Coming soon: A Picture of Good Health Vol 3

I’m happy to once again contribute to Wormhole World’s compilation series A Picture of Good Health. Volume 3 comes out in two parts on July 14 as a digital release and CD. I’m on 3.2 with so many music friends and collaborators including Letters From Mouse, Toxic Chicken, Xqui, Whettman Chelmets, WIP, BoyCalledCrow, Geiger von Müller, Sound Effects Of Death And Horror, and Alan Morse Davies, to name just a few. Proceeds go to CALM, and pre-release is available now.

SURPISE! New song

The immensely talented “neo-cubist semi-deconstructionist blues guitarist” Geiger von Müller asked me to remix his song “Blue Moon Frequency #2b,” out now as a name-your-price download on Bandcamp. There’s a beautiful video by cgi director Paal-V too. Everything’s linked here thanks to Skopemag.

The Dark Inside May 2

The Dark Outside is hosting another Dark Inside virtual event with Further_In. I’ve got a brand new track on it called “Heliotrope” (the very same that you can hear on Jeff Albert’s Scratch My Brain today). Tune in from 6am CST / 12pm UK until about 9pm CST / 3am UK, Saturday May 2-May 3, for more aural goodness at furthin.live or Twitch.

The Da-Dark Outside this weekend

The Da-Dark Outside, a 24+ hour radio broadcast of recordings that have never been heard before, was scheduled to occur this spring from Kurt Schwitter’s Merz Barn in Langdale, Cumbria. Instead, for the first time ever, the Dark Outside will broadcast online starting tomorrow at 12pm UK (6am CST). There will be no tracklist, no listen again function, no archive. It’s playing once only. Go outside, far away from anyone else, and listen for as long as you can. See if you can figure out which piece (it’s called “MerzBowHaus”) is mine. Link for the broadcast + alphabetical listing of participating artists is here (Cosey Fanni Tutti!? Amazing).

Lagniappe: I made this image months ago, but I’m happy to have accidentally socially distanced us all.

Harm on I Heart Noise

A huge thank you to I Heart Noise for premiering “Harm” off the upcoming album Farewell, Doomed Planet! They also gave it a really nice write-up on the blog:

[Harm’s] sole focus is Atmosphere with a capital A, one of utter coldness and desolation – the ethereal/melancholic vocals being a cherry on top of the proverbial cake. While it may not cause millions to change their mind about climate it certainly moves you in a way that any really well crafted song should.
