Our new Tic Tic album "Comfort in the Echo"

Some of you know that I make music together with my wife as “Tic Tic”. Yesterday we released our first full length album on vinyl and CD (+ spotify, etc). We’ve been working on this for 4+ years and a ridiculous amount of hours, so I’m very excited to finally being able to share the results!

Polyexpressive instruments are a very important part of our sound (and live act). Especially the Eigenharp. It is used all over the place. Some Axoloti + Seaboard blocks stuff here and there as well.

I hope you will take the time to give it a listen. We will need all the help we can get to promote it, so anything from facebook followers (@ticticmusic), social media shares, promotion tips, etc. will be much apprecieated. :slight_smile:


…btw, we also premiered a music video for one of the tracks yesterday. We are very pleased with how it turned out. :slight_smile:


Sounds good, congrats to the achievement!
Did you also record some videos that show you two playing the instruments? The blinkyness of an Eigenharp can be magic!

Thanks! Hmm. We have some Eigenharp footage, but haven’t shared any of it yet. One idea we have been toying with is doing a video recording of a Wavedrum, Eigenharp and Onde somewhere outdoors. I guess we could try to do it when it is a bit dark so that the lights look nice. :slight_smile:


Congrats Kai :wink: well done.
Success to future adventures!

Thank you! We have received some album reviews here and there by now, and they have been very positive. Several are mentioning the Eigenharp especially. Example: “for all the electronica, it’s a remarkably natural sounding album. A lot of this, I assume, is down to the band’s extensive use of the Eigenharp”. :smiley: Seeing my favourite instrument in the world get a bit of attention makes me happy. :slight_smile:


wow, excellent @Kai - congratulations.
love the music, and the video is fantastic.

Thanks for listening. :slight_smile: I programmed the lights in the video from the Octatrack, btw. Via one of these: http://response-box.com/gear/decabox-midi-to-dmx-bridge/

Probably easier to just use dedicated software, but since I use it live as an easy way to have the lights follow whatever I’m doing on the OT I just did it the way I was already used to.

Wow that’s cool - it’s a good way to synchronize the music and lights.

I’ve got an eyesy ( critter and guitari) and when I get time (!) I’m planning on doing some graphics and thought I’d sequence some aspects of it.
