Well, tomorrow I begin recording the debut Severed Fifth album; Denied By Reign. This is an album that has been in the works for a long time, and primary recording begins tomorrow and finishes on Wednesday. This will involve eight songs and all of the tracking and production for all of the instruments – safe to say…its gonna be a long session!
What this will result in is the first chunk of content that can be used to push Severed Fifth forward as a campaign and as an experiement in elements of free culture. It will be this content that will be used to try and push the concept of free culture, and to explore the many questions I have about how to be successful as a free culture musician. I hope that irrespective of whether each person reading this likes the music, the message behind Denied By Reign and the wider Severed Fifth project will answer some of the questions we are faced with when discussing and advocating a free culture music industry. It is an exciting time, and I can’t wait to see just what is possible with this debut release.
