THE PALLAS '2020 VISION' PROJECT
1. THE 'CHILL' ALBUM
2. THE MAIN ALBUM
3 THE RARITIES AND COLLABORATIONS ALBUM
ALBUM 1: The 'Chill' Album - I'M STILL COMPILING THIS PAGE
1. To release something totally out of the blue, different and unexpected to start people talking about the band again well in advance of the tour, possibly released at the same time as tour dates are announced. Ideally I'd like to aim for before XMAS but if not to have a slection of tracks available to have promo videos to get advance sales from December onwards.
No other band in our genre has done anything remotely like this and the impact will be significant to raising the band's social media profile. A series of videos would be released at intervals to maintain interest.
2. To generate income to fund any expenses for the production of the main album, such as possible studio time to record essential overdubs etc, and to subsidise the tour.
Ambient and orchestral re-versioning of existing known tracks.
Some suggested tracks
STRANGER ON THE EDGE OF TIME
Niall is already working on a re-versioning of this at the moment, this is a work in progress sketch video to part of the original track.
As this is very much a sequenced track I'm making the bold assumption it is relatively simple to re-version
FRAGMENTS OF THE SUN - If not to be on main album
There is a full multitrack of this, unfortunately, we don't appear to have the additional choir recordings, though I guess that can effectively be reproduced to give same sonic effect without the actual words. If this is not slated to go on the main album it could easily sit well on this one too. There is also the start of The Big Bang on CATC that could act as a prelude to this track.
Fragments Choir Version:
BLOOD AND ROSES - If not to be on main album
There is a multitrack of this, and if not to go on the main album it could make be built up a bit with some lushness
Some loops I did many years ago .... I've longtime thought it would be great to do ambient/loop based derivatives of certain tracks, being a fan of Bryan Eno and I made these for fun in the past.
CATC INTRO LOOP
CATC No Vocals edit:
BDOS INTRO LOOP
There's quite an ambient + orchestral vibe to the early studio/demo version of this, the ambient parts are available on multitrack
THE LAST ANGEL
There are so many aspects of this track that could be expanded, if Pandy's vocals are available as separate files this could be awesome!
This is a long meditative loop I made from an early version. I have it as an aiff but cannot find the aiff I derived it from, as I made it freehand this loop may have timing issues and may not be useable as a base for putting things on top of
Ronnie did an edit of the end of the final track over my loop to form a background to a menu on the Moment To Moment DVD, though, for a longer version that would come in much later on, I guess
This is an early demo, it also morphed into the Xmas Video below, this lends itself to orchestration
