Cosmic Church of I Heart Noise and The Thursday Bazaar with Julia Kent

I’m so flattered that the transcendent composer/cellist Julia Kent selected my “Trinity Quadrant Cantata” as one of her two picks for Radio Free Matlock’s Thursday Bazaar with Lippy Kidd last week. Catch the recap on Mixcloud or below:

And a huge thank you to Ilya from one of my favorite music blogs, I Heart Noise, for including my Gertrude Stein rap (lol) on the Camp Radio show Cosmic Church, also now on Mixcloud and with annotated tracklist on the blog:

Tapeta Lucida, The Moderns, and Urban Mutant

Spent today catching up on listening and I’m so glad I did. Both Tapeta Lucida on North State Public Radio and The Moderns on Radio Regent programmed “Blue Moon Frequency #2b [Fall Mix]“, my remix with Geiger Von Müller, on their wonderful shows recently. And DJ BLeeK made a very cool “bittersweet fantasy soundtrack to Ocean Shores Washington’s legendary shipwreck” for the Urban Mutant show on Hollow Earth Radio that includes my “Silent Space Scream” off Music the DMV. Listen to everything via Mixcloud below.

Tapeta Lucida, Dark Train, Revival Synth, and Radiophrenia!

Lots going on this week! Including…

I also have a brand new work (!) as part of Glasgow’s Radiophrenia, “a temporary art radio station – a two-week exploration into current trends in sound and transmission arts.” Radiophrenia runs November 9-22, 24 hours a day. My piece, “Liminal Telegraphy,” premieres Saturday November 21 between 8AM-9AM GMT (or 2AM-3AM CST). More on that soon, and check out the full program at the Radiophrenia website.

And finally, thanks to Revival Synth for including “Stay Safe” as a Track of the Week.

2 New Reviews

It’s a two review day! First, this perceptive write-up of the Stay Safe mini-release from Mat Smith of Further., including:

“Sounding like the infinitely looped announcements you might expect to hear in a post-apocalyptic urban wasteland where no one survived, something about what Elizabeth has done here seems to tap directly into the sensation of paranoid dread and existential panic that have become the cornerstones of our daily locked-down lives.”

Next, Pietro Da Sacco from Igloo Magazine tackles the Strange Selectors compilation, referring to the “alluring, dreamlike downtempo strands” of my contribution, “The Heart Sounds Like Heavy Artillery.”

Thanks to both Mat and Pietro!

BMF #2b Fall Mix Video Premiere

ICYMI, Tyler Weaver premiered the video for “Blue Moon Frequency #2b [Fall Mix],” my newest remix with Geiger Von Müller, in his Sunday MacroParentheticals newsletter. The video is once again by the adroit Paal V, with a little remixing from me. It’s now live on YouTube; check it out! And sign up for future editions of MacroParentheticals.

1 Year Anniversary of Farewell, Doomed Planet!

One year ago yesterday I self-released Farewell, Doomed Planet!. I’ve had a lot of great response to the album. As I did with Music for the DMV, I decided to do a little recap of what the past year has looked like in terms of promoting the album. I’ve embedded an image of the report below, or you can download as a PDF here.

In celebration, here are some download codes for the album. You can redeem them at Bandcamp:
