2021 News III

Hello all. Hope you are all doing well this holiday season. Here is the 2021 news wrap up with regards to my semi-infrequent musical activity.

As I refuse to use Soundcloud for a variety of reasons, the “Ephemera” album will be where singles and other non-album tracks will go. Most will have their own graphics and recording dates, when available. Check back often as I post fairly frequently. This collection was started back in July, and is different from the “Lithium Toolbox” series in that not all the tracks were designed with remixing/soundsource use in mind. Also note that, due to the ‘ephemeral’ nature of the collection, some tracks may appear and or disappear depending on my thoughts regarding them at the time, and other singles previously released by themselves may latter appear in this collection. I will attempt to keep people up to date on this via Bandcamp messages, but I have a bad habit of forgetting when busy with other endeavors.

The “Time Theories” single/EP is an experimental industrial/noise concept that I may return to later. I was hoping to do an entire LP regarding the concept and had linear notes regarding each track, but unfortunately the inspiration disappeared after the first few tracks. Might return to this in the future, but for now I hope you enjoy what was released.

Finally, the “Curse Of The Modern Error” albums were completely unexpected. During the month of November, the apartment below me had a faulty exhaust fan in their apartment which was so loud that it reverberated through the floor of my apartment and was audible in all rooms (not an amazing feat given how small my apartment is). This caused significant distress and sleeping loss due to it often running for hours on end, frequently between 12-8AM. Determined to make the best of a sub-optimal situation while waiting for the property management to fix the issue, I recorded two albums of heavily manipulated field recordings. No other synthesis was added. Pure industrial drone.
