Across the Sea of Madness: poetry/song booklet to be published
9/5/2007 11:08:45 AM
For my writing friends interested in how the music and songwriting is coming along.NOTE: I will post mp3's of my songs as soon as this booklet is published which will protect (beyond standard copyright) the lyrics used in my own vocal compositions.


Across the Sea of Madness: poetry booklet and CD to be published



For the sake of the few writer friends here at AD who I cherish and have been very supportive of me, here’s my “5 month plan” [Hopefully in less time than that!] The response was so overwhelmingly positive to my song lyrics I have renewed my recording efforts of my vocal songs and have already risen above my own expectations. 2 of my vocal songs are already recorded and mixed ready to burn to CD: complete with piano, voice and in one piece digital backing of drums, bass, keyboards.


2> Jazz Piano CD: August Ocean Overture completed: Release date: in October or sooner

Therefore, I am adding at least 2-3 of these songs to my purely solo piano release I mentioned called: August Ocean Overture”. Eventually I envision two CDs, one instrumental, one vocal songs; the reality check is the cost. Though I can easily record and burn two, it takes time and money to market and publish, so I’m better off with one, but this is the plan:


I will push ahead with my song demo CD titled: “Across the Sea of Madness as I record more vocals.


3> mp3 CD to have tracks posted at sites like: Soundclick, Lulu

To save $ I will release the piano album as an mp3 CD: IF, the mp3’s do justice to the piano recording. The fact is that mp3’s are fine with rock and electric, but lack quality when reproducing a real piano. Rather than wait for all the time and expense of marketing through the commercial sites, (which usually don’t do much for promoting jazz and instrumental) I will try this. In this way I hope to reserved money and time to keep recording my song demo “Across the Sea….”


4.> Poetry/song booklet: “Across the Sea of Madness” is finished

Most important to those here at AD: I will release ASAP my accompanying song booklet: “Across the Sea of Madness so that I can promote it, and have booklets to give at upcoming playing dates around Florida in October through the winter.

I will be playing in Ocala city area, Daytona Beach and Deland Florida this winter season in a few clubs I have contacted. I need the materials to have on display.

QUESTION: anyone here at AD know a reasonable POD publisher who will pubish color inserts in booklet format at a reasonable cost? My booklet has color photos that I hate to exclude at places like Lulu. I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks for reading.
