Many thanks to Duane Williams for premiering “Blue Moon Frequency #2b [Fall Mix],” my newest remix with Geiger Von Müller, last night on WWOZ. The track is now available as a name-your-price download on Bandcamp. More details over on the release page. Catch the archive of Duane’s show on the WWOZ website, and the playlist here. And a new video will premiere Sunday October 25 in Tyler Weaver’s MacroParentheticals newsletter so make you’re you’re signed up!
Alka’s new album Regarding the Auguries is OUT NOW! as a physical release through the Very Records website as well as digitally via all the usual places. I provide guest vocals on the song “King Card” which ALSO features Vince Clarke, which I believe makes me only 2 degrees of separation from Erasure, Depeche Mode, and Yazoo (which I believe makes all of YOU 3 degrees!).
The Dark Outside returns! Part of Aerial Festival, this edition will be a “one-off 24hr online radio broadcast featuring sounds and music no-one has ever heard (or will hear again) inspired by the legacy of artist Kurt Schwitters.” Go to furtherin.live for the stream; I’ve got a brand new piece called “Karnawał Dusz” in there somewhere.
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.
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, 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.
Just in time for Halloween, a sci-fi/monster movie themed music video for “Trinity Quadrant Cantata.”
