All the major challenges have come to an end to complete my first record. Today, all of the legal work was finished and the copyright acquired on the recordings and the artwork. Tomorrow I am going to register the ISRC codes for the individual tracks and start triple-checking the graphics before I send the whole package off for replication
The final cover art:
The release date has not been chosen yet, but I should be able to announce it by the end of the week.
Once all this settles down, I can start focusing on the artwork for the electronic EP and repeat the same process with paperwork. The Schumann record is now only three tracks away from completion, but I am going to hold off on releasing it until 2016.
In addition to all these updates, I have resumed a somewhat normal schedule so I am aiming to spend more of my time composing now, and focusing more on original music in my practice routine (I still work on at least two major classical pieces, usually one very difficult work and a smaller, easier one, or a collection of pieces and a few others in between). This means that there can be more new music in the near future, though I am looking forward to a break after starting and completing three albums in just over a year.
