Remixed & Remastered

Hey folks,

So I’m working on a film/tv project that I can’t tell you much about; ya, the one I’ve been cryptically telling you about for like a month now. And I’m not trying to be mysterious…I literally can’t tell you about it until it drops. Plus I always think I’m good at being mysterious, and I am not. But for this project, I had some new mastering done to the tracks because I wanted them to be really good. And I liked them so much, that I decided to have Collections II and Our Dreams are Made of Rain remastered as well.

I’m very pleasantly surprised with how they turned out, and feel as if this is closer to my original vision for these melodies and atmospheres. So starting tonight at midnight, both these albums go free, for 24(ish) hours. Maybe more. Because I would like all of you who enjoy this music and bought the original albums, to be able to have the new editions for free. Each track is remixed and remastered, and while still retaining that darker recorded feel that I am fond of, they now stand out and grab you just a bit more. The download links are the same, but every track has been replaced.

So let’s do this. Can’t wait to share some new projects; in the meantime, if you guys could share my Facebook Page, that would be splendid. For every share one of posts gets, I post a free download code there for one of my latest albums. For every new Page like I get, I post two download codes…one for you, and one for the person you told to like the Page. 😉

Like My Page for free download codes here.

Thanks, all!

Water: Music for Meditation

New. These pieces are meant for reflection, for prayer, for meditation, for dreaming. They move only just enough. I hope you enjoy them.

And for the next week or so, they are free.

New Album: Our Dreams are Made of Rain

Hey everyone,

So…I’ve been using my Facebook Music Page so much, that I sort of forgot I had a website. For more up to date news, follow me here or here:

But while you’re here, I did just release a brand new album that I’m actually excited about, maybe for the first time ever. It started as a project composing for a film, and then turned into a very personal session of songwriting. So I’m very pleased to share with you, Our Dreams are Made of Rain.

(Cityscape is actually a free track within the album…to say thanks to all you guys.)

Thanks, guys.

Songs From the Last Couple Months

Well, looks like I’ve been totally neglecting this site in favor of my Facebook Music Page. Heresy, I know. That’s pretty much like feeding Skynet. But anyway, here’s some music from the last couple months. Not sure if these will go on an album or a second Collections EP.

And for something a little different…trying to win that contest…which I didn’t:

As always, thank you so much for listening.

Splendid.
Karl.


New Album Available & Released

The new album is up and ready for download. It’s called ‘The Morning We Wake’, and I hope it brings you all the joy an ambient chorus of guitars can. Available at:

http://karlverkade.bandcamp.com

This is a dual album, with 14 tracks spanning 80 minutes, with all tracks available individually. With the purchase of the full album, you also get a second album; it’s the entire first album on one track, with extra compositions that modulate each song into the next for 80 minutes of non-stop music. It should be on iTunes shortly, but there are some timing issues (like, 80 minute songs, I think). Thus far, I am liking Bandcamp’s independent vibe.

Recorded simply, using vintage techniques. Meaning, no post-effects; everything you hear was exactly what came out of the amp. I’m experimenting with doing things this way. Gives it more of a ‘live’ or ‘in the room with you’ feel.

Thank you so much for your support. I understand that this isn’t the greatest thing ever, but it was recorded using delay, which just so happens to actually be the greatest thing ever. I don’t know what’s going to happen with this music, if anything. But if nothing else, it’s really kept me alive this past year.

Splendid.
Karl.

Okay, okay…here’s the actual promo’s. Gotta keep a sense of humour about yourself. 😉
