Ian's day in the sun

Today, Ian recorded drum tracks for "Apart," "Agoraphobia," "Distance," "Lucy," "Hamlet," "Clapping Song" and "Filler." More drumming scheduled for tomorrow. Early mixdowns sound great. There is a question about the jazz piano line in "Clapping Song" and whether it is dissonant with Mark's melody. "Distance" is possibly finished.

The new Tonics album: where fun becomes something horrifying, like our recording schedule.

"Interpret your album within the art historical context." ----The way of the future.

"Future? Is there a lot of electronica involved?" ----In the post-apocalyptic future as prophesized by Sculpted Static's 2nd album, Sunny Ash, there are no computers. We anticipate a future with exotic and primitive instruments such as the guitar, piano, drums and voice.

Arta: "The theme of this album is agnosticism in every sense. Agnosticism and scepticism."
