New Cover for “Flight of the Atom Bee”

I decided to re-approach the cover art for Flight of the Atom Bee, my first release ever. I originally purchased the rights to this photo from an Italian photography husband and wife team when I first released the album.

I was too chicken to show the nipple on its release and my choice of fonts was wrong. And the Bee was too small.

For a few years, I used a completely different image.

While I love the concept here and the font treatment, the illustration itself, based on a photograph I took, isn’t quite up to par.

So I decided to resurrect the original image, free the nipple and rethink the fonts and layout. I’m very happy with the result.

You can listen to and buy Flight of the Atom Bee, a technicolor journey through the, bold, bright, and beautiful realms of analog synthesis, here.

[video] Winter Blue

Created from a seven-and-a-half hour hi-res video made available by Channel NRK2, on the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation. I felt it would be perfect for “winter blue,” from the album “the seasons [remixed/remastered].” Finally got around to doing the edits. Yes, very happy with it!

Watch full-screen with a good sound system!

From the NRK2 website: Friday November 27th, over 1,2 million Norwegians watched parts of «Bergensbanen» on NRK2. The longest documentary ever? At least the longest we have made, almost 7 1/2 hours, showing every minute of the scenic train ride between Bergen on the Norwegian west coast, crossing the mountains to the capital of Oslo.

Rachel Efron, for whose work I cannot overstate my admiration, asked me to open for her this coming Friday, May 13, in downtown Oakland.

Rachel is songwriting chanteuse without peer: her songs are melodic, smart, haunting, perfectly crafted, hopelessly romantic. I fall in love with her every time I see her play. I am not alone.
