And so, as we have now passed into the second month of 2012, I feel I should put some words down to illustrate that rumours of my demise have been somewhat exaggerated.
The last few days has been spent in complete solitude, which has enabled the commencement of Homeostasis +1 – that is, the new album.
Because of the fact that I do not have any permanent abode, my ability to compose music has been greatly reduced, which is ironic, since much of my time has been spent at Flamedog recording studios. But I’ve been doing things for other people, mainly album design, web design, etc, etc. I’ve no idea how it’s taken so bloody long to get what appears to be simple things done. Well, I guess getting a record label established, including the whole ecommerce thing as well as produce physical CDs etc is a reasonable time-spinner….
Anyway, I’m happy to say that a simultaneous album and book is in progress now. I’d like to keep the size of the book down this time – my last album/book effort, Information Island, took several years and was much more of a process than I’d have believed.
So – behold the inception of…..
The Fall and Rise of Robert Blake
and it’s Relationship to the Various Events Contributing to the End of the World
…coming in a few months.
I’m excited by what’s been done so far. I look forward to the end result, as I have no idea how it will play out, myself.
Well, it’s back to the nomadic lifestyle tomorrow. I’m getting tired of it, after … what? … maybe almost three years without a home.
Once you get out, it gets increasingly hard to get back in. So it goes.
