Duncan Patterson signs to Avantgarde Music

I'm pleased to announce that I have signed a deal with Italy's Avantgarde Music with regards to the Alternative 4 project. I'm looking forward to work together with them, carving out this new chapter in my career.

Recording will commence in May at Transmission Rooms Recording Studio, Ireland, and the album will be tracked at various sessions during summertime. Although 'The Brink' has been written by me in it's entirety, I will be accompanied by long time collaborator and friend Mark Kelson (The Eternal) and drummer Mauro Frison who joined me for the gigs in Argentina 2010. Choral and orchestral sections are being recorded in Monterrey, Mexico. The Brink is a cinematic rock album that I have written conceptually about the dumbing down of society, touching on the music scene, and the corruption of people in power both on a global scale and in the music industry.

I fully understand what I am going to attract by choosing this title for my project, but I see that as a perfect irony considering the subject matter. Those who understand can afford themselves a wry smile, I certainly will. Plus it will allow me to tackle something head-on that has been an albatross for me for over a decade.

Anyway, I'm proud to be working with everyone involved in this and I truly appreciate their enthusiasm for fresh original music. It's a rarity in these times.

Onwards and upwards.
