A record contract

After such a long time I signed a record contract again today. No, not for a solo CD, but for a remix of my piece "Crime" from the early 80s.

The French group "Spaceships Are Cool" has taken the title and processed it in a contemporary way. The result is a song worth listening to on a more listenable CD called " SERIOUSLY, ERIC? Vol. 3"

It will be released in September.

The old version of Crime can still be heard on

More will come as soon as I know something more precise.
