summary of musical activity for 2014

Hello. It’s time for my annual summary of music output for the past year.

It’s been an amazing year for me musically and with the help of some collaborators, I’ve explored the realm of concept albums, whether they were rather controversial or dark and foreboding, they were great fun.

I’d like to thank the proprietors of all the internet labels, people like Jack Hertz of Sound For Good and Aural Films, Thomas park and Phillip Wilkerson of treetrunk, Stephen Philips of Darkduck, C.P. McDill of webbed hand, Thomas Mathie of weareallghosts, Michael Peck of Waiting World, Geoff Small of Earthmantra, Oystein Jorgensen and Rune Martinsen of Petroglyph, Mikael Hirsz of Xenomorph, Lee Rose of Happypuppy, John Tocher of Buddhist on Fire, rad Ross-MacLeod of Free Floating Music, Evgenij V. Kharitonov of 45 echoes Sounds, Paolino Canzoneri of Nostress, and Bing Satellites of BFW Recordings for the numerous opportunities that I’ve had to make all this music available to you, the people who download and listen. I’d also like to thank you, the listener for the time you take to give my music your attention. Special thanks goes to the people who collaborated with me and to the various bloggers who reviewed my works throughout the year. I’m excited about the possibilities for 2015 and can say for sure that there will be a couple more unsettling concept albums from Rebekkah Hilgraves and myself released.

Have a happy new year and now for the list.

a special Christmas Blind Flight, the day after

Hello.

I hope all of you had a merry Christmas and in the spirit of the season, even though it’s a day later, I am going to broadcast my annual Christmas show with one difference. I won’t be doing any voiceovers so that’ll be a bit unusual. The added benefit to not hearing my silly voice is that you’ll have more music, though there will be Christmas messages from some of the artists on the program which is a nice touch.

I’ll be playing music by artists such as Kevin Lyons, Cousin Silas, Bing Satellites, Peter DiPhillips, Shane Morris, Magnetic Wind, Jack Hertz, Mystified, C.paradisi, Tim Kays, Lucette Bourdin, Altus, Stephen Briggs, Ambienteer, Phillip Wilkerson, Ian Haygreen, The Ambient Visitor, Archive, Last Nights of Paris, Bunk Data and your host.

Please join me for a festive blind flight and the final show for 2014 tonight, starting at 9 PM central time on stillstream.com/

Thanks for listening.

a very merry Christmas and a huge thank you

Hello.

On this Christmas morning before everything gets going with the little ones opening presents, and preparing the Christmas dinner, I’d like to take just a moment to extend to each of you a very merry and joyful Christmas.

I’d also like to take the opportunity to thank you all for listening to my music and the Blind flight radio program on stillstream. I know that some of you have commented on my work on sites like bandcamp and the like and I wish I could respond directly to those comments but since I’m not able to, I’m saying thank you here for your support.

Your listenership and supportive commentary reaffirms that my art has meaning and value beyond even what I know at the time of composing.

I appreciate all of you more than I give words to and I look forward to a 2015 with many journeys.

Scott
