I am very pleased to have contributed a piece to the wonderful Amplify 2020: Quarantine series created by Jon Abbey / Erstwhile Records(US). The fantatic series was begun at the beginning of the lock-in (March 2020) and continues on to this day with contribution of pieces created by an incredible array of artists during these very strange times. I highly recommend taking the time to visit & listen to the growing list of thoughtful, rich and diverse sound work. Check the page here.
My piece ‘cezve rock‘ is an 8 1/2 minute piece made in Berlin – a slow murky meditation on vibrations. The piece is free to listen and download, but any donations of support are also very welcome.
In addition to this piece & several of my other albums i now have physical copies of my two solo LP’s – sand/layna (2015 Black Truffle) and Beside Myself (2020 Students of Decay) available directly from me. You can access my whole discography here.
Bandcamp is the most direct way to support artists and with their generous Bandcamp Fridays – a project instigated by Bandcamp on the first Friday of each month where they waive their fees and therefore flow 100% of sales directly to artists (minus PayPal fees) –this is a great opportunity to support artists during these very difficult times. The next Bandcamp Friday is tomorrow, August 7!
I will be a giving a talk at the California Institute for the Arts in their Experimental Sound Practices program tomorrow, February 25 (Survey of Sound Art class). In the days following this i will have a performance/talk with Oren Ambarchi at the University of California, San Diego as well as two performances next week in LA with Ora Clementi, my duo with James Rushford. Busy days in sunny California! more details on these events can be found on my upcoming page.
I am very pleased to have a piece of mine – Blood & Memory #2 (for Lance Austin Olsen) – featured on the current edition of the Wire (UK) magazine’s Below The Radar #19 digital compilation. Each featured track is available for free download to subscribers of the Wire HERE.
My work unraveling will be presented as part of a great little group show at CAC
Bukovje in Landskrona, Sweden from December 14 – January 5. The show which is curated by Nina Slejko and Conny Blom is titled Old-school ASMR and will also feature works by Carl Michael von Hausswolff, Jeremy Deller, Anna Ling, Miltos Manetas, Kajsa Dahlberg, Alexander Gutke and Leon Zuodar.
I will be performing a new solo work called ‘attune‘ for a special event in Toronto at Interaccess on November 23. The evening, titled Tunings, will coincide with the closing of Cold Pin – a kinetic sound installation by Eli Keszler (NY). My performance will respond to Keszler’s percussive approach and explorations of resonance through my explorations with spring reverb and contact mics. The night will also feature performances by Nick Storring & Matt Rogalsky.
