In the Interlude...

Winter’s coming to an end – a time I look forward to and dread at the same time. This year has been especially tough – only partly because all the work I have done on the album this winter has not yet resulted in a finished product, even as it’s consumed just about all of my creative time. Producing an album has turned out to be a much greater undertaking than I imagined, consuming more time for acquiring technical skills and making, selecting, and editing tracks than I ever anticipated, and so I must apologize to all you generous supporters who have been patiently waiting for your copy.

Be assured though, that nothing will keep me from completing this album, though I will be feeling awful over and over again for not getting it done and shipped sooner rather than later. In fact, I am so shocked by how badly I estimated the release date during the campaign, that I am leery of promising another date until we are closer to getting the final mixes done. I beg your patience with my inexperience, but I am cursed with the need to make this great, and with your kind indulgences, it will be so.

Warmly, Alex

      Thank you so much for your very heartfelt apology but none is needed. I am very much looking forward to hearing your music but I can wait, however long, for you to be satisfied with the finished product. Yes, perfection can sometime be a curse, but great art (and music) is never produced without it.

      Ditto to the others' comments. Looking forward to its completion, but only when you are ready. I'm sure you are also looking forward to having it finished!

      Hi. I agree with others. I’m guessing most of us are fully supportive of your creative process and not too worried re: timing. —Peter
