Today we met Dominique Ventura who will do the artwork for the CDs and booklets. Dominique is an artist and graphic designer with wonderful skills in drawing with pen and brush. The artwork will include psychedelic elements from the 70s as well as modern elements and symbols. We hope to see first results by the end of this month.

Success! Today was a great step forward for the SAM project. After selecting about 160 minutes from the 11 hours studio recordings, we edited the selected tracks, mixed and finalized them. The result is 36 wonderful pieces of improvised music. For most of them you will not recognize that we never wrote a note, never talked about what comes next, never had a clue of what will happen when we hit the record-button…
It will take a while to do the artwork for the release, to organize all the things that must be organized to release a record. But stay tuned. We predict end of July…
