General 2011-2012 update

2011 was a slower year on the Aeriae front, basically because I spent the majority of my time developing a cute Interactive Fiction game called Six about twin sisters playing hide and seek with their friends at their sixth birthday party. I entered the game in the 2011 Interactive Fiction Competition where it was voted into second place in the field of 38 games, an achievement I am really happy with.

Away from Aeriae, I probably co-produced at least 80 hours of improvised electronic music with a friend of mine over the course of the year in a duo act which we still have no agreed name for, and whose goals we are unsure of. But it's been a lot of fun, and creatively, it's been a new area for me to explore. The Aeriae material is exactingly created, and in some ways grows out of the exact opposite approach to that of improvisational music.

My second Aeriae album, Victris, is complete and ready to go, and has actually benefited from having even more time spent on it revisiting the production. That said, I’d been unsure of how to release it. I’m interested in the support gained by releasing through a label (unlike Hold R1, which I self-released) and though I can’t count unhatched chickens in too much detail in this post, the good news is that it looks like a label release will come about in the 2nd half of 2012.
