Hi,

I've this album quite a while now (ordered it directly when it was available) and at first I thought that it was a 'seperate songs' album. Then I heard it was a story that's told, but I haven't been able to figure out what the story is then. Is that just me with to little imagination? Can someone enlighten me a little bit?

Thanks in advance,

Remco

If I remember correctly, ther is a multimedia section on my copy of Contagion, that has the story as a click-through Flash-like application. I'm too lazy to dig it out now, really.... *shrug*....

Appelmoes??

If I remember correctly that multimedia section is on Contagious or Contagium.

Thanks for the replies.
Seems I've to make some hurry buying the EP's :). I'm really curious you know. Nice to hear it's explained somewhere.

I'm still too lazy too look it up, though.... :P

I haven't even had time to look at the material!!!! :-[

I recorded the songs, so I could make my own Complete Contagion, but I haven't checked out the multimedia stuff yet. What's wrong with me? And you? ;D

Peter

Well, must be the music itself that keeps me from doing it... :)

To make it easier.. We intend to print the short story in the booklet of Contagion The Max so that you can read it while listening to the music and don't have to go to the multimedia section of Contagium. Meanwhile, it's also available at the Cage website http://www.the-cage.org in the Follow The Signs section.

Ive heard that  the tracks from Contagium and Contagious slot in somewhere onto the Contagion album? Has anyone else heard about that?

They sure do... although musically they do not follow the story-line (or the other way round).
Whe the first EP came out, I put them on the right place (once I found out which tracks was what, 'cause the trackorder is wrong on the jewel-case) and they didn't fit. I remember telling this to Clive at the Paradiso and he ssemed suprised, but hastened to say that 'there was more to come, wait and find out it works....'  ;)
I think he did his best 'repairing' the problem with the 2nd EP, but there still are some order-changes to be made.
We will see/hear everything falling into place on Contagion The Max,... I hope....

Lots are explained by JJ's last post...

I love Clives Keyboard sweep about 3/4 the way through "Contagious"  ;D

Wow, that was timed well (or mixed perfectly)

It will. I think lots of work has been done and the artwork has been chosen as well... but don't hold your breath. The boys are pretty busy....

I really love the fact that the album tells a story. And it's a pretty good story, well-done Clive! I also like the fact, that you can put your own experiences and beliefs in it!

I can imagine, that wouldn't be too nice.
