There's a new review of the album in French and it seems to be pretty positive.

Rathher modest attendance, about 200 people but really great atmosphere last night. So much so that Heather did an extra encore! I didn't perform this time but I got to chat to her both before and after the show. Overall a great concert, thank you Gerd!

I've just put a three-cam version of London Rain up - featuring shots by Gerd and another person who kindly sent their footage:

So, I actually put together a clip using my brother's footage - the quality is pretty good. The audio is a matrix of the soundboard recording and the audio from the video - to add some more space and audience noise :)

Oh, cool, thank you for letting me know about that. I had no idea, I have been that much up to date with everythig because I'm super busy at work and with my own music (both promotion of the new album and a totally new project).

Thank you E! Although I used stock photos as source material, the whole concept as well as all the editing was entirely mine and I have to say I'm really happy with the end result. I didn't necessarily want to do that myself but having to rely on other people is, well, time-consuming and I like to work fast. I mean, it's my third album within one year after all! :D

Nice song, nothing surprising or particularly special but very pleasant to listen to. And Heather's voice still sounds great.

The full video of our performance in Wrocław this April is now available on YouTube!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYXsbq ... 9eQtMuvQI4eNYq9P9XZL3p2Ty

The video is a bit rough but the audio is very high quality - it was recorded onto multitrack so we could really make sure the mix is right.

It's a fun show - our sound man Krzysztof Witos joins us on piano for a few tunes, a lot of the songs are augmented by additional pre-recorded tracks, so the arrangements are varied, despite the minimal line-up. We played 8 tracks from the album, one from my Glass Island project, one by my old band Lavender and several covers. No Heather songs this time but did Garbage and Roxette amongs others. Do check it out!

Here's a vid of Joanna, Marzena Słowik, myself and Tomasz Trojnar recording the harmonies for the final chorus of Pale Into Insignificance set to an acapella mix of that section:

I have been an ocassional user over the ears and it seems like the forums were always there. I am aware that movement has been pretty slow so I can totally understand you contemplating shutting them down. It would be sad, though.

I have to confess my imput has been minimal and has really now gone down to basically self promotion, I'm afraid. But I've continued posting since a couple of people (including your good self Gerd) have been pretty supportive. I do want to add I still quite regularly read other people posts, I just don't feel I have much to contribute.

Thanks guys, yeah I've been told that before. I have to say I don't think in terms of images while making (or listening to) music at all but it would be an interesting challenge to score a short film if someone made an offer :)

I've just released a new, intrumental Glass Island track called "Ghost Line". You can check it out here:

https://glassislandpoland.bandcamp.com/track/ghost-line

track info:

"Ghost Line" was written towards the end of the sessions for the first album but was not considered for it, as the tracklist had been firmly established by then. Neither did it feel like it fitted the direction I wanted to go on the second album (to be released next year) so the decision was made to release it as a standalone single.

It marks a double first for Glass Island - it's the project's first instrumental track as well as the first ever track published to feature myself playing the bass guitar.

Thank you so much for your lovely words.

I've been a Pink Floyd fan since I was a kid in the early 90s. Anmd yeah, the bells may bring High Hopes to mind but they signify something different in my song. Btw, the bells in HH are actually themselves a callback to a much earlier PF song called Fat Old Sun.
