Aha it is 12" and it is thick, should have used a comma
So I had released 2 albums Oddysey Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 only digitally, and I thought they would be perfect for vinyl, especially lathe cut which can have a little more noise than pressed ones. The music is Ambient/Soundtrack/Scifi style and so the noise of the vinyl wouldn’t be an issue it would even be a good addition I thought.
I searched for someone making lathe cut specifically and in Canada, also because with lathe cut each copy is done by hand and so it is possible to get very small runs compared to pressed factories that have a minimum of 100 copies. And in Canada because I’m here so it would be better to get it locally.
So I found Red Spade Records, https://www.redspaderecords.com/, which is run by Robyn Raymond, she did a really good job, I love the clear vinyl and the thickness of it. I was looking for the clear colour because I thought it looked more spacey and it would match the album.
Also regarding the music itself, I wrote the songs in 2020, and I suppose being more inside influenced my inspiration. It’s quite different from my previous album Genesis/ReGenesis, this time there is no drums at all and it is more deep I think.
Regarding the process, all the songs are done in software, but I improvised some of the melodies first while playing on my homemade synthesizers, that might be also explaining why it is so different than before.
