CreativePact 2012 epilogue - Lost Zoyd, Threshold
So, it took a few more months to finish, but finally the EP Threshold – the completion of the music of this CreativePact project – has been released to the world. The 6-tracker is available as a download from Bandcamp.
Obviously, some changes have occurred surrounding the release since the end of the Pact, primary of which is being released under the Lost Zoyd name. This decision came at the end of 2012, when it became obvious that continuing my old creative persona made more sense than creating an all new one.
Also, with all the focus on lyrics writing in the Pact, only 3 of the 6 tracks contained lyrics. The truth is that I was unable to complete lyrics for all those tracks that required them, so in order to actually release something I decided to mix those lyrical tracks with some ambient-noise pieces derived from the same original material.
And, you know, I'm really satisfied with the result. The final EP features an interesting lo-fi sound and the mixture of pop and ambient-noise tunes actually works to give the release its own atmosphere. Add to that, the main track of the release, 'NeverThere', hits exactly the lyrical tone I was aiming for.
