Hello Everyone... Today marks the release of EXIT, my new release on Inkbeak Records. This will be the first release on Inkbeak to be filtered through Bandcamp and the best part?(other than the music itself) It is absolutely FREE!!! I would be honored if you had a notion to download it, listen and even offer your thoughts. I truly hope you enjoy!…

Bandcamp

I've done the basic research and Bandcamp's looking pretty darn good. I'm seriously considering mapping the Music page of my site to a Bandcamp custom domain.

So it's time to pick some brains: if you work with (or have worked with) Bandcamp, please summarize your experience here. What rocked your world? Any recent horror stories? Any recent horror stories that haven't been resolved?

Thanks in advance!

"The Bodily Origins of Song Structure" from Psychology Today

People all over the world sing songs, and the different songs they sing have certain things in common. It has long been known that songs tend to be constructed from musical scales; that is, from a limited number of pitches or intervals. While there is great variety in song structures the world over, certain patterns of melodic shape (that is, how pitch is patterned over time) tend to turn up again and again. Such similarities…

At last, time to kick back and finish the project

So, now that I've finished 2011's performances I can now take the recordings of all those concerts back into the studio, mix them up with new field recordings, synth ideas and other jiggery pokery and hopefully emerge some time early 2012 with an album ready to pass on to some label, net or otherwise.



It's now nearly14 months since I first started doing field recordings in Berlin over a period that took me through to May 2011. During that time I recorded urban sounds from…

Giving "Change" a Big Bear Hug

My review of "Immersion" CD by Laocoön

I would like to focus on this rather unknown project leaded by California based sound designer John Broaddus. Even if Laocoön "Immersion" CD was released long time ago, back in 1998, on John's own Parnassus Nump Records, to me, this album is like well-hidden treasure that should deserve more attention from ambient…

Special CDr

At last the varnish and sandpaper have been put away and we're ready with a very special edition of our much downloaded Collected Locations album.



The issue contains a high quality Taiyo-Yuden CDr that's been picture printed and then sleeved in a bespoke and carefully handmade American Oak veneered slipcase. Each is numbered and there are only twenty copies (which equates to quite enough fretsawing, bonding…
