A quick update

We are entering the fifth week of lock down here in Austria. It's a very interesting time in the world right now.

NOT Launch party, plus album preview

Today I'm celebrating the album completion with a party! When a project that has stewed for 20 years is finally complete, I think it's important to celebrate the achievement.
