Some fun facts about "Interlocutor", the forthcoming fifth album by the 21st Century Monads.
1. Interlocutor consists of twelve songs.
2. It is exactly 44.4 minutes long. How did that happen??? (This is not counting pauses introduced by cd players as tracks change.)
3. It is the second album on which our fourth member, the Infinite Progression, plays the drums.
4. She also sings on some of the songs on this album.
5. One of the songs for this album was first drafted about 9 years ago, but wasn't recorded until last year.
6. We began recording this album sometime early 2011. Recording finished sometime around May 2013.
7. The songs collectively take up a little over 50 gigabytes of hard drive space. Isn't that nuts?
8. As always, we will be releasing free .mp3, .m4a, and .ogg versions of the songs sequentially, on a mostly weekly schedule.
9. We will be "selling" the whole album again the same way we did last time, that is, "customers" can purchase this album by making a donation to the charity of their choice. The files our "customers" will receive will be 16 bit 44.1 khz files, i.e., the standard compact disc format. More details will be provided later on this blog.
10. It is our best album to date. We think you will really enjoy it.
