There was an itch I just had to scratch. An urge to record an ambient drone set. Here is what became.

The full Neuron Dreamtime discography is now available via Bandcamp and embedded in our own Music page!
Enjoy the hours upon hours of music!

Top news:
Today saw the 6th anniversary re-release of I Am My Own Mushroom. Free to download from the Bandcamp page.
We will be re-releasing the other three LPs and the first two Recollective EPs as free downloads in the not so distant future.
This way the entire Neuron Dreamtime discography can be found in one place, can be embedded nicely onto our /music page, and can be shared with ease.

In other news:
Through the Zero Cliff MusicSubmit campaign we were picked to join an alternative music compilation. We get to submit one song for this experiment run by DJ Mac and the wonderful folks at Woody Radio.
No decision yet as to what song. No release date set. More info to come.

Here’s Tom with the weather.

The new album has been out for a couple weeks now and there is something else being shared with fans and supporters who have contacted us or made an effort to help promote what we do. This other thing is a 10 song successor to Zero Cliff and is promptly titled The Ledge Beyond The Edge. It’s intended as a kind of semi-promotional bonus and was created while we were still putting the final touches on ZC. Those final stages were rather strenuous to us and sometimes we just felt like we had to put it on hold and work on some other stuff for a little bit. This is what became of those little bits. It could technically be considered a B-sides or a compilation of songs that didn’t make it to the new album as the title track Zero Cliff replaced Vitriol Syndrome – the final track on The Ledge Beyond The Edge – and despite all this The Ledge holds its own and feels like a complete project of organic quality.

Now in the aftermath and promotion of Zero Cliff we find ourselves a few steps closer to putting on a live show. Hopefully we’ll have some more detailed news on this in the coming months. Until then check out our Soundcloud page to hear a preview of one of the tracks from The Ledge performed live in the studio. A taste of things to come.

Also in the works is some soundtrack work which we hope to share sometime in the fall and re-releases of the Neuron Dreamtime back catalogue onto Bandcamp.

Exciting times, stay tuned!

Well, it’s done.
The new album is no longer being tweaked or mastered.
The time has come to allow the gears of publication and CD replication to revolve.
We stand at the edge of the cliff, setting up the reception and establishing the best angle of view.
Once all that is said and done we’ll pull back the binary curtain and have a party.
We’ll remember those who didn’t make the journey and dream of those who are yet on their way.
Most of all we’ll have grown and added a bit of our spice to the collective flavor.
The winds are calming.
The wait is almost over.

In just a few days from writing this I will have quit my uninspiring and draining day-job to focus on my art and the few important projects I’ve almost finished. Soon after I will be taking commissions for pieces ranging from card sizes up to 9′ x 12′ canvas backdrop, all in the style of my pen and ink pieces. My wife  and I will also be taking commissions for our Mad-Hatter style hats like the one I wore at our Mad Tea Party. (See neuron-dreamtime.deviantart.com then Gallery>Photography)

The plans are well into play and all is coming to a head. The new album is looking mighty fine, still some tweaks left before its all wrapped up, my time with it as producer has taken a backseat for a week or two as I prepared to leave the restaurant I’ve worked at for five years.

I know that the life of an artist is hard as far as making a living, even making ends meet, but I feel deep down that this is the right move. I see it like this, I can either stay where I’m at and complain about it ever increasingly or I can do something about it and make the change. It’s an easy choice that I maybe should have made sooner. I know I will be happier putting my time into work I love for people who like the work I do and would appreciate a custom piece or who listen to the music and buy the albums. Instead of doing work I don’t much care for for people who are ungrateful and unappreciative for the meal and service provided to them. There are already a couple preemptive commissions for friends lined up so I can get into the swing of things. I also have the bills covered for a month and have some basic outdoor work lined up for the summer. A summer I will be able to enjoy with the wife, family, and friends.

To all who read this, to all who will support and do support the arts and their practitioners
my sincere and humble thank you
