to get caught up this evening (Wednesday.) We’ve been buried in shipments, and Dixie stayed up most of two nights packing envelopes and boxes.

Because of the strong response, it’s possible that I might be able to get a few more copies from Russia. Here in Mountain View, we’re 2/3 sold out. The pressing is still limited to 1000, but we may have enough demand from local fans that we can request additional disks shipped to us. That will be more affordable for North Americans than ordering copies from Russia. After remaining copies sell, Zerkalo will revert to a download-only release.

Now that we’re caught up on Zerkalo orders, I’m able to update the website as you see here, and next I hope to burn some CDRs of the new release to send to radio and press, since there aren’t enough originals to give away. My apologies to the radio folks who get only CDR copies (I noticed some of you have already ordered originals.)

I admit I am running behind on a bunch of outside work, including several remix requests, and sound design for the presets on a new synth. Immediate deadlines include surround mixes for a corporate client, and ongoing weekly lectures for my audio mastering class at Cogswell College, interspersed by occasional disruptions of sleep, cooking, and the demands of harvest during winemaking season – among my favorite forms of relaxation. More as it happens. Thanks for listening! – RR

    I received my copy early this week (ordered from Russia some time ago) and I love it. I admit to more of a fondness towards your more mysterious and nebulous works and this really hit the spot. It’s rather beautiful. Thank you for this (and Faryus too of course).

    P.S. I’m looking forward to those concert downloads when and if you can get around to it,.

    Received my copy yesterday, the artwork is excellent (as usual), and the music sounds so entrancing, just love it. Thanks a lot Robert and Faryus.

    Mine arrived last week Thursday. First impressions are quite good and I love the packaging, although I’ll probably put the CD in a proper case so it doesn’t get scratched. Like the previous reviewer, I too tend to drift more towards your atmospheric work, and I really like this one. Early favorite is part 6, but the whole thing is sublime!
