So, here's the deal -- I'm working on getting my new website built.
I'll explain this upcoming project better later.
time being, I've posted my project journal below -- it fairly well says
whats going on.

Recorded Slow-Air Set with Thane last Wednesday 11Feb2009.
few weeks before while taking a walk & talking with
artist-friend Smurphy, she suggested that I make
Building Fire and then get with DJ/mixer-types
and have the album material re-worked as a techno/electronica album in
the style of MBennet/MSaul/Blake/etc.
I have thought about this, quite like the idea, and everyone
I have mentioned it to since have given very positive responses.
During this week I spoke with Blake/Sonic Impulse about doing this
work, he’d like to be on board but won’t have time
months – so it’s still possible when I get to that
Blake suggested that I talk w/ Ross Watt (Scotland) who approached
Blake about re-mixing his album. I had messaged Muir in the
or two before and he said he doesn’t have quite enough skill
do this work.
Current working title is “Build Another Fire”, have
also considered “Building More Fire”.
All of these seem to lack
commercial-pop, particularly for the
electronica/re-mix/house/DJ/techno genre -– not that
that familiar with it ... I'm working on it, Martyn, I'm working on it.
(I contacted Blake about
-- as I recall he said he was rather interested & willing to
contribute but didn't have time, at
least for the short term, and suggested that I contact Ross in Scotland
who'd contacted him about further mixing the Sonic Impulse material.
Per Blake's suggestion, I contacted Ross and he expressed

In the last day or two I’ve thought the (perhaps working)
album might be "ElectriFire" –- a play on words of
“fire”. (Note that this
“electri(c)” for “electronica”
“electro” as to not be confused with the music
“electro”.) Much of the idea about this
is that the analogue of my pipes and other acoustic instruments I will
be recording being the fire, and the digital/electronica/techno/DJ/etc
being the electricity.
best knowledge the compositions released on this album are traditional
&/or in the public domain.
