And there’s an extremely perceptive track-by-track review of the album up on listencorp (we expect nothing less!). My favorite part:
Reaching an ecclesiastical euphoria of harmonies and echoes, the voice doles out thank you’s from the creators of the course. After which things descend into instrumental chaos with glissando notes filling the soundscape, ending the course on an emphatic and almost ornate note tied off with a twinkling swish of pixellated bells at the very end.
Wow–Farewell, Doomed Planet! is on the WTUL charts for the NINETEENTH TIME, coming in at #29 overall and #7 electronic. I’m speechless. A thousand thanks to all the DJs. WTUL’s “not quite 51st annual rock on survival marathon” is going on right now, so it’s a great time to donate! Furthermore, if you email me and let me know you’ve donated, I’ll send you a Bandcamp download code for the album of your choice from my releases. Offer expires in seven days!
Julia describes the mix as, “Music from artists who have inspired and consoled me during this strange time, who have enabled me to travel without moving, and find a sense of connection through sound. In all these tracks I feel a sense of opening into something that transcends boundaries.”

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:
