Re: Sheet Music Status topic

Although I haven't updated this status in many months... FYI, as of November/December 2014, the Inland Territory sheet music is completed in draft form (not publicly available, but it exists on my computer and has been sent to Vienna), according to the instrumentation Vienna and I tentatively agreed...

I'm going, plus my girlfriend, and I know of at least two others I've connected with on Facebook who are going!

Re: Sheet Music Status topic

I've finally cracked the code of the middle (Spanish-language) section of No Gringo . :D I don't mean the words--those are in the liner notes (and I studied Spanish anyway). No, the challenge with No Gringo is how to get the feel of the accompaniment to be faithful to the song, when making piano-onl...

Re: Non-musical mood sounds in Vienna's music

Wow, the door latch sound is so subtle! Maybe it was not intentional, but I think a lot of sounds on albums produced by Alex are of non-musical-instrument origin, and about all of them deliberate. The crackling of a record player provides the rhythm for "The Last Snowfall" and evokes nost...

Re: Sheet Music Status topic

After a long and challenging day of work on them, Radio and Watershed are now complete, ready to send to Vienna for review after one more round of playability editing.

Non-musical mood sounds in Vienna's music

So I'm editing the sheet music for Watershed right now... which means I'm listening carefully and closely to the album recording, and at approximately 1 minute and 45 seconds into the song, right after the words "creep into your bed",... I'm hearing what sounds like the click of the latch ...

Re: Paul/The Man in Blue

I had the pleasure of meeting Paul on several occasions. The first few were at shows at some of my regular haunts (San Diego, where I live, Los Angeles, Schuba's Tavern in Chicago), during the years when he was a fixture at Vienna's shows. He usually arrived early, and I was aware that Vienna was gr...

Re: Sheet Music Status topic

Well, a year later, I've finally updated the status list at the top of this thread... to reflect the fact that the Dreaming Through The Noise sheet music is done and published and for sale. If this comes as a surprise to anyone reading this, it's not too late: go buy it! I've been working on Inland ...

Re: Sheet Music Status topic

I have bought all three available songbooks and they're fantastic! Thank you so much! Just wondering, what is the update on Inland Territory? I will be working on the Inland Territory songbook again soon. I actually did most of the work for it back in 2009, but Vienna's songwriting on that album is...

Why was Augustine never promoted as a radio single?

Good afternoon warm strangers, I've just uploaded my whole music collection to a music player (actually a virtual music player, Google Music a.k.a. Google Play Music, but that's besides the point),... and so now I have the ability to have a random shuffle of all the music I personally own... I'm sur...

So, within the past couple weeks ago I worked on City Hall a lot, and, more or less finished that (it needs editing now).... And now I worked on Recessional a lot last week and this week, and more or less finished it too (it needs editing now too)... So I don't know about the rest of you, but I am n...
