"The Garden was nominated for a Grammy in 1995 as best New Age album. It was in the New Age category because I didn’t have clue what category to put it in so NARAS just put it in New Age. It didn’t win the Grammy that year – but the nomination was very satisfying even though I didn’t then, and don’t now, know what New Age is.
I finally finished The Ocean – the final part of The Prison, The Garden and The Ocean trilogy. The trilogy is titled Infinitia. The limited (200), numbered, and signed First Edition boxed set of Infinitia ships October 12th – and were available for pre-order about 24 hours ago. As I write this there are a few left.
Following that First Edition shipment the regular Infinitia box set of all three, Prison, Garden, Ocean, – as well as the Ocean CD solo album and CD download will be available and ship around the first week of November.
I’ll submit The Ocean to NARAS, but again, I have no idea what category to submit it for. It’s taken forty years for this trilogy to come to life and in that forty years I still don’t quite know what New Age Music is. I don’t think of Infinitia as New Age – I’m not sure what category it fits – only that I’m very happy this is done. It feels like a chapter has closed and a door has finally opened.
Everything I mention here is, or will be, available at Videoranch.com – and the other usual outlets that we have come to know and love. Naturally I will be most happy to see you at Videoranch.com."
