New releases now available:
Fower / Fowk – Dinzu Artefacts (DNZ24)
Tapes sold out at source. Download available now on my Bandcamp, and a very limited number of tapes available soon.
Studies exploring the limits of tape machines. Recordings of low frequencies and noise repeatedly overdubbed to create thick, grainy textures. Found voice samples appear as ghostly commentators.
Monosphere – TVEI (tvei28)
All tapes sold out. Second run available soon. Download available on TVEI Bandcamp, as well as my page.
Monosphere comprises two iterations of monophonic, autonomous computer music. Performed with a custom Max patch, the pieces explore inhuman and unpredictable dynamics, gradually rendered with extreme quietness. Drones, sine wave clusters, gentle noise.
Review – Irregular Crates
With Net and Megan Steinberg.
Sound Room 76: Third Space (Tarkk’ampujankatu 18)
Kaukana Väijyy Ambient: Ravintola 931 (Kehräsaari B)
verz returns to Hundred Years Gallery on March 2nd. Ryoko Akama and I will perform While Listening, by Thomas Martin Nutt (featured on VI007, dear martin). Guests Sonic Luz (Klaus Filip/noid) will perform with DIY optical synthesisers.
The following evening we’re in Huddersfield at Coffee Evolution. Sonic Luz perform again, and I’ll play a solo synthesiser set.
First release of 2018 is the debut duo album by James L Malone and myself. Microcomputer feedback vs guitar. Improvisations edited for length, recorded in summer 2017, and available now on Confront Recordings. It’s a noisy one, this.
“Disjointed scrapes and rustles push through a layer of fibre-glass noise, the lack of audibility adding to a growing sense of unease…You might be able to relax if you could figure out what was going on, but, as it is, those consoling details are just out of earshot. KcKcKcKrrrrrrcKcK. Bbbbmmmph. Chchinggg.”
