After getting word of my use of one of their chord progressions for my final jazzcore project, Streetlamp Blues, Tryad invited me to compose and sing some guest vocals for one of their songs-in-progress, Beauty. A couple months later, the song is pretty much finished and is totally sweet. You can listen to it here!
What's next? I don't know, besides eagerly awaiting for the rest of Listen to be released to the unsuspecting world. There is a possibility that I may get paid (!) work for the soundtrack of an upcoming online TV show type thing "in the vein of Lost, Twin Peaks, and George Romero's films" that John is working on. If that works out, that'd be totally sweet.
