Work continues on the "Structures of Paradise" album, which is a collaboration with my son, Callum Raeburn-Fellowes, based upon a live set we performed last year at a regular event known as the Awakenings Evening of Electronic and Ambient Music.
We had hoped to have released this album before now, but a series of family matters had to take priority. That said, we are aiming to release it on Sunday 13th July 2014. We have chosen this date as it will then be exactly one year since our Awakenings performance.
I am currently rendering the individual tracks of the third part of the album audio, ready for final mixing and mastering.
We are preparing artwork and my good friend Simon Watson, will taking the photos we'll need for the album, as well as a website we are preparing and a Facebook page.
Our first artwork draft showed us that having our individual names together on the front cover was a bit long-winded, so on the suggestion of another pal and fellow muso, Duncan Goddard, we will be releasing the album under the name F/R-F.
After much deliberation and a look at our finances, we are opting for a digital download only release. This is because the cost of producing CDs is simply too expensive for us and we want this music out there sooner rather than later. A few people have commented on this to us, but at the end of the day, this is how it has to be, unless someone out there wants to sponsor the money for CD production. Even though we cannot guarantee a return.
There'll be a few more updates in the coming weeks.
