Cornucopia of progress…

Posted by Rick Burnett on June 24th, 2009 filed in General News

There are a multitude of projects that are all moving at a very fast pace at the moment so instead of talking about them separately, I will talk about them together

Elektromigration Debut CD in Mixing:

After my last evening spent talking with Steve Archer, he told me “It’s time to release something” and with that  advice, and a few recommendations, these songs shall sit on my studio server no longer.  I’ve begun the long task of bouncing out the tracks, re-recording the vocals, making all the last minute changes to the songs, and everything in between. I have contracted with Dan of the Dark Clan to mix and master this release, as he has come highly recommended.  There are definitely a few months ahead of me of work and collaboration with another on one of the songs, but finally, it will be complete.  Which reminds me, I need to start collecting artistic examples for Vlad who is going to be doing the art work for the release.

Collaboration work with AnIon on a possible future EP or CD release:

Me and AnIon have begun a collaboration music project with some hard hitting tracks.  The best way I can describe these are take Combichrist, mix in some Wumpscut then maybe sprinkle on some IAMX and that is where my mind is at.  Not sure of the direction, but something should definitely come from this later in the year.  We’ve got about four tracks already in process and might bring something out to a local club soon to give it a demo listen on the big guns.

Round Two; Making Music for Video Games:

Once again I have submitted two tracks to a video game development company for some new game they are working on.  I am very happy with the tracks and the initial feedback is good.  Unfortunately, the chain of decisions is long and clouded, and the parent company has huge existing resources so we’ll see if anything comes of this.  If not, I will roll them into one of my other projects where I am doing more big dance material (think Underworld).

Scoring Work:

I’ve got three scoring projects coming up, however, I don’t have all the names of the projects yet (final names I should say).  Two of these are from my good friend Mike Chrisco who I’ve been working with for years.  They both sound fun so I look forward to working on them.  The third project is from one of the unfinished films from Adam Ross who passed away recently.  This is a 3D film and I’ve seen the rough cut of it, which looks great.  This film is VERY heavily influenced by the Twilight Zone which almost has me giddy to work on it.  I have no clue when this work will start as I am sure Adam’s estate and projects will have to go through a bit of restructuring and deal with legal issues to make sure everything is okay.

Relativity; Filming to begin shortly:

For the past few months I have been gathering the props for some of the scenes of the movie.  We are about to start shooting the first few scenes and I am ecstatic about this.  We have the first few set locations picked out and I am putting in an order for the last few pieces we need to get this started.  I have also submitted the project to IMDB and as soon as that is updated, I will begin putting up all other relevant information since a lot of the initial pre-production is mostly done.  I’d like to also announce that Andrew Comstock has begun the fabrication of some of the more complex props and we should see some stuff soon.

For some of the other scenes we will be holding some casting calls soon to fill out those rolls.  In addition, we’ve got a photoshoot coming soon and Micah Moore will be preparing some new promotion material.  We are also going to get Ben Spicher to do some on set photography and such.  The last big hurdle is finishing the camera construction.

iPhone Apps; More in Work:

I have sold a few copies of my iXposure app, but given the niche market that it fits, this does not surprise me.  As soon as my camera is done, I will be using it more and placing some sample footage online showing how it is used and such.  

I also have 4 other apps in development (at random stages).  I think two of them I will finish, the other two are more for test.  In addition, I’ve been contacted by a few people about working with them on some game apps.  Sounds like that would be a lot of fun if I get a bit of free time (haha).

Random Notes:

I’ve begun using Drop Box (https://www.getdropbox.com/referrals/NTEzMjI4NDg5) for sharing data with the people I am working with.  It works AMAZINGLY well.  It is like Rsync in a way, but basically files in particular folders go out to everyone who is using your dropbox (or you theirs).  I cannot stress enough how awesome this is.

If you use the link above (which is a referral from me) you get 250MB more for free (and I get 500MB for free) up to 6 GB more.  The default free account is 2GB.  I am paying for the 50GB since I have SO MANY files in there now (working with so many different people).

In other news, the studio is fully functional in its new location.  We have not moved to surround capability yet, but that is planned for later this year.  I am very happy with the layout and it is very conducive to productivity (as you can tell).  There are some acoustic issues I want to solve soon and am working with a company that creates custom acoustic absorbers to deal with it.

That’s about it.
