Second best photo!

Dear friends!

ACT I is finally in the manufacturing plant and I am anxiously waiting to get my own copy of it. It was a long process, but I am very happy with the result. At the moment I am very busy with the interviews and many journalists have been asking me if these live DVD and CD are as important to me as my studio albums or if I wanted to have this release done now to win time for my next studio album.

The fact is that as ACT I is my first live release in my solo career, that makes it VERY important to me.

After two studio albums I felt that it was a time to come up with the live release since I had enough material for it. I really want to show the world where I am as an artist today and what my music is about. There is no better way to show it than with a live release.

Nothing has been overdubbed or recorded afterwards, so ACT I is very honest release from me and the band. You can really see, hear and feel what truly happened in Rosario on those nights. It makes me so happy that we were able to capture the magic on the video. I really hope you all can enjoy my work and my passion as you are big part of it!

In the meantime, the new studio album is in production! We are recording basses at the moment with Doug and Kevin. But more about it later.

Here is the second best photo I chose from the photo gallery contest. Morganna took a great shot. I love it! You can nearly hear the music in it.

With love, Tarja

    Luz del Manantial en tu Poetica Mirada de Serafin…

    Los bohemios Palpitos de la Ilusión presentan Señales en tempo sutil…
    Los Latidos allegro del Corazón se desvanece en la razón
    de la elegancia de aquel Romanticismo. Estos Palpitos expulsan
    a mares, alagos y pensamientos conducidos a las puertas doradas
    del enamorado. El dulce océano de preguntas son nacidas por aquellas
    frases madievales. El aullido del amor es acompañado por la humilde
    angelical luz de la luna, ella brinda Señales escondidas en Sensaciones
    que son delatadas por los gritos de aquel ilusionado Corazón…

    I´m sure we will enjoy the DVD, “Into the sun” already looks very promising :) . Apart from the song itself, it seems like fine recording quality, too.
    It´s so nice to hear about the progress of the new CD, how about a little acoustic example or a little “making of” video? ;)
    The photo is really beautiful, and the winner is…? :D

    Ciao and hugs

    Moi Tarja!
    Hieno valokuva jälleen kerran :D Tekstiä on kyllä hankala lukee, kun jostain syystä se näkyy mulle ainakin ihan vaaleena. En tiedä onko vika omassa koneessa…

  13. Hello Tarja,

    I think everyone is feeling anxious about the release of Act 1, but in a good way :) It’ll be nice to finally see it!

    It’s also exciting to hear, a tiny bit of news regarding the new album!

    Love and Best Wishes,

    Dear Tarja!
    I’m very anxious waiting for the DVD, my husband almost didn’t stand me anymore (laughs) ’cause I talk about it every day. I also know that I’ll always be vibrating for you and supporting you always. I met your voice at time Oceanborn and I follow your career, including the classic, which you also makes an amazing and beautiful work. congratulations for all this, for your success and happiness to your life and career, you always shine more!
    with love, Schimenes.

      I couldn’t read the text until I highlighted it.

      Beautiful photo. Congrats to the photographer.

      “Into the Sun” is not available at iTunes Canada. I’m very unhappy about it. :(
      Oh well, I watch the video on YouTube every day. Several times a day. :) Lighting, setting, song, singer: in a word: beautiful.

      My impatience for the release is growing as a result.

      Horns Up!! ;)

    I love you Tarja. Tomorrow is my birthday (I am a Leo like you) and would be very very very happy if I get a greeting from you, even a small mail, a word, anything.

    I was the night of 30 in the theater “The Circle” and was the most fantastic and beautiful night of my life, and your voice and performance on stage were amazing.

    Really are recording the sounds for your new album?

    Oh my god, it’s great news!

    Many kisses for you and I hope from you a little sign …….. “happy birthday” ….. maybe …….. Please? ……….. you would make me very very happy ……


  17. Muchisimas gracias Tarja por elegir mi foto!
