21.02.05 – two releases today – above/below & CODE030

Good morning, today there are two new Shedding releases out. I had hoped to coordinate, because self-promotion just feels a bit crass. So, why not get it over with and share two things on one day and simplify the process? 🙂

The first is a tape on Auralgamisounds and is the first in a new series of field recordings they’re doing called ‘Working Memory’. My tape is called ‘Above / Below’. Here is some more info:

  • A: Above: 
    • Stereo percussive wildlife, Five Springs Falls, Bighorn National Forest, WY
    • Stereo percussive wildlife, Lake Macbride State Park, IA
  • B: Below: 
    • Various hydrophone drip recordings in the kitchen, KY
    • Hydrophone and small stream surface, Black Elk Peak ascent, Black Hills, SD
    • Hydrophone and stream surface, Prune Creek, Bighorn National Forest, WY
    • Stereo stream surface, Prune Creek, Bighorn National Forest, WY

Thanks to Auralgami Sounds, Final Form, the weens, Harvey, and my western adventure companions on two trips: Greg Korchnak and Deidre Canada. 

The second release is digital only on Co-DependentCODE030 All the money is for charity. This is a very different release and is comprised of some of last summer’s zonked synth improvisations that were then intuitively constructed in the computer. I think the new free jazz discoveries I’ve been listening to these past few years have started to creep deep into my soul.
