I’ve been interviewed on Escapology, a site dedicated to showcasing experimental music.

Unlike my usual interviews, this one has nothing to do with design and is entirely focused on music. It made a nice change! Andrew asked me some great questions and we chatted about how I got into music and how everything came about. This is the interview I mentioned the other day; the one that sparked the idea of releasing something on vinyl.

Elsewhere on the music front, I’ve been taking a bit of a break, as I’m currently in Denver for Web Directions North. In the meantime, Rhys has continued work on the tracks, and the files he’s sent me so far sound fantastic. He’s been adding all sorts of lovely Mellotron textures and additional melodies to the songs, and once he’s done and I’ve incorporated these new files into the mix, I think the songs will take on a whole new feel. I can’t wait!

Thanks for all of your comments on the last post, by the way. I’m still undecided about the whole CD vs. vinyl thing, but I promise I’ll respond to your comments properly when I’m back in Blighty.

Soon, I’ll be announcing the first EP’s release date, so stay tuned, as they say…
