While seemingly quiet this past summer, we've actually been busy at work on several songs. While our other tunes are awaiting final tracks, John and I concocted our latest composition in the past few weeks, The Chase! You could say this song defines the quintessential Fractal Garden sound, as it's a true hybrid of techno/trance and rock. This was a fun one, a "hot potato" song that was tossed back and forth between us, each toss making the song more and more intense as new tracks were added. The Chase also officially breaks in John's new synthesizer and one of Jay's guitars.

Music/keyboards/bass/drums: John
Guitars/bass/mixing: Jay

Thanks for listening!

Special thanks to our iComp buddy jdwyer05 for his valued comments. And the artwork we've chosen is far too cool to be postage-stamped size, so here's a bigger version of it:

Will this be the first album cover? I really like it. You both play together so well. You are both experts at your solo craft and have developed a SYNERGY when playing together.

ANOTHER GREAT TRACK!
GOOD LUCK TO YOU BOTH!
I HOPE THAT YOU GET SIGNED!

You know how much I love this. This is just awesome!
Some people (including Plant and Page) consider Kashmir the quintessential Zeppelin tune. This may be your Kashmir.

Very cool indeed. Great colaboration. How big were the files you were passing back and forth? Did use an FTP server or just e-mail them? I have not used Logic Express but I imagine the files are quite large.

Great graphics too!

Really nice, sounds a (little) bit like Ozric Tentacles in places. Weird drum sound (in a good way) in the first section. For some reason when listening to it quietly I had the impression that it was a very tiny drum kit about 5 inches across... Hope you're gigging this stuff out because audiences will go wild for it.

Thanks for all the love on this track guys, it's one of my favorites. Yes Lenny, the artwork will be the album art for the second album titled "Miles of Sound". The artist is Cory Ench and he is my favorite professional fractal artist. If you are interested in his work he has a massive collection of mind-boggling fractal artwork to view and for sale and we have a direct link to his stuff at our website: http://www.fractal-garden.com./

Top of the chart again - right where you guys belong. Something really gelled nicely on this one. Gotta love that sustain that Igno has going there. I was impressed by how seamless the transitions were in this track (i.e. guitar runs to DGO's trance parts). Yeah, the artwork is important and I've always love those fractal pieces that DGO has placed. I don't spend time on the other music making sites but I live for all these great collabs.

Thanks for the listens and comments, everyone. I'd agree with John that this is one of my favorites too. Watching this grow from a simple idea into 2 songs that became one (with lots of whipped cream and a cherry on top!) was hugely satisfying. Tons o' fun!!

Not that I'm expecting wood-dude to come back and check for a response on this page, but for those who really, really want to know, we just finished mastering our Between Strangers CD, and it'll be on CDBaby before too long. You can find us on iTunes right now, though -- check our web site for a direct link. Our next CD (and I suppose this bad boy's gonna be on it) is a ways off. But John just sent me over another monster track -- who knows how it will end up?

Appreciate your interest!

I love it! There is so much owing to Tangerine Dream, Jean Michel Jarre, and more in this! The song is a great journey and I'm glad to have been taken along, driven on a wave of spacey music from beginning to end.

I am so buying your actual CD so I can get full quality versions of this -- which I'll promptly rip to my iPOd to listen on my bad speakers in my rattly car with the wind noise coming through cracks around the windows... But, hey, I'll just crank it up!

Great ambience.
Really good production.
I think that vocals here could be great because i felt that the solo guitar don't have weight in terms of melody (only in one point of the song i found a good melody - simple and effective. The other solos are very good but not so proeminent).
However, the song is awesome. Forgive me for my comentary if it was offensive. I don't mean to.

Awesome, emotional intro. If you close your eyes, you can see an entire animated landscape form in your head. Very cinematic. I really like the transition into the more "electronica" section; it makes your heart beat a bit faster before relaxing again. Quite literally "a trip."

Some of you asked me about the guitar I used. It's an Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci Piezo model, typically called a Pet or a JP for very obvious reasons, and it allows me to create some really interesting textures with the dual inputs. This track has guitar parts done solely with the Piezo, solely with the magnetic coils, and a combination of both. An amazing instrument. Here's a pic:
