news of upcoming releases

Hello.

I wanted to let you know about some upcoming collaborations and releases as well as a couple of projects that recently came out that weren’t on my Bandcamp site.

As you may remember, I recently released an album called Child of Rage, a haunting yet somewhat ethereal dark ambient album based on the 1992 movie of the same name. In the notes of the original release, I mentioned starting the project as a noise album but that I had abandoned that avenue.

after a few weeks and some reconsideration, I decided to do just that and so I came out with “Child of Rage (Noise Edition) on the Harsh Noise Movement label.

Here is the download link for that album which is almost 2 hours in duration.

Sevenism and I, under the project name Nox Intempesta, will shortly be releasing another album in our classical music convolution series, a title that seems appropriate since we mangle and process such compositions into new and sometimes dark soundscapes, the latest of which will be called Archaeoacoustics. This is a little over 5 hours of material created from 4 different compositions from as early as the 7th century and as late as the 12th.

Wings of an Angel and I will be coming out with another collaboration entitled “I No Longer Love Blue skies” to be made available on June 6th of this year. The primary sound source that we started out with for this album was my track called “I No Longer Love Blue skies” released on the Sound4good compilation of the same name back in 2014.

I have also been submitting shorter works, on a weekly basis, to the Naviar Haiku project, found at http://www.naviarrecords.com

and I have a few albums so far that have been titled after some of the past haikus with plans to release more as the year goes on.

Along with all this will be the bimonthly release of additions to the ever-growing Drone Excursion series, some new noise albums under a different project name and more collaborations with Wings of an angel (more to come in a future update).

Thank you for your continued listenership and financial support of my work. I appreciate both more than I can say with words. Have a great weekend.

the blind flight, making an emergency landing

Hello.

I have come to the decision to suspend the program for as little as a couple of weeks and as long as a few months.

It was almost a year ago when I announced that the program would be on final approach and after hearing from so many of you and considering what it was about the program that, I myself didn’t enjoy, I decided to maintain the current flight path and bring you unique ambient music that you likely wouldn’t hear anywhere else.

Over the last couple of months, I have discovered that the joy in broadcasting for me is gone and so I feel that it is necessary for me to step away from the hobby for a while to reevaluate whether this is something I’d like to continue doing.

I have spoken to the management of stillstream.fm to whom I am eternally grateful for providing such a platform for my broadcast in the first place, and they understand.

Since I still enjoy performing live on the network, I will be doing that from time to time as the inspiration comes about. As you know, a lot of my releases are based on these performances so I hope to keep that going, even in the midst of my absence of having a proper show on Friday nights.

I’d like to say now what I said almost a year ago and that is I’d like to thank all of you for your listenership of the program, your interactions in the chat room and by email and to all who downloaded the podcasts and gave me your time when you were able to.

This hobby, aside from allowing me to bring interesting music to you, has allowed me to not only make a lot of new friends and connections, but it has also given me the opportunity to support ambient artists by playing their works and featuring them in shows, at times, dedicated completely to their music alone.

To all the record labels who have so generously provided me with physical copies and downloads of your albums, I appreciate your support as well in helping me to realize my dream that I have always had to be a broadcaster.

Last, but certainly not least, I’d like to give great thanks to my friend Melissa Roe who has given generously of her time and voice to help with intro and outro material for the program. Her contributions have given the show a bit of a different voice than it used to have and that made it more unique.

My intuition tells me that the dream is not over, I just need some time away for a while so I’m certain the program will return and when that time arrives, you will be the first to know.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for exploring sonic curiosities and traveling with me each week from your mind to the outer edges of the galaxy.
