The Boy, the Bird, & the Beast

June 6, 2015 – 6:01 am

After 5 long years, a project I began with Tyler Ringer & Jeremy Ray has finally been released. Recording began on May 2nd, 2010, and was completed on August 21st, 2011. In the subsequent 4 years, I spent time on and off re-programming instruments, mixing, and mastering. These are by far the largest songs I’ve worked on, with some songs containing as many as 94 tracks. Attempting to mix such massive songs was a bit daunting, but I’m happy with how they turned out and am excited for them to finally be released. They all feature a wide variety of unique instruments, some you’ve maybe never even heard of before! You can read the full credits list on Bandcamp. You can download the 32-minute album for free — just click Buy Now on Bandcamp and enter 0 in the Name Your Price box. The album features 7 songs, all coming together to form a story, while each song seamlessly transitions from one track to the next as the journey continues. I’d recommend downloading in one of the higher quality formats, such as ALAC, to make sure the gap timing is preserved, as MP3 can add space between songs as a byproduct of its compression process. Each track also has its own artwork, each a scene from the Tapisserie de l’Apocalypse. I hope you enjoy these songs as much as we did making them!
