• New Album Update

    The next Partition 36 album, which has been in production for about a year and a half, now has a title: Waveforms. As I mentioned on Facebook a few weeks ago, it looks like Waveforms is really close to being finished, too. Close enough, in fact, that I feel comfortable in saying that it should be released in about two months.

    The new album will probably have 12 tracks, and similar to 63, it will be a mix of synthpop, industrial, and trance music, as well as some newer styles that I’ve been playing with.

    In case you’re curious, the current track list is as follows:

    1. Ending Dreams
    2. The Mainframe
    3. Excessive Exposure
    4. Mr. Robinson
    5. Awaken
    6. Tell Me What You’d Do
    7. The Power Core
    8. Dreams
    9. Extreme Terror (Album Version)
    10. An Afternoon River
    11. ?????
    12. Colorado

    And here is the album artwork (click it for the full-sized version):

  • Project Announcements

    There hasn’t been much news lately, but that’s mostly because I’ve been busy working a few different projects.

    The first is actually a mod for the original Doom that I call “Doom Remastered”.  It takes the original soundtrack and completely re-records it, giving it a much-needed refresh.  But, it also stays true to the original music by not taking any liberties with sound choices (i.e., a part that used to be played on a string ensemble sound still uses a string ensemble).  It’s about 95% finished, with me only needing to finish tweaking the tracks until they sound good.  When it’s finished I’ll release it both as the mod (a PK3 compatible with both Doomsday and ZDoom-derivatives for those who know what those are), and as a normal album for those who don’t play Doom.  The expected release date is about two weeks from now.

    Besides the mod, I’ve also been working on a new album!  There’s not much I want to say about it right now except that I’ve got a large pool of songs that I’m pulling from, and so it’s already more than halfway done.  But, not all of the songs I’m working with will be going on the new album.  Instead, what I’ve decided to do is release whatever is left over on a new EP.  I’m planning to have both of them out by mid to late summer, so keep checking back for progress updates!


  • 63 Remix Project, new song uploaded to SoundCloud, and Bandcamp Page

    Whoa, how in the heck did I forget to mention this here?  Partition 36 is now on Bandcamp, where you can listen to a few albums, and purchase some of the newer ones.  The URL is partition36.bandcamp.com so be sure to drop by and check it out.

    Next, the 63 Remix Project is finished!  Actually, it was finished in June and even announced on Facebook, so again, I have no idea how I forgot to mention it here.  Oh well, drop by the page and check it out!  A HUGE thanks to the contributors for their awesome remixes.

    Lastly, here’s a brand new song I finished just tonight.  I’m not sure if it’s going to be on the new EP or the new album (yep, new stuff coming up) yet, but for now, you can listen to it online.  Enjoy!


  • Blog now up! Sorta…

    If you haven’t noticed, the Tumblr-based Partition 36 blog is no more. From here on out you can instead expect the blog to exist here, directly on the Partition 36 site. There aren’t any posts yet, but keep an eye out on the blog page for some to show up soon.

    Oh, and here’s the address!  http://www.partition36.com/blog/


  • Galleries and Links

    The Galleries page is back up, and you can view the photo shoot that was recently completed for the new album, 63.  A big thanks to Downtown Photography for doing these awesome pictures!

    I’ve also (finally) gotten the Links page back up.  Hey, ever site needs a Links page, right?

    …right?


  • 63 Released

    Great news, 63 has been released! You can listen to the entire album online, as well as download it in MP3 for FLAC format, from its album page.  There’s also a write up that talks about each track on the Partition 36 blog.  You can find that write up here.

    Be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter!


  • Tentative Release Date for 63

    The tentative release date for the next Partition 36 album, 63, has been set for December 5th of this year – just in time for my birthday!  As I’ve mentioned in my blog from time to time, 63 will be a two-disc set.  Disc one will be available for purchase (still working out where and how) and will make up the album proper.  Disc two will be completely free and will be made up of remixes of songs from disc one.  As usual, everything will be licensed under a Creative Commons license.

    Stay tuned to the website, the Facebook page, and the blog for more info!


  • Website is back up

    The website is back up and has been redesigned! There is also a new “About/FAQ” page that I suggest checking out, and the Equipment page has been updated slightly.

    Enjoy and be sure to pass the page along to others!


  • Partition 36 Website Redesign

    The Partition 36 website is undergoing a redesign!  Things should now move faster and be easier to navigate.  Please give me a few days to fix everything up.  In the meantime, why not listen to some Partition 36 on YouTube or follow me on Twitter?
