An album to walk to

I've officially started work on my second album, now having the bones of a first and second track.
No idea how long it will take though. My last one took over a year, but I think that was excessive, this one should be faster.

My general plan for the sound: Catchy yet kind of dark, post-rock-esque builds, few sounds that purely emulate other instruments, maybe a vocal track?, more of a focus on how notes and melodies interact, more of a focus on tonal song structure (i.e. chord changes) interesting and promenant beats, fewer vocal samples then the first album.
But who knows, this could all change tomorrow.

Also, every track is going to be at 100bpm which is my perfect beat to follow while walking... and since I have a slower walking bpm then most people it may force people to slow down and appreciate the scenery while listening.

sounds good. i like the idea of all one tempo, one could mix it with things with ease.

hooray for concept.

Excellent news! And how about letting your listeners send in short vocal samples (under the CC license) that you in turn use in the tracks? It would create something special...!

if i'm not mistaken your first one was all about 82 or 86 bpm.
will you be releasing fast beats by your seventh releases???

ahah joking. good news, you know you have a fan over here, can't wait for the new work.

Good ear pierlu... it was indeed all at 83bpm... except for one song which is at 84bpm.
