ENTRY 8

January 20, 2006 - One Day coming Spring 2006!!

Things are coming along just fine. We have art, music, engineering, and management, now we just need production! Quasar wrote the music, Kourosh did the most wonderful art, The Mistress of Evil (M.o.E) have picked up the album and are releasing it on their label!!! (Many thanks to M.o.E!!, muhahaha), and Chromatone did the final mastering (Beam me up, Scotty!). Now we are listening that everything is OK and all the artwork looks OK and all of those millions of little details to flesh out. But we are OK! Better than OK, we are very excited about this release. There has been much anticipation about the CD, and for good purpose. In the words of Dylalien:

"...This album raises the bar for psychedelic trance...."

January 20, 2006 - One Day coming Spring 2006!!

So it looks good so far! I can not wait to see what Kourosh comes up with next! (Kourosh is the Visionary Zing Artist doing the visual side of the album).

Oct 30, 2005 - The octagon is a paragon!

So here we are again. Finished with the album writing process, now what? A new web site, for one thing. And...

After about 8000 listens, I am almost finished with the Mixdown phase of the album. It is always good to let the album sink in for a week or so before beginning the final mixdown. Well, almost final mixdown! There is still conference with the mastering engineer. I hope I got all of the sounds in the ballpark, but a professional engineer and better monitors may bring out some glaring changes. Only time will tell.
More information to come...

ENTRY 3

Oct 21, 2005 - The album writing process is complete!

The next step is the MIXDOWN stage. This is where the final nips and tucks happen, that is, any final changes before it gets mastered. For example, too much bass in this song. Lead not loud enough in this part. Drums too loud in this song. Etc...

Also, now begins the label locator phase as well. This is where we find the appropriate label for the album.

This is a short entry, but I'll fill you in more next week! The mixdown phase can last a while, but I'm trying to finish in a week (or so).

ENTRY 2

Oct 06, 2005 - Long time coming...

Due to the increased interstellar debris, I have been unable to update this blog until now. No worries, the time has been filled with much music-making and merriment! In fact, I am putting the finishing touches on the album now. It should be complete by the middle of October 2005, just two weeks away!
The name of the album, after much deliberation, will be.

One Day

( !!! )

The album itself is based on a short story that I wrote. The name of the story is, oddly enough, "One Day."

The music itself is, then, a weave of sounds, adapted from the short story. You can read along as the album plays, and a story unfolds. Actually, several stories, on different levels. Each song carries its own story in sound. Each trance journey is complete in and of itself. Then you have "level 2," where the songs come together to form tracks on a CD. When the CD is played, it is a seam-less storyline of samples and sounds. Then on another level, you have the short story by itself, which is a complete story. Then, finally, you have the "full picture" (or is it?) of the song and story together, working synergistically to weave a tapestry of symbolism and meaning.

I will definitely be updating this blog more as the time progresses. After writing the album, I will have more time to keep this story moving and evolving here in words, as it moves and evolves in and out of cyberspace! If I have some trouble keeping up, you know why... Interstellar Space Debris! (and X-rays from Xenon-Five!)

ENTRY 1

Sept. 27, 2005 - Welcome to the quasar section of the blogsphere!

This is the first entry. I have been working on the album since May 2005, Terran-time. I woke up one morning, and a voice spoke to me, "Quasar, it is time to start the Album..."

It wasn't one of those big, boomy, alph-male voices that you hear in the movies. No, this voice was definitely a Woman, and a very sexy one at that. (well, at least the voice was sexy!)

So I took my Hyper-space Cruiser out of Auto-Fuck, and began my decent into the quantum space-time continuum in which you find yourself now.
I decided to do a concept album, a'la Pink Floyd, the Who, Beethoven, you get the picture... Kinda like "The Wall," but more like "Breaking through the Fucking Wall and Being So Fucking Happy You Dance Your Ass Off!"
The concept for this album is Realization, Transformation, Revival!

The "other" concept is that each Trance Track is a complete concept in itself, that is, you can play any of these tracks in a DJ set and make it fit. It's called Multi-Dimensional!

Got It?!!

The story is about someone named Charlie. This slang on Mars, which means "humanoid biot." That is, a Charlie is a male or a female, sometimes referred to as Charlene. This means YOU!

The CD is divided into three "books."

Book I - The Walk-In - is a kind of sound tutorial. It is presented to help the listener understand the predicament we are currently enveloped in. Many concepts are introduced along with the storyline of Charlie. These concepts are metaphysical and are meant to activate and then short-circuit your preconceived notions about, well, everything! (I was a philosopher in another time-space continuum).

Book 2 - The Transformation - is where our hero(ine) is transformed through the neurosomatic rapture of the fifth circuit. This is Dhyana in Sanskrit. Or Zen in Japan. In the West, it is known as the "ego-death," which can be unpleasant at the beginning, because, well, the ego is dying. But afterwards, the experience of ego-loss is realized, and one is able to see through the dominance-submission hierarchies of their human-primate brothers. In fact, dualism is no longer existing, and the adept is now experiencing a "one-ness with everything, an ecstasy" This can also happen through dancing to trance music! --[do you remember?]--

Book C - The Revival - is a multi-headed Octopussy from Betelgeuse. It is about turning the inside out. That is, the Revival of spirit, magic, love, one-ness, and all those things. Now you know, what you gonna do about it??? It is also an analogy of the sixth circuit which is called the MegaProgramming circuit by Leary/Wilson and Samadhi in system of the Hindus. At the end is a little track called The Eschaton, which is, well... you might want to look that one up yourself....

Ok, that is all for now. The Hyperspace Cruiser in which I am traveling is reaching the outskirts of your solar system now. That means, the album should be on Terra and ready for you to hear by January 2006.
Bom Appetite!
