Welcome New Members!

 

I normally try very very hard to get around to everyone new and at least say "hello" and look at your links and such on your profile pages.   I just haven't been able to keep up the the few weeks or so. 

 

I am so glad you are here!  This is a place to share your passion for music, for art, for photography, for drawing, for writing, for whatever blows your creative skirt up!

 

Please use the "blog" posts to talk to everyone - it's the best way -…

Track: Live at WNUR 2003 - James Johnson, Vir Unis, John Koch-Northrup

This was recorded somewhere around 2 or 3 am on a four hour overnight show on the WNUR radio station in Evanston - broadcasting to Chicago and the internet - hosted by Phonaut.

I'm playing bass - mostly straight bass on this track - although at other times during the night I was doing a lot of controlled feedback and various noises sourced from the bass.

James Johnson had a bevy of DX200's, microKorgs, electribes, and loops. The lovely piano in this is from him.

Vir Unis…

My review of "Sky" CD by Mathias Grassow

Mathias Grassow's vast discography includes also many archive recordings on CDr formats and the original double CDr release of "Sky", released back in 2000, belongs to most treasured of them. Now, thanks to young Swedish label Gterma, "Sky" was revised and edited, with some new parts added, making one album on… Continue

My review of "Living At A Higher Frequency" 2xCD by Julio Di Benedetto

"Living At A Higher Frequency" is an introduction of Julio Di Benedetto's music released on his own Digital Voices imprint at the end of 2008. It's quite unusual when artist debuts with 2CD album, and on the top of that, packaged in beautifully looking and decently designed 6-panel digipak. Applause for Julio (and Taylor… Continue

My review of "Cloudlands" CD by Aqua Dorsa

When discovering this amazing co-work album more than one year ago (released in May 2009), I was already familiar with Oophoi's long body of work, but the name of Enrico Coniglio was brand new to me. Fortunately, this changed quickly during the following months. Back to this rewarding collaboration,… Continue

Updates, been awhile ...

Well it's been awhile since I posted anything. Thought I'd mention a few things that might be of interest:

  1. The transition of StillStream.com to Electro-Music.com is now complete. Looks like they are off and running, which is great news. And I am now free to work those 80 hour weeks I've been working, play with my kids during off hours, and hopefully squeeze a little music making in here and there.
  2. I re-released another of my old Blue Water Records titles on Earth…

Hypnagogue Podcast 61

Don't operate heavy machinery while listening to this episode. Six long-form pieces, each falling in the 14-16 minute range, make for a mostly calm and quiet flow. Close listening reveals the depth and texture within; casual listening simply relaxes. Carve out 90 well-deserved minutes for yourself and hit "Start." Enjoy the journey.…

Lowell Levene-Sims - new album on Relaxed Machinery

I'm very, very proud to announce the new album by Lowell on my label. I've played it many times over the last few months and I truly enjoy the emotion and raw feeling Lowell emotes from his bass and from found objects. He describes his work as "primitive ambient" - and that describes it well.

 

Some of this abum is challenging - certainly. Some of it dives into the emotional beauty of bass guitar - gently moving. Some of it evokes the raw tension of post-rock. It even hints at…
