I thought it would be a good thing to let you know about my future plans.
I have been concentrating in the last touches of My Winter Storm Special Extended Edition.
A couple of days ago we finished the mixing of the song “Wisdom of Wind” in Helsinki with Jetro.
The song sounds really nice and relaxing now.
It still has a Chinese mood being a song specially composed by Jeff and Lisa for the Beijing Olympics Regatta. Unfortunately their invitation for me to record the song at that time came too late
But I am happy that I can use the song now in my own album and to have this great opportunity to do collaboration with Lisa and Jeff.
Also today I received ambient sounds that Mel created for the song “Enough”. I was blown away again. The man is so good in creating atmospheres and adding a touch of quality!
Is very challenging for me to do two songs that are so radically different for this special version of the album. I did enjoy a lot with both. And is a great training to start preparing the new album…
At the moment Maria is visiting us here in Kuusankoski. We were writing a song together, but also we had time to have fun with the snow. Finland received a lot of snow in the last days, so we needed to get out and enjoy a bit of it.
In few days I will have two Xmas concerts in Helsinki and Tampere and immediately after I will be travelling to Sweden to meet my old composer friends. We are going to work together some days in composing new songs for the forthcoming album of mine.
After Sweden, I’ll be in Germany continuing the same work with Alex and I will visit Doro at her Anniversary concert!
When this is all over, it will be time to have finally a little rest together with my family and enjoy a lovely Christmas time.
I just happen to be very delighted of an offer I received some time ago from a Polish film company to score 3 movies! It will be a trilogy. We are discussing about the co-operation now and I hope you’ll be able to hear the very first soundtrack of mine soon…
In the beginning of next year, I’ll be travelling around the globe finishing the songs for my new album and the pre-production should start (if everything goes fine) already in February.
So not long from now we will be having a NEW album in our hands!!!!!!!!!!!!
As done before, I’ll be sending you information how the album recordings are progressing and with whom I’ll be working this time
By the way, the album title has been already decided and once again it is the starting point for the stories in the songs.
Anyway, you will need to wait a bit longer to hear the name
I wish you relaxing holidays, merry Christmas and great New Year with lots of love and happiness.
