Greetings to everyone!
For everyone who took the time to listen to TRUTH, checked it out for GRAMMY™ consideration for ‘record of the year’, and/or watched the amazing video created by Michael Ndah of Steadfaster Media with live footage provided by our own lovely Rajni Gagnon - a huge THANK YOU!
During this crazy pandemic, we have been organizing the COPUS archives from across the years. We are releasing posters, videos, albums and podcasts (from our historic hit radio show) and other merchandise exclusively from our Bandcamp discography website. Be privy to our never before seen or heard unique material, inside stories, behind the scenes juicy anecdotes, catalog, sheet music, lyrics...as well as the all new sounds we're conjuring up. Be notified and be up on it, hit the 'follow' button located where we pitch our tent right here on the campsite.
Scheduled for recording and release in 2021, COPUS has been working on fresh new tracks including the title song The Dilemma. For all of our true audiophile fans and friends, we will be distributing a limited number of this album on vinyl only. Be engaged. Be ready. It's a monster!
In the meantime, we're offering up some really quality TRUTH merchandise including designer masks, coffee mugs, Word Tshirts, and the best of COPUS via downloadable tracks available at the official COPUS website. Make it a gift to yourself! Us too. Join in on the support of independent artists. Be down with Creation Of Peace Under Stars. New days abound!
In October 2019, COPUS premiered What if We? at the World Bank and Forest Trends in Washington DC. Composed by Wendy Loomis with poetics by Royal Kent, the work was created in collaboration with the amazing science team from The ClimateMusic Project.
We had numerous Bay Area performances of the piece scheduled for 2020, but alas we know how that worked out. In the meantime, however, you can check out our participation / composition - and that of other composers - demonstrating the ornate collaborative efforts between scientists and musicians and the cool work they are doing at The ClimateMusic Project. It's pretty impressive how they are raising awareness about climate change with science and sound! We anticipate further dynamic collaborative works together ahead in 2021.
Love and respect
