Hello again.

OK, it’s still very much a work in progress but hey; Rome wasn’t built in a day. Let me present the brand new, all improved alucidnation portal on the web.

The old site was hand-coded in HTML and after seven or eight years of faithful service was starting to fall over and look a bit tired.

The trailblazer shopping system was originally built in 2004 and wasn’t playing ball either, so it was time to employ the services of Stu at Edit Studios to create a future-proof system that brings everything bang up to date.

I’ve been working hard in whatever spare time I’ve had since March last year to attempt to tutor myself in the rather complex new software and also design the look and feel of the user interface.

The site’s still under construction, and I’ll be adding more content as and when I have the time and the inclination, but in the meantime, enjoy what’s here!!

I’ve yet to add the all important ‘history’ section where you can marvel at how round my head was when I was a wee lad, and also the ‘discography’ section which’ll take me some time to populate, but I hope to sort out the missing pieces as soon as I can. Within reason.

Oh, and by the way, to the uninitiated, the main menu is reached by clicking on that icon at the top left of each page – three horizontal lines. Trendy, eh?

Pledgemusic Vinyl Campaign

I’ve always loved buying music on vinyl. It sounds better, looks better and, well –  it’s just got that nostalgic thing about it, hasn’t it.

It’s been quite some time since I’ve released anything on the plastic fantastic, but it’s about time I changed that, don’t you reckon?

In conjunction with PledgeMusic, I’m attempting to fund a limited vinyl edition of a new release, containing primarily ambient work. As it stands, I can’t really afford to fund the whole project off my own bat, so I guess I’m asking you for a leg-up.

Titled ‘More Sounds to Sleep to’, it’ll be beautifully packaged with my usual standard of artwork, and there are various exclusives to be had in addition to the vinyl itself.

Rather than me waffle on at length about this, it’s probably best if you wander over to my PledgeMusic site and possibly get involved.As you already know, your support is always appreciated!

There’s also a scrapbook link here which I’ll keep updated with news on this project.

Brand New Shop

The whole shopping system has been upgraded and modified to allow you to set up your own account, which will hopefully make return visits less of an arduous process.

Also, I’ve extended all teaser tracks to on average 1m45s, which’ll hopefully give you a better idea of how each track develops and grows.

Scrapbook

The new scrapbook replaces what was the old news and events pages.

It’s akin to a blog; I’ll post up information regarding new releases, events and other fascinating bits of information that will either blow your mind or bore you shitless.

If you move your eyeballs to the right, you’ll spot some links to some pearls of wisdom that I’ve already penned.
