announcing chromedecay tracks pt. 2: 2001-2005

Back in 2001, I released a limited-edition CD called “chromedecay tracks: 1996-2001”. My friend Harrison burned 50 copies on his duplicating machine that would print on the discs, I designed a cover in Photoshop, and I had something I could give out to people as demos and promo items, with an intent toward getting the material released on a proper record label.

That never happened, so “chromedecay tracks: 1996-2001” remained a limited-edition promo-only piece. I did release an edit of one of the tracks on the Planet E compilation “All Access”, but that’s as far as that material ever went.

Fast-forward to 2005. A lot has changed in the 4 years since the release of the first “chromedecay tracks”: I’ve broadened my musical horizons significantly, switched my primary compositional platform from MacOS 9 and Studio Vision Pro to OS X and Logic, and become a Christian in the summer of 2003. All during that time period, I’ve been writing music that I intended to be released on various labels as various projects. For one reason or another, lots of those projects never panned out, so I’m sitting on a ton of material. I recently decided that I would make that material available.

I’m still finalizing the tracklist, artwork, and release format, but it will be between 10 and 13 tracks, with color artwork and CD-R media. I’ve already made a few of the tracks that are going to be on the record available for free download, so they should act as a nice bit of promotion for the record once it’s all tied together. I expect to have it ready for purchase in the next few months.

Exciting stuff for sure! Thanks for all the love and support over the years.
