Hello friends and fans.
As you’re well aware, this Friday is another day when bandcamp is waiving it’s fees for artists and so I wanted to take the opportunity to present to you another collection of albums from my catalogue which you may have missed over the years or aren’t familiar with if you’ve recently started following my account.
Since I’ve been uploading preview tracks for a new album of improvisations and compositions inspired by the naviar haiku project, links which I’ll also include if you haven’t seen them, I thought it appropriate to give you a little history in music from when I first learned of this weekly challenge and how it’s been a privilege and honor to participate as much as I have throughout the years.
Most of these albums were released in 2016, which, by today’s standards, seems several lifetimes ago.
The Vast Kelp Forests: my first album of music inspired by the naviar Haiku project released in 2016
Dreaming of Dark Clocks" 2 live performances over the internet when I hosted the Blind Flight radio program on stillstream.com/
Show me the Glint of Light: a more new-age sounding album going back to my roots when first performing in the 90’s around Northeast Ohio
The Silent Hour of Night: three more ethereal tracks performed live on stillstream.com/ when I hosted the Blind Flight radio program.
Jumping ahead to 2017, you will find There is no Road through the Woods: an album of shorter improvisations in different ambient styles
and finally, going back to 2016, First Autumn Morning: Three live performances over the internet when I had my Blind Flight radio program on stillstream.com
towards the light:
a wild sea
Lightning bolts split the mountaintop (it’s not called that on the original video since I came up with the proper title later)
and finally, fallen butterflies
I’m still working on tracks for this new album and it’s all material using my brand new komplete kontrol system from native instruments and reaper though I still use sound forge and audacity. No sense abandoning old tools because you get something new, everything has value and purpose.
I hope you will find these albums and videos as enjoyable to listen to as it was for me to record and produce them and I hope to be a part of this weekly challenge for as often as I am able to participate.
Thank you for your continued support of my work in sound and narrative, I appreciate all of you.
