Winter is almost here!

Winter will be released on February 10, 2024 at 8pm at Cerritos College.

The band has spent the last eight months recording the album and now we are rehearsing for the concert.

We are very excited to present this album to you, especially since we had originally planned to release it in February 2021. However, the delay has given us time to live and grow with the music. It is a better album now because of the time we have spent with it.

The concert will take place on the main stage of the Performing Arts Center at Cerritos College. The concert will be a multimedia show with lights, video, staging, and dancing. We are adding a new dimension to how we present music to you all.

We are also excited to have a few bands opening for us. The first two bands, Better-Off and Garbage Days are from Whitney High School and Norwalk High School. The third band, The Wanderers, is from Cerritos College.

The event is free and open to the public.

Idle Thoughts

It is often interesting to me that whenever I try to write, not much writing happens. However, the moments I am not trying to write is often when the writing begins. Hence the title of my post.

As creators we often get wrapped up in the business of the craft; we have to create our products.

What is difficult for me is that I create albums. I do not set out to create one song after another, I begin with a concept for an album and build the songs around the concept. Historically, when I complete an album, I begin writing a new one. The problem is that the next album is written. We even began to have rehearsals to prepare for the recording sessions a year ago. But then our realities were abruptly altered.

And so, I am in a holding pattern. Until the album is recorded and released, it is not really finished. At least not in my mind.

I do have a lot of content, however. Content from previous albums that need to be heard. I even have concert footage from the past two album releases that I need to finish uploading. There is work to be done; it just is not as exciting as writing songs.

Over the new few weeks, I will be updating my YouTube channel to include all the footage from the album release concerts for Entropy and Singularity. I also have a handful of random sketches of music that have not found a home yet.

Maybe creativity arrives in that sliver of a moment between being active and idle.

If we try too hard, perhaps we miss the moment. If we do not try, perhaps the moment never shows up.

I will let know what happens.

In the meantime, here is a sketch.
