July News…musical directions and crossroads

At last count after the recent sabbatical and consolidation of my musical brain and emotional and financial well being…[always a biggie…went into a dark place for awhile], I have come out with the following projects…all totally self f……unded/recorded and released online and printed on demand!!
1. Soundtrack album …14 instrumental pieces and incidental music working titles “Airs and Graces” [2012]
2. Pop EP…. 5 Tracks following in the psychedelic/Folk/Electronic ven with lots of harmonies and guest singers…working title “Rainbows End” [2012]
3. Audio book collaboration with Justin Sheedy author [2012]
4. 5 songs to be scored and performed by a string ensemble [2013]
5. Electronic EP [2013] with Carina Barbro Hagg [dynamic Swedish Soprano and former sparring partner in FTR.]
I am recording totally at home now with the help of cubase software
Most of this work is already done if you are worried about my sanity and energy levels
A sample of some of the work written for string ensemble…still digital but you get the idea..

Some new songs June

I have been enjoying a break from touring for the last 6 weeks and have just basically been hanging out writing and doing my thing [Teaching/Tapenades] on the farm and taking care of things round here


Nice place to write and record…nearest neighbour is half a kilometre!!!!   Just 20 minutes to Mudgee in Central West NSW

Just finished an extended home recording session …15 tracks written and tracked to be pared down to 5 for a new EP slated for late August release….heres some demos…let us know what you think
