Today I have been busy working on gathering samples for the next two releases from Phrygian Phish: Fractals and Beyond the Dice: Symphonic Soundscapes.
Fractals is the first album that I will release under my name. This album is - different. Original. Strange. Out-there. Not your typical album. The idea came about when I was thinking of applying properties of fractals to music composition. I had thought about it from time to time, but did not get started with it until the last few days of 2011. I wrote Fractal 1 to be an experiment into the plausibility of having listenable music while doing this.
Then I lost my job and I have been fighting depression and self-worth issues. Once my self-pity party was over, I got back into writing these nifty little pieces and concluded with a 45 minute, 10 song album.
I am still working on a plan for the release of the music: whether it is released by another label or self-released. In the meantime, I have some samples that you can check out:
Beyond the Dice: Symphonic Soundscapes - This album actually is somewhat the catalyst for Phrygian Phish. It was because I liked writing the soundtracks for these tabletop games so much that I saw an opportunity to try to make a living doing music. We are still waiting to see if that is the case :)
This album consists of six pieces of orchestral music for use in tabletop gaming along with two "bonus" tracks. Each piece sets a different mood and helps add depth to the games being played. I am working on promotional materials and a website specifically for this release, so stay tunes in for that.
Without further ado, here are the music samples for Beyond the Dice:
