Things are going well, the ‘Alex-24’ album is finished and should be available on itunes soon. Vinyl and cd distribution is going to take a while, but I hope to have hard-copies available by Spring 2014 (sorry for the delay!).
Now I’m working on touring that material around Tokyo. I’m hoping to get back to regular gigging from November, assuming I can negotiate work hours that let me play music!
I’m also proud to announce that I’ve successfully acquired funding for my next album Kodama. This album is a real change in direction artistically and I hope will be a really interesting work. As I have funding, it will be professionally mastered and I hope to generate some interest from bigger labels, as it’s going to be a cool, instrumental hip-hop album.
I’ve just begun sampling from vinyl to make new beats and textures and I plan to do more instrumental recordings of guitars and saxophones in the next few months. Thank you to everyone who’s supported me in this endeavour.
I’m really looking forward to this fall, I’m hoping to achieve some more of the promise this year holds. I’ve been writing piano works as often as usual, there just hasn’t been enough time to fine-tune them yet.
I’m looking forward to bringing you new music and I’m upbeat about the future. 🙂 なんくるないさ。 G e o
