Sorry for the long absence, but I’ve been pretty busy working on the last track for the upcoming CD. As promised, it will indeed be epic; the general outline of the song is now a little under 27 minutes long. It may be a bit longer than that when the dust settles, but the bulk of the writing is pretty much done. I’m enjoying the work I’m doing on this (crazy ambitious) work, but I’m also looking forward to hearing it in its completion.
I just wanted to update everyone on where we are with this last track: as hinted at in our May 25 post, this last track will indeed be an epic one. I’ve been working on its various parts, and although I’m currently hovering around the 14 minute mark, it doesn’t feel like it’s quite ready to end just yet.
Looks like this one’s going to be a long one…
Chris Rupert of Falling Edge
After a brief studio hiatus, we tracked the drums for another song for the next Falling Edge release this past week. Rob was on target on Wednesday night, and if it weren’t for a minor technical issue, would’ve have pretty much nailed this one in one take. The piece is an as yet untitled instrumental.
On the writing front, Chris has embarked on what may be the last song on this album. The current plan is to write an extended (read: 20 minutes or so) song, but this isn’t set in stone, and we’ll have to see how things pan out.
Here’s a couple of photos from the Wednesday night session:
Just a quick heads up that ProgCore Radio will be featuring FE3 in its entirety with an interview and song-by-song discussion with Chris Rupert this Friday at 8PM EST. Chris will be offering insight into all of the songs on the album, as well as a short interview with host Jorge Rittatore.
In recording news, Chris completed all the keyboard parts for Arcane Knowledge late last week, and is nearly finished writing another song for the next album.
An interview with Chris Rupert and Rob Kovar will be featured tonight on La Villa Strangiato, CHUO 89.1 FM’s weekly progressive rock radio show, hosted by Gregory Kampf:
“Into the second half, we enter into conversation with Chris Rupert and Robert Kovar, the dynamic duo behind Chatham’s own progrock torchbearers Falling Edge. The band recently issued its third studio album Fe3, and we’ll be featuring a 10-minute excerpt from that very record to complement the interview…”
The show runs from 7:30 – 9PM EST and can always be live streamed via the station’s website. Hope to see you there.
