Recently I was asked, if Odyssey would become available again some day. And more precise if it would become available as download just as Tabula Rasa did. The short answer is 'nope'.
The long version is, as might have been indicated, a bit longer:
I have currently no plans for a rerelease of Odyssey in any form. Neither as cd nor as download. Odyssey does contain some good ideas and it is much more aggressive than most other ambient music. This would, in itself, justify a rerelease. However, it is very poorly produced. And especially the guitar parts annoys me. If I was to rerelease Odyssey, I would have to do something about those guitars. And this, cannot be done, as I do not have the multitracks any more. If I did (and I might have some), I could revamp it just as I revamped Tabula Rasa before last years rerelease. But without the actual multitracks, this cannot be done. I could start all over again and rerecord the worst parts, but honestly, why bother? So, why can't I just release it as the document of its time it is? Because I don't think it's a very good document is why. I have come a long way technically as well as musically since Odyssey. I will, however, not say never. I might rerelease it some day, but I wouldn't count on it...
