I wanted to get a couple things out there before years end, I’ve been steadily recording and experimenting and with 2016 being a pretty shit year both politically and socially, I feel that this is the time for art and music to be more human and meaningful and cathartic. Most of the sounds on these releases are from sounds I recorded out in the city or in transit with additional synth and guitar and bass and various other sound sources added later for depth and texture etc.
One track on ‘Saturated in the Now’ starts with a recording of myself and my wife and a friend almost getting mowed down by a Porche driving erratically in a road rage incident with a taxicab in The Mission SF and there’s also an homage to the Oakland fire victims in “Ghost ship to Heaven”
…‘No Fascist USA’ from ‘An Umbrella For A Meteor Shower’ is made up of Berkeley protest sounds as well as various other sounds of senseless destruction from other Anti-Trump protests around the country.
These are both short trips and I hope you enjoy these latest offerings!
Stay tuned for my collaboration with Belial Pelegrim due out this Friday 12_23_16
Here’s a teaser track from that:
