hello, wow, time flies. i haven’t posted an update in over a year, but i guess there wasn’t much to report. that said, i spaced on posting about my news a week or two ago. so here’s the news:
my new cd came out on the 25th of march on the wonderful traced objects, with visual design and layout by twxx.us. i’m super pleased with how it all turned out and am grateful to both patrick and mark for their effort and belief in my sounds. you can order the physical or digital on the traced objects bandcamp site.
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:
Stereo percussive wildlife, Five Springs Falls, Bighorn National Forest, WY
Stereo percussive wildlife, Lake Macbride State Park, IA
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-Dependent – CODE030 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.
hello, on the first day of the new year, the superpang label put up a free compilation called ‘tour mode‘. my track ‘flock 20’ was an attempt to expand the flocking approach. it’s interesting trying to figure out how far you can extend things before you lose that signature sound. thanks to christian at superpang for inviting me to participate. design by joe gilmore/qubik.
hello, today the superpang label put up the ‘flocking 19‘ release, which is largely assembled from live recordings from sets in chicago and milwaukee in 2019. i’m grateful to my friends that arranged and played those shows and to christian for helping me share them with you through superpang. design by joe gilmore/qubik.
