As you might already know thanks to the magic of the Intertubes, Arjen is hard at work in the Electric Castle putting together a new Ayreon. He tends to keep a low profile when he’s busy composing, but I wouldn’t want you to think that “nothing is happening” here. I keep bugging him to post little updates on his Twitter and Facebook accounts. But he honestly doesn’t like talking about himself online. (He thinks he’s boring — imagine that!) So it looks like it’s up to me to do the talking for him, for now, at least!
My goal with this section to give you an insider’s view of what goes on behind the scenes here at the Electric Castle, by posting frequent short updates. Photos, mini studio reports, answers to your questions, heck, I’ll be posting that meets my rigorous criteria for acceptable content (i.e., whatever “seems like a good idea at the time”). Because the album release is so far away, I’ll have to keep things kind of vague in the beginning; I don’t want to jinx things by talking about them here before they actually happen!
You can influence the topics here by asking questions or otherwise letting me know what you’d like to find out more about; just send an email (links are in the top menu) or respond directly in the comments below. I can’t promise that I’ll be able to follow through on everything or answer ALL questions, but we’ll do our best!
I’ll be back with the first installment tomorrow.
