Pixietricks' Solo Album, Origins - New Song 12/23!

102 posts in this topic

Hey guys. I have a bit of exciting news to announce. First and foremost, my first original album is currently underway! That's right - one album, one me, and... an indeterminate number of songs. ^_~ When will be the release, you ask? I'm shooting for this coming spring, 2008. A realistic goal, I believe, but I'll hold off on the specifics until things are closer to completion.

The album itself will feature soaring vocal tracks mixed with a dash of ethnic/electronic flavor. Inspired by such artists as Enya and Loreena McKennitt, I hope to envoke an emotional response through my music while exploring new methods of lyrical communication. If you've downloaded any of my video game remixes, expect music along a similar vein... only better! Special appearances from zircon, and possibly other interested artists from the community, as well.

Now, if you are a particularly zealous fan - or even a mildly curious person - then you're in luck! I have finally set up an official mailing list, which will allow me to send out the occasional update with samples of my current work, release dates, and other tasty tidbits. If you're at all interested, don't hesitate to join! Just head over to the "Contact" page on my website, enter in your email address, and check off the "Join my Mailing List" option before submitting. I doubt I'll email you more than once a month, but you can always remove yourself from the list if you decide you've heard enough of my voice for a while.

Anyway, I'm definitely psyched for this project. I have two tracks completely finished, one almoooost done, another in progress, and several rough sketches. Things are coming along well! I'll post a couple previews on my site and myspace in a bit, but first dibs to those on the mailing list. :>

Oh shit, I'm in. Any potential for vgm in the album or no?

Right on, Pixie! Sounds amazing - super pumped to hear it (in 10 months, lol).

ps: Loreena McKennitt is amazing, fine small-town Manitoba girl! (I grew up in small town Mantitoba as well, but not the same town as Ms. McKennitt, boo.)

As I'm helping to produce/master some of the tracks, I can say all of the ones I've heard so far are great. Even if you don't like some of pixie's remixes, you'll no doubt find something you like here as there are a lot of styles involved. :)

Thanks! And yeah, to expand upon what zircon said earlier... I think you'll find the tracks on this album of higher quality than a lot of my remixes here. I've been paying much more attention to detail than I normally would for a vg tune, and with Andy's mastering expertise things should sound pretty polished in the end. :>

Indeed.

(smokes a bubble pipe)

On a side note: Christ Almighty, I've been coming to this site for 4 years, and I've only made like 300 posts?!?!

O_O

goddamn I need to talk more. : /

Absolutely. Previews soon! I want to give first dibs to the people on the mailing list (which includes you now), and then I'll put some short clips up on my website and MySpace.

After getting Antigravity and hearing the work you and Zircon put into it, I look forward to hearing the new album, when it comes out. If possible, I'd like to be on the list, please.

I can't manually add you to the list without knowing your name and email address, but it's easy. Just go to this page, enter your return address, check off the "Join my Mailing List" box, and click submit. You will then receive an ugly confirmation email that requires you click one last link to activate your subscription. ^_~

Oh my God that mailing address was hideous, haha. Might want to look into that. ^_^

Yeah, I looked into it last night with the help of zircon and Xerol, but unfortunately there's no way to change it. At least it's just a one-time email? :/

This is very true. The only issue is that if I wasn't expecting it, I would have thought it to be spam.

I sent the message to become on the mailing list but i didn't type anything in the message box, so if you see one like that its probably mine.

As long as you put in your e-mail address it should work.
