Title: Broken Harbour - 'The Geometry of Shadows' Now Available
Post by: | broken harbour | on October 06, 2012, 01:36:36 PM
My latest album, 'The Geometry of Shadows', is now available.

(http://f0.bcbits.com/z/66/99/669943506-1.jpg)

Originally the music was composed under the title 'Ansible' in 2009, but was shelved when I took a break from music.  Then last year after I released Gramophone Transmissions, I dusted off the material and reworked it over 9 months into this release.  It's quite a left turn from my previous work, but still sounds somewhat familiar in a way, with plenty of variety in terms of mood.  Currently it is available as a digital download on Bandcamp and CD Baby.  There will be a limited Digipack/CDR release coming November 2nd as well, limited to 100 copies, more info on that later.

A big shoutout to Relaxed Machinery (http://relaxedmachinery.com/) for making this release possible!

I was recently interviewed by Relaxed Machinery, I talk about the inspiration behind the album, the creative process, gear, etc... It's fascinating...

Nice interview thing.  That's interesting about "first 15 minutes of Prometheus" as I felt those minutes were amazing.  Then it all went terribly wrong...

Thanks!  So far the response has been really great, even better than 'Gramophone Transmissions'!
CD-R is available for pre-order, you'll get an immediate download of the album to listen to while you wait for it to appear in the mail.

Interesting, sounded like something I may have done in the past at the beginning of the first track. I'll check out the others as time permits and perhaps scoop it once I check my paypal funds.

drone on - glad you liked the interview thing...   Blake (Broken Harbour) had the idea that maybe all the artists on the label should interview each other.   We'll be doing it on future releases.

Yes, it's good to know more about the artist as sometimes you have assumptions or ideas in your head about someone, such as their age.  Didn't realize Blake was such a youngster!

Thanks Bert!


Hypnos is now carrying the album, as well as my previous release 'Gramophone Transmissions'.  Buying from Mike and Lena would be a great way to save on shipping if you combine your orders with their other offerings.

Rik M wrote a glowing review of the album.... back in March, and I forgot to toot my own horn...
