Well it's been a long, long time coming, but finally it is here! The new album is out. It's available in all the usual places, but best to go through http://www.purplemusic.org. It goes by the unlikely name of "Mimetophonic Windows."
I'm sorry if there is anyone actually following this blog, I kind of gave up blogging because every time I did I was saying "well there's been a long gap". It was an odd album, small sporadic flurries of activity followed by long gaps. Sometimes there were reasons - I went through a few crises of confidence in the music, but I think the final result may be the finest Purple album yet. It's certainly the most personal.
I have plans for the next album, but I'm not sure when I will start it. I have other plans for a different recording project - songs not instrumental music - I will see which takes of first.
