As some of you already know, Percy TKNX and I are working on an album called Ocean Coast (in our collaboration project 87PM). We're delighted to announce that the album - after years of work and refining - is finally set to be released this july! Currently, all tracks are mixed and we've asked Oren and Rharv from YourBestSound.com to do the mastering which they've agreed to do. Seeing their quality work with the In A Spin CD we are delighted that they jumped on board!
 
The album spans a wide range of styles - sometimes even within the tracks - but the general, connecting theme is that of a civilization that lives under water. A world where land based life is mythical and the harsh, ever changing nature of the deep sea all too familiar. The ocean is meant both as a vision of a different world and as a metaphor.
 
As a preview we're including the track list and as an attach the cover of the album. Previews of the first two tracks are available in our 87pm artist page on Kara Moon (although these are the unmastered ones).
 
Ocean Coast - track list:
1. Oceanic Waves
2. Oceanic Dreams
3. Ocean Explorer
4. Coral Plains
5. Gulf Stream
6. Voice Of The Oceans
7. Dark Ocean
8. Blue Ascension
9. Ocean
10. Coast

We're still discussing release strategies although it will at least be distributed as a download through the great webshop support of Kara-Moon, where we'll also shortly be opening a website.

Expect more info and tasters for the tracks soon!

Here's a screenshot of mastering the first track in Linux using

Mastering in Audacity is very comfortable and effective.

Mastering with JAMin as a JACK client brings all the capabilities of Ardour into the picture. Big, very big Grin. Then, add to that the ability to numerically verify tonal values, compression quality, and input/output levels.
Heaven, I have arrived...  wOO

A small change to the tracklist: one extra track has been added called Gulf Stream, an up tempo synth track combining material from this project with melodies that Percy and I first came up with about 15 years ago...

Been a bit absent from the forum as both Percy and I have been practicing a lot for our mini-concert the 5th of july. I'm both anxious and very exited about this as I haven't got much live experience (although Percy has, so hopefully he'll be able to compensate for that! Wink).

Anyway, we'll be playing six tracks (two of 'em combined, so technically five) and the final three will be assisted by a guitarist and drummer which we had a practice session with last weekend and which really sounded great. We'll be recording the performance itself so at some point you'll be able to check it out (whether you want to or not! Wink).

We also found a good deal on the cd manufacturing... Looks like it'll not only be downloadable!

After the concert that I'll be visiting the forums more often again.
