I've posted more information about the OPENSIGNAL installation that I was a part of in May here.
A track of mine, red-painted right hand of god, is included on a YDLMIER cassette compilation. YDLMIER is a label that releases tapes from New England experimental musicians. The release event is today at WSAC in Somerville, MA from 2-11pm. More information about the event can be found here. (Once again. apologies for posting information about this so last minute.)
A 30 minute piece of mine, entitled Somerset Repeater, is part of an installation at Galerie Area in Paris, France. The installation runs from 4pm today to 4pm tomorrow, the 22nd. It is curated by the record labelTsuku Boshi. Details can be found here. I wish so badly that I could be there for it!
I've composed a piece that will be part of a collaborative sound installation for OPENSIGNAL Festival at Brown University this coming weekend. The festival begins on Friday the 16th at 7pm, and Saturday at 1pm. The festival includes the installation, live performances, record sales and swaps, and artist talks. Information about the festival can be found here.
I performed on January 10th at Washington Street Arts Center in Somerville, Massachusetts. A friend kindly recorded it for me. You can view the video to the right, or on YouTube here.
I promise that next time, I'll actually alert you
before the show.
My new album, Keue Yeo is finished and available to purchase. It is a limited-run cassette release of 50, containing songs that I recorded in 2011. These songs mean a great deal to me, and so I took care in designing and making the packaging that houses them. Each case is one-of-a-kind and handmade from scraps of second-hand leather clothing, sewn at home, with hand-painted details on the packaging as well as the artwork enclosed.
To the right are some previews, including an excerpt of the first track, and a glimpse of the handmade packaging. Additional excerpts can be heard on soundcloud.
This album is an invocation to Murcielago, the Zapotec bat god that, among other things, is a bridge between heaven and hell. A deity to carry me up and out of the depths of a trying year. Much gratitude is due to all those who have supported me and encouraged me this past year, during these dark days and hours.
The track listing is as follows:
bound by grass
under the pipes of solomon (excerpt)
so many other places
Each cassette is $8, plus $2 for shipping to US & Canada, $4 for shipping internationally. To purchase the tape, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about availability. Purchases will then be made through Paypal.
This preview includes an excerpt of the first song on the album, bound by grass.
Here is a glimpse at two examples of the parcels.
