Demo of track 1 from my forthcoming album 'Brighter Days'.

Forever searching for stillness, but the outside world has other ideas...


===

This has been a heck of a long time coming. I wrote the piano part in this track sometime around 1999, as part of an angsty, doomy metal album that was going to be called Dark Days. I never quite got my act together enough to record it (although I have demos of four of the ten Dark Days tracks and quite a bit of the recording was done), and when I finally came to revive the project I found that I'd moved on as a person and a musician and couldn't summon the requisite teen angst any more.

So here's today's version of the track. The core is the same but there's a lot that's new as well. I hope you like it!

Well, this has me wanting to hear the rest of the album, for sure. I'm thinking this is sort of an overture of the theme and sound of the album. Brighter Days, indeed. I hear lots of hope and sincerity in this.

You say "demo" … are changes being considered? Will the final tracks be offered as a purchase in the future?

This song has so much going that it sounds as though an album in itself. Pretty cool the history in it. It's really good and I like it!

@becwil: Thanks!

With regard to that tricky word 'demo', I do plan to do a full album release when the whole thing is done, most likely through Bandcamp, and with some bonus material. I've said 'demo' because it gives me a bit of wiggle room to fix lingering problems with the mix after the fact, and because when the whole album is complete I'll be doing a mastering step to make sure everything flows smoothly from track to track as well.

After my experience with Lies To Children I'll be using the 'name your price' feature, so people can download it for free if they like or offer some money if they're feeling generous. The full album version of Lies was unquestionably a superior experience in my mind (I fixed a bunch of problems but more importantly added transitions between tracks so that the whole thing flowed from start to end), but many people said they didn't want to spend $5 on an album when they'd already heard the individual tracks for free on iComp. I'm not looking to get rich here so this time around I'd rather share the 'best' version with anyone who wants it.

@Aamp: Thanks! Someone else commented that it ends in a very different place to where it started, and to an extent that's kind of my thing - I like music that takes the listener on a journey. Not everything I do is like that, but it's a common theme.

With regard to the history, I'll be including some more bits and pieces of back story with the subsequent tracks, so stay tuned. smiley

I figured as much, eido, that you'd be offering the album as a finished package later, while these iC uploads are demos, subject to possible edits. I'll wait for the album … with all of your production blessing upon it. I do not mind paying for it either.
