Work on The Trinity Project is underway at last :-)

Finally, after several weeks of delays and distractions, all from outside distractions, David Wright and I have started work on the first Trinity album (to be called "Music For Angels"). We spent a very productive Tuesday evening in David's Planet Recording Studio where came up with 15 minutes of music which we've given the working title of "Lazy Heaven". This track has given us a really good start and already it has a definite overtone of space music with a lot feeling. It's safe to say that we're certainly pleased with the start we've made.

Our Tuesdays are something of regular event, which started some three years ago when David mastered the first Geigertek album "The Garden", and each week since we talk rubbish, drink coffee and cola (I drive so no alcohol!!!) and generally put the world to rights alongside listening to the the latest demos sent into AD Music. Always a laugh and quite often at David's expense. This week, aside from starting the album, nothing was different. There was some much need ribbing and amusement to begin with, (added and abetted by several cups of strong coffee!) because David somehow managed to totally screw up his studio MIDI settings - he continually bleated that "it's been over seven years since I last set up all the external synths for simultaneous multi-recording". Okay David ;-) But within a couple of hours (and after much swearing from DW with some rather spectacular one-liners on my part) we were up and running and by the Witching Hour, we had a pretty nice track with a great feel to it

For all Equipment Geek-Nerds, we were using the following hardware synthesizers:

Kurweil PC3x (nice bit of kit)
Korg 01/W (20 years old but still a great synth)

Only 2 soft synths were used and these were:

As always, all updates will be posted here as well as David Wright's personal blog which you can find HERE
