- art for art's sake, life's what we make. No comment on
artistic merit, but on the creative front things have been unusually
prolific here. Nearly one hour of new music in two months surely must
mean someone was having fun. And so it is that all commissioned tracks
for the upcoming 'Pulse - Landscape Art' installation are in the bag,
ready for mastering and handover early next year.
As a preview here is a short track from it, Pulse 1, which sets the cadence for a number of related pieces that act as links between the four main titles.
Have a peaceful and blissed-out year's end, and an inspired 2013.

- work on our new album is on temporary hold as we've been commissioned
to write a suite of atmospheric tracks for an upcoming art exhibition.
Enjoying the challenge of working to a brief and new material is
popping up thick and fast (not THAT fast - it's ambient style, so
down-tempo). Squeezing every last whacky drop from weird synth textures
and samples, but there's ample guitar and fretless bass too. The current
plan is to release these tracks on a separate album in the near future.
Work on the main album will pick up soon again. We're about halfway
through, so this little sabbatical came at an opportune time to help
gain some distance and perspective before diving back in.

- Tricky birth, this one. But when it started walking there was no stopping this new song.
Damn near wrecked the studio in the end. But worth it for the smiles
alone. We think it's going to become a scientist. Oops - maybe not.

- Here's a quote I quite like: “The reasonable man adapts himself to
the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to
himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”
(George Bernard Shaw)
Does this in any way relate to our latest song, Midas Suite? Doubtful, but not impossible.

- With the warmer season upon us staying cooped up in the studio takes a
bit of resolve. Pleased to report therefore that we slapped the packing
tape on another new song. It's called Don't Let Go and it's special. Find out why here. Have a good summer!

24. April 2012 ...but a big-ish leap for Blue Flux. Hitting the 1K mark on our favourite network is reason for modest celebration. Cheers all!
- no sooner said than done: updated studio pics are now up.
You probably won't even notice all the other
little housekeeping tweaks. One item still missing
is a new photo of our upgraded studio; I hope to
have that seen to shortly.

it was long. Well worth it though.
