Yes, Dreaming Through The Noise is coming first, for two reasons, one practical, and one philosophical, and they are related.
Firstly, as difficult as it's going to be to produce sheet music for Dreaming Through The Noise, it's easier than it will be for Inland Territory. I have tons of progress made on Inland Territory, which I worked on in 2009, but Dreaming Through The Noise seems less daunting! and as I've been working on it for the last four months, I'm sure I can get it done in 2011. The decision to do Warm Strangers in 2010 was based on the same logic. It was easier than the other two and something I could commit to in the time frame needed. I do have a "day job" running my own business to keep up with, too, unfortunately!
Secondly, after it became clear that I wasn't going to be able to finish Inland Territory in 2009, I came to the conclusion that the most authentic way to produce good Vienna Teng sheet music would be to evolve and develop the sheet music style gradually, progressing through Vienna's body of work in order, rather than trying to jump straight through to Inland Territory. The two songs you mention, Antebellum and Stray Italian Greyhound, are among the most straightforward songs on the Inland Territory album. Some of the others are going to involve a lot more in the way of meaningful and non-trivial decisions which will need to be made! St. Steven's Cross, for example, is most definitely a masterpiece, but what to do with it for sheet music? I have a pretty good idea, and I have a lot of it done, as I do for Radio, Kansas, The Last Snowfall, and other songs where I felt like I got stuck in the middle when I was working on them in 2009. But I am confident that I will be able to finish them and confidently create GOOD and authoritative sheet music for these songs once I'm done with the evolution of sheet music through the Dreaming Through The Noise era. I'll be more experienced at what I'm doing, and I'll be able to produce sheet music consistent with the decisions that I'm now making (in consultation with Vienna) for the other albums. I'd love to release Antebellum and Stray Italian Greyhound now, but the economics (and the legal approvals) of printing books are such that they will wait for the whole book to come out; and I don't have time to put the finishing touches on them while I'm working on Dreaming Through The Noise anyway.
So in summary, I hope the end result will be worth the wait.
I'm really excited to be bringing out sheet music for Dreaming Through The Noise this year; which is an amazing album!
