"I like this picture. There is lots of vertical elements happening, slightly leaning trees, practically perfectly straight sign and then leaning mail boxes mixed into the huge arc formed by various tire tread in the dirt road. "

Radio. Real Radio.

I've heard my work (on other's music) on the radio for over 20 years. All over the place. Not just on the radio, but MTV, TV commercials, Movies, the Grammys, you name it. Walk into Trader Joe's or Starbucks and my kids get bored with, "oh I worked on that..."

And we've had Ascendant play on the radio before. Huge spins on Hearts of Space, Star's End, and other major players in the ambient, down-tempo & psychill space. We've been hugely fortunate with that support from all over the world, especially since we're doing this all independently...

But something happened tonight. 

We had a new track play on Alien Air on KXLU in Los Angeles.

Okay, if you're not in LA, this means nothing to you, but that show has been on the air for 30 years here. And when I was a wee teen here in the suburbs of LA (before the internet, kiddo) KXLU is the only place we looked for new music: punk, new wave, electronic or otherwise. That was the place. And tonight, they played Ascendant.

I guess I share this because, with the internet, we take so much for granted, and even though most stations have a 24/7 webcast, as does KXLU now, I have never been been so buzzed to hear music come out of a little mono portable radio. 

Feeling fortunate and humble.

Terrestrial radio. (The new exclusive.)

Having Undergone Further Modification

Posted by Avery Mann on September 20, 2014 at 12:39pm 0 Comments

Decided to swap out some of the hardware on the main body of the SG in order to more closely match the earlier modifications done by swapping out the nut for brass and the black Kluson tuners for gold Kluson Wafflebacks.  Here are the photos.

And, yes, there will be further customization in the future, such as the selector switch and the cable jack.  Not sure yet if I want to switch to gold speed knobs, or not, but time will tell.  I will also be modding the fingerboard dots to custom SG trapezoid dots of abalone shell design.  Pics will be forthcoming with each mod.  Comments and questions…

Scott Lawlor, EugeneKha and Mister Vapor - Three Moons

Posted by Evgenij Kharitonov (EugeneKha) on September 19, 2014 at 3:00pm 2 Comments



Mister Vapor posted a nice, plum drone in late summer of 2014 called "Jupiter". Scott Lawlor picked that sound up and created 3 pieces, each based on a moon of Jupiter. Scott and Vapor asked EugeneKha to add some elements to the compositions, and Mister Vapor joined in to add a final layer or three, artwork and mastering.

This release is a collaboration in the truest sense-- it exemplifies the kind of cooperation made possible by internet communication.

Imagine yourself taking a trip around the Solar System's largest planet, surveying the topography of each of three of its amazing moons.

Recent Spins

Posted by eyes cast down on September 19, 2014 at 3:00pm 10 Comments

What's been playing lately?

Update: 9/19/14

John Renbourn. Palermo Snow. One of my favorite acoustic guitar players since I discovered his masterful Black Balloon album years ago. This recent collection showcases John’s ever-growing compositional chops. Some of these tunes are practically symphonic. A guest clarinet player adds a distinctively urban flavor to several pieces.

Pat Metheny. Day Trip. Fantastic trio work with bassist Christian McBride and drummer Antonio Sanchez – who played the best, most musical drum solo I’ve ever heard in the Unity Band’s Chicago gig back in March. Pat’s return to my musical radar looms bigger all the time.

Pat Metheny. New Chatauqua. One of the first albums from Pat I ever heard, an early ECM solo effort. Lots of nice high-string guitar work here, and a stylistic range so huge one album could barely contain it. The solo acoustic tune Country Poem remains a high favorite; it’s worth buying the album just to hear this one tune.

Pat Metheny. One Quiet Night. Pat spent some quality time with his baritone acoustic guitar to fashion this collection of acoustic solos, both originals and covers. The master at his contemplative best.

Pat Metheny Unity Group. Kin (<--> ). We had the pleasure of seeing this band live in Chicago earlier this year. Their two albums are some of the best jazz I’ve ever heard, simply some of the most musical playing - in any musical style. Don’t miss these guys!

Steve Roach & Brian Parnham. The Desert Inbetween. The shimmering, gritty expanse beckons. Terrific, earthy work. I hope Steve and Brian work together again. Some of Steve’s guitar work is particularly ethereal.

Solitaire. Ritual Ground. Steve Roach and Elmar Schulte pair up for this get-your-earth-on deep-night rite. The closing track, In the Forest of Ancient…
