The last few days

Well, I've been busy at work with a new digitising/encoding box by a company Digital Rapids. We're evaluating it this week and trying to 'break' it basically! It's a powerful Dual Processor PC (3.6GHz per processor) with a nice 500GB hard drive array for capture of multiple audio and video streams in various streaming and digital TV formats. But a 50 second HD capture to AVI was 5GB in size - bring on more drives......
Apart from that, I'm still preparing my music for the Wrolcaw Industrial Music Festival using mainly Reason 3 and a couple of Max objects which mangle audio (thanks Dr. Essl!).
Then there's the album-in-progress for the Italian label 'ABM' mentioned below. Also, I've been offered a digital distribution deal, which means inputting a ton of metadata into an Excel sheet and going through all of the tracks I've released so far in order to give them ISRC codes. Phew!!

Tomorrow I'm going to meet Till from Gerechtigkeits Liga - we're thinking about a trip to the USA for gigging but it needs a lot of planning.

This lunchtime I met Deek Deekster and we did a mini tour of Denmark Street guitar shops. One shop had a broken guitar which used to belong to somebody famous....it was signed by Eric Clapton, John Lennon and a multitude of others and was on sale for 20,000 GBP!
