The activity just never stops with collaborations and interesting projects, here’s the latest one with Mike Benoit where my piano playing takes some unusual directions into the Avant Gard and experimental realms.

Hi friends and fans.

Here’s the link for tonight’s unplanned next edition of the isolation concerts, episode 5 of season 2.

In this one, I am using a brand new library I just got called Raw Strings from Sudden audio and I even revisit the main theme of the title track of my 2013 release called Times escape.

Please share it on your social media accounts as I no longer have a presence on those platforms.

I thank you for listening and hope you enjoy this performance.

almost time to say good-bye to 2020

Hi friends and fans.

It’s an understatement to say that 2020 has been a transformative year for the whole world and in my personal opinion, in not a lot of good ways, except for music.

I wanted to take some time to recap for you some of what I feel were my most memorable and favorite albums I released over the year, though I still have 3 left to go for the month of December.

In January, I released dreaming the Timeless Dream (a Tribute to Edgar Froese) my first album where I experimented with the Berlin school sound a bit. It’s had some airplay and a nice review from one world music radio and if you like this style of music, I am confident that you’ll enjoy this release.

In February, I put out Bad Seed, an album which speaks to issues of profound and severe child abuse through the eyes of a fictional protagonist who endured such life altering trauma but managed to find healing in the end: a profound album that paints a picture of bleak desperation transformed into hope for the future.

In march, who knew that our world would change forever because of a virus? It wouldn’t be until May that I would finish working on but everybody’s gone, so I will never know, an album is still as relevant today as it was 7 months ago which, even now, seems like another lifetime.

Finally, like so many other artists, starting in April, I began giving isolation concerts over the internet, though there were no visuals to go along with them, all the webcams were sold out near the beginning of the pandemic but people seem to enjoy my concerts even without visual accompaniments. The Isolation Concerts, Volume 12, is one of my favorites in the series.

It is my hope that my music has helped you cope with one of the most unusual years in our modern history and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and comments on my sonic excursions over this last year.

an idea

hi there.

I had this idea of bringing back the blind flight and putting it on my bandcamp like I had done before but only having each episode be around an hour or so, featuring mixes of my own music, released and unreleased tracks.

What do you think of the idea?

another bandcamp Friday is upon us

Hi friends and fans.

Once again, on November 6th, it will be time for another @bandcamp Friday so I’d like to draw your attention to some releases from my back catalog that you may have missed the first time around or don’t know about if you’re new around here. With over 300 releases, it’s easy to miss albums so I like to give some guidance periodically to lead you through the vast output of my work.

Journey Through the Bo├Âtes void

Probably my most popular and longest album, clocking in at 5 hours, created from just shortwave radio transmissions, you might think this might be tedious but reviews have kindly said otherwise.

Drone Excursion 009 (Suspension of Time)

What more appropriate album for this curious season of our world when the days run into each other and time itself seems to be still.

That Sanguine Light of November

My first solo piano album and it’s fitting for a time when we’re descending into the dark winter night and uncertain days of an uncertain future.

Finally, Transition

an album written in 2017, 5 days after I came home from my brother’s funeral, this album was nominated for ambient album of the year by One World Music Radio and is the second in a series of albums written in memory of Joseph Michael Lawlor.
