I’m so pleased to be on an upcoming charity compilation curated by John from Sound Effects Of Death And Horror (SEODAH) and released by Wormhole World. It features 13 artists who have joined together to celebrate the work of Delia Derbyshire, Wendy Carlos and other electronic pioneers, and proceeds will go to support Delia Derbyshire Day, a charity with the objectives of advancing the education of the public in music technology and the history and art of British electronic music via the archive and works of Delia Derbyshire.
Pre-orders will open on Friday 10 April when a lead track by ME! will be launched, and the album will be released on May 15.
There’s a nice write-up and the full track listing up on Louder Than War, check it out!
This Friday, Bandcamp is waiving revenue shares to help support artists affected by COVID-19. As much as I’d love you to buy my music, my income isn’t dependent on it and I’d rather you join me in supporting artists who are hurting.
Looking for recommendations? Check out my Bandcamp collection & wishlist, and try especially to support artists who have had shows cancelled, or whose retail/service/gig economy/other day jobs have been cancelled or restricted by COVID-19.
Thanks to John Allen for playing “Baleen Executioner” on his morning show JA In the AM today on WFMU! It’s a rousing mix, just as good for post-lunch sleepytime as it is for the start of the day. Take a listen on the WFMU website.
“Whether ambient like the perfectly descriptive “Whaliens” or darkwave like “Trinity Quadrant Cantata” or industrial like “Baleen Executioner” or recalling vintage ’80s synth-pop like “Departure,” nearly backing up into dubstep on “Unusual Capsule” or some mixture of all of the above as with the closing “Beau Travail,” this soundtrack for humans leaving one desolate expanse for another is disquieting yet oddly peaceful, in a way only nature can be.”
