NEW pixietricks holiday album!


Recommended Posts

Hi guys! I know I haven't been posting as often around here as of late, but OCR is still very much in my thoughts. I'm always lurking... :<

So what have I been up to lately? Well, like a mad scientist I disappeared into the laboratory for a while to work on my masterful new creation! It's true. I locked myself away from the world - shunning food and almost all forms of human contact (with the obvious exception of zircon) - in order to bring you....

Through Sand and Snow

Release Date: November 25th, 2008

Preorders Available: TODAY, at JillianGoldin.com!

Price: A modest $9.99

Songs Included:

* Prelude

* I Wonder As I Wander

* What Child Is This? (a.k.a. Greensleeves)

* God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen

* Walking In the Air (from the classic animated film "The Snowman")

* Silent Night

...Woo hoo! So what are you waiting for? Preorder a copy, and ensure that you are among the first to receive the new album! :D

Now for some more good news: in anticipation of the holiday season, I have set up all sorts of discounts and specials offers for both CD releases. With every copy of Through Sand and Snow that you preorder, you'll also receive a complimentary gift card featuring the winter song "Walking In the Air." You can pass it on to a loved one... or even send it out with your holiday cards this year, for that extra special touch. It's a beautiful winter song (non-demoninational), so anyone can enjoy it!

This gift card offer also applies if you preorder Through Sand and Snow with a copy of Origins, in the 2-CD Combo Pack deal. :>

And finally, both CDs are now set up to offer discounts in bulk - so you will automatically get 2-4 dollars off each additional CD that you buy!

I know how hectic the holiday season can be, and that is largely why I was inspired to start this project in the first place. For Andy and I, it has been a whirlwind of music-making, track-mixing, and hair-splitting... But the result? A breath of fresh (albeit cold) air. ^-^

Ahhh, thanks for the warm reception! I'm glad you're liking the previews, and Wes: yeah, I've heard the nightwish cover of Walking In the Air. It's such a great song that I couldn't resist... :>

By the way, who did the cover art this time? It looks phenomenal. You did the art for Origins, correct?

Oh wow, I had no idea that song was from a Christmas movie. The only place I've encountered it is on Nightwish's Oceanborn album; they do a wonderfully evocative cover. Hope your version can stand out after hearing it done so well. ^^

I don't usually buy holiday albums, though, since it's akin to hearing Terra remixed for the millionth time. I'll have to think about it.

Haha, it's not ANY holiday album. I'd be skeptical too, but the previews sold me. Moneys transferred.

This guy's done matte painting for Fallout 3 promos! What a great choice.

Yeah, isn't he incredible? I really lucked out... Since he works for a big design firm, normally they would charge in the thousands for something like this. But as it turns out, he is a big fan of New Age/chillout music! So after listening to my stuff, he liked it so much that he offered to treat it as a personal project! And of course, he's getting signed copies of all my albums for the rest of his life. :>

haha, it's good to have strings to pull! :-D

Ahh Walking in the Air...I always think of Nightwish when I think of that song now (they covered it early in their career).

Nice to see another album though - preordered!

When I saw Walking In The Air was on this album, it made me instantly think of this.
