BETWEEN THE SUN & THE MOON available digitally on iTunes
Thankful for all the experiences in the last year. 9 months of studio recording at TAYLOR Studios, the full rock band vibe with solo performances & with Rhinocerotic, and all the great in between time- InBetween the Sun & the Moon. Special thanks to Jeff Taylor, Andy Kolp, Liza Korry, and Dave Jordan for loaning me the dough to get these tunes copyrighted. A new studio setup is primed for this next year, a new website and merchandising is in the works, and live shows are being discussed. Sign on to the mailing list & find me on Twitter or Facebook. Keep in touch. I can promise the music and accompanying carnival will delight and amuse in this next decade. TPK

I'm sitting and writing on a sunny warm November day in Kansas listening to leaf blowers and drinking a Guinness. It has been 9 months, 9 full moons wrapped into a song called '9 Sticks' in a CD full of dark imagery with light and love in the equidistance. The artwork is complete, CD photos crowned, song order set. Initially this sonic journey was to be released one year ago, due to a change in production and producers the CD became more involved and more amazing in depth and sound quality. Five songs became six, new imagery developed, and new approaches to marketing and the release of the music planned, 'Between the Sun & the Moon' is now between final mixdown and mastering. The decision has been made to change the release date to 1/1/11. All will be revealed soon...

Tall Tales & Short Stories
TIM KORRY Audio Recording Blog Week 23 TAYLOR Studios 2010
As I crunch through the brown grass, the wicked whipping wind dances around the decay of summer’s warmth and devotion. Smelling the disintegrating fall leaves reminds me of how long the recording of Between the Sun and the Moon has endured. What was once the warm green blooming spring has now become shivery, solemn, and still. The final mixing and mastering phase will begin tonight and continue throughout the Halloween weekend. Jeff Taylor and Andy Kolp will be adjusting the sonic landscapes and introducing the proper amount of magic and focus.
I will meet with artist John Hansen to talk about the cover art tonight. His work is fantastic, dark, and dreamy…. just the right combination to represent the music on this CD. My new fascination with goth and steampunk fashion is beginning to show and will probably reflect in the rapidly approaching photo shoot. A new logo is in the process of being designed that centers around the Kanji dragonfly symbol. The dragonfly was chosen because it symbolizes depth of character, power and poise, defeat of self created illusions, living in the present, and the opening of one’s eyes. This symbolizes a shift in the direction of the music and the musician.

EQUAL NIGHT- TIM KORRY Audio Recording Blog Week 22
I started this week’s blog under the full harvest moon and during the Autumnal Equinox, a strange and powerful moon. The skies are blue, there is a slight chill in the air, and leaves are beginning to change and spin to the earth. The studio experience strangely appeared to follow right along with the shift in seasons. This adventure began last spring, the songs and accompanying experiences advanced throughout the summer, and the final creation will be ready for harvest within weeks.
More texture was added to the crowning song with a melodic ringing guitar track gliding over the choruses and waves of tribal drumming. TAYLOR Studios advised in arranging some the previously recorded pre-production symphonic lines. A little smoothing out was needed while still maintaining the songs simplicity and vibe. The following studio session resulted in a trippy reversed reverb guitar layer affixed to the final verse in “Under a Wishing Well”. Impromptu vocals sprang up out of this session as well.
I am looking forward to a much-needed vacation to St. Augustine, FL as this project comes within weeks of a finale. Ultimate production decisions will begin the second week of October. We will also be discussing the forthcoming music video. As the sun lights the moon and the moon pulls the tide, we are pulled another step closer to the light at the end of the tunnel. Between the Sun and the Moon….

The change of seasons is slowly penetrating the stratosphere as we head into week 20 of recording. We are not only seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, we can feel it. Drum loops were meshed with properly toned V-Drums. A sort of funky Duran Duran with a heavy groove jazz kit was worked on for several hours. Drum loops are great if used in the proper style along side an actual drum kit. Heavy power and soul can be achieved with real sampled drums alongside of musicians playing authentic percussion. I am looking forward to working with more world instruments, musicians, and loops in future recordings.
Outside the studio, we took a field trip back to the Bristol Renaissance Fair for a final dusty fall-like weekend. We were regaled with the magnificent and hilarious sea shanty tunes (ya man, I dig sea shanties) of my friends The Bounding main. Hanging out with fellow musicians and their families, we drank up the welcoming atmosphere as we walked closely below the looming shadow of the coming fall.
I had left the studio with the possibility of a sitar or bagpipe addition to the song ‘9Sticks’. I found, on returning, that Jeff had worked up a majestic and distant bagpipe arrangement in the breakdown section of the song. The segment was reminiscent of a John Paul Jones/”Over the Hills and Far Away” voicing and vibe. Perplexing mathematical equations were calculated in order to produce the correct amount of tonal magic on this track. The astronomical change in the season is marked by the position of the earth and sun. The recording of 'Between the Sun & the Moon’ should be completed by the autumnal equinox.
