Quote from: Travis on November 07, 2019, 03:17:12 amWow, you blew the dust of this place and posted something. Thats cool. I check in once in a while and have kept the forum really as as archive. With the end of CDs and the ability to generate any income from music my interest have been channeled elsewhere. Thats not to say I haven't been doing music, I just don't know what to do with it.

FWIW, I check the forum regularly, always hoping for some news ;)

(I don't have an Arsebook account)

Regarding your new music: Why not put it up at Bandcamp, as you have done with some of your previous works? This will at least give interested people (like me) access to your new stuff. I understand it will probably not generate a whole lot of income. But some income should be better than nothing...

Quote from: TravisBut, the new studio is coming along and I have been working with all my usual collaborators in the temporary studio in my house. Viggo and I have been working on the score to his new film, thats what I was doing in London a few weeks ago. The results should be of interest to all those that used to frequent this place.
Hopefully it will lead to some new projects.

At least the Viggo project can be heard on big screens everywhere. But the rest I'm just not sure.

I'm glad to hear the new studio is emerging!

BTW: Which Viggo movie are you referring to? Is it "Falling" (upcoming film)?

Quote from: TravisOnce the studio is done I plan on revisiting alternative ways of distribution. I think when you see stories like, vinyl records are outselling CDs thats only indicative of how far Cds have fallen. However, I have been thinking about it. I'm kind of interested in releasing a new project as vinyl only. But I do have a really cool catalog that something should be done with.

The problems are, its expensive to press vinyl and it requires selling them for stupid prices. The sweet spot for pricing music verses the cost to make them that was easy with Cds just isn't there. Its too pricey for people not willing to pony up that kind of cash causing the cost to those who are too pay too much. The other problem with repressing CDs to vinyl is, CDs held so much more music then vinyl there is not room on a single disc to hold the content of a CD. So you end up in this odd problem of having too mush music for a single disc and not enough for double.

Oh, whatever you decide, please don't do Vinyl only! :o

I'd always much prefer CDs. But, if CD isn't possible, a high-quality download (FLAC or ALAC, no MP3 please!) is fine too for me. Even Vinyl with download code would still be okay. But, as you said, Vinyl tends to be very expensive, especially with all the shipping cost to my location.

Vinyl only would mean I cannot do much with it, except for putting it up on my wall ;)

Quote from: TravisOne of the things I miss about this forum is the feedback about the demand for things. You may remember Thanatopsis Requiem that did not go well and was the last thing I produced for this label. But I'm opened to opinions. So hopefully the first part of next year I'll be revamping this sight, my Facebook presence and new projects and distribution ideas. Thanks for posting.

Too bad that Thanatopsis Requiem didn't go well. It is such a great album!

The whole Thanatopsis back catalogue is awesome and among my all time favorites. Unfortunately, it seems only few people know about it... ???


Best Regards

Awesome to get input from you. We are friends on Facebook, but I figured the easiest way to reach out would be here (while also allowing others to chime in instead of it being one-on-one).

I figured it would be more expensively press vinyl. Suppose there was a strong interest for it, and a presale actually went well for a vinyl release...could it be done? Was considering maybe using the power of Facebook to generate interest. 

I miss the days when this was the go-to place to discuss music. I still check in every now and then. I think I have a few CD's I need to purchase from here, too...

Also, I can't believe Requiem didn't do well! The Thanatopsis music (ESPECIALLY Axiology), to me, is so pure. I don't remember it not doing well but I do remember how hyped I was when it was announced/released, I didn't even think it was real. I have all of those CD's. I even just recently bought a copy of the first Thanatopsis signed by you, Buckethead, and Ramy.

Glad I could clear the dust off here!  :)

Hey Travis, I hope you have been well. I saw on Facebook you've been building a new studio, and honestly, I can't wait to see what the future holds for it.

I know you're busy with that, but I was just thinking recently about a time that Axiology was going to be pressed on vinyl if there were enough preorders. I was starting to think, with vinyl sales on the rise, would it be a possibility of having albums that were recorded at TDRS pressed on vinyl? Whether it's Thanatopsis albums, Iconography, Dragons of Eden, Owl Dives, or Gorgone...I don't expect it to happen but I think it could definitely spark interest.

What are your thoughts?

Quote from: Travis on June 10, 2019, 01:41:37 pmHey back. Looks like its just you and me. Since last you checked in, all the above continues to be true and i closed my recording studio to to the economics of the music business and the insane escalation of Los Angels rents. I'm rebuilding the studio in my home, and that will take the better part of the rest of the year. In the meantime i have a small studio set up and have been working on the score to Viggos new film and a couple of records that were in progress when I moved. My own music is on hold while my brother is recovering from his reconstruction surgery. When he's feeling up to it we'll get back to recording and hopefully have a shinny new studio to do it in.
Oh, that's sad to hear. Insane rents seems to be a big problem everywhere these days :-\

Anyway, I wish all the best for your plans with the new "home" studio as well as for your brother's recovery! Looking forward to hear some new output anytime.

BTW: Can you say what is the new Viggo film that you are working on?

Not sure if it\'ll be individually or as a collection...  What do you think would be coolest?

I\'ll put up a link soon.

Hi there My name is Orlapan
I was playing a bit the other night when I touched the rim around the neck pickup and Ann Coulter started talking out of my amp. I don\'t know whose show she was on as I moved my hand away pretty quick. Of course it had to be loud too so was like a bit of a shock! I don\'t know. I am not sure if the amp will ever sound the same now. Just what do I do now eh? Exorcism?
