Music update: 2016 albums and what’s coming up in 2017
I’m quite pleased with what I achieved in 2016. As my Music page shows, I released four new albums:
- Symmetry 1
- Symmetry 2
- Voyage into Space
I released Symmetry 1 and Symmetry 2 simultaneously, under the name “GFD”. Towards the end of the year, I released Voyage into Space, also as “GFD”.
Meanwhile, the Revisited project was an opportunity for me to bring some of my oldest tracks up to date. Although a few have been remixed before, I felt that they were worth another look. I remixed 10 tracks from A World Beyond, and 10 tracks from Besidewalk Plight.
In 2017, I’ve decided to have another try at FAWM – a site that challenges you to write 14 tracks in 28 days. Way back in 2007, I successfully completed this challenge – the music I wrote ultimately became The Unravelling of Travelling. Ten years on, it feels like a good time to do it all over again. If all goes well, the music will form the basis for my tenth album, which I’ve ten-tatively called… Ten. (I’ll stop now.)
After that, I’d like to come back to the Revisited project. Instead of making the current 20-track album even longer, I’m expecting to kick off an altogether new album, called Revisited 2. The album will include remixes of tracks from Twice Midnight, and The Unravelling of Travelling.
I’m excited to get started!
