hope everyones having a good start to the new year. here's what to expect from Hectic Zeniths in 2014:
-long overdue hectic zeniths t-shirts! (they actually were printed a few weeks ago but there was a minor setback, should be putting them up for sale within the next month). the logo looks awesome.
-putting up a new song w/ artwork on bandcamp a few days before valentine's day. i made it for my girlfriend. i like it a lot. i hope you like it.
-hoping we can finish this 4 song hectic zeniths/sketch lightly collaborative EP and put it up by the end of the year. it sounds pretty different than anything else i've done (almost entirely composed from field recordings). i love it.
-lastly, here's a progress update on whats up with the next full album:
one of my goals in 2013 was to have 30 piano ideas for HZ II. (why 30? seemed like a good number to be able to scrap the ones that arent as strong and have enough for an 1 full album plus an EP or LP of b-sides/outtakes.) i don't know when i will be able to practice and record them in a studio and start turning them into new songs, but...I do have 30 piano ideas for it. i've been writing them on music paper this time instead of just trying to memorize everything. also got a new turntable in 2013, did my first record dig for the album, and chopped/saved samples from most of it. in 2014 i will be a bit occupied with going back to school [again] and trying to change careers, but finishing writing all the piano parts i plan to record was a huge step forward. maybe i'll get with the times and finally get an iphone to do instagram updates once in a while so this page doesn't become too dead in 2015-2016 when i'm working on the album.
