USA, I love you!

Now hold on, you say, there’s much to love about the USA, but what warrants this blatant display of affection? Well, dear reader, I am so happy to announce that the music video I shot for Rodèlle‘s track I’m Afraid I’m not (see it below!) was named official selection at the Red Rock Film Festival in Utah! This is the second film festival in the USA that has made our music video its’ official selection. Earlier this year the Great Lakes Film Festival in Pennsylvania did the same.

Of course both Rodèlle and myself are very happy that the video is getting some love from the festivals. I have to believe it is not because of either the music or the video, but because of the combination of the two. In fact I am absolutely sure that this is the case, since the Red Rock Film Festival has requested to use the audio from I’m Afraid I’m Not as the soundtrack to the ad for the film festival on local television, as a movie theater ad and on YouTube!

Aleide

My boy Rodèlle and his girl Aleide are getting some much deserved love in other ways too these days! The musical project centered around the lovely Aleide, called “Aleide“, has attracted the attention of famed design house Yves St. Laurent. Enticed by Rodèlle”s electro beats and Aleide’s breathy, seductive vocals on their debut track “1, 2, 3”, YSL asked them to rework the track to an 18 minute epic soundtrack for the YSL Spring Summer 2015 catwalk show. Of course they agreed and now you can’t open a Vogue, without encountering pretty Aleide. Aleide recently signed to L.A. based Lolipop Records.

I am very proud of my friends and wish them every success in the world! You go, guys! 🙂

Released 5 years ago today – Summer Of ’92

5 years ago today Shipwrec released my CausaliDox EP Summer Of ’92. In this post I take a look back and talk about what the tracks mean to me.

Sampling into Assimil8or

Today I decided to sample some non-electronic instruments into my Eurorack sampler. A tabla, a cabasa, a wooden flute and some pillbottles.

A critic in time

Today I spent some time selecting poems I wrote in my early 20’s for the website. It feels strange to critique myself and my poetry 20-some years later.

A synth sci-fi short story

I’m not recording. I’ve decided to just let this happen. It’s been going on for a while now. And I think it is probably too late anyway.

Lost in a memory hole

I’m not sure what happened. I got lost in a memory hole tonight. Well, I can reconstruct it, sort of. And it’s not like it hasn’t happened before.

Bob Knutton – It Sates Itself On Doubt

Ventured into darker regions today, tribal modular drums, echoing and distorted thrust me into the gloom. I explain how I recorded the track and what gear I used.

CausaliDox on NTRFRNZ Radioshow

This past week the track There Is Nothing In The World from my CausaliDox album Between The Leaves Lies Eternity opened the excellent NTRFRNZ radio show in Brasil.

sonOnos – Tomorrow

Got lost in the machines today. It was nice. 

CausaliDox – Cohort Death Signal

I wanted to make the Pro-One sound dangerous. Things started building from there. It sounds like an existential threat.

website redesign finished

Over the past 6 weeks I have worked on redesigning my website. It was hard work, but I am so glad I stuck with it, because I am quite happy with the redesign.
