Happy Lunar New Year, Dragons!
I have just returned home after an incredible journey in the Middle East. I saw some cool sites, met some great people, and ate a lot of chickpea-based dishes. Looking back, 2011 was one heck of a year.
Emergency Songs and its aftermath(pun sorta intended) dominated most of the year for me. The album was met with more international critical acclaim than I could keep up with. It was quite overwhelming really. Then over the summer, what was intended to be a couple of small performances of the album turned into a series of concerts all over the city.
Somewhere in there, I took a little time to reflect and celebrate 10 years of creating concept albums. With the help of the FMA and Robert Nagle, there was a brilliant retrospective and in-depth interview published online.
Looking forward, I plan to start working on a new concept album in the coming months. I’m in the very early planning stages right now but check this blog for more details and updates soon!
