Big Thanks to you all who supported our latest release,we really appreciate it!
We continue climbing on the branches that grows in the direction of that latest release. Anyway that's our intension, but we had the intension to make a acoustic release a few chapters back, that seed of intension grew up through some kind of rock mould.
So do we know what we are doing?
Probably not so much,but at least we are doing something under the Brother ape banner.
So our plan is just quit simple just now, more prog spices and less pop flavors.
A strange 3D shadow appears when taking this picture.
when taking this picture.
And the prologue for this paranormal activities have both gang fights and humans going ape shit in the psychological coctail. Can a crazy day at work show up as a projection in the shadow?
Or...can the historic presents of leprechauns sabotaging the electronic equipment have something to do with the phenomenon? And now they even gone into the business of ripping up the snare skin.
We are going through strange time even in this little isolated spot of reality.
Whith this little anecdote we wish you a Happy Halloween

OLD FASHIONED TIME BUBBLE
I got this sent to me with a note shall we use this or drop it in the vault.
I listened and it really blowed me away! My mind was moved into a bubble with some old fashioned good vibration, beautiful and sad in a fascinating way.
Oh hell yeah! What a piece of music and he asked me if we should through it in the vault! Crazy!
I think Stefan really wrote his best songs ever during the time in the writing cabin.
It seams like the coordinates of that place really fuels the creative mind.
We are back on the blogg again!
As I mentioned in earlier in a post that Stefan works on a longer composition with a more symphonic aproach. We'll I heard it and it's absolutely fantastic! This one also carry the title of the album, the physical not next digital EP,just to be clear about that.
Stefan have his mind directed towards a bombastic Brother ape Eldorado or something like that. And I sacked myself for the artwork on this album because we wanted a more arty style.And Stefan already hade a creative and skilled artist in mind for the job. For the moment everything is under a top secret protocol, but I think I can leak some material from the drawing board.
NEW POLYGRAPH VICTIM
-Hello I am Dr Gregori Arvar.Running the polygraph iterview, I am also the hobby shrink.I will in this episode take on the man behind deeper levels of vibration in the band.
Hi mr Gunnar!
I've heard that you got an anti plectrum personality. Can you explain that a bit deeper for the ordinary normal person?
I like the sound of plectrum bass on some songs but i do not master it myself. Plectrums also make you confined in a less dynamic landscape. Honestly ,i suck on it and hate it ”because i have reasons” haha.
You also have a engineering personality incorporated under the skin.Tell me about the flying V and how you went from that strange object to become a fiddler of the fat strings!
I like to fix things that are broken. I also like to improve stuff. The later is the main driver i guess. The ”V” is my teenage project and still is the meanest guitar build on the planet. But electric guitar is a ”plectrum thing” and i hate it ”because i have reasons” haha
Did you throw away the keys to the board,we haven't seen you being the nervous dentist on the black and white teeths latly,why?
I am still doing it in the shadows of night. I recently bought new portable keys and a new samlper. Beware!!
You are also involved in the critical process of mastering the bands productions. Isn't that to compare with the sensitive and expensive nose of the sniffer at a perfume laboratory? Tell us all about it!
Mixing and mastering is a great joy. Lately Stefan has delivered mixed material so i kind of focused on mastering and final touch-up. It has been a good ”second opinion workflow” for us and it helps not being involved in the mixing part when you have to focus on the big picture. I do sometimes hear things that is bettet fixed in the mix and songs tend to bounce between us for that reason in the finalizing process.
INTERVIEW BY HOBBY SHRINK
This is a short hearing of mr Stefan. Done under the influence of a special serum and with the polygraph running at the maximum level.
I am phd Dr Gregori Arvar aka the hobby shrink.-He He let us begin.
You writing new material for the new album, what are you up to right now?
Well I'm working on a couple of new songs for the upcoming release at the same time as I am mixing some new versions of the two bundles of songs we released last year.
-Can you tell us about your creative operation , how do you begin?
My working process can start anywhere. Sometimes with a guitar lick, a song melody or an instrumental piece. I don't work from start to end but like a jigsaw. I can start with the end for example,then the chorus, the song verses and maybe an instrumental part in the middle. If I lose inspiration for the project I leave it to rest and continue with another.
-Hm.. I see,divided and do not know where to begin. And in this confused puzzle you also add some lyrics, is this procedure similar or more like a sudoko ?
I usually write the lyrics after the song melody is accomplished. I get inspiration to the words from the mood of the music and I often use a bank of words and sentences that I've stored on my computer.
-A bank of words!so clever,I guess you're lending out from this special word stock with a good amount of interest.
Thanks for your time, no more questions,or let me put it this way. I'm not sure which words that are under control by the word bank of the man in question.So I better stop before my dept to this bank makes me speechless.
I will be back with a new victim under the polygraph Very soon.
A SMALL CONTEST
Our composer have moved out to his secret writing cabin in the deep woods,to get the best possible environment for the creative process.
I've tried several times to reach him but without success.
Then suddenly he sends this picture of a serious working bloke in deep concentration. How the hell he managed to take this selfy from the side is quite amazing.
Well I zoomed in on the paper to take a look at the masterpiece.
And it captures one of his biggest online hits ever coming into creation!Ok this picture obviously isn't new but it holds a historical pike of success.But if the picture is new then we have a reason to be worried.
The first who can guess which video that contains this beautiful poem. Will be the lucky winner of our official T-shirt. Okay you must fit yourself into the large sized piece of fabric and not the other way around. That's the next profound level of this demanding challenge.
I'll give you a hint....
it's not to find on the BA youtube channel.
Move your radar closer to the composing character and maybe....
And to be absolutely clear of the contest rules.We limit the first winning answer to the comment section of this blog.
