Perspectives Article


The people at Perspectives of New Music just published my essay on Stockhausen and the Catholic church in their latest issue.  It's on jstor and in print, but if anyone out there actually wants to spend a few minutes reading, I'm happy to send it over.

Routine Symptoms

At long last, my solo record Routine Symptoms is OUT! over the past year I've been gathering and organizing the pieces of this album into something I'm very, very proud of. the sound sources come mostly from the places and people I've been lucky enough to spend time with over the last 365 days and are puzzled together with what proved to be some very time-consuming, often vexing amalgamations on my part. recorded in a bedroom, an airport, at Walden Pond, really all over the fucking country, I'm overwhelmed with gratitude in presenting this to you. hope you enjoy.

In celebration of the birth of Idiopathic Records, our band Coward will play two shows this month: Oct. 20 and 27 in Oakland and LA respectively.  We'll be joined by a handful of excellent acts (including a solo set of mine in LA).  Please come out if you're in the area(s).

Holy Cheever Church

Very grateful to Chris Riggs (formerly Oberlin/Detroit) in Chicago for putting out two new releases of music I helped make.  The first is an hour long free improv I recorded with Ian McColm at the end of our silent film accompaniment tour in June at his home in Alexandria, VA.  Second is the premiere release by my new band Coward with Kiran Arora (ex-Brutes).  Also an uncut free improvisation, "Dragged On Asphalt" comes from the first of many sessions we'd ever played together.  Very proud of both of these and of all the new music on Riggs' Holy Cheever Church Recordings.

video: Indoor, one.

So grateful for the work of Robben T. Munoz in putting together this fascinating video for my track "Indoor, one."  Between the furious energies of camera movement and lights, to stark landscapes and superimposed E.E. Cummings text, I can't imagine something more fittingly suggestive with an exploring affect that much of this solo release intends to create.  The music comes from the first track of my forthcoming record "Routine Symptoms, due on Amok Recordings by the end of September.
