It’s been about 6 weeks since our last update on March 14th. At that point we were about 2 weeks away from launching the live show. Teams of people were pulling 20 hour days to get everything prepared for the big show on March 29th in Miami. It was the most grueling yet rewarding times of our careers… but in the end… the show was a big success and came out even better than we imagined! People saw things that they have never seen in a live show before. It was really amazing… and we’re working to take the show on the road to the rest of world! More details coming within the next few months.
Some quotes from press/media…
“The most electrifying performance during Miami Music Week!”
“A spectacle that will be remembered as the catalyst to the future of electronic dance music.”
“Electronic Opus created a sensory-stimulating experience that fully immersed the audience in a union of music’s most magical elements.”
“Emotional, raw, and simply brilliant, the compositions had the audience alternating between standing ovations, full-on dance party, and jaw-dropping awe.”
“Regardless of genre preference, this legendary performance was a privilege to experience and left no doubt that electronic dance music will one day grace the stages of Broadway.”
Please take a moment to check out this review!
After the show we were all so exhausted that after 6 months of working on EO and pouring every bit of emotion an energy into it every day… we decided to take a much deserved week off.
Everything was going so fast that we wanted to take a breather to step away and recharge our batteries… and ensure that the absolute highest quality for the album would be achieved. We are HUGE perfectionists and we would never want to put out an album that we weren’t 100% satisfied with.
Over the past few weeks we’ve completed the music and mixing for the album. Now we are in the middle of printing stems and then getting them off to mastering. The incredible Emily Lazar will be mastering the album! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emily_Lazar)
Emily is a Grammy award winning mastering engineer who has worked on many of BT’s albums as well as Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Foo Fighters, Lou Reed, Barbra Streisand, Björk, Moby, Garbage, Sonic Youth, Sinéad O’Connor, Tiesto, Depeche Mode, The Velvet Underground, Morgan Page, John Mayer, Third Eye Blind, The All American Rejects, The Prodigy, Morrissey, Vampire Weekend, Destiny’s Child and hundreds more!
We predict that the album will be ready for manufacturing by the end of May. Our goal is to first release the album digitally to everyone on Kickstarter as soon as it’s finished… then we will start immediately working on the rest of the digital rewards as the physical rewards are being sent out. All of the digital rewards will be going through Humble Bundle. So you’ll be able to log into your download page at any time as it becomes populated with your digital content (and of course, we’ll be sending out updates as this happens).
Now… we’d like to share a trailer with you! You are the first people in the world to be seeing this! It’s partly the reason we haven’t given any updates over the past few weeks… we wanted this to be finished so we had something to show you… and what your generosity and faith has helped to create!
So here it is… the first official show trailer for Electronic Opus!
