Interview with Electrum

Gino, Joe, and I recently gave an interview with Prog Archives (despite the fact we haven't released a record since 2002). Joe got off the best line when asked about our writing process...
Gino generally throws things at Dave during rehearsals. I don't mean ideas, I mean *things*.
You can read the rest at Prog Archives.
Electrum writing new music

Last night Joe, Gino and I got together to start working on new material for a third album. Despite the fact that the 3 of us haven't played in the same room for several years now, we had some enjoyable spontaneous jams and managed to work through an arrangement to a new song, which is fairly close to complete now.
Joe now has an unorthodox drum setup which leads to some interesting rhythms. Gino doesn't sound like he had any rust in his playing at all after a fairly long layoff from playing bass. I spent the last few weeks buying some gear to turn my stationary recording rig into something I could haul around and would be loud enough to get through rehearsals. The new gear performed well and I played much better than I thought I would.
It was a lot of fun spending some time playing in the same room with the guys. I haven't had the opportunity to play with them or any other musicians for quite some time now so it was nice to get out of the basement and away from a click track for a few hours.
Electrum to begin working on a 3rd CD

Well it has certainly been quite a layoff since our 2002 release "Standard Deviation" but that will be coming to a close in a just a few weeks as we have decided to begin work on a new collection of music. Yay!
