Business at hand: ?Here’s what’s up at the moment.

Kompozing:

In the JennyK Studio – Collaboration “Grendel” waiting for guitars! Demo!

Podcasting: We are working on a new Music we Love podcast featuring one of our favourite collaborators from kompoz.com. No, I’m not telling. 😀
Writing: I am currently, alongside writing the second Sundered World novel “Mother of Crow”, revising the first book “A Mother’s Heart” which was edited and published in a rush. It is quite rough to be honest. Whether it is a good idea to work on the two books at the same time is unclear.
Icarus Machine: We are working on the EP “Fragile. Vocals are mostly recorded and we are waiting for some stuff, hesitating on other things, doing all the things. In other words, it’s all a big pile of confusion and scattered workflows- Until it’s not. Wish us luck.
JennyK in real life: Living in a house turned complete mess in preparation for the unavoidable sale come spring/summer. — Let’s just say , shit will happen whether we want it or not and one day I’ll think back on this winter, lie and say, “maybe it wasn’t so bad.” 🙂

Icarus Machine 2019 –Corium

Corium Album Cover. A flayed man, a bible. Ancient statue.
Corium Album Cover. A flayed man, a bible. Ancient statue.
After two years it is finally finished. Corium is our second album and it is a couple of steps up from our debut album “This Sundered World” (2016). This album returns to the world created in the novel “A Mother’s Heart.” and the theme in this album expands the world and focuses on new characters. The companion novel to Corium – “Mother of Crow” is still being written with no release date in sight.
But Corium is very much ready and you can decide for yourself if it was worth the wait.
Find Corium on Deezer,
Spottify,
iTunes,
Google Play,
and
Amazon.
and of course on
Bandcamp!

  • What’s New Monday, Jan 27 @ 8:48 - Latest news, thoughts, and things to come January 27, 2020 We made it to 2020, who would have thunk it. This website is safe for the year thanks to beautiful people who answered my emergency ask for financial help. I'm feeling quite humbled at the moment tbh. Icarus Machine is working on Fragile. i'm writing and revising a couple of novels. Some podcasting is underway too. This very moment, which is the only moment there is, things are not bad at all. May it stay so. Be well always. November 13, 2019 So, I started a fundraiser. My microphone is failing me, so I would love help with a new one. Sounds easy enough. Well, it's not. Psychologically and practically it's tough. I keep thinking it's a stupid thing to do. Why would anyone care. It's the wrong time of year to ask people for money, even if it's a few dollars. I'm not sick or homeless or in need of... anything truly critical for survival. Someone said to me, "It's a shot in the dark." I'm not sure what that actually means. but it doesn't feel like encouragement. Another issue that crops up is that since I do have a microphone, I use it so clearly I have one, my ask seems unnecessary and probably feels like a simple grab for cash. I'm not sure how to think about that. It makes me doubt myself. Grab for cash? Well, no! But I'm sure that depends on who you ask too. First world problem in a nutshell. but then I remember my actual situation and the reason why I started the fundraiser. It's simply because the gear I have is failing and I have problems keeping it running while I… Go to the post.
